For spas who would like to offer options for treating minor skin irregularities, such as clogged pores, skin tags, sebaceous hyperplasia, and so forth, specialty equipment can be a good option and an alternative to larger or more expensive types of equipment. Before purchasing specialty equipment for the spa, it is important to consider a number of factors in order to ensure the best option is selected.


When choosing a machine, consider: What is the client downtime after treatments? Is there any pain or discomfort associated with the treatment or healing process?


Evaluate the results the equipment is able to produce. Check out before-and-after photographs posted on the company’s website and thoroughly read reviews from others who have used
the machine.


Another important element to consider is the level of support offered by the company. Some companies offer direct, in-person, in-depth support and training for skin care professionals using the equipment; some offer online training and support; some offer both; and some offer no training or support at all. The more training and support a company offers, the more confident a professional can feel in their specialty equipment and the variety of treatments it can enhance in the spa.


A company with good customer service should be easy to work with and address any concerns, trouble, or questions immediately.


Finally, other factors to think about when purchasing specialty equipment include what kind of warranty is available and what maintenance and insurance requirements exist.
