Laser Maintenance & Repair 101

Let’s face it… medical lasers are expensive and when your laser is out of service, you lose money. So, when you have this equipment as part of your medspa’s inventory, it’s important to conduct routine maintenance to extend the life and functionality of your laser.

Most lasers have water circulating through the system and require regular changing, as well as filters and cleaning of internals. If you skip regular maintenance or neglect changing parts that should be replaced after a certain time of usage, it may avoid warranties or cause extended damage that could have been avoided.

Manufacturers suggest servicing your laser every six months, but wear and tear is determined by use. If you’re a high-volume facility using your laser daily, service twice a year is the minimum amount.  Some of the most common preventative maintenance services include:

  • Full optical alignment and power meter calibration
  • Gas system calibration, if required
  • Cooling system check
  • High voltage calibration
  • Optical inspection and cleaning
  • Full operational check of the laser
  • Mechanical durability check
  • Accessory inspection
  • Factory-specified power output verification
  • Laser operating mode review and calibration

In the event of a laser malfunction, you’re likely to need a replacement part or to have to repair the laser’s arm.  Therefore, we recommend that you create a list of service providers prior to experiencing an issue, so you can get your equipment fixed as soon as possible.
