Botox and Other Dermal Fillers Are Now Forbidden in England for Under-18s

Botox Forbidden in England for Under-18s

In England, a law has finally come into force prohibiting people under the age of 18 from receiving injections of botulinum toxin which fills the lips for cosmetic purposes. The new restriction aims to protect young people from unwanted consequences. Situations, when the introduction of botox or fillers is necessary for medical reasons, are an exception. In this case, permission must be obtained from a specialized specialist, a list of which is given in the law.

According to government estimates, about 41,000 such procedures were performed in England last year for children under 18 years of age. However, the statistics also show that in 2017, there were up to 29.3 thousand such aesthetic attempts among minors.

A campaign has also been launched urging other countries to act quickly in order to stop young people in England from crossing borders to perform these kinds of operations.

Interestingly, there is still no law in England that requires a doctor to be formally qualified or trained for this type of aesthetic procedure.
