Description

“Canadians are relying on at-home BPC options as a convenient way to save money on more expensive spa/salon visits. This driver is expected to be particularly important as consumers adjust to higher costs of living. Consumers gained a lot of experience with at-home BPC treatments as a result of COVID-19 lockdown measures. As such, they have grown more comfortable with performing some of these treatments at home, though they continue to admit that at-home results do not always stand up compared to professional outcomes. Having said this, there continues to be a gap in proficiency that consumers are eager to fill, with many interested in improving their skillset.”
