Promoting Safe Medical Waste Disposal in Medical Aesthetic Hospital | Know MedWaste


As society progresses and living standards improve, the field of aesthetic medicine is rapidly expanding worldwide. The growing demand from consumers for aesthetic treatments has resulted in a proliferation of medical aesthetic facilities, spanning both urban and rural areas. These facilities encompass a broad spectrum of services, including aesthetic clinics, plastic surgery centers, and dermatology clinics, among others.

The advancement and application of aesthetic medicine technologies, such as the rising popularity of laser treatments, fillers, and Botox injections, have contributed to an increase in the number of individuals seeking a variety of aesthetic and cosmetic procedures at specialized medical aesthetics institutes.

According to a recent market report, the global aesthetic medicine market size was USD 82.46 billion in 2023 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 8.3% from 2024 to 2030. However, along with the growth in the number of medical aesthetic facilities is the important issue of medical tool use and waste management.

The Rise of Aesthetic Medicine

Medical waste is waste that may pose a significant risk to health and to the environment, and such waste that medical aesthetic hospitals may be involved in includes: infected residues such as disposable swabs, bandages and medical devices; pathogenic waste such as contaminated tissues, organs or body fluids; sharp waste such as needles, scalpels and disposable razor blades; and pharmaceutical waste such as outdated, unused and contaminated medicines and vaccines.

-Do medical aesthetic hospitals and clinics also need to manage medical waste?

Taking infectious waste as an example, bandages are needed to dress wounds, and infusion bottles and tubes are needed to administer anaesthetics and anti-inflammatory drugs. These items are frequently used in medical aesthetic facilities, so medical aesthetic facilities need safe, smart and efficient medical waste disposal equipment to handle abandoned tools with infection potential.

-What if medical waste is not treated?

Untreated medical waste can pose health risks, for example, unsterilized syringes and bandages can transmit pathogens, leading to cross-infection and the spread of infectious diseases. In addition, the indiscriminate disposal of untreated clinical waste may also pose a threat to the environment and public safety. Therefore, it is important for medical aesthetic hospitals to adopt effective medical waste management measures to ensure that safety and hygiene standards are met and to protect the health of their staff and patients.
