Pure Medical Spa - Laser Hair Removal

Store shut down, whole company closed down unexpectedly and I had given them about $7, 000 up front. I had only used their services for a few months and then Pure Medspa shut down. This happened to me years ago but it haunts me to this day. Is there any recourse? I found all these other comments from other customers and I still have the Care Credit paperwork where I had to pay them almost $7k even though the company had shut down and I hadn't received services. I see it says resolved on the message board. Can someone please help me? I never found out how to go after PureMedspa and get my money back.

Desired outcome: My money back for services not rendered

Pure Medical Spa - Fraxel & microneedling

I went to Pure Medical Spa to rejuvenate my skin and ended up scarred. The first procedureIi had was the Fraxel. After the procedure my face was burnt and full of puss-filled blisters. New wrinkles appeared after my skin finally healed. I was told that I must have received a "REALLY GOOD treatment". I had bought a package so I thought that the next Fraxel would take care of the damage from the last procedure. At my appointment, I asked about the RF Microneedling and decided to try it since the Fraxel caused more damage to my skin. As it turned out, the lady who performed the microneedling procedure on me had no real experience. The manager knew of the attendent's lack of experience but encouraged her to continue with the procedure. During the procedure I could hear my skin being seared like a piece of meat and was in a great deal of pain. I assumed at the time that it must be a painful treatment which had to be endured to get good results (no pain, no gain), but soon realized that my faced was being branded. I now have scars across my nose, chin and on the side of my face. I called the office with my concerns and sent pictures, but didn't get me in for an appointment until 5 days later. When I went in for the appointment I asked if I should take my makeup off and the woman immediately replied, "No, I've seen the pictures". She clearly did not want the patients in the waiting room to see what happened to my face. I asked for a refund and was told that I could have a free Fraxel procedure. This was a nice offer, but who in their right mind would want another procedure performed at this establishment after the damage already done? I requested a full refund, but was told to wait some time for the managers to meet with me. This made me more angry and frustrated. When I threatened legal action, a manager finally called me and acted concerned. She told me that it sounded like my only concern was getting a refund. I said that I wanted my money back so that a trained plastic surgeon could try to fix the damage that was done. She then said she'd send in a prescription of Retina for me to use immediately. It's a good thing I checked with my doctor first, who said that using Retina right now would damage my skin further. When asked to speak to the owner of Pure Med Spa, they would not give me any contact numbers and was told that a manager would contact me. I amseriously considering legal action if this is not settled shortly.

Pure Medical Spa - The server was horrible, a nightmare

This company should be shut down all they do is take people money with no results, I went to Pure Med Spa Seven months ago to get Botox I paid for but never got, I paid $3.500 dollars phaxell to clear of the dark spots still there, all I got from that was burn skin and pain, I took 6 treatments lazer treatments to tighten up my skin, no difference six months have passed I see no changes, I did return to talk with Becky she gave me a bottle of Seraphim skin care, no change. Becky told me I should have been a valium everyone I come for pain, out of six times I was only given a Valium once, the procedure are very very painful. when I began to complain to the supervisor I call her a b#### but apologized. I call to speak to upper management several time and when I did talk to the owner she said to come in and do the treatments again, I told her know because it should have been done right the first time, due to the pain I told her know I rather her to put my money on my credit card she said no refund and she said for me not to call anymore. The staff lied and took all my money and no results. I'm highly pissed at Pure Med Spa. This is a message I sent Becky today
To Becky
Becky this is what came off google from other people that visited Med Spa, still Becky I did not get my Botox and my face still look the same, the rating are terrible I didn't write that someone else wrote it in the complaint, u said they need to do my face over u said that, oh well it's going to get nasty and you are involved.

Pure Medical Spa - Terrible (fraudulent) business practices

My nightmare with Pure Med Spa has been going on for almost a year. I went in last June with a Groupon for a certain service. The "consultant" told me I was not a candidate for that service, and suggested I have the lipo done instead. She quoted me a price of $6000, told me they offered financing, and asked to run my credit report to see if I qualified. I did consent yo the credit check, and I was approved. What I did not realize was that they were charging me instantly for the $6000. The "consultant" said that appointments for the lipo procedure "fill up fast" and I felt pressure to make an appointment. I did, but I told her that I'd need to talk it over with my husband before having anything done, and that I'd cancel the appointment I'd I decided against it.
I did decide against the procedure, and canceled my appointment the VERY next morning. Again, I did not realize they had already charged me the full amount of the procedure. So a couple of weeks later, I got the bill in the mail. Since then, it gas been nothing but a complete nightmare dealing with these people. I have since been trying to get a full refund. They told me I was entitled to a partial refund, as per their cancellation policy. Which means that they expect me to pay $1500 for a consultation, which took all of 30 minutes, if that long. That is outrageous! Even real medical facilities don't have such stupid policies! They made me go back down there to sign a paper requesting the partial refund of $4500, which they said could take 60 days to process. I didn't even get the refund they said I was entitled to until I filed a dispute with the credit company they use, Alpheaon Credit, and I filed that in December.
I have also filed a complaint with the Better Business Bureau. I was hoping that would get the rest of my money refunded. Pure Med Spa had 14 business days to reply to the complaint with the BBB, and they did not. Pure Med Spa will not return my phone calls, and they didn't respond to the BBB. That tells me that they know they are using shady business practices. I guess they figure if they don't return phone calls or respond to anyone, they don't have to actually refund anyone's money.
The bottom line is, I did not receive any goods or services from Pure Med Spa, and so, they are not entitled to any of my money. Something so simple seems to be beyond these people. I am still fighting thisfight almost a year later. Pure Med Spa probably thinks that by employing these despicable business practices, that people will give up and just pay. Pure Med Spa should not be allowed to remain open. STAY AWAY!

