Increasing demand for cosmeceuticals
Physician dispensed cosmeceuticals include medicated esthetic products that are referred by dermatologists, trichologists, cosmetic surgeons, and allied medical professionals. These products are dispensed at skin and hair clinics, beauty and wellness centers, and are available as OTC products through selected retail outlets. Increasing levels of stress, pollution, and climate change can cause damage to the skin, hair, and eyes. This has created a demand for cosmetic products to treat a wide range of dermatological conditions. Cosmeceutical companies, therefore, are developing newer and advanced cosmeceuticals to target these medical conditions. Consistent demand for advancements in skin care and beauty products is leading to exciting new entries of various products in the physician dispensed cosmeceuticals market.
