botox-injections-sales.jpg According to recent reports, more and more women are saying no to Botox. New statistics from a study sponsored by the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery shows this emerging trend. However, this conclusion is not widely supported by other organizations or individuals. Allegran, the makers of botox, also doubts this claim.

Highlights of the study
a. It states that, as compared to 2006, Botox injections for women dropped by 15 per cent in 2007.
b. It was seen that overall cosmetic medical procedures increased by 2 per cent.
c. The survey also found that use of Botox among men increased by 10 per cent in 2007.
d. The use of Botox was the highest in 2006, which dropped by 13 per cent in 2007.

Possible Reasons
a. Botox is not a permanent solution.
b. Dermal fillers are seen as a better option by most women.
c. Adverse economic condition is another reason for the dropping popularity of Botox.
