In the face of an uncertain economy, the U.S. beauty devices market is slated to maintain its solid single–digit performance for the second year in a row in 2022. Consistent innovation draws a larger number of consumers to this segment. In fact, we’ve seen a shift in consumer behavior, wherein they have extended the time between their visits to dermatologists and spas in favor of maintaining an at-home skin care regimen through the regular use of beauty devices.
App-connected beauty devices have been in high demand, helping consumers to achieve a more personalized treatment experience in the comfort of their homes. Such devices are often perceived as an affordable alternative to visiting spas, salons, or dermatologists for skin care treatments. Their popularity has powered several new product launches in the area, some of which include the following:
- In August 2022, NuFace introduced Mini+ and Trinity+ to be used in conjunction with its app.
