Sleek MedSpa Complaint - Mesotherapy Does Not Work

Review by whernan77 on 2008-03-03
BURLINGTON, MASSACHUSETTS -- I went in to Sleek Medspa for a free consultation/analysis. They said they could help me with abdominal fat with mesotherapy injections as an alternative to liposuction. I have had six treatments and now almost 8 months later, I have had no progress or changes. I have however, changed my diet and exercise regimen, but the belly fat is still there. I should have known to walk out of there when they showed me a picture of Britney Spears, citing she was also using mesotherapy.

I have since read that these injections break up the fat, but the fat has no where to go, so now I have soft fat. Lovely, isn't it?

I have also been ripped off by Sleek Medspa in Burlington, MA. I was promised complete hair removal for my very expensive package of 6 visits. At my last visit I still had no results - They told me to buy another package! I told them I would not pay another cent and expected to see promised results for the money I already spent...they let me have 6 more treatments. A year later and still no results I am planning a small claims case. I suggest anyone else who's been scammed do the same. If no one speaks up, businesses get away with millions of our hard earned dollars.

Hey Andy, if you are truly sorry then why don't you buy Whernie, a lifetime membership to a FITNESS CENTER?! A fitness coach? Perhaps a nutritionist?

I too went to Sleek Medspa Burlington back in October for a consultation. I was deciding between Mesotherapy and Liposuction on my stomach. I have had the mesotherapy done before on the back of my legs and butt at a certified Doctor in Cherry Hill, NJ with excellent results. I even did a Channel 10 News spot for his office showing my results. So now that I am in my mid-30's was looking for help with some abdominal fat. The consultant at Sleek MedSpa told me the prices of both options, but that the mesotherapy would cover my entire stomach for $500 less than the liposuction which would not cover as much area. I weighed my option of more fat being taken care of with the pain of needles; opting for the Mesotherapy. I have had 10 sessions (once a week) alternating lower and upper abdomen and my stomach is EXACTLY the same as it was when I started. Being that I have had this done before with excellent results; I am doubtful of the concoction used by Sleek MedSpa. I am also concerned with the amount of injections they allow per session. I do not believe they are enough to do the job. I have 2 sessions remaining and am not convinced in those 2 sessions I will suddenly see miraculous results. I feel ripped off as I have had previous experience with my body reacting well to this treatment. I am 5'5" and 135 pounds...the mesotherapy should have worked. I will be bringing this to Sleek Medspa's management on my next visit and expect a full refund!
