The pharmaceutical industry is facing a tougher environment in general, due to harder regulations for gaining approvals for mainstream products, economic issues, and a dwindling pipeline of new products. Reliance on blockbuster drugs is all but over, causing a shift of focus for many drug research and development entities. By focusing on cosmetic medications, many manufacturers are realizing less scrutiny from the FDA and a growing need in the niche markets such as dermatology.
