Unbelievable Laser Hair Removal Discounts? – Happel Laser

Laser hair removal is a fantastic technological advance.

But like all things, one has to consider …”Where do I get the best results at the least cost.”

Nationally franchised laser hair removal chains advertise heavily for unbelievable reductions of 50-65% off of packages through free “Giveaways” and direct mailings stating “You have a Sweepstakes Worth 50% Off of a Package”.  Beware of these package scams.  In the final analysis, is there really a discount in buying these heavily discounted packages?  If it seems too good to be true… well you know the rest.

Laser hair removal forums and real reviews of people who have purchased these package deals tell of high pressured sales pitches for expensive contracts where people later have “Buyer’s Remorse” after being seduced into buying packages that they later regret having purchased.  Much like a tattoo.  People often state that they felt coerced into buying these package deals and complain of unused treatments or unsatisfactory results that they are contractually and legally obligated to continually pay. They feel trapped and cannot get out of their contract because of legal reasons.  For more details of these real life bad experiences, please refer to www. Hairtell.com and Yelp reviews which tell of people who have experienced this and who have learned this lesson the hard way.  Just type in the national franchise’s name of the laser hair removal company in their search box of these review sites to learn the truth.

Before getting locked into a long term contract from a smooth talking salesperson, consider the facts. Laser hair removal is a medical procedure and should be done in a medical facility in a doctor’s office with a doctor present on the premises during your procedure.  If you settle for a spa like setting or less, without direct medical supervision, red flags should go up.  Run away.

If you feel that you are being pressured to commit to a package deal to save money, walk away and consider your options.  A laser is a medical device and unfortunately regulations have not kept up with the demand for laser hair removal.  Consumer guides are available and should be carefully researched before choosing your laser hair removal facility.  Bad results and buyer’s remorse often are a result of choosing a facility as a result of a slick radio or web site ad without doing research into reviews of people who have been treated by a particular franchised laser hair removal “mill”. With laser hair removal, the old adage … “Let the buyer beware or “caveat emptor” is especially noteworthy.   For more information, please call our physician’s office, at 724-969-0600 for more information.
