Laser market in the US
Technavio’s new research study states that the laser market is the leading segment in the aesthetic laser and energy devices market in the US. Since the approval of aesthetic laser machines by FDA in the early 1990's the market has undergone rapid expansion, which today is responsible in advanced medical treatment options. The US is the country with maximum number of non-surgical procedures, including laser hair removal, fat reduction, laser liposuction and many others. The study reports that according to American Society for Dermatologic Surgery (ISAPS), about 167,676 laser hair removal procedures were performed in the US in 2013.
As the market is expected to grow significantly over the forecast period, physicians are likely to adopt advanced cosmetic procedures in non-surgical techniques, such as laser tattoo, laser hair removal, skin tightening, laser wrinkle reduction, and photo facial. “US hosts a large number of skilled surgeons trained on the state-of-the-art equipment, which enable them to use and treat a diverse class of aesthetic conditions with just one piece of equipment,” adds Imran Mushtaq, Technavio’s lead research analyst.

Today the use of ultrasound in hair removal and skin tightening is the latest breakthrough as other applications such as body contouring and skin rejuvenation. Ultrasound has advantages over lasers and IPL hair removal and causes minimal risk, side effects and pain.
The Ulthera System is the only non-invasive FDA approved (for a lift indication) ultrasound device used to treat the full face and neck skin tightening. Also, high intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) has also made its debut in the plastic surgery and is expected to show positive results in treating aesthetic conditions.
Radiofrequency market in the US
The new research study draws attention towards radiofrequency (RF), the newest addition to the aesthetic devices market. The FDA has approved a number of RF devices for wrinkle and fat removal since its introduction in 2000. RF medical devices are used in dermatology for body contouring and skin tightening.
ThermaCool developed by Thermage is the first widely used device. Solta Medical has expanded the original technology and currently produces ThermaCool NXT (uses monopolar RF energy) and owns Thermage.
