What is Laser Hair Removal?

Our painless laser hair removal in Charlotte, NC is a fast and virtually painless procedure that destroys hair follicles at their roots, preventing them from continuing to grow hair. This means your skin is smooth, soft, and ready to go for the long term. At the Beck Aesthetic Surgery medspa, we utilize the Motus AY, a cutting-edge proprietary laser device and the new laser of choice for hair removal.

How Laser Hair Removal Works

Laser hair removal utilizes a scientifically designed laser to target and heat the hair follicles in the skin, which renders them unable to produce hair. Laser hair removal can be done anywhere on the body, targeting:

  • Leg hair
  • Facial hair
  • Back hair
  • Arm hair
  • Underarm hair
  • Upper lip hair
  • Neck and beard hair
  • The bikini area
  • Hair on the fingers and toes

Benefits of the Motus AY

  • Treatments are virtually pain-free
  • Fewer and shorter treatment sessions are required
  • Great for all skin types and ethnicities
  • Reduces 50-90% of hair
  • Achieves faster results

The Motus AY: The Best in Laser Hair Removal

Manufactured by Europe’s top aesthetic laser manufacturer, the Motus AY overcomes limitations that previous lasers had that prevented the quick, successful removal of fine or light hair. Using Moveo technology and a handpiece that delivers faster, more efficient energy, the Motus AY makes it possible even for patients with darker skin to benefit from laser hair removal virtually painlessly and without side effects.

Your Consultation

Laser hair removal begins with an assessment of your skin type and hair color to determine which type of laser will be most effective and the number of treatments you will need. We generally recommend starting with six treatments, but more may be necessary. 

When laser hair removal first became available, it was only suitable for those with fair skin and dark hair because the laser would only target dark pigment. With today’s advances in science, virtually painless laser hair removal in Charlotte, NC, is effective on a wider range of hair colors. However, laser hair removal is not effective on white, gray, blonde or red hair.

What to Expect During Treatment

The laser hair removal procedure will begin with an application of cooling gel, and we will provide eye protection. The laser is then applied to the treatment area or areas. You may experience a slight stinging or burning sensation as the laser works, but the majority of patients find the treatment very tolerable. The technology reduces any discomfort typically associated with laser hair removal. 

Depending on the size of the area to be treated, your treatment will require a bit more or less time but are not typically lengthy. The number of treatments needed varies from person to person. A typical treatment regimen is six or more sessions, each spaced about a month apart, depending on which area is being treated.

Downtime and Results

Once completed, you can return to your usual activities with no downtime. You’ll start to see a noticeable reduction in the amount of hair in the treated area. The full removal of hair from an area requires a minimum of three treatments because your hair grows in phases, and only hairs in the growth phase are affected. Once an area is fully treated, you can expect hair-free, clean, and smooth skin for years into the future. If further hair develops over time, additional treatments can be performed to maintain hair-free skin.
