The Daily Mail this week reported a seasonal increase in demand for anti-ageing treatments such as botox and fillers, with a surprising cause.
The pressure to look good on the school run has caused a definite growth in non-surgical procedures as “Yummy Mummies” book treatments.
In a previous survey, 1 in 5 Mums admitted that they felt under pressure to look glamorous on the school run. It has also been estimated that in addition to buying school uniform and equipment for their offspring, mothers also spent an average £87 each this year to make sure they look good themselves; with money going on clothes, hair cuts, jewellery and beauty treatments.
This trend is one that staff at SkinViva would agree with. They have seen a steady flow of Mums book cosmetic injections and treatments to keep their skin looking fresh and youthful.
A spokesperson explained:
The summer is often a quieter time for the skin treatments industry, so we ran a £50 off special offer during the summer holidays.
However, this year we’ve stayed really busy throughout the summer as mothers have had treatments before returning to work or school run activities.
Now that the kids are back at school, we have a second influx of patients who simply have not had the time over the summer to take care of their skin.
Being a parent can be stressful, but whatever they cope with, they still want to look fresh and relaxed. Especially after extensive sun exposure, they are now keen to pay attention to their skin.
