Simplicity Laser's Transition to Zimmer MedizinSystems Electric Cryotherapy - WEB & CC_RW

Simplicity Laser, a leading company specializing in laser hair removal treatments, has always been at the forefront of adopting state-of-the-art technologies to enhance client comfort and safety. One significant shift in the industry has been the transition from nitrogen-based to electric cryotherapy in conjunction with laser and other aesthetic procedures. Zimmer MedizinSystems, a brand known for delivering sub-zero temperatures as low as -30 degrees Celsius to the treatment area, is at the helm of this evolution. A to Z News had the opportunity to delve deep into this transition with Leeon Jeffs, the Vice President of Simplicity Laser, shedding light on its benefits and broader implications.

Since making the switch to Zimmer MedizinSystems cryotherapy devices at all of its locations in 2017, Simplicity Laser has observed notable advantages. “We’ve saved hundreds of thousands of dollars over six years from the business decision to use the Zimmer [MedizinSystems] Cryo,” Jeffs commented. Such significant cost savings are an outcome of moving away from the recurring expenses associated with nitrogen-based cryotherapy consumables.

Another crucial advantage of Zimmer MedizinSystems’ cryotherapy devices, as discussed during the interview, is the ability for continuous cooling. This feature provides patients with a respite from the heat and discomfort of laser procedures. Unlike nitrogen-based methods, which are limited to spraying during laser pulsing, the continuous cold air approach allows for breaks during the procedure. This not only ensures enhanced safety, reducing the risk of thermal injuries, but also offers a more comfortable experience for clients. The treatment can resume seamlessly whenever the client is prepared.

The discussion further revealed that laser treatment clients are showing a preference for the Zimmer MedizinSystems technology. Jeffs stressed the paramount role the devices play in attracting clients to Simplicity Laser. Clients are choosing Simplicity Laser because they recognize the superior technology it offers compared to competitors. He added, “I’m just looking at how we can get more! We want to expand… So I’ll have a Cryo 6 at each one of those locations or a Cryo 7 as we as we add those.” The Zimmer devices not only elevate the client experience but also significantly contribute to the brand reputation of Simplicity Laser.

Jeffs also touched upon the commendable customer service and reliability of Zimmer MedizinSystems. Their responsiveness and brand integrity align perfectly with the high standards set by Simplicity Laser for both their employees and their vendors.

Concluding the conversation, the overall sentiment was clear: Zimmer MedizinSystems has carved out a niche for itself in the aesthetic industry with its electric cryotherapy devices. Mr. Jeffs’ endorsement of the benefits, ranging from significant cost savings to enhanced client comfort and safety, underscores the advantages of transitioning from nitrogen-based systems. As Leeon Jeffs puts it, “I’m a very happy customer. I really appreciate what Zimmer [MedizinSytems] has done for our brand. I love what they’ve done for our customer, and I plan to be a happy customer of Zimmer [MedizinSystems] for a long time.” As businesses like Simplicity Laser continue to place their trust in the brand and electric technology, it’s becoming clear that this is setting the new standard for the aesthetic industry’s future.
