Motif San Bernardino | Laser hair removal Treatment Riverside



Hair-Free Skin

Traditional methods of hair removal such as shaving, waxing, or plucking are time-consuming and only last for a few days are temporary. These methods need to be re-done on a regular basis to keep unwanted hair gone. For those with blonde or white hair can’t use the time proven and reliable GentleLase Pro. Thus, a subgroup of people still desires a more permanent solution to unwanted light-colored hair and desire to undergo laser hair removal. In Riverside, Dr. Hardesty of Imagine Plastic Surgery is providing patients with the best in laser hair removal technology for light colored hair. Thus, “One Goal, Many Options,” Dr. Hardesty and his staff care about patients and want to provide those with light hair an alternative to the GentleLase Pro laser primarily only for dark colored hair.

What is Motif Laser Hair Removal?

Powered by the proprietary elōs technology, Motif is the first and only technology that uses combined energies of Radio Frequency (RF) and electroptical energy to gently remove hair from all lighter hair tones.  Since the Motif is “color blind,” in contrast to the gold standard Gentle Pro Laser, The Motif can treat darker skin colors and tones without damaging them. The hair follicles are precisely targeted and destroyed using the revolutionary elōs combination of bi-polar radio frequency with an 810-diode laser. Motif LHR selectively targets the hair follicle while protecting the surrounding tissue so it’s safe and effective for all skin colors, tones, and types. Achieving beautiful, silky-smooth, non-pigmented hair bearing skin is now easier than ever! Dr. Hardesty recommends the Motif Laser hair removal system. Dr. Hardesty offers his patients to see the difference in hair removal results for blonde or light-colored hair by using this combination of electroptical and RF energized technology.

Motif Treatments

Motif is an innovative procedure that provides safe and effective treatment. This laser can treat wrinkles as well as any unwanted hair. Dr. Hardesty will come up with a unique treatment plan for you at the consultation appointment. Dr. Hardesty will go over the entire treatment and expected results so that you feel comfortable and knowledgeable before undergoing the procedure.

How Does it Work?

Besides light hair removal, the combined energies of elōs and motif technology precisely heat the connective tissue within the treatment area. This stimulates collagen production and produces a younger appearance in the skin. Mild to moderate wrinkles are reduced, as well as pore size, and the texture of your skin becomes smoother.

Are Results Instant?

Hair growth is reduced after each treatment. The number of treatments required will vary, depending on the location and size of the area being treated as well as the individual rate your hair grows. That’s because hair grows in three stages and it needs to be in the “growth” stage in order for the Motif treatment. The hairs on your body are not always at the same stage, so you’ll need to undergo a few treatments, an average of 4-to-6 weeks apart, to catch all of light-colored hairs in their growth stage.

Motif Recovery

Instructions for pre-treatment and post-treatment care will be provided by Dr. Hardesty. This treatment is safe with no downtime associated. Many patients return to normal activities immediately following their treatment.
