Question:

Hi! I am 16 years old,and i wanna get a lip filler done.
My lips are quite full,at the cupid’s bow,but then it kinda fades down towards the corners of the mouth,it loses it’s shape and definition.I feel like i always have to put lipliner on to kind of correct it.
So my question is,can i get that done even though i’m underage?
thank you

Answer:

Generally speaking, we don’t advocate this in those under 18 years of age unless there is a significant deformity of the lips. Furthermore, we would need parental consent for the procedure to be performed.
