Cosmetic Procedures Market – Current Landscape

The rising cost of living has had seemingly little effect on uptake of procedures, with the market benefitting from a boom in procedures in 2021/22, following a pandemic backlog. Easing inflation in the years to come will offer further support to the market, with price a common barrier to entry for consumers.

Women are more likely to agree that invasive and non-invasive cosmetic procedures are acceptable compared with men. Advertising is also disproportionately aimed at women, with these factors driving uptake amongst women. Meanwhile, 7% of cosmetic procedures were performed on men, marking a rise of 121% compared with 2020/21.

Attitudes towards Cosmetic Procedures – Consumer Insights

  • Younger Millennials are the generation who are most likely to have had two or more surgical procedures, with this generation largely having grown up during an era of social media, known to foster insecurities.
  • Whilst overseas travel for procedures remains niche, it is more popular amongst women aged 16-34, with this pointing to the fact that women in this age group are likely looking to save money.
  • Fear around pain is a deterrent for 27% of non-users of cosmetic procedures and those not interested in procedures, signalling room to embed a ‘pain index’ into reviews.

Mintel’s full report contains an in-depth analysis of what consumers want and why, and how brands can tap into consumer demand to secure future growth.
