Consumer Alert : Jamie Fettig
Date: May 1st, 2012
Details: We often hear the term "It just takes one person...". Unfortunately that individual now exists within the medical and aesthetic laser market. From unfounded claims to improper business practice, Jamie Fettig's laundry list has unfortunately grown and is inconsistent with the ethics and professionalism of the industry, in our opinion.
With this morality in mind, YOLO Medical Inc. will not use its established position within the laser industry to engage in an involved dialogue about Fettig's character, but does feel compelled to inform existing and potential members of the medical and aesthetic community:
- YOLO Medical Inc. is the ONLY authorized North American distributor of the YOLO Curve and Lapex (BCS, 2000, and Pro) series.
- YOLO Medical Inc. is the ONLY manufacturer-authorized Training and Certification facility in North America for the YOLO Curve and Lapex (BCS, 2000, and Pro) series.
- YOLO Medical Inc. ONLY includes Certification and Training to clinics who have purchased their devices though YOLO Medical Inc.
- YOLO Medical Inc. is the ONLY manufacturer authorized Repair and Service Center in North America (other repair offerings will NOT be using OEM parts).
- YOLO Medical Inc. products are the ONLY products in North America deemed as Warranty devices by the manufacturer.
- Initial "Marketing Material" packages being offered by secondary parties include imagery and reference trademark names owned by YOLO Medical Inc. making them illegal for unauthorized use.
- YOLO Medical Inc. WILL actively engage in legal action towards ANY party/clinic who has purchased a device from a secondary party and seeks to use ANY of YOLO's licensed Marketing Material (currently being offered without YOLO Medical Inc.'s consent), or trademarks including but not limited to: YOLO Curve, Lapex, Lapex BCS, Lapex BCS Pro, Lapex Pro, Lapex 2000, and Lapex BCS 2000 in an improper manner. Such use of YOLO Medical Inc.'s Marketing Material or Trademarks without the expressed consent of YOLO Medical Inc. is a legal offence and subject to legal action.
- YOLO Medical Inc. is the only company registered with the FDA for the sale and distribution of : YOLO Curve and the Lapex family of products (Lapex BCS, Lapex 2000, Lapex Pro, etc.)
Every industry is subject to fair competition. YOLO Medical Inc. recognizes the advantage that competition offers the laser market, and respects its competitors that do so in a fair, legal, and moral manner. With that being said, it is imperative that individuals looking to purchase a non-certified YOLO Curve or Lapex device in the North American market do so with extreme care. Engage in active due diligence prior to purchasing, and include your legal counsel in written contract agreements.
As the old adage claims: "If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is". What may seem like an initial purchase savings can quickly and easily become a certification, warranty, or legal expense nightmare.
