DEKA Motus AX Laser Hair Removal System

Laser hair removal has been never been easier with the Motus AX system. This high-speed Alexandrite laser uses a unique wavelength that targets even fine hairs that can be found on the upper lip, arms, or other areas of the body. A specialized tip on the end of the laser device alleviates some of the energy loss that occurs with other systems, allowing Motus AX to be more efficient and effective than some other older laser hair removal systems.

Technology and Devices

Motus AX & AY

The Motus AX & AY are cutting-edge technologies used for effective laser hair removal for all skin types. The devices are manufactured by Europe’s leading laser manufacturer—DEKA. They’ve produced the world’s first high-speed Alexandrite lasers capable of working on both light and dark skin tones with equal effectiveness.

The Motus AX & AY devices use the groundbreaking Moveo technology to gradually heat and destroy targeted hair follicles without damaging the surrounding skin tissues. Unlike other laser systems, the Moveo hand pieces are designed to ensure 100% energy absorption, increasing the total energy available for laser hair removal. As such, the Motus AX & AY devices are far more effective and faster than other laser hair removal systems.

Benefits of Motus AX & AY

  • Destroys targeted hair follicles without harming the surrounding skin
  • The cool sapphire tip ensures a comfortable experience for the patient
  • The Moveo handpiece ensures 100% energy absorption
  • The gradual heating minimizes the “rubber-band” sensation and discomfort traditionally associated with laser hair removal
  • Suitable for light AND dark skin types

Laser Tattoo Removal:

Technology and Devices

Candela Picoway Laser

The PicoWay system produces the shortest pulsed laser currently available marketwide, to reach beneath the skin and remove tattoos, dark spots, wrinkles or acne scars. Comprehensive Laser & Aesthetics is the ONLY practice in Maryland that has this highly effective laser tattoo removal device. As its ultra-short laser pulses produce a photoacoustic effect—where sound waves follow laser light absorption to shatter tattoo ink and leave the outer layer of skin intact—the PicoWay requires zero patient downtime and leaves no scar. PicoWay is FDA cleared for the removal of acne scars, wrinkles, dark skin spots and tattoos.

You will begin to see immediate reduction in tattoo density, and possible full resolution of dark spots and acne scarring following the first treatment, with full resolution possible over the course of several treatments. While most laser tattoo removal systems depend on a photothermal (heating) effect and may thus negatively impact the surface layer of the skin, PicoWay instead produces a photoacoustic effect where sound waves do all of the work without heating or causing any damage to the epidermis.

Who is a good candidate for PicoWay laser?

Anyone seeking to restore refreshed and beautifully rejuvenated skin by quickly removing tattoos, dark skin spots or acne scars with little to no downtime is typically a candidate for PicoWay.

Technology and Devices

Quanta Q-Plus C

The Quanta Q-Plus C is a revolutionary laser device often used for tattoo removal. This unique laser employs a square beam so the treatment can be executed evenly and effectively across the skin. The circular beams associated with older devices required overlapping treatment to cover the entire area, leading to uneven distribution of the laser energy. The Quanta Q-Plus C device also carries three different wavelengths that target different colors of pigment to make one of the most comprehensive tattoo removal devices available today.

Who is a good candidate for Quanta Q-Plus C?

The Quanta Q-Plus C device utilizes three different wavelengths of light, including:

  • 1064 nm for black or dark blue inks
  • 694 nm for other shades of blue, black, purple, and green
  • 532 nm for purple, red, orange, or yellow

The variety of wavelengths means virtually anyone who has an unwanted tattoo can benefit from this innovative device.

Aerolase Neo

Aerolase Neo is the gold standard of versatile laser treatment systems. The 1064 nm wavelength of the laser allows the light energy to penetrate the skin to treat deeper tissue layers as well as surface-level conditions. This wavelength targets hemoglobin, water, and melanin to resolve an array of skin concerns. The Aerolase Neo unique, defining feature is the 650 Microsecond Technology, which offers the power and efficacy of other high-powered lasers with minimal discomfort or the potential for damage.

What can be treated with Aerolase?

HydraFacial MD

The advanced HydraFacial system uses a handheld device to revitalize the skin in three steps. First your skin will be gently exfoliated, then the suction will extract debris from your pores, and then your skin will be hydrated with a customizable blend of antioxidants and serums. You can experience a dramatic improvement in the look and feel of your skin after just one treatment.

What is unique about the HydraFacial system?

The gentle HydraFacial device delivers a remarkable improvement in skin quality and appearance without chemicals or harsh methods of exfoliation. The system strikes a perfect balance between effective revitalization and very little recovery time. It can also be personalized to each patient based on your skin type and any concerns you have, and is gentle enough to be repeated on a regular basis.

DEKA Tetra CO2

The Tetra CO2 laser is the latest advancement in laser skin resurfacing. What makes the Tetra CO2 laser unique is that the treatment can be completely customized to a patient’s exact needs. Your provider can choose the pulse speed, power, and density of the treatment. This allows your provider to tailor the laser treatment to you, which isn’t possible using other one-size-fits-all machines. For patients who are older, or dealing with common signs of aging, the Tetra CO2 can be used on fine lines and wrinkles. For younger patients or those who may be struggling with skin texture, the Tetra CO2 can also help.

CoolPeel with Tetra CO2

One of the best features of the laser is the ability to perform CoolPeel, a new type of CO2 resurfacing treatment. This treatment is able to deliver fractional ablative treatment without the downtime or redness of traditional CO2 treatments. The CoolPeel can be used to treat sun damage, fine lines, and skin texture.

Ideal Candidates for DEKA Tetra CO2

One of the hallmarks of this new laser treatment is that just about everyone is an ideal candidate. The machine can be adjusted to fit your needs and address your specific concerns. Some of the most common issues treated by the Tetra CO2 include:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Brown spots
  • Scars
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Sunspots

Vivace Radiofrequency Microneedling System

The Vivace combines the benefits of microneedling with the warming effects of radiofrequency to revitalize the skin by improving the look of fine lines, tightening the skin, and providing a youthful glow.

  • Safe and effective
  • Very low risk of complications

It can be used in the NICU, operating rooms, isolation rooms, patient care areas and laboratories. When used as directed, it will also effectively clean and decontaminate critical and semi-critical instrumentation.

  8. Plexiglass shields will be in place at the check-in and check out areas to prevent aerosol transmission.
  9. We offer "No touch" payment methods such as Apple Pay, Google Pay and online invoicing.
