(Newser) – Lindsay Lohan, Megan Fox, and Hilary Duff are just a few of the celebrities rumored to have gotten Botox injections well before the age of 30. Others, like Kim Kardashian and Heidi Montag, have acknowledged using it. And the trend gets ever more disturbing: Fox News reports that more and more young stars are trying to look younger, even before they turn 20. One dermatologist says his youngest Botox patient was a 17-year-old model.

“Everyone does it,” he says. “I see maybe four or five well-known actresses a week, and half of those are under 30.” Sadly, a casting agent points out, “If someone told these girls to just get back to basics, don't stay out partying all night, don't drink, don't smoke, and don't do drugs, then they wouldn't need these quick fixes for their face.”