Pure Medical Spa - Laser Hair Removal

Terrible service! Never go there. Being a health spa the technicians do not read the notes as to what settings on the machine hurt the patient etc. I was sold an unlimited package (upto 12 treatments) and the spa pushed out my scheduled appointment and ended up not finishing the treatment. The technicians keep on cancelling scheduled appointments. Most of these scheduled appointments were cancelled after I reached the spa which was 35 miles away from my home. They cancelled on me so many times that they pushed my 6 appointments to 22 months. When I enquired the management was unsupportive and not even apologetic

BEWARE OF THIS PLACE!

I completely agree with you. I had no idea. I had three different appointments that they have cancelled on me and I go to call them again today and just now realize they are closed. That was a lot of money we just lost to this horrible company. With all the prepaid services that were not rendered to their customers, I have no idea how they could go bankrupt. Let's just hope what comes around, goes around..

Pure Medical Spa - Services never rec'd - Money Stolen

I too have been a victim of the Orland Park IL Pure Med Spa after being told the end of December I had to pay ahead of time before my appt. a month later to receive dysport. And I paid the $280 requested with a debit bank card. When I showed up for my appt. the office was SHUT DOWN, and a note on door stating employees were behind being paid for 6 weeks and phone #'s for Louise Talbot and Jeff Nourse. I was reassured by both Louise and an x backstabbing friend who works there and lies to everyone that they were "restructuring". She sat there in an office bragging how she was raking in money to sit there and take complaints and do nothing and get paid. I was told I would be rescheduled time and time again when they had an "opening" at another spa location which they were booked and made excuse after excuse. I tried to contact back Orland, and my so called x-friend just left on a recorder to avoid my calls. My bank called and she answered and lied to them saying I received services when I did NOT! They knew she was a liar. Which doesn't surprise me. I am out the money, though not a friend. She never was, and used people and friends all of her life. So the place suits her as a liar and thief that Caren Paluch is! Go to a reputable honest company! Stay away from Orland Pk, IL Spa.

My Wife and myself also paid for 6 treatments in WestField Valley Fair Mall at Santa Clara, CA. and the Store also Closed over a month ago, and we have no idea what is going on, please if somebody knows how to get in contact with their main office let me know because I will submit a formal complain with the county Attorney General due to the fact that just a month prior to closing they took my money and they were well aware that they were going to closed the store.

I fell into the trap that many others also found. They gladly took my deposit of $500.00 and quickly closed their doors. Luckily, I was able to have my bank cancel the automatic payments that were mandatory to continue with the laser treatments I wanted. I did get a phone number for Louise Talbot from one of the disgruntled employees and managed to talk with her. Oh, she was very sympathetic, but that was it! How does she sleep at night? I hope she doesn't! I want my money back or even better, see her in jail for cheating honest people out of their hard earned cash!

Paid for six treatments at Shermans Oaks location. After receiving only three treatments, the Sherman Oaks store closed for 'remodeling, ' and never reopened. I finally contacted someone at the Beverly Hills location. They cancelled Three appointments on me for various reasons. Finally, I was able to schedule an appointment, when I arrived they were completely closed. The parking garage attendant told me that they had been closed all week and that people were still arriving for appointments. I reached an employee on cell phone who told me they are closed for 'remoldeling.' I'm sure they won't reopen, and I just want to get my money back.

I was walking in valley fair mall today to go personally to pure medspa since they were not answering my call from yesterday.

I'm so devastated to find out that they closed out without informing the customers. Now I don't know what to do with my debt with my credit card. I actually open a credit card for them. so crazy.

Can anyone help me to whom I should be contacting?

Pure Medical Spa - Can't Get Another Appointment

I have called Pure Med Spa three times in the last three days asking them to call me back for an appointment. I have yet to hear from them. Based on the comments I have read about this place I may never hear from them. I am half way through with my lasar treatment ($579) and fear that I may never have the rest of the treatments. DONT GO TO THIS PLACE! Pay the extra money and go to a professional's office.

If you paid by credit card call your credit card company and dispute the bill. Do it as soon as humaly possible, if you didn't get the products or services you ordered they will refund your money.

Check with the state, county, and/or city licensing to find out who the owner is and bring them to conciliation court.
