Equipment purchases are an investment in the future of your business. Research what is trending in industry publications and at trade shows; and talk with colleagues and trusted vendors with whom you already do business. Survey your clients and do your homework, remembering that not all trends are a good fit for your business.

Hair removal is a multibillion dollar business, and the best bet to stay current and competitive is with a light-based hair removal system. However, finding a cost-effective system that delivers first-class results without compromise—one that treats all skin types quickly, safely and effectively—is not as easy as it seems. Make sure to do your research to purchase the right hair removal equipment for your facility.
