I do agree with you that the service at atlantis can be hit and miss, depending on who's working at the time. The first time I was there, there was an older woman that ran the laser in a tiny little area of my underarm and then stopped. When I told her that my hairline went beyond the area she treated, she said that tiny area was all the underarm covered and that I'd have to pay to have my upper arms done if I wanted a larger area of my underarm lasered. Another $200 or whatever to extend the area by an inch or so? No thanks. The next time I was there was completely different, there was a younger woman working, and when I commented that the way she was treating my forearms (with one slow pass instead of several quick passes) was painful, she explained that that is how they were told to treat larger areas, but immediately changed to the repeated circular passes anyways and checked that that was less painful for me, and she didn't have "unique" definitions of where the boundries of treatment areas were either. The last time I went there was a different middle aged woman (Sherry, I think?) that was friendly and professional, no issues there. I wish there was a way to know who would be working that day when you book your appointment.
So, anyways, while I am getting decent results from the treatments, there definitely are some unsettling things about Atlantis. It's really strange the way they seem to try to conserve the ultrasound gel, I've never before been to a place that scrapes it off one area of your body and then re-uses it on the next...gross, and sometimes they use so little of it the laser catches the skin and gives you an unpleasant jolt. Definitely not the most polished and professional outfit around.
So, while I am seeing shedding and hair reduction in most areas I'm having treated there, I wouldn't go back after the voucher unless these things improve. Their prices are pretty good for the results I'm getting so far, but I think I'd rather pay a bit more and go to one of the other places that I've tried that don't try to re-define treatment areas, don't skimp on the ultrasound gel, and give you enough towels to clean yourself up without you having to beg for every piece...what's with that anyways?
