What You Need to Know About Buying a Laser Machine

For a couple decades, people have been trying to improve their appearance without going under the knife.  They want it done is a calm atmosphere, not in hospitals, and with as little recovery time as possible.  Cosmetic practices are booming now, providing the very environment and the procedures clients are seeking.  If you are looking to open your own practice, now is the time to do it.

Open Your Practice Using Medical Lasers

You may not have a lot of money to start with if you are opening your own cosmetic practice.  At least, not right away.  If you are serious about making a profit and building a  client base quickly, you need to consider purchasing your own medical laser.  Not having the funds doesn't mean you can't obtain one right now.  Instead, you might want to look at pre-owned machines.

Positives of Used Medical Devices

An obvious advantage to purchasing a used cosmetic laser device is the price difference between that and a new laser.  To buy new, you are looking at paying in excess of $100,000 whereas a secondhand machine can cost as little as 20% of that amount.

If you are very careful about finding a decent broker of second-hand lasers, your machine should be in great condition.  Reputable dealers put the machines through strict testing to confirm the machine is in fine working order before placing them for sale.  You shouldn't have any issues with the device for a while.

Negatives of Used Medical Devices

Not all brokers are honest.  It's a well known fact that many disreputable dealers exist, waiting to con you out of your money.  The internet is full of them.  Don't do business until you've carefully looked into a resale dealer to verify they are an established business with a solid reputation.

New machines come with manufacturer warranties, but they expire within a certain time frame.  A second-hand laser machine is often older than the warranty period, meaning you will have to pay for your repairs.  Make sure there is a local repair shop to handle your laser equipment repairs or it may cost you significantly down the road.

Another negative to buying a previously owned laser device is that you don't get to try it out before making your purchase.  You could wind up with a broken device or one that is in awful condition.

Take the time to check out the resale broker and verify that they are legitimate.  Research the machine to know how it will function.  Make certain there is a repair shop in your vicinity that handles the laser device you plan to buy.  If you are careful, you will find the right laser equipment for you to help get your business up and running.
