The Safe Approach of Laser Hair Removal

The scientific approach to laser hair removal has advanced significantly since its introduction in the 1960s. Modern laser hair removal procedures use specific wavelengths of light that is attracted to the natural pigment melanin found at the root of each hair follicle. The laser will then heat up and destroy the follicle, which ultimately hinders its ability to produce new hair.

Laser hair removal uses a very minimal amount of non-ionizing radiation that works on just the surface of the skin, experts agree that this does not cause damage to the DNA. In fact, according to the Skin Care Foundation, the procedure is sometimes used to treat certain forms of precancerous lesions.

The most dangerous types of radiation is ionizing radiation, which is produced by gamma rays, Z-rays, and even UV rays. These dangerous forms of radiation can be found in tanning beds, X-rays at the hospital, and even just soaking up the UV rays on a sunny day. Fortunately, laser hair removal does not emit any harmful ionizing radiation, therefore not posing any risk of cancer.

LivSmooth’s Laser Technology

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 hand piece to achieve 100% energy absorption into the follicle.

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