The aesthetic medicine market in the U.S. in 2020 was estimated at 86.2 billion dollars (71 billion euros), estimating that the growth until 2028 will be 9.8%. In the global market, minimally invasive procedures (botulinum toxin, fillers, peels, varicose veins, etc.) grow much faster. There is no specialty or specialization in Aesthetic Medicine despite its strength in the number of treatments worldwide, Spain being one of the countries that proportionally performed more treatments and in the number of indexed publications.
Focus is placed on personal improvement; with little or no invasive techniques, well-studied materials and with minimal adverse effects, light-based appliances with long years of development. All of the above makes it distinctly different from hospital specialties (MIR system).

The references in PubMed (Medline), the search engine with the largest medical database in the world, for botulinum toxin are more than 20,000.

This is the most demanded and practiced treatment in aesthetic medicine consultations around the world.

The practice of fillers follows in second place with over 15,000 results.

This master's degree is designed by professionals with a long history in the private practice of aesthetic medicine, who are well acquainted with the techniques, technologies and trends (TTT) of today's society.

More Academic Information


Aesthetic Medicine is a multidisciplinary entity that uses knowledge, materials and technology for the prevention, maintenance and repair of the aesthetic aspect of people, without forgetting to promote healthy habits in terms of general well-being.

The need for quality academic training is based on the growing social demand for minimally invasive medical-aesthetic treatments, which do not require recovery times that interfere with the normal social and labor activity of people. It is required that every doctor who dedicates themselves to the clinical practice of this discipline has the necessary training to responsibly exercise the important comprehensive care work at the service of patients who are increasingly knowledgeable and demanding of Aesthetic Medicine.

Aesthetic Medicine is developed exclusively in private medical practice and is not covered by public medicine, this has generated an important health-medical sector with an industrial component of devices, pharmaceutical industry and services, of great economic value. Many medical professionals have directed their professional activity towards this sector due to the low remuneration of the rest of the public health specialties in comparison to other countries in our context. A minimally successful medical service in this sector tends to provide professional fees that are much more favorable than the average for other specialties.
