Laser Hair Removal

Imagine having smooth, hair-free skin without shaving, waxing, plucking, or bleaching your unwanted hair. At Alite Laser Hair Removal we offer two different state-of-the-art Lasers to treat ALL SKIN TYPES. We use Candela GentleLase and GentleYag. The GentleLase is ideal for lighter-toned skin, while the GentleYag was made to treat darker-toned skin both safely and effectively. Both lasers have large spot sizes to treat the area quickly and cover everything. Both lasers also have a built-in cooling system that will help minimize any discomfort from the laser.

Our laser staff is Austin Laser Hair Removal Professionals ranging from 5-15 years of experience. So, we can assure you that you will always be with an experienced technician to give you the best service and results. We also have a special way we mark the skin to almost guarantee no missed areas. We always offer free consultations to go over everything in detail to make sure you understand the process and what to expect. We are more than happy to just do a consultation, however, if you are interested in getting started that same day we also offer that as an option. Our staff is knowledgeable and friendly and strives for customer satisfaction.

How Permanent Is Laser Hair Removal?

Laser hair removal is not permanent. Laser hair treatment involves heating the hair follicles, which, in turn, makes the hair follicles dormant for a long period — much longer than waxing or shaving.  Even though laser hair removal procedures are advertised as a type of “permanent” hair removal treatment, laser hair removal treatments only reduce the number of unwanted hairs on a given area of the skin: they do not permanently remove unwanted hair. While you cannot remove 100 percent of all hair follicles, laser treatment can reduce the number of hair-producing follicles by 75 to 90 percent.

According to research, laser treatments are most effective in patients with dark hair and light skin tones; however, they can be used successfully on all skin types. Also, for laser treatments to be effective, the American Association of Dermatology recommends that procedures need to be performed by a board-certified dermatologist.

Have you ever imagined getting rid of unwanted hair without plucking or waxing the hair? Well, that does not have to be an imagination anymore because, at Alite Laser, we offer a full range of hair removal services, including waxing, electrolysis, and laser hair removal. If you reside in Austin TX, feel free to give us a call. Our spa consists of specialists who are prepared to take care of your hair removal needs with the highest level of precision.

Is Getting Laser Hair Removal Worth It?

Laser treatment is worth it.

First, the procedure does not permanently remove hair from treated areas but will reduce the number of body hairs after they start to grow back. Second, you can have this done on any part of your body- neck, legs, or arms for example and there’s no limit as long as that area has been cleared by a doctor beforehand. The fast process only takes about 1 second per pulse which means you’ll be getting in and out quickly with minimal discomfort!

If you are looking for hair removal services in Austin TX, Alite Laser should be on your radar. We use the latest technology to help you get rid of hair on areas that the AAD deems appropriate, including the:

  • Arms,
  • Chin,
  • Chest,
  • Bikini line, and
  • Face (except for the eye area)

For patients with light skin types, we use the CandelaGentleLASE, which has been voted “Best Hair Removal Laser.” For patients with tanned skin or darker skin types, we use the Candela GentleYAG, which is safe for patients whose skin has more pigment and is effective with little discomfort. Schedule an appointment at our spa today and experience the best laser hair removal services in Austin TX.

How Long Does Hair Have to Be for Laser Removal?

You do not have to have hair on the treatment area before your session. In fact, you will have to shave the area 24 hours before your session as this will allow the laser to locate the follicle faster.

How Painful Is Laser Hair Removal?

When it comes to the level of pain, laser hair treatment falls between shaving (pain-free) and plucking (ouch! that really hurts). During the session, you may not feel the heat but you may feel as though the technician is snapping your skin with a rubber band. You may feel some pain, but how painful the procedure depends on which body part is undergoing the treatment. You may experience redness and irritation (similar to what you feel after getting sunburned) after the session.

Frequently Asked Questions

Laser Hair Removal in Austin

If the hair you want to have treated for laser hair removal is dark in color & somewhat coarse you are a good candidate. In general, it needs to be light brown or darker in color. Our laser hair removal in Austin will not work on blonde, grey, or red hair.

If you are pregnant we do not recommend treating with laser hair removal, though we do offer waxing services in Austin and electrolysis which are safe for pregnancy.

After your laser hair removal treatment, you can expect the hair to shed out from the follicle within 2-3 weeks after which you will be hairless in the treated area until the next hair growth cycle begins to come in.

For anything below the neck, the hair will begin to come back in at about the 6 to 8-week mark & that is when you would want to be scheduled for your next visit to catch the hair in the next cycle for the best long term results. The hair that comes in will be thinner/finer & there will be less of it each time. For the face, growth cycles are between the 4 to 6-week mark.

While results can vary from person to person and body area to body area, industry standards are anywhere between 6 to 10 consistent treatments where most people are happy with their results.

All of our Austin laser hair removal machines are classified as permanent hair reduction. After a series of treatments, you will likely see little or no hair growth. However, no hair removal laser can claim to permanently remove hair. Hormonal changes can produce new hair growth. Also, certain medications can cause new hair growth.

Be sure that you are not on any kind of medication that makes you sun-sensitive like Accutane for acne & certain antibiotics as well as topicals like retinol & retinA.

Avoid tanning beds, spray tans & direct sun exposure for about 2 weeks pre-treatment.

Avoid plucking or waxing the area to be treated for about 3 to 4 weeks before planned treatment.

Shave before treatment so that your skin is smooth when you come into the office. However, if it is an area you can not reach we can shave for you.
