AWFUL!!! DO NOT WASTE MONEY – WORST DECISION I EVER MADE!!! I wish that CitySearch had been around when I bought my package 3 years ago and before I WASTED $4300!!!!! It makes me want to throw up that I spent all that money in hopes that I would never have to shave my legs or bikini area again, instead I am still shaving every other day! And that is after 3 years of treatments! I will write reviews for this terrible place where ever I can and write as many as I can so that no one else wastes their money. I am just sick over it. They always kept me positive saying that it would work but it never did. They NEVER told me that there would be a possibility that it would not work at all!!!!! I hope everyone looks at these reviews and the company no longer exists to steal from people!!!!
Biggest waste of money and time! – DO NOT FALL FOR THEIR LIES! The staff is a hit or miss.. some women there are wonderful and take time to do the laser hair removal treatment making sure each spot is treated thoroughly. However 8/10 times you will have the opposite staffer who seems tired, bored, annoyed to work etc. They skim over the area and rush through which makes no progress in your hair removal. Every time one of the staff asked me to refer a friend, buy another area at a discount, etc I responded "How could I refer anyone when it doesn't work for me?" or "why would I ever spend another penny when I've had such a bad experience?" The reason I kept going after the initial year contract is because the next 2 years were "free". Free as in I already forked over $2,000 into this package so I may as well get treatments. The last 10 months of my "free" treatments were more of a hassle just to get there, wait usually 15 minutes or more and then be rushed out. Many times I had a 9am appointment and would beat the staff there. They often seemed as if they had just woken up and the service was worse than if I had come in the afternoon. Problem with afternoon is they always ran behind so you would have to wait longer. I wouldn't recommend this center or any other ALC to my worst enemy. HORRIBLE service and the staff seems unprofessional -except the couple girls I had over the course of 3 years!
WARNING! Don't Sign a Contract Until You Read This!!! – American Laser Center fails to tell people that the laser hair removal ONLY WORKS ON SOME PEOPLE!!! Even if you have dark black hair.
They send out $300-$1000 OFF PACKAGE VOUCHERS in their online contest. The WHOLE PURPOSE of this technique is to GET YOU TO SIGN A BINDING CONTRACT WITHOUT KNOWING IF THE TREATMENTS WILL WORK FOR YOU. Chances are...THEY WILL NOT!
I spent thousands of dollars on a package to find out that the lasers they use do not work on me...(note that I have had great results at other hair removal clinics using a different type of laser machine). Not a SINGLE strand of hair has fallen off since I have been getting treated at American Laser Center in Brentwood TN...Treatment Works on only SOME people. Don't waste your time and money.
American Laser Center Brentwood TN - 100% NO RESULTS...DON'T SIGN CONTRACT. Brentwood TN.
From what I have read online, YOU WILL HAVE A BETTER CHANCE OF GETTING BURNED AND PERMANENTLY SCARRED BY LASER THAN HAIR BEING REMOVED!

Confident! – I have gone to ALC for several different treatments. i have gotten hair removal on my legs and have been amazed at the difference in only a few visits. I have also gotten their body contouring...i highly recommend it...it was amazing to see the difference before and after!
I LOVE MY THIGHS! – I HAD THE HORRIBLE AS THEY SAY COTTAGE CHEESE LOOK ON THE BACK OF MY UPPER LEGS, FRONT,INSIDE AND OUT. I WAS EMBARRASSED TO WEAR SHORTS OR A SKIRT AND HAVENT WORN A BATHING SUIT IN 3 YEARS WITHOUT A LONG WRAP SKIRT DUE TO EMBARRASMENT OF MY THIGHS. I SAW A SHOW ON THE ENTERTAINMENT CHANNEL WHERE A STAR HAD WENT TO AMERICAN LASER CENTERS & HAD HER CELLULITE REMOVED SO AT ONCE I LOOKED THE MACHINE UP & FOUND THEIR WEBSITE & THE ONLY PROVIDER FOR THE VELASHAPE IS AMERICAN LASER CENTERS IN MOST AREAS INCLUDING MINE. I CALLED & THE HELPFUL STAFF AT THEIR OFFICE SCHEDULED ME A FREE ASSESSMENT. I WENT TO THEIR BRENTWOOD OFFICE WHERE THEY HAVE THE ONLY MACHINE IN A 150MILE RADIUS & TALKED WITH THEIR MANAGER MELLISA. I WAS A LITTLE NERVOUS A FIRST BUT SHE MADE ME FEEL WELCOMED & LET ME KNOW I'M NOT ALONE IN THIS BATTLE AS MOST EVERY WOMAN SUFFERS FROM CELLULITE ALSO. WE TALKED, SHE EXPLAINED THE PROCEDURE, THE REALISTIC EXPECTATIONS, & WHAT I WOULD HAVE TO DO TO HELP BY EATING WELL & DRINKING WATER. SHE LOOKED AT MY PROBLEM AREAS & SHE MADE A PLAN TO FIT ME TO ACHIEVE THE BEST RESULTS. MY PART WAS TO EXERCISE & PREPARE SO WE SCHEDULED ALL 6 OF MY VISITS TO START 2 WEEKS LATER. IT WAS A LITTLE UNCOMFORTABLE @ TIMES BUT WELL WORTH IT. I LOST 9.5lbs & MY PANTS WERE SO LOOSE THAT I WENT TO TRY A DIFFRENT SIZE & I AM EXCITED TO SAY I WENT DOWN A PANTS SIZE & THEY ARE STILL BAGGY IN THE LEG AREA. SINCE I HAVE HAD 2 CHILDREN I HAVE NOW DECIDED TO DO MY STOMACH AREA- I'VE STILL GOT A PUDGE FROM MY KIDS THAT NEVER SEEMED TO GO AWAY. I AM GOING TO BE 40YRS SOON & THIS HAS CHANGED MY LIFE & NEXT I PLAN TO GET THEIR SAFE SKIN SERVICES FOR MY FACE TO HELP MY WRINKLES. I HAVE SENT 2 FRIENDS THERE & RECEIVED $200 WITH THEIR REFERRAL PROGRAM. I WOULD RECOMMEND THEIR OFFICE TO ANYONE & THE STAFF IS VERY SWEET & ALWAYS MAKE ME SMILE. THEY NEVER FORGET YOUR NAME & REMEMBER THE LITTLE THINGS THAT ARE GOING ON IN MY LIFE WHICH REALLY MAKES ME FEEL GOOD TO KNOW THEY LISTEN TO WHAT I SAY..

