Photorejuvenation Equipment Market

Photorejuvenation Equipment Market: Increased Demand for Minimally Invasive Aesthetic Correction Procedures Fuelling Adoption: Global Industry Analysis 2013-2017 and Opportunity Assessment 2018-2028

Increasing Burden of Skin Disorders

Rising prevalence of skin problems has been leading to scarring. Acne is considered the most common skin problem in the U.S. which is affecting over 50 million people yearly. Acne causes major physical changes, including permanent scarring. Moreover, about 85% of people aged between 12 and 24 experience acne. The commonly used non-invasive treatment for acne scarring is laser resurfacing. Thus, the rising prevalence of skin disorders is directly driving the global photorejuvenation equipment market over the forecast period. 

Shift from Invasive to Non-invasive Photorejuvenation Treatment

Continuously growing awareness among people about non-invasive surgeries with lesser side effects compared to surgeries is increasing the adoption of non-invasive photorejuvenation equipment. Furthermore, Non-invasive photorejuvenation treatment with lasers, IPL and LED equipment reduces the hospital stay and provides faster recovery.

These are some of the factors contributing to increasing the demand for non-invasive surgeries with photorejuvenation equipment. For instance, in 2015, around 568,672 number of photorejuvenation procedures were performed across the globe with photorejuvenation equipment which increased to 623,243 in 2016.

Increasing Use of Combination Therapy Lasers for Tattoo and Hair Removal

Combined laser therapy is found to be very effective for tattoo removal. The usage of a single laser has certain limitations like ink retention even after multiple sessions, incomplete clearance of the tattoo, and long treatment duration with large interval gap between sessions, and in certain cases, blistering and dyschromia.

These limitations can be overcome through the use of combined treatment modes such as combined laser therapies and increases the demand of photorejuvenation equipment. For instance, combination of fractional laser with Q-switched laser has been proved to reduce side effects such as blistering, minimize number of sessions required for treatment and yield faster clearing of tissue.  

Regulatory Approvals Leading to Launches of New Products in the Market

Product launches in the photorejuvenation equipment market are specifically governed by certain regulations, whose approval is necessary for the launch of products in the market. Over the last few years, leading players in the laser equipment segment of the photorejuvenation equipment market have received regulatory approval across major geographic markets which has enabled them to launch various products in the market.

The launch of new products in the market, brings in new technology which eases treatment procedures and provides improved results to patients. For instance, in 2018, DEKA M.E.L.A. srl received KFDA (Korean Food and Drug Administration) approval to launch the new Alexandrite system MOTUS AX in South Korea.

Adverse Side Effects Related to Photorejuvenation Treatment

A range of side effects is associated with the treatment with photorejuvenation equipment, as these treatments work differently on different skin types. For dark skin tone, absorption of excess laser light can result in skin discoloration and blistering. These side effects are expected to dissuade people from opting for these treatments, which would negatively impact the overall photorejuvenation equipment market growth.
