Laser hair removal has been around for many years, however pain and skin type restrictions have made effective and safe hair removal difficult. Dr. Griffin and his aesthetic team at Dermatology Associates of Plymouth Meeting, are proud to offer a REVOLUTION in laser hair removal – Motus AX. The most cutting-edge hair removal laser on the market, Motus AX is painless and safe for all skin types.


About Motus AX

If you think about hair removal, you probably think about pain. Plucking, waxing and frequent shaving are all unpleasant experiences, yet a necessity for most people. Even more painful than these temporary hair removal methods are traditional hair removal laser treatments that have been around for years. Despite the intense pain associated with this procedure, people have still been attracted to laser hair removal treatments and the prospect of never having to shave or wax again.

Thanks to new laser hair removal technology called Motus AX, hair can be permanently removed—painlessly. Motus AX is a new Alexandrite laser that is innovative in more ways than one. It allows for painless laser hair removal, which is a monumental breakthrough, but it also safely works for people with darker skin tones. Unlike like traditional laser hair removal treatments that only worked for people with light skin and dark colored hair, Motus AX is effective for all skin types at any time of year.

The Motus AX laser is different because it features a handpiece equipped with a Cooling Sapphire Cylinder Tip. This allows beams of energy to be delivered faster and more efficiently into the skin.

This breakthrough technology provides patients with three major benefits:

  1. Comfort throughout the treatment (at most, you’ll feel a slight warming sensation during your session)
  2. Speed (in most cases, even larger areas can be treated in less than five minutes)
  3. High-efficacy rate for all skin types

What Results Should I Expect?

Most patients require six sessions spaced four to six weeks apart to completely remove the hair in a particular area. This is because, at any given time only one out of six hairs in the growth phase, and only hairs in the growth phase can absorb laser energy down to the root in order to be permanently eliminated. Ultimately, the Motus AX laser will permanently remove 90 to 95 percent of hair in a treated area.

After your Motus AX treatment (which usually only takes five to ten minutes, depending on the size of your treatment area), you will experience zero downtime. The treated hair will fall out within a few weeks and will not grow back. You’re free to resume daily activities without restriction, but you’ll want to make sure to wear sunscreen if your treatment area is exposed to sunlight and use a washcloth or exfoliating tool once a week to gently exfoliate the treated area to decrease chances for ingrown hairs.

Say Goodbye to Shaving and Waxing Forever

Now, it’s possible to undergo laser hair removal treatments without the trade-off of severe pain, side effects or lengthy recoveries. Even if you have a darker complexion, fine hair or sensitive skin, Motus AX is effective on all skin types. Thanks to its contact cooling technology and advanced high-speed energy, it cuts treatment times in half while delivering double the power without any discomfort.
