Atlantis Health, Beauty and Laser Clinic Review, and Complaints
I purchased this deal from Dealgetters.com for unlimited laser hair removal for one year on three body parts. Here is a link to the exact deal I purchased:

Prior to buying the deal, I tried calling numerous times just to talk to someone, they do not answer the phone, or return calls, ever. Bad sign number 1. But alas, my cheapness won out over my common sense, I buy the deal anyways
So I go in on my first appointment (it was early June, sorry I don't have the date on hand right now). First thing I notice, its really hard to find. This is because there is only a tiny sign on a door and they are located in the back part of a health food store. That was another red flag to me, however, it is very clean and well decorated, so that helped.
When I go in, I give the man (who is the owner and manages everything) my voucher and tell him what I want to use it on. I wanted to do underarms and brazilian. He argued with me that brazilan does not count as 2 body parts, its actually 3 body parts. I showed him my voucher and he said that dealgetters made a mistake. I informed that is not my fault and he needs to take it up with them. and he eventually agreed. He then tried to offer me deals on my legs etc. saying I could only get this deal this one time. I declined the offers. At this point I was a little bit worried, so I asked him what entails a brazilian in this clinic. He informed me its everything in the front. I've been getting waxed for years... a brazilian is actually everything... front and back... but whatever, I let it go as the wax has... done its job over the years (sorry for the TMI lol).
So going into the treatment, I was led into the room by the woman who would be administering the treatment. Her name I believe was Mery, she is very nice, although also tried to sell me things. The treatment was not painful, I didn't feel it at all, and I was in and out probably in about 10 minutes. The skin in the treated areas was very smooth, and did take a few days longer than usual to grow back. I did notice a difference in my underarms. However, there was no shedding, at any time at all during the 6 weeks in between the appointments. If you've done your LHR research, you know why this is important.
My second treatment was done 6 weeks later, by Parisa. She is nice enough, doesn't understand much English so it was a little uncomfortable. But she managed to also offer me more deals. She took more time, again it was painless. This session turned me off a little because after it was done, I was trying to clean up and get dressed and she just waited and watched me and asked me if I was going to give her a tip. I was a bit put off by how she went about it... I mean my privates are full of jelly, can I have a minute?!
Maybe I'm dumb, but I've LHR and some other treatments done at Toronto Cosmetic Clinic and you don't tip there. That's the only place I've done stuff like this at and I considered it kind of medical, where tipping isn't the norm. I dunno, I guess I was wrong lol
Anyways, although she took more time, the hair grew back quickly and once again no shedding.
I emailed them 4 days ago, and have not received a response.
I'm going to talk to them in person when I go in next, and I will update the thread.
Overall, I'm not happy with the service and whats going on so far. I just feel the owner doesn't care and I'm not expecting any good results, although I will use my full year of treatments.
I hope this helps someone else considering this clinic... you get what you pay for! I don't believe I'll even get my $99 worth lol oh well.
