With Millennials now accounting for the largest adult demographic in the U.S., it’s time to ensure that you understand the needs of this consumer sector to secure your aesthetic clinic’s continued success. The first thing to consider is that these 18- to 35-year-olds live and thrive in the era of social media, prevalent with celebrities and beauty influencers showcasing their best looks. The aesthetic concerns that these young patients have may be very different from your older core audiences. Let us help you dig further and understand this audience who will influence the direction of medical aesthetics for the next five, 10, or 20 years.

Millennials have brought a twist to the standard of beauty and have created an uprising of new trends and self-love. Apart from their influence on social media, millennials have devoted themselves to recreate their beauty in ways that they feel is right. According to a 2018 study done by the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, people under the age of 38 are having more cosmetic surgeries than those within the ages of 54-64. This is a market that can’t be ignored! 

What Are Millennials Concerned About? 


According to the Global Acne Market Report, acne cases increased globally to 681.12 million cases in 2016. Being in their 20s and 30s, active adult acne can strike any time. AAD reports that 15% of adult females experience acne at some stage of their life. Active acne and scars related to acne pose an obstacle in their pursuit of perfect skin. Topical brands such as Proactiv has seen exponential growth in terms of sales in recent years, acting as evidence for this increasingly common concern.
