Check out Ari's Candela laser review. Know the pros and cons and why it is among the top reommended brand for cosmetic lasers.
Syneron Medical Ltd. is now the owner of Candela lasers. They also still manufacture Syneron machines as well. Candela lasers are extremely popular and used in more than 85 countries around the world.
Candela lasers work for the following applications:
- Body contouring
- Hair Removal
- Wrinkle reduction
- Skin rejuvenation
- Acne treatments
- Leg veins
- Vascular anomalies
- Sun-damaged skin
- Cellulite reduction
Candela lasers are one of my top recommendations. These lasers in particular are a huge hit on the secondary models. Regardless of whether you buy an older model or a newer one, you are likely to be quite pleased with Candela.
One of the reasons that so many customers are opting for Candela machines on the second hand market is that they can be repaired quickly and easily. Also technicians working on your laser can buy and use brand new parts when they make repairs. That means that we will immediately be able to get access to any parts that are needed.
It gets even better. Candela lasers require less servicing. This means that in general things are far less likely to go wrong.
Many clients also love the fact that this machine uses cryogen. Keep in mind that after you treat about 7 to 10 complete bodies, you will need a new canister – the cost is only about $30. However, if you work in a busy practice, this charge can easily add up to $20,000 a year. Of course, if you are spending that kind of money, you are treating many patients and will readily have the income to support the cryogen costs.
Who is Happiest with the Candela Brand?
All of our clients have been extremely happy with Candela machines. We hear doctors and patients both comment that it is the best laser on the market today. Plus, it is extremely versatile and will easily go from hair removal to vein treatment. So it is great for clinics and practitioners who are doing a wide variety of treatments.
What Do You Need To Know Before You Purchase a Candela?
When you work with a company that has integrity, you’ll know that you are getting a high quality Candela machine. For example, we handle all our due diligence before we provide lasers to our customers. Of course, there is no bluebook that tells you the value of a Candela laser. But when you compare the costs of used machines to those of new lasers, it will quickly become obvious why so many people are turning to the second hand market to buy Candelas.
The most frequent repair we see on the Candela is that its flash lamps need to be replaced. You can consider this to be just like needing a tune-up after a certain amount of miles.
As stated above, the costs for cryogen can add up if you are performing a lot of treatments. However, most practitioners just consider this a cost of doing business.
