The Love Island effect! Aesthetic clinic sees 200% surge in demand for lip fillers

The popular reality show has caused more people to seek cosmetic treatments


SISU Clinics, a chain of physician-led aesthetic clinics in Ireland, has seen a massive increase in demand for cosmetic procedures since the current season of Love Island premiered. 

The cosmetic treatments in demand include lip fillers, botox, and dermal fillers – but in particular, SISU Clinics have seen a 200% surge in bookings for lip fillers across their Dublin, Cork and Killarney clinics.

More than 35% of these bookings are from men for “Mantox” (Botox for men), marking a 5% increase in SISU’s steady 30% male patient base.

“Pop culture personalities tend to pique interest in certain treatments,” said SISU CEO Pat Phelan. “But the Love Island phenomenon is on a whole new level. The increase in patients booking off the back of the show is astonishing.”


“Women of all ages are looking for that Megan Barton-Hanson look – full lips, smooth skin, perfect nose. Men are impressed by the male contestants, so they are also driving SISU’s bookings with male patients.”

Due to the show’s popularity with SISU’s patients, the clinic is now offering a Love Island Package.

The package includes three areas of Botox and 1ml lip fillers for €450. Patients can also add nonsurgical rhinoplasty (nose job) to the special package for €350.

“As the market for aesthetic treatments continues to boom, consumers are eager to be treated as individual patients and given access to innovative cosmetic treatments,” Phelan said.

“SISU’s clinics exist to meet that demand, whether it’s driven by Love Island or the natural desire to put one’s best face forward.”

SISU Clinics are a chain of doctor-led, patient-centric cosmetic medicine practices. SISU’s doctors perform nonsurgical aesthetic treatments based on patients’ unique needs, desires, and individual physiology.
