For most medical practitioners in the market for aesthetic laser equipment, whether to purchase a new unit or get a secondhand one poses a dilemma. In some instances, some will go for new units in the hope that it will ensure they have a warranty with regards to the working of the equipment. This is usually at a huge cost since new aesthetic laser equipment is very expensive. Some will, however, go for secondhand units owing to the low prices of these units. This dilemma is one I will try to delve into and give the various advantages that accrue to purchasing secondhand aesthetic laser equipment.
New aesthetic laser equipment is very expensive, as can be seen on The Laser Agent. This means that acquiring one requires huge amounts of money. A new unit could set you back more than $30,000. This is in addition to all other costs that include installation costs. In the secondhand market, however, it is possible to acquire a unit at a fraction of the price of a new one. This is especially important when you are financially constrained. I, however, do have to state that you need to ensure that you are buying from a reputable reseller. This is to ensure that the equipment you get is in good working condition. You will also need to ensure that the equipment can be serviced by a third party. This is important so that you don’t find yourself having to call the manufacturer for servicing as usually, it will be very expensive. You also need to be very keen on all service records as well as records of all work done on the machine. Ensure you confirm that what you’re told is true.
Most of the available second-hand aesthetic laser equipment is composed of basic systems. This means that the equipment is easy to operate. This ensures you can easily navigate through the various controls. Also, these equipment with basic systems are easy to service, and the service parts are almost always readily available. This will save you from having to spend a fortune on servicing your laser equipment.
In the 21st century, with huge technological advances, most aesthetic laser equipment companies will regularly keep updating
their equipment. This means a laser equipment that was the epitome of technology yesterday is most likely considered old today. These machines are however not obsolete; they are very functional and reliable. Some practitioners will however still want to update to recent models and essentially decide to sell the older models. You are most likely to get a very good used aesthetic laser equipment as a result of this. You will be getting a fully functional equipment, which will serve you for years at a very low price. As I said, simply because a laser equipment isn’t the latest model doesn’t mean it’s obsolete.
Over time, very professional laser equipment resellers have surfaced. These are resellers who have a team of qualified people who will test the equipment before they deliver. They will check the equipment to ensure it meets the safety and standard requirements. This ensures that even though the laser equipment is secondhand, it has been taken through the necessary quality control procedures. With this, you will be getting a quality equipment at a fraction of the price of a new one with the added advantage of the availability of qualified personnel to look at your equipment should the need arise.
