Global Aesthetics Combination Therapy Market: Drivers
Availability of low-end products in low-income countries is expected to propel growth of the global aesthetics combination therapy market over the forecast period. The penetration of dermatology service providers in low-income countries such as India, Thailand, Malaysia, and Vietnam is high. Dermatologists recommend chemical peels and various creams and lotions as the best treatment options for facial rejuvenation. Moreover, in developed regions, the use of botulinum type-A neurotoxins is high.
Global Aesthetics Combination Therapy Market: Opportunities
Majority of patients worldwide prefer botulinum neurotoxin type-A for reducing wrinkles in the upper-third portion of the face (triangle region). However, currently there are few major suppliers of botulinum products, which leads to preferential pricing of the product. Therefore, increasing manufacturing output of botulinum products and emergence of new players focused on botulinum productions is expected to aid in growth of the market.
Global Aesthetics Combination Therapy Market: Restraints
Improper training to professionals could result in serious complications, thereby hampering growth of the market. Treatments are sometimes not administered properly, which results in severe or adverse side effects. Fillers are injected around the temple region to reduce crow’s feet and even out fine lines. Patients may experience symptoms such as flu, fever, extreme pain, and swelling within 48 hours, if the injection punctures a facial vein while being administered. Such accidents would prompt administering of steroids and antibiotics to patients.
Moreover, high procedure fees limits repeat visits of customers, especially in emerging economies. Dermatologists may charge around US$ 2,100 for a single ablative laser procedure. Other aesthetic combination procedures or treatments could carry a price tag, which is over 50% more compared to normal facial or beauty treatments. Moreover, several emerging economies do not offer reimbursements for minimally invasive treatments and procedures, which further hinders growth of the market.
The BTx-A/Dermal Filler segment in the global aesthetics combination therapy market was valued at US$ 727.2 Mn in 2019 and is expected to reach US$ 1,713.1 Mn by 2027 at a CAGR of 11.3% during the forecast period. The growth of the segment is attributed to increasing demand for facial aesthetic procedures for skin tightening in developed and developing economies during the forecast period.
The scar removal segment held dominant position in the global aesthetics combination therapy market in 2019, accounting for 28.6% share in terms of value, followed by skin resurfacing, respectively.

Moreover, office-based non-invasive and minimally invasive procedures are gaining popularity among lower age groups aged between 25 and 30 years and 31-35 years.
