“What happened to the cost of living crisis?” Angry viewers hit out at This Morning segment about ‘Botox for lunch’ as ​​some say they can’t even afford food

  • This Morning viewers were not happy with This Morning’s segment on Botox
  • Dr. Amiee Vyas came to the show to inject employee Fleur with the treatment
  • John Lewis advertises Botox consultations for £195-£325
  • Viewers said it was “irresponsible” to promote a procedure that many cannot afford

This Morning angered viewers today by airing a botox consultation amid the cost of living crisis.

Beauty professional Dr Amiee Vyas was invited on set to demonstrate how the anti-ageing drug is injected after John Lewis announced it would offer Botox consultations in its stores, priced from £195.

Dr Amiee performed a non-surgical ‘tweak’ on This Morning team member Fleur as hosts Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby.

The moment was intended to be light-hearted, but viewers were not happy as many felt outraged that the show would promote it as “Botox for lunch” when people are struggling to make ends meet.

Reflecting on the rising popularity of Botox treatments, Dr Amiee said: “People are looking at their faces a lot more during lockdown.

“But these days it’s much more about how you feel inside yourself.

“Treatments and enhancements like botox are becoming part of self-care. It’s normal, like people going to the dentist every six months for a check-up,” she said.

The pro added that there is “a lot less stigma” around it.

She said people would trust John Lewis to offer the service because they were part of Britain’s heritage.

She said the brand is “known for doing its due diligence.”

The retailer offers Botox consultations, with prices ranging from £195 for one area to £325 for three.

“You need to have an appointment, a full medical consultation to review suitability, treatment and follow-up,” Dr Amiee said.

The beauty professional and Phil addressed the fact that John Lewis had “allegedly” said it would offer discounts on other treatments.

Dr Amiee admitted that offering discounts was not “best practice”, but said John Lewis would vet doctors dispensing the treatment.

She added that treatment would last three to six months and switched to injecting Fleur.

Viewers were not at all happy with the segment, with many saying it was ‘irresponsible’.

Others also took issue with the fact that the show referred to the treatment as “midday Botox” as they said the show was supposed to focus on covering a life crisis.

“It’s a bit irresponsible that This Morning is promoting Botox on morning TV,” said one.

Cosmetic procedure on your lunch break? I can barely afford a chuffing food shop,” wrote one.

“This is the height of capitalism. Congratulations,” said another.

“What happened to the cost of living crisis this morning? But a lot of money for unnecessary botox,” said one.

“They’re promoting it,” asked another.

John Lewis offers botox treatments

Retail giant John Lewis will soon offer botox injections for customers in six of its UK stores – for just £50.

The department store, which already offers some beauty treatments such as eyebrow shaping, is expanding its offering to include an anti-aging treatment.

The retailer said the expansion of its treatments follows growing customer interest in anti-wrinkle treatments.

Stores in London, Edinburgh, Milton Keynes, Southampton, Kingston and Cambridge will offer customers Botox alongside other treatments.

Shoppers at these stores will also be able to go for laser hair removal, facials and some other beauty treatments.

However, the service will only be able to be booked if you are over 25 years old.

Customers will also need to attend a consultation before receiving Botox injections, which are provided in partnership with the Cavendish Clinic – and any injections will be administered by a doctor.

Jason Wilary-Attew, head of beauty at the department store, said there was a “growing awareness and demand” for beauty treatments among customers.

He said: “In the last two years we have seen a boom in home beauty technology and launched our first ever beauty technology department with LED light masks and facial toning devices.”

He added that the store had partnered with the Cavendish Clinic, which he described as a “trusted medical clinic brand”, to provide the service.

Anyone looking to make an appointment will be looking at £195 for botox on one area of ​​the face up to £395 for three areas of the face.

For a small area such as a dimple on the chin, the price is much cheaper at £50.

In addition to Botox injections, customers will also be offered other dermal fillers – including lips and nose.

Prices for lip fillers range from £295 to £395, while a nose job will set you back £450.
