Dermatology devices assist in enhancing and improving the patient's skin
conditions. With the use of dermatological devices such as dermatoscopes,
microscopes, and imaging techniques, the dermatologists are able to identify
the skin disorders at an early stage. Factors driving the demand for
dermatological devices are the desire for youthful appearance, increasing
incidence rates of skin diseases, increasing trend towards non-invasive
aesthetic procedures, and technological advancements. People are becoming
more conscious about their appearance and are aware of the skin disorders
caused due to exposure to sun. Dermatological devices are used for the
treatment of various skin indications such as scars, psoriasis, acne, skin
cancer, varicose veins, pigment and vascular lesions.

With increasing number of people suffering from skin disorders and more
number of people opting for less invasive cosmetic surgeries, the demand for
dermatology diagnostic and treatment devices is on the rise. Of all the other
treatment devices, LED light therapy devices account for the largest share
due to the increasing incidences of skin diseases such as vascular lesion,
pigment lesion, and skin cancer. The total market for treatment devices was
estimated to be $3.6 billion in 2010.

Factors driving the growth of the U.S. dermatology devices market are:
increasing number of people getting affected by various skin disorders such
as acne, and harmful effects to skin due to exposure to sun. Thus, with the
increasing need for skin diagnosis of diseases such as melanoma and
non-melanoma skin cancers, dermatologists are making use of dermatological
devices for skin analysis. In the U.S., there are loads of people suffering
from various skin diseases such as psoriasis and non-melanoma skin cancer.
Around 3.5 million people are suffering from non-melanoma skin disease, and
1/5th of the total population above the age of 70 years suffers from the same
disease and more than 5.8 million people suffer from psoriasis, a chronic
skin disorder. Thus, several people getting affected by these diseases
influences the growth of dermatological devices.

Increasing usage of mobile technology for communication has generated
potential market for development of the use of this technology in
dermatology. A mobile phone camera can easily capture the images and send
across the image to concerned doctor using the GSM network. Mobile devices
are also used to transfer data to the places where the internet is not
available. There is a huge base of mobile phone users in developed and
emerging countries. In BRIC (Brazil, Russia, India and China), more than 1
billion people use mobiles. This proves that there is a huge potential for
the development of tele-dermatology in emerging countries as well.
