Global Skin Tightening Devices Market - 2022-2029
The global skin tightening devices market size was valued US$ 1,601.80 million in 2021 and is estimated to reach US$ YY million by 2029, growing at a CAGR of 8.50% during the forecast period (2022-2029).
Skin tightening is an aesthetic treatment in which several techniques such as laser, invasive, non-invasive, radiofrequency, and others are used. Laser skin tightening is minimally invasive, a non-surgical process that uses an infrared light source to tighten the skin through heating collagen under the skin surface which makes the skin tight.
The global skin tightening devices market is due to growing adoption of non-invasive aesthetic procedures, technological advancement in skin tightening devices.
Rising adoption of non-invasive aesthetic procedures drives the growth of the market
The growing demand for non-invasive skin treatment procedures is also driving the growth of the market. The rising awareness amongst people about non-invasive surgeries with lesser side effects has increased the adoption of non-invasive aesthetic lasers and energy devices. Non-invasive skin rejuvenation treatment with lasers based, Intense Pulsed Light-based, and LED equipment is designed to provide quick and faster recovery, hence, reduced hospital stays. For instance, In August 2018, Venus Concept Ltd. launched a new Advanced Connectivity Module (ACM) Revenue Share Program, which was powered by Venus Connect smart technology. This program was launched in the U.S. and Canada, which provided guidance to customers related to aesthetics.
Moreover, the rapidly aging population in this region coupled with the presence of advanced technologies and skilled cosmetic surgeons drive the market. For instance, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, in 2020, 2.3 million cosmetic surgical procedures, 13.2 million cosmetic minimally invasive procedures, and 6.8 million reconstructive procedures were performed in the United States, with a 3% increase in the number of procedures over 2019. Thus, the growing popularity of aesthetic treatment for facial enhancement is the key market driver.
Side effects of skin tightening devices is expected to hamper the market growth
The two most common serious side effects are acne and skin discoloration. Absorption of excess laser light can result in skin discoloration and blistering for a darker skin tone than lighter ones. Such post-treatment side effects create a block in opting for these treatments.
Some common side effects that may occur after laser hair removal treatments, includes itching, pink skin, redness, and swelling around the treatment area or swelling of the follicles (follicular edema). These side effects rarely last more than two or three days. Others unwanted side effects such as hypo- or hyper-pigmentation or, in extreme cases, burning of the skin call for an adjustment in laser selection or settings.
Risks include the chance of burning the skin or discoloration of the skin, hypopigmentation (white spots), flare of acne, swelling around the hair follicle, scab formation, purpura, and infection. These risks can be reduced by treatment with an appropriate laser type used at appropriate settings for the individual's skin type and treatment area. Hence, such treatment side effects can dissuade people from opting for these treatments, and negatively impact the growth of aesthetic lasers and energy devices market.
