Over 45s avoid their reflections


Once Brits hit mid-40s they stop looking in the mirror


  • Just 9.4% of Brits aged 45 and over look in the mirror up to 10 times a day compared to 51% of 18-24 year olds
  • 32% of women are worried about aging compared to 12% of men
  • People from Essex and Yorkshire are most vain, Northern Irish are least likely to check themselves out
  • Bottled blondes are the most image conscious


A UK-wide study by cosmetic surgery group Transform shows that British adults like to admire their image in the mirror up to 10 times every day – but start to avoid their reflection once they reach 45-years-old.

Transform spokesperson Shami Thomas said: “Britain loves its mirrors – at least until we reach 45-years-old.


“Our research proves that once we hit our mid-40s we are far less likely to want to see what age and time has done to our faces and bodies."

Post-summer pampering at Transform

Transform Cosmetic Surgery in Glasgow is offering you the chance to revitalise you summer skin with the latest in Botox treatments – Vistabel®.


Hot weather and sun exposure can really affect your appearance; however, Vistabel® is designed to rejuvenate the way you look.


The non-surgical cosmetic treatment only takes about 15 minutes and works to soften harsh lines, wrinkles and crow’s feet. A very fine needle is injected into the problem areas causing the muscles to relax and crease lines to disappear.


Results are visible within 4-10 days and last between 3-4 months, making now a great time to treat yourself before the festive season starts.


With over 35 years of experience, transform on George Street is Glasgow’s premier cosmetic surgery clinic. Vistabel® smoothing injections start from £199 for one area, with packages available. Find out more from a Transform Non-surgical Co-ordinator at your free consultation.
