Teens Hurting Themselves Doing 'Kylie Jenner Challenge'

BOSTON (CBS) - The "Kylie Jenner Challenge" is all the rage these days.

Kylie Jenner is known for her full lips. On the reality show, "Keeping Up With The Kardashians," she has been seen squeezing and plumping them in the mirror to get them bigger.

Now, teens are trying to puff up their lips just like the reality star, but this could be a dangerous trend.

Teens are sucking the air out of cups, shot glasses, and bottles, or using vacuum cleaner hoses to suction their lips to get them to swell. Then, they're posting the pictures online.

In some cases, kids have had to seek medical help for painful, swollen, and bruised lips or even cuts requiring stitches from broken glass.

Some experts say doing this again and again could lead to permanent scarring.
