Motus Laser VS. Traditional Hair Removal Methods

by Aymee Wilson, Owner & Founder, Wilson Aesthetics

Unwanted hair growth can influence self-confidence and affect wardrobe choices, leading many to explore various hair removal methods.

Among the modern solutions, laser hair removal has gained significant popularity due to its effectiveness and lasting results. Specifically, Motus AX & AY lasers have emerged as powerful contenders, bringing innovation and efficiency.

This technology allows even individuals with darker skin to enjoy the benefits of laser hair removal.

The three primary differences from other laser hair removal systems are:

  1. Total convenience: It eliminates the need for compromise by being compatible with various skin types.
  2. Treatment speed, effectiveness: With its high-speed capabilities and efficient energy delivery, this technique offers quick and effective treatments, reducing the time commitment for clients.
  3. Compatibility with all skin types: One of the most significant challenges in laser hair removal has been the procedure’s suitability for various skin tones. Motus AX addresses this challenge.

The Moveo technology that powers the Motus AZ+ platform ensures that patients experience treatments without discomfort — a contrast to the often-painful experience associated with traditional hair removal methods.

Is A Motus AX treatment right for me?


Skin type, tone

Unlike traditional laser systems, which might be less effective on darker skin due to higher melanin levels, Motus AX utilizes Moveo technology to deliver energy without adverse effects safely.

Hair color

While this treatment is effective for a broad spectrum of skin tones, it’s most efficient for individuals with darker hair. The pigment in the hair follicle absorbs the laser’s energy, making darker hair more responsive to the treatment.

Treatment area

Can be used on various body parts, including the face, arms, legs, back and bikini area. The technology’s adjustable settings can cater to your needs.

Long-term commitment

Laser hair removal, including the Motus AX treatment, offers long-lasting results. However, it’s important to note that multiple sessions are usually required for optimal outcomes. Most individuals need treatments a few weeks apart to catch hairs in different growth cycles.

Pain tolerance

Motus AX could provide a much more comfortable option if you’ve been hesitant about laser hair removal due to discomfort associated with traditional methods.

A general guideline for a typical laser hair removal regimen is around six to eight sessions, usually spaced four to eight weeks apart.
