This all started with a Groupon for Laser Hair Removal and a series of IPL/Mircroderm facials. I understood when I started the hair removal process that 6 sessions would not be enough. I ponied up the extra cash for an additional 6 sessions and a year later not a tiny difference. I have wasted a complete year coming in every 6-7 weeks without a single thing to show for it. Seriously, no improvement what so ever. I keep being told to give it time but, I am sorry after a year you should at least see some progress.

Here is the straw that broke the camels back. I purchased 20 units of Botox and when I met with the doctor he advised me that 10 units would be plenty. I have to admit he was right and I was thrilled to have enough units to have a second round! He did a fantastic job.

It's been almost 4 months and it was time to go back in. When I called I was told that the chart showed that I had already used up all 20 units. I mentioned the last appointment with the doctor and that he in fact had only used 10 units. The receptionist said she would follow up on it and get back to me. I had appointment set for today. No phone call about any issues so I left work early to make my appointment. I was told that for any reason if there was an issue they would call me before the appointment.

Today I left work early and took the time off. I drove all the way from Seattle to the North Kirkland location only to find out that their record still showed I had used all 20 units. I distinctly recalled the conversation with the doctor and asked to speak with him about this. Apparently this doctor had retired. I insisted that in fact the records were inaccurate. They were chicken scratches on the file by the way.

The receptionist contacted the manager and said tough luck. Then to appease me they offered me a deal if I purchased more Botox today. I already paid for the 10 units they owed me and there was no way I was paying them a single dime more!

When I asked to speak with the manager I was told she wasn't available. Funny that the receptionist was just on the phone with her 5 minutes prior to this. I asked if she was at the other location and was told no and that someone would get back to me. No number no name just that someone would get back to me.

I explained that I had taken the time to come all the way up to Kirkland and was told that someone would call me if there was a problem. I even had received and appointment confirmation today. The receptionist essentially just shrugged and said she didn't make the appointment and couldn't help that no one had called.

I have 6 more sessions for Hair Removal and Microderm facials. At this point I am so disgusted with service and lack of overall professionalism that I am seriously considering writing the whole thing off and eating the money I have spent.

The receptionists was rude and I have nothing to show for the time and money I have spent so far.
My advice it to steer clear from this establishment and their other location. You will end up with nothing after you have spent hundreds of dollars and they could care less. This establishment will waste your money and time and will not even take the time to return your calls.

DONT BUY their Groupons for Laser Hair removal....there is a reason they keep selling them thru Groupon...mass fast cash, and nothing for it. These guys have done these Groupons 3 times in just over a year, talk about a cash grab...,and this time they are increasing their 6 sessions to 8....hmmmm, looking for more quick cash from unsuspecting.

The Laser they use does nothing...the laser itself isnt that great (check reviews), thats why they say for any skin type...but on top of that I dont think they are changing the tips. I bought 2 - SIX session packages for them...that is 12 sessions for my legs...guess what...nothing has changed!

I am not a virgin to laser hair removal...and I have the perfect skin type for it. Had my bikini done a few years ago, better laser, Better place...bikini free and clear. Now I have wasted alot of cash and more importantly alot of time.

As far as techs most were good, one I swear was just trained...but the worse is the manager KATY - OMG, this is one self centered, self absorbed, know it all....bad management!

Dont waste your time or money here, there are better places with results...pay a bit more and actually get something for your money!

***UPDATE: 9.26.12 - AURA Laser Skin Care just called my personal cell # to THREATEN that if I didnt change my HONEST review of them that they would take "Action." Are you flippin kidding me...these guys are sooooooo SHADDY!! They mislead customers, then are rude when they are questioned about their service, then they think they can try and STRONG ARM people into changing their reviews. These guys should be happy that I wrote such a tame review of them...I have much more I can say about their "service." And as far as the "client" contacting you because they arent happy....duuhhh, already did that and got Katy, the joke of a manager, telling me I didnt know what I was talking about, kept infering that I was not telling the truth about the service I got...I never complained once, but the first time I did have a concern, I saw their true colors. Dont worry about contacting them if u have a concern or issue, cause they will call you, and probably with a threat. BEWARE!!!!!!!

***As far as them being the "Best of Groupon"...I wonder why....hmmmm, lets ponder....could it be that they sold so many packages, making $$.

