The global microdermabrasion devices market size was valued at USD 568.70 million in 2022. It is estimated to reach USD 1,166.18 million by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 8.3% during the forecast period (2023–2031).
Microdermabrasion is performed to improve the skin's general texture and tone. Microdermabrasion devices are mechanical exfoliation equipment used to enhance the skin's texture and diminish the appearance of superficial flaws. An in-office procedure called microdermabrasion takes roughly an hour to perform. Only a trained skincare expert with the appropriate license should do microdermabrasion. Professionals who practice microdermabrasion use a specific type of applicator with an abrasive surface to delicately remove the thick outer layer of skin to renew it.
The devices with specialized applicators with an abrasive surface to gently touch the skin and remove impurities are frequently offered in crystal-tipped and diamond-tipped variations. To remove trash and pollutants using suction, they also use fine, non-toxic sodium bicarbonate or aluminum oxide particles in the vacuum. These devices support the stimulation of collagen formation, which helps to lessen signs of aging and revitalize the skin. They are frequently used to treat melasma, hyperpigmentation, age spots, acne scars, fine lines, wrinkles, and sun damage.
Signs of aging, like wrinkles, lack of skin elasticity, and dark spots, start appearing between 25 and 30 and become more prominent from 30 to 65. Therefore, many people experiencing various signs of aging are boosting the demand for microdermabrasion globally. For instance, according to CIA World Fact Book, around 41.7% of the German population was aged between 25 and 54, and around 13.6% was aged between 55 and 65 in 2014. Moreover, the population susceptible to signs of aging is expected to grow during the forecast period. Population aged between 20 and 64 accounted for 54% of the global population in 2000 and is expected to reach 57% in 2050. Therefore, a perpetual increase in the population aged between 25 and 65 is expected to drive the growth of the microdermabrasion market.
The surging prevalence of skin conditions significantly increases demand for microdermabrasion devices, thus driving market growth. Skin conditions most commonly affect immunosuppressed individuals easily infected by fungi, bacteria, and other disease-causing organisms. The American Academy of Dermatology Association stated that acne is the most common skin condition in the U.S. It affects more than 50 million Americans annually. According to the National Rosacea Society, on average, 16 million Americans suffer from rosacea each year, and most individuals are unaware of this condition. The geriatric population, which is more susceptible to rosacea, is increasing in the U.S., leading to market growth. As per National Eczema Association, over 31.6 million individuals in the U.S. suffer from at least one of the eight types of eczema.
Microdermabrasion is one of the fastest and gentlest procedures involving mechanical exfoliation of the outermost layer of dead skin cells. However, during the removal of the stratum corneum, the skin may be affected with minor bruises and scars, which are healed by the new healthy skin. In addition, a microdermabrasion machine uses either diamonds or crystals to irritate the skin. Aluminum oxide crystals are the most commonly used, which may cause complications if the particles enter the lungs or scratch the eye. Sodium chloride, magnesium oxide, and sodium bicarbonate are some of the crystals used in microdermabrasion. If the procedure is unskillful, it may also result in abrasions and pinpoint bleeding. Such factors are expected to restrain global market growth.
Dermatology devices such as microdermabrasion are being increasingly developed due to growing esthetic consciousness. Most of the demand for esthetic devices is from women owing to greater concern among them regarding their physical appearance, making women the target population. Many minimally invasive cosmetic procedures, such as laser hair removal, microdermabrasion, and laser skin resurfacing, are expected to boost the market. Moreover, noninvasive procedures are also highly adopted by people to enhance their aesthetic appeal.
