I am a client who originally contracted with NuU Medspa in 2010 for the Smart Lipo procedure at the Oak Brook, IL location. I was quoted approximately 6400.00 and made a deposit of 3000.00. On Jan. 14, 2011 I made an additional deposit of 3000.00 bringing my total paid to 6000.00 and agreed to pay balance on the date of the procedure. Upon making the last payment I was scheduled on February 11 for pre-op evaluation and February 25th for surgery. The February date was canceled and a new date of March 11th was scheduled. Upon calling for additional information I was informed by Lex or Imani that no March date was set and was then scheduled for April 19, 2011. On Wednesday, April 13th, I was informed by Lex that my scheduled date for April 19th was also canceled and I would receive a call back for re-scheduling.

Due to my dissatisfaction of canceled dates, changing locations, erratic company contacts, and poor customer service I lost confidence in the company, Axiology Aesthetics, which took over NuU Medspa and assumed its liabilities. I believe that any reputable physician would not work for an unstable company that handles its customers with such disregard and decided to cease my relationship with them. I immediately called Lex back and informed him I did not want to proceed with the procedure and requested an immediate refund. That is where the run around began. He immediately became vague about who I could speak to, said he didn't want to "argue" with me and would have "someone" call me back. He began asking questions unrelated to situation at hand - "who wrote you up." On Thursday afternoon I had yet to hear from anyone and attempted to call the company at which time my call was screened by the person answering the phone. I asked for a manager and the person on the phone asked me "what kind of manager." I told her any manager, her manager, Lex's manager, but she refused to get anyone in authority for me to speak with, but stated someone by the name of Dan would call me back. I asked her his last name and she stated she didn't know but that he is the Vice President. When I asked her how she could work for a company without knowing the VP's last name she accused me of arguing with her and hung up stating she had other customers to talk to.

A few hours later someone identifying himself as Dan Rumello called and apologized for the inconvenience, indicated there were problems with the physician, and he would secure another to do my procedure within the week. He also indicated he would provide transportation to and from the facility. He also stated he would call me back in 24 hours with updated information. Mr. Rumello did not contact me again until this writing, Tuesday, April 19th after I've begun proceedings to recover my funds. He informed me that he would contact customer service to begin refund proceedings but I have not received a call from anyone.

I paid lots of money and got no results. They promised but did not deliver. They are cheaters. I will be contacting the BBB and Lisa Madigans office. I also got laser burns, and all they worried was if I was going to sue them. I am disappointed and you will be sorry if you do not listed to these posts. If you want to see my bill, or my burns , or the results after 6 treatments I will be happy to show you.

This company has blatantly stolen my money and is refusing to give it back! Back in Feb of this year I have purchased a series of 3 pixel treatments and microdermobrasion follow ups for the price of $2,700.00. The treatments were to be performed at the skokie location. After we payed upfront for these services, we were never contacted for an appointment to start the treatments. After initiating contact we finally were able to set our first appointment. The day of the appointment, I received a call minutes before the appointment and was asked to reschedule because the equipment had to be temporarily relocated? whatever that means? The problem was that we were already at the location because they called us only minutes before the appointment, so we wasted an after noon. . A week later, we received a phone call from them asking us if we can go to the downtown location because the equipment has yet to have been set up at the location that we purchased the treatments at. We reluctantly agreed to go to the alternative location for the first treatment as we were promised by them that the equipment will be in place at the Skokie location by the time of the second appointment.Well, suffice it to say, the equipment has yet to be installed at the location and I decided that I would like a refund due to them not delivering on what I purchased. After being fed up to the point of insanity dealing with the local personnel on trying to get a refund, I was contacted by Sean Hoffman from corporate. After numerous phone calls, all initiated by me, I reluctantly agreed to a partial refund of 1,700.00. I agreed to this on 7-8-10. Here it is 3 months later and I have yet to receive a refund. I have on numerous occasions called and left messages for Sean Hoffman, who would return my call and give me a line off bull crap every time. Sean Hoffman at first told me that he put the check request in and that it can take a few weeks. After a few weeks came and gone, he then told me it can take up to a couple of months, but he is putting me on top of the list. Here it is 3 months later and I have yet to receive my money back. The latest experience I have had with Sean Hoffman is him telling me that he will get back to me the next day. When I called the next day because I did not here from, I was transfered to his voicemail that explained that he will be out for another week. This message was the day after he promised me he would call with the latest status of my refund check. Sean Hoffman has lied numerous times to me and is continuuing to give me the run around in hopes that I give up. I have no choice but to pursue legal action to get my money back. Please head this warning.. Do not prepay for any treatments whatsoever, and do not waste your time with Sean Hoffman if you do end up getting burned, as Sean will tell you what you want to hear but will not deliver on his promises. It is important to understand as well that this is not an unsatisfied customer because the treatments did not work. We were sold the services, but they were never delivered as promised! That constitutes theft which is what nuumed spa is doing here.

