Basic Guide To Buying Cosmetic Laser Equipment

You want people to seek your business for quality aesthetic treatments and services. Cosmetic laser equipment can make the difference between lackluster and spectacular results.

With so many options regarding devices and distributors, it can be hard to know where to start the buying process. Let this basic guide to buying cosmetic laser equipment help you make informed decisions.

1. Conduct Market Research

If you don’t yet know the specific procedures you want to offer, start by conducting market research. What do your patients and potential patients want? What treatments do people in your area like to get? Is there an opportunity for you to offer special services that your competitors can’t match?

Treatment options you can focus on include:

  • Skin tightening
  • Tattoo removal
  • Hair removal
  • Treatment for fine lines and wrinkles
  • Pigmented lesions
  • Precancerous lesions (as a preventative measure)
  • Treatment for acne and acne scars

Also keep in mind other factors that influence what kind of equipment you need. For example, your clients’ ethnicities and skin types.

2. Choose Appropriate Laser Devices

After deciding on the kinds of aesthetic laser procedures you want to provide, choose the correct laser device for the job. Different lasers work at different depth levels on the skin and achieve different results. So, for example, if you want to perform hair removal and tattoo removal, you will need two different devices.

Of course, your provider can give you more details about equipment and ensure you choose the right lasers. But the more you know about the device you want, the more empowered your buying decisions.

3. Determine Your Budget and Financing

The third important step in this basic guide to buying cosmetic laser equipment is to determine your budget. You can outright buy, lease, or finance your equipment. Refurbished lasers give you the opportunity to buy reliable equipment at a more affordable price point.

For many facilities, buying a refurbished device makes the most financial sense. And when you buy from a reputable company, you’ll use laser equipment that gives your patients the results they seek.

4. Choose a Reliable Company

Your expertise makes the difference between lackluster and spectacular results for your patients. Similarly, a trustworthy company makes a difference in equipment quality and your satisfaction.

Ask your prospective provider about their terms of service, test their knowledge of the laser device, and ask about warranty considerations. And if you’re buying a refurbished machine, ask about how their in-house department repairs and replaces parts and the tests they perform.
