The UK’s first ‘one stop shop’ for supplying the rapidly-growing market in aesthetic laser technology, Laseraid, has marked a successful first 12 months of trading with laser devices with a total value of £4.5m now in market.
Since its launch in autumn 2021 with the backing of private investors and Australian market leader Laseraid, providing a multi-million war chest for acquisition, the business has met demand from current and aspiring aesthetic clinic owners throughout the UK for cost-effective and reliable access to industry-leading laser devices.
Laseraid’s unique all-inclusive subscription model brings together the rental of the machine, servicing costs, training and marketing into a single fixed monthly payment. This enables new clinics to offer a wide choice of the most technically advanced aesthetics devices from their first day of opening.
Headquartered in Borehamwood, near London, where it has a showroom, training academy and service centre, Laseraid also opened a second base in the north last year, located in Leeds. These facilities also include a full workshop for maintenance and repairs in addition to a showroom and training centre. Over the last year, the team has grown from eight to more than 20 people including service technicians, trainers, sales consultants and customer service staff located across the UK.
“The Laseraid offering has been specifically designed to help clinics to try a variety of treatments and devices, introduce new ideas to their customers, and to help them scale up quickly, without the capital cost or lengthy financial commitments of purchasing machines,” explains Jamel Hussain, commercial director of Laseraid.
“Our model is proving extremely popular as it gives clinics maximum flexibility and growth potential; taking the pressure off clinic owners, leaving them more time to focus on running their business and providing the best service to their clients.
“Already, we have built a strong profile and reputation within the dynamic UK market as a trusted supplier, able to provide an extensive range of aesthetic laser devices from all of the premium brands. In our first year of trading in the UK, we have exceeded all our targets and are now working with over 150 high-quality clinics, from Falkirk in Scotland, to London and down to Portsmouth on the South coast.”
In addition to providing access to premium laser devices from many of the industry’s leading brands, Laseraid’s subscription model also offers complete servicing and support, plus initial and ongoing training as well as monthly clinic supplies credit towards stocking up clinic supplies.
Guy Bunn, COO of Laseraid, adds: “With a strong heritage as a market-leader in Australia, Laseraid has brought its expertise to the developing UK aesthetics sector, offering a revolutionary package which enables clinics to expand quickly and grow to their full potential. Having got our business off to a flying start here, there are exciting times ahead as we continue to support premium clinic operators and drive the industry forward.”
