Moonee Valley Crime Investigation Unit detectives are appealing for information following a burglary in Ascot Vale last month, Victoria Police say.
Investigators believe unknown offenders attended a store on Union Road between 8pm on Tuesday 18 October and 8am on Wednesday 19 October.
The burglars gained access to the store and stole a Fastlux IPL machine which is a skin surface treatment system.
The machine needs to be operated by a qualified beauty technician.
Police have released an image of a similar machine in the hopes someone may recognise it or have information on its current whereabouts.
Anyone with any information on the burglary is urged to contact Crime Stoppers.
