"At the moment of the consultation, the provider has to be honest and tell the truth about what to expect about the treatment, not to lie to the client to sale some service. and at the end the only result obtained is to have a client dissapointed and frustrated." - Submitted by Bethzada R. of Maricopa, AZ

"I was not satisfied for the treatment I received, I feel my rosacea worsened with the differant creams and treatments I used...The staff was extremely nice and tried their best to help with choosing the right treatments for my skin disorder...but although it did not work...I am going to go speak with the Braintree office to see if I can be reimbursed for the treatments that I didn't use...I hope they will cooperate with me in this dispute." - Submitted by Jessica F. of Weymouth, MA

"I purchase the package that included IPL Photo Facial and Microdermabrasion.
I've never experience with IPL Photo Facial, its pain and I ask for numbing cream the staff refuses don’t want to give it to me. Before I purchase the package treatments, I should do some homework. But I’d make mistake. After the first IPL treatment I want to cancel it but they don’t want to refund my money, so I don’t have a choice to keep the package, today, I looked at the mirror, I don’t see much different from before and after. I wouldn’t refer any friend come to American Laser. As I said, this is my mistake

"I bought a series of IPL and microdermabrasions and chemical peel.
I rotate thru these 3 procedures every 2 weeks...
Grace is a great manger and seems very caring and knowledgeable of the products and procedures.
the cost was a good value for the money but I like to see the same practitioner every time instead of a new person every time. This request was taken into consideration and placed in my file.
I only had 1 microdermabrasion that was not well done and the tech did not check what tip or settings I had been using and the whole experience was unpleasant and left my face red and irritated. However to Grace's credit, she remedied the situation and credited me with another treatment and made sure I did not have that tech again." - Submitted by Maggie K. of Houston, TX

"Staff is great. Booked 5 IPL's. 1st one was apparently too strong, and I've had nasty red stripes on my chest since!! 4 extremely important events this month, and even though they kept trying to correct the stripes/burns, it is still horrifically evident. Everyone keeps asking me what happened. My business partner wants me to sue. I just want it remedied . It's embarrassing." - Submitted by Lori H. of Las Vegas, NV

"Still ongoing...I have two more appointments scheduled. I'm a little worried that it may not be working for me which makes me very sad! I used my income tax return to pay for this procedure with high hopes that it would work for me but I'm not seeing the results I expected. I have alot of sun spots on my neck area and some spots on my face that are still there! I'm hoping the next two treatments will do it..." - Submitted by Stacey S. of San Jose, CA

"I purchased a package of 5 ea photo/ 5 ea dermabrasion.
I have had very good results with previous hair removal laser treatments with another company and expected to have good results with you. I am disappointed with my results. Main concerns were broken blood vessels, enlarged pores on nose,dark spots and redness on sides of my neck. Very little results with the blood vessels, dark spots & pores have diminished very little. Skin tone on neck is more even, though. I think that my problem areas should have been treated first and then gone over the entire face and I may have had better results. Some technical problems with the lasers and dermabrasion machine on several occasions. The technicians were very nice, especially Heidi!!" - Submitted by Laura U. of Huntington Beach, CA

"I have some red discolored areas on my nose due to incompetent laser procedures I had in the past which damaged my skin. During the course of my photo facial sessions with your company my areas of discoloration may have diminished somewhat. I think your photo facial is great and did what it is supposed to do as far as that procedure is concerned but for my condition I'm thinking I may need to undergo a different type of procedure to resolve my particular condition. I don't think you need to do anything to improve. I just think I may need to consult a cosmetic dermatologist to remedy my particular issue. I have one more session next week which is my 3rd and final session. I think and I'm hoping it may help a little more, but I'm also thinking I may need more sessions if it does start to work. However, at this time I'm not financially able to do more b/c of the cost of 3 sessions at $1000 is expensive for me." - Submitted by Chris V. of Corpus Christi, TX

"Elaina is the nice lady that helped me make my decision although I was won over minutes after we had immersed in the consultation. Nice setting, wait time is never longer than twenty minutes. Everyone there is always friendly and actaully seems like they want to be there. It seemed as if my general welfare was in actual interest of the company. I would definately suggest this company to my companions and to you. " - Submitted by Mariana B. of Fair Oaks, CA

