Long Term Hair Removal Treatment For Both Men & Women
The Motus AY is the most advanced treatment for long term hair removal. This new machine is the latest arrival at the Shape U Clinic and offers long term hair removal treatments in as little as 10 minutes to an hour depending on the size of the treatment area.
Where can it be used?
The Motus AY Laser hair removal machine uses laser technology (concentrated beams of light) to remove unwanted hair from the face and the body.
How does it work?
An applicator is placed on the skin and a short pulse of light is released, this laser light energy heats the pigment and effectively destroys the hair follicles without damaging surrounding cells. The laser targets many hair follicles simultaneously. The applicator is then moved to the neighbouring area of skin and the process is repeated until the entire area is treated. The treatment delays hair growth
Am I suitable for treatment?
Most people are suitable for treatment. Laser hair removal is most effective for people who have light skin and dark hair, but it can be successfully used on all skin types. Please book a consultation for further information and to find out suitability for treatment.
How long are the treatments?
Treatments take as little as 10 minutes to an hour depending on the size of the treatment area. Multiple treatments will be needed as only hair that is actively growing is affected. Treatment is conducted every 4 to 8 weeks depending on the area tested until a satisfactory result is seen. The required number of treatments varies.
The Motus is the most advanced skin removal and skin rejuvenation treatments used in the NHS and aesthetic clinics across the globe, also used for the removal of pigmentation, leg and facial spider veins, fungal nail warts and veruccas.

How does Laser compare to other hair removal treatments?
Electrolysis for permanent hair removal
Electrolysis hair removal needs eight to twelve sessions to permanently remove hair. It uses a very fine needle inserted into the pore of the skin and then an uses shortwave radio frequencies in the hair follicles. It can be very painful and need a very highly skilled dermatologist. Laser Removal needs 6 session and is pain free.
Waxing can be used on any skin type. A soft or hard wax can be used with a cloth or paper strips that pull the wax and hair off the skin. It can be very painful and can cause irritation, ingrown hairs, redness, rashes, bumps, sun sensitivity, and scarring. It can be difficult to do yourself due to the pain and needing to pull the wax strip the right way. Laser hair removal is totally pain free and leaves skin smooth, without irritation. It does cause sun sensitivity and it is recommended that treatment periods are during Winter months to avoid the sun.
Many hand held epilator devices can be used wet or dry, some users say it is easier to do in shower or bath as the hot water may help open the pores and prevent goosebump skin. It can take some getting used to as the mechanical pluckers pull the hairs out as they roll around and this can be very painful. If you have a lot of hair it can take a lot of time. It is best to epilate regularly for best results, to try to maintain smooth skin. Once a course of laser hair removal is complete (6 pain free sessions) there is no need for further hair removal.
Thermicon No! No!
No! No! is a handheld device which slides across your skin. The Thermicon technology claims to inhibit future growth It can be very expensive as there are different verions and there is the smell of burning hair. The reviews on Boots website are very mixed about this device. The reviews for Laser Hair Removal are excellent.
Shaving with a razor
Shaving is the quick solution for hair removal but the regrowth can appear thicker and stubblier. It is fair cheap but can cause itching, ingrown hairs, bumps, shaving rash and strawberry legs (blocked pores that look redder and darker, like the skin of a strawberry). Lasering leaves the skin really smooth and does not cause itching, dry skin or ingrowing hairs.
Hair Removal Creams
There are many creams like Veet, Nair and Nads to remove hair quickly but you do need to stick to the instructions carefully. It leaves skin instantly smooth and last longer than shaving as it gets the hair right to the root. Lasering removes hairs at the root and prevents further growth.
Hair Remover Mitts
Mitts like Alida (originally called SilkyMit) are a superfine abrasive mitten to remove unwanted hair by rubbing. It can take a long time to do you have to be careful not to rub the same section for too long, but inexpensive and good at exfoliating too. Laser removal once completed takes no further effort, time or cost!
