3 Ways to Optimize Your Aesthetic Laser Purchase Before the End of the Year

As the year comes to a close, it's essential to analyze your aesthetic clinic's performance to determine how you can continue to invest in your business.

By revisiting ways to optimize business operations, aesthetic clinic owners have also afforded themselves the bandwidth to search for ways to stay competitive (and profitable) in their ever-changing markets. For many, this meant investing in new technology and introducing new services to their loyal customer base.

3 Mistakes Buyers Make When Purchasing a Laser Tattoo Removal Device

There are many common financial transactions or loans that most Americans apply for and receive throughout our lives. The two most common financial transactions are vehicles (cars, vans, boats, motorhomes, etc.) and residential housing. As these are the two most common large financial transactions that most consumers are familiar with, we typically assume that the financial structure, banks that provide the loans, and payment arrangements are the same for every financial transaction. While that may be true in terms of down payments, credit scores, principal, and interest rates, not every loan is the same. When getting a loan for an aesthetic device, it's important to remember that all loans are not created or structured the same. 

Because many consumers have a misconception that all loans are the same, they're more prone to making a mistake when purchasing a new or pre-owned tattoo removal laser or aesthetic device. To simplify financing and buying a new aesthetic laser, we put together some information on common mistakes people make when investing in capital equipment like aesthetic lasers.

Deduct Your Tattoo Removal Laser: All About Section 179

Unless you are an experienced business owner that has previously purchased capital equipment, you may have never heard of Section 179.

The Section 179 deduction is an Internal Revenue Service (IRS) tax code that allows medical and aesthetic businesses the opportunity to deduct the total cost of qualified equipment and is designed to encourage small business owners to continue investing in growing their business.

Since a laser is the main capital equipment for aesthetic practices, virtually all aesthetic businesses qualify for this tax code. While Section 179 isn't explicitly written for aesthetic businesses, it does apply to the industry. 

If you currently run a business – a physician practice, a medical spa, or even a tattoo shop – the Section 179 deduction can save you thousands on your next tax bill.
