DO NOT GO HERE! My experience with Bella Medspa has been by far the worst experience I have ever had with any company. I made an appointment to have 2 areas of coolsculpting done. They cancelled my appointment THREE TIMES with less than 24 hours notice. I have a job, as many of us do, and I took off work to have this done, and they couldn't have cared less about not only the inconvenience, but my hours lost at work. Like an idiot, I decided to still have the coolsculpting done by them... I would have let this go, except I just had my 3 month "check-in" and had barely any results. They say you will see a 25% decrease, and I saw, maybe 5%, and the lady who did my check-in agreed with that. They are not offering to do any other treatments or refund me in anyway because "that's why they had me sign the waiver". DO NOT GO TO THEM. There are plenty of other places who actually care about their customers.
Went for cool sculpturing and it's bs. After 4 days I had no pain and was worry if the procedure was done correctly. When they call to check up on me I explain this and they said not everyone gets pain. So 16 weeks later and no difference. The before and after pictures looked the same. I spent a lot of money for this and was quite upset so I ask if they could try the procedure again. They said they had to get a manager to call me. They call 4 days later and said the contract I sign states it doesn't work on everyone. I didn't want a refund I wanted them to try the procedure again and she said she have to talk to another manager. The whole thing is a farce. Don't waste your money. I wished I went for the tummy tuck. For the amount of money you spend a few more thousand dollars and I would have real results. Plus they still haven't sent me my before and after pictures because there's nothing to see.
Being a model for skin care products, it’s one of my most important tasks to make my skin look squeaky clean, and as fresh and young as possible. But you know it’s not that easy as it seems to be! The consecutive application of various cosmetics had an adverse effect on my skin, so much so that at the mere age of 29, my skin looked old and dull. It’s then that one of my colleagues told me about chemical peel, which peels away the upper layer of your skin with the application of a type of acidic solution. With the removal of the dead cells, your regenerated skin gets revealed. Though I was a bit confused initially about chemical peel, I decided to visit Bella Medspa. The professionals at the clinic were extremely skilled and treated me with utmost care and expertise. They also guided me with the post treatment precautions. I am glad that I went to Bella Medspa. Can’t thank them enough!

Went to Bella medspa for laser hair removal. It hurt very badly during the treatment, I told the technician I was in pain and she continued, without turning down the machine. Immediately after my treatment I was in excruciating pain. I then had to ice my face for 4 hours. In the morning I was left with 50 or so purple/brown large spots on my face. I called Bella medspa. They said this does happen and they were sorry. No refund. Nothing. I haven't been able to leave my house. Take my kids to birthday parties because of these marks. I have been informed by a doctor that this will take months of treatment to go away - if it even ever is normal again. This Bella medspa tech did not know what she was doing. Do NOT go to Bella medspa!!!
I went in for some laser hair removal treatment a couple of weeks ago. I had a great experience during my treatments. The technicians were very friendly and it definitely showed that they knew what they were doing! I recommend Bella to anyone looking for laser hair removal!

Search ""Style Medspa Allentown"" on Yelp to see what people are saying about his place. We're sorry to have to post something like this, but Bella Medspa has every intention of fighting to keep our reputation and name in tact. (FYI Yelp has a much more strict set of guidelines for reviews and therefore eliminates most spam/bogus reviews)

BELLA MED SPA WAS THE WORST DECISION I EVER MADE!!!
by ultimateelectric at Citysearch
I was interested in Laser Hair Removal. So I Googled Laser Hair Removal in Pa & found a company by the name of Bella Med Spa. I found their Ad on Google claiming to have a Life Guarantee / Full Guarantee.I'm normally skeptical about services like this but I thought how could I go wrong with a Lifetime Guarantee. Plus I really wanted permanent hair removal for my face for many years now & felt that this was a Perfect Opportunity with the Lifetime Guarantee! So I made an appointment and decided to get laser hair removal to my entire face / ear area for $1435.00. They made me sign a consent form stating that they would not be liable for any burns, hives, discoloring of skin & that the Laser Hair Removal is ""Not Guaranteed for a Lifetime!!!, which made me disappointed! It also said that I am Not Guaranteed that all of the hair would permanently be removed to the areas being treated! But I figured that even less than 100% would be acceptable!!! During my 1st session I experienced a lot of pain! The technician would shock my face over and over again with the laser & would smell the burning! During the 2nd session they turned up the power even higher & I was in Extreme Pain! My fists were clinched shut and my toes were curled up. The technician asked if I was ok and I said that I was definitely Not OK! & I never felt pain like that in my life!!! She said that she would have to turn up the laser settings higher before every session. She also said that it was ""Common for male patients to interrupt treatments half way through their session due to the Extreme Pain"" I thought it was strange that no one mentioned how bad the pain was before I agreed to all this! After my 2nd session my heart was beating very fast and my adrenaline was very high for about 30min during my drive home. On the morning of my 3rd session I took 2 Excedrine Tabs, 2 Ibuprofen Tabs and 3 applications of Lidocain 1hr, 30mins, & 5mins before my session. Again the laser settings were increased and the pain was still Very Extreme! After the 3rd session I was told that I had to pay the final $715.50 dollar balance, so I did! I went home & made an appointment to see my doctor. He prescribed Lidocane 5% + Tetracain 5% Cream & Vicodin Tabs. So on my 4th appointment I took 2 Vicodin Tablets & applied 3 applications of the Lidocain / Tetracain Cream to my entire face, neck, and ear areas. Even though I was very tired from the 2 Vicodin Tablets, the machine was turned up again and the pain was still Extreme! After the 3rd session my face was all swollen & red. I also had acne all over my face & neck After the 4th session my ears had scabs on them and I was bleeding. I was Scared to Death to continue to the 5th treatment, but I didn't want to let over $1400.00 to go down the drain, so I went. Halfway through the 5th session I told the technician to stop, due to torturing myself & seeing no hair removal results; Plus was risking permanently burning of my skin. I spoke to the Manager many times over the phone & she said that I could not be refunded. She said that they Never Refund Money Back! I asked about the Lifetime Guarantee and Full Guarantee posted all over the internet and she said, that is Just Marketing!!! She said that I fully knew about the Extreme Pain by signing the consent form. And I knew that I may not see any Permanent Hair Removal. I would never agree to pay over $1400.00 if I knew that I would see No hair removal and that I was consenting to being Tortured with Extreme Pain! The manager also refused to send me a copy of my signed consent form! So after being tortured, wasting time & money taking off days from work going doctor appointments, paying for prescriptions and traveling to 5 sessions I lost over $1435.50 Plus I still have a Full Beard and am left without Any Hair Removal at All!

