Celebrity Influence on Skincare Treatments Ireland

Celebrities, Cosmetic Treatments and Social Media

We asked all of our respondents would they be influenced by a celebrity in getting a cosmetic or aesthetic treatment done:

“83% said no while only 17% said yes”

We then wanted to find out if they were more aware of treatments that had become popular with celebrities compared to those that hadn’t. When asked if they had heard of PRP treatment a whopping 82% said no, however when asked about the ‘Vampire Facial’ 72% said yes!

PRP Treatment is the correct name for the ‘Vampire facial’ that has been made famous by celebrities, perhaps we are more influenced by celebrities than we thought.

Do you know someone who had or regularly has aesthetic treatments?

  1. Yes- 66%
  2. No – 25%
  3. Don’t know- 9%

What Do The Irish Aesthetic and Medical Survey 2016 Results Show Us?

  • There is still a secrecy surrounding Aesthetic treatments however this shows that most treatments are not obvious.
  • Most people are still unwilling to to talk about about getting non surgical treatments such as Botox
  • The majority of people would be willing to have a non- surgical Aesthetic treatment
  • The average age for your first treatment is 35 but this looks set to decrease
  • Botox is still the number 1 treatment that people are getting or that they want
  • In the future lip fillers look set become the most popular first treatment.
  • People are more open to the idea of having non surgical procedures – this is similar to a recent study done in the US.
  • The majority of people still buy their skincare from a chemist. Chemists are only allowed to stock cosmetic products which have no effect on the skin.
  • We are influenced by celebrities in what treatments we are aware of which then likely lead to what treatments we may end up getting.
