Reality TV Education in Cosmetic Treatments?

41% of 18-24 year old women learn about treatments from reality TV programmes

lip fillersThis statistic comes from RealSelf, a website dedicated to cosmetic treatments and procedures. It provides a somewhat worrying picture, as the nature of reality TV is not particularly focused on educational value.

On the plus side,it could be argued that reality TV programmes have succeeded in making more people aware of cosmetic treatments, but unfortunately, they can often give a misguided view regarding the nature of the treatments. Exposure of ‘overdone’ pouty or lumpy lip fillers, or heavy-handed BOTOX which immobilises expression can give a distorted impression of the industry as a whole.

Yet for every overdone treatment there are many more that are far less obvious.

Practitioners like Dr John Quinn (founder of Quinn Clinics Bristol) focus on natural-looking results that are still effective, but leave the patient looking fresh and youthful rather than looking a little unnatural.

Dr John Quinn has over 10 years experience in cosmetic dermatology treatment and works closely with leading manufacturers and industry associations; so patients are in very safe hands.

Dr Quinn uses top brand products including the latest non-permanent dermal fillers and popular BOTOX. His clinic also offers an array of the latest skin technology, dedicated to improving the skin from the inside out.

Rather than relying on reality TV, a consultation with an experienced aesthetic doctor can give qualified and individual advice.