"the staff is great, but the procedure did not meet my expectations. It did not remove the imperfections i wanted, where at another place with the same laser they were successful. However that place is no longer in business, Which brought me to your office. I have not completed my sessions and i feel i will have to find a new laser treatment facility. I very disappointed and feel i wasted $1700. I did let the staff know i was disappointed. They tried to hit me with the laser a bit stronger, but the also said there was a limit they could go. I have had this treatment at another place my face was a bit marked up, but in a couple of days i pealed and was left with the blemishes removed. I am due back June 22 and plan to discuss this and and possible ask for a refund of the treatments i have left. I think I paid for about 8 session and had three with no success.

"It's been 5 days since my first IPL treatment and I'm very pleased. Im 33, fair complexion, blond with freckles. Those freckles started to turn into ugly sun spots with slight melasma from years of birth control pills. I also had some discoloration from pimple scarring and uneven skin tone. Last year it's been worse and I've been uncomfortable not wearing makeup....so I decided to go forward with the treatment.

Definitely do the numbing cream, at least 30 min before procedure. The pain was mild zap and it stings the most around the eyes and nose. The Dr. went over my face twice with the laser. They had me put ice bags on my face after, but I felt fine without it. Over the next day, every dark spot magnified 500% and even unseen spots came out. My face looked like it was sprinkled with coffee grinds!

First three days are the worse. Make-up can't even cover the dark spots. I was a hermit in my house. By the 4th, it started to fade and flake off. I just scrubbed the remainder off my face by day 5.

My skin is alittle pink and Dr. says the full effects take atleast 2 weeks. All the spots on my face are either faded dramatically or gone. My skin tone is even, rejuvenated and soft. It didn't seem to have any impact on the red spots from acne scarring. However, Dr. did tell me that IPL treatment is for mainly sun damage. I might have a few tougher spots touched up with the fraxel laser, which goes much deeper in the skin but also more painful and costly.

Im very pleased with the results after one treatment and don't feel the need for another. Hope this review helps :-)

"I had the photo laser twice. I could really tell the difference in the tightness of my skin. The only drawback is the cost. You're out $250 each session and they claim 6 sessions is advised." - Submitted by Betty Lou L.

"I am presently undergoing IPL treatment primarily for rosacea. I just completed my third treatment and I am very pleased with the results. Not only is there a tremendous improvement in my rosacea, there is a overall improvement in skin-tone, smoothness and tightness of skin. I would highly recommend this treatment to anyone who is interested either in treatment of rosacea or overall skin rejuvenation." - Submitted by Shijo S.

NOT ALL of the girls do this some do take there time." - Submitted by Robin D. of Worcester, MA

"During my consultation I was led to believe that the laser treatment proposed would minimize if not elliminate my facial rosacea (at least with the current troubled capillaries). I was told that it might take two treatments, but that I should see results after one. I was disapointed because I did not see any results from this procedure. After the fact, I was told that the laser used wasn't really meant for my condition and that I should seek another service provider who offered a specific laser that was more appropriate. The staff were courteous and helpful but did not provide adequate or accurate information from the beginning. It was a waste of $200." - Submitted by Alexis R. of Eugene, OR

"I purchased the photo facial service for $1000. I was to have 5 photo facials done to remove the age spots on my cheaks and nose area.
The first nurse I spoke to when I went in for the initial consultation showed me some pictures and told me her experience in getting rid of the age spots with the photo facials. I thought this would work for me too. The treatment was only for my nose and cheak areas.

However, I just went to my last and 5th photo facial yesterday. Overall, the age spots I had have gotten a lot lighter, but they are still there. They were not removed as I was told would happen.
There was one particular freckle I have on my note that I specifically asked if it would come off, and the nurse told me it should come off since it was a freckle I got just 4 years ago after a pimple turned into the freckle. But that freckle is the same as when I went in the first time.

The nurse that did my last 2 treatments told me that because it's not a flat part of my nose, it is very difficult to remove that freckle. This is something that should be told to the patients ahead of time. Do let future patients know that age spots or freckles on the nose may not come off since the surface is not flat, so it's hard for the lazer treatment to get it.
