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 pain-free 
  • Fewer and shorter treatment sessions are required
  • Great for all skin types and skin tones 
  • Treats both vascular and pigmented lesions
  • 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 painlessly and without side effects. Better still, the Motus AY is effective not only for laser hair removal, but also for treating pigmented lesions in any skin type, small legs veins (spider veins), and vascular lesions of the face, legs, and body.

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. 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, painless laser hair removal in Charlotte, NC is available for virtually any skin type and hair color. Together we will decide which laser is right for you.

What to Expect During Treatment

The laser hair removal procedure will begin with an application of cooling gel, followed by the laser application itself. The procedure can take up to an hour depending on the number of areas to be treated. 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. 

Treatments are fast. Even a large area can be treated in under five minutes. Depending on the size of the area to be treated, you’ll require a bit more or less time.

The number of treatments needed varies from person to person. A typical treatment regimen is three to six sessions, each spaced about a month apart. With the effectiveness of the Motus AY, however, you’ll likely need less treatment sessions than you would with other laser options — and you’ll be able to go hair-free even longer before requiring a touch-up or maintenance treatment.

Before & After

Downtime and Results

Once completed, you can return to your usual activities, with no downtime or recovery. You’ll start to see hair shedding over the following days, as well as 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.
