Botox treatment increases amongst Americans

More people are getting Botox, according to the latest statistics from the American society of plastic surgeons.

Botox treatments are up 8 percent since 2011, with more than 6 million procedures performed last year. The plastic surgery industry experienced an increase in demand for the third year in a row, with minimally invasive procedures like Botox and chemical peels leading the way.

Overall more than 14million people had plastic surgery in 2012. Surgical procedures like breast implants and facelifts were down slightly, yet one million Americans still went under the knife.

Breast enlargement is the most popular surgical procedure, followed by nose reshaping and liposuction.
