"After waiting the prescribed two months to see the "maximum result", I have absolutely no difference. My body measures the same and looks the same. I have" spoken with the regional manager on 3 occasions and he has promised a refund but doesn't call me back. I'm still waiting for the refund. I would not return for future services.

"I love Anew and have had chemical peels, laser hair removal, lip filler, spray tans, massages, and facials there. Amber is amazing and makes you feel comfortable" and welcomed which goes a long way for a medical spa. Plus she is a great esthetician. I have been to many other spas and around Indy and so glad I found ANew.

Hair removal

Removing unwanted hair can prove an inevitable reality for women and many men. Shaving works but is often time-consuming, resulting in nicks, cuts and the inevitable regrowth of hair. You can avoid all of this hassle by finding the right hair removal method.

Hair Removal

Unwanted hair: We tweeze, pluck, wax, shave, thread and epilate it. We spend countless hours and hundreds — maybe thousands — of dollars on hair removal tools.

Customer said had bad experience with this company. States that treatments are so painful that she had to have them stop the service and she left her appointment crying. Member signed a contract and they will not let her get out of her contract. Member said she was told that if she didn't come to her appointment that she would be charge 50.00 Member state she didn't realize that contract was so strict and it wasn't explain to her all these different restrictions.

My experience at
Portsmouth Hair Removal Services Provider Name Locked
is always pleasurable. I went in for a hair cut, and as I so often do, I express to
Portsmouth Hair Removal Services Provider Name Locked
that I need a new look. He gives me big smile and tells me he knows just what style I need, and I always come away with a style that is perfect for me. It is remarkable how
Portsmouth Hair Removal Services Provider Name Locked
understands his clients and knows what they want we say "I want my hair to do this," or "look like that." I have been going to
Portsmouth Hair Removal Services Provider Name Locked
for more than five years, and I can honestly say I would not go anywhere else for my styling needs!

I have purchased several packages from
Portsmouth Hair Removal Services Provider Name Locked
. I was very satisfied with their price, etc. that is why I continued to use this company. However, I purchased a package for laser hair removal and a massage on 8/26 that has not yet been redeemed. I was supposed to have an appointment tomorrow and usually receive a phone call to confirm. I did not recieve a phone call so I tried to call them. Their mailbox is full. I then looked on the internet to see if I had the wrong number. I found a news article that stated that they just closed their doors. I wonder how many people are also out of their hard earned money? I have filed a complaint with the BBB.

My experience with this lady is very poor. I had electrolysis when I was in my late twenties, and it was very successful. I went to a business in
Portsmouth Hair Removal Services Provider Name Locked
,
Portsmouth Hair Removal Services Provider Name Locked
as that is my home town. It took many appointments over a long period of time to complete the area, this is normal. I add this to state that I do have some knowledge of how the process and procedures are supposed to work.
I needed some small amount of clean up, also normal for my age and the time that has elapsed since my first hair removal. That clean up should have been just a few visits. I noticed that the hair was not being permanently removed and that the "charge" or current that is injected into the hair follicle was not as noticeable as it had been in my past experience,
Then I remembered being told years before that she purposely does not put the current at a high setting (that is what kills the hair follicle) so that she can keep her customers returning. My next appointment I asked to turn it up. She was a bit disgruntled but did as I asked. When this session was complete she essentially dismissed me and did not ask for a next appointment.
As for her punctuality, yes, she tries to stay on time, but my appointments moved several minutes, mostly to continue treatment on a lady that continued to come for the same small area (I was told a 1 follicle treatment). I wish I knew who this was because I would like to inform her that she is being cheated and wasting her money. Electrolysis works, and works well. if you keep coming back for the same follicle for more than 2 treatments something is wrong.
On a personal note, she is a negative person, seems to think she is smarter than all others, I say this because she said critical things about other people, insinuating that they were not intelligent. I had a very poor experience here and have never finished what I needed because I cannot find another business to try. My recommendation is stay away!

I've gone to her for over 30 years. She really keeps up on her education. She knows a lot about color and I wouldn't trust anybody else to color and cut my hair. She's the owner and she's the only one there.

There are mainly 2 ladies that run the shop and they’re very nice. They make me feel comfortable. There’s a male and female doing the service, and they make me feel really comfortable. The prices are very fair and competitive. The service works. I will definitely use them again in the future.

I have had the same treatments elsewhere and I found their service to be sub-par. The staff was not as professional, the equipment was not as nice and the treatments did not last as long. The staff was nice but I would not go back.

BUYER BEWARE!It is only my wish to give you my truthful experience with
Portsmouth Hair Removal Services Provider Name Locked
Portsmouth Hair Removal Services Provider Name Locked
Electrology/Smooth skin by
Portsmouth Hair Removal Services Provider Name Locked
,and hopefully save you the grief and wasted money I have incurred!

I started seeing
Portsmouth Hair Removal Services Provider Name Locked
Portsmouth Hair Removal Services Provider Name Locked
in August 2013 to have some facial hair removed.
I initially started seeing her at her house on Walnut,then saw her a few times at her newer location 21196 Commercial Dr, Mundelein, IL 60060.
I initially was seeing
Portsmouth Hair Removal Services Provider Name Locked
once a week,and after a few months got to see her every other week.
Once I started seeing her every 3 weeks,I noticed that she would almost every time,cancel our appt.at last minute due to some personal emergency.To make matters worse,she wouldnt be able to reschedule me sometimes,for almost 10 days.
Portsmouth Hair Removal Services Provider Name Locked
would tell me that I should take a disposable razor to remove the hairs that were bothering me???I thought this was a very odd thing for my electrologist to advise me to do,considering the hair growth it will cause....BUT! it isn't an odd thing to tell me to do,if she is merely trying to create more work for herself in the future,WHICH she definately was.
Then I noticed somthing funny,when I would see
Portsmouth Hair Removal Services Provider Name Locked
and pay her in cash,she would be available for my next appointment,if I payed with my visa she would cancel my next appt at the last minute and not be available for 7-10 days.
EVERYTIME!
I started to notice pitting scars above my lip and on my chin,that I am certain
