Cosmetic Laser Repair Options for Your Laser Device
Cosmetic laser repair options are often overlooked, especially by first-time cosmetic laser device owners. So, if you want to get yourself a laser device to add to your cosmetic business, you should definitely avoid falling into the trap of being unprepared when it comes to repairing that laser device.
Warranties for Aesthetic Lasers
The first question regarding repair of your chosen aesthetic laser should be does it come with any sort of warranty? If you're buying a brand new cosmetic laser device, chances are good that it does. That warranty may even be good for up to two years, depending on the manufacturer and model. On the other hand, used cosmetic lasers for sale might not even have warranties, or their warranties may only last for a short time, like 6 months or less.
The next thing you should think about is after-warranty service. Obviously, the manufacturer of the aesthetic laser will probably be happy to offer an extended care contract to you. But the catch may be that you have to pay astronomical fees just to have a contract with them, and then pay extra for procedures and parts when you actually need a repair. If that sounds like a horrible deal to you, you aren't alone.
The Existence of Third Party Repair Technicians
It's those very service contracts that have led to the existence of so many third party repair technicians. Those technicians would be more than happy to repair your aesthetic laser and only charge you the one-time repair fee, rather than sticking you with an expensive service contract. That is, if they happen to service the laser device model that you have.
Unfortunately, many business owners don't think to find a third party cosmetic laser repair service before they actually purchase a specific medical laser device. That's where you can run into trouble because not all companies service all types and models of cosmetic laser equipment.
Which Models Are More Likely to be Serviced by Third Party Companies?
The question of which models are more likely to be serviced by third party companies is one that is pretty easy to answer, but it may not be the answer that you expect. The answer is that most third party companies specialize in repairing laser devices that are about 2 to 5 years old. The reason is that they don't necessarily have the information or access to parts that they would need to repair a brand new aesthetic laser device. They are more likely to have the knowledge and parts necessary to fix lasers that are at least a couple years old. See Laser Repair Options.
The Good News
The good news is that aesthetic lasers haven't changed much in the last few years. So, if you're interested in third party cosmetic laser repair, you can invest in a laser that is a couple years old and is serviceable by a company in your area. It should still perform all of the functions you want efficiently. So, you don't have to worry about being stuck in an emergency with no access to a fast repair team.
