Although TikTok is well known for its amusing and fascinating filters, its most recent one has generated a lot of buzz among its fans. Users can make their faces look younger by applying the TEENAGE-FACE filter. While some find this to be a humorous way to remember their adolescence, others worry about the potential repercussions of such an accurate metamorphosis. Now, anyone can make a TikTok filter, and users may utilize specialized programs to produce 2D or 3D assets to include in the filter. There are many different kinds of filters; some are amusing, like quiz filters that tell you what kind of dog you would be, and there are even AI-based filters that can turn your selfies into futuristic AI-generated photographs. According to the reports, body confidence expert Danae Mercer Ricci is one of those worried about a specific TEENAGE-FACE filter. She showed how lifelike the filter is in a video, demonstrating how anyone can use it to photoshop teenage faces onto female bodies.

However, some users have claimed that the filter misrepresents a teenager's look, casting doubt on the filter's veracity. Some users, on the other hand, have found that the filter helps them. Users who are at ease identifying as non-binary, transgender, fluid, etc. should be especially aware of this. Many find it soothing to take a look back through the lens and imagine who they would have been without the filter when they were teenagers. Social media filters have been a subject of discussion before. Many body confidence proponents have spoken out against the detrimental impact that filters might have on their users' mental health.
