“Outlawing these procedures is a watershed moment in the protection of young people,” says

.

“I understand how it can feel like there is constant pressure to look a certain way, especially when we are bombarded with unrealistic body standards through advertisements and social media.

“Bad cosmetic procedures have left far too many young people emotionally and physically scarred, often necessitating more invasive procedures to correct them. “The lack of regulation in the aesthetics industry leads to so many dire repercussions,” Victoria Brownlie of the British Beauty Council, which supported the campaign, said.

“Professionаls with reputаble credentiаls аre competing with those who hаve received no trаining аt аll. ”
