Reality TV fixture Kim Kardashian may have raised a few (unfrozen) eyebrows with her recent admission that she’s already used Botox at age 30.

But for some young women, the question seems to be, “What took you so long?”

My mom paid for it. It was like a little birthday present.”

Torres, who went under the needle at age 18, is one of many teens and early 20somethings who are turning to Botox in an effort to not only smooth existing furrows, but fend off the aging process itself.

The trend, at least at our offices, is younger people.”
