Local entrepreneur Karl Fitzpatrick has secured the Irish Master Franchise rights for the US based aesthetics and wellness business, 4EverYoung Anti-Aging Solutions.
4EverYoung combines popular cosmetic treatments with wellness services. Established in 2014, it is headquartered in Florida and its treatments include cosmetic injectables, hormone replacement therapy and vitamin infusions.
Discussing why he had chosen to bring its products to Ireland, Mr Fitzpatrick said, 'Spending on anti-aging regimes is now a multi-billion euro industry and with the consumer placing increased emphasis on wellness, I was actively seeking a premium aesthetics franchise to disrupt the Irish market and 4EverYoung was exactly what I was looking for.'
Acknowledging that the industry urgently needs regulation, Karl called upon the incoming government to put standards in place to ensure consumers in Ireland are protected against incompetently administered treatments.
He said he would seek to lead by example by ensuring all clinics will be doctor led.
Speaking about their expansion into the Irish market, co-founders of 4EverYoung, Carlton Washington Deniz Duygulu, stated, 'We are delighted to be entering the Irish market and with Karl's proven experience in growing international franchise concepts, we look forward to seeing 4EverYoung clinics open across Ireland over the coming years.'
Mr. Fitzpatrick confirmed that the headquarters for 4EverYoung in Ireland will be located in Wexford town and said the franchise has the potential to create over 100 jobs across the country over the next five years.
