Scienjoy Holding Corporation (NASDAQ: SJ), a leading live entertainment mobile streaming platform in China, today announced that it has entered into a strategic partnership with Jiada Hexin (Beijing) Science and Technology Ltd. (“Jiada Hexin”), an online-to-offline (O2O) aesthetic medicine platform. The two companies will launch a live streaming aesthetic medicine platform that uses Scienjoy’s proprietary technologies to bring together customers, live streaming broadcasters and aesthetic medicine institutions.
In China trusted live streaming influencers are helping consumers navigate the new and complex world of aesthetic medicine. At the same time, institutions are increasingly moving online to places like Jiada Hexin’s O2O platform to connect efficiently with consumers, while consumers seek out these platforms to keep up to date with new aesthetic treatments. Online and live stream influencers have become a key part of aesthetic medicine marketing, offering personal experience sharing that has demystified the process, increased transparency and ultimately helped consumers make more informed decisions. According to the 2021 “China Aesthetic Medicine Market Outlook Report” jointly released by Deloitte and Meituan, China’s aesthetic medicine market already reached RMB197.5 billion in 2020 and by 2023 is expected to exceed RMB300 billion. Backed by growing consumer acceptance and low market penetration, the sector presents outsized opportunities for growth.
Scienjoy and Jiada Hexin’s joint aesthetic medicine platform will combine Jiada Hexin’s existing network of over 200 certified institutions with Scienjoy’s pool of over 300,000 seasoned live streaming broadcasters. The majority of Scienjoy’s broadcasters fit the core aesthetic medicine demographic: women in their 20s and 30s with disposable income who are interested in maintaining a healthy and young appearance. This new platform will allow existing live streaming broadcasters to engage with viewers and attract new beauty broadcasters. In 2019, Scienjoy began incubating medical aesthetics-related initiatives to test popularity with broadcasters and existing users. The current iteration, the LikeMei Mini Program launched in November last year, has been integrated and tested on Scienjoy’s platforms and shown strong positive user feedback.
On the technical and feature side, the new aesthetic medicine platform will use Scienjoy’s proprietary artificial intelligence (AI) image analysis technology to help interested customers explore treatment options. AI has become a core component of Scienjoy’s business, with proprietary AI technology a key pillar of its live streaming platforms and an area of continued research and development. When users upload photos or videos to the platform, Scienjoy’s AI image analysis will accurately identify areas for attention, suggest different treatment options to the user and provide before and after image comparisons. The AI-generated “after” image will let early-stage potential customers explore and learn about their options before they are ready to contact a treatment provider. Combined with live streaming broadcaster personal experience sharing, and the ability of users to talk with aesthetic medicine professionals directly on the platform, AI technology helps to provide a well-rounded experience for users to explore and learn. These AI and broadcaster tools will help users to learn about the options and outcomes even before they connect with one of the over 200 aesthetic medicine institutions in Jiada Hexin’s network.
“We believe that with a combination of Scienjoy’s proprietary technologies, talented broadcasters and Jiada Hexin’s O2O aesthetic medicine experience, our strategic cooperation will create value for both sides,” commented Victor He, chairman and CEO of Scienjoy. “This partnership demonstrates how Scienjoy continues to look for new applications for our proprietary technology to generate growth and expand our industry reach.”
