Our Recommended suppliers
A common questions we are asked with regards both lasers and aesthetic devices is:
"where is the equipment actually made?"
You need to know exactly what you are getting for your money, regardless of whether you are purchasing an entry-level system or a top-of-range device.
Many suppliers state “made in ...” but is the equipment made where they say it is - or has it been manufactured elsewhere and simply bolted together in the 'country of origin'?
Manufacturers are often very secretive about this; buying bespoke pre-constructed parts from the Far-East and slapping on a Made in Europe sticker to justify a higher price, for instance. Whilst we cannot pretend to know the origin of all devices, we do research the origin of many devices and will tell you our thoughts on any device on the market today. It is our valued opinion from this research and trade knowledge so sometimes we may be wrong.... but not very often!
More importantly than where your laser or aesthetic equipment is from, you need to know:
- Has it got Ce marking?
- Is the CE market legitimate?
Did you know the new EU Medical Device Regulations 2017 (MDR) come in to force in May 2020; requiring any device used on humans to be classed as a “medical device”, so it is vital to not only check the CE registration but check it is tested to Medical CE standards.
Also don’t just take the suppliers word for it, check it yourself. Ask for a copy of the CE certificate and then check with the stated certifying regulatory body - this can often be done online.
If you find they don’t have a legitimate CE mark, you should report them to the MHRA as this is the only way substandard equipment will be banished from the industry.
It is also vital you look at the support being offered going forward with regards to
- Consumable costs
