Impact of COVID-19
The pandemic has changed the business environment for numerous organizations across the globe. Several countries had implemented certain restrictions on imports and exports because of the pandemic. This has also affected the healthcare industry as many countries are dependent on other countries for raw material supply, component supply, system supply, and technology. COVID-19 has significantly impacted the cellulite treatment market globally. Owing to the restrictions imposed by the government in several regions, several countries restricted plastic surgeons from performing elective surgical procedures.

The patient must undergo cellulite treatment on a regular basis to remove the fatty layer and retain the desired outcomes.

Value Chain Analysis
The global cellulite treatment market is growing steadily and is expected to continue growing at the same rate soon. This is due to the growing contribution of existing players to make the product available to the public and the rising demand for aesthetic and cosmetic procedures coupled with the rising investments in cosmetic procedures research is helping manufacturers of intermediate goods to access market entry.

Non-invasive treatment procedure doesn't involve the introduction of instruments into the body. In this procedure, the healthy tissue is not destroyed, and there is no contact with the internal body cavity or mucosa. A trained and licensed aesthetician can easily and safely perform Non-invasive treatment. The procedure uses energy-based technologies such as radiofrequency, infrared light, electromagnetic fields, cryo treatment, and radial impulse therapy, among others. A few FDA-approved non-invasive treatments include VelaShape, Venus Freeze, ThermiSmooth Body, and Zimmer Z Wave.
Minimally invasive cellulite treatment is a surgical procedure that is carried out through minute incisions. Laser therapy is one of the popular minimally invasive cellulite treatments. Additionally, other minimally invasive cellulite treatment procedures include liposuction technique and micro-blading technique. Moreover, in laser-based cellulite treatment, a small tube is inserted through the minimal incision, and laser energy is used to melt the fat beneath the skin minimizing the tension in the fibrous bands that further offer the sculpted shape in the treated areas.
Topical cellulite treatment involves the application of creams, lotions, gels, foams, and ointments on the affected area. These products temporarily reduce the visibility of cellulite. In addition, the creams tighten the cellulite-affected skin making them firmer and smoother. Moreover, caffeine is used in topical creams due to its diuretic property. Caffeine advances the blood flow in the applied area and manipulates the fat's water content, which further contours the shape of the affected area.
