Update 2-6-12: American Laser Centers filed bankruptcy in December 2011. It is no longer honoring the $25 Coupon described below. That may or may not change in the future. There is nothing the Orange County Court can do about this.
Here is important information about the American Laser Centers class action settlement.
The settlement has been approved by the Court and is now in effect:
1. You can use the Postcard coupon that was mailed to you. It is good for one of two free products or as $25 off another product. Or you can download this Coupon. It is valid from May 20, 2011 to May 19, 2012. If you select either Vivite Hydrating Facial Cleanser or Travel Kit then you will not have to pay sales tax even if that exceeds the $25.

2. The deadline to submit Claim Forms was May 9, 2011; it is too late to submit one now. There are no exceptions.
The Claim Forms have been processed. Checks were mailed out on July 8, 2011. In most cases, the Claimant received 22% of the amount claimed. In a few instances, the amount claimed was left blank or was not supportable. In those instances, Laser Center records were used to determine the amount of the Claim. Some claims were rejected entirely because they were submitted too late or the class member received treatment outside the period of time covered by the refund part of the settlement.
Please wait until July 22, 2011 to see if you receive your check. If you do not, or you do not understand how your refund was calculated, you can contact Lakeshore Law Center.
