Want to look a Million Dollars? Try paying it! Ireland’s most expensive beauty treatments revealed

beauty treatments 

  • Hair transplants are crowned the most expensive treatment at €19,204
  • Facelifts could set you back €12,000 – more than double the average (€4,728)
  • Average cost of a non-surgical facelift is €502, yet some clinics charge eight times as much (€4,000)
  • Diamond facials for €960 – more than ten times the average price in Ireland (€89)
  • A year’s worth of Ireland’s most expensive blow dries costs more than €21,000

The luck of the Irish prevailed for the latest EuroMillions winners and when money is no object, the country provides a whole host of high-end treatments to choose from, according to new research from private healthcare search engine,WhatClinic.com.

For those after the cream of the crop for their new mop, Dublin is home to the most expensive hair transplant at €19,204 – more than seven times the average price nationwide (€2,503). Yet despite the hefty price tag, search traffic for the treatment has almost doubled (95%) in the past 12 months.

Women looking for the perfectly coiffed look can rack up a hair-raising €21,291 a year by choosing Ireland’s most expensive blow dry (€175) every three days at The Art Team, Dublin. Pair this with Ireland’s most expensive manicure and pedicure, at €146 and €110 respectively, once a week and you’ll need an additional €13,312 at your fingertips.

Wealthy Irish wanting a pick-me-up can pay up to €12,000 for a facelift in an elite Dublin clinic, compared to the national average of €4,628. The procedure, which tightens the skin of the face to lessen the appearance of deep lines and wrinkles, as well as skin that has started to sag, has seen interest rise by almost a third (32%) in the past year.

A less invasive, but incredibly popular, treatment is the deep chemical peel which costs an average of €191, unless you visit one high-end Killarney clinic where you will be charged €3,500 a pop.

The perfect smile can also be bought, but at a jaw-dropping cost. Even though top of the range braces at the Ennis Orthodontic Practice will set you back a whopping €8,000, searches have increased 57% in the past 12 months. The priciest dentures can be found in Bray at an impressive €7,000, more than 16 times more than the national average (€425).

 Caelen King, CEO of WhatClinic.com, comments: “For the lucky few without any money worries, Ireland is home to some fantastic clinics that offer world class treatments, but at a cost.

“Regardless of your budget, and whether you’re looking for a major cosmetic procedure or a small tweak, make sure you do your research and find a practitioner you’re happy with. Don’t be afraid to ask about their qualifications, their experience in that particular treatment and any possible side affects or downtime needed.”
