Laser Hair Removal Q & A
What is the Cartessa™ Deka Motus AX laser?
The Deka Motus AX is a high-speed hair removal laser that works on all skin tones, including darker skin that's normally hard to treat. The Motus AX laser handpiece has a cooling sapphire tip and treatment is virtually pain-free.
Your Hamptons Medical Associates provider moves the handpiece over small areas quickly, making repeated passes to heat and destroy the hair follicle gradually while still keeping the upper layers of skin undamaged.
What is the Cynosure Vectus® laser?
The Vectus laser is a powerful laser technology that treats large areas like the chest, back, and legs quickly. The Vectus laser treats any skin and hair color, and your Hamptons Medical Associates provider can customize treatment using the Skintel® Melanin Reader™ based on your skin tone.
The Advanced Contact Cooling™ system keeps you comfortable while the laser heats your hair follicles to destroy them.
Which type of laser hair removal treatment is right for me?
It depends on the size of the treatment area, your preferences, and your Hamptons Medical Associates provider's recommendation. In general, the Moxus AX laser may be best for smaller areas while the Vectus is best for larger ones. Your provider may use both lasers if you're having a couple of different areas treated.
When will I see results after laser hair removal?
You'll notice gradual hair shedding in the treated areas in the weeks after treatment. The shedding can continue until it's time for your next laser hair removal session, generally 6-10 weeks after the first one.
How many laser hair removal treatments do I need?
It can vary by patient, but most patients get great results with a series of 3-6 treatments. It all depends on what type of results you're looking for, so your Hamptons Medical Associates provider will discuss a treatment plan with you before you begin.
What should I do to prepare for laser hair removal?
Your Hamptons Medical Associates provider recommends specific preparation measures ahead of your first session. Typical guidelines include:
- Stay out of the sun (and tanning beds) for at least a couple of weeks
- Use only shaving as a hair removal method
- Don't apply lotion, perfume, or anything else on the day of your appointment
- Wear loose-fitting clothes to your appointment
The same preparation rules apply to your future hair removal sessions, too.
