Drugs such as botulinum toxins, retinoids, acid peels, 5-alpha reductase and lipase inhibitors associated with cutaneous ageing
, photodamage, pigmentation defects, alopecia, and the lipodermal disorders of obesity and gynoid lipodystrophy are critically discussed to provide a detailed analysis of the high-growth market sector estimated at US$1.
In-depth analysis and discussion on the pathophysiology and prevalence of the main ageing and lifestyle disorders, including alopecia, cutaneous ageing
