Before and After in the Cellulite Market

This article was originally published in Start Up

Executive Summary

The medical aesthetics market is hot, and at the moment, much of that heat is coming from a tantalizing emerging market for the treatment of cellulite. Consumer demand is so great for cellulite treatments that a $3 billion cosmeceutical market has been created around lotions and massagers with minimal efficacy.

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.
