One plastic surgeon wants the law changed after turning away children as young as 15.
Harley Street doctor Dirk Kremer says while it is illegal for under-18s to be tattooed or use sun beds, there are no such rules when it comes to the cosmetic procedures.
And he says the consequences of underqualified practitioners carrying out the treatment are grave — with strokes and sight loss among potential results of a misplaced jab.
He said: “More young people come to me asking for a certain look which gets more ‘likes’ and ‘followers’.” If his petition gets 100,000 signatures it will be debated in parliament.
