CHARLOTTE, N.C., Oct. 27, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Ally Lending, the personal lending arm of Ally Bank, a subsidiary of Ally Financial Inc. (NYSE: ALLY), today announced the availability of patient financing options at all locations of Milan Laser Hair Removal, the largest laser hair removal company in the United States. Hair treatment and removal is a billion-dollar industry in the U.S.1 with no signs of slowing down.
Ally Lending and Milan Laser first launched their partnership in January with two store locations, quickly expanding to all 96 locations nationwide within nine months. With this milestone, Ally Lending continues to build on its team's strong legacy in the consumer healthcare lending market, an expertise that was added through the acquisition of Health Credit Services LLC (HCS) in October 2019. In healthcare, Ally Lending's financing solutions encompass cosmetic, dental, audiology, orthopedic, vision and fertility treatments, and provide patients with affordable digital lending options for sought-after and, often life-changing, care.
With the addition of lending options from Ally, Milan Laser's patients can now pay for services over time, choosing the laser hair removal package that best fits their needs while protecting their cash flow and savings. Ally Lending's digital, consumer-friendly platform makes the borrowing experience quick and simple.
"There are so many health and wellness procedures that consumers avoid getting when they need them or put off altogether because of cost," said Hans Zandhuis, head of Ally Lending. "Together with our partners at Milan Laser, we're making it easier for people to access treatments in a more affordable way. Not only is the process fully digital, but also borrowers can get pre-qualified with zero impact to their credit."
Milan Laser provides a safe and effective way to remove unwanted body hair, permanently. All of Milan Laser's clinics run efficiently with three to five employees, including a Candela Authorized Practitioner who is overseen by a board-certified physician.
"At Milan, we're always evaluating the best partnerships to make laser hair removal affordable for as many people as possible, while offering world-class service. Ally delivers on both," said Colleen Papek, chief operating officer at Milan Laser Hair Removal. "Ally Lending's partnership has truly exceeded our expectations, from their hands-on training of our Milan field team and analysis of data to maximize the financing options we provide our clients, to their knowledgeable and responsive customer service."
In addition to financing options in the health and wellness sector, Ally Lending also offers personal loans for home improvement needs, auto maintenance and servicing, and installment payment options for retail purchases. To learn more, visit allylending.com.
