A new phase has come to laser hair removal! The process is virtually painless, works faster, and performs well on different skin types. Candidates for the Cartessa Motus AY technology will experience fewer and more comfortable treatments. Senara Health and Healing Center & Spa offers this leading-edge technology to clients of our medical spa in Peoria.

Traditionally, laser hair removal doesn’t work well on darker skin pigments, and the ones that do, don’t work as well as other, more painful options. That’s where the Motus AY comes into play. This laser hair removal system utilizes Moveo technology, consisting of a handpiece that allows a fast and efficient way to destroy hair at the root with no side effects and across all pigment types.

Treatment times vary depending on the size of the area treated. However, the Motus AY can remove large swathes of hair in about 5 minutes. So, your underarms will take a much shorter treatment time than your legs or back. But, the time per treatment with the Moveo handpiece is much shorter than with other technologies.

How Many Treatments Will I Need?

Each person has different needs. People with finer, lighter hair generally take fewer treatments than someone with coarse, thick hair. The recommendation for most treatments is 6 to 8+ sessions. These sessions should occur every 4 to 6 weeks, with touch ups after the initial treatment sequence happening every 3 to 6 months afterward.

When Will I See Results?

You will start to see results after your first treatment. Each treatment removes more hair, and by the final session, you should see very little to no hair. However, hair grows in cycles, and touch ups will catch the remaining hairs that are resilient or missed during the last growth cycle. No more what your hair growth cycle is, you will see permanent hair reduction in the treated area!


While the Motus AY laser hair removal technology works better than any other, it is still a cosmetic procedure. You should make sure you are a good candidate for laser hair removal before having it done. Everything from medications to sun exposure can affect treatment. Senara can help you determine if this therapy is right for you. Contact our medical spa to learn more and schedule your initial consultation today.
