Buying aesthetic equipment: The risks, and how to mitigate them!

The pressure to reduce capital investment costs can lead clinics into purchasing sub-standard equipment that is not properly serviced or maintained. In addition, the lack of effective regulatory control over distributors importing aesthetic equipment, or clinics purchasing directly from suppliers located abroad, mean that there can be inherent dangers for your clients and for your reputation if you don’t choose wisely. With 18 years’ experience in the capital sales market – both as a supplier and a purchaser, Martyn reveals the different sectors that suppliers operate in alongside providing a practical guide to buying the right equipment from a reputable supplier.

New medical device regulations – What do they mean for the aesthetic industry?

26th May 2020 - does this date mean anything to you? The Medical Device Regulations (MDR), which came into effect on 25th May 2017, and replaces the Medical Device Directive (MDD) fully applies from this date. This means that some products will become regulated under medical device legislation for the first time - including dermal fillers, threads, equipment intended to be used to reduce, remove or destroy fat, plus lasers and intense pulsed light devices for skin resurfacing, tattoo or hair removal and other skin treatments. Learn how this will affect the aesthetic marketplace and how it might make a difference to you and your clinic.
