Lip filler patients getting younger, yet most UK clinics don’t request ID

Only 4% of clinics request photo ID from patients before carrying out a lip filler procedure, and approximately 10% would only do so if the patient were “particularly young looking”.

Meanwhile, 78% said they only rely on information that the patient volunteers through form completion, according to new stats by WhatClinic.com.

More than half of survey respondents (58%) said they believe the continuing demand for lip fillers is the result of influences from social media and celebrities.

WhatClinic.com also discovered that 42% of its web traffic to lip augmentation pages came from visitors aged 18–24. Dr Susanna Hayter, a GP and aesthetic practitioner, said: “I’m getting more and more enquiries from young girls regarding requests for lip fillers. They usually want a consultation and treatment on the same day.”
