There has been a monumental step forward this week as MPs have voted in favour of the Botulinum Toxin and Cosmetic Fillers (Children) Bill 2019-21. The legislation will make it illegal for those under 18 to access dermal filler and botox treatments.

We have been campaigning for a change in the law since 2014 and in that time, we have supported dozens of young people whose lives have been seriously impacted upon because of a cosmetic procedure gone wrong. Earlier this year, we launched the 'Had Our Fill' campaign in collaboration with The Sun and one of the key objectives was a call for legislation to protect young people from being exploited by unscrupulous practitioners. MP for Sevenoaks, Laura Trott saw the campaign and decided to take the matter forward. We have been working with Laura throughout the development of her Private Members Bill and we will continue to offer our support as it progresses to the next stages.

Save Face Director Ashton Collins and MP Laura Trott discuss the Bill on BBC Politics Live.
