The skin care industry rapidly became popular in the past several decades. Lasers were the largest contributing factor to this growth as they offered a non-invasive method of treating skin for conditions and rejuvenation. Plastic surgery has declined in the past decade as clients sought ways to avoid going under the knife. Lasers offer far less risk and far shorter recoveries. Before you purchase one, you need to understand what they can do.

Laser devices vary by delivery method, wave lengths, and what elements are utilized. Here are some examples of these devices:
- Infrared - uses light
- Thermal - uses heat
- CO2 - uses gas
- Radio therapy - uses radio frequencies
- Ultherapy - uses ultrasound
Different types of lasers can treat the same skin conditions in varying degrees. just as one laser can treat several different conditions. For instance, radio therapy, infrared lasers and ultherapy can each be used to tighten skin. Radio therapy can be used also for hair removal, scar reduction, and to remove acne. Knowing the type of laser and what applications each device offers will help you to narrow down your choices so you can select the right one for your business.

By doing price comparisons, you should find one that meets your requirements while still being affordable.

Had you purchased a brand new device, you would be in the red on your books for a lengthy period of time.
Clients Stay Satisfied
