With the rise in minimally invasive procedures, Injectable and gel implants are becoming the new normal among patients. The global market size of Dermal fillers is expected to increase by 10% in 2031 and is currently valued at more than $2 billion and growing. These medical device implants are approved by the FDA to improve the facial appearance of an individual temporarily. While some dermal fillers are naturally absorbed over time, patients may need to repeat the procedure after some time to maintain the desired effect. 


Allergan Aesthetics, Galderma Laboratories, and Q-Med AB got the FDA’s green light for Dermal Fillers and Gel Implants.