Business Response:

Instead of responding to her/his nonsense I'm going to state the facts: Been in business for over 7 years Done thousands of laser hair removal treatments Was voted "Best of Groupon" for 2011 Has successfully served thousands of groupon clients I think our record speaks for itself. And if you look at our reviews we have both happy and some less happy clients. We always strive to resolve any issue with our clients to the best of our ability so I encourage this reviewer to contact us directly at 866.444.AURA Nader

I had a lot of acne bumps on my skin, and nothing ever worked to rid me of them. I no longer have acne, but was left with the scarring and it made my skin very uneven. It is something I was always very self conscious of, and something I wanted treated very badly. I heard about Aura Laser Skin Care, and how they were great with finding the perfect treatments for any type of skin.

I originally went in wanting the FotoFacial procedure, thinking it was the best option for me. At my consultation, I learned that it would not be given I have dark skin. Microdermabrasion was the best option for me, because it would even out my skin tone and texture. I began the procedure, and am already seeing tremendous results.

It is so nice to finally feel confident in my skin again, literally. My skin has a glow, and is looking better than ever! Aura Laser Skin Care is the best skin care facility in Seattle. They are very professional, and provided me with a great experience. I am so happy I chose them!

I have many scars all over my face, but the texture of my skin is even. Its a weird combination, and so nothing I ever tried ever really rid me of the scars. I went to Aura Laser Skin Care, because I heard that they were really good at finding the best skin care procedures for their clients.

When I met with the consultant she recommended I meet with the doctor and he suggested fractional co2 treatment! He said all it will take is one treatment session. Not only am I scar free, I have this natural glow to me. My skin is radiant, and I feel amazing! The professionals at Aura are very nice, and know exactly what they are doing. I am so happy I chose them, and recommend them to all of my friends.

Microdermabrasion was the best thing I have ever done for myself! It smoothed my skin, something nothing I have tried before ever did. I have gone to countless renowned dermatologists, and nothing helped. I heard about Aura Laser Skin Care from my sister, and contacted them immediately.

At the free consultation the workers were very professional, and they were even more so during the actual procedure. My skin is very smooth, and very even. My acne spots are gone, which is great.

Their pricing was very fair, definitely much cheaper than competing skin care places in Seattle. It was also a nice atmosphere to be at. I highly recommend Aura Laser Skin Care, especially for their Microdermabrasion treatment!

As a child, I struggled with severe acne over my face, chest, and back. It was mortifying, so I would always pick at my skin, and use face cremes that ultimately burned my skin. As a result, I was left with severe, permanent, and very noticable acne scars all over my face. I??ve been to a lot of very reputable dermatologists, but none were able to completely rid me of these scars.

I heard of Aura Laser Skin Care from my sister who went to their doctor for Botox and had mentioned to her that they have a fractional CO2 resurfacing laser called the SmartXide. He told her it was state of the art in treating facial scars and deep wrinkles and that it only takes one treatment with a couple of days of downtime. I could not believe what I heard from her so I called Aura to investigate further.

When I spoke with their receptionist on the phone I could tell that they were very professional, and that they cared a lot about satisfying their customers. I had my consultation with the doctor and came for the treatment the next day. On the treatment day they asked me to come in an hour earlier to prep my skin with a numbing agent. I must admit that my main concern was the pain level but the doctor assured me not to worry and that I would not feel anything after I am numbed and boy was he right. The SmartXide treatment took half an hour and it worked absolute wonders! After 2 days of shedding and peeling I am now scar free, and my skin has this natural glow to it. It is truly an amazing feeling
I highly recommend using Aura Laser Skin Care, their fractional SmartXide treatment changed my life! It is truly like a miracle, and I believe anyone with any sort of scarring should use it. Aura Laser Skin Care is most definitely the best place to do so, for it is beyond sterile, professional, and effective!

As a child, I struggled with severe acne over my face, chest, and back. It was mortifying, so I would always pick at my skin, and use face cremes that ultimately burned my skin. As a result, I was left with severe, permanent, and very noticable acne scars all over my face. I??ve been to a lot of very reputable dermatologists, but none were able to completely rid me of these scars.

