Laser Hair Removal
WHAT IS LASER HAIR REMOVAL?
Motus by DEKA Alexandrite laser is the fastest and most effective of all laser types. Our Motus is the only painless laser in Illinois. The Motus by DEKA is the first high-speed Alexandrite laser for light and dark skin types. Motus by DEKA is a non-invasive treatment to remove unwanted hair on or around areas of your body, laser hair removal leaves your skin looking and feeling smoother and softer. Controlled pulses of light produce heat that is absorbed by the hair pigment and destroys hair follicles. Smaller facial areas like the lips can be treated in minutes. The laser affects only hair follicles in the growth phase so more than one treatment will be necessary. Laser hair removal is FDA-approved with no downtime and minimal pain and discomfort.
During your initial consultation, one of our highly skilled Laser Technicians will discuss the areas of concern and how many treatments you will need per area. Laser treatments at Trouvaille Med Spa are quick and effective so you may go about your regular day afterwards.

FAQs for Laser Hair Removal
WHAT SHOULD I DO TO PREPARE FOR MY FIRST LASER HAIR REMOVAL APPOINTMENT?
4 weeks before – Do not wax, tweeze, bleach, or use hair removal creams or electrolysis on treatment area. These activities can reduce the effectiveness of the treatment. Avoid direct sun exposure. If unavoidable, use minimum SPF 30.
1-2 weeks before – Discontinue tanning (includes bed, self-tanning creams and sprays)
24 hours before – Shave treatment area
Day of treatment – Remove any lotions, make-up and deodorants prior to treatment
Wear loose fitting clothing that will leave the treatment area exposed and easily accessible for treatment. Tight or rough clothing may cause you to feel uncomfortable if the skin becomes sensitive after treatment
You may feel a slight pricking or stinging. Some people compare the feeling to a rubber band snapping onto the skin. We try our best to make the process as tolerable as possible.
AM I A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR LASER HAIR REMOVAL?
Yes, the Motus by DEKA is safe and effective on all skin types and tones.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?
8-10 Treatments are usually required for optimal results. We recommend coming every 4-6 weeks for treatment.
IS LASER HAIR REMOVAL PERMANENT?
Laser hair removal is permanent hair reduction, not permanent hair removal. At Trouvaille Med Spa, it’s not uncommon for patients to require maintenance treatments once a year, even after the area has been fully treated. The reason: The laser targets and destroys your current hair follicles, but new follicles can develop thanks to hormonal changes or shifts in weight.
