I really enjoy reading some of the more ""negative"" comments by people. Most of the things they are saying come from either one bad experience or they didn't read their contract ...

If you can't tell, some of the 5 star reviews are written by island management. The two that recommend the magic bed are so obvious that they should be taken off of here. Discou...

I have been to other places for laser hair removal, this is the only one I would recommend! My technician is professional, neat and clean. My results are amazing. Will not go any place else even though there are places closer to me. Eman is the best technician ever, all staff are very friendly! more

DON'T GO TO ISLAND MEDSPA FOR LASER HAIR REMOVAL!!!!! \r Would NEVER recommend this ""spa"". The technician turnover for laser hair removal is very high and they have technicians using machines that don't even know how to use. My experience: I started out with a well trained technician and she left the spa. As I was used to being with the same technician, I was very suprised that I was not notiifed of their departure. They set me up with an technician that I was assured had been doing laser for a long time. My first appointment with her was HELL! She didn't know how to turn on machine and didnt know how to use. Left the spa with burned lady parts. When speaking to the manager I was even more disappointed. After many excuses he bascially told me burned skin is common and he was going to look into what had happened and call me back . Never heard from him again. I finally transferred locations to Tualitin and got set up with a new technician. All was going well and I was very happy with her. When I asked about my previous appt with the opther location she informed me the previous technician had setting 3x what they should have been and that is why she burned me. She was shocked! 3rd appt in I call to reschedule appt and am notified all new staff. If I had not paid so much money up fromt, I would never go back and call it quits with this establishment. I am looking into process of finding out who regulates these type of salons and let them know about my experience. Hopefully it will be closed before they permanently scar someone! more

I recently began Vela Shape Treatments at the Med Spa, after inquiring about it during my laser hair removal treatments. At first, I was skeptical about how effective a non-invasive treatment could be. After talking to their technician and getting the break-down of how the procedure works,tips on speeding up results (and her patience with all my questions). I decided to give it a shot. I couldn't be more pleased that I did. After only 6 treatments I've seen great improvement. I feel like a whole new woman! If your'e looking into this procedure for yourself. I urge you to go here. more

I've been going to Islands for a few months now to get laser hair removal. The staff and Technicians are very professional and friendly. I'm very satisfied with my results. more

Editorial review from Citysearch 4/19/2013

So, i just signed up with islands the other day, and i must say.... by far one of the cleanest most friendly establishments i have ever been to. tanning or not. They quality of tan is far beyond all other tanning salons i have visited. i recommend them to everyone I know. If you are on the fence on where to go for all of your tanning and medical spa needs, i highly recommend you check these guys out. they have 10 different locations to make all of your tanning needs very accessible more

2 thumbs way up! I have been tanning at Islands for several years now, and I would not tan anywhere else! Even though I have a little commute to get there, Its well worth every mile! The people are professional, classy, and informative! The Salon hosts the most up to date equipment and I have never been disappointed! The beds are clean, the facilities are nice, and my tan is awesome! Highly recommend this to be your ONLY SALON! Thanks Islands Tanning! more

DO NOT GO HERE, Horrible business, should be investigated for unethical business practices. STAY FAR FAR FAR AWAY. more

Editorial review from Citysearch 9/25/2012

I signed up for this ONLY to write this HORRIBLE review. I purchased a year long package in which I specifically went through the financials with the person who sold me it including the total and the monthly payment BEFORE I signed. I am not an idiot and am very careful with my finances and things I sign. That was a year ago last month and somehow, my bank account was still deducted the monthly payment. I called in today and the attitude I received was definitely colder than any of those beds. They said my contract was not for a year, it was for 18 months and I still owed for the last 6 months. I asked for them to pull up my contract, they said corporate had it and THE ONLY WAY TO REACH THEM IS BY FAX! Now, once again, I am not an idiot and am wary of a business plan that operates its communication via a format that only business use, yet their clientele are individuals? This is all very shady and inappropriate and the only reason I can fathom for being so unreachable is they are consistently getting bad complaints like mine. Why else HIDE??? if I missed a fine print saying something different than the discussed terms, yes, it is bad on me, but specifically composing a contract to hide the total amount that doesn't match up with what I agreed to, is just wrong. I suggest going somewhere else. The place was fine, the beds were good, but this business model is just wrong. Please don't fall victim to this place. more

I love islands tanning! The staff are all friendly, and the service is great! Im doing the laser hair removal and vela shape and i have so happy with the results im seeing. If you arent sure where to go for tanning, vela or laser check out islands, they always have a good deal for you. more

I've had the best experience with Islands tanning!! Bought a laser hair removal package there a while ago and I'm loving it. I'm only half way through my treatments and hardly have to shave! more

Editorial review from Citysearch 9/11/2012

Islands tanning is the only tanning place I will actually go to. Employees are the best and so friendly, everything is super CLEAN! more

Editorial review from Citysearch 9/11/2012

Islands has exceeded any expectations I had before I started doing laser hair removal treatments at the Wilsonville location. Besides the fact that I got a great deal, the staff has been very accommodating. I am very impressed with the little things they do, such as send reminder emails the day before my treatments. I would recommend Islands for anybody. more

Editorial review from Citysearch 9/11/2012

Islands tanning is AMAZING!!! Every time i go in there the employee's always have smiles on their faces and are very helpful! The lumi bed is absolutely amazing!! I send all of my friends here! more

Editorial review from Citysearch 9/10/2012

I got laser hair removal at tualatin and couldn't be happier. The laser techs are friendly and efficient. I recommend islands to all my friends seeking laser hair removal. The rest of the staff there is great too. The managers are charming and helpful and the girls are always sweet. more

Editorial review from Citysearch 6/27/2012

I really enjoy reading some of the more ""negative"" comments by people. Most of the things they are saying come from either one bad experience or they didn't read their contract signing up. I have tanned here for more than a year and am completely happy with my contract! When i signed up I read the entire thing and knew what i was getting myself into. There are no ""hidden"" fees whatsoever. As far as the ""high pressure"" sales people, they are doing their job by trying to help give you the most for your money! I get offers to upgrade to better packages and sometimes I do and sometimes i don't. I have never been harassed into buying a package and whoever claims they were harassed is a joke. You are an adult and have the ability to say no. Every staff person I have worked with has been extremely knowledgeable and only wants what's best for my skin type. I don't tan easily and so I use other products they have like self tanning spray and I also do spray tans. I would have never known about other ways of tanning unless whoever was working told me. As far as their corporate fax, after reading some of these awful reviews I asked last time i went in how it works. The reason they do that is so you can write a letter explaining what you need/ have concerns about. If you called yelling, i'm sure a lot wouldn't get accomplished. They don't ask for your personal information, simply a later stating what you need. I feel sorry for those who have had a bad experience, but like I said, I am completely happy with my contract there and wouldn't go anywhere else! more

This is the first review I've ever 5/17/2012

This is the first review I've ever written (good or bad) but unfortunately I felt this had to be done to warn as many people as possible about my experience. First off, tanning salons are notoriously shady businesses because people who tan don't want to drive across town to do it - if the location is right, the high-pressure salespeople can burn a lot of bridges an still usually keep a relatively full clientele. Now for Islands tanning: this company sets a new standard in an already dishonest industry. The owner John Guyette is the worst kind of used car salesman and honestly the last of a dieing breed due to the speed at which information travels today. Very rarely do you meet a salesperson who will look you in the eye and not just twist the truth to make something sound better than it is but ACTUALLY FLAT OUT LIE. Unfortunately the vast majority of his salespeople are cut directly from his image. The corporate environment is simply this: sell and up-sell by ANY MEANS necessary: lie, create confusion, hide as much as possible, just get their signature on the contract. Once your signature is on the contract you have to pay 6 months before you can cancel, and after that it will cost $200 - there will be no exceptions period. And once you've canceled it's over right? Wrong. I was finding 'accounting errors' on my credit card for months afterward. Finally I canceled the credit card associated with this account because after i sent multiple FAX's (FAX is the only way to contact corporate - no emails - no phone number) no one would get back to me and the 'mistakes' continued. After i cancelled my credit card I received a letter in the mail stating i had been sent to collections! What a drain on my time and energy! Fortunately for me I've thoroughly documented this whole process but the amount of time I've spent dealing with this situation is very depressing. All I can say is if you want to tan and the only place close by is Islands tanning make sure you get all of the details in writing and examine the contract thoroughly before you sign anything (at home preferably, without one of his piranha salespeople breathing down your neck). Guaranteed you will find discrepancies between what you were told and what the contract actually says. Keep a close eye on your credit card statements and watch for the inevitable class action lawsuit! Unfortunately for the poor unsuspecting franchisees the end is very near. more

Islands Tanning is the place to be! 5/15/2012

Islands Tanning is the place to be! Seriously, all of their beds are top notch and they have so much more to offer than just your basic tanning bed that you'll find at other tanning saloons. The lumi bed is to die for! I used it a couple times a week for just a few weeks and already saw incredible results! I havent tried the fit wrap yet but ive heard wonderful things about it so thats next on my list! The Islands staff is always so helpful and knowledgeable about the equipment. I would most def. rate this place an A+!!!! more

Seriously, this place is awful. Look 3/18/2012

Seriously, this place is awful. Look how coincidentally all of the 5 star reviews occurred on March 17th 2012, the day their groupon deal came out. Because all of the REAL reviews of this place on google reviews and at the BBB are awful! When you have to get your staff to write fake reviews, something is wrong. What terrible customer service. I will say outright that JOSH IS A LIAR AND AN IDIOT!!!! PS - they overcharge by 50% than every other place for the laser removal package deals, and no where else will charge you hidden fee's. The best part about this shady operation; you can only get a hold of someone in ""corporate"" via a fax - what a great idea!! (sarcasm) I want to send all my information and receipts and bank account number to a random fax number. Very crafty. DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME! There are a million places better, cheaper, cleaner, and without Josh! more

Islands is great! Couldn't ask for a 3/17/2012

Islands is great! Couldn't ask for a more helpful crew that actually care about my needs. 5 out of 5 across the board :). Tanning + medical spa = best combo ever! more

Love this place! I first heard about 3/17/2012

Love this place! I first heard about these guys thru facebook actually my friends were telling me how they won free tanning lotion and packages etc. So I went it and was surprised by how knowledgeable the staff was. They dont only do tanning there either. They have a lumi bed aka red light thearapy bed! They let me try it out before my tan and my skin felt amazing after, super soft! After going a few times i find out they have a laser tech to do laser hair removal :) I have done this is the past and this place is the best. The prices are unbeatable and they just got a new top notch laser! I AM NOW TAN & hair free :) thank you islands, can;t wait to laser the rest of my body haha so addicting more
