Have you ever thought about purchasing used aesthetic lasers for your skincare practice? If not, it might be time to do so, especially if you're finding new machines to be a bit out of your financial reach.
You Might Not Have the Capital for a New Device
The fact of the matter is that new laser machines can cost more than $100,000 each. If you have a small cosmetics business, and especially if your business is new, you just might not have that kind of capital laying around. That's all the more reason to invest in an aesthetic laser machine. It's a great way to increase the popularity of your business and get your capital to eventually grow. But when a new machine is out of reach a used one might be the only good option.
Making the Most of Your Existing Capital
Another thing you should definitely think about is the fact that having enough capital to buy new medical equipment and perform laser skincare procedures doesn't mean that you should spend that capital, especially not on a single device. So, even if you have an established and popular business, you might want to save some money by investing in a used device.
Any money that you save by buying a used machine as opposed to a new one can be set aside for a number of purposes. You could buy a second machine to increase your business even more, or you could put that saved money toward remodeling, opening a new location, or any one of a number of other business expenses.
Regaining Your Investment Quickly is Important
Any piece of equipment, new or used, is an investment. That means that you can expect to spend some amount of money. You can also expect it to take a bit of time to recover that money. In the case of used laser machines, you'll be able to recover that investment faster than you would if you bought a new one, since you won't have invested as much money initially. That means it will be that much sooner that you see your losses turn into profits.

The resale market for used medical equipment is huge, thanks to the internet. There are plenty of online resellers who carefully test their used machinery before they sell it to anyone. Many of them even offer warranties on their used devices. So, there's no need to question whether or not the device will work, as long as you get it from a legitimate source.
There's also no need to worry about whether or not the used device can provide services that your clients expect and want. Machines that are up to 5 years old or so should be able to keep up with current demands with no problem. In fact, many companies release supposedly new models on an annual basis, but only make very minor changes to the earlier models and call it new. So, you can save money with a clear conscience knowing that you are still going to provide a high quality service.
