The heart of the matter with Caoimhe – Aesthetic Treatments – Monday 1 February 2021, 10 pm on BBC 2 NI.




BBC Blas presenter Caoimhe Ní Chathail investigates the growing demand for treatments such as fillers and anti-wrinkle injections that seem to be becoming the norm with young people today.



Caoimhe wants to find out why people decide to have aesthetics treatments, how easy it is to get them and how important it is to do your research.

How safe are these procedures?

Caoimhe investigates how the aesthetics industry is unregulated in Northern Ireland which causes a lot of non-medical practitioners to be in charge.

Dr Chris Hutton explains the dangers around botched jobs and side effects that can include blindness and severe infections.

We meet Clodagh Ní Mhaicin, 26, from Belfast, who started getting lip fillers at 18.

The build-up of numerous filler injections over the years means that she’s left with residue filler needing to be dissolved, which is, as viewers will witness, a very painful procedure.

Belfast dance teacher Micheál Ó Coigligh is among the rising number of men considering anti-wrinkle injections.



On his consultation journey, he asks all the questions you need to know about anti-wrinkle treatments, including the critical one: “what age should you start getting botox?”

Former Miss Ireland Lauren McDonagh explains that she only started getting lip fillers was when she was crowned Miss Ireland in 2017 and one of her prizes was a voucher for a free aesthetic treatment.

Presenter Caoimhe gets a make-up lesson from local tik-tok sensation and make-up artist Emma Kearney from Newry.

Emma admits to having had lip fillers, but she is adamant about the importance of feeling comfortable in your own skin and to remind everyone that not everything you see on social media is how it seems.

Croí na Ceiste le Caoimhe is produced by Waddell Media for BBC Gaeilge with funding support from Northern Ireland Screen’s Irish Language Broadcast Fund.



Sarah Reddin is the Producer/Director on ‘CROÍ NA CEISTE LE CAOIMHE’.
