How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?

Before you decide on one of our fast and painless LivSmooth treatments, you may ask yourself “how does laser hair removal work?” We use cutting edge Motus lasers at LivSmooth, the first high-speed Alexandrite lasers. These state of the art laser treatment systems provide fast, painless, and more effective treatment than ever before. Our lasers use optimized wavelength technology and a special handpiece to achieve 100% energy absorption into the follicle.

The technological breakthrough behind the Motus AX is the proprietary Moveo technology. This technology was developed to overcome the limitations of traditional Alexandrite 755nm for hair removal while retaining all of its advantages.

Moveo technology (moveo is Italian for move) uses simple, even movements over  a small area gradually heating the vital parts of the hair delivering enough heat to destroy the hair follicle without damaging the surrounding skin.   Because of the relative thermal relaxation time of the skin and the cooled sapphire tip, treatments are safe and completely comfortable for the patient.

Benefits of the Motus Laser

Laser Technology


I started with my armpits and bikini line – the areas of my body that are most likely to revolt after shaving. The whole thing took 15 minutes, and guys, I’m not even kidding, it didn’t hurt at all. There was a slight pinching sensation at some points, but for the most part, it just felt like someone was gliding a cold metal spoon over my skin.


Thankfully, today’s lasers are more customizable and less dependent on using contrast alone, making them more inclusive. “In the last several years, we’ve had lasers that are safe for dark skin, but the limit has been efficiacy,” says New York dermatologist Paul Jarrod Frank, MD. He lauds the new Motus AX hair removal laser as the most effective device for a wide range of skin tones – and its virtually painless. The difference is the blue glass tip at the end of the laser’s wand. It’s cool to the touch and delivers energy by slowly heating up the skin rather than blasting it all at once.

Doctor Reviews of the Motus Laser

“The Motus AX has been a game changer for us. Patients can tell it is a truly cutting-edge device that is so different from all the older laser hair removal devices out there. They are shocked that we can provide this therapy without ANY discomfort. This assures our patients that we are offering the most advanced technologies to meet their needs.”

– Arash Akhavan, MD. Dermatologist

“Motus has changed the way that we think of hair removal in our practice. I am much more comfortable with it now knowing that #1 it is safe and that #2 its effective. We talk about painless changing the paradigm of the patient experience which is entirely true for the Motus AX, but as a physician responsible for the safety of my patients and the actions of my extenders, I want to make sure that they are safely treating our patients. Having a device that can be used across all skin types with simple setting modifications is a game changer.”

– Thomas Griffin Jr., MD. Dermatologist

Laser Hair Removal
Frequently Asked Questions

How Does it work?

The laser targets and destroys hair follicles below the skin’s surface, but new follicles can develop due to lifestyle changes such as diet, exercise, and other factors

What Are the Risks?

The biggest risk with lasers is eye damage. Both you and the person operating the laser should be wearing goggles specific to the type of laser that’s being used. Skin damage such as blistering, redness, or irritation is uncommon with modern laser technology.

Does It Hurt?

With our new Motus lasers, the pain previously associated with Laser Hair Removal is a thing of the past. Many customers even note that the process “tickles” a little bit.

Will It Work on My Skin Type and Hair Color?

Laser hair removal works on almost every skin type-from very light-skinned people (or what’s known as Type I on the Fitzpatrick scale, a skin-typing test) all the way up to Type V or even VI (which is dark skin).

How Long Does It Take?

The actual procedure time depends on the area being treated. Each hair follicle is zapped in a millisecond, so a small area (such as the armpits) will take less than five minutes to complete, while a larger area (such as the legs) might take a half hour.
