Professional Cosmetic Services - US - December 2014
“While growth in the professional market appears to be steady, declining interest in services among an aging population could be problematic. Concerns about looking older are pervasive and suggest opportunities for personal care products that bridge the gap between the retail and professional markets.”
– Shannon Romanowski, Senior Beauty and Personal Care Analyst
This report looks at the following issues:
- Trial and interest in cosmetic services declines with age
- Obesity rates are on the rise
- Social media and technology wield strong influence
Concerns about appearance are dominated by weight and belly fat, leading to strong interest in cosmetic procedures such as liposuction and tummy tucks. In addition to weight, pressure to maintain a youthful appearance is driving interest in anti-aging procedures such as eyelid surgery and BOTOX. While appearance-related concerns are pervasive across age and income groups, younger, affluent adults are the most willing to turn to professional services, and consequently represent the core consumer of both invasive and non-invasive cosmetic treatments.
This report builds on the analysis presented in Mintel’s Salon Services—US, June 2012, but is the first US report to cover both salon services and cosmetic surgery procedures.
This report covers the US market of professional cosmetic services including:
- Salon/spa treatments, such as hair services, nail services, and body treatments
- Non-invasive cosmetic surgery, such as BOTOX, microdermabrasion, and chemical peels
- Invasive cosmetic surgery, such as liposuction, facelifts, and breast augmentation
This report does not include sales data for companies, brands, segments, or retail channels.
