So Loved it – Finally did something for myself to make me feel good about me. so i went to a few other medspa's for information and found them to be almost like cattle ranchers just moving you right along. Nu U had some suspect reviews but i was pleasenly suprised wth what i heard and decided for the price i could take a chance on this company. i had laser hair done on two area's love the results!! now im having some other treatments done for my face...i love this place
Great Medspa – I went last week and had a great time. For my first visit, i did Micros and Chem Peels, and I couldn't have been happier. Great service, Nurses and technicians, and everything was very hassle free, which I definitely appreciated. I've heard about Nu U Medspa, and even with a poor reviews, I decided to give it a try. i look for deals people!!
I am not just a 5-star girl, but I am certainly an optimist as well as a realist, and this place totally delivered. No attitude and nothing pretentious, a awesome deal, and I'd be wrong if I didn't let people know that mine was a very above average experience. Nu U has not let me down! Hope this helps, and I hope y'all get to enjoy some time here.
HORRIBLE SERVICE AND NO REFUNDS!!! READ WHAT U SIGN!!!! – I also had the worst experience with this company. I called and inquired about laser hair removal, which they told me to come in and get started that day. I went in thinking I was paying for a procedure that would start that day. Gina took my $1000 deposit then proceeded to tell me that they were too busy that day. I then asked for a refund she stated come tomorrow and they squeeze me in. The next day, they sent me to Schaumburg, where they didnt have the correct laser!! They then offered me a complimentary facial, that turned out to be a chemical peel! It took layers of skin off my face!!! I now have scars on my face and they still have my deposit for my laser treatment!!! Rawlings and Sean Hoffman refuse to return my calls or money til I sign a waiver that releases their responsibilities!!!! DO NOT GO TO THEM AT ALL THEY TOOK MY MONEY WITHOUT EVEN GIVING ME SERVICE!!! i HAVE SINCE HIRED A LAWYER!
SCAM – I totally was disappointed with my experience at NU U Med Spa in Oak Brook. I have waisted a tremendous amount of time trying to resolve a dispute. I received one lipo dissolve treatment and they charged me for a series. One was enough to see that it didnt work, produced bruising and lumpy balls under the skin. The manager called and said my money would be refunded, which it was not. After months of calling and going there, they finally gave me a credit toward something to have done at their "Spa" which of course I am unable to use because I won't go back.

All was well when I was told at This location that I would get a 60% Off deal of $10k for Services and was pushed to set a date and pay during my consultation with a Sales person (No Dr) . This is the normal price Everywhere but here it's a 60% Off Deal. I post about my experience, their Customer Service Rep asked me to remove my review for a $1500 discount. bringing the price to $8500. Well this is the Sale Price for Feb. Once again. No Deal. I'm dealing with The Armitage Location for all of this. I have yet to even meet with Drs. This Game is all played before I meet with a Dr in the Oakbrook location as you only meet with them the day of services.
After I was given the $8500 "deal" I was Offered and was supposedly transferred a credit for $5400 at the Skokie Location (Look at photos. Tacky Write up and and NU U Did everything to keep me from Using it. Even by contacting the original holder of this credit. They knew and commented on how she was trying to get rid of it online for a Very Long time. When they saw that she finally got rid of it to me. Only then did they contact her about a "PARTIAL" Refund. This way they are allowed to keep part of the cash that they had already received from her) .
This is the office that I was going to purchase my services through. I've gotten several run around. The first was a 60% off that comes out to be the same price as any other M.D (but it was supposed to be a sale) Then their background chats (customer service /sales staff) on how they can milk you out of $$. You notice that they speak because you'll leave a MSG .. no return call, then say forget it and someone calls you right back within the hour. Both parties always know when you just ended the call with the other party. All of these games. Just do what you're supposed to do. Good Lawd! I hate that each location doesn't have a direct number. that's a Negative Sign .. They caller I.D You then call their offices to forewarn the staff. All of this crazy stuff to take you for a joyride. I never met the DR as you have to Play the Game First. There is no way in Hell would I give these people $10,000 of my Cash. There is a no Refund Policy. They will only contact you if they feel that you're going to write about them. Just like the woman giving away her credit. They watched her attempt to give it away. When someone wanted to finally use it. Then they want to negotiate with her.. so that I can't use it. I go to the Skokie Location and they Scribble a Transferred Credit. I've posted photos. Unbelievable. DO NOT Waste your $$ here unless you're going for a cheaper Facial or something!
