If there’s one industry that will likely never die, it’s the cosmetic industry. However, within the cosmetic industry are layers of various procedures, focusing on different issues such as anti-aging, hair and tattoo removal, and skin resurfacing, which is why it continues to boom. It offers options and continues to meet the market’s demands as the consumer needs shift year over year.

So what’s a cosmetic laser, exactly? 

The cosmetic laser is a laser light therapy device that emits a specific light color onto the skin. Depending on the color of light, it has different effects on the body. Currently, cosmetic lasers are widely used in cosmetic dermatology and are divided into two categories: ablative and non-ablative lasers


Each type of laser achieves different goals. Ablative lasers vaporize the top layers of damaged skin, while non-ablative lasers penetrate through dermis layers without removing or damaging the skin. The ablative laser focuses on skin resurfacing, taking between 1 to 2 weeks for recovery. However, non-ablative lasers, including red light therapy products, focus on helping the body naturally heal itself from within, ideal for anti-aging and acne treatment, as well as non-cosmetic benefits. 

While COVID-19 placed numerous industries at the brink of extinction, the cosmetic laser industry flourished despite restrictions against non-emergency medical services. 

More than ever, consumers are seeking non-invasive or minimally invasive procedures to achieve their goals. Non-invasive cosmetic procedures combined with availability and affordability are propelling the upward trend. Aside from being affordable, non-invasive procedures are less painful and offer shorter recovery periods. A recent report is projected to grow by $5 billion within the next five years due to consumer demand.

Cosmetic laser therapy can be used for various non-invasive and non-pharmacological procedures, including skin tightening, reducing wrinkles and fine lines, enhancing collagen production, acne, and lesions. In other words, it’s the perfect natural solution for those who want to biohack their system and refrain from undergoing invasive treatments.

As people gain more awareness of invasive treatment risks and seek non-invasive anti-aging procedures, cosmetic laser therapy acts as an effective and safe alternative. More consumers are looking for long-lasting and low-maintenance treatment, which is also a reason why cosmetic laser therapy is attractive to many. Back in 2018, non-ablative laser therapy accounted for 65 percent of the total cosmetic laser market share, with these numbers increasing over time.

As the technology and availability of cosmetic laser products, such as red light therapy products increases, more beauty clinics, hospitals, medical spas, and salons are able to provide this non-invasive service. With this increase, consumers will be more educated on laser light therapy spreading demand from North America to Europe. Knowing this, the demand for cutting-edge cosmetic laser therapy will only continue to grow with time.
