Hair Removal

*Voted Austin’s Best for Hair Removal by Chronicle, CitySearch and Rare Magazine*

Imagine having smooth, hair free skin without shaving, waxing, plucking, or bleaching your unwanted hair. Using the latest Candela laser technology known as the GentleLASE lasing process, we now offer safe, fast, effective treatments for both men and women.

The Candela GentleLASE system safely and effectively treats a wide variety of cosmetic skin problems that before now were difficult or impossible to treat. Our GentleLASE laser technology is known for its ability to provide permanent hair reduction.

For many years lasers have been used to treat a variety of medical cosmetic procedures including treatment of facial and leg veins, age spots and rejuvenating the skin on the face. The GentleLASE System, a revolutionary long-pulse high energy alexandrite laser emits a gentle beam of light that harmlessly passes through the skin where it is absorbed by the target. The laser energy is transformed into heat, leaving the surrounding skin unaffected.

The skin is further protected during treatment by a Dynamic Cooling Device™ where cryogen is sprayed onto the skin cooling the upper layers and providing patients with increased comfort. The GentleLASE selectivity helps to protect the skin, while effectively treating the unwanted hair, vascular or pigmented lesion, or wrinkle.

Unlike other treatments, the GentleLASE process is easy, requiring no creams or gels, no pre-treatment waxing, and no needles. In fact, laser hair removal is a medical breakthrough. Treatments are comfortable, treating hair follicles in a fraction of the time of other methods, using only the gentle power of laser light. And here at Alite Laser, unlike any other laser facility, we use a unique method to mark the skin, invented by owner Heidi Fischer herself, which insures greater accuracy in treating the hair without missing spots.

Traditional hair removal techniques, such as shaving, plucking, waxing and depilatory creams provide only temporary relief. Until now, the only recognized way to remove hair permanently has been by electrolysis – which can be tedious, time-consuming and uncomfortable. The GentleLASE System safely removes unwanted body hair without damaging the delicate pores and structures of the skin. Facial and bikini areas are usually completed in about fifteen minutes; legs, backs and larger areas can take longer.

The Candela GentleYAG system safely and effectively treats a wide variety of cosmetic skin problems that before now were difficult or impossible to treat. Our GentleYAG laser technology is known for its ability to provide permanent hair reduction, regardless of skin type or color, as well as treatment capabilities for pigmented and vascular lesions, and wrinkles.

For many years lasers have been used to treat a variety of medical cosmetic procedures including treatment of facial and leg veins, age spots and rejuvenating the skin on the face. The GentleYAG System, a revolutionary long-pulse high energy laser emits a gentle beam of light that harmlessly passes through the skin to the hair follicle where it is absorbed. The laser energy is transformed into heat, which destroys the hair follicle leaving the surrounding skin unaffected.

Our Candela GentleYAG system can uniquely remove unwanted body hair on all skin types and colors without damaging the delicate pores and structures of the skin.

As Austin’s hair removal specialists, we wouldn’t be complete without waxing. We have been offering hair removal services here in Austin for 20 years and are experts at waxing – which could be quite a tricky undertaking. We specialize in bikini waxing for women (especially Brazilians) and back waxing for men. Lately, the Brazilian bikini has become very popular, and we specialize in the proper technique. We use different types of wax (both strip wax and hard wax) for different parts of the body, in order to have least discomfort and maximum effectiveness. Anyone who might have had a ‘bad’ Brazilian wax will strongly warn you to make sure your practitioner is very experienced at this technique. We welcome you to come by for a bikini, leg, back or any other body part wax and try it out for yourself.  Be sure to check our pricing for our $10 Off 1st wax offer.
Electrolysis has been around since the 1890s getting rid of unwanted hair.  A tiny needle is inserted into the hair follicle. The needle is heated and will damage the tissues in the hair producing area, so that follicle if treated in the right stage of growth, will usually not produce another hair. A series of treatments are needed to effectively treat all the hair in an area, because only one hair at a time is being treated.  Electrolysis is very effective over time and will eliminate most of your unwanted hair.
Recently, laser hair removal has virtually replaced this age-old technique.  But there are instances that electrolysis is still needed.  If you qualify for laser hair removal, it will be less expensive (in the long run), more comfortable and less time-consuming than electrolysis. But if you have light-colored hair (white, grey, red, or blonde), then you would only qualify for electrolysis, not laser.

Electrolysis also needs to be done on the eyebrows, since laser is not exact enough and may eliminate too much brow hair. A short, free consultation can determine which technique you will be a candidate for.  Until very recently, most lasers were not able to effectively treat the finer, thinner, lighter-colored hair. Now, with our advanced lasers, we can effectively treat even quite fine hairs, as long as they have some pigment. To see if your unwanted hair is best suited for laser or electrolysis, call us today at 512-328-1555 for information and/or to schedule your free consultation.
