Don't be fooled. Just because this is a big company, does not mean they have the best lasers. I have had many treatments at American Laser Center and have seen ABSOLUTELY NO RESULTS!!!

Keep in mind that I have VERY DARK hair. I have went to two other laser hair removal centers and have seen AMAZING RESULTS...nearly 95% of active hair follicles killed in just ONE TREATMENT!!!!

DON'T WAIST YOUR TIME AND MONEY AT AMERICAN LASER CENTER!!!!

I was actullay referred to American laser centers by my cousin and I have to say that I'm very happy with my results. I actually did my underarms and bikini with them over 2 yrs ago. I had 7 treatments and altough I didn't finish because I had twins I must say my total reduction of hair was over 80%. I only have sparodic growth on each area and am satisfied. I wasn't able to go back and finish my treatments but the amount of loss compared to what I originally started with was amazing. I really hate when people give a whole company a bad rap. The staff I dealt with was so nice and professional.

I feel compelled to write this review simply because I have had a great experience with this company and there are only negatives on citysearch. I have to give credit where credit is due! I intially signed up to have my lip and chin hair removed. I have always had a dark shadow in these two areas, and as I get older, I just notice even more hair growing under my chin and becoming ingrown. During my consultation, I met with a very nice manager who gave me my options for a package. I had also received the "$300" coupon that most of the reviews talk about, but I knew it would cost much more than that- I understand the $300 is simply marketing. I am in marketing/sales so I know that trick- feel sorry for those of you that think you won something!! Anyways, I was very skeptical because it took 4 sessions before I even really noticed a change. I was not keen on the shaving thing, but I put up with it, and finally started to reap the benefits. I have now had 11 sessions, and still have a ways to go, but I don't have the shadow anymore, and only have to shave a few times in between sessions (which are like every month and 1/2). I have been very satisfied with their service, and would recommend it to my friends!

Pros: good results, nice clean office

Do not sign up for American Laser Centers. i also won a "$300" gift certificate. I went with the fotofacial and microdermabrasion package they said they would take off i think it was $100 or 200 off the package if i signed up that same day...me being an idiot went ahead and signed the papers.... my current bill right now on that package stands at $1400. Have i seen any results. Not at All!!!!!!!! i already had acne prone skin and wanted to take the scars away, they swore the fotofacial would help the acne go away.. it actually made it worse. They tried to be nice and give me extra fotofacials. I got frustrated that it was only making me worse. The next day after fotofacial i would have 5 new pimples on my face. I stopped the fotofacials and now have about 5 micros to still use. The American laser center i went to is on 23rd street. I also didnt like the fact that it's different technicians always messing with your face. They all give different information and all do the procedures differently. Some have acted like they do not even know what they are doing and seem to be 18 yrs old. I do not want a "technician" that is acting like a teenager and no clue what is going on, messing with my face.
For those considering this, please DO NOT, it is such a waste of money, you either see no results or just make whatever u are trying to fix worse...

Pros: NONE!!

Cons: Just about everything as soon as you walk in.

I had won the $300 certificate, and although I had read some reviews about them I figured I would go see what it was about. I was interested in getting some laser hair removal at some stage, so figured why not now?! I had my consultation it sounded great, so I agreed to the treatment. I chose the financial option, using MedChoice Financial. A day later, I lost my job. So I knew I was not going to be able to afford the upcoming treatments. I called them up immediately and asked to cancel my appointments, etc and figured it wouldn't be a problem as it was 2 days after I signed up. They held me to the 10% refund fee, and got $225 out of me, when originally they were going to give me $300!!!!! What a RIP OFF!!! DONT go there, you will be disappointed. I have now also spoken with several people that have had similar experiences at the Bellevue clinic in Washington State, and please please stay away.

Cons: Unhelpful in unforseen circumstances.