I wanted to wait and finish all 6 laser hair removal treatments so I can see how effective they were all together before writing a review. I'm in shock how laser hair removal really works on my bikini, legs and underarms. I finished my last treatment 2 weeks ago and I honestly don't have to shave anymore. What a great investment! The staff has been sweet and attentive each and every time and I had a great experience every time. I never felt rushed and very spa-like

I schedule an appointment with Nuu MedSpa 2 weeks in advance and this is just because they didn't have any availability sooner.

I had a very important event 2 days after the schedule appointment.

One day before the appointment Nuu MedSpa called me and cancel....
I was so disappointed and ask to speak with the manager.

The representative told me the manager not there and there is NOTHING she can do! but said the manager will give me a call back within an hour or 2.- NO one called me or showed any concern regarding my situation.

I called the day after and ask to speak with the manager but she wasn't in. the lady that answer the phone told me the manager will be back in 30 min and I should expect a call back within an hour...
And AGAIN.... I didn't received any call!

I spent a few thousand dollars at this place and I feel so terrible now.
I would go to another place but I already paid in advance.
As a business owner I think this is a very bad business...
No one care or show any concern. Do not use this guys- Nuu MedSpa is a big nation wide corporation and you don't want to find your self as a small, not important component in there money making machine

Not the best experience so far. Had an appointment a week ago for Botox and assumed, which I shouldn't have, that I would be getting botox that day. I went in and found out that I drove 45 minutes for a "free consultation". Although not very happy, I wanted to make another appointment so I could have the services I wanted. They then told me that in order to get an appointment, I would have to pre-pay for the services. Again, not very happy, I agreed to the very odd policy. My appointment, scheduled for tomorrow, was just cancelled by them, due to a 'scheduling conflict'. Needless to say, I won't be going back after I finally get the services I paid for, if that ever happens. So, so far, hasn't be a very good experience and has taken much more time than I had bargained for, as compared with other places I have been for the same service.

Wow! I'm glad I read all these reviews. I had a consultation at the Oak Brook office for SmartLipo, I was very pleased as to how friendly and informatiive the sales person was. I did feel pressured into signing up at that time and I told her NO, it was too much money. She gave me some kind of discount, which lowered the price... I left there without signing anything and she kept calling me to go back she would give me more of a discount etc. I felt even more pressure and felt like - wait why would she lower the price so much... well I guess they just needed to make the sale. I still said no thanks. I went back into their website and considered calling them again, now that I read all these reviews... I WILL NOT WASTE MY MONEY! Thanks for the posted comments that convinced me to try somewhere else.

I started laser hair removal treatment at NuU Med Spa Chicago last year. I was pressured into buying a package and paying for it up front and in full (the offer they told me ended that very day). The first treatment I had left a grid of disfiguring scars on the area treated. A doctor I sought out independently told me that the laser had not been used properly.

The NuU Medspa technician told me that the scars had been caused by the cooling agent in the laser (i.e. that they were freeze burns) and that they would disappear within two weeks but the scars did not disappear and they were not freeze burns but hyperpigmentation. I asked to see a doctor, and was told that I would be contacted shortly by NuU Medspa. I never was and I only managed to see a doctor after making repeated and regular telephone calls to NuU Medspa (each time I was promised a follow-up call and an appointment with a doctor very soon). I eventually did see a doctor but six months after my initial request to see one.

