ACTIONABLE RESEARCH ON GEN Z AND MILLENNIALS

Instagram is banning plastic surgery filters on the app.

Instagram is banning plastic surgery filters on the app. The platform will be removing “all effects associated with plastic surgery” from their face filter gallery, as they “re-evaluat[e]” and try to prioritize users’ well-being. Previously, filters like “Plastica” augmented lips and brows to show a post-plastic surgery look, and “Fix Me” plastered pre-surgery markings and notations (like “lift” and “fill”) on users’ faces. Instagram also recently modified its restrictions against weight loss products and cosmetic procedures. (The Cut)
