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.

I absolutely LOVE this location so much!!! And Francesca was amazing to work with! I did Cool Sculpting and was able to lose 20 pounds so far!!! I am going back to get more done around my muffin top! I have multiple sclerosis and my fatigue makes it hard for me to work out, but I am trying my best to eat better. Eat less-move more is my motto, but I am VERY grateful that Cool sculpting can give me a boost in my weight loss journey.

Francesca was very friendly and knowledgeable. She helped me review my previous results and then chose the next best step moving forward based on my own personal goals. She didn't try to upsell me anything but instead just focused on what would and wouldn't work for me. The facility is clean and has a comforting feel. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking to improve their current physical condition.

I had signed up fo cool sculpting during the COVID deal, where I was supposed to receive a 36 month interest free loan. I selected and signed for the 36 month interest free loan that my consultant had told me to. However that is not what I received. I have now been charged a ton of interest to my account. I honestly only tried cool sculpting because of the deal and would not have tried it otherwise. I had very minimal results with 8 sessions and am losing more with my exercise routine that I had started many months after my last treatment. If I had received the deal, I probably would be okay with not losing much, but I have tried contacting ideal image through the location and their consultant at least 6 times to have this fixed. They keep saying I have to contact my loan borrow even when I tell them how my loan borrow tells me to contact them. I have left emails and messages and still have not received a call back. I am very dissatisfied with my experience because I am having to pay more than I was quoted and I did not lose inches or the 20-30 pounds that my consultant had told me I would lose. I had only lost about 3-4 pounds and .5 inch from my 8 sessions of cool sculpting.

Inconsistent results as each time I have an appointment I have a different girl who treats the areas differently. Also they schedule furthest available time and don't have appointments available so you push your treatment back even further. Over booked and unstaffed by the sounds of it because they have called me two different times to reschedule me, further pushing back my over due apt to get the optimal results. After this I actually got burned, would never recommend this place to anyone!!

Just got my first ever lip injections today at Ideal Image with Terina. They took care of me A-Z. They made me feel comfortable and right at home, and they were happy to answer any questions I had. The staff is so friendly! The numbing cream that they used was amazing, I did not feel a thing! Totally painless. Terina listened to exactly what I wanted to see, and produced amazing results, just what I asked for. She was a doll to work with and I can’t wait to go back!

I give Katie a 10 plus! She is sweet, professional and very knowledgeable. My only issue is with the corporation, the corporation that thinks one sale is good for all. Well it’s not. the price of 15.00, Per unit for Botox is terrible. Yes Katie explained the amazing 8.90 per unit. But it doesn’t work for all. At least 10.00 per unit for people who can’t do the 250.00 down and then the cost of the 8.90 per unit. Even though I really like Katie I will seek Botox elsewhere, unless the corporation people can make it affordable for all. Sincerely Cherie C

This review pertains to their HQ, not the Albany location.The sales representatives of this organization are misleading and dishonest. I was assured I was be able to get an appointment prior to my moving date and that was not the case. I now live hours away making it nearly impossible to get to my appointment. Calling customer service doesn't help because they refuse to help with a refund based on contract contraints even if their sales representatives breach the contract. What they are doing is a scam.

two stars are for the first person who scheduled me for my consult, she was lovely! i am very interested in laser hair/fillers but this company will take advantage of you. the consult itself was almost embarrassing. the representative was uneducated in her field and was honestly a little rude. their scripting pushes sixteen sessions for laser which is almost twice as much than anyone would need. when asked to quote without the package, i was met with confusion and dismissive words. the entire time i was extremely friendly and that seemed to just annoy her, the consultation lasted about thirty minutes and was just a very belittling experience. none of the discounts previously discussed were applicable. i am prepared to invest thousands of dollars in myself but not with company.

I am obsessed with how amazing Katie’s work is! So I am pretty new to the whole filler thing. I got my lips done less than a year ago by a plastic surgeon that really did a bad job. I started to notice that my top lip was uneven and I needed to get more filler so I made an appointment at Ideal Image with Katie, And OMG!! She was super sweet and professional. She really took her time and is a true perfectionist. It is really hard to find someone that does a good job at filler especially in this area. I took a chance and just made the appointment and I’m really happy that I did. I wanted a nice full lip and she even made my border and shape perfect! Absolutely no complaints and I highly recommend her! Amazing!!!!!!

The staff was friendly and professional unfortunately the result from the botox are not good. I had purchased 75 units at a discounted price which was more than I have ever gotten. The results for the 1st doses for the 11 did nothing at all. 3 months later I received the remaining units. Against my better judgement I allowed her to inject in the areas above my eyebrows. I told her the reason I did not want her to put the botox in those areas as it caused my eyes to be puffy and eyebrows to look low and heavy...I have had better results getting 40 units.

Coolsculpting did not work at all. Not even a little. At my follow up appointment in Albany (Colonie), NY, the staff could not find my before pictures to compare with the after photo. They said they’d get back to me and have not returned my calls in weeks. My results were consistent with ratings online. I will call corporate and join the other reports to BBB if I do not hear some resolution given they lost my photos. 11/23/20: I have received no correspondence despite my attempt to call twice more since this review was published and the company replied they would reach out to me. Have not yet heard back from anyone. Awaiting a return phone call from the manager Nicole. 12/7- Trued calling again, still no return phone call.

I had couple of treatments in the spa, from Botox, Coolsculping to Ultherapy. The staff attention and knowledge about the treatments are very well tune to your needs and health. The friendly environment and follow ups after treatments show how they care about you to achieve the results that you want. It is a great spa of high specialize staff is a great choice to go.
