Noninvasive Beauty Procedures Becoming a Larger Industry Force

Posted: June 14, 2013

Kline & Company's industry manager for consumer products Karen Doskow, in a blog post titled "The Future is Non-invasively Restoring the Past" on Kline Blogs, notes that, "As producers of advanced cosmetic lasers and intense pulsed light aesthetic equipment used by dermatologists and plastic surgeons step into the limelight with their newfound alliances with beauty marketers to reach the general market beauty consumer, a better understanding of the professional aesthetics market and its potential is imperative."

Doskow explains that, using Kline's Professional Skin Care and At-home Beauty Devices reports, the market research company is developing a report called Professional Aesthetics: Global Market Analysis and Opportunities. "The analysis will imminently address nonsurgical approaches employed by physicians, aestheticians, and other professionals to engage skin care concerns including acne elimination, facial firming/body toning, fine lines and wrinkles, hair removal, and hyperpigmentation," she writes. "These approaches include the use of aesthetic lasers and light therapy, dermal fillers, microdermabrasion, and injectibles in China, Europe, and the United States."

Doskow also notes, "The timeliness of this report is underscored by much talk at the American Academy of Dermatology’s recent South Beach Symposium in Miami Beach, which centered on the potential distribution gains for SkinMedica under its new parent, Allergan, the maker of injectibles Juvederm and Botox, and how to better to team up skin care brands with laser companies for pre- and post-procedure care. Similarly, adding a potential wrinkle to Allergan’s dominating Botox is an expected much-mooted alternative being developed by corporate giant Johnson & Johnson."
