With the imposition of the lockdown, many aesthetic surgeries and visits got cancelled, which impacted the market's growth during the early pandemic phase. However, as per the January 2021 article Dr. Maurizio Viel, a plastic surgeon based at the Dubai-based London Center for Aesthetic Surgery, states that when clinics started opening in May, there was a huge demand for treatment. It also reported that the demand for botox and fillers is exceptional for nonsurgical treatments. It also reported that there was a huge waiting list for surgical procedures too. Thus, the studied market had initially impacted by COVID-19 but has regained its growth and is expected to show significant growth over time.

Certain factors, such as the growing number of aesthetic procedures in the country and growing medical tourism coupled with the establishment of new facilities for aesthetic procedures, drive the growth of the market in the country.

The increasing number of aesthetic procedures in the country is also propelling the growth of the market. For instance, as per the Dubai Health Statistics, 2021, the total number of procedures performed in skin care clinics in the private sector reached 583,909 in 2021 compared to 223,507 in 2020. Such an increasing number of procedures creates the need for more devices, thus driving growth of the market.

Further, the increasing medical tourism in the country for skin care is also propelling the growth of the market. As per the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery 2020 survey, the United Arab Emirates is one of the top five countries visited by foreign patients for such procedures. Additionally, the Dubai Health Statistics, 2021, reported 79% of the cosmetic procedures i.e. 459,785 procedures performed in United Arab Emirates in 2021 are on foreign patients and only 124,124 procedures are United Arab Emirates patients. Such factors depict there is high medical tourism in the country and thus are expected to contribute to the growth of the market. However, social stigma concerns and poor reimbursement procedures are the factors that restrain the growth of the market.