If only I had read the reviews and did a little research before signing up. I too had "won" a $500 gift certificate from American Laser at an expo. I went in to see about redeming my certificate and was told I could only use it on a package of services. Well, ok? What woman isnt enticed by the promise of being hairless?
After being assured it would work on my corse hair and skin type (I'm Black) I signed up.
Here we are 12 sessions and many painful moments later still fuzzy wuzzy was a bear. I have just as much hair as when I first walked in their door. The sessions come with a 2yr guarentee but what would be the point other than more torture and more failed results? I have since gone back to waxing.
As others have noted, once they have your money that warm smile you got in the beginning is immed. gone. You are really a nuisance to them and dont even think about canceling an appt.
Do your research, but steer clear of this place

Pros: Neat, clean

Cons: Results promised never delivered

WORSE service and ABSOLUTELY NO results after 2 years of going to apptmts evey 3 months. BEWARE, this is just a money making business. TECHNITIAN turnover is rediculous. You are served and exposed to a new so called laser technitian every visit. Not to be funny but more girls have seen me undressed than men. They take your money and you CANNOT get any refunds what so ever. They dont have appointments written down. You wait 15 min for your appt while if you are late they cancel yours. ALMOST impossible to make a saturday appointment. VERy unprofessional an unorganized. NO RESULTS what so ever

I was a "lucky winner" of a $300 gift certificate for American Laser Center after signing up at an event attended by mostly women. I was also promised an extra $100 if I was to make the appointment in the next two days. This made me very skeptical but I decided to go anyway so investigate. They would not give me any pricing over the phone, not even a range, I needed to be seen by the professional. Upon arrival I was confused because there was not a real reception area and the employees were goofing around like they worked in a fast food joint. A girl tried to sell me the packages, but I was not buying. She just did not seem qualified, and there were no medical professionals in the office. I feel they are taking advantage of women.
After some investigation on the web, there are HORRIBLE complaints about this company. BEWARE.

If you show interest in them, they have a great way calling you to sell you their service and taking your money, but once you sign the docs, then forget about any service provided. They say they are very busy so you make an appointmnet up to 2-3 months in advance, but they do not call you to remind you about it, but rather charge you no show or cancelation fees.

I have been for every 2 months appointments for the last 2 years and 4 months, and I have yet to see the results. I am white with average colored hair, not too hairy, but wanted to be hair free. It will not happen with the $4,000 I wasted on this service. They keep on saying that it is still within their norms in terms of the little patches of no hair I have, (patches are about 25% of the leg surface) but there is only half a year left of my 3 year contract, and i have been to twice as many sessions as the advertise, but doubt there will be any major improvememts in the max 3 seesions I have left in the 3 yr contract.

Pros: clean rooms

Cons: no result, very pricey, no customer service

They seem to have great customer service until they get your money. Then you are treated as though $1000 spent on a package is pennies for what you are receiving. Not true. You pay additional money for their lotions and special sunblock ($65) which did nothing for me - i used it liberally and still have discoloration. How do they solve this? They tell you to buy some other lightening lotion or you can get another laser treatment for the scarring - upwards of $500. I went to ALC specifically because i knew i'd be moving and figured the package would be great because their centers are everywhere. Well, that's been a hassle in itself. For a huge corporation, they use an archaic system on having to fax your records to another center, although they do have a computer system, they apparently just don't see the sense of using it to keep and share patients files with other centers. Of course, my records were never received by the new center. And try getting a hold of the individual offices. You need special entrance to contact any of them - they don't list their numbers, you get sent to the 800 number. Basically, they want your money, what you get for it, they really don't care about. The technicians seem novice, and after my experience i've come to the conclusion this is retail hair removal, nothing medical or professional about it. I feel misled. I would recommend going to a real physician to do this type of thing. I don't even know if it works as i have had a difficult time even making my remaining appointments.

Don't bother wasting your money here for laser hair removal as it doesn't work. It's been a total waste of my money. I was sucked in by a "great price" on a package deal. I was glad to pay one price for all sessions including a 3 year "guarantee" versus another place I used and payed by session (BTW - my other place did work). However, I've been going for about two years now and have seen NO REDUCTION in the amount of hair. Absolutely no hair loss. I'm not hairy but just wanted to be hair free and was told during consultation it would be no problem to remove hair permanently. Don't be fooled by their offers or multi-year guarantees. They could give a million years but if there's no permanent removal, what good is it? Answer: None. Please learn from my mistake and don't bother going here for laser hair removal services.
