The Medical Board of Australia recommends that, for patients under 18, minor procedures (anti-wrinkle injections, dermal fillers) require:

A seven day cooling off period before minor procedures for all under 18s, and when clinically indicated, evaluation by a registered general practitioner, psychologist or psychiatrist”.

We would not treat you on the day but have a thorough discussion about the procedure to include costs, risks and expectations. You would have to go away for at least a week to give it some though before being able to come back for treatment.

From a consent point of view – we use the ‘Gillick competence’ rule to judge whether you can consent to the procedure. Having parental consent is therefore not necessary if you can consent for yourself but, to be honest, it is best to let your parents know before having any treatment.
