As insurance companies and HMOs squeeze more and more profit from professional medical practices, physicians must find new sources of income. Enter elective cosmetic laser procedures.
Laser lipolysis, hair removal, tattoo removal, fractional skin rejuvenation (both ablative and non-ablative), photofacials, pigmented lesion removal, vein treatments, cellulite treatments, and other elective cosmetic procedures have shifted from extravagant to mainstream—you cannot open a women’s magazine without a mention of some sort of cosmetic laser treatment.
However, the highly prohibitive costs of new lasers can make the profitability of your new business nearly impossible. Fortunately, the advancements in laser technology over the last few years and changes in the economy now offer you the ability to buy almost any type of laser at a significant savings—often 50% off of manufacturer prices.