American Laser Centers Hair Removal Does NOT Work For Most People – The nice things first. I have been going to the Brentwood office for over a year and a half and have never seen the office dirty. I work in an operating room and am over sensitive about dust and clutter.
I am on my 7th hair removal treatment and have only seen a 40-50% reduction in hair. I can't justify the money I spent on arms, bikini, and leg(s) hair removal. The over $4,000.00 I spent PLUS the time involved disheartening.
I was really frustrated on my 6th visit where photos was taken of all areas to show progress of the hair removal. They took photos of me after I shaved. We are instructed to shave before our appointments because the laser will not work if the hair is there. How insane is that for them to take photos for progress after I shaved.
Other issues, the phone goes to answering machine most of the time and at times no returned my call. I've left up to three messages over a 5 day window before someone called back. The computer is "down" a lot so scheduling has been difficult at times. Their paper record keeping has been poor and some of the staff are not proficient with their computer skills as they spend 5 to 10 mins figuring out when my next appointment will be.
My appointments are every 7 weeks apart. However, scheduling conflicts with American Laser in Brentwood may make them 8 to 9 weeks apart. I'm not happy about that.
I've researched several medical journals that hair laser could be every 4 weeks apart but ALC has rejected this as acceptable practice.
Here is what upsets me the most: The technician swears she does not skip areas while applying the laser but she does. She should research "Two-Point Discrimination on skin". I (clients) can tell when areas are skipped and it takes away your creditability. But I have over $4,000 invested in the hair package and I signed a contract so I have no recourse but to go back and hope for the best each time.
Happy Client – I am a current client at American Laser in Brentwood and after refering a friend who then looked on city search and told me about the few bad reviews. Well I can tell you that as a client currently I can't believe these reviews. I have never been treated poorly there. The staff remembers things that I tell them and ask me how my children are and how my vacation was, things like this that make you aware of how much they care. I also get the Vela treatments and have seen great results. I lead a lifestyle that supports the results of the treatment and my husband noticed! Also they are very honest with the fact that they are a busy clinic and encourage you to make your appointments much in advanced so you can come the time that you want to, if you don't take their advice to schdule in advance it is out of their control if you can't get the apointment time you want. I have had a great experince and they have done everything they can to work with me when I've been running late or had to change an appointment. I have and will continue to tell people to go to this clinic. The other reviews sound more like person attacks which seems out of line for a website like this,
Great staff and love the Treatments! – I have been visiting American Laser Centers for awhile now, and have had laser hair removal and VelaShape treatments. I felt more confident in a swimsuit this summer than I have in long time. I received a great promotional discount for being a client, and took advantage of the new non invasive solution for belly fat. I saw the treatment being performed on Keeping Up with the Kardashians. This was on the Entertainment channel, and wanted to try it out. I am so glad that I made the decision to purchase. Thank you so much for helping with my problem. Regina and Melissa are dolls, and will help you every step of the way. Everytime I go into the center, they welcome me with a friendly smile and southern charm. They are both so pretty and know their stuff. Highly recommend them and their business.
AVOID AT ALL COST OR HANG ON TO YOUR POCKET BOOK – False and misleading representations about Velashape results. I got no results. I am not overweight. I went for cellulite treatment which claims in ads and representations could not possibly be true as advertised. appts had to be scheduled more at their convenience than mine and I always had to wait anywhere from 10 to 20 minutes. Total waste of money and very costly. Don't waste your money nor your time on this worthless venture. Was not professionally run. If you have money to burn light a match to it at least it would keep you warm! Customer service was extremely lacking!
