This article was originally published in Start Up

Executive Summary

Aesthetic device sales were $520 million in 2006, according to US Markets for Energy-Based Aesthetics and Therapies, a report recently published by the Medtech Insight division of Windhover Information Inc., and are expected to reach approximately $1.2 billion in the year 2011. In addition to cultural factors, the minimally invasive nature of the new devices themselves, which result in lower treatment costs and shorter healing times, is helping to drive growth in the industry.
