They sold me a very expensive package for laser hair removal and told me touch ups were free. Then when I bought my second area they told me touch ups were a small fee around $50. I called to get a touch up and they told me it would be hundreds of dollars after already spending thousands on “lifetime hair removal”.

I have been going to Ideal Image in Albany for yearrsssss getting laser hair removal done‼️‼️ The results are ab-so-lutely amazing‼️‼️ I keep going back and back for more areas‼️ I highly recommend Ideal to everyone‼️‼️ The staff here in Albany are incredibly nice‼️ So sweet & caring‼️ & never having to shave is one of the most satisfying things in the world‼️ All that time spent in the shower weekly just to have pricklys a few days later compared to a quick 30 minute laser session once every other month & no pricklys ever‼️ No more checking before going out & having to shave quick‼️ No more stress, free your mind with laser hair removal & be all smooth all the time‼️

Ms. Taylor Quon, you were the most professional person I had the privilege of speaking to in a very long time. I wish you could be a clone and placed around the world. I asked you to do something for me, and you did not hesitate. I wanted to send you flowers or a fruit basket you, said, no thank you. If you ever change your mind, I will send it to you because you have no idea how you helped me. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

I am very disappointed with Ideal Image. My contract expired sometime mid 2021 and i had stopped the treatment because of Covid everywhere. Like any other business, thought they would extend the time or at least inform that my contract was ending. Neither did they extend nor did they inform about contract expiring. Never doing business with them again.

Be careful of this place. They will bait and switch on you. They show pictures and sell false promises and cannot deliver. The rep. called me sold me a package for cool sculpting to freeze away fat from my stomach. When I showed up for the procedure the nurse told me that the rep sold me the wrong package and what I paid for could not cover the diamond shape procedure and I would have to pay more money. I told the nurse that I am not spending anymore money, so she should do the procedure on my lower stomach only I had the procedure done and was told that it takes four months to see results, I noticed that almost four months there were no changes to my stomach. I went for a follow up and the nurse asked me if I was happy with the result and I told her no. She tried to sell me another package telling me that I need to pay more to see results. I was disgusted and very upset because I spent over $2000 and my stomach was still looking the same. I was dismissed without any further resolution. I am out over $2000 and my stomach is still the same. This is to let others know that they should be careful before spending their money with this company. They will give you one price and when you show up, they will try to sell you more, they are very deceptive.

I never thought I would go a day without shaving my face. I've been struggling with PCOS for over 20 years and the facial hair was putting a toll on my self confidence. Thanks to ideal image I can go 3 days without any new growth. Just in a few spots and only a few hairs in those spots. I've only had about 8 treatments so far and the results are amazing.

My daughter had her first appointment for laser for partial facial hair removal a few weeks ago. She felt the technician helping her made the process very smooth, working with her patiently to get her acclimated to the first session. She is hoping to get that technician each time! I am also hoping the laser technique works in the long term, as my daughter has been struggling with thick hair on her face/jaw area which has been a genetic issue in our family. We are hoping to continue a long term working relationship with Ideal Image!

FYI. BEWARE... If you sign up and change your mind they still make you pay for the services. I went through a funding company, and they are fine with releasing me from the contract, but Ideal Image will not release me, they said even if the funding company release me I still have to pay them. Because it is on the contract, now take into consideration you are on a zoom consultation and obviously you do not have time to read 14 pages of legal stuff. I am sure the staff at the Albany locations is great, my upset is with corporate and their poor service, by pressuring people to a contract when they no longer want the service..

Then I met Katie, we created an instant bond. She was so non judgmental and explained everything thing to me. I really felt safe and welcome. My first treatment was a job well done. I saw results on my first treatment. The clinic is very clean and follow all Covid guidelines. They’re all friendly. I recommend them 100%. Thanks Katie and Ideal.

Please read before you come here or sign any contract. Ideal image . I am very upset and I have been cheated. I did not finish all the sessions covered by my package with them and still have 2 more sessions left and I was not able to get them because I got pregnant. They told me to call back after the baby is born,. After 10 months I called and to schedule an apt they told me that I have to pay extra money because my contract with them is expired and I have to pay a deductible or I can not have any treatment. The deductible was not a small number. They told me when your contact is over all You have to pay is $20 for life time and now when I called they said your copay is $93 for full face. I paid a lot of money and they collected money for sessions that I never received and now they ask for more.

Please read before you come here or sign any contract with IDEAL image. I am really disappointed and I feel that I have been cheated. I came all the way from NYC to Albany to do retouch because I did not finish all the sessions covered by my package with IDEAL image I still have one or two more sessions remaining and I was not able to get them because I had major surgery. After I finished my last session, the employee asked me, when do you like to schedule your next visit. I told them not to schedule me because I will have surgery and I will not be able to schedule any visits for one year. The employee never mentioned anything about my contract and that I will lose my last one or two sessions if my contract got expired. After one year I called and scheduled an appointment and two minutes before my session begins they came and told me that I have to pay extra money because my contract with them is expired and I have to pay a deductible or I can not have the session. The deductible was not a small number. I paid a lot of money and they collected money for sessions that I never received and now they ask for more. Be careful before you come here

Today's session was exceptionally painful. The first cool sculpting session was painful but after 10 minutes I was numb and could relax. This time the pain lasted through the entire treatment on my left side. I almost hit the button to have the machine turned off, but it's so expensive I didn't want to throw all that money away. I have a very high pain tolerance so this really, really hurt.

Francesca was wonderful—I am very impressed with the professionalism of this first experience at Ideal Image. The women at the front desk were also very friendly, helpful to me and understanding from the crazy day I was having. As being a local salon owner, it is always important to me to acknowledge when you enter a business with wonderful front desk customer service as they are the “face to the place”. I have received 8 laser treatments previously at a different location (not Ideal Image) before starting completely over and & I can definitely say it is a complete different experience. I am very pleased to have had Francesca. She is a sweetheart, very knowledgeable and her professionalism was exceptional. Looking forward to my next treatment and additional services that I cannot wait to try! Thank you Ideal Image[Albany]!

Although it was not the nurses fault I was very displeased with this entity. I canceled two other appointments to make sure that I made it to my appointment tonight and upon my arrival I was told they weren’t able to treat me as I did not follow guidelines for pre-treatment. I was never told there was restrictions prior to coming there today. This is definitely something that should be explained prior to coming to our first appointment.

This was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. My quality of life has increased immensely by not having to shave all the time. You see results after the first session. This summer has been so nice not having to stress about making sure my armpits, bikini area, and legs are shaved. It is so nice to have the extra time and the piece of mind that I’m not hairy. Francesca is one of my favorite nurses. She was super knowledgeable and explained the process to me to ensure I most out of my laser package. She made sure to go thoroughly over each section and that no spots are missed. Even thought they are using the laser in personal areas I felt completely comfortable the entire time. I highly recommend and wish I decided to do this sooner.