During the period that I was waiting to see a doctor, I was transferred to the NuU Medspa at Armitage, Chicago, for treatment using a Yag laser with a different cooling tip. The Yag laser at the Armitage location, however, kept switching off unexpectedly and after my second treatment it went out of service. I was told that the machine would be fixed the following week, but when I arrived for my next appointment the machine was still out of service. At this appointment, I was told that the other laser available at the Armitage location would be equally effective on my skin, even though the technician at my first consultation had recommended the Yag laser to me. I agreed to be treated with the ??Alexxandrite?? laser but I was unsatisfied with the results and so I asked to return to the ??Yag?? laser on my next visit. Unfortunately, the Yag laser was never fixed. I booked a series of appointments for my next treatment but each of these was canceled. Every time I telephoned NuU Medspa I was told that the ??Yag?? laser had ??just gone out of service?? but that it was going to be fixed that week, and when I telephoned the following week I was told that the repair person had not shown up and that the machine would be up and running the following week.

I was never able to complete the series of treatments that I had purchased, because the Yag laser remained out of service. Unable to complete the laser package that I had purchased and unhappy with the service I had received at NuU Medspa I contacted Sean Hoffman at the main office. I contacted Mr. Hoffman in mid August this year and he told me that the company did not offer refunds, but that given the nature of my case he would see what he could do. Mr. Hoffman made many promised to sort out my case as soon as possible and in total I must have spent several hours talking to him on the phone. Becoming increasingly frustrated with the situation, I posted a review on ??Yelp?? describing my experiences with NuU Medspa. Several hours after posting my review, Mr. Hoffman telephoned me requesting that I remove the negative post and informed me that he was ??working?? on my case. I removed the post immediately but did not hear back from Mr. Hoffman. When I did telephone Mr. Hoffman again he told me that he needed an updated photograph of my scars. I sent Mr. Hoffman some updated photographs of my scars on the agreement that he contact me within the week. I have still not heard from Mr. Hoffman.

This company is a rip-off. I had Dysport injected into my forehead on 5-20-10 and was told that it would last 3-4 months but only lasted 1 month. When I called to complain I was told that I would not get my money back.\r
They are sneaky!!

I am a loyal client of Nu U MedSpa.

questions or concerns. I had my upper and lower abdomen as well as my love handles "taken care of." The procedure itself lasted about and hour and a half (both times). I was able to clean my entire apartment following it!!! It was quick and virtually painless. Not to mention the results are amazing. My stomach has literally NO fat left on it and I am more than happy with the results.

I would highly recommend that anyone and everyone take the opportunity to have a consultation at NU U Medspa at least to see what the process is all about. Its totally worth the price to come out looking the way I did!!

I am shocked to read the negative reviews and all I can say is go see for yourself. You will be thrilled you took the time.

Take it from me, I went once and went back three months later!

questions or concerns. I had my upper and lower abdomen as well as my love handles "taken care of." The procedure itself lasted about and hour and a half (both times). I was able to clean my entire apartment following it!!! It was quick and virtually painless. Not to mention the results are amazing. My stomach has literally NO fat left on it and I am more than happy with the results.

I wanted to write a review about Nu U and my overall experience and their over all staff deserves the highest rating. including customer service. I put my package on hold after a few missteps on their part, i was reached by Customer Service and i was willing to work with them, because i was told in the center they have a exchange only policy and i was not very happy about that to begin with, but i did know that going into it, i just thought it would be less of a concern because i was referred by a co-worker that had no problems. will after a few rounds with Customer Service they saw me through to the real reason i came to their medspa in the first place and also worked out some complementary treatments for my time that was wasted. i was very happy and satisfied with that and the treatment i FINALLY received. They performed Skin tightening and photo facials, I noticed a dramatic reduction after the first 3 treatments. I have a positive review because i trusted what they said and i ended up seeing the results that i expected best of luck to all who visit

I have had an awesome experience here as far as the treatments. I've done laser hair removal for underarms and a bikini. I've seen great results and hope that all of the hair will disappear. Most of it is gone. They are all so attentive, informative, and listens well. This is treatment is not pricey! i would recommend to any one to visit NU and make there own opinions, mine is totally awesome!!!

I went last week and had a great time. For my first visit, i did Micros and Chem Peels, and I couldn't have been happier. Great service, Nurses and technicians, and everything was very hassle free, which I definitely appreciated. I've heard about Nu U Medspa, and even with a poor reviews, I decided to give it a try. i look for deals people!!

