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 MaxPro, 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. They also have a built-in cooling system that will help minimize any discomfort from the laser.

Our team consists of Austin’s laser hair removal experts, each with 5-20 years of experience in the field. 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?

It is not permanent. The 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 the treatment procedures are advertised as a type of “permanent” hair removal treatment, they 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 hair 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.

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 service. 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 It Worth It?

The 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, arms, etc. The fast process only takes about 1 second per pulse, which means you’ll be getting in and out quickly with minimal discomfort!

Frequently Asked Questions

You do not have to have hair on the 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.

When it comes to the level of pain, the 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 is 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.

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

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

After your laser 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.

Hair below the neck typically regrows after 6 to 8 weeks, so scheduling your next appointment helps achieve optimal long-term results with finer and reduced hair. For facial hair, the growth cycle is shorter, around 4 to 6 weeks.

While results can vary from person to person and body area to body area, industry standards are anywhere between 6 to 10 consistent treatments, and 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 treatment 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 and certain antibiotics, as well as topicals like retinol & retinA.

Avoid tanning beds, spray tans, and direct sun exposure for about 2 weeks pre-laser hair removal session.

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.
