It did cost more, but worth the results..
I have had Botox about 4 times now. Always from different places, because while I've always been moderately happy with my results, I've never been 'thrilled'....I live North of Nashville, so most of my experience is in that area of town. They had a special on Botox, and I had read some reviews specifically about the results from Avanti, so I decided it may be worth the drive to try out. I use Botox for two primary reasons: 1. To look younger and get rid of this really obnoxious forehead line I have and 2. I have lack of facial symmetry, particularly in the eye's that really bothers me, particularly in pictures. I've seen improvement in the past with other clinics, but my face was always still assymetrical.
The first thing I noticed is how really very friendly the lady working the front desk was. I believe her name is Tina. I was caught in traffic because I was driving from so far away and she was SO nice to me about it on the phone, putting me at ease. She also was very informative about different things available at the office. She was very nice both on the phone and when I arrived at the office. Even though I was 5 minutes late, I was seen nearly right away by Dr. Meers. It was the first time EVER that a doctor doing Botox on me took some time and actually LOOKED AT MY FACE. He looked at how each of the muscles worked on ME rather than just saying 'oh you want that well I just inject here and here and here on everybody'. We discussed what I wanted improvement on (upper forehead, eye symmetry, and I decided to try a lip thing he does with Botox too). He discussed the injections and prices with me. Here is where I got a little bit nervous, it came to quite a bit more than I am used to spending. 200 more, OUCH...even though his prices per unit are VERY good, he used a lot more units. This was more than just the addition of my lips, as those weren't a lot of units. I really got worried at this point, because I had not planned on spending that much and could of easily declined and gone to one of the other places I had gone to before. The fact is, he was so very thorough when he was examining my facial muscles, that I decided to take the risk and see if I would get better results from somebody that seemed more interested in my results. On the way out, the front office lady was nice enough to show me everything I needed to do so that I can sign up for Botox discounts from the company that makes it. She also gave me an extra chocolate..hahahaha!
I had this done about 2 weeks ago and have waited to make my review until I was sure I had a clear picture of my results. Botox can take some time before you know what you've ended up with. Well, I am AMAZED and THRILLED and DELIGHTED! This is by far the best results I've ever gotten. My boyfriend lives out of state and came down last weekend and could not believe how much younger I look. He claims 13 years younger (I'm 39), but he's probably being a bit over the top. He really was just amazed at my results. I love what I see in the mirror and the pictures that were taken on Halloween look FANTASTIC! My face has never been this EVEN before....it's one of those things that really bothers me in pictures, and oh my gosh, my face is as even as it could possibly get. That is the part I am happiest about....yes, I do look younger, which is GREAT...and I do really like the lip thing that he does, it's very subtle, but for me 'just enough' and I wouldn't want something more obvious...but WOW, my face is very, very even which is a huge deal for me and my confidence level.... I am more than happy with my results. It absolutely was worth the extra money to have Dr. Meers do this. I will probably never go anywhere else!
Bottom line: I HIGHLY recommend!!!!
Loved it, Want more of it!. I too was also called from a bridal show and won a $250 prize. They were up front on the phone about it being used toward a package only. I didn't feel rushed or pushed and decided on some hair removal. My hair removal package ended up costing only $350, not bad to be hair free for hundred bucks. I also met the doctor and didn't find him "creepy" at all, in fact he was informative and professional. I questioned him about dermal fillers and he's the first guy who DIDN'T try to sell me! He said the changes I wanted wouldn't suit my face shape and now I'm so glad I didn't do it I will be forever grateful to him and his staff for thinking of what's best for me instead of how much of a sale they could make. I don't know about the last person who commented but it sounds like she wanted a body make-over for nothing, my experience is you usually get what you pay for. I've already sent two friends there and they're both pleased, my advice is check it out for yourself before believing sour grapes!
Creepy Unprofessional and a huge scam. I have never felt so awkard the entire time I was in Avanti I never saw another customer. They were all extremely pushy and the whole place smelled of a scam. I was called in because I won a $300 gift certificate at a bridal show but when I showed up I was told that it could only be used towards a package which neared 4500 dollars. Some winning. I realized they called my two friends and told them that they were also third place winners and won $300 dollars. What a scam. Dont go ever they seemed soo desperate and the doctor was unprofessional and creepy
Found my Fountain of Youth!. I found Avanti by accident while headed to the dentist, what luck!. I had been living with this red splotch on my cheek since I was a kid. I tried heavy make-up, everything, nothing covered it. Then I stumbled across Avanti and Dr. Meers did a quick laser procedure that took just a moment, cost $100 and poof!!! NO MORE UGLY SPOT! That was a month ago and I still can't believe it's gone. I'm now getting my skin care products there because their staff actually knows what's in the bottles they sell. My face looks better and better and it's costing me less than I was paying for my 'mall' products. If you care about your skin and pocket book, go there!
Treatment and Results were 4-Star.
I don't know about the last two people, (they almost sound like the same person), but I had terrific results with my hair removal! I was done in four treatments and that was five months ago. The personel couldn't have been kinder and Dr. Meers has since done my lip injections, I found him to be professional and yet more down-to-earth than any doc I've met in this business. I wouldn't hesitate to reccomend this place and these people to anyone, in fact my mom is seeing them next week!
If you're looking for a trustworthy place for esthetics, go by and talk to them, then make up your own mind!
Rude, Overbearing and Didn't Produce Results.
Hi, I like the user above did not receive what I felt was adequate treatment from Avanti Skin Center of Cool Springs.
I too was cut off of my Laser Hair Removal packages by the owners even after 2 of my Technicians told me that they'd give me as many treatments as I needed to get my hair gone.
The owners would not refund my money nor would they finish treating me even though I did not get results common for people with my skin and hair type.
I, like the customer before me, can only infer that this was due to Avanti's Gross Negligence.
In addition the owners were pushy, rude, overbearing and deceptive regarding my treatments.
DO NOT GO HERE. Try Elan, I've gone to them and they seem to have their act together quite a bit more!
