Don’t get us wrong, we love social media. It’s great being able to connect with you all and being able to support other independent businesses. And who doesn’t love a bit of reality tv?! We’re first to confess that we do! But sadly these platforms, as we all know, do have their drawbacks. One of the downsides is the immense pressure people feel when they compare themselves to someone else after seeing them online or on the telly. A high number of viewers sadly are our children, who scroll through heavily airbrushed photos that celebrities post and then end up wishing that they could have higher cheekbones, fuller lips or cat-like eyes too. This behaviour has caused a movement over the last few years which has been a surge in teenagers seeking tweakments. In fact, more than 41,000 procedures were carried out on those under 18 last year alone! Yes, you read that correctly! Not only this but a lot of the work was carried out by cowboys, who are not medically qualified or experienced, which has in turn seen some horrific botched outcomes such as blood clots and partial blindness to necrosis in the facial tissue.
