White Diamond Medical Clinic and Spa is proud to offer laser hair removal, unlike any other laser treatment available. With our patients’ needs in mind, we conducted extensive research which led us to the Motus AY, distributed by Cartessa Aesthetics and manufactured by Europe’s top aesthetic laser manufacturer, DEKA. Here are the important facts you need to know about our Motus AY laser:

  • Faster Hair Removal
  • Fewer Treatments compared to typical laser hair removal
  • Treat Light & Dark Skin-types
  • More Comfortable Treatments
  • Vascular and Pigment Treatment Options

As many recognize, laser hair removal is one of the most common cosmetic laser procedures. In general, devices for hair removal beam highly concentrated light into hair follicles. Pigment in the follicles absorb the light which then destroys the hair. The most efficacious laser for hair removal (particularly fine and light hair) has historically been the Alexandrite laser. However, limitations when treating darker skin types kept it from being the universal choice for providers and many patients have had to settle for less efficacious laser hair removal options. Until now, the Motus AY is the first, high-speed Alexandrite laser that makes it possible for even darker skin types to benefit from the effectiveness of this laser type. This breakthrough is possible because of Moveo technology — a handpiece that delivers fast, more efficient energy to destroy the hair in a way that is painless and free from side-effects.



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, light 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 Dr. White 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
  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.

What to expect during the Motus AY laser hair removal consultation

During the consultation, you will be asked about your appearance goals and complete medical history. It is important to confirm that you do not have a history of keloid scarring, de-pigmentation (or loss of color in the skin, mucous membrane, hair, or retina), and hives. Patients with these medical conditions may sustain irreversible damage to the skin.

Once it is confirmed that you are eligible for the treatment, we will discuss your treatment plan in detail. The total number of sessions will depend on several factors, including your skin’s reaction to the treatment.

How to prepare for Motus AY laser hair removal

Laser hair removal can make the skin more sensitive due to light energy exposure during the treatment. Patients must avoid plucking, waxing, or bleaching hair for at least a month before the appointment. This will help retain hairs’ roots, which need to be present for the treatment to work.

24 or 48 hours before the appointment, patients can shave the area for treatment.

A week before Motus AY laser hair removal, avoid excessive sun exposure. Wear broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 to maintain healthy skin.

At least 48 hours before the session, avoid drinking alcoholic beverages or coffee.

Will my laser hair removal 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 5 minutes.

How many laser hair removal 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 spaced one month apart and then maintenance treatments, as needed. Given the efficacy of the Motus AY, you may need fewer sessions and could go longer before needing a touch-up treatment.
