Getting lip fillers has become a front-and-centre kind thing in the media, thanks to celebs like Kylie Jenner and Megan Barton Hanson being vocal about using them.

While there are zillions of clinics and aestheticians that can safely give you a fuller pout, there are just as many places that will put yourself at massive risk.

And no-one wants that.

Irish clinic Consultant Clinic, which also has clinics in Manchester, Liverpool, Birmingham, and London, has taken to social media to blast people choosing non-medics to get lip fillers – and the results are scary.

They uploaded snaps of the treatment-gone-wrong (which should be avoided for if you're in ANY way squeamish) and told teh story of a woman who wanted to get her lips done for a wedding but went to a beautician to get them, in a non-clinical home setting.

They wrote, '' We post for public interest and your safety and information – to make you aware of exactly what risks you're taking by choosing a non medic as your injector. The beautician, couldn't have done a better job of an intravascular injection if she had tried, and blocked off her arterial supply, by injecting a huge blob of filler into the vessel, starving it of oxygen and life.''

The horrifying story continued, ''The lips became ischaemic, and were agony. The tissue of her lip rapidly died and rotted on her face, and yes you can see correctly – actually FELL OFF.''

The Clinic does say that this can happen with even highly trained practitioners but the fact that the doctor didn't recognising ischaemia and necrosis is dangerous.

The post continued, ''Is this a risk you really want to take with your face, the essence of your identity and self-esteem? Thank you so much to the lovely @dr.alaa_aref for allowing us to use her images, and for helping to raise awareness.''

People were horrified by this tale and took to the comments to say so. 

One said, ''This is terrible! Frustrating to see such poor injecting, poor understanding of anatomy and poor management (or non existent rather) of a serious complication! We need some serious regulation in this industry!''

While another wrote, ''This is so, so heartbreaking. I can’t imagine what she’s feeling now. I really hope there’s a way out through surgery and that the practitioner gets held accountable for this.''

Take this as a major warning – if you're going for this type of procedure research you will be messing wth your face BEFORE you have it done because the alterative is so not worth it.

"We are all human. And we all struggle. Don't suffer in silence," she continued.

"Don't feel embarrassed to ask for help. I'm 22. I have anxiety and depression. And today I started therapy again. And so the journey of self-love begins for me."

Her post came the day after she wished her boyfriend and fellow Riverdale star Cole Sprouse a happy Valentine's Day; "You make me very happy. Happy Valentine’s Day, my love."

Sprouse himself has gotten candid about his normally-private romance with his beautiful co-star in GQ Magazine.

"It's not something that we hide, or it's not something that we show off," he simply said. "It's just something that exists."

Lili announced that she was taking a pause from Twitter last December, saying that the "site is not good for my mental health."

Reinhart told ET in October that she wanted to show a realistic portrayal of her life.

“I try to be open because I'm not putting on a show,” she said. “I'm not trying to look perfect… my life in general is not extremely glamorous. I do a lot of really cool and glamorous things, but that's not my day to day."

"I like to show off myself as being in my natural habitat, which is pretty much just in my bed, eating," she said.

We truly appreciate her honesty and self-care PSAs; we all need time to ourselves, and mental health should always be a priority.

A significant number of the population at once stage in their lives had Justin Bieber as their phone lock screen.

Don't deny it, our hunky, beautiful crushes were featured as our wallpapers for longer than we care to admit.

It looks like supermodel Hailey Baldwin is still in that stage of her existence, but at least hers is relevant to her current romance. The gal has got a school-aged Justin Bieber has her lock-screen, and we're GASPING.

Eagled-eyed fans spotted the phone screen after a paparazzi snapped Hailey walking around New York City last Sunday.

It's a hilarious photo of the pop star, we must say. We wonder what photo he has on his own lock-screen? It could even be the same one as Hailey's, for all we know..

Her hubby Justin is allegedly seeking treatment for depression, People reported. The 23-year-old singer is apparently exhausted and is seeking help, leaning on Hailey for support.

The religious wedding service where the pair would invite a wider circle of friends is rumoured to be postponed yet again

The ecclesiastical wedding can't take place as "…right now, Justin’s focus is getting well mentally," an insider explained to People.

"Hailey is very supportive- Justin is very open about that Hailey does nothing but help him. He would feel even more lost without Hailey – he is very grateful. They are both focused on having a happy marriage," said the source.

We hope the Biebs is getting the help he needs, but we have to applaud Hailey's lock-screen. It's nostalgia goals, and we might just have to go back and listen to Baby another thousand times.

Bieber soared to fame at the tender age of just 13-years-old, and recently spoke about the difficulties of growing up in the public eye.

He said: "I didn't really have a chance to find who I was apart from what I did."

"I just needed some time to evaluate myself: who I am, what I want out of my life, my relationships, who I want to be – stuff that when you're so immersed in the music business you kind of lose sight of."

The source stated that "this is just something Justin has to deal with" and that he is actively seeking professional treatment. "He is in outpatient therapy and getting help every day," the source elaborated.

People magazine allege that Justin is feeling "down and tired" and "has been struggling a bit", but the treatment and health issues have nothing to do with Hailey.

The pair tied the knot last September, with people close to them saying that Justin is very happily married: "It's just something else that he struggles with mentally."

"He has good help around him and is receiving some treatment. He seems confident he will feel better soon."