I am not just a 5-star girl, but I am certainly an optimist as well as a realist, and this place totally delivered. No attitude and nothing pretentious, a awesome deal, and I'd be wrong if I didn't let people know that mine was a very above average experience. Nu U has not let me down! Hope this helps, and I hope y'all get to enjoy some time here.

I originally posted this review in April and was immediately contacted by Sean to remove it saying they would work on a solution to resolve my issues. That has not yet happened. I had to go in for a meeting with a manager and when I got there she was running late so i had to meet with someone else to discuss other procedures. I said I was not really interested in other procedures because of my disappointment with the first time around. I have now been passed on to some other customer service rep that fails to return my calls or follow through with what he tells me. They have been now telling me they will have someone (maybe a doctor?) from the location contact me. It still has not happened and then I will call back a week or so later and I just get the excuse that it must have slipped through the cracks somehow. He then apologized and said "We will get this taken care of like yesterday!" Well, weeks have passed, yesterday was a long time ago and I am beyond tired of waiting. I spent waaaaayyyyy toooo much money for it not to work and now to have bruising and swelling. Since they have now taken too long to come up with a solution I am re-posting my original review. I tried to give them a chance and now well over 2 months have gone by and no one is even returning my calls. They are unbelievable and PLEASE PLEASE DO NOT waste your money and get sucked in to their scams.

I am writing to review the lipo dissolve treatment. It does not work! I had many treatments on my thighs that were very painful which they told me would not be. I was pushed into making a decision on the spot, if I were to go home and think about it the "deal" would no longer be good. My treatments were over a year and a half ago and I notice no change in size whatsoever. They somehow convinced me to spend more ridiculous amounts of money to add the zorona laser treatments to increase the "effect" of the Lipo D. That was a scam. They did tell me it could take a while to work and notice results and for swelling to go away, but i think by now it should look better for all the money I spent. I now have lumpy, puffy, discolored skin areas where the treatment was injected. I spoke with a manager a while ago and when i called her back to schedule a time to see her, she failed to return several calls. I am very busy and just gave up but as more time passes I am still mad and annoyed I wasted sooooo much money. I would not recommend these treatments, this company or ANY of their services!!!

I have to say reading these reviews can be discouraging, So I had to check it out for myself. I signed up on-line for a free consultation and received a phone call from a representative who was very bubbly and friendly. I scheduled my appointment for Saturday for Smart Lipo. I have to say that the Lincoln Park office staff was very friendly and even though they were quite busy on Saturday I was introduced by both the manager and consultant. I was very at ease during my consultation and it was very informative. I ended up signing up for both Laser Hair Removal and Smart Lipo. I am so excited and cant wait to start treatment. I would definitely recommend ths to all of my girlfriends!!

The reviews on here are harsh, I had quite a different experience. The consultants are very knowledgeable and took their time with me explaining all teatments and options.

I purchased SmartLipo and had the procedure about 2 months ago and have seen great results already! I would def recommend NuU to anyone who is interested in any medspa services. Sorry for the clients that have had bad experiences.

I also had the worst experience with this company. I called and inquired about laser hair removal, which they told me to come in and get started that day. I went in thinking I was paying for a procedure that would start that day. Gina took my $1000 deposit then proceeded to tell me that they were too busy that day. I then asked for a refund she stated come tomorrow and they squeeze me in. The next day, they sent me to Schaumburg, where they didnt have the correct laser!! They then offered me a complimentary facial, that turned out to be a chemical peel! It took layers of skin off my face!!! I now have scars on my face and they still have my deposit for my laser treatment!!! Rawlings and Sean Hoffman refuse to return my calls or money til I sign a waiver releases their responsibilities!!!! DO NOT GO TO THEM AT ALL THEY TOOK MY MONEY WITHOUT EVEN GIVING ME SERVICE!!! i HAVE SINCE HIRED A LAWYER!

Visited the Lincoln Park Nu U Medspa, and everyone there was great and the young lady that said she was the manager was very nice. I had laser hair done and I'm very pleased with the results. I'm going back for other treatments. i have already signed up for microderms and i will keep you posted on my results.They are affordable and clean, I would recommend this Med spa to friends and family.

