Embracing the Future: 5 Top 2024 Medspa Trends for a Thriving Business

Entering 2024, the medspa industry is witnessing the emergence of new trends that cater to the evolving needs of consumers. To stay competitive in this ever-growing world of non-surgical skin rejuvenation, providers need to stay on top of the latest advances in treatments and technologies.

In 2024 medspa business owners and practitioners will need to embrace these top five industry trends to attract valuable clients and keep them coming back.


#1 Selling Treatment Plans Vs. Packages

Packages have traditionally been the staple of the medical aesthetic practice. Pre-packaged services are bundled together for a fixed price. This is a great strategy for client retention while providing an opportunity to upsell additional services and products during future visits.

This business model, although highly successful, has undergone an update. The trend in 2024 is leaning towards selling treatment plans instead of packages. This subtle shift gives medspa professionals more flexibility to pivot, selling additional treatments as clients undergo results.

Why is this an advantage? By focusing on treatment plans, medspas can nurture a stronger relationship with their clients. This approach not only promotes confidence, but also allows for ongoing adjustments to the treatment plan. As clients continue to see progress, they are more likely to become loyal, long-term customers.


2. Skinsclusivity – Having the Right Devices for All Skin Tones

Multiculturalism, diversity and inclusivity will become the central themes in the medspa sector in 2024. “Skinsclusivity” refers to the emphasis on having the right energy devices to cater to all skin types and tones. This trend recognizes the unique needs of Canadians, underscoring the importance of offering inclusive solutions.

As a service provider, it will be prudent to invest in devices that can target a wide range of skin conditions and skin types. For example, SharpLight’s cutting-edge technologies – dynamic Pulse Control™ (DPC), Radio Frequency (RF)* and Infrared (IR) are designed to address skin concerns for patients across all Fitzpatrick ethnic profiles.

Why is this an advantage? Skinsclusivity is not just an ethical position but one that can expand your client base. Clients are increasingly choosing businesses that cater to their unique needs. Embrace this trend if you want to position your clinic as a leader in inclusive beauty treatments.


3. High-Level Customization – Not Using a “One-Size-Fits-All” Approach

The era of generic beauty services is over. Medspas that adopt a “one-size-fits-all” approach risk falling behind as consumers are becoming more educated and informed. Furthermore, clients are requiring more sophistication from their providers, favouring clinics that offer a multitude of skincare solutions.

In 2024, success will mean investing in advanced technologies that provide a higher degree of customization. Devices such as SharpLights Omnimax S4 and Omnimax S3 allow clinicians the flexibility to treat a wide range of skin concerns, setting themselves apart in the competitive medspa market.

Why is this an advantage? By prioritizing customization, your clinic can become the leading destination for bespoke treatments. Clients will seek you out for results that are specifically tailored to their individual needs, leading to increased satisfaction and loyalty.


4. Treating Skin Aging Using Multiple Modalities

Skin aging is a complex process, demanding a multifaceted approach. In 2024, the emphasis will continue to be recognizing clients’ diverse aging patterns, and employing varied strategies for attaining optimal results. This approach not only enhances treatment effectiveness, but also provides clients with a more well-rounded and satisfying experience.

For example, by combining injectables with skin tightening energy therapies, your medspa can offer more services under one roof. You’ll be able to attract a broader range of individuals, such as in different age groups and stages of the aging process.

Why is this an advantage? Embracing this trend will help you target the growing number of consumers seeking non-surgical rejuvenation.


5. Focus on Results That Can Be Measured

Clients want tangible results, especially when shelling out thousands of dollars. Medspas that can deliver the “wow” factor are more likely to attract and retain clients. In 2024, the focus will continue to be delivering results that are not only visible but also quantifiable.

One way to document before-and-after results is with services such as 3D skin analysis. This is a perfect complementary technology to DPC™, Laser and Radio frequency, helping clients better understand their skin condition and track progress over time.

Why is this an advantage? This data-driven approach will help you build trust with your clients. Using visual tools to showcase your clients’ transformation will reinforce your clinic’s credibility and set you apart from your competitors.


This year success in the medspa industry will require staying current with the five trends listed above. You’ll thrive by meeting demand for personalized, inclusive, and results-driven experiences – and partnering with SharpLight is one of the best ways to thrive!
