Learning About and Buying a Used Medical Laser

Medical laser devices are not limited to one type anymore.  They come in variety of models to treat skin issues, from removing blemishes and lesions to reducing the appearance of wrinkles.  Some medical lasers are used for optical repair, dermatological procedures, or dental applications.   Other laser equipment is for various surgical treatments.

The regular purpose of purchasing a medical laser equipment is to be able to offer a variety of procedures to your clients.  If so, most customers appreciate these cosmetic treatments:

  • Laser Hair Removal
  • Removal of Lesions and Acne Scars
  • Skin Tightening
  • Wrinkle Removal

Cost Versus Effectiveness of a Medical Laser Machine

It's difficult to predict your profit margins over the long-term when trying to decide if the expense of medical laser equipment is worth it or not.  New machines cost more than $100,000 leaving you little money for anything else.  Even if you expect a huge profit later on, it doesn't help you right now if you don't have the funds to obtain the equipment needed.

A More Affordable Solution

You don't need to break the bank to have a cosmetic laser in your practice.  Purchasing previously owned equipment costs far less than the new machines and makes your goals more attainable.  Since they are strictly tested by ethical resale companies, you can be confident your laser device will stay in working order for a while.

For common aesthetic services, a pre-owned laser machine will suffice.  It will still do the job intended without the extra expense of purchasing the latest model.  Keeping up with the latest trends isn't necessary.

Guidance in Choosing the Right Pre-owned Laser Machine

So you are all set to purchase a used cosmetic laser device for your practice.  The next step is to find a reputable resale company with the right machine for you.  It's easy to find plenty of resale companies online.  The real trick is finding one that is trustworthy and won't scam you into purchasing a bad laser device.  Invest some time into your research.

The perfect scenario for finding your used laser device is to find a resale company with a physical store you can visit, where you can see and touch the equipment from all angles.  A flat picture, like the online stores, just doesn't provide the same experience.  You might be able to work around that by requesting an internet conference.  The dealer can show you each angle of the device, possibly demonstrate it in operation, and provide additional information.  Walk away from a dealer who isn't able to answer specific questions about the laser equipment as they may be a fraud.

Before you approach a dealer, know exactly what you want in a laser device.  Don't let the resale company redirect you into a more expensive model, especially if it doesn't provide the service you were looking to offer to your clients.  Be firm about looking at several different models to find the machine that will work best for your company.  It's important that your laser equipment work for you and your clients.
