Ok so I’m a newbie to cosmetic injections. I got a Mother’s Day cash present (stop with the spa certificates already) so I call Dr. Kronberg. I used to see her in high school 25 years ago. After the bad review about “hidden charges” I actually emailed about the concern. I got a call back immediately. No hidden charges. Joyce assures me. Good enough. I want a “forehead lift” or what I really want is my eyebrows to go back up so I can arch and make my eyes look wider. Hey, I’m 45. It happens. The building is hidden behind the hospital. It’s a small brown building that stands out the second time you drive around it. Try to not miss it the first time like I did. There is paid parking with security (love it). They validate (love it). I waited 15 minutes after the paperwork and they have good magazines, thank you. 15 minutes is a lot longer with Popular Mechanics. I’m placed in my room and wait another 15 minutes and here she comes. She looks the same as she did 25 years ago: a good sign in this business. She tells me she heard about my pricing concerns and wants to know she always discusses pricing first. And she does. It turns out my price will be half of what I was expecting. What I learned is “area” is pretty general. I think it’s also about how bad you’re actually sagging. The less you’re sagging, the less product. As far as I’m concerned I need all she’s got on hand, but I also learned “placement” makes a big difference (another thing to understand in the “area” issue). This is why I see a doctor over a RN. While both may be able to do this, I appreciate the extra years of education. In my case, it was cheaper. They make face creams more expensive that will never, ever do this. I also don’t get cheap haircuts to those who can relate. I love a good deal, but seriously, I do prefer to spend where it counts. Ok so it stings. It takes 10 seconds. I gave natural birth twice so this is a breeze. I get the rundown of what to do next and I’m out the door (one hour start to finish). I really can’t believe how great it looks. Now this isn’t for everyone. For those of you who are considering this I will tell you this. Get $300 in cash and go. You can get SOMETHING spectacular done for $300 or less. I’m happy. I liked her. I can arch my eyebrows beautifully. Great job.

I had laser hair removal on my bikini line in 2001. Every laser pulse felt like someone was popping a BIG rubber band on my skin. After a few sessions, the hair removal was completed but I ended up with rings marked/burned on my skin that took a year or more to fade. What a different experience at Body Envy!! The staff spent a full consultation hour with me before I even gave them a penny or signed a single document. They explained all the procedures, expectations of results, and how they would only do a certain number of body areas at a time. (I originally went for a Brazillian and upper lip, but also added Photofacial.) The staff is professional and really knows what they are doing. I really like that they are so concerned with their customers, that they always do a med-check before any appointment and let you know if any might affect your treatment. They have also been very considerate of my reschedules (I had a period of busy travel in the fall). And I love that I get appointment reminders in email, as well as, a phone call. The personal touch is wonderful. The results have been fantastic. I have basically no hair left - an occasional fuzz that I shave every once in while. A bonus was that I had a C-section scar that faded considerably with the treatment. The photofacial far exceeded my expectations. I have never had compliments on my skin and now receive them regularly. I even get asked what my skincare regime is. For someone who had high school acne scars 20 years later that is HUGE! So, now I am doing hair removal on undearm and chin. Also, I will be alternating that with Photocorrection (i.e. Photofacial for other parts of the body) on my arms and chest (that area where your shirt is open and exposed to the sun). Needless to say I am more than pleased. I must be - I drive from Galveston to go to Body Envy, bypassing many, many other spas along the way.