I heard of Aura Laser Skin Care from my sister who went to their doctor for Botox and had mentioned to her that they have a fractional CO2 resurfacing laser called the SmartXide. He told her it was state of the art in treating facial scars and deep wrinkles and that it only takes one treatment with a couple of days of downtime. I could not believe what I heard from her so I called Aura to investigate further.

My friend referred me to this clinic and I apprehensively decided to take her advice and give it a try. I have been jaded by many medical spas in the past where they have high pressure sales tactics, poor customer service, and most of all a dangerous staff that is uneducated.

My first experience with Aura was over the phone. The esthetician answered all of my questions and gave me prices to a few of the treatments I was interested in. The next day I came in for my complimentary consultation and was pleased to find the staff attentive, professional, and well educated. My consult was over my acne which I have been plagued with since my early teens. They gave me some really good advice for at home skin care. At the time I was skeptical because before this I had tried everything from accutane to all types of expensive treatments and products.

After a few weeks on my new skin care products I started to notice my skin healing and after a few months my skin has cleared up dramatically. My skin has never looked better! They have my trust as a client. I feel 100% confident and safe with their skin care recommendations and treatments they have to offer. Never once have I felt pressured to buy! I have tried a few peels and have been very happy with the results. I love the laser hair removal treatments that is effective, painless and affordable. Their botox is my new best friend. Bye bye unwanted facial lines, scars, hair, and acne.

Thank you to the staff at Aura Laser Skin Care.

Aura Laser Skin Care uses predatory sales methods that take advantage of the naive and vulnerable! Judging by the reviews on Yelp.com it also takes advantage of more experienced adults.

My daughter went to Kirkland Aura Laser Skin Care last week to take advantage of the "free evaluation" for removing acne scars. She already had an appointment scheduled with her dermatologist, but an acquaintance of hers told her this was a "really good place" so she wanted to check it out. She went to the Kirkland office and talked with "Jessica" (no last names are given out for any of the employees there, not even the manager). One of the first things she was asked was "How much money do you have?" Before my daughter left the place, she had been talked into signing a $1000 contract for a "special package" that she had to take advantage of and pay the majority of immediately. This coincidentally was the exact amount that wiped out the savings she had been carefully collecting over the past year working a minimum wage job.

My daughter insisted on trying to take care of this situation by herself. She got in contact with Jessica the next business day to say she had changed her mind. Jessica said she didn't have time to see my daughter for another 4 days. (I assume reducing the ability to use the law regarding buyer's remorse.) By that time at least, my daughter had been talked into letting me come along. Jessica was very sweet, very smooth, but said "It is just company policy that we do not refund payment for contracts once they have been signed. We would not be able to stay in business if we did refund it." (You mean like legitimate businesses do?) She showed me the spot on the contract where is so stipulated. As I got angrier she remained calm and sweet, and had a well practiced, smooth response to everything I said. She is an experienced con-artist.

Jessica had never given my daughter a copy of the agreement she signed, so I asked for one. The office "didn't have a copy machine" but they would make one available if I came back in 24 hours. My husband got on the phone and asked for Jessica's last name, but was told it was company policy to not give out last names. He asked the name and contact information of her manager and the owner. He was given a first name only of the manager (no contact information) just the promise that he would get a phone call from this person within 72 hours. He asked for the name of the owner. Jessica said that it was a "silent owner" who prefers not to be identified. My daughter feels devastated. She has learned a lesson I am sure she will remember. But I hope to also teach her that making a mistake that leaves you victimized does not mean you give up and just let it happen.

I have never filed a complaint about a business before, never written a review like this. I don't know if the sales practices at Aura are within legal limits, but they are definitely way outside of ethical. I will be pursuing a report to the Better Business Bureau and whatever else needs to be done as soon as possible. Poking around on the internet, I discover that Aura Laser Skin Care is owned by Venus International LLC. According to the Washington Secretary of State, Venus International LLC (UBI Number 602471276) is located at the same address as the Bothell Aura. The headquarters of Venus are in Mumbai, India. The local agents are Nader Issa and Katayoun (aka ??Katy?) Ghaemi.

I am extremely satisfied with the purchase i made through Groupon to have fotofacial treatments at Aura.
The staff were very professional and accommodating. i arrived 30 mins late to my appt due to my error and was still taken in for my initial treatment with no rush by the technician to get me out the door as i thought they would.

