Dermatologists See Expanding Role For Energy-Based Treatments

The market for aesthetic laser technology has been growing in the past few years, as the public searches for the perfect combination of low-priced, minimally invasive treatments that promise to restore a more youthful appearance. Dermatologists are the key medical practitioners in this field, and although many physicians have been happy to add new, revenue-producing therapies, the lack of extensive clinical data - particularly in the area of laser-liposuction - is a source of concern for a number of doctors.

Top Device Stories of 2009: A Year of Economic Revival and Regulatory Risk

2009 was the most difficult year the device industry faced in a long time, particularly given the boom years that preceded it. Public and private investors grew nervous and sat on the sidelines, as did most corporate acquirers. As a result, most start-ups found it difficult to raise money and VCs were frustrated by the poor returns being generated, especially compared with the previously frothy climate. The silver lining may be that there are signs that the economic environment may be improving and that corporate acquirers will continue to pay a premium for the right deal. Overhanging all of this, however, is the specter of health care reform and its impact on the device industry, whether through a device tax, comparative effectiveness or some unanticipated other result, meaning the industry is far from out of the woods.

Thermage/Reliant: Evidence of Tightening in the Aesthetics Market

The aesthetics industry is becoming increasingly competitive and there are very few intellectual property barriers to entry; as soon as one company develops a new wrinkle-reducing device, it's not long before others come up with something that sounds similar. Sales and marketing account for the biggest costs of medical aesthetic companies, and because a number of the newer one-product companies now find themselves bumping into their competitors in physicians' offices and at trade shows, consolidation in the industry appears to be in order. In this challenging environment, the recent merger of skin tightening company Thermage with skin resurfacing firm Reliant is designed to create a stronger competitor.