I had IPL on my legs, bikini line and buttocks at Body Envy. Initial price comparisons showed them to be the cheapest. They explained the process clearly, and the expected results. There was never a wait, when your appointment starts they are ready, which is the idea of an appointment, but seems unusual elsewhere. They were flexible with appointments, they charge a fee if you don't give them 24 hours notice to reschedule, and are upfront about this. Professional treatments, clean and hygienic, I didn't shave perfectly each time and whilst it doesn't help the effectiveness, they worked around it. Zapping my bikini line I was kept covered up and didn't feel uncomfortable. Friendly and welcoming, always offered something to drink, convenient location although parking can be a problem during the school run as they are 2 blocks from a school. The treatment itself; The treatment works on growing hair, as not all hair grows at any one time the treatments are spread over several months, I had 1 every 6 weeks so 36 weeks. For the treatment to be effective the skin needs to be as light as possible, so no sun exposure during the treaments. After several months with no sun I had some very white legs. The session length depends on the area of skin, sessions are split up to make them more manageable, my longest I had was 2.5 hours. There is some pain at the time, on bones or near nerves seemed worse for me, ice packs used prevented any lasting soreness, the next day I was fine. One session I managed to fall asleep so it can't be too painful. I finished the last treatment 6 weeks ago. The results to date have been great, a lot less hair, none in a lot of places, because it happens over several months I have forgotten how hairy I was. Overall I don't know a better method for permanent hair removal or a better place to have this done.
I have read the reviews for Dr. Kronberg and I'm appalled by the one posted on 2/22/12 by "angry customer". Clearly there was some sort of misunderstanding as Dr. Kronberg is the most professional and ethical doctors I have ever gone to. I went to her 15 years ago as a teenager for mole removal to be sure it was not anything serious. She also helped me overcome acne as a teen with wonderful creams. My mom went to Dr. Kronberg for years and always had nothing but positive things to say about Dr. Kronberg. In fact, Dr. Kronberg's office had framed photos of my mother to help show off the products Dr. Kronberg would use for my mom. Now, in my early 30's I am going to Dr. Kronberg for Dysport (like botox but better) to help with early signs of aging and to keep my skin looking young and healthy. She answered every question I had and was so gentle when administering the Dysport. She was patient and calming when explaining everything to me. She's a wonderful doctor and respected by me personally. The cost was never a question and helped me achieve my goals by spending what I could afford. I recommend her to anyone looking for a genuine doctor who is not "in it for greedy purposes" as the other review stated. She is a sweetheart who has nothing but good intentions and is well-respected doctor across the country. Research for yourself. I'm 100% satisfied with Dr. Kronberg and my results and I will continue to go to her for any of my dermatology needs as well as anything I need that she provides from her services. She's got an A++ from me and my mom!! The staff is just as polite and helpful as ever and I love that they always answer my questions via phone or in person with the professionalism expected!!!
I had been wanting to do laser hair removal in a sensitive lady area for a while. I decided about 8 months ago to do it and started doing research. Calling the different places around town, I found this treatment might be expensive and just maybe not worth it. I saw the review page for BodyEnvy on Citysearch and decided to give them a call for an estimate. They provided the cheapest price by at least a HALF of what other places were charging. Of course this made me skeptical about the effectiveness of the treatment but I figured going in for a free consultation wouldn't hurt. For my consultation, the technician fully explained all the details of the treatment. She talked about the risks, effectiveness, a list of do's and dont's, and cost. She did a test spot to make sure my skin could handle it and sent me home. A few weeks later i was back to start my treatment. The tech made me feel super comfortable in my sort of uncomfortable position. She also gives 120% to her job, making sure she gets everything. I was happy to report that in one month there was serious hair reduction due to the treatments. 5 Sessions later and I'm pretty much hair free. I would say about 95% reduction. No joke. Infact, I'm so happy with the treatment and the price that I'm getting another area done. I would recommend anyone use this company. I have told all my friends that live in Houston to give them a call for a consultation.
