England bans lip filler and Botox injections for girls under 18



England has banned botulinum toxin injections - often known as Botox - or dermal lip fillers for girls under 18.



The new law aims to protect young people from harm after years of efforts to regulate the non-surgical beauty industry.


Reports estimates show up to 41,000 Botox-style procedures were carried out on under-18 girls in England last year.


According to the Department of Health and Social Care, there were up to 29,300 dermal filler procedures for under-18s in 2017.



Before the new law, under-18s were able to have Botox-style procedures and dermal fillers.



But with the new ruling , it is expected that Wales and Scotland will also follow suit with a similar legislation.Latest Post
