The global dermal filler market size is estimated to be $3.0 billion in 2023 and is anticipated to grow at a compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) of around 9% over the forecast period 2023-2035.
In the continuously evolving field of medical aesthetics, keeping up with the trend has become very important for the developers as well as the consumers. Dermal fillers are a type of injectable treatment which consists of hyaluronic acid in the form of a gel-like substance, also known as facial fillers. Dermal fillers emerged as one of the popular choices among consumers for facial rejuvenation, immediate face lift, scar treatment and lip enhancement. It is interesting to note that, according to the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, over 4.3 million hyaluronic acid dermal filler procedures were performed, globally in the year 2022. This can be primarily attributed to minimally invasive nature of the procedure making it suitable for large patient population seeking cosmetic procedures. These procedures can even be non invasive at times, involving minimal or no pain.
Dermal fillers often comprise hyaluronic acid, lactic acid, calcium hydroxyapatite, polymethyl methacrylates and polyacrylamide gels. They are normally injected underneath the skin in the nasolabial folds, marionette lines, cheeks, and oral commissures to create a smoother and fuller appearance in the face. The treatment does not require patients to undergo anesthesia. The effects of the treatment can last from 5 months to 5 years, depending on the type of material used. It is interesting to note that scientists are transforming the field of dermal fillers market by utilizing cannula technique. This approach involves using a blunt-tipped cannula despite a needle to inject fillers, to make the procedure less invasive, minimize bruising, and to permit precise placement. In addition, technological advancements have led to the development of next-generation fillers, such as hyaluronic acid fillers with improved cross-linking properties, offering longer-lasting results. Given the need and rising number for dermal filler treatments with each passing year, dermal filler injection manufacturers are also emerging. All these factors will drive the growth of the dermal fillers market, an important segment of the medical aesthetics market, over the forecast period.
