We collaborated with the BBC to highlight the gaps in regulation in Wales that enable practitioners to inject under 18s with dermal fillers and Botox. We worked with MP Laura Trott to bring in the law in England which came into force in 2021. We are shocked that Wales, Scotland, and Ireland have chosen not to follow suit. We talked to the BBC at length about the issues this causes not only the residents of these countries but also how the lack of action has led teens to travel across borders to access the treatments. Our accredited practitioner and advisory board member, Sophie Riddell also shares her views on how the gaps in the law affect her as a practitioner and her patients.

We are calling upon the Welsh, Scottish, and Irish governments to take action to protect young people from being exploited and harmed by unscrupulous practitioners.
