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 also 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. Sharon provides case examples where indemnity claims were not supported by insurers and gives guidance regarding reducing risk in purchasing aesthetic equipment.