I had my first chemical peel performed here: a Skin Medica Rejuvenize Peel. The aesthetician was very attentive to the needs of my skin and the staff courteously helped address all of my concerns. I highly recommend this service. For a very low cost, you'll never have to wear makeup again.

I am now officially addicted to laser hair removal! I started off getting my chin, unibrow, and underarm hair removed. after 5 treatments, I had NO hair! I then decided to have my lower half of my legs done.... I only shaved 2 times after my first treatment (1 to get the few little hairs missed and 2 to prepare for the second treatment) I feel little to no pain when I have my treatments. I am also getting my Brazilian done (the tech is very discrete when doing this area). When my daughter is old enough, she will be a customer also! I recommend Bella Med Spa to all of my friends and co-workers. I love the Lancaster location and their staff are great!

This past February my company transferred me from Miami to Philadelphia. The move was quite a cultural shock to say the least (especially moving from 85 degree weather to snow!). With Philadelphia's huge array of restaurants and bars, I quickly felt at home.
However, being a Miami native, I did the whole pamper thing with the spas and really missed it.
This summer, I was looking for a medspa for Botox injections. I really didn't think I would find anything like what I had in Miami until a coworker recommended Bella Medspa. All I have to say is I AM IMPRESSED! From their professional staff to their beautiful facility - this place is great. My Botox injections went well and I will definitely be back for their other services.
Thank you Beth (and staff) for such a wonderful and pleasant experience.

Normally I never take the time out of my day to write a review. However, after my recent Botox experience at Bella Medspa, I feel I need to.
Never before have I been greeted with such professionalism. This was my first ever experience with Botox injections and believe me, it was a big decision. A friend of mine received laser hair removal from Bella Medspa and informed me they offered Botox as well.
I spoke with Beth and she walked me through the entire process (which by the way, isn't long at all!). Normally, you would think they would be pushy and try to sell you. This was not at all the case. Even after several phone calls and many questions later, Beth walked me through step by step. She even went as far as pointing me to her website for a wealth of information on Botox.
After finally receiving the injections, I couldn't be happier. Thank you Bella Medspa and thank you Beth for such a wonderful experience and beautiful results!
You have a client for life for all my medspa needs.

I recently moved to the Philadelphia area from out west. I've been looking for a medspa that offered Botox treatments. A co-worker of mine recommended Bella Medspa.
I was very impressed with the staff and prices. Due to scheduling conflicts, I was not able to make my appointment. I was surprised how quickly the staff was able to accommodate to my needs.
Thank you Bella Medspa for such wonderful service. You have a client for life!

At my last treatment session Cindi told me that you were running a special that I was unaware of. This reduced the price of the session. I know some people can easily afford this procedure but I cannot. You are not only up front about everything, but it always seems like you go out of your way to provide me with everything you possibly can. I really appreciate your service. By the way, my results so far are fantastic. Thank you again

I'm not usually one to give testimonials but I wanted to say that three weeks ago I had my first treatment performed and the results are dramatic. I was told it may take a few treatments, but in just one treatment I would say that 90% of the hair in the treatment area is gone and I am thrilled! I would recommend this to anyone who is sick of tweezing, waxing, shaving, etc.

Ever since middle school, I'd been incredibly self conscious and embarrassed about my dark, coarse facial hair on my upper lip and chin. Waxing never worked and I swear bleaching it made more hair grow. Finally I decided something more drastic needed to be done! After researching many places, I came upon Bella Medspa. It had the most reasonable prices I'd seen, and on top of that, they have awesome specials all the time! Not only that, I found the staff to be wonderful and helpful and in all ways professional. I felt completely secure with the laser because they thoroughly explained everything about the procedure. And I'm ECSTATIC to say that I have wonderful results!!!! I no longer have to worry about any unsightly facial hair. Today was my last treatment and I feel so awesome!! It's wonderful to look into the mirror and see beautiful, hairless skin. I love my results so much that I'm thinking about getting my underarms done.
Thanks so much Bella Medspa!! :)

I recently used Bella Med Spa for laser hair removal, after over 7 years of electrolysis. For over thirty years I have had a hormonal imbalance which left me with manlike facial hair. I will never go back to any other hair removal. My skin is so much softer after just one treatment, I get so many compliments. I was always scared of the treatment but now would not do anything but laser. I thank you for the kind and thorough explanation during and after treatments. It will continue to be a pleasure to use Bella Med Spa. The large removal treatment centers cannot give the personalized treatment you have given me. I thank you for the life changing experience.
Thanks once again and I look forward to continuing at Bella Med Spa
