Lip Fillers And Blushers

Question

What is the ruling regarding lip fillers and lip blusher? Many youngsters want to know.

Answer

Definition of lip fillers and lip blushers:

Lip fillers – The following is an excerpt from Healthline.com:

“Lip fillers are injections that give the lips a more plump and full appearance. The injections are composed mainly of hyaluronic acid. Sometimes lip Botox is done for a similar effect, but that’s not considered a dermal filler.”

Lip blushers – The following is an excerpt from healthline.com :

“Lip blushing is a type of semi-permanent cosmetic tattooing procedure achieved by depositing pigments in your lips using small needles.

While also sometimes called lip tattooing, this is more of a cosmetic enhancement rather than traditional tattoo art. Lip blushing focuses on altering both color and shape to create younger-looking lips.”

Ruling:

Lip fillers as well as lip blushers are in reality changing the form that Allah Ta’ala has given to human beings; therefore, it will not be permissible.  

If these procedures are not adopted as an adornment and cosmetic enhancer, but as a treatment for some ailment; for example a person’s lips have a defect and the only way of repairing the defect is by adopting the above methodologies, then it will be permissible to undergo the above-mentioned treatments, in order to make the lips normal. 

Note: The ruling above, is based on the definition quoted above; if you are referring to a different method, then kindly explain that specific method, we will then look into the matter.
