As the data of iiMedia Research showed, Sixty percent of users understand that they support the consumption of medical beauty, and offline medical beauty institutions are still the main channels for consumers to obtain medical beauty information, followed by online social platforms and Internet medical beauty platforms. The penetration rate and content trend of Internet medical aesthetics platforms will effectively promote the further integration of industry resources. In the future, professional medical aesthetics platforms may become an important window for consumers to understand and identify medical aesthetics information. Internet medical cosmetology platforms such as Meituan Medical Beauty and So Young have played a role in promoting the construction of a new ecology in the medical cosmetology industry. The emergence of the Internet medical cosmetology platform, with its low commissions and reliable vertical search features, has helped the medical cosmetology industry to attract more consumers to a certain extent and expanded the customer acquisition channels.

According to iiMedia Research, it is estimated that the user scale of China's light medical beauty market will reach 15.2 million in 2020.

Under the effect of Matthew effect, it is easier for So-Young to form a virtuous circle of commercial value growth. However, with the development, a ““gray industry““ consists of virtual holiday notes and brush sheets has emerged on the platform, which greatly damaged the image of So-Young. Meanwhile, the growth in the number of institutions and users increases the difficulty of platform audition, making the maintenance of its credibility even more challenging. In addition, with the Internet giants and established listed companies entering the game, the competition tends to be intensified. So-Young would have to face the pressure from user scale, financial strength, technical strength, and industry resources, which is rather challenging.

The phenomenon of falsifying and reviewing “beautiful diaries“ and evaluations in the medical and aesthetic community caused heated discussion among netizens. Influenced by this adverse news, the stock price of SoYoung has fallen by 11.4% for two consecutive days, and its market value has evaporated by nearly $200 million.
