Lockdown has caused many of us to take a long, hard look in the mirror. And whether it’s the results of many months of being isolated, less dedicated to beauty routines or poor diet and excessive drinking, the word Covid Face seems to be every woman’s greatest fear.
So as rafts of women have been searching out some extra beauty help in the form of face and lip fillers, celebrities who have relied on these practises for years have decided enough is enough.
Recently, several celebs have decided to reverse their cosmetic fillers and dentistry, which has made us all wonder if the natural look is back in fashion.
So who are those who have embraced the ‘au natural’?
Molly is most well known for her stint in the famous ITV show ‘Love Island’ when she fell in love with her current boyfriend Tommy Fury. Since the age of 17 Molly has been injecting her lips with filler for the more plump look! However, in October Molly took the decision to get her filler dissolved to look more natural. In her recent vlog on her Youtube account she told her fans how she has had her composite bonding removed so she can take better care of her natural teeth.
Part of the world famous Kardashian clan, Kylie, the youngest sibling, is best known for her full lips which she achieved by injecting filler. She took to instagram in 2018 to tell her fans that she also had her lip filler dissolved.
Gemma Collins who has made her name from starring in The Only Way Is Essex is now reportedly worth a huge £2.7 million! Gemma has never been shy in saying that she has had a number of cosmetic procedures including botox and filler. The thought of her young female fans taking drastic actions to look like their idols, prompted Gemma to make the decision to reverse both her lip filler and botox.
Dr. Nyla Raja, founder and medical director of Medispa Cheshire, has personally performed over 65,000 dermal filler injections. She suggests that the uptick in women getting their filler dissolved has less to do with celebrity, and more to do with the dark underbelly of an unregulated cosmetics industry and, as a result, growing fear about risks if their injector isn’t properly qualified.
“I believe that when people go public about the dangers and what has happened to them, that influences young people a lot more,” she tells THE FACE. “We’re talking about administering a foreign body into someone’s face here. Forget about Molly-Mae – this trend has to do with the darker side of the sector. People are more afraid and more cautious given the lack of regulation in the non-surgical cosmetics industry.”
Waleed Taleb from cosmetic surgery Vera Clinic says: “Any cosmetic procedure should be something that has been fully thought through and discussed with someone you trust. As much as fillers and other cosmetic procedures can be reversed and dissolved this shouldn’t be something to be relied on.”
