Embracing beauty tech trends: How to choose your best beauty technology partner

In the beauty industry, the race towards digital transformation is gaining momentum like never before. 

Market research reports project that the global beauty tech market might balloon to a staggering $8.93 billion by 2026. And this is a growth of over 102% compared to 2022, when it was  $4.41 billion.

This growth is powered by dynamic tech trends, including augmented reality, artificial intelligence, personalized product recommendations, and skincare diagnostics

Now, to stay competitive in this rapidly evolving arena, beauty brands must not just stay up to date with these trends but also skillfully integrate them into their business models. 

And the first and perhaps most important step in this technological revolution is finding the ideal beauty technology partner

But how to go about it? 

Follow along as we offer some useful advice on finding a beauty technology partner that will help you thrive.

1. Deciphering the language of beauty tech: Quality beauty technology partner

The beauty tech world speaks a language of its own, one that is embedded in the quality of its technology. Beauty brands embarking on a tech partnership should, therefore, look for a partner whose technological proficiency can translate into enhanced customer experiences and improved business performance.

At Visage Technologies, we’ve been the leading provider of face tracking, analysis, and recognition technology since 2002.

3. Privacy first: Safeguarding data in the digital beauty space

In the modern digital age, data privacy isn’t merely a feature; it’s a necessity. Beauty brands are increasingly leveraging advanced technology to collect and analyze customer data, making privacy protection a critical aspect of their digital strategy. 

So, your beauty tech partner should not only comply with existing data protection regulations but also take proactive measures to safeguard user data.

Additionally, we believe in maintaining complete transparency with our clients. We provide clear and comprehensive information on how we collect and use data, enabling clients to make informed decisions about their data.

All in all, we ensure your brand’s digital journey is not only innovative and successful but also secure and trustworthy.

4. Cultivating a professional relationship: Long-lasting, client-first beauty technology partner

Partnerships, much like beauty, are most rewarding when they’re built to last. A reliable beauty technology partner should put your brand’s needs at the forefront, fostering a strong, enduring relationship that mirrors your brand’s goals.

And Arbelle, powered by Visage Technologies, champions this approach, consistently prioritizing our clients’ needs and nurturing long-term relationships. It is this dedication to client-first relationships that has earned us a solid reputation in the beauty tech industry.

in order to integrate their fantastic technology with a series of web builds
we are currently operating. They have been incredibly helpful,
answering any questions we have had throughout the process.
Their team of well-informed and polite staff have been a reliable asset to the project
throughout both development and launch and I look forward to working with them
again in the future.”

5. Tailored to your brand: Full customization of solutions

Every beauty brand has a unique identity and requires solutions that reflect this individuality. A proficient tech partner should offer fully customizable solutions that are tailored to meet your brand’s specific needs. And we can offer you just that.
