Even if you have an established spa or cosmetic procedure practice, it's not a good idea to fall into too much of a routine. Your clients are probably going to be looking for the latest and greatest available procedures all the time. A fairly simply thing like adding one or more aesthetic lasers to your practice can make a huge difference as far as bringing in new clients and making your old clients come back.
What Laser Devices Are Capable Of
Many people think of laser devices as being used to zap away unwanted wrinkles. They can certainly be used for that purpose, but if you add the right ones to your practice you can offer many more treatments besides just wrinkle reduction. That's all thanks to advancements in laser technology since the treatments first came to light.
Lasers have been used to treat wrinkles for many years, though their popularity didn't increase that much until the 1990s. Today's lasers are like those in some ways, but completely different in others. They are capable of performing in ways that the old machines could not. They can get rid of wrinkles, unwanted hair, scars, and even cellulite deposits. So, adding one to your practice is sure to increase your income.
Balancing Your Budget While Balancing Your Laser Needs
If you have concerns about spending a large amount of money on an aesthetic laser device, you can put your mind at ease by renting one instead, at least for a short while. If necessary, you can even rent the services of a trained technician to operate it in your clinic. By renting a machine for only a certain number of days a month, you can minimize your cost while increasing the profits of your business.
Of course, rental is not the best long term solution, unless you use a rent-to-own program that will allow you to eventually buy the machine. If you're in more of a rush to buy your own machine, the next best thing is to buy a used laser at a discount.
The Availability of Used Medical Equipment
The good news is that used medical equipment has become more readily available in recent years, especially online. The even better news is that you can save thousands of dollars by purchasing a used device instead of a new one. That savings also translates to faster profits because the machinery will pay for itself quicker.
There is something to be said for buying brand new machines as well. So, don't rule that out as a possibility. However, if your budget is a concern, it is important to know that machines that are less than 4 or 5 years old are fairly similar to this year's models. Not only that, but they will be well known already, which means you should be able to find accurate reviews of them before you make a purchase. If you choose to buy a brand new device, expect that you might not have access to that kind of information immediately, but the flip side of that is that newer machines may last longer and have longer warranties.
