Younger generations are driving the med spa boom, according to a new American Med Spa Association (AmSpa) study.
The medical spa industry is one of the fastest developing in the US, with revenues growing at a double-digit pace since 2010, and by more than 20 percent each year since 2013. According to the AmSpa’s State of the Industry Report, the 4 billion dollar industry projects to grow an additional 8 percent by 2020 as the Millennial population ages and invests in non-invasive procedures.
Millennials currently account for nearly 20 percent of medical spa patients, and growing. This age group (18-34) is dedicated to prevention, and enjoys the non-clinical environment and shortened wait times for appointments that med spas offer. It’s no surprise then that fully 50 percent of medical spa owners believe that their revenues will increase more than 10 percent this year according the AmSpa survey.
“Today’s society is highly in influenced by Hollywood, where looking younger has become the best way to feel younger,” says Alex Theirsh, CEO & Founder of AmSpa, in a news release. “Consumers are very focused on the many affordable and ingenious ways to retain that feeling of vitality and youth.”Next Story
