American Laser Centers Compliment - American Laser Centers. "Are you Kidding me, why so many bad reviews?"
SANTA MONICA, CALIFORNIA -- I read a review on here about negotiating prices. My sister and I visited the same American Laser Center at different times. We do not share the same last name, so there was no way for the nurse or manager to distinguish this during our consultations. I had been wanting laser hair removal for 4 years. I waited for years, because where ever I had gone, Laser Hair Removal was costly. My girlfriend who had it done 4 years ago kept telling me that my wax appts and boxes of $16 'pink curved' razors were adding up and the cost was getting expensive. Overtime, I'm wasting more $$ by not getting laser hair reduction. I'm going to shave anyway, I might as well invest in something that will make shaving easier. I shave once a week and MY SISTER shaves ONCE a MONTH! That's less money on waxes and plastic rusty razors.
It got rid of my ingrown hair! I had chunks ingrown hair under my arms and legs. My legs look so much softer and my armpits look pretty. I feel sexier. I'm going to try my bikini next. They had a one time only 60%. I didn't make the cut off time so they gave me $100 + 19.8% off and 2 small mini treatments. Not as good as the 60%, but I still got a deal and in a much better position to invest in something for myself. It was either this or a breast augmentation. Really. Well, my hair reduction is at 75-80% and I'm on my 11th treatment. That's almost 2 yrs of treatments. It's pretty good, because I was VERY hairy. I think I'm going to continue on with my free appts. You get free touchups up to 2 yrs from your start date.
I love this laser center. I used to go to younique, but I never saw any results. Their initial package didn't sound as promising as American Laser Centers. There were a lot of "what if's" when I went into all my appts. I'd rather sign up for everything so that each appt is cheaper. American Laser Centers is like the Costco with safe, well trusted staff. The representative was very helpful.
I asked the representative if this was true. She told me that with every client who seeks laser hair removal, they always feel as though waxing and shaving is cheaper. However, according to her calculations of what I had been spending each month, I was throwing my money down the drain. I told her that I spent about $40/month on waxing and $13-$15 every 2 months on a box of good razors. It ended up coming to $550 a year, for what I was spending on wax treatments and razors. I saw that in 2 years I would be spending about $1100 on waxing and razors, and I would have to continue paying this expense for the rest of my life. I thought, what if I invested $2500 in laser hair removal? It was clear that laser hair removal would save me thousands over time, but does it work? $2500,$200, $30... much of what you get can be paid through payments. There is no interest for a yr. The nurse and manager were honest and experienced. They both told me that with laser hair removal, it is a process to destroy the hair follicle in every cycle or phase. I love my legs and underarms! I can't stop referring people to American Laser Centers. The company gives me $250 for every referral. I got $700. It was mailed as a check that was issued to 'cash'. I cashed it and got CASH!!! This is for real. I questioned this company before because of all the reviews about them. Then I realized how many bad reviews were up about my company. I work for Kaiser and I'm a patient. The people who complain on the internet were probably all the managers and nurses who were terminated. One nurse told me that if the manager is not nice and firm at the same time, they will be let go. I heard that customers try to take advantage of the managers then the business starts to hurt and the manager is to blame. PEOPLE please be fair so that we can continue our treatments. This company makes smart decisions to stay in business. All the managers who I have seen have been fine.
Back to negotiating prices. Wow... huge tangent! My sister had
less hair so she only did her lower legs. She paid $180 for each appt. I did lower legs with patches done on my thighs. I paid $199 per appt. I paid a little extra for the small patches. I would have paid $210 per whole leg appt, but I decided not to. My payments through their monthly no int plan made it really affordable. I pay $36 as my min payment per month.
