My Vivace RF Microneedling System was $134,000 less than my fractional 1540nm Palomar System ($10,000 less than just the 1540 handpiece and tips)!
My Palomar 1540 XF handpiece was $60,000
My Fractional 1540 XD tip was an additional $15,000
My Fractional 1540 15mm tip was an additional $10,0000
This doesn’t include the Palomar/Cynosure Icon platform machine to hook it into though which I paid an additional $119,000 MSRP. If you want the 1540 fractional HP and all three tips and the Icon to use them on, it will cost you $204,000 MSRP. Oh and remember, you can’t resell it without the buyer paying recertification fees basically making it less expensive for a buyer to purchase a new system instead of your system.
Ok so let’s start doing a comparison between owning a Vivace and owning a 1540 nm System:
Due to Groupon, competition and saturation of clinicians offering fractional laser treatments, I am only able to charge $400 per 1540 fractional laser treatment (back in “the day”, I charged $700.)
If we divide the cost of the Cynosure/Palomar Icon with the handpieces ($204,000) by $400 per treatment (drumroll please)…..
….it will take you 510 treatments to pay off the 1540 system WITHOUT factoring interest on $204k!
Okay, so now let’s see how much simple interest there is on $210,000 over 60 months at a favorable 5% interest rate = $52,500!
So the total cost of my 1540 system with interest is $262,500….
….which will take 656 1540 treatments to pay off!
But we are not done yet. Per Cynosure, my Palomar 1540nm handpiece
