Teen toxing on the rise

Tue

 

The number of teenagers requesting Botox has risen in the last year, according to an investigation by the Daily Mirror, with a 15% rise in demand among the youth of Britain. The craze, known as ‘teen toxing’ has sparked fears among industry professionals that unregulated use of the dermal injections could lead to health problems in the future.

When correctly administered by a trained provider, Botox can be tremendously effective, but most clinics advise against giving it to people under the age of eighteen. Surgeon Dr Shoib Allan Myint was very concerned about the health implications of having Botox so young, Dr Myint said ‘This trend…has a potential for unnecessary complications from untrained injectors who are not physicians.’

Despite the warnings, thousands of teenagers are opting for Botox jabs in the mistaken belief that it will prevent them from ever developing wrinkles, some even let their mothers or friend’s parents inject the solution. The news that reality stars Harry Derbridge and Katie Price are firm supporters of the treatment is not likely to stem this worrying trend for children receiving Botox.

President of the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons, Fazel Fatah, was horrified by the use of fillers on teenagers, saying ‘It can be open to abuse on many levels. Girls in their teens have absolutely no need for Botox, it is a complete myth that it will freeze their face and keep them looking young. Injecting Botox is also a very skilled job.’

Louis Walsh denies Botox rumoursIndividuals considering undergoing Botox treatment to smooth their wrinkles and improve their appearance could be surprised to hear rumours about Louis Walsh.

According to the Daily Mirror, the X Factor judge has denied receiving the anti-wrinkle injection despite looking much younger on the latest series of the ITV1 programme.

The 59-year-old, who previously admitted he had surgery to remove bags from under his eyes, claimed his appearance was "all natural" when questioned about his new look.

A friend told the newspaper: "The truth is he keeps himself in great shape."

The rumours emerged after the revamped talent show made its way back to TV screens last week, with new judges Kelly Rowland, Gary Barlow and Tulisa Contostavlos joining the former Boyzone manager on the panel.

Walsh was reportedly "livid" after X Factor boss Simon Cowell paired him with 1980s singer Sinitta for the judge's houses round of the contest after he revealed he would like to work with Adele, the Daily Mirror reported. ADNFCR-2621-ID-800713132-ADNFCR