I want to apologies about my weak English writing in advance. B/c English is my second language.

My story is not that different form most of your stories guys. This place respect only your money. I had a free consultation with there sell woman "Angela Camarillo" in the mid of February . At the begin every thing was nice. We had discussed every thing about the smartlipo, producer, haling time, and most importantly the cost.

When I was singing the paper work I notice one segment from it that "NU U spa is not held responsible if the results do not satisfy the customer" or something close to that. I stop every thing and asked here how many inches that I am going to loss after the surgery? Her answer was the following : "I am not sure may be 2 to 3 inches". At that point i realized that she is not a doctor. I asked her to meet with a real doctor. Her face changed immediately and she started to pushing me to pay now and then see the doctor. I refused to pay any thing and after few minutes she side if you want to see one you have to pay 250 $ to make an appointment. I admit that it was my mistake to agree on such thing. I paying the money and she was supposed to call me after two days to conform it. After two weeks, she hadn't called me yet and every time I called her her the front desk tells me she is not available and she will call me later. On the 3rd week I want by my self again and demanded to close my file and refund my money. They refused to return my money and the only thing I got is a useless gift card . The worst thing is not the scam they trying to pulled on me with 12,000$ after the 60% of, it is the way that they tried to make all of this is my flute and laying about they had been trying to call me many times and I didn't pick up the phone. This place is wast of time and money and I am telling you guys don't ever never thinking about visiting it.

One more thing, they offered to finance for the surgery and when they contact the credit card company they told me that my refused has been turned down and I will not get any finance. A week later I got a credit card in my mail with 2500$ and 25% APR. I called them and canceled it imminently before they mange to withdraw any thing. So watch out and never give them your credit information.

An update to my post from January:

I recently had a problem with the care that I recieved from Nu U Medspa. I am happy to say honestly that my problem was brought to the attention of the customer service and and it was dealt with in an awesome way. Right after I notified Nu U about my problem I recieved a call from the customer service representative who assured me that they would take care of the situation. Since then I have been in constant contact with them and they have truly given 100% effort in order to see that I, the customer, was left satisfied!!

All was well when I was told at This location that I would get a 60% Off deal of $10k for Services and was pushed to set a date and pay during my consultation with a Sales person (No Dr) . This is the normal price Everywhere but here it's a 60% Off Deal. I post about my experience, their Customer Service Rep asked me to remove my review for a $1500 discount. bringing the price to $8500. Well this is the Sale Price for Feb. Once again. No Deal. I'm dealing with The Armitage Location for all of this. I have yet to even meet with Drs. This Game is all played before I meet with a Dr in the Oakbrook location as you only meet with them the day of services.

After I was given the $8500 "deal" I was Offered and was supposedly transferred a credit for $5400 at the Skokie Location (Look at photos. Tacky Write up and and NU U Did everything to keep me from Using it. Even by contacting the original holder of this credit. They knew and commented on how she was trying to get rid of it online for a Very Long time. When they saw that she finally got rid of it to me. Only then did they contact her about a "PARTIAL" Refund. This way they are allowed to keep part of the cash that they had already received from her) .
This is the office that I was going to purchase my services through. I've gotten several run around. The first was a 60% off that comes out to be the same price as any other M.D (but it was supposed to be a sale) Then their background chats (customer service /sales staff) on how they can milk you out of $$. You notice that they speak because you'll leave a MSG .. no return call, then say forget it and someone calls you right back within the hour. Both parties always know when you just ended the call with the other party. All of these games. Just do what you're supposed to do. Good Lawd! I hate that each location doesn't have a direct number. that's a Negative Sign .. They caller I.D You then call their offices to forewarn the staff. All of this crazy stuff to take you for a joyride. I never met the DR as you have to Play the Game First. There is no way in Hell would I give these people $10,000 of my Cash. There is a no Refund Policy. They will only contact you if they feel that you're going to write about them. Just like the woman giving away her credit. They watched her attempt to give it away. When someone wanted to finally use it. Then they want to negotiate with her.. so that I can't use it. I go to the Skokie Location and they Scribble a Transferred Credit. I've posted photos. Unbelievable. DO NOT Waste your $$ here unless you're going for a cheaper Facial or something!
I hope that they improve their -F Rating from the Better Business Bureau

