Since moving to Austin last year I have been looking for a good Medi-Spa. I used to go to a fabulous place in Seattle called Calidora and have not been able to find a comparable place to go for facials, various treatments and injectables since moving. However, I finally found my go-to Medi-Spa here in Austin! I logged on to the web to look for nearby medi-spas and RSVPed to a Spring Party at Beautiful Solutions since they are right down the street from me. In the meantime I also purchased a GroupOn for Botox for Beautiful Solutions as well.
The party was a BLAST; they had live music, appetizers and refreshments, drawings for product and much more. There were product representatives in each room demonstrating their various products and offering very generous specials. By the time I had left that night I had won a chemical peel (value $150), an IPL hand treatment (value $150), Skin Medica sunscreen (value $45) and a Skin Medica C & E cream (value $45)! I also purchased some Juvederm, the Skin Medica Lightening System and TNS treatment at huge discounts. (All at about 1/2 - 1/3 off)
I made my appointment last week for the Botox, Juvederm and IPL (which I had respectively pre-purchased and won) They were amazing! I had a dental block for the injections by Cindy, who was was extremely gentle and accommodating. After that first Cindy did the Botox, then Trish, who is very talented, did the Juvederm injections. I immediately looked natural and like my old (or should say YOUNG) self. YES, when you get Botox, it can hurt a little AND bleed - you are getting injections! But they gave me some arnica to apply and I did not have one bruise later. The IPL on my hands worked too! Cindy walked me through the treatment as I had never done this before, nor probably would have if I hadn't won the treatment. The laser zaps those sun spots and they disappear after a few days. Amazing!
While the party was so fun and winning great prizes was great, I would still review Beautiful Solutions as excellent based on the service and talent of the staff alone.
For my part I highly recommend Beautiful Solutions! The prices are reasonable, the staff is friendly and professional, the spa is clean and the treatments are superbly done. I am so happy to have found them and they have earned a new customer for life.
I got my lips done here about a week ago and they look amazing! The woman who did them, Trisha, was very kind and accommodating. I had never had my lips done and was afraid of looking like a duck, but Trisha injected me little by little and she let me look in the mirror periodically to make sure they weren't getting too large. I'll definitely be back for more. My friends have taken notice to my new look, too. My lips look so natural that my friends are unable to tell what is different, but one of them said that my face looks "more complete and feminine" than it used to! I don't understand these negative reviews, the Beautiful Solutions staff is great and the service is impeccable! 5 stars!
I called to make an appt and Penny who answered the phone (very nice, btw) told me that as of Jan 1, the state of Texas is making customers of any injectable service pay a "doctor" an additional one-time $50 annual fee before you can have the licensed professional inject you with Botox, etc. Doesn't matter if you've been getting injectables for 5 years, doesn't matter if you've been getting injectables for 5 years from the same person, a new state law says you must pay some doctor 50 bucks first, to say hello to you, look at your face for a minute, get his approval for the year and THEN you go back to the person who will actually inject you.
It's not technically Beautiful Solutions fault, mind you, it's the really fault of this greedy state who has found yet another new avenue to rob the citizen when they go to a med spa. HOWEVER, I'm giving a low rating because I do feel that Beautiful Solutions should deduct this alleged fee if you bought a Groupon for this service in 2013. Not really fair that they were aware of this new law change and didn't disclose this information in the Groupon's fine print. Unfortunately, that's not being offered here-- only the surprise of it all. That's not cool.
I do like Beautiful Solutions, very much, but I don't like the idea that I have to pay, without warning, some large hidden fee. Just preposterous.
UPDATE: I just spent some time calling around to other med spas, plastic surgeon's and dermatologist's offices in the area and NONE of which I spoke with are charging this so-called "$50 annual one-time fee." Yes, a new law has been passed where a certain type of licensed practitioner has to meet you briefly first, but these other med spas and medical offices I spoke with are not passing on any kind of additional fee to their customers regarding this law. And that makes proper sense-- no customer/client should be responsible for paying a required licensing fee and/or state credit fee for any type of business or for any cosmetic professional; that is for the business (and the individuals providing these cosmetic services) to pay in order to practice and serve! Don't be bamboozled. Would you help pay your doctor and/or aesthetician to keep their yearly state required credits up-to-date? Of course you wouldn't.
Sadly, I'll be going elsewhere with this newfound info (I say sadly because Cindy was really awesome. But I'm not willing to help pay their personal/business licensing fees to operate). Groupon refunded my money for the BS purchases I made. They are spectacular.
