There are several reasons behind banning or making it illegal.
Nevertheless, keep these amazing facts as knowledge of bygone beauty secrets.
Japanese Eyelash Perms:
Japan has always something to excite your imagination. You all have heard till now temporary or permanent hair straightening or curling.
The concept of providing an extra bend to your eyelashes is also not very unfamiliar. Probably a massive percentage of women try eyelash curlers to give volume to their lashes.
But, can you fancy semi-permanent curling of eye-lashes which could stay at least for a month? Yes, this method invented for semi-permanent eye-lash curling can last at least for some time.
What are these eye-lash perms? You might be astonished to know that it is a rod kind of a thing attached to your eye-lashes with a chemical substance that can do the magic for you. The method, as expected was welcomed in open arms all around the world.

Polypropylene Breast Implants:
This next bizarre method that you might never want to know.
Basically, it is the breast implantation. This Polypropylene breast implant procedure came into existence in the 90s era and gradually disappeared in 2001.
How was this controversial beauty treatment done? Well, it was achieved by causing irritation in the implant pockets which in turn promoted the fluid production in those pockets thereby expanding the breast size.
Now you must be thinking why did it disappear? The valid reason is that it can give you an uneven breast size and moreover the size could even exceed the patient’s desirable size.
So, no point taking such a risk.
Novocaine as an Anti-Aging Treatment:

And if it is so, then surely Novocaine anti-ageing injections have not passed from your sight just like that?

However, the 60s and 70s era have witnessed its uprising. Why? As it was believed to render ageless look, reversing the loss of hair and the most important of all: improving arthritis!
On such words and assurances who will not approach towards it? As usual, celebrities like John F. Kennedy also converged on it.
But sadly, FDA banned Novocaine for any non-aesthetic use.
Well, it is the toughest beauty treatment in the world. At least, it used to be!
As soon as the doctors started campaigning, weight loss is necessary as it is the root cause of almost all medical issues, people all around the globe have started running after the gym, the dietitians. On such circumstances, these fat burners and diet pills entered the scene and instantly captured market. The fat burner or cutters reminds us of a bizarre thing which can give you yikes.
Well, it is the tapeworm diet. Feel like puking? Of course, who will not? The diet demands you to consume the tapeworms, which will suck away the excess calories. But it also sucked out all your nutrients, so what’s the point?
Good news is that it was practiced centuries ago and now declared illegal. Thank God.
Sorry, my Canadian friends, this version of hair straightening is no longer available to you. Maximum 0.2% of formaldehyde is safe for human but once it exceeds the maximum percentage, it is not safe enough. As a matter of fact, the Brazilian blowout beauty treatments that were banned in Canada had formaldehyde content over 12%.
However, one can still find various versions of Brazilian Blowouts in the US, maybe it sticks to the limits of formaldehyde content.
The concept of Fish Pedicure is not very old, just about 9-10 years ago. The Fish Pedicure is a controversial beauty treatment process. Here, you need to submerge your legs half in a tub full of water and tiny garra rufa fishes are released which will eat up your dead skin cells of your legs leaving behind amazingly soft rejuvenated legs.
But, as a matter fact, it is banned in the USA because the thinking of cleaning pedicure tubs is beyond the bounds of possibility. Some further claimed that the fishes forcefully eat-up the dead skin cells and it is totally inhuman.
However, it’s still legal until this day in many other parts of the world.