I'm definitely a fan. I was pretty nervous about doing lipo but Dana (manager at the LP location) helped put my mind at ease. The Dr who performed my procedure was very friendly and helped me relax (the pills they supplied me with didn't hurt either :) ) Full service, they even picked me up and dropped me off in a limo the day of the surgery (who does that?! WOW!). I got a pretty good price too. Everything healed up nicely, I got back to working out moderately 2 weeks post op and was pretty much back to normal in a month. Very happy with the follow-up and the Oak brook staff called to check up on me hours after the surgery and then every couple of weeks to check on my recovery. I would recommend this place in a heartbeat.

I signed up for a photo facial package - 5 chempeels/micro and 5 photofacials for about $1800. I have large brown spots on both my cheeks and under my eyes that look like bruises, but are due to sun damage. I was assured this would remove those spots. The first one they did a chempeel and photofacial same day - Over the next few days, i began to see the coffee ground effects and results. I had 8 more treatments to go. I took pictures of each change, so I could realize the difference at the end of this million dollar treatment. Unfortunately my 2nd treatment, had NO results. Nothing. I took pictures of that too. No on called to check on me(as they always do), so I called the manger to ask why the signifcant difference. She was on vacation so they gave me the next person in charge(Gina). She proceeded to ask me if I was in a different room? Who did the first one? and then told me, each laser can be different and stronger than the last. (like tanning bed bulbs?) I informed her, that I had no coffee grounds like last time coming through, nothing! She proceed to get angry and argumentive with me. She then proceeded to tell me I would have to wait till the end of ALL 10 treatments to determain the outcome. I informed her I felt no service was provided and if the rest continued at this rate, I was certain to not see a change in my skin at all. I felt they rubbed jelly on my face and wiped it off and sent me on my way. It seems to Save $$$ THEY ARE NOT doing the procedures. I asked noted it in my chart. She said fine and hung up. Unprofessional. The Spa, it self in not nice and relaxing. The front water fountain sits rusted out. They music is loud, no one is ever nice enough to offer you anything to drink. The Techs don't ask about any additional concerns, new meds, etc. Things they should know about before starting a procedure. They always try to talk you into more packages before you even leave- very Pushy! Be Aware They don't Care.

Pros: sorry None you can't get elsewhere - BETTER

Cons: unprofessional, inconsistant procedures, lack of concern for customer

I signed up for the Pretty City special of $59 for service and was almost duped. I did read all the reviews but felt maybe if I tried another location it would be "different". Something told me to call and confirm etc. and Im glad I did. SCAM!!!! They advised me that my fee was for a consultation and "if there was time" I would be seen for the procedure. Absolute nonsense, shouldnt that be provided the same day of the service? Why sign up for a "special" promotion and not offer this to consumers honestly. ...I would NEVER EVER go to them...If you are in need of Spa Services Dina @ Nourish Medspa in Lombard is wonderful!!! I saw her instead due to the NU U ripoff!!!! Tell her Carla sent you...;o)

She does wonderful chemical peels and Im sure any other service is fantastic!!! I was given tea and was totally relaxed!!!! Beware Ladies!!!! Thanks....

Pros: 0

Cons: poor phone consultation, numerous numbers *franchise* very impersonal, dishonest on procedures and services *fees*

This Company has the most deceptive business tactics. Pushy (creepy) sales approach. Outrageous they call themselves a "med spa." They don't even appear on Yahoo Yellow Pages anymore because of all the negative consumer reviews (COMPLAINTS!). However, there's plenty of information out there (including Pam Zekman's report about Nu U in May 2008). Check it out and be glad you were warned.

