The few times a laser machine has come up for sale ( used) locally it ranged anywhere from 25000 dollars up. That’s alot of peanuts baby! People buy these machines, to make money. So on top of the purchase cost you are paying for a technicians training and knowledge to use the laser. Just the basic training course here locally is $9000 ! And at that, those poor students walk away with nearly nothing, barely enough to operate the machine.
Lets average it out, and say including furnishings, machine, technician ( without even paying rent) to add laser to your business costs somewhere in the region of $50000. Minimum!
That money has to come from somewhere. While I’m sure there are lots of great laser technicians out there, with this kind of investment on the line, there is NO WAY any of those technicians is going to tell you anything that would lead you NOT to use their service. They have manpower to pay for, mortgages on equippment, taxes, rent, and the only way they can make a go of it, is to keep that machine going through as much of the business day as is humanly possible.
Like any service, it is up to the customer to to determine in the end whether that service is right for them. The techs are not going to tell you donat have laser…ever. They will not talk about hyperpigmentation, and if asked, will surely downplay the effects. They will not tell you that that red hair wont come off one little bit from using laser. Ever.They will talk ad-naseum about the benefits of their service, because they are front line salespeople. It’s no different than any service .
When was the last time you went to your mechanic to have work done and he told you to go down the street because it would be cheaper? When did you ever go to your accountant and they tell you to do your taxes yourself and save a buck? Did the pool cleaner ever say to you , hey, dont do your pool every week, every two is certainly enough for your useage? Never does this happen. And it is absolutely no different with laser technicians, be they medical, a medispa or toby’s esthetics on the corner. There is too much to lose, and way too much money on the line.
So I’m supportive of this idea. Because the information isnt available anywhere, and in fact, isnt all that apparent on hairtell either. There simply isnt another place for the consumer to educate themselves. If Hairtell doesnt present it, there simply isnt another place for them to find it easily.
