The number of people employed in the Aestheticians, Laser Therapist and Related Occupations group has increased sharply in recent years, mainly due to the demand for personal care services. Since this trend is expected to hold, employment in this occupational group should continue to experience strong growth over the next few years.
Growth of employment in this occupation depends primarily on the economic situation, demographic factors, and the importance people place in physical appearance.
Demand for aesthetics and laser services is highly sensitive to the economic situation. In fact, it is one of the first items to be cut from the household budget when consumer income drops. However, the number of aestheticians and laser therapists remained relatively stable during the recession of the early '90s.
The ageing population and the higher female labour market participation rate, women being the prime clientele for beauty-related services, greatly stimulated the growth of demand for and employment in aesthetics and laser therapists. The mass arrival of women with well-paying jobs who are in their 50s (and approaching their 60s) will help this trend hold, or even intensify.
