The Many Benefits of Buying Used Medical Lasers
There’s no disputing the value of providing medical laser procedures as part of your skincare practice. Not only are they helpful for your clients, but they are so popular that you can make an easy profit from them. The only big question is should you buy a brand new machine or “settle” for a used one. The short answer is that buying a used laser machine isn’t really “settling” at all. In fact, used lasers can actually benefit your practice in ways that brand new ones can’t. Let’s look at some examples.
What Do New Lasers Do That Used Lasers Can’t?
There is honestly nothing that new laser machines do that used devices are incapable of doing in almost the same way. Yes, technologies do change over large amounts of time. But in the laser industry those changes take more than just a year or two usually. So, a used device should be perfectly fine as long as it’s younger than about four or five years old.
The only thing a new laser can do that an older model may not do is give you and your clients a false sense of security. The brand new machine might be a bit more “flashy” and interesting at first, but remember that it too will be a used machine soon enough.
Saving Some Capital by Buying a Used Device
With all that said, it’s pretty obvious that a used machine is probably the better choice, but there are multiple reasons for that. The most obvious is, of course, the lower immediate cost. Used machines bought online have particularly competitive prices. If you do your research, you might be able to save thousands of dollars off of what you would have spent buying a new model.
Cash Recovery Will Occur Faster with Used Lasers
You also need to think about your cash recovery. In other words, how long will it take you to use the laser to earn back the same amount of money that you spent on it? Clearly, it takes less time to earn back less money. Therefore, used machines pay for themselves at a faster rate of speed than new models. What does that mean for your business? It means that you’ll start earning actual profits from providing laser treatments much sooner than you otherwise would.
Which Used Laser Resellers Should You Trust?
There are a lot of well-established medical equipment and laser device resellers with online presences, but there are also a lot of online scam artists out there. The easiest way to guarantee success is to only trust companies that have verifiable reputations for excellent machines and service. But even a company you have never heard of could be legitimate.
The best way to tell if a company is legitimate is to examine its website carefully. Does it go into a great deal of detail about each machine? How many different types of devices is it offering for sale? Does it list clear contact information that you can verify? If you are satisfied that everything adds up, that’s the only time that you should consider making your final purchase of a used laser for your medical practice.
