Achieve the smooth, hairless skin of your dreams
Hair removal is a pain (sometimes both figuratively and literally). Shaving is tedious and time-consuming.
Waxing is uncomfortable and expensive. Depilatory creams are messy and can irritate your skin. And tweezing each unwanted hair individually? Forget about it.
At Levitt Medical Aesthetics, Dr. Scott Levitt offers laser hair removal to his patients in Albany using the incredible Motus Alexandrite, or AY laser. The Motus platform is the first high-speed Alexandrite lasers that allow light AND dark skin tones to benefit from the effectiveness of the Alexandrite wavelength. No matter your skin color, a series of treatments with the Alexandrite laser with Dr. Levitt can help your skin feel smooth and summer-ready, all year round. Plus, it’s completely painless and can even eliminate fine hairs!
- Quick, in-office procedure
- Decreases ingrown hairs
- Simplifies your routine
- Long-lasting results
- Significantly more comfortable than other hair removal methods
- Targets all hair types, even fine hair
How it works
In the past, you had to have light skin and dark hair for laser hair removal to work best. We also advised people to not tan for several weeks prior to their laser hair removal treatments.
Thanks to the Motus Alexandrite laser platform, this is no longer the case! An Alexandrite laser is much more powerful than any other laser hair removal device on the market. It’s advanced technology can target only very dark pigments in a hair follicle, using its laser beam to vaporize the follicle and leave surrounding skin unharmed, for any skin tone—even Fitzpatrick Type VI!
A typical laser hair removal regimen is 5 to 6 sessions spaced one month apart and then maintenance