Hair is like detailed knowledge of X-Files plotlines—while extremely useful, revealing too much of it in the wrong place can sink your social life. Today's Groupon abducts rogue hairs with technology invented by a shadowy group of elites known only as the Syndicate with hair removal services at Alite Laser Hair Removal & Skin Rejuvenation, at either of its two locations in Austin and Round Rock. Choose between the following options:
- For $33, you get $65 worth of waxing services.
- For $149, you get three laser hair removal treatments (up to a $600 value).
Alite Laser specializes in laser-light hair removal, employing a cool laser’s long-pulse, high-energy beams to safely minimize unwanted stubble by directly targeting the follicles. Women can defuzz an anatomy book's worth of body areas, including the underarms (a $100+ value per treatment), the bikini area (a $160 value per treatment), or the abdomen line (an $80+ value per treatment). Smooth, dolphin-like hairlessness extends to the gentlemen as well, with treatments covering cactus-like prickles on dermal deserts including the nape of the neck (a $120 value per treatment), chest (a $200 value per treatment), lower back (a $120 value per treatment), and stomach (a $175+ value per treatment). All seekers of smoothness should visit the pricing section of Alite's website for a full list of applicable areas. Alite offers two forms of laser hair removal, designed for lighter and darker skin types.
For this offer, each visit must be used to treat the same area. Current clients may use this Groupon for a body area not already undergoing treatment at the clinic. Customers may buy two Groupons to get six treatments for the same area—the recommended number of treatments for best results. Additionally, Groupon holders can get 50% off treatments for a second area treated the same day.
More traditional banishers of bristle can opt for Alite's waxing services. Skilled trimmers use both strip and hard wax on varying body parts to render guests’ skin as sleek as a freshly shaved bowling pin. Choose from an extensive menu of body terrain, uprooting fur trees from the brows ($20), full legs ($60/women, $90/men), half legs ($40+), and more. See the site’s menu for a full list of valid areas and pricing, and call ahead to schedule your own de-fuzzifying foray.
Customers may upgrade to Brazilian for an additional $35 at the time of treatment, a full back package for an additional $100 at time of each treatment, and a half leg for an additional $75 at time of each treatment.
Alite Laser Hair Removal & Skin Rejuvenation was a 2006 Critic's Pick for Best Laser Hair-Removal Specialists in the Austin Chronicle. Citysearchers give Alite's Austin location a five-star average, along with the distinctions of Best Austin Hair Removal of 2010.
Alite Laser’s three locations act as upscale sanctuaries where clients can go to lose spider veins and unwanted fat, but their specialty is hair removal. A trio of hair-removal procedures—waxing, laser removal, and electrolysis—fight follicles more effectively than scaring hair away like it’s a case of the hiccups. When they aren’t performing laser hair-removal procedures, technicians harness the power of light to brighten skin during facials.
