Continue reading to learn more about Motus AX, a high-speed laser that can quickly, painlessly, and effectively perform hair removal in the widest range of skin types as well as treat pigmented lesions.
What is Motus AX laser?
Motus AX is a cutting-edge laser made by DEKA, a leading aesthetic laser manufacturer in Europe. It is the first high-speed Alexandrite laser that can be used on both light and dark skin tones. Laser hair removal with the Motus AX is fast and painless and can be done a range of skin types. The platform can also be used for treating pigmented lesions.
How does it work?
The power laser beam generated by Motus AX seeks out the dark pigment in hair follicles. The follicles absorb the heat and are destroyed by it. AX Motus is an Alexandrite laser, which historically has been the most effective laser for fine, light hair and can deliver results more rapidly than other types of lasers.
Yet, Alexandrite lasers are not usually suitable for medium or dark skin tones, in which they can cause pigmentation or burns.
However, Motus AX is is safe for all skin tones, including type VI Fitzpatrick (deeply pigmented) skin and delicate areas like the bikini area. This makes Motus AX a popular choice with providers because they no longer have to settle for less effective laser hair removal options.
What the pros and cons of Motus AX?
The pros include a more comfortable treatment compared to other types of laser hair removal devices (there's no rubber band snapping sensation with the AX Motus). Also, it can be safely used on all skin types including very dark skin. Motus AX is more powerful than Nd:YAG lasers, so you need fewer sessions to get the desired results. Also, the short pulse duration targets all hair types, including fine, light hair (which is a challenge with conventional hair removal lasers). The platform is also suitable to treat benign pigmented lesions.
The only cons are that the treatments are relatively new compared to other lasers, so effectiveness and costs are not well studied. Also, the treatment area can be a little red afterwards, although this usually resolves in a day or two.
Frequently Asked Questions
Who is a good candidate for Motus AX?
People with any skin type, skin color, hair texture, and hair color can undergo Motus AX treatments.
How long does the treatment take?
The treatments are quick. Smaller areas can be completed in under 5 minutes. Larger areas may take 10-15 minutes.
Is AX Motus treatment painful?
There is no discomfort or pain with Motus AX treatments. The system employs a gentle constant energy rather than bursts of laser energy, making the procedure entirely comfortable.
How many treatments will I need?
Hair grows in cycles. This means there are multiple treatments needed to get rid of all the unwanted hair. Patients may require 3, 6, 9, or 12 treatment sessions to achieve reduction in hair growth - this can vary individually. In general, patients require fewer sessions of AX Motus compared to traditional laser hair removal methods and can wait longer before needing a maintenance or touch-up treatment.
How far apart are treatments spaced?
You will need to wait 4-8 weeks between AX Motus sessions. This will vary depending on the length of your hair growth cycle, which can vary based on the area being treated.
Is there any downtime after Motus AX?
No. You can return to routine activities, including work, right away. You will be advised to avoid swimming, sauna use, and sweaty workouts for one day.
Are there any side effects of this treatment?
The area can be mildly red, tender, and sensitive to heat, but this usually resolves in a few hours. Your hair will shed over the next few days. Sometimes, the follicles can become inflamed temporarily, but this will subside on its own. You should avoid picking on the follicles and follow normal hygiene measures.
What results will I get from Motus AX?
You will see a gradual decrease in the density, thickness, and number of hair in the treated area. You will notice complete elimination of hair after multiple sessions.
When will I see results?
The results are usually noticeable within a week after Motus AX treatment. With each session, roughly 10 to 15% of the follicles are destroyed. You will therefore see visible reduction in hair with each successive session. Results can vary from person to person. People with faster hair growth cycles will see more new follicles more frequently.
Are the results permanent?
Laser hair removal treatments with Motus AX are long-lasting but not permanent. Some patients do not need to do anything for years, maybe never. Most patients, however, require maintenance treatments 2-3 times every year to keep the area hair-free. Essentially, the laser treatment does not remove the hair permanently but it does permanently reduce the number of hair in the treated area. If you want permanent results, any stray hairs can be treated with electrolysis after Motus AX.
What is the most effective laser hair removal machine?
Motus AX tops the charts in effective hair removal technologies for various reasons, including painfree hair removal and treating darker skin types. Some of the key advantages of Motus AX are described below:
The Deka Motus AX is the first high speed Alexandrite laser that features a FDA approved proprietary Moveo technology that overcomes the limitations of conventional Alexandrite 755 nm lasers. The Moveo technology allows uniform movements of the laser handpiece over small areas to gradually generate enough heat to destroy vital parts of the hair. This helps to deliver heat to the hair follicle with minimal damage to surrounding skin. The low-energy pulses and Moveo technology means laser energy is completely absorbed by the skin with double the energy transfer compared to traditional laser devices, making it highly effective. Additionally, the sapphire tip of the Motus AX laser cools the skin on contact and makes treatments safe and comfortable for patients.
The Motus AX hair removal laser permits 100% energy absorption, unlike infrared and visible wavelengths that are reflected by the skin to a large degree. The efficient energy transfer makes the Motus platforms superior to many other laser hair removal devices and laser pigmentation treatments.
Fast and painfree hair removal
The in-motion technology and large spot size of the Moveo handpiece make treatments quick. The gradual heating eliminates discomfort (frequently described as a rubber band snapping sensation) that is common with most laser hair removal devices. The integrated contact cooling also adds to patient comfort.
Hair removal in both dark and light skin types
What makes the Motus AX revolutionary is its ability to treat patients with light AND dark skin tones. Practitioners do not need to use the less effective or poorly tolerated YAG and diode lasers in patients with dark skin anymore. All patients can undergo pain-free laser hair removal in fewer sessions with Motus AX.
Is Motus AX treatment safe?
Motus AX can be safely used for hair removal in all skin types. It is gentle on adjacent skin. The risk of pigmentation, although not zero, is lower than other types of lasers. When performed by an experienced provider, severe complications are extremely rare.
How much does Motus AX laser hair removal cost?
When considering the cost of Motus AX treatments, keep in mind that you will save a considerable amount of money on other hair removal methods after your treatments. A single Motus AX session typically starts at $100 for a small area like the chin or upper lip and can be around $400 for the whole arms, $500 for the whole legs or whole back, and $750 for a head to toe treatment. Your provider may offer an annual package price. Also, maintenance treatments are typically priced lower than the original sessions.
What is the best laser for laser hair removal?
Motus AX is highly effective and can provide amazing results, giving you silky smooth, hair-free skin with a comfortable office treatment, no downtime, and quick sessions.
Finding a provider for laser hair removal treatments
Other lasers target the pigment in a hair follicle, which makes them effective against dark, coarse hair on light colored skin. Also, the treatments can be painful and may cause pigmentation in darker skin tones.
Motus AX overcomes these limitations and allows for quick hair removal safely and painlessly in all skin types, including dark skin types, making it the universal choice of many providers.