Nu U Med Spa is A SCAM! They will tell you what you want to hear, they appear nice & professional (don't the best scammers?) and they will talk you in to what you THOUGHT you might want, and they WILL TALK YOU UP (don't the best sales people?!). They will want you to have your TREATMENT RIGHT AWAY (awww... isn't that nice of them to fit you in, so customers with appts need to wait), ONLY, so you CAN NOT get a REFUND once you have had 1 treatment. Or, they will tell you after numererous phone calls that you will have to PAY FULL PRICE, which will be probably be half of what you were to pay for 1 treatment instead of 6! The company is not SANITARY, & should not be practicing certain procedures (SMART LIPO)... VERY SCARY! I would not trust my LIFE OR HEALTH in thier hands. I have seen BIOHAZARD sit around for WEEKS at a atime, when it should have been disposed of the next day! But, that is because SALES are MORE important than the health of the clients or the STAFF! Yes, the staff, or CORPORATE STAFF.... They have BOUNCED PAYCHECKS CONSISTANTLY in ALL of the locations! they even SCAM the empolyees,and do not reissue paychecks they bounce. Think twice before OVERPAYING with this CO. thinking you might get a better service.... You will NOT! You will just get taken for MORE MONEY! I even had certain DOCTORS tell me NOT TO HAVE TREATMENTS there, because THEY DO NOT WORK! ...But believe me, I have seen all of the files myself, & know the results for myself. If there is 1 review of this company that you found helpful, I hope you seriously consider this one. This is the honest truth & I feel ashamed to have been a part of this company! Oh yes, the reports on Ch. 2 NEWS with PAM ZEKEMANN are TRUE too! Hopefully if you go, you wont be one of the many that have been permanently scarred worse after getting thier treatments than before, but I have seen TOO MANY! This is a SALES business, NOT a MEDICAL office. They Sales staff MANAGES THE DOCTORS!!!! REMEMBER THAT. Good luck.

Pros: Looks nice, appears nice, JUST TO TAKE YOUR MONEY

Cons: The company and services are a SCAM, Unethical & UNSANITARY

I visited NuU in December of 07. I had a radiesse filler done and botox done and was very happy with the results. A nurse did both procedures and she was fantastic! I am actually going back to get this done in the next couple of months. Such an amazing difference and the Radiesse lasted close to a year. The Botox actually made my eyes appear lifted. I looked more awake. I was very happy. The BOtox did only last 3 moths and it was to the day amazingly.

In my opinion, Nu U is a scary company. They are licensed in Las Vegas, and seem to act more like bookies than professional medical service providers. Nu U talked me into signing up for a Care Credit account to buy their $3,600 medspa package. I purchased photofacials, laser treatments, botox and facial fillers. When I complained about the lack of results, I was told I had to "give it a chance." After I finished almost all of my treatments, I still noticed no results. I talked to their "doctor in charge" about my complaint, and he said he would help but never got back to me. I finally demanded a refund from GE Care Credit and, after sending Care Credit three letters specifically detailing Nu U's high-pressure sales tactics, misleading claims and what seemed to me to be false advertising, GE refunded my money in full (even the amount I had already paid!). Six months later Nu U turned me over to a collection agency to force me to give back my refund. The owner even threatened me with court. She accused me of using all the treatments then asking for my money back, even though my technician told me I had to finish the treatments to see the results! According to one published news report, GE Care Credit terminated their relationship with Nu U due to the number of customers who demanded refunds. Finally, to make matters worse, my board certified plastic surgeon told me he had to surgically correct problems in other patients due to the bumps in their faces from receiving the same facial filler I had got from Nu U Lincoln Park!

Cons: Misleading, No Refund Policy

At first, I loved the people at the lincoln park location. Then I realized I was being scammed. I was talked into getting $7200 worth of lipodisolve treatments and a year after my first treatment, still no results. The only thing I have to show is awful bruising that still hasn't gone away. Check out the investigation by CBS 2 news. They are also being investigated by the *** (it won't let me enter the name, but hopefully you can figure it out). If you read these reviews and still decide to go, don't pre-pay for any of your treatments as they will not refund your money. Also, do some more research on lipodisolve before you take their salespeoples words on the safety of it. In the investigation, it says that one women has to get surgery to remove the scare tissue that resulted from the lipodisolve injections. DON'T GO HERE, IT'S NOT WORTH THE RISK!

Its only been 2 weeks since my Smart Lipo treatment, and I'm thrilled more than I even imagined! The pocedure itself was so simple! I took one day off of work to recover and went right back to work!

I've already gone down TWO sizes!!!! And I still don't have my full results yet!

I wish I could post pictures here to show everyone my wonderful results!

Thank you, Nu U Med Spa!!
