The MNML Guide to Purchasing Pre-Owned Aesthetic Devices

As medical spa owners, doctors, or estheticians, purchasing an aesthetic device can be an expensive investment. With the medical aesthetics industry booming and new technologies regularly being introduced, deciding on the right device to purchase can be daunting. One of the more cost-effective options for acquiring an aesthetic device is purchasing pre-owned equipment. In this blog post, we’ll be outlining the numerous advantages that come with opting for pre-owned aesthetic devices, versus buying new ones directly from manufacturers.


Cost Savings

The most obvious benefit of purchasing pre-owned aesthetic devices is the significant reduction in cost. As opposed to buying new equipment, where you’ll be paying the full retail price premium, purchasing pre-owned machinery can save you up to 50% of the cost of a new one. This cost savings can be especially beneficial for medical spas, which may have a limited budget for purchasing new equipment. Additionally, it allows for the possibility of investing in multiple pre-owned devices, as opposed to just one new piece of equipment.


Newer Models and Advanced Technology

Purchasing pre-owned aesthetic devices may lead to the acquisition of newer models and advanced technology features than if you were to buy new equipment. While the prices of new technology may still be too steep for most medical spas budget, acquiring a pre-owned device may give one the opportunity to purchase a newer model with features such as new safety considerations and better marketing tools for your business.


Saves on Time

Purchasing pre-owned aesthetic devices can be a faster process compared to buying new equipment from a manufacturer. Most pre-owned equipment businesses offer equipment that has already been refurbished, tested, and maintained to ensure optimal performance. This means that once you make a purchase, your device could be up and running within a short period compared to new equipment where manufacturers have a filter-in process for sales channels.


Eco-Friendly Choice

With sustainability being a high-priority agenda in many industries, going for pre-owned aesthetic devices may also double up as an eco-friendly choice. It is worthwhile noting that some pre-owned devices have been previously used, but environmental sustainability is preserved in a couple of ways. The device is being reused instead of ending up in a landfill, and the reseller generates less waste from buying from the manufacturer. It's a win-win situation, cost-effective and eco-friendly.


These are just but a few of the benefits that come with purchasing pre-owned aesthetic devices. Medical Spa owners usually face tough choices in deciding what devices to acquire while keeping up with the trends without breaking the bank. Investing in pre-owned devices is easier to manage and can lead to cost savings. In turn, more devices can be acquired, leading to more opportunities to offer various treatments. With the medical aesthetic industry booming and new technologies being often introduced, purchasing pre-owned aesthetic devices with advanced technology features constitutes an eco-friendly and cost-effective alternative to buying new equipment from manufacturers.
