The US Medical Spa Market - The Medicalisation of Beauty
(NON-INVASIVE NON-SURGICAL BEAUTY AESTHETIC COSMECEUTICAL
ANTI-AGEING HAIR REMOVAL - MEDSPA - SPA DAY SPA INSTITUTE SALON - LASERS)
The democratisation of medical aesthetics
fuels strong growth for medspas, aesthetic laser treatments and physician skincare brands. According to US medical spa managers, "ordinary" people are increasingly buying aesthetic treatments and services. Med spas are seeing a wider range of new clients, such as men, ethnic and younger consumers though the older, affluent woman remains the most important medical-cosmetic customer.
Cosmetic or non-invasive procedures generate most revenues because clients want effective results,
fast treatments and no down or recovery time. Skincare, which removes or reduces the signs of ageing
such as age spots and wrinkles, is driving this market while hair removal for both men and women can account for more than 50% of business in US medspas.
Laser and light based device procedures
can generate up to 80% of sales. Technically innovative lasers, which
treat an ever wider range of conditions, will drive higher rates of growth as
pigmentation, acne, tattoos, redness, sun damage, veins, psoriasis, lesion removal and
skin rejuvenation procedures become available in medspas.
The launch of effective and non-surgical treatments for obesity or excess body fat
will be the holy grail of the global laser and medspa market. But market experts warn that body contouring and anti-cellulite devices must deliver results in order to succeed.
In little more than a decade the US medspa market has come from zero to a one
market. However this new market is restricted to companies and products
which meet specific criteria. The blurring of boundaries between cosmetic and medicine
has generated uncertainites but suppliers and medspas which want to carve out a niche must differentiate themselves from the cosmetic market. Key distinctions include clinical data, evidence backed results, FDA approval and doctor, physician or pharma skincare brands
