Salons can ensure their clients walk out of their business happy by investing in their tools and equipment. This doesn’t necessarily mean buying the most expensive products and supplies in the market, though. With products that get the job done quicker and more effectively, you can give your customers faster and ultimately better beauty treatments and services.
So what are some professional laser hair removal machines to add to your current salon equipment? Some good brands are SharpLight Omnimax S3, Zyyini Professional Hair Removal Machine, Cynosure Vectus Laser, Alma Soprano Ice Platinum, and Candela elōs Plus. These professional laser hair removal machines can help your business a lot, but you have to first weigh their pros and cons to know which one is right for you.
Price: Price available upon request. According to third-party medical websites, the Omnimax S3 starts at $75,000 and can go as high as $125,000, depending on the handpieces and shot count.
SharpLight specializes in cutting-edge aesthetic devices, and their Omnimax S3 is a unit you’ll want to consider if you’re a salon or med spa with the intention of scaling or expanding your business and want flexible equipment that can provide multiple kinds of laser services for your clients. So, instead of investing in multiple laser machines for your salon or med spa, your staff can learn to use the Omnimax S3 for various treatments.
With the Omnimax S3, you can provide the following services:
|Safe for all hair and skin types. Some laser products aren’t suitable for certain skin colors and skin types. SharpLight claims the Omnimax S3 can provide safe treatment and effective results.Reduce the learning curve. Rather than having your staff learn multiple types of machines for different services, they can learn how to use the Omnimax S3 for all their services. The Omnimax S3 also has an intuitive user interface, making it fairly easy to use.Powerful machine for effective results. Aside from laser hair removal, the Omnimax S3 also includes dynamic pulse control, radio frequency, and VeraDerm technology. This can improve your customer experience by providing better results with less pain and minimal downtime.||Most expensive laser machine on this list. If hair removal is the only laser service your salon is offering, it might be more practical to get another laser machine.Radio frequency not cleared for sale in the US. SharpLight’s radio frequency technology isn’t cleared for sale in the United States and may be unavailable if you’re opening a business in the US.Difficult to move. Compared to smaller hair removal machines, the Omnimax S3 can be difficult to move around your salon.|
This multi-functional laser machine on Amazon can help you provide multiple beauty treatments. Aside from whole-body laser hair removal, you can use it to remove freckles, promote skin rejuvenation, and even skin tone. Although smaller and cheaper than the other models on this list, it’s still powerful enough to give a strong light pulse energy to provide an effective service that can leave your customers satisfied. It might be the best option for smaller salons trying out professional laser hair removal services before investing in more heavy-duty units.
|Innovative cooling system. This unit comes with a brand new cooling system that uses water for air circulation, allowing your unit to work longer.Powerful but safe. The machine produces a strong light pulse energy but can be safely used for a 30-minute procedure without any damage to the skin.Includes a high-power E light handle. This helps to reduce the common effects of strong light (which is generally the cause of skin discoloration for clients with darker skin tones when using lasers), which can avoid skin discoloration.||Requires water to operate. You need to make sure there is enough distilled water in the machine before operation to prevent overheating.May not be suitable for longer services. The product claims operation can take up to 30 minutes, which may not be enough time to provide multiple services or full-body laser hair removal.Low Amazon rating. If you depend on user reviews, you might be put off by the product’s low one star rating. Given it’s relatively low cost and low ratings, medium to large businesses may want to stick with professional laser hair removal machines made by more well-known aesthetic brands.|
Price: Price available upon request, used units available at third-party websites ranging from $28,000 to $39,000.
