How to Research Laser Hair Removal Reviews in Pittsburgh
To help you find laser hair removal reviews that you can trust, we have some suggestions where you can find and research the best that Pittsburgh has to offer.
Reviews on businesses, professionals, and services are extremely helpful. Not foolproof – but they can give you the gist or the essence of a place of business and the people who work there.
If a business or service has been operating long enough, it has a digital footprint.
Doctors, restaurants, laser franchises all have been reviewed. Reviews are everywhere.
Sometimes, you just have to dig a little to discover the truth.
At Happel Laser in Pittsburgh, we have garnered some great reviews over a long period of time.
Our medical office was established in 1986 when the internet and reviews didn’t even exist.
It was just word-of-mouth. Consumer Reports magazine was the other option.
Today, on-line reviews are nearly the equivalent of those. It’s just that there are recommendations from people whom you don’t know.
That brings up the issue of truth and trust.
Ah, there’s the rub.
President Reagan said, “Trust but verify.”
Reliable reviews are one of the best ways to verify.

Reliability, expertise and professionalism
These qualities come through in our reviews Google and YELP reviews.
Service and experience are taking on heightened importance.
Not buying packages is like a get-out-of-jail-free card. Not pushing packages with a hard sell is less sales oriented. That’s what you would expect in a true doctor’s office.
Laser franchises use hard sell tactics to push packages. Packages lock you in whether you are satisfied or not. The laser franchises are the bane of respectable laser surgeon’s offices.
More user experiences and large numbers of reviews go hand-in-hand with an office’s long term success.
“It takes 20 years to build a reputation and five minutes to ruin it.” —Warren Buffett
Be careful of laser hair removal places that:
- Boast of their productivity (millions of laser treatments done across the country)
- Are negatively reviewed for giving inappropriate care (treating blond, gray or red hair)
- Are criticized in reviews for self-interest over patient welfare (making the sale)
- Are not held to ethical standards (like the Hippocratic oath)
A little healthy skepticism—call it a built-in BS detector—might keep you very well keep you from being suckered by unethical laser businesses that are often in financial trouble.
“The greater-fool theory keeps these places alive,” Dr. John Happel says.
“Why, you may ask? Because gullible people get suckered into buying a service because of advertising and marketing that has not proven true.
The challenge is in getting the word out to people before that happens.
Consumer internet reviews are one of those tools that everyone can use.
Trustworthiness of Hair Removal Reviews in Pittsburgh
YELP and Google are the giants in the consumer reviewing industry.
What about the other review sites?
The trustworthiness of Merchant’s Circle, Angie’s List, Judy’s Book, Foursquare, City Search, Yellow Pages, other “unbiased” ratings services is called into question in a study by Consumer Reports.
Angie’s List requires a membership fee. Even submitting your email to a company for a free trial is a turn off for most. Advertising with them requires that the business offer all of the members a discount.
Merchant Circle is another review site that can shortchange its readers. Some sites volume of advertising makes them tough to search at all. It doesn’t offer a way to remove or edit reviews unless a business is registered with them.
The Consumer Reports publication is not only one taking issue with these consumer review sites.
To what degree can we trust them?
“The best way to find out if you can trust somebody is to trust them.” –Ernest Hemingway
I might have to disagree with the words, best way, Ernest.
So by using consumer reviews to find the best laser hair removal office in Pittsburgh, the winner is …
You, me, us.
The bottom line is when choosing a laser hair removal office, keep your eye on the ball.
Research your options because laser hair removal really is an investment in yourself. Look at the overall review numbers. The feeling you get. Trust your gut. Take reviews with a grain of salt.
The fact is that lying simply doesn’t pay off.
The reason is that when a professional office, business or service fabricates reviews or stories that just don’t hold up to close scrutiny, they will get found out sooner or later.
That’s why we have done very well performing laser hair removal in the same location for over seventeen years and have the reviews to prove it.
Trust is built and maintained by many small actions over time.
It’s the multitude of reviews …then italicize... Over time… A long time ... That mean something.
Trust is built by consistency.
Consistent service and professionalism promote:
- great trust
- great results
- great reviews
