The number of people aged 65 and above in the world will increase from 702 billion to 1.5 billion between now and the year 2050 and for the beauty sector that means that one thing for the aesthetics industry: anti-aging products will be bigger than ever. The plethora of non-surgical beauty treatments means that many beauty buffs are opting to stay away from the knife, investing instead in laser and other anti-aging treatments that turn back the hands of time, often with very little downtime involved.
The following are just a few highly solicited anti-aging treatments that are predicted to continue attracting clients over the next five to seven years.
Collagen and Elastin Induction via Microneedling.
Microneedling services, centered on generating new collagen and elastin through the creation of tiny holes in the skin, is a top choice for those seeking a minimally invasive yet effective treatment for fine lines and wrinkles, acne, scars,and stretch marks. The report Microneedling Market – Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends, and Forecast 2018-2026 indicates that the market is expected to enjoy steady growth over the next five years on a global level. Its growth, says the report, “is driven by… the rise in adoption of skin care aesthetics among youngsters and adults, and increase in incidence of skin infections, acne vulgaris chronic hyperpigmentation, and other skin problems.” For businesses, including microneedling in their treatment list increases the age bracket of clients, since this treatment has both anti-aging and anti-acne effects.
Collagen Stimulation via Microfocused Ultrasound.
High-intensity microfocused ultrasound, commonly referred to as Ulthera, also aims to stimulate collagen production. Allied Market Research reports that the market for this therapy, valued at $81,000 in 2017, is expected to reach approximately $399,000 by 2025, with a CAGR of 21.8% from 2918 to 2025. The market is driven by an interest in targeting skin ageing early, say the researchers, coupled with the increase in the elderly population. The treatment works by heating the skin’s deep thermal layer, creating microtrauma that the skin then responds to by producing collagen. Its potential when it comes to income generation for spas is sizable, considering the fact that it can be used to target a plethora of issues – including lack of firmness in the face, neck, and neckline. It also targets eyelid bags, reduces the appearance of a ‘double chins’, and has a brow-lifting effect.
Pulsed Dye Laser for Broken Blood Vessels.
The recent study, Pulsed Dye Laser Market has revealed that the global pulse dye laser market will also continue to enjoy excellent growth from 2020 to 2027, with a predicted potential rate of 10.80%. The treatment is one of the most popular motivations for medical tourism, with some of its biggest markets located in North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, South America, and the Middle East and Africa. The treatment removes broken blood vessels, spider veins, and capillaries on the sides of the nose, cheeks, and legs via the use of pulsed dye laser. The treatment involves the use of yellow light to gently warm up skin and destroy targeted blood vessels. The very latest types of laser emit a beam of 595nm in length. This beam absorbs the red pigment in blood vessels, thus destroying and closing off only the chosen lesions, without having any effect on the surrounding tissue. Because downtime is limited to caring for light swelling, and makeup can be applied 24 hours after the treatment, it is considered a ‘lunchtime’ treatment that is highly effective and permanent. Since spider and other veins can wrest from the smoothness of skin, this safe treatment appeals to ever-savvier clients who are accustomed to the use of laser treatments to deal with a plethora of problems ranging from scarring to pigmentation.
There are many options for people wishing to have beautiful skin without having to go under the knife and the industry can take advantage of their efficiency, targeting these treatments at those who are not interested in surgical interventions. Microneedling and collagen stimulation, for instance, encourage skin to produce more collagen and elastin – the pillars of young-looking skin. Pulsed dye laser, meanwhile, enables clients to target spider veins and broken capillaries and blood vessels, for a smooth, even look to skin. Thus far, industry reports indicate that all three treatments are projected to enjoy significant growth, so that investment in technology and staff training alike should be considered by clinics wishing to offer treatments which are in line with current client demands.
