WILLOW GROVE, PENNSYLVANIA -- The old adage "If it's too good to be true it probably is" definitely applies here. I spent several hours after being approved for a line of credit to try & fix my love handles. The side effects after lasted 8 days. (The pin pricking feeling was constant & seemed tortuous by the 8th day). But if it had helped I wouldn't have minded. But it didn't. When I went back 2 months later for follow-up, they tried to tell me that the before & after pictures showed 25% improvement - which it clearly did not!! I saw absolutely no difference.
But they said to really get the full benefit I'd have to pay more money for an additional round. The pictures were definitely not a side-by-side accurate comparison (not sure how she managed to alter it but the before pictures were closer and the after pictures were further away creating an illusion that there was a difference but I can tell you I look at my body every day and nothing has changed. Then she tried to tell me that it's probably because I weighed 5 pounds more than before the treatment. That it was somehow my fault, that I had gained weight.
(The truth is I have been dieting for the two months and had actually lost 5 pounds according to my doctor's office). The bottom line is I'm in debt, I struggled with discomfort for over a week, and in the end my body is no different than before I started. The only thing I'm more disappointed in an Ideal Image is myself for falling for the scam.
ROBINSON TWP, PENNSYLVANIA -- I spent over $2500 to have my love handles Cool Sculpted! Don't waste your money. My figure is worse than before. The area sculpted was more around my rib cage, not my love handles. I was very specific that my love handles were my problem spot. Now my love handles look bigger than before. She showed me before and after pictures. Which looked the same. She indicated it was because I gained weight. I have actually lost weight since I went. When you go for your consult and they weigh you they don't tell you your weight. I really wish I didn't do this!!!
CORAL GABLES, FLORIDA -- DON'T EVEN THINK of doing this procedure: COOLSCULPTING!!! Not only it cost more than a liposuction, but it should be considered illegal. A rip-off totally. They show you pictures (amazing ones), promises 20% result max - exactly, a MAX of 20% result - (stupid me that bought that minimum percentage and that not even 1% I could see).
For more than $3,500.00 for the stomach, love handles and back fat removal and in 5 months you cannot see ANY result at all. On my follow-up, even the attendant that exam me, said it was ZERO difference. My back fat, it's today worst than it was before. I have a bar of fat showing now. PLEASE, do yourself a favor and don't be stupid as I was.
DON'T DO IT!!!
PLANTATION, FLORIDA -- I went to Ideal Image today and they are running 50% off on laser hair treatments and for a full facial 4500 freaking dollars for 9 treatments. SMH, ridiculous. I had liposuction almost a year ago and only paid $6000 for my flanks, back and abdomen. So if they think I'm going to pay $4500 laser hair removal they have lost their marbles. This was a waste of my time. These people are clearly just money hungry. They don't care about the people. We are coming to you with our personal problems hoping that you guys can help and the only thing you clearly care about is the money.
I went to South Florida Cosmetic Surgery just for a consult last weekend. I like to explore my options just to make sure I will have top-notch service for my dollars and I asked the nurse, "Will your machine remove my hair permanently?" She answered with integrity and told me honestly "You will need blood work done before I can answer that question" and actually explain why she said it. She was sincere and didn't sell me a dream about being hairless unlike Ideal Image. They guaranteed you a lifetime treatment if hair come back but failed to tell me that I will have a co-pay of $150.00 or more.
KNOXVILLE, TENNESSEE -- So like most women, I want to look younger. I searched web-site and found Ideal Image and went for a consult and I got sucked in, hook, line and sinker. It was a very painful process, left my face bruised, sensitive to heat, tingling and just went for my 6 month follow-up and the after picture results look worse than my before pictures.
People beware of the what a scam this is. And no MD on property whatsoever and only a registered nurse, and technicians. I could kick myself. Even the clinician stated she could not see any difference. She knew I was upset, especially after I said what a waste of time and money and what frauds you all are, and she said she would get in touch with her upline manager and see what they could do. I won't hold my breath waiting for that phone call.
WILMINGTON, NORTH CAROLINA -- This is a terrible service and they guilt you into it! I got my face, neck, and lower back done for about $4,000 and I'm so disappointed! In the consultant room I asked them "Will it make my hair go away." They said "Yes 100% and if it doesn't you come back until it's gone away." What they didn't tell me was every time I came back after my basic 9 treatments would be $400.
Then I went to the nurse who does the laser and she said that I'll notice a "hair reduction" but it won't all completely go away! Two totally different things and I was lied to! My hair is still dark and it still grows back maybe a little thinner but that's about it. What crooks they are.
MILWAUKEE, WISCONSIN -- I was treated at Ideal Image and had moderate results. The laser didn't do a good job on my thighs. Also, no one told me that afterward, I would still have hair growth on my legs, but it would be white. I now have long white hair which means I STILL HAVE TO SHAVE. I also have black hair growing on my thighs. After spending thousands of dollars, I am extremely disappointed. I called, and the woman told me that she also has "peach fuzz" and still shaves due to this. She said that she always tells the clients that. Well, no one told me. Had I known this, I would not have spent all that money for mediocre results.
CUYAHOGA FALLS, OHIO -- I had ultherapy on my entire face about 9 months ago. We looked at the pictures before and after ultherapy and there was no difference at all. I first person that looked at it said there might be a small wrinkle on my forehead that looked a little better now. The second person said that she would have to study the pictures to see if there was any improvement. I was hoping for any kind of "noticeable" improvement. I see NO improvement at all. It was very expensive and very painful. I would advise all to stay away from it unless you are a rich masochist.
ASHEVILLE, NORTH CAROLINA -- I went in for consultation for a procedure and price. "Today only you can finance for 1 year without interest. Sign here so I can get your credit score. Sign here so I can set up payments." I left and immediately changed my mind about having the procedure and called to cancel. I am being billed for a procedure I did not have. Is this place a "sham" medical facility? I have NEVER been forced to have a procedure!!! Pay for it even if you immediately cancel with change of mind.
WEST JORDAN, UTAH -- The people at the Ideal Image in West Valley, UT are very friendly and knowledgeable. I received ** injections and I love the results! My nurse's name is Mackenzie and she does such a great job. She is very knowledgeable and makes me feel very comfortable during the procedure. I will definitely be back!