Paris Jackson, daughter of the late King of Pop Michael Jackson, is seeking treatment for issues relating to her emotional and mental health.

According to Entertainment Tonight, Paris is currently living in a mental health facility following a whirlwind year of work engagements, new music releases, photoshoots and public appearances.

A source spoke to ET, saying; "After a busy year of work engagements that took her all over the globe, Paris decided that she needed to take some time off to reboot, realign and prioritize her physical and emotional health."

"She checked herself into a treatment facility to aid in her wellness plan and is looking forward to coming out of this revitalized and ready to tackle the exciting new projects that await her," the insider added.

The young model suddenly ceased sharing any images on social media from the middle of December, and failed to join her family on holiday in Toyka over Christmas.

This is an unusual move for the star, who is very close with her younger brothers especially. Her followers then began to speculate that her mental health may have been suffering.

The 20-year old has had a manic year career-wise, and had to face the heartbreaking death of her grandfather Joe Jackson.

She has been hugely sought after in the fashion world, and since her Hollywood debut, it's apparent that the youngster is a new 'It Girl' on the scene.

Paris last hit the headlines in September 2018 for calling out paparazzi who were verbally attacking her as she left a New York Fashion Week event.

She has regularly discussed her struggles with self-confidence and depression, which drove her to attempt to commit suicide for the first time when she was only 13-years-old.

She later attempted to take her own life again aged 15 multiple times, leading her to enter a therapeutic school;

"I was going through a lot of, like, teen angst. And I was also dealing with my depression and my anxiety without any help," she told Rolling Stone in 2017. 

Hopefully she's getting the help she needs.

Selena wore a black outfit for her outdoor activities, striking a pose with her friends and looking healthier than ever after snow-tubing.

Gomez entered a treatment facility for anxiety and depression last October following her struggle and ongoing issues with Lupus, a disease which caused her to require a kidney transplant in 2017.

After undergoing a trip to hospital in September, the star appeared under a huge amount of strain. 

A source told E! News that Selena "started to feel super overwhelmed" but just a week after entering the treatment centre she was "already feeling better than she did last week."

Since leaving her treatment programme in New York, Selena hasn't made many public outings or appearances.

She utilised dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT), a form of cognitive-behavioural psychology, while receiving treatment.

The 26-year-old told Vogue in 2017 that  "DBT has completely changed my life," adding,

"I wish more people would talk about therapy. We girls, we're taught to be almost too resilient, to be strong and sexy and cool and laid-back, the girl who's down. We also need to feel allowed to fall apart."

The former Disney star seems to rely a lot on her friendships for support during times of tough mental and physical health.

"I don't know what I would be without my friends. They've saved my life, they've been there for me through the thick and thin of it all," she said in a video for SGxPUMA.

We're so glad for Selena that she has such loyal friends, and wish her all the best with her health in future.

She's truly inspiring, it can't be easy to discuss mental health under the public eye.

Even though we have lived in Ireland for most of our lives, it's safe to say we will probably never get used to the bitter winds, frosty mornings and the bashing rain that we meet on a daily basis during the winter.

Along with our skin (and moods), our hair gets really damaged during this season – brittle, weary and just pure dull, which is not the best look for when we're heading on our Christmas nights out.

Well, Aussie has created a new Winter Miracle range which will bring your gruaige back from the brink of frostbite.

The shampoo, conditioner and its classic 3 Minute Miracle deep treatment will leave your hair nourished from root to tip.

Aussie Haircare Ambassador Ben Cooke says: “The Aussie Winter Miracle range will be your hair saviour for the winter season. Most women think summer wreaks hair havoc, but winter can be even more damaging.

"My top tip for glossy-looking locks is to use the Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Winter intensive treatment at least once a week – it’s extra-concentrated and you’ll instantly feel and see the difference.”

And ladies, it won't break the bank either. The Winter Miracle shampoo and conditioner is only €5.29 and Aussie's 3 Minute Miracle is only €6.59.

Sure, we'll only look smashing!

Still aged just 39, and with two young sons aged four and six, Joanna Anesti works at Maxus in Dublin, a leading media agency.

Last August, the otherwise healthy young woman began to experience seizures – which became more frequent as the weeks went by.

Concerned, she sought treatment, and shortly before Christmas, doctors made their diagnosis: advanced Glioblastoma multiforme. In short, they had discovered not one but two tumours on her brain.

And while she has since endured five months of gruelling treatment, the tumours have only expanded. More worryingly, a third growth has recently been identified. 

Understandably, Joanna’s outlook does not look overly positive. Indeed, doctors have now told her that she has just six months to live.

However, she and her family believe there is still a glimmer of hope: namely an innovative surgical trial in Belgium. Desperately short on time, the DCU-graduate hopes to travel there next month – if she can raise the eye-watering six-figure sum needed to cover her medical bills.

The initial surgery to remove the tumours will run to €50,000 alone, while other associated costs will stretch to further €150,000.

And although there is currently no cure for Joanna’s condition, the influential US health watchdog, the FDA, has approved the Belgium trail.

She has so far raised €20,000 – with one anonymous donor contributing a generous €5,000 lump sum.

Joanna herself remains remarkably upbeat too. "I believe that death is not the biggest loss in life," she writes on her blog, hopeforjoanna.com. "The biggest loss is the energy that dies within us every day while we are still alive.

"I’ll keep fighting and hoping no matter what the doctors tell me. Just because I am a natural born fighter and positive believer!"
