illume MD is proud to offer laser hair removal, unlike any other laser treatment available. With our patients’ needs in mind, we conducted extensive research which led us to the Motus AX, distributed by Cartessa Aesthetics and manufactured by Europe’s top aesthetic laser manufacturer, DEKA. Here are the important facts you need to know about our new Motus AX laser:
- Faster Hair Removal
- Fewer Treatments compared to typical laser hair removal
- Treat Light & Dark Skin-types
- More Comfortable Treatments
As many recognize, laser hair removal is one of the most common cosmetic laser procedures. In general, devices for hair removal beam highly concentrated light into hair follicles. Pigment in the follicles absorb the light which then destroys the hair. The most efficacious laser for hair removal (particularly fine and light hair) has historically been the Alexandrite laser. However, limitations when treating darker skin types kept it from being the universal choice for providers and many patients have had to settle for less efficacious laser hair removal options. Until now, the Motus AX is the first, high-speed Alexandrite laser that makes it possible for even darker skin types to benefit from the effectiveness of this laser type. This breakthrough is possible because of Moveo technology — a handpiece that delivers fast, more efficient energy to destroy the hair in a way that is painless and free from side-effects.
Frequently Asked Questions
IS A MOTUS AX TREATMENT RIGHT FOR ME?
One of the breakthrough benefits of the Motus AX is that it is safe and effective for light to dark skin types. Whether you have fine, light hair or a darker skin tone, the Motus AX can be used to target and permanently remove unwanted hair. The Motus AX may also be used with tanned skin however, it is always recommended that you talk with your physician about your specific skin conditions before treatment. What makes Motus AX different from other lasers for hair removal?
WHAT MAKES MOTUS AX DIFFERENT FROM OTHER LASERS FOR HAIR REMOVAL?
The three main differences between the Motus AX and other technologies for laser hair removal are:1) Total comfort 2) Speed and effectiveness of the treatment and 3) Use across skin-types. The Motus AX eliminates the trade-offs that come with other laser hair removal options. For instance, an Nd:YAG laser can be used across skin types but is less effective. Other technologies are highly effective but treatments are difficult to tolerate.
WILL MY TREATMENT HURT?
One of the major benefits of the Motus AX, is that the Moveo technology eliminates the discomfort of typical laser hair removal. Most people only feel a warming sensation making the experience a highly comfortable one.
HOW LONG WILL MY TREATMENT TAKE?
Treatment length will vary depending on the area being treated. The Motus AX is relatively fast and able to complete a large area in under 5 minutes.
HOW MANY SESSIONS WILL I NEED?
The number of sessions required to eliminate hair completely depends on the individual. A typical laser hair removal regimen is 5-6 sessions spaced one month apart and then maintenance treatments as needed. Given the efficacy of the Motus AX, you may need fewer sessions and could go longer before needing a touch-up treatment.