Not one complaint here!!! People do your research first. – I too am a client of beautiful solutions. I have had nothing but wonderful experiences with all of the staff there. Trisha has done laser hair removal on me for months, and had quite the gentle hand. Boxtox was my second visit (during a huge xmas party) and Trisha was very attentive to my personal needs. She even had the owner, Cindy, come in and do my eyebrows really quick while i was there. Debra is wonderful and very eager. She will go far with this company. She rubbed some knots out of my shoulders once while I was waiting in the waiting room. So CIndy, your doing a wonderful job and I will still come back and send in friends. We love yall.
love beautiful solutions! – I, cathy Quinn of the hills lakeway have been coming to beautiful solutions as a client for almost 4 years. I have had both laser hair removal, laser skin tightening and several IPL treatments by Trish at beautiful solutions and have found the service to be above excellent. Cindy, the owner, has also performed radiesse, juvederm and botox. I find the results to be outstanding. I am also in the beauty business and am a licensed cosmetologist. I have had no hesitation in recommending beautiful solutions to my clients whom have found both pricing and service to be outstanding.
Love Beauitufl Solutions – I have been a customer of Cindy's at Beautiful Solutions for almost 4 years now. I have had everything from Laser Treatments to Botox, and I use many of their products. They have always done a fantastic job and have been caring and accomodating. Cindy will go out of her way to accomodate you with appointments, pricing, etc... she has great luncheons with free giveaways....recommend this Med Spa to all who want a great service at a great price. Thank you Beautiful Solutions for making me feel good about myself.
RUN AWAY! Donâ??t walkâ?¦BURNED BY LASER BY TECH!!! – I was a customer of Beautiful Solutions for over a year, investing in their treatments. Unfortunately, it all changed on 8/26/11 when I was burned with a laser during one of my treatments resulting in pigment loss to a pre-existing tattoo. It had never been an issue with the 6-7 treatments leading up to the burn, so I am lead to believe the burn was purely an act of negligence by the technician on that day, Trish Middleton.
In addition to the pain, healing process, scar tissue, and additional time and investment necessary to fix the problem; Beautiful Solutions has completely left me stranded. They did not take a sympathetic stance to the ordeal I had been through, and I feel completely alienated as a previously loyal client. The Owner (Cindy Andrews) and the Vice President (Jim Andrews) refuse to speak with me about the incident. In addition, they refuse to submit my treatment records, their licensing information, and treatment waivers to me.
I write this review as a warning!!! If you are considering using this med-spa, please be aware of the risks of using Beautiful Solutions for what should be routine procedures. I have zero confidence in their abilities and business practices, so please use this med-spa with a large dose of caution
Ouchless Botox – I've been going to this spa for Botox for the last 4 years. Cindy has a knack for not bruising me. She's always been the consummate professional. I've had issues with other medical spas, so it's a real find to locate someone who can navigate around all the veins in my face. She just moved her practice to new a 20,000 square foot medical complex out by Lakeline mall. I'm very impressed with the new layout.
Some friendly advice for all you new Botox users...
Be sure and use a spa that will mix the Botox in front of you. Cindy told me that when mixed there should be no more than 100 units per 100 unit bottle. If they won't mix it while your watching, then they probably have something to hide.
Before going to any medical spa, do your homework. Don't waste your time on blog sites, where anyone can pretend to be a doctor.
Botox, info for instance can be found on the Allergan website. Botox is made "only" by Allergan.
By checking out their site, I discovered after:
7 days - I should see some improvement in my wrinkles.
30 days - I will see the maximum improvement in my wrinkles.
60 days - I will see some wrinkles coming back.
90 days - I should start looking tired as it has mostly worn off.
Your mileage may very, but probably not by much since the Allergan study sampled over 400 patients.
I've heard stories of it lasting as long as a year, but given what I've read, it was probably just an exaggeration. I know some people just like the attention they receive by juicing up their claims ;)
I don't understand why there are these bad reviews – People need to understand that with the living social voucher, this place has been very busy. Also, i understood immediately that all of these procedures at once wouldn't be the best. So, of course, i called and cleared that up with the spa. The receptionist on the phone was very friendly, and just as friendly in person. I did not have to wait long to get into my appointment and i was very happy with the procedure. I do wish the facial was a bit longer, but i understand that it is just an intro to each service. I am very looking forward to my next procedures and can't wait to see the results.
