Call it the Botox boom. The latest statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons shows more people are getting botox.

Botox treatments are up eight percent since 2011, with more than six 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.

It's believed much of the increase is tied to the recovering economy and consumer confidence.
