The Latest and Greatest

Who Are You?

Skincare Procedure

Are you the kind of person who can’t wait to try the next new thing? Or are you the person that sits back and waits for others to go first? In business parlance these two types are called “early adopters” and “late adopters”. If you are like most people, you probably fall somewhere in the middle.

Additionally, most of us make decisions based on our level of desire vs. our perceived level of risk. There’s not much risk in trying a new restaurant or a new laundry soap. But there is significantly more risk in a new surgical procedure or investing in a new start-up company.


New for the Sake of New

In the aesthetics industry, the same holds true. There are thousands of new devices, procedures, and treatments launched every year. It might surprise you to know that the global aesthetic device industry was valued at $13.35Billion in 2021 and is forecast to grow to $34.45Billion¹ by 2030. That’s a LOT of new aesthetic devices!

Intuitively you know that some of those devices will offer truly new and exciting technology, while others may be slightly altered versions of what we already have. The perfect example exists in the pharmaceutical industry where two separate “old” medications are combined into a single capsule, creating a “new” medication.
