This Groupon is valid for the following body areas:

Emerging supreme for the third year in a row, Elements Laser Spa was voted Best Hair Removal in Austin by Citysearchers in 2011 for safely and speedily removing hair from skin of all types. Using state-of-the-art Candela lasers, skilled technicians train a millimeters-thick beam of focused light on unwanted underbrush on the bikini line, underarms, front of neck, or back of neck. Over three treatments, spaced six to eight weeks apart, the modern lasers can yield quicker results and cause less pain than treatments from geriatric lasers or ancient scotch tape. Elements Laser Spa recommends an average of 6–10 treatments to achieve long-lasting smoothness, but with each session, hairs sprout back thinner, finer, and less likely to get stuck on a velcro wall. For an additional $120, clients can receive three treatments on the lower legs, chest, lower back, extended bikini, buttocks, face (chin, upper lip, and sideburns), or a full Brazilian; for an extra $425, clients can get three full-leg or full-back treatments.

You might call Paul Jones, managing partner of Elements Laser Spa, a bit of a technology junkie. He worked in the semiconductors industry for years, making equipment for manufacturers in Silicon Valley before deciding to fly solo. He created a company that used lasers to inspect the surface of semiconductor wafers and the insides of sandwich cookies. Jones then collaborated with a group of orthopedic surgeons and physical therapists to found what has become one of the leading rehabilitation clinics in the Austin area.
It's no surprise, then, that his latest endeavor—two hip, welcoming laser spas—have taken home four Best of CitySearch awards: in the laser-hair-removal category in 2009 and 2010, and in the hair-removal category in 2011 and 2013. Jones has chosen medical directors who match his zeal for innovation, namely plastic surgeon Dr. Vishnu Rumalla and Dr. Mason Jones, an expert in medical aesthetic procedures. The staff of certified technicians uses Venus Freeze to tighten skin and reduce wrinkles, Zerona lasers to noninvasively reduce stubborn fat, and advanced Candela systems to remove hair, spider veins, and sun spots.