I hope that they improve their -F Rating from the Better Business Bureau
Nu U Med Spa – I will keep you posted on how my case is handled!--> *********************Update: 3/26/2010************** Since I posted here before, I have been contacted by a Nu U Medspa Rep. I am happy to say that my problem has been 100% RESOLVED!! I had an issue with the care that I recieved and once my issue was brought to their attention I was immediately contacted by their customer service rep who assured me that they would work as hard as they could to make sure that the issue was taken care of. It has been a long process but at the end of the day very worth it because I am satisfied with what has been accomplished. Whatever downsides this company has they definitely overcome it with their great response and very thorough Customer Service!!
Full Service MedSpa – I'm definitely a fan. I was pretty nervous about doing lipo but Dana (manager at the LP location) helped put my mind at ease. The Dr who performed my procedure was very friendly and helped me relax (the pills they supplied me with didn't hurt either :) ) Full service, they even picked me up and dropped me off in a limo the day of the surgery (who does that?! WOW!). I got a pretty good price too. Everything healed up nicely, I got back to working out moderately 2 weeks post op and was pretty much back to normal in a month. Very happy with the follow-up and the Oak brook staff called to check up on me hours after the surgery and then every couple of weeks to check on my recovery. I would recommend this place in a heartbeat.
Inconsistant procedure and process; unprofessional – NuU MedSpa - Oak Brook
I signed up for a photo facial package - 5 chempeels/micro and 5 photofacials for about $1800. I have large brown spots on both my cheeks and under my eyes that look like bruises, but are due to sun damage. I was assured this would remove those spots. The first one they did a chempeel and photofacial same day - Over the next few days, i began to see the coffee ground effects and results. I had 8 more treatments to go. I took pictures of each change, so I could realize the difference at the end of this million dollar treatment. Unfortunately my 2nd treatment, had NO results. Nothing. I took pictures of that too. No on called to check on me(as they always do), so I called the manger to ask why the signifcant difference. She was on vacation so they gave me the next person in charge(Gina). She proceeded to ask me if I was in a different room? Who did the first one? and then told me, each laser can be different and stronger than the last. (like tanning bed bulbs?) I informed her, that I had no coffee grounds like last time coming through, nothing! She proceed to get angry and argumentive with me. She then proceeded to tell me I would have to wait till the end of ALL 10 treatments to determain the outcome. I informed her I felt no service was provided and if the rest continued at this rate, I was certain to not see a change in my skin at all. I felt they rubbed jelly on my face and wiped it off and sent me on my way. It seems to Save $$$ THEY ARE NOT doing the procedures. I asked noted it in my chart. She said fine and hung up. Unprofessional. The Spa, it self in not nice and relaxing. The front water fountain sits rusted out. They music is loud, no one is ever nice enough to offer you anything to drink. The Techs don't ask about any additional concerns, new meds, etc. Things they should know about before starting a procedure. They always try to talk you into more packages before you even leave- very Pushy! Be Aware They don't Care.
Nu u spa in Oakbrook or other locations..... – I signed up for the Pretty City special of $59 for service and was almost duped. I did read all the reviews but felt maybe if I tried another location it would be "different". Something told me to call and confirm etc. and Im glad I did. SCAM!!!! They advised me that my fee was for a consultation and "if there was time" I would be seen for the procedure. Absolute nonsense, shouldnt that be provided the same day of the service? Why sign up for a "special" promotion and not offer this to consumers honestly. ...I would NEVER EVER go to them...If you are in need of Spa Services Dina @ Nourish Medspa in Lombard is wonderful!!! I saw her instead due to the NU U ripoff!!!! Tell her Carla sent you...;o)
She does wonderful chemical peels and Im sure any other service is fantastic!!! I was given tea and was totally relaxed!!!! Beware Ladies!!!! Thanks....
