Do you have any unwanted body hair that you are keen to get rid of?

From electrolysis to depilation, waxing, to prescription creams, keep reading to discover the perfect hair removal treatment for you and your unwanted body hair. 

What causes excess body hair & how does it affect your life?

There are many reasons why you may be more prone to excessive amounts of body and face hair. These include:

  • You have polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) 
  • You have a high body mass index (BMI)
  • You are taking anabolic steroids 
  • You have Cushing’s syndrome
  • You have a thyroid disorder that affects your hormone levels

Hirsutism is also linked to certain drugs, including antidepressants, some antibiotics, sleeping medications, and any drugs that alter the hormone production in your body. 

Although excess body hair might not seem like a major health concern, for women who suffer from this, it can have a seriously detrimental impact on their daily life. From issues with low self-esteem to reduced confidence, and in some cases, women may even stop leaving their homes for fear of being judged. 

How can I remove unwanted body hair?

As you are probably already aware, there are many treatments available that promise to remove unwanted body hair, with each one delivering varying results. 

Below are the most common hair removal methods:


Arguably the cheapest and most convenient method, shaving is a great last-minute hair removal method that requires no expertise. Unfortunately, your hair will grow back very quickly, so you will need to shave often if you choose this method. 

Depilatory cream 

By applying chemicals to the affected areas, the hair above the skin is softened and can be easily wiped away. However, many women are discouraged by the smell and, if you have sensitive skin, this may cause you issues. 


Waxing can be carried out either at home or by a professional and involves either hot or cold wax is applied to pull hairs out from the root. This treatment needs to be done once every 2-3 weeks.


A method that many shy away from because it ranks high on the pain scale, epilation works by plucking the hairs from the root. The effects of epilation should last up to four weeks but be warned; this is not the best option for sensitive areas of skin such as your bikini line. 

What are the most permanent hair removal methods? 

You may want to consider the below treatments for those who want a more permanent solution to excessive body hair. 


This method uses shortwave radio frequencies that are distributed through fine needles placed directly onto your hair follicles. This is supposed to destroy the hair follicles so that new hair growth is no longer stimulated. 

Laser hair removal 

Another more permanent solution, a laser, is pointed directly at the skin, and the light is absorbed by colour (pigment) in the hair, which in turn destroys the hair. This method is typically carried out over several sessions, with results lasting for months or longer. 

Prescription creams 

Several prescription creams that a dermatologist may offer you to help remove excess body hair, including eflornithine (Vaniqa), which you apply twice a day for a month. This cream works by inhibiting the production of enzymes that stimulate hair growth. You can expect the results to last for up to eight weeks before you need to start the process over again. 

Prescription medications

Although not everyone will want to take a prescription drug to deal with unwanted body hair, there are ones available that are quite effective. One of these drugs is Spironolactone, a pill that is designed to slow or reduce hair growth in areas that you do not want to have hair. 

What is Motus AX laser hair removal?

If you have been put off the idea of laser hair removal due to concerns over the amount of pain that this procedure is supposed to cause, then you will be happy to hear that there is a new laser hair removal in town, and this one promises to be completely pain-free. 

Motus AX is a laser hair removal therapy with a difference. Designed by one of the top laser device producers in Europe, it uses an alexandrite laser to seek out very dark pigment to destroy hair follicles and break up pigment lesions in the skin. 

So, what makes this laser treatment different from its predecessors? 


Motus AX is a relatively quick treatment for hair removal, with small areas completed in under five minutes. 

Suitable for all skin tones

Motus AX is the first alexandrite laser that is safe for all skin tones, even those that are a type VI on the Fitzpatrick scale.


As mentioned above, the Motus AX offers a much more comfortable experience than other laser treatments, with no rubber-band-type snapping or too much heat. 


If you are looking for a more efficient hair removal method, then you should know that the Motus AX is much more powerful than other lasers and requires fewer hair removal sessions. 

Is Motus AX hair removal permanent?

Sadly, there are no hair removal treatments that are 100% permanent. However, what the Motus AX hair removal treatment does is reduce the number of hair follicles permanently and significantly in any given area, making it one of the most effective hair removal methods on the market.
