I am officially done. I have asked at my last few appointments about my excess Botox units I purchased in advance. For over a year I’ve asked at every appointment. I knew I had 8. I finally got a girl who looked properly in the system and she told me they are now expired and there was nothing I can do to get them back. I am not coming back and telling everyone else about my experience.

I had BBL treatments to face and chest with great results. Francesca was amazing, explained everything she was doing and spent time ensuring I knew how to follow up. Everyone is polite and professional. I had a minor issue that was resolved in a timely and efficient manner by Taylor. Highly recommend.

I have been looking for the perfect place to try cool sculpting and Botox. After tirelessly searching online and calling around to find the perfect place, I finally hit the jackpot. I immediately knew I found the right place when I had the pleasure of speaking to a kind and patient woman at the front desk named Taylor. She was so easy-going while I was asking a ton of questions and she made the process so simple when booking. I felt so comfortable and pleased with the customer service I received that I knew the rest of my experience would be amazing as well. Shout out to Taylor for being awesome!

She was very nice to chat to and I was deciding where I would want to get some of my work done and after speaking with Angie on the phone it made me want to go to this place from now on. I will certainly be booking my services here.

Beware of quotes. The same thing as the first review happened to me with cool sculpting. I was told I was getting more than I did. Was talked into one session and told it would work, which did absolutely nothing. Wasted 1500. Update after post- Their follow up was a call saying they are calling to follow up. No solution..hopefully they communicate with sales team to not sell a package that will not give results.

Very poor customer service team. I have been reaching out to them for couple months regarding the treatments i have been receiving. There customer representative always tells me that they can’t help me but will forward my concern to the specific department and they will give me a call. I have been waiting for weeks to hear from them and never heard anything back after reaching out so many times. Be careful before investing your time and money. I am regretting being there customer.

I had read reviews to not trust this company and within 15 minutes into my free consult I can see why. I did not want or need anything other than laser hair removal on my chin. I have no hair anywhere on my face, but I was being pushed to purchase for my upper lip too and when I refused, they quoted me an even HIGHER price than if I’d have signed up for the additional service I don’t even need!!! Total scam, way overpriced and I would never recommend this place.

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 am very disappointed with Ideal Image. My contract expired sometime mid 2021 and i had stopped the treatment because of Covid everywhere.

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.

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..

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.
