Frequently asked questions
Is a Motus AY treatment right for me?
One of the breakthrough benefits of the Motus AY is that it is safe and effective for light to dark skin types. Whether you have fine hair or a darker skin tone, the Motus AY can be used to target and permanently remove unwanted hair. The Motus AY 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 AY different from other lasers for hair removal?
The three main differences between the Motus AY 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 AY 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 AY, 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 AY is relatively fast and able to complete a large area in under an hour.
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, and sometimes even 8-9 sessions, spaced one month apart and then maintenance treatments as needed. Given the efficacy of the Motus AY, you may need only 4 sessions and could go longer before needing a touch-up treatment.
My doctor recommended the Motus AY but not for hair removal .
While hair removal with the Motus AY is most common, the combined laser technology of the Alexandrite and Nd:YAG effectively treat benign pigmented lesions, vascular lesions, and small leg veins. The built-in Moveo technology ensures100% energy transmission to reduce lesions in any skin type without discomfort and side-effects. The Nd:YAG penetrates deeper into the skin to be effective in vascular treatment (both face and legs), as well as small leg veins.
