American Laser Complaint - Avoid American Laser Centers
SKOKIE, ILLINOIS -- I went to American Laser Center in Skokie Illinois. I spoke with the manager and she killed me with kindness. Initially, she said because I waited, she gave me a great discount. I went to the center intending to ask about facial hair removal. However, somehow she convinved me to obtain a Microderm, so I got the package of hair removal and microdermbrasion for $1500. I was delighted because according to the manager, the original price was close to $4000 (Off course, only a lie). I'm telling you, the manager that I spoke with was just a two-face. She acts like she's your best friend, but the only thing they care about at this facility is the money that you give them, that's it.
Anyways, when I got the second microdermbrasion, the lady convinced me to buy a "Photo Facial" so again due to my gullibility, I signed up for it and charged an additional $1000 on the credit card plan. However, I came back home and did some research, and I found out that I got ripped off, and indeed I did get ripped off. I went back the next day to cancel it, and they told me they were going to charge me $300 for cancellation fees. Guess, what, they did change me the $300 for canceling my "Photo Facial".
Additionally, right after I got the second treatment for Microdermobraions, I started to flare very badly. I guess it's because I went to Mexico around that time, and I had a bad tan. However, the people didn't warn me about the consequences, and I only got two applicatoins of Microdermbrasion, and my faced is badly damaged now, it's basically full of acne. It's also getting worse day by day. In fact, I will start on Acutene in about three weeks.
The only thing that I asked from American Laser Center is to give me a full refund for "Photo Facial" and not charge me the $300. Of course, that did not happened. I even went to the center and showed how irritated my skin was, but they still did't give a damb. I also gave them my doctor's note, yet they charged the additional $300. They ruined my skin, but I had to pay addionational $300, pretty bad huh!
My package was for $1500, now I have to pay $1800 altogether. I have to say, I don't trust this company at all. They do not care about the well-being of their patients. The company only cares about how much money you give them. It's based upon deception and lie. Even their contract indirectly tells you that you may not get the results that you want.
Please avoid American Laser Center. I can't even exit the situation that I'm in. I'm basically stuck. The only thing that I did is damage my skin. Rememeber, I have to use one of the strongest acne medicine, Acutene, and deal with the side effects because of American Laser. I haven't even gotten an apology from the manager or the customer service center.
If you're ever thinking about doing any simple cosmetic procedures, go to the doctor instead. The doctor may charge more than this company, but you get quality work, and you won't be treated like a number or a contract. At least, the doctor won't deceive you and disappoint you the way this company would. I seriously mean this. I warned all of my friends, and warn anyone who's reading this, American Laser is the worst company that I came across. It has no regard for its cusotmer, none whatsover, the only thing it cares about is the sales and the money that it deceivebly receives from its victims not customer.
It's also shemeful and sad that they carry the label "American" Laser. American businesses do not operate the way this company does. Perhaps Nigerian corporations operate the way American Laser does. This company does not represent America in any shape or form. It does not deserve the title it carries. It's truly conniving and deceptive.
AVOID American Laser!!!
