The injectables market’s key players include Allergan Aesthetics, Galderma, Merz Pharma, Sinclair Pharma, and Teoxane. Aesthetic injectables such as botulinum toxin type A and hyaluronic acid fillers are among the most sought-after treatments, addressing concerns such as facial wrinkles, volume loss, and facial contouring. 


Aesthetic Medicine and Aesthetics Industries – Friends or Foes?  

The ongoing convergence of aesthetic medicine and professional aesthetics has sparked different opinions on this topic. Several Spanish industry experts underscore the significant opportunity that aesthetic medicine presents for beauty centers looking to evolve, retain their customers, and generate more profit. According to them, clients in Spain increasingly seek instantaneous results with long-lasting effects, driving demand for a fusion between aesthetic medicine and professional aesthetics. This means the following: 

  • Beauty centers that invest in aesthetic medicine services are experiencing substantial growth, particularly during the typically slower winter months. 
  • Failure to embrace aesthetic medicine can lead to stagnation, as clients may seek out providers offering a comprehensive range of services. 

Additionally, aesthetic medicine experts in Spain indicate that there has been a shift in the demographic profile of aesthetic medicine clients: 

  • Treatments are now sought by a wider range of age groups, including individuals in their 20s. However, the majority of procedures are still performed on patients over 40 years old. 
  • Clients are more informed and discerning, seeking personalized treatments with natural results, quality, effectiveness, safety, transparency, and professionalism 

As aesthetic medicine continues to integrate into the beauty industry, treatments will become more personalized and accessible, requiring beauty centers to adapt and expand their portfolio of products and services to remain competitive. Due to this driving force, the number of aesthetic medicine clinics in Spain increased by around 20% yearly
