… the aesthetic industry has found ways to grow since lockdowns commenced in the spring of 2020.
How in-clinic treatments have evolved with COVID-19
Did your beauty routine suffer as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic? You most certainly weren’t alone! Laser hair removal treatments, skin treatments, and other beauty regimens done in clinics or spas came to a screeching halt once the pandemic changed our lives.
While many scheduled laser hair removal treatments were delayed as the world dealt with COVID-19, that wasn’t the only service impacted. Botox, facials, and microdermabrasion all suffered due to canceled in-clinic visits. The result?
Many consumers who had relied on in-clinic care had to educate themselves better about at-home self-care in order to maintain their routines to some extent and avoid any potential public crowds. But it wasn’t just consumers that had to learn and adapt because of the pandemic.
Dealing with adversity was a common theme among most businesses as they navigated the difficulties that came with the COVID-19 pandemic, and the self-care and beauty industries weren’t immune. However, the aesthetic industry has found ways to grow since lockdowns commenced in the spring of 2020.
Vogue takes an in-depth look at the topic in an article published on July 23, 2021, illustrating how in-clinic skin treatment facilities have evolved since the beginning of lockdowns associated with COVID-19.
