Please, if my experience can do one thing, it's to stop at least one person from going here. Poorly written regulations is all that allows this place to run. Remember, it's not a doctor's office...it's a "Med Spa". I'm badly scarred for

This is absolutely the worst experience I have ever had, in a "professional" setting/environment. I would never have expected this type of unprofessionalism and patient disregard from a "supposed" legitimate company. I am reporting them to

I have always been treated with respect and I value that. Dr. Hovi, Maureen and Andrea have always looked out for my best interest and offered me excellent service.

Didn't you research hair removal before you got the treatment? I had it myself and I did read quite a bit about the process before jumping in. It is my understanding that hair can always come back and that you should never be under the misconception that this is not a possibility. Every website I read during my research stated that including Monarch's. I've had numerous areas treated with Monarch and have gone back once for a follow up treatment on my upper lip only in the last year and a half and thats been it. All other areas I have treated have been fine. (Legs, Bikini, and Underarms) I dont know who you spoke to, but I have always worked with Darby who has been extremely upfront and honest about everything. I realize that I may eventually have to go in for a touch up at some point in the future but I think that is a very small price to pay considering that I've barely touched a razor to my body in the last year and a half.

I signed up for Monarch's laser hair removal after hearing about it on the radio. I spoke with a sales rep over the phone who ENSURED me that I would be 100% hair free after completing my treatments. The sales rep NEVER mentioned that there were only 6 treatments per packagae and that some additional packages may be required. She simply told me not to worry about anything and that I would enjoy my treatments and be completely hair free when I was finished.

After completing my 6 treatments I still have COMPLETE hair regrowth. I have called and called about this issue and tried to ask for a complimentary treatment after spending $1100 on my first package. Needless to say my request was denied and the management had no remorse for their unethical sales team. They simply told me that I had signed documents saying they were not responsible to help me beyond my treatment unless I wanted to purchase more packages.

During my treatments I had referred two friends for the same service. My friends are also experiencing major hair regrowth. I will NEVER go to Monarch again and you should seriously consider doing the same.

I have always been a well built, blue eyed blonde, with an hourglass figure?that is until I hit menopause. At that point everything went south, and I was built like a pear, tiny waist and larger butt!! I joined a gym, I starved myself, I tried all of the diet aids..but nothing worked. Worst of all?I could not fit into any of my gorgeous clothes. I was on a very tight budget, like everyone else I knew?and the situation was bleak.
As luck would have it, each morning I would listen to the radio while getting ready for work, at 530 AM, and consistently heard the advertisement for monarc med spa. I didn??t think much of it at the time?until I had to get into one of my fabulous outfits and it just didn??t work for me?.It was like that old line from the movie steele magnolias?.?in that outfit my butt looked like two pigs fighting under a blanket???I had to take action.
I called monarc and was lucky enough toschedule an appointment with Darby?.who patiently listened as i detailed the horrifying bodily changes that occur during menopapuse. We stuck and agreement on price..and the next thing you know, I was scheduled to meet with dr Alonso.
I must tell you he is a charming man, but as a nurse I was looking for clinical expertise, safety, and a positive outcome.I looked him up on the physician website, and he has such an impressive record, that I knew I could trust his work. I scheduled the vasolipo procedure with him immediately.
I am now 4 months out from my vasolipo procedure and have lost 2 inches on each thigh?for a total of 4 inches, and this is without diet modification and working out?.the results were amazing and I would highly recommend Monarch to all who may be in my situation
Fight the aging process?fight it with all you can?call monarch?you??ll be amazed at the results

Monarch medspa was a wonderful place!! I had tattoos removed, and I was worried that the people there would look at me differently because of my numerous tattoos.
However it was the complete opposite, the staff are the most friendly and affectionate people, and they really care about what they do! Price is great and they did a great job, after 4 treatments my tattoos are almost gone, ive heard case where it has taken more than 12 treatments! way to go monarch! I WOULD RECOMMEND TO EVERYONE!

I love this facility and the people who work there because they keep up with the latest in skin care and cosmetic services, yet they don't push anything on you. Rather they are willing to enterain questions about any service and help you decide if it's right for you.

Monarch's tattoo removal has been a great experience. I am coming up on the end of my tattoo removal and my tattoo is almost completely gone!

Since becoming a patient of Monarch, I have had a couple Botox treatments for my forehead/scow lines and one Juvederm injection to plump my lips. I have had wonderful results each time. Their prices are reasonable; occasionally they offer discounted packages for Botox. The entire staff is courteous and professional. I am completely satisfied with Monarch and won't go anywhere else!

The staff is very professional and knowledgeable. They all work with you to make sure you get the best results while making you feel comfortable. Definitely the best laser experience and results I've had in the Baltimore area.

The staff was and still is wonderful. They were supportive and caring. The results of my breast augmentation have been great. Everyone has said how great I look and I feel great about myself. I had a little pain but it didn't last long. But I think that I look great and the staff and my friends and family think I do also. I have friends and family that would like to par take in their services. I would go back to them if I have any other needs.

In November 2008, I had Vaser Lipo done and it was everything that I expected. I had fat removed from everywhere between my bra line to my knees. I went back in August 2009 for a minor touch up and the recouperation from both procedures were very minimal. I had both procedures done on a Saturday and I returned to work on Monday with no one at work knowing that I had anything done. The compression garment is worn under your clothes and can be easily hidden. My cothes fit better and the monthly payments are manageable. I would like to go back to have a little fat removed from under my chin but I'll wait a while. Dr. Alonso and his staff are wonderful!!! I would recommend Monarch MedSpa to anyone!!!

My daughter had injections over a year and a half ago and the results are terrible. She has called several time to get a medical tech visit and no one will call her back. Finally today I called on her behalf and she was scheduled to come in this Thurs. Their lack of concern and response to the problem leaves a very negative taste in our mouths. The small amount of cellulite that my daughter was treating is nothing compared to the discoloration and "lumps" she now has... and this is after only one of the three treatments! Needless to say - there was no refund for the remaining two either!
We will await the results of her visit this Thursday before determining our next step - but I warn you to beware of the treatments here.

I am a tattoo artist and refer plenty of clients to Monarch to remove tattoos before placing new art and they haven't done wrong yet. I have been referring people there since 2007. truth is no one knows how many treatments its really gonna take because there are many variables that go into the equation ie. ink depth, quality of the ink, placement of the tattoo etc. good luck!

I decided to use this company to remove a tattoo that "seemed appropriate" when I got it. I was told by the sales rep at their Timonium location that I would need to purchase a $1,690.00 package of 5 visits but, "you should only need 3 visits to remove this tattoo". I had emailed her a picture while we were setting up my 1st appointment. At my 1st appointment with the nurse, I was discussing possible uses for the remaining "extra" time I had paid for. It was at this point I realized I had been directly lied to. The nurse told me that tattoo?s require 6 to 12 visits for removal. I explained that I was told by the sales person that only 3 visits of thier "laser treatment" is all that would be necessary. BUYER BEWARE. I do plan on finishing up and will let you know how many visits it actually took to remove.
