Allergan also has strong presence in the dermal filler space through its acquisition of Inamed in 2005 and gained access to Cosmoderm and Zyderm product lines.

Valeant through acquisition of Medicis is a leader in dermal fillers with its hyaluronic acid (HA) filler product line led by Restylane. HA dermal filler injections have become quite popular due to their convenience and favorable safety profile.

In recent years, J&J has introduced Evolence, the HA-based dermal filler similar to Valeant’s Restylane and Allergan’s Juvederm.

In the Korean market, the growing beauty treatment market is benefiting Medytox, with its well-balanced product portfolio, and LG Life Sciences that offer an edge in Hyaluronic Acid (HA) dermal fillers.

Since aesthetic dermatology procedures are mostly elective, the market is not reimbursement dependent. While this is a disadvantage in a down economy, companies introducing new products in the segment are able to escape the hassle of securing reimbursement for new products, which are often costly and time-consuming process. Plastic surgeon are more than willing to adopt new products quickly after launch, which is not always the case in other areas of healthcare.

Companies such as Valeant that have introduced new products focused on the aesthetic marketplace during the past several years have significantly benefited from the favorable dynamics of this unique market. Allergan’s $2.1bn acquisition of Kythera in April 2015 brought in to its fold the game-changing Kybella treatment for double-chin while strengthening its facial aesthetics portfolio.

Body contouring and fat-based procedures continue to be a focus of the industry. Additionally, home therapies and consumer-based initiatives are still a major focus in the aesthetic dermatology space.
