Every summer since 2015, people have been tuning in to see the beautiful people of ‘Love Island’, and this year is no exception. Viewers in Ireland are particularly invested this time around due to the inclusion of Maura Higgins who hails from Longford.
As ever, whenever the contestants show themselves, talk turns to the flawless looks, perfect skin, hair and teeth and the eternal question, “What work have they had done?”
Many, if not all of the contestants, including the guys, are likely to have had lip fillers, botulinum toxin injections and dermal filler treatments, to enhance their already stunning looks.
Cosmetic aesthetic clinics across the country often report a marked rise in requests for treatments on the back of this TV programme. The ‘Love Island effect’ increases bookings for lip fillers, non-surgical rhinoplasty, dermal filler and botulinum toxin treatments, etc.

Fuller more sensuous lips can be crucial in making some people feel more confident and attractive. They give an immediate result, with no downtime and the treatments can be tailored over time, to give you a look you desire. They can balance asymmetric lips, as well as plumping up narrow lips and filling wrinkles around the mouth.
The injectable material used contains Hyaluronic Acid which breaks down in the body over time, giving a non-permanent cosmetic effect, but one that can be repeated.
Dermal fillers are used in non-surgical rhinoplasty to alter the look of your nose without the need for invasive surgery. Eden Medical use Restylane, a safe, temporary, non-allergenic method of enhancement to help lift the tip of a drooping nose, help a bumpy nose look straighter, and balance out the overall shape.
The whole treatment should take around 30 minutes, and results can last for 6-12 months, depending on the areas treated and the metabolic rate of the individual patient.
Dermal fillers allow you to enhance the shape of your face in a non-invasive and non-permanent way.
As we age, the collagen and elastin in the skin start to reduce, and the skin begins to sag. Dermal fillers can plump up these areas, particularly the cheeks, and make the skin look fresher and younger. The Hyaluronic Acid contained in the filler also attracts water molecules to the injected areas so the skin will feel more hydrated.
Botulinum toxin is used in anti-wrinkle treatments. These injections work by blocking the nerve impulses to the muscles in your face that cause wrinkles and permanent lines. These muscles will gradually relax, giving your face a smoother, wrinkle-free look.
Each treatment lasts for around four months, so repeat treatments will be necessary to maintain a specific look.
