How Young is Too Young For Lip Fillers? The Kylie Jenner Effect

When a teenage Kylie Jenner first started making headlines over the growing size of her lips, it didn’t take long for the public to take notice and start whispering about her potential lip injections. While the reality star first denied that she had lip injections, stating that her changing appearance was a mixture of puberty and makeup, the truth eventually came out. The young TV personality was only 15-years-old when she first got lip fillers, and according to Kylie herself, she made the decision after being mocked for her “small lips” by a boy.

When Jenner opened up about her controversial decision, lip fillers soon started making headlines in magazines and gossip websites—as everyone was buzzing about Kylie’s new pout. The reality starlet received a lot of backlash for her decision to get the treatment at such a young age. However, it is no secret that lip fillers are one of the most popular cosmetic treatments for women today as they can help transform your overall facial appearance.

While most of us would admit, we would love to have those plump and beautiful Angelina Jolie lips, Kylie’s open and honest interview brought up a big question—how young is too young for lip fillers?

It is a topic that many people have started to discuss following the big Kylie Jenner reveal, and here at Heritage Family Practice and Aesthetics, we are more than happy to be open and honest about lip fillers, after all, we love them just as much as Kylie Jenner does. While lip fillers are overall a very safe and easy treatment, they are not approved by the FDA for teenagers or adults under the age of 21.

For women who are of age, lip fillers are a great way to get the fuller, plumper, and enviable lips that all women want. The best part about them is that it doesn’t take long to get a perfected pout. Fillers don’t take long; you can fit an appointment in during your lunch break! They can give your lips that natural, fuller look that we all wish we were born with.

Today, Kylie Jenner is still making headlines and she is still sporting beautiful, full lips. She has even transformed her now world-famous lips into a best-selling makeup line, featuring lip kits that are flying off the shelves.