My pictures were taken prior to the appointment and i noticed a difference in my skin within 10 days after the fotofacial. I had the second treatment i had still better results and although not complete diminishing of the pigment on my face but i was told it would take 4 or more to achieve complete clearance.

I did buy a special they offered to me and am very satisfied with what i see.
Kudos to Aura staff for taking good care of me!

I used the Groupon special to do two laser resurfacing treatments on my face. I am almost 50 and have wrinkles and sun damaged skin. The first time, the lady I had was very businesslike and did the treatment, briefly explaining what she was doing and gave me detailed instructions of how to care for my face afterwards. I saw minimal effects but she said it often took more than one treatment to see lastly effects. The process itself was tolerable and it did look better, but the results were farly short-lived (about 2 weeks max.)

I came back for the second treatment a month later and was informed that I would have better results if I had stayed out of the sun in between treatments. I had gotten some minimal sun exposure a week earlier. So I re-booked for a week later and left. When I returned, I had a different nurse who didn't give me much information at all, rushed through the treatment and left a pretty bad burn on my nostral. Overall, I didn't see any marked improvement. In fact, the burn scabbed over and now I have a small scar.

So all I can say is that before you buy the groupon, ask them what they think is going to happen in one treatment. Also, make sure you get enough information about follow up. The people are nice, but I didn't find them professional. Perhaps another few treatmetns would have made a difference.

Business Response:

Dear Jayne the WhisperNG laser skin resurfacing is a progressive treatment and this was explained to you at the time of consult prior to your treatment and was also listed on your Groupon. This means that most people will need more than 2 treatments to see marked improvement. Only treatment that can produce pronounced results with 1 session is the SmartXide DOT Fractional CO2. Nevertheless you should have noticed improvement. We looked up the alias Jayne B to locate you on our client list but there was no match. Please feel free to call us at 1.866.444.AURA to setup a followup with doctor Alvord and in order for us to assist you. Regards Katy Issa

Aura Laser has literally changed my life. I began getting treatments a few months ago for very severe acne; it was the worst I've had in years, painful and unsightly. I went to doctors who said they couldn't do anything unless I wanted to go on strong doses of antibiotics, and even those would be temporary and not take away redness or scarring. With the persistance and skill of Katy, she has cleared my skin up completely, and it looks better than it ever has (I've had acne my entire life). Even in the first week I could see improvements, but the change currently is astonishing: The pimples are gone, the redness gone, and scars I've had for years are dissappearing. I cannot even begin to thank Katy and the staff for all of their help. The treatments are ALL worth it. If you are suffering from acne or any skin issues GO to Aura Laser. I recommend them most highly to anyone!!! My treatments have included microdermabrasian, acne light, medications I use topically, photofacial, and resurfacing laser treatments. You will get results, and Katy makes the entire experience a pleasant one. the nurses really care about you and take the time to do everything to get the. best possible results for my skin. They follow up wuth me and i see the Dr to check and make sure the progress and my skin needs are met. I feel they take a genuine interest in my skin needs and leave the clinic satisfied that all that can be done to help my skin has been done at each session.Thank you Thank you Aura Laser!!

As I was excited to use a coupon I had purchased and arrived at Aura, I was greeted warmly by a front desk woman. I began filling out paper work and she let me know the nurse would be with me shortly. Soon a brunette woman approached the front desk lady and began giving her instructions. I assumed at this time the brunette must of been a manger. I continued to fill out my paper work but was astonished by what I overheard the manager saying to the front desk woman. She treated her subordinate with little respect, no patience, and showed a huge temper as she said "if I see you writing down one more thing I am going to punch your knuckles in." She continued to talk loudly as me and another woman waited 5 ft away. Soon I was taken back by "the nurse." It was the brunette! I found it quite interesting how she quickly changed her attitude with me and tried to treat me with respect after all I had overheard. I learned during my visit that the nurse was also the manager. I am not sure as of yet if the treatment will be successful. The managing nurse was rushed. I left and had to call my husband right away because I have never experience a manger talking so rudely and out of control in my life. I am a business woman that manages and deals with people everyday. This is no way to treat a employee or customer! I have learned no matter the situation there is always a way to communicate in a proper way. No one should be yelled at nor threatened violence for anything in the work place no matter how big or small the situation is.
