A strong area of focus for Valeant is our aesthetics segment, which provides patients with products designed to optimize beauty and address signs of aging. Our broad portfolio of products includes facial injectables, energy-based devices and professional skincare products that address a variety of conditions including facial wrinkles, pigmentation conditions, body sculpting and skin tightening.
We attribute our progress within this segment to our commitment to specialty categories, our continuing development of relationships with physicians and our comprehensive portfolio, which offers dermatologists, plastic surgeons and other specialists the broadest and most-attractive aesthetics product offering currently in the industry.
A number of strategic acquisitions have allowed us to build this segment and add products that offer value and strong brand recognition. We see other opportunities to continue to grow this area via additional acquisitions and by significantly expanding our sales force.
Some of Valeant’s key offerings in the aesthetics area include Liposonix®, Thermage®, Fraxel®, Clear + Brilliant® and the Obagi line of professional skincare products. Innovation is an important factor in the aesthetics market, predominately through formulation improvement, which provides excellent low-risk R&D opportunities for Valeant.
