27% of women say coronavirus lockdown has aged them

More than a quarter (27%) of UK women say being stuck indoors during coronavirus lockdown has aged them, according to research by non-surgical cosmetic treatments digital marketplace Glowday.

The 25-to-34-year-old category felt this the most, with 44% stating that Covid-19 lockdown had aged their face, the report found.

As a result, 43% would now consider an aesthetic treatment. Just under a quarter (23%) have had or would undergo botox and almost 20% would consider another type of injectable such as dermal filler or threads, while others are keen to have microneedling (20%), chemical peels (23%) and laser hair removal (43%).

22% of respondents said these treatments boost their confidence, rising to 31% in the 25-34 age category. However, 47% said they didn’t know what to look for when it comes to finding a qualified practitioner and a further 38% were unsure about how safe certain treatments are, the report found.

The survey also revealed that 73% felt uncomfortable talking to friends about aesthetic treatments, while 77% felt the same way about speaking to family members and 8% colleagues at work.
