American Laser Center Complaint - Shady business practices, No refund
ORLANDO, FLORIDA -- I've been undergoing treatment for laser hair removal for 3 YEARS and have had 0% success. In March of 2007 I was told I'd "won" a $300 gift certificate for laser hair removal from American Laser Center. I went to the free consultation, and was offered almost 50% off the normal price for a treatment on the bikini area. Seemed too good to be true, and now I know that it was. The package I purchased was for 6 treatments and I was told that even though I'm strawberry blond, it would work-- guaranteed. Beyond that, I was told, if hair did grow back at any time in the following 2 years after my 6th treatment I could return for further treatment at no cost. But now 3 years later, I have one appointment left in my 2 year guarantee, and I've continued to be treated this entire time. I've seen 0% reduction!!! When I asked for a refund I was told it wasn't company policy (even though that's not specified in ANY of the paperwork I signed), but instead I could continue to be treated for $50/per 30 minute session. I feel completely helpless, and I'm totally out over $1k. I've asked to speak to the Regional Manager, but was told that she would give me the same information. DO NOT PURCHASE SERVICES FROM THIS COMPANY AT ANY LOCATION!
