Have you tried traditional laser hair removal but stopped because the process was too painful? Wouldn’t it be amazing to know that you could wear anything you wanted without being embarrassed about unwanted hair?

Skin Science Soul by Dr. Sholar is the first practice in Austin, TX to offer the next-level Motus AX- a completely painless but powerful, award-winning laser hair removal technology. This truly painless treatment is safe on all skin types and can be used to treat all hair colors and thicknesses.

The one thing everyone talks about with laser hair removal is the pain. When I'd tell friends and patients that they should consider it because of the immense convenience of no longer having to shave, they'd scold me with anecdotes like, "It’s way worse than a Brazilian wax" or "That’s torture! I’d rather have threading, and that’s pulling out hairs one-by-one" but, they always agreed with me that it was well worth it. Indeed, never having to shave, or wax, or thread again- not to mention paying for all of that- is very worthy of enduring discomfort.

Enter the Motus AX, a tech-superior Alexandrite laser, which works equally well for all skin tones AND is truly totally painless. That’s due to the Motus’ patented Moveo technology governing how the hair follicle absorbs the laser energy. Now, if you know me, I am always a skeptic when it comes to marketing claims, so I did the research first and then tried it out for myself before I invested in purchasing the laser for my aesthetics practice. I’ve had laser hair removal before, so I braced myself for the usual. But, as soon as we got started, I was quite surprised that I only felt a cool sensation comfortably moving up and down my leg. It was also really fast. I was convinced. In fact, my expectations were exceeded.

By gradually heating the area up, this delivery system minimizes damage to the skin around the follicles. The Moveo handpiece can also get extremely close to the skin’s surface. Unlike other lasers which lose a portion of their energy when it reflects off the skin, the Motus AX’s energy is entirely absorbed by the skin, making it effective enough to remove up to 90% of unwanted hair in as few as four treatments, compared to eight to twelve with most laser hair removal treatment options.

Because this is a precise, painless procedure that is non-invasive, there is no recovery time. You can have your hair removed and then continue your daily activities. Even better, with Motus AX, we can treat almost anyone! We can treat those with light skin, those with dark skin, and those in between. We can treat thick or thin hair. We can treat the face, arms, underarms, bikini line, legs, chest, and back.

With each treatment, the improvement in your skin should become more and more noticeable. You should be aware that it may take several sessions for you to achieve the best possible results. To maximize your results, we recommend that you come in to see us for at least four treatments, four to six weeks apart. No consultation is needed for this treatment, but we can discuss the right number of treatments you should opt for to achieve the results you are hoping for based on your specific skin issues.

The Final Verdict: Motus AX is nothing short of a Laser Hair Removal Miracle!
