FAQ – Used Aesthetic Lasers
Why should I buy a used aesthetic laser when I can buy a new one?
The most obvious advantage of buying anything pre-owned is getting the same item that you want for less money. Everybody's finances are limited--even those of "well-paid" medical professionals. What many people don't realize is that a huge chunk of a physician's salary is always going to be reserved for medical liability and malpractice insurance. The reality of the matter is that most medical professionals don't actually bring home close to what their projected salaries would suggest. Those who have families and their own practices especially need to save where they can. That's why buying used equipment is so important.
When you buy used lasers, you'll typically save a huge amount of money. Many pre-owned aesthetic lasers can be purchased for up to 75% off of the price listed by the manufacturer. At the very least, you'll likely save 40% to 50%. For a new aesthetic laser costing $100,000, you might only shell out $50,000 for a savings for $50,000. That is a massive quantity of cash to still have in your bank account, and it could do wonders for you when your business or family is in a bind.
There is an enormous selection of used aesthetic lasers on the market right now, and there are several major reasons for that. First, many cosmetic offices are leasing lasers instead of buying them to cut costs. While that might sound like a good idea for the short-term, you'd be making a far wiser investment by purchasing a used laser. The leased lasers are often available for purchase as used units. Secondly, banks repossess many aesthetic lasers from failed practices. Some of these are practically brand new, but you can have them at seriously discounted prices. It's safe to say that most models from big name manufacturers are available on the pre-owned market.
Even doctors have a hard time getting qualified for a loan these days. It's unlikely that you'll be able to take out more than $100,000 without impeccable credit, a high salary, and a great employment record. Taking out somewhere in the neighborhood of $30,000 to $70,000, on the other hand, is a much more probable feat. Fortunately, a large number of used lasers fall within this price range. That means not having to dip into your own savings at all.
What happens if issues with the used laser arise after the purchase?
Every laser that we sell has been rigorously tested for functionality, so it's not likely that you'll need to have repairs done for a very long time. However, if you happen to get a unit that malfunctions unexpectedly, we have a working relationship with a trusted team of experienced service technicians. The best part is that you'll receive your service at a discounted rate that's much lower than what you'd be charged by an out-of-network technician.
If you want to minimize repair costs, the best course of action would be to schedule regular check-ups for all of your lasers. This kind of routine maintenance will keep them in working order so that you don't have to worry about something going wrong just as you're about to see a patient. Our manufacturer-trained technicians also provide the regular maintenance service at a bargain price, so you have nothing to lose. Keeping your lasers well-maintained will save you tons of money in the long run.
When parts need to be replaced, you can get them through our service department, and our technicians will do the installation. Again, you'd be charged less for the parts by going with our service because manufacturers usually sell them to individual owners at an inflated price. Our parts contracts means that we buy in bulk, and we pass on the savings to all our customers.
