Botox Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback
Botulinum toxin (Botox) is a neurotoxic protein produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum and related species. It prevents the release of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine from axon endings at the neuromuscular junction and thus causes flaccid paralysis. Infection with the bacterium causes the disease botulism. The toxin is also used commercially for medical and cosmetic purposes.
A user warns all by recounting her experience, "First time 20 units for “11’s”, Botox injected by trusted and highly qualified dermatologist. Horrible experience: sudden onset of extreme nausea. followed by dizziness, vertigo, headaches and nausea. Numb arm, neck pain, head pressure, plugged ears and ear/jaw pain. weakness in my legs, trouble swallowing, tinnitus, lasting months! This has been hell…don’t do it!"
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says"I worked at Ideal Image full-time for more than 3 years Cons: Literally everything else. They expect you to work endless hours and lie to people all day about these services that clearly don’t work"
Lead Sales Consultant says"I worked at Ideal Image for less than a year Cons: The worst company it's a scam with uneducated ignorant retail managers with no skills to actually manage. The "base" is a draw against your commissions if you meet your quota you make only a little more than the base of 40k. You have to work 9 hour days and six days a week the last week of the month. They will suck all your time toy with your pay it's a scam, not for anyone with anything to offer. Total time waster. The uneducated manager is trying to manager people who are nurses, PA's, and NPS total disaster, all of it is a joke It's going down hill with the new CEO and the company will suffer bust mostly the employees. All across the country and in Canada employees hate their job and call it a dungeon."
Former Employee - Lead Sales Consultant says"I worked at Ideal Image full-time for less than a year Cons: High pressure sales tactics, put to much stress on staff. Clients injured and company sued multi times stressed staff that wanted to keep a good local reputation."
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says"I worked at Ideal Image full-time for less than a year Cons: Where to begin...the turnover in the centers is TERRIBLE. I think about 6 of 8 girls I trained with in Tampa have quit in less than a year, and don't even begin to ask me about the dozens upon dozens that have quit in my market. Don't be lured into the job thinking that the pay is high because whatever you start with, will be what you make for YEARS. There is no pay raise unless you can upsell guests at least 10k every month and have perfect attendance. The quality of care you give your guests doesn't even matter. You have to squeeze in first time guests if they buy that day, which puts your day off and is disrespectful to other guests that have appointments. Current guests can wait almost up to an hour, just to make sure that the company is giving off a "good" impression to first time guests. The company sets outrageous goals and you will barely get any commission or bonuses, unless you meet these goals (which keep getting harder to reach each year - ironic isn't it?). Half of the services don't even work (for example, Ultherapy) and you're going to have to constantly deal with complaints from guests because of that. If you think you're leaving on time, just forget it. Usually you have to stay at least 30 minutes past close, at minimum, and if you leave early, you can get in trouble. If a guest buys at the end of the day, you're expected to stay and treat them (even if it's a 50 minute long appointment). It makes for a very hard work-life balance. This company is so focused on making money, they forget to value the people actually making them the money. The nurses are undertrained and forced to do treatments that they're not comfortable with. Center management is a joke and not medical, so they rarely meet eye-to-eye with their employees. If you work full-time, you're most likely working 4-5 days a week and are automatically expected to cover extra days on top of that if others call in. Trust me when I say, you will get overtime almost EVERY week. GSCs are overworked as well, and underpaid. Read the reviews from employees in the centers. I made the mistake of reading and ignoring the reviews."
Current Employee - Anonymous Employee says"I have been working at Ideal Image full-time Cons: I would not recommend Ideal Image for anyone in Finance. Mid-management provides little guidance and direction, resulting in most of the good employees leaving at the first opportunity. Upper management will not hesitate to furlough employees with no notice, garnish their wages, and/or let them go to cut costs. While their salary offerings may seem attractive at first glance, Ideal Image is not someplace that is a good career move long term."
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says"I worked at Ideal Image full-time Cons: High turnover- especially with nurses Decisions on a patient's health and whether or not they are the right candidate for services are made by non-medical professionals. Aggressive sales practices"
LRC Sales Associate says"I have been working at Ideal Image Cons: Pay compensation keeps on changing which is causing all the good sales people to leave the company. Their is not a true understanding of work-life balance. You are expected to work all of the time even over night shifts if they want you to. The training is horrible and there are a lot of ineffective processes that just waste the companies time and money. Upper Management does not value the sales people and because of this there is a high turn over."
