The rise of teenagers demanding anti wrinkle injections should worry everyone in the industry.

Dr Leah Totton, a former “Apprentice” winner, admitted to being shocked by the age of some of her would-be clients and spoke on the BBC Today programme about turning away a girl as young as 14 from her clinic.

Some industry experts are blaming the lack of action from the government since the Keogh Report, which recommended a central register of practitioners – whether for surgical, or non-surgical procedures such as fillers.

Instead the government said it did “not believe that a new regulated profession is the only way of improving patient safety by practitioners of non-surgical cosmetic interventions”.

Some clinics in the UK are reporting parents accompanying their teenage children to the clinic in the mistaken belief that they can provide consent for their child.

Clinics and practitioners should tread very carefully when considering treating clients who appear to be very young. The best policy is ‘if in doubt don’t do it’.

Teenage Botox on the rise

Many claims arise from poor patient expectation and if a client has to no lines and wrinkles to start off with they are likely to be disappointed with a lack of results.

Photography, immaculate record-keeping and clear judgement are essential with all non invasive facial treatments.