When I first heard about laser hair removal I was very skeptical. There was always the fear that I would spend alot of money and get nothing in return. Now, that I have experienced treatment at Body Envy and have gotten the best results in only 4 treatments, I would reccomend Body Envy to anyone out there who is looking for great service and wonderful results. The prices were unbelievable!! I searched around and they have the lowest prices of all. They are very flexible on appointments and will fit you in or change your appointment as needed. The staff is incredible as well. I just love the girls!! Karina is so very sweet and is always there to answer any questions you might have. Felicia is wonderful!! She makes the treatments fun and I always enjoy talking to her during my visits...She is very knowledgeable in her field of work. You can ask her anything and she always has an answer to your questions...she is very honest and will always tell you the best way to treat your skin to get the best results...I have had only 4 treatments and with the results I have gotten so far, I couldn't ask for anything better...I am so impressed that I am already going to start on my second area of treatment. So anyone who wants awesome service from a wonderful staff with awesome results go to Body Envy, I promise that you will not be disappointed!! :)
First off, I had shopped around and decided to try the free consultation here after reading the great reviews and because I didn't feel the sales pressure I did from other places to get more and more expensive services. It's a very warm and inviting environment, right when you walk in and are met by Karina who is super sweet and answered all of my questions, even showed me her results with hair removal. Then there was Felicia, the IPL specialist. She is so professional, very knowledgeable, and super, super easy to get along with. I was nervous about how it would hurt and it really wasn't bad, definitely not as bad as waxing! Felicia made me feel super comfortable; important since I was getting my bikini area done. I have to say that now that I am done with my treatments, I miss going there and visiting with them!!!! I never had any problems getting appointments that were convenient for me, I even did some treatments on my lunch break. I am most happy with the results, I think the only person that is more happy than me is my Husband:-) I LOVE not having to be a slave to the razor anymore, it cut my shower times in half. I would totally recommend IPL and I Body Envy is the best place to get it!
I use to be a tweezer girl. You can easily find 7 tweezers in the house and I am still constantly shopping for better ones. Not mentioning that I have to keep a pair of tweezer in every bag for my face. My hair was so dark and corse that makes me ashamed of wearing shorts, skirts and of course, swimming suit. Shaving will just make it worse with all the red bumps and tiny little black spots. Hair, will grow back in just 1/2 day. I have never considered laser and treatment of any kind until I met Karina. Her personal experience brought me hope. Me hair free? Yey~~ I was concerned about the price, but it really was incomparable. I went for another consultation elsewhere just to be sure and the price of one area was the price of my entire package in Body Envy. I couldn't be more thankful to Karina and Felicia. Felicia make my entire treatment easy and relaxing. She is fun yet professional. I am so thankful to the entire team of Body Envy to bring my confidense and self-esteem back. I definitely recommend this place to everybody who need hair removal.
I loved my experience at Body Envy. I originally went in to get laser hair removal on my bikini line. Karina (at the front desk), was very polite and knowledgeable and explained what the procedure entailed, cost (you buy a package of 6 typically), and how to prepare. I went in for my first treatment nervous as could be, (I was about to get my "area" zapped with a laser!) but Felicia, the Specialist, was cheerful, good-humored, and talked me through what was going to happen. As I lay on the table waiting for the first official zap that would lead me to a hair free bikini line to arrive, I hold my breath and tense up ready for the pain, she puts the laser to my “area” and zap! To my astonishment the pain isn’t bad at all! I am used to getting full Brazilian waxes and comparatively speaking, the laser was like nothing! I was so happy with the results from the first treatment that I upgraded to a full brazilian for the remaining 5 sessions. I can’t wait to do my underarms!
Alrighty! My bikini line is looking fantastic and just in time for bathing suit weather. Here go the nitty-gritty details: You need to do the whole series of 6 sessions-- don't try to skimp or you won't get results. No, the laser won't get rid of *all* your hair. It's good for about 90% reduction. I still have some strays but they are fine instead of course-- nothin' a little nair can't handle. And you can get touch-ups, which I may just do. My fiance is lookin' good but will also need further touch-ups (he's a hairy guy!!). Sorry, TMI. The scoop on the photofacials: I did 4 sessions instead of the recommended 6. My skin is stubborn to respond to anything (I actually fly back to San Francisco for facials with my esthetician because my skin is so stubborn) and the sun spots I was hoping would go away only faded slightly. That said, I did notice a reduction in acne which was awesome. Would I do it all again? Absolutely.