Cynosure’s Vectus Laser offers power, reliability, speed, and efficiency. Its unique selling feature is the unit’s ability to cover a high volume of laser hair removal, so areas like your client’s back, chest, and legs take less time to cover. This means your clients spend less time at your salon for results that take much longer to cover, but with the same level of quality as other high-end hair laser removal machines.
|Includes Cynosure’s proprietary Skintel Melanin Reader. To prevent skin discoloration from laser treatment, the Vectus Laser comes with a melanin reader that can accurately assess your client’s skin type and treatment parameters. It can then adjust the unit’s settings to prevent discoloration based on the amount of melanin in the client’s skin.Advanced Contact Cooling Technology. Laser hair removal can cause minimal pain and discomfort to patients. The Vectus Laser provides Advanced Contact Cooling technology throughout the treatment to protect your client’s skin, reduce discomfort, and provide a better experience.Covers more area uniformly. Its high-speed laser and wider coverage area can treat larger areas in less time. Laser hair removal can take around an hour, but the larger coverage can treat clients’ skin in a fraction of that time.||Requires Cynosure laser safety eyewear. Unlike other laser hair removal machines that can use eyewear from any provider, Cynosure recommends that everyone in the room during treatment wears the eyewear they provide along with the unit. This is because their eyewear is specific to the wavelength of light the Vectus Laser produces. You can use other eyewear, but they have to meet the exact same specifications listed on Cynosure’s lenses and frames.Doesn’t treat other salon or med spa services. For other laser-related treatments, you’ll need to purchase additional equipment.Still requires additional treatment. Although its Photon Recycling technology maximizes the laser’s effects on your client’s results, clients will still need multiple sessions for their hair to thin and eventually disappear.|
Price: Price available upon request, prices from vendors can range from $60,350 to $72,000.
The Alma Soprano Ice Platinum uses “trio clustered diode technology” – three wavelengths that each target a specific part around the hair follicle without damaging the skin and other tissues around the skin:
With the three wavelengths combined, you can give your clients a virtually painless and safe experience.
|Features SHR by Alma Soprano. Alma Soprano’s proprietary hair removal method, SHR, works by heating the dermis to damage hair follicles without damaging the surrounding tissue. This can reduce the pain and discomfort clients experience during and after their treatment.Unit designed for all skin types and skin tones. Its three laser wavelengths and effective heating method can ensure that hair removal is safe for all skin types.Targets the bulge, bulb, and papilla. Each of its three wavelengths targets the different parts of a hair follicle, making it weaker and thinner more effectively rather than just targeting a general area.||Doesn’t treat other salon or med-spa services. This will give your staff a bigger learning curve when training to provide services with multiple equipment. Still requires additional treatment. Although a powerful unit, the Alma Soprano Ice Platinum will still need to give clients multiple sessions for their hair to thin and eventually disappear.Limited accessories. Unlike other units that provide multiple accessories to improve your service and performance, the Alma Soprano Ice Platinum only comes with a Facial TIP to reach hard-to-reach areas.|
Price: Price available upon request. Candela offers a Certified Pre-Owned program where you can buy used units while still receiving Candela’s after-sales service. For third-party vendors, used units can range from $16,500 to $39,000.
The Candela elōs Plus is designed to be your salon’s very own aesthetic workstation. The unit can provide your clients the following services and treatments:
Combining optical and radio frequency energies, the elōs Plus provides comfortable treatments that still provides a deeper penetration of heat that requires only moderate skin heating to show results.
|Maximum comfort for clients. Many of the unit’s features focus on providing clients with a comfortable procedure that yields impressive results. The unit maximizes thermal profiles efficiently, providing better penetration and results without higher temperatures. There is also a sapphire contact for cooling.Multiple treatments in one session. The elōs Plus trinity Plus protocol, combined with the multiple handpieces provided with the unit, allows users to get laser treatments for multiple problem areas in one session.Built for ease of use. This includes Plug & Play software upgrades, multiple handpieces, and an intuitive user interface that can be customized to fit your salon’s services.||No mention of safety measures for all skin types. The elōs Plus caters to a wide range of skin types and can treat those with lower optical absorption (those with light hair types), but it lists no features that reduce the risk of discoloration for clients with darker skin tones and dark hair color.Not practical for all salons. If your salon doesn’t offer other services that require lasers, it might be more practical to get professional laser machines that focus on hair removal.Requires multiple treatments. Candela estimates permanent hair reduction after at least three treatments.|
