Laser Hair Removal is Now Available

Remove Unwanted Hair from Anywhere on the Face and Body

Luminous Skin Atlanta 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.


  • PIGMENTED LESIONS (dark spots/ acne scars)





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 your Licensed Laser Practitioner 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: Pain Free, Works for Everyone, Fewer Treatments are needed.

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 and 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.

Will my 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 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.

My Licensed Laser Practitioner recommended the Motus AY but not for hair removal .

While hair removal with the Motus AY is most common, the combined laser technology of the Alexandrite and Nd:YAG effectively treat benign pigmented lesions, vascular lesions (acne and rosacea), and small leg veins. The built-in Moveo technology ensures100% energy transmission to reduce lesions in any skin type without discomfort and side-effects. The Nd:YAG penetrates deeper into the skin to be effective in vascular treatment(both face and legs), as well as small leg veins.

Will I stop developing ingrown hair bumps and razor bumps?

Reduction of hair growth will lead to a reduction in ingrown hairs. This is noticeable usually after the 1st treatment and will continue to improve with each treatment.

How can I prepare for my laser treatments?

Shave the area to be treated 1-3 days BEFORE your appointment.
Do NOT wax. If you wax you must wait 3 weeks before coming in for your laser appointment.
Do NOT tan in before your appointment. Your skin needs to be as close to you baseline color as possible.
Patients will need to be sure the area to be treated is clean and free of makeup, sweat, or oil.

Is there any downtime?

There is zero downtime with laser hair removal. Patients are able to resume normal activities directly following their appointment. but patients must remain out of direct sunlight and extreme heat for 48 hours.
