Anyone have any experience with American Laser Centers? .......................
After 7 yrs of treatments (Candela GentleLase, Lightshear,
Palomar IPL) I have a lot of experience and still a lot of hair which
should be gone by now... but no luck. Yes I am satisfied of the difference, but I could have bought a house, with cash, after all this time...
If you continue to post here, the quoted information above would be helpful if you would put it in your signature. Then, we can see what brought you here in the first place. It helps us answer questions without shuffling through old posts. Include specifics about your hair density, thickness and color.
There have been a pattern of complaints from consumers over the years with American Laser Centers on this site as well as other sites. The FTC (Federal Trade Commission)
has an area on their website devoted to consumers that have specific complaints about commpanies that may overpromise to keep clients coming back for more. It sounds like you did not go there? but rather another place? GentleLase is a good laser. What area's did you pursue? Skin color? Hair color? Hair thickness? Please offer more information. You may not have been a good candidate for light-based treatments and someone should have told you so. More details would certainly be helpful.
Seven years is a long tme to pursue hair reduction and still not be satisfied. If the FTC see's a pattern of complaints from consumers about a certain business, then they may decide to pursue an investigation. One complaint will not set anythng in motion.
Is there a reason why you have spent all this time and money over the last seven years without seeing results? There are certain critical issues and behaviors that must be in place for hair removal/ reduction to succeed.
