Save Face Director Ashton Collins talks to ITV's Good Morning Britain about our campaign to ensure that all UK countries make it illegal for under 18s to have cosmetic injections such as dermal fillers and botox. After campaigning for several years, a law was passed in England in 2021 banning practitioners from offering injectable treatments to under-18s. Save Face worked alongside MP Laura Trott for more than 2 years to ensure the law was passed in England. Since then, we have seen a 44% increase in teens accessing these treatments in Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland and we are calling upon their Governments to implement the ban urgently.
