Medical aesthetic devices are used for treating a wide range of issues relating to a person’s appearance and looks.

The Aesthetic market is one of the most promising markets in the medical space, and according to Allied Market Research, the aesthetic market is expected to reach over $17, 992 million in 2023. Medical aesthetic devices are used for treating a wide range of issues relating to a person’s appearance and looks. For instance, age spots, pigmented lesions, skin laxity, cellulite, unwanted tattoos, stretch marks, skin discoloration, spider veins, and excess hairs are some of the issues aesthetic devices are used to treat.

The aesthetic treatment procedure can employ invasive and non–invasive approaches, while some clinics stick to one approach; others use a combination of both to further enhance a person’s looks.

The quest to look appealing and attractive has become the trend of today’s society, thus youths of both genders frequently seek out experts who can help them achieve this ‘goal’.

The need to get natural-looking results faster than ever before, with no downtime or medical risk, has resulted in major technical developments in lasers and other energy-based cosmetic equipment. Visionary clinic owners, physicians, and aestheticians are therefore ready to share the results required by their patients under one roof, in relatively short periods, which their clinical forebears would not have been capable of achieving without months of treatments or surgery.

With the advent of technological advancements, aesthetic devices have witnessed significant transformations such as high functionality, ease of operation, minimally invasive and non-invasive aesthetic procedures, and lower costs. It’s a no–brainer that the doctors who are significantly addressing the cry of the marketplace are the ones taking home the bag every now and again.

This guide will teach center owners, aestheticians, and physicians how to get the most out of their medical aesthetic equipment while also protecting their assets, maximizing return on investment, and providing the best clinical results possible for their patients.

Maintenance and Servicing

As with most electronic and mechanical devices, medical aesthetic devices also require a great deal of maintenance. Depending on the supplier or manufacturer, maintenance and servicing contracts always accompany aesthetic devices. Although some skeptics usually consider this move an upsell, however, never play down on the significance of such an offer as it can save you thousands of dollars in the bag.

Below are some reasons why maintenance and servicing contracts will be highly beneficial to your clinic:

Dedicated service scheduling and Emergency Contacts

You already have a lot of things vying for your time and attention, and knowing when to contact for service for your different systems is probably not at the top of your priority list. When you work with a vendor, your representative will monitor your normal maintenance program and notify you when action is required, allowing you to focus on your clinic and patients.

If you already have an arrangement with a supplier, you’ll know who to call if emergency service is required. When your aesthetic device breaks down unexpectedly, time is of importance, and you don’t want to lose valuable time.

Professional Engineers

Forming a bond with a professional who understands your business and is knowledgeable about your equipment benefits both sides. The support crew will not have to waste time learning about your specific equipment and needs if you have a planned maintenance arrangement. They will familiarize themselves with your business procedures ahead of time, so they know exactly which aesthetic devices are most important for your operations.

Professional aesthetic engineers understand what to look for and will put your system and handpieces through a checklist of operations, cleaning, replacing, and calibrating equipment when needed. If you use your cosmetic laser or medical equipment daily, it’s a no-brainer to schedule regular maintenance!

Cost Savings over the Life of the Device

One barrier that prevents clinic owners from signing a service contract with a vendor is the thought of paying upfront when repairs aren’t required and the aesthetic device is brand new. While it may be tempting to put off repairs until they are absolutely necessary, no one can foretell the future. A maintenance and service contract is likely to save you money in the long term since contracts are typically less expensive than call-outs for one-time repairs, and contracts assure a quick response, which means you won’t lose money.

Self Maintaining Your Aesthetic Device for optimum Functionality

Most doctors often overlook preventive maintenance but its value could easily save you lots of money in the long run. Thus, the regular maintenance of your aesthetic devices and cosmetic lasers is vital. Just like most capital investments, your aesthetic devices should be kept in near perfect condition. To the best of your ability, it is best to take proper care of your devices by adopting the following best practices:

Temperature Check: The majority of medical aesthetic devices are kept within the clinic, and due to our reasonably steady environment, temperature extremes are not reached indoors. Nonetheless, if your device is in storage for an extended amount of time, it may be subjected to unfavorable temperatures.

Most machines have an operating temperature, which is the temperature at which they run most efficiently and effectively while minimizing risk. The right temperature range will be indicated by your provider or the device itself; this will vary depending on the manufacturer and technology. Make sure you know the lowest and maximum working temperatures of your device if it is in storage or if we are expecting a cold period.

Cooling System Check: Before you begin your day, check the levels of your cooling system. Check to see whether you’re using deionized water. Deionized water has chemical and electrical qualities that make it the best choice for cooling-sensitive devices.

Check with your provider if your aesthetic machine needs a coolant additive as well. Don’t let your system overheat because you didn’t do a basic water cavity check. Take care not to overfill the container; the fluid might leak onto electrical components and cause significant damage.

Have the filters Cleaned: Too much dust and debris will cause the malfunction of your aesthetic devices, and if unattended to, will further lead to electrical and component damage.
