Laser Lipo Training and Machines
Laser Lipo Training – The Good, the Bad and the Ugly side to it
Laser Lipo Training is such an easy treatment, so easy that it can almost be self taught. If you think about it, it is just strapping pads onto the body. How hard can it really be? The hard part is not the actual treatment itself, but it is the knowledge, the qualification, the insurance, the support and the contraindications.
If not trained correctly, results achieved will not be 100% no matter how expensive or great the machine is. Of course we all know that a good machine will achieve 80% of the result, but that extra 20% is what it takes to make your customer completely satisfied, and in return more recommendations and future business.
So to be successful in this business, you have to have a great machine, support and great knowledge about the treatment. Knowledge, which only an experienced trainer can pass down to you.
Time and time again, we’ve seen people buying machines that simply give minimal to no results. These types of machines really bring down the industry and give everyone a bad name.
When buying a machine, we need to understand why it is a good machine. Is it the power? Is it the pads? Is it endorsed by celebrities or is it just a brand name? The truth is, none of these points matter if they are falsely advertised. We find many smaller companies just advertise anything without any clinical trials or extensive research.
The power is only required to be adequate and the machine does not have to be celebrity endorsed to give superior results. A good machine has to have powerful pads with individual CPUs for each pad, and most importantly, the type of laser components being used for the machine itself needs to be of high quality. Of course other factors such as an intuitive user interface, design and the manufacturing process plays a huge part too.
How do the pads of the AW3 system differ?
The Powerful 130MW Japanese Mitsubishi Diode Laser is one of the most powerful and highest quality made laser diodes in the world. Fake LED lights or unbranded 5MW-15MW lasers cannot compare when it comes to customer’s results. When we talk about world class, Mitsubishi is a household name for laser and electronics since 1870. AW3’s innovative manufacturing process sources components from leading brands around the world to produce the finest system.
Recently we had a few customers who were getting bad results with some other machines that they had already bought. We decided to part exchange 6 of the AW3 machines so we can start a comparison project in our factory. Not to our surprise at all, 3 machines bought from auction/import sites were LEDs instead of Lasers as advertised.
2 machines were bought from local trade shows, which uses lasers but an in-house built type, which does not have the manufacturing capability compared to specialist diode makers, therefore giving poor results. These 2 local machines were in fact being made from the same factory. They were almost exactly the same inside. The prices differed hugely because they were being supplied by 2 completely different distributors under 2 different brand names.
Finally one machine you could say that it is very similar to the AW3 machine, but it’s a Chinese copy. It looked the similar, felt the same and even the spec description on the user manual was almost the same. This particular machine was very interesting, although it does genuinely use Japanese Mitsubishi lasers; it was not giving the same results? We do not want to bore you with the laws of physics that make certain components bind together well, whilst others won’t, no matter how powerful and expensive the components are. This company was failing to correctly manufacture their machine which led to poor results.
It is important to buy and train from a reputable manufacturer with extensive research and development. Don’t buy into a machine, buy into the company, the training and the business itself. Looking at a machine’s spec sheet is not enough and can sometimes be incorrect; feel the machine and the company as a whole. A reputable company would never deceive, give out false information and are always willing to give aftercare support without hesitation. Look out for transparency such as pricing, where the factory is based and a clear website literature. All literature must be available for all members of the public to view anytime without any hidden facts or salesman tactics.
A good laser lipo training course is one thing; a good laser lipo brand is another. Combine these 2 together will make a great business, a business that will grow for the long term.
