Published: January 2024


Medical aesthetics market has a promising future; the success will be primarily determined by the efforts of key industry stakeholders to capitalize on the growth trends and meet consumer expectations. We analyzed over 205 companies that are engaged in offering products and devices for various medical aesthetic procedures. In this article, discover 9 top medical aesthetics device companies and their capabilities in this industry.


Medical aesthetics have revolutionized the field of skincare and dermatology by offering a number of advanced products, devices, and treatment options. Medical aesthetics are employed for the improvement of the outer appearance of an individual by treating skin abnormalities, such as scars, laxity, wrinkles, moles, pigmentation, and liver spots (age spots). These medical procedures can overcome the skin abnormalities by boosting collagen, reducing fine lines and wrinkles, lifting flabby skin, skin rejuvenation and can even treat signs of aging. In fact, medical aesthetic treatments can also help in reducing excess fat and cellulite, unwanted hair, and spider veins. These treatments typically offer results that stay for longer durations of time. As mentioned earlier, some of the treatments, such as chemical peels and liposuction can even last a lifetime, allowing people to enjoy toned and soft skin for a longer duration. Furthermore, procedures, such as body contouring, laser hair removal, breast implants and gluteal implants have shown effects that last for over a decade.

In recent years, several factors have contributed towards transforming the medical aesthetics market. The increasing geriatric and obese population, lower treatment costs and fewer risks have contributed to the popularity of these procedures. It is worth mentioning that the rising adoption of these solutions has resulted in significant uplift in the investment activity in this sector. In fact, injectables, such as Botox is expected to make significant contributions to the total revenue generation potential in this market. Moreover, the growing desire for a youthful, heathy and attractive appearance has driven the demand for procedures, such as botox, dermal fillers, liposuction and hair transplantation. Additionally, the non-invasive nature of these procedures, along with the benefits associated with them, such as fewer complications, less expenditure and quick recovery has garnered significant interest from industry stakeholders. Furthermore, the growing awareness, celebrity endorsements, and effective marketing strategies help to deal with the restrictions associated with aesthetic processes. It is interesting to note that COVID-19 pandemic has also contributed to the increased demand for these treatments. According to the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, the pandemic has led to a 10% increase in the number of cosmetic surgeries.
