American Laser Clinics: False comments & repercussions.

This post on American Laser Clinics and armed guards has had more than a few readers and comments.

 
OFT_scam_300.jpgThe comments have been universally negative until just now. Now someone's trying to game the system.

LH caught on to this anonymous loser who's using different names to post positive American Laser Clinic comments as "Happy Customer" and "Thndrbabe". LH's comment made me suspicious so I looked up the comments. Surprise... they're both from the same computer with this IP address: 67.36.66.139.

(I'll not disclose further identifying information but it's the same person and I can find the exact computer as can anyone else now.)

This poser is trying to use this site to promoted ALC has really pissed me off so I've taken the following actions:

  • Each of this persons comment now has a link back to this post alerting everyone that the comments are a front.
  • I've blocked that IP address from ever accessing this site and other suspicious posts will trigger an alert that I can review.
Just to make it clear: I don't care if you're pro or con on any position but I take the credibility of this site seriously and will guard its (and my) reputations jealously. You are never really anonymous on the web so be warned. False commenters will be outed mercilessly. The person leaving these comments has now accomplished exactly the opposite of what they were trying to accomplish. I hope the lesson's learned.

Safety is so important to me. I have one man who came in today for microderm of his face. He is a construction worker and he works outside every day and his face and whole body looked tan and pink and he told me his face is sensitive. I told him to wear sun block 65 and wear a hat and come back in 2 weeks for the treatment. I demonstrated microderm (how it works on his arm). Do you think I did the right thing? My manager was not happy; she wanted me to do microderm on his face on the lowest setting. Anyway the guy changed his mind and he requested the refund .
what do you think about it

cathy, a good esthetician always puts the pt's safety first, you did the right thing. I think you followed protocol for that pt situation very well. I do the same with my pt's who are in the sun with no spf. when I was teaching esthetics I had the same protocol in place for students doing microdermabrasion. a spf of 35 is fine

I have had nothing but a nightmare experience with this company. . . as a technician at a MA location we would work 12 hour days sometimes without breaks and often times overbooked. In addition my managers who found out I was pregnant made me sign up for a "retrain" and told me they would contact me the next day, mind you they told me this after I showed up at 8 am for a patient and was sent home until 11 then sent home again both times because the patient supposedly "cancelled" at 3 when I was told to come back I was told about the "retrain" and was promised I would be contacted the following day for a date. NO CALL...I called for a week straight without reply and then two weeks later found out via my health insurance that I was no longer employed...now they are fighting with unemployment stating I "abandoned my job" not that I enjoyed being screamed at to sell services that did not work to patients but I did need employment especially being pregnant. . . I now have to prove to unemployment that they were decietful and actually let me go without notice.
