Botox injections and lip fillers banned for under-18s in England - BBC News

Under-18s are no longer able to get Botox or dermal lip fillers for cosmetic reasons in England.

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

But campaigners say the rules do not go far enough, and it does not cover other procedures like thread lifts some seek to get the popular 'fox-eye' look.

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