Skin Boosters Market Size & Trends

The global skin boosters market size was valued at USD 1.08 billion in 2023 and is projected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 9.0% from 2024 to 2030.Skin boosters are micro-injections of hyaluronic acid, vitamins, and minerals injected into the epidermis to revitalize, hydrate, and rejuvenate the skin for a natural glow. The market is expected to grow due to factors such as changing beauty standards in developing and developed countries, growing financial accessibility to nonsurgical cosmetic procedures, increasing regulatory approval for new-age skin boosters, and growing cosmetic demand from the aging population. 

U.S. Skin Boosters Market  size and growth rate, 2024 - 2030

The COVID-19 pandemic, which is now an endemic in major regions and countries had a negative impact on the skin booster market. According to the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery report, a marginal downfall in nonsurgical aesthetic procedures was reported in 2020. Consequently, in December 2020, Merz Pharma, which manufactures Belotero, reported a moderate 10.3% decline in its yearly revenues due to COVID-19.  

The introduction of various insurance schemes for cosmetic procedures has contributed to an increase in awareness, acceptance, and growth in the skin booster market. For instance, Hamilton Fraser, a UK-based insurance company, is specifically dedicated to providing insurance for a range of aesthetic procedures, including laser treatments, dermal fillers, chemical peels, and facial treatments. In April 2022, AbbVie and PatientFi extended their partnership, wherein the latter agreed to provide financing options to AbbVie’s aesthetic product line. Such agreements are expected to propel demand for skin boosters during the forecast period.

The growing adoption of minimally invasive cosmetic procedures is expected to drive market growth through the forecast period. The growing popularity of nonsurgical skincare treatment options is one of the primary factors responsible for an increase in the number of patients seeking skin boosters and plastic surgery services. Thus, increased demand for nonsurgical cosmetic procedures can be attributed to the fact that more people are becoming aware of the risks and complications associated with invasive surgical procedures, including delayed healing, risk of incision scars, and adverse reactions to anesthesia.

Furthermore, the growing popularity of skin booster treatment is attributed to the increase in the global geriatric population. As per Worldometer data, the geriatric population is growing in Asian countries, and as of 2023, Asia’s population exceeded 4.75 billion. The region’s geriatric population was 414 million in 2020, which was 20% higher than the U.S. population of 331.4 million. Additionally, the geriatric population in Asia is estimated to reach 923 million by 2050. Some key aging signs include wrinkles and skin sagging due to low facial elasticity, dark spots, etc. Thus, the presence of a large population liable to various signs of aging drives demand for facial treatments such as skin boosters.

Market Concentration & Characteristics

Market growth stage is high, and pace of the market growth is accelerating. The skin booster market is characterized by a moderate-to-high degree of innovation owing to technological advancements. The providers emphasize greater patient comfort during the procedure; market players are investing in innovative technologies and products to keep up with the demand.

The skin booster market is characterized by a moderate level of merger and acquisition (M&A) activity by the leading players. For instance, in January 2022, Galderma completed the acquisition of ALASTIN Skincare, a specialty products company aiming to develop innovative and clinically tested physician-dispensed skincare products.

The skin booster market is also subject to increasing regulatory scrutiny. An increasing number of regulatory changes are introduced for facial injectables such as skin boosters. For instance, after the initiation of Medical Device Regulation (MDR) within Europe, facial injectables were classified under class III medical device (the highest possible risk class), which implies that it has to comply with more requirements.

Skin Boosters Market  Concentration & Characteristics

There are a limited number of direct product substitutes for skin boosters. However, several treatments can be used to achieve similar outcomes to skin boosters, such as chemical peels, microdermabrasion, laser treatments, and other over-the-counter vitamin C products. However, the available treatments are not permanent solutions for fine lines, wrinkles, and other signs of aging.

End-user concentration is a key factor in the skin boosters market. There are a number of end-user providers such as hospitals, dermatology clinics, and Medspas that are driving demand for such injectable procedures. Owing to the presence of various products by different manufacturers with similar patient benefits and results, practitioners demand additional discounts and rebates from distributors to use their products for aesthetic procedures.

Type Insights

This method involves micro-injections of vitamins, minerals, and hyaluronic acid, delivering targeted hydration to the deeper layers of the skin. It proves productive in addressing fine lines, wrinkles, and dullness.

Furthermore, the growing prevalence of facial wrinkles due to chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder (COPD) is expected to drive growth. According to an article by the NCBI in February 2023, patients suffering from COPD are expected to witness significant wrinkle formation. In addition, the growing number of COPD patients in younger age groups is expected to boost target population for this market.

Mesotherapy is also expected to register the fastest CAGR during the forecast period.

According to the American Med Spa Association, 8,841 medical spas were operational in 2022.
