Guidepoint Global Aesthetics Market Tracker Achieves Five-Year Milestone

New York, NY March 27, 2012–Guidepoint Global, LLC, a leading primary research firm serving Corporations, Institutional Investors and Consultancies, announced the five-year anniversary of its Aesthetics Market Tracker. The Aesthetics Market Tracker delivers monthly web-based access to business and competitive insight such as market share, market size and growth for US Breast Implants, Dermal Fillers and Neurotoxins.

We are very excited to have surpassed the five-year milestone with the Aesthetics data sets. Over the past few years the Aesthetics market has experienced significant challenges and events that have been illuminated in our data,” said Brian Cosgrove, Director of Guidepoint’s Tracker Team, and the Analyst who has led Guidepoint’s Aesthetics coverage since its launch in January 2007.

Guidepoint’s Aesthetics Suite includes Trackers for four distinct areas, aggregating monthly Breast Implant, Dermal Filler, Neurotoxin and Weight Loss Procedure data (weight loss data four years old). Monthly data is reported by same-site panels comprised of approximately 90 sites for Breast Implants, 150 physicians across 80 sites for Dermal Fillers, 300 practitioners across 150 sites for Neurotoxins, and 130 surgeons across 70 sites for Weight Loss Procedures. Since inception, Guidepoint’s Aesthetics market size, market share and other market data have provided users with clear visibility into the market dynamics of each of the four categories.

“With the March 9th approval by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration of Sientra Inc.’s Silimed silicone gel-filled breast implant, Guidepoint’s data will look to capture this launch’s effect on overall volumes and manufacturer market shares going forward,“ observed Mr. Cosgrove.  “In addition, the neurotoxin market with Botox, Dysport and Xeomin; the dermal filler market with new products emerging; and the weight loss procedural market with gastric bypass, gastric banding and sleeve gastrectomy vying for share, will all be focal points of the Aesthetics Guidepoint Tracker offering throughout the remainder of 2012.”
