What is laser hair removal?
Laser hair removal is a non-invasive technique that uses highly concentrated light to penetrate hair follicles and inhibit future hair growth. Treatment is effective for most parts of the body.

Will my treatment hurt?
One of the major benefits of the Motus AY, is that the Moveo technology eliminates the discomfort that typical laser hair systems cause. Most people only feel a mild warming sensation making the experience a highly comfortable one.
How many sessions will I need?
The number of sessions required to eliminate hair completely depends on the individual and the area being treated. A typical laser hair removal regimen is 6 – 8 sessions spaced 4 to 10 weeks apart and then maintenance treatments as needed. Throughout your course of treatment, the hair will slow in growth, change in color and texture, then followed by reduction. Given the efficacy of the Motus AY, you may need fewer session and could go longer before needing a touch-up treatment.
How do I prepare for my painless laser hair removal treatment?
Prior to your initial treatment you will have a consultation to ensure you are a candidate for laser hair removal. A few reminders to ensure you have a safe and effective treatment include:
  • Discontinuing photosensitizing oral medications and topical medications in the area to be treated 1 week prior to your session.
  • Avoid sun exposure, tanning beds, and sunless tanner in the area being treated for 2 weeks prior to your session. Presenting with an active tan or having sunless tanner on the area will result in rescheduling of your treatment.
  • Shave the area to be treated the night before or the day of your session. The cleaner and the closer the shave the better results you will have.
What should I expect after the treatment?
Due to the Moveo technology that the Motus AY Laser offers most patients do not experience side effects like they would with traditional lasers. Your provider will provide you with more information on what to expect as well as give you and aftercare plan to follow that will involve avoiding direct sun exposure and using sunscreen.
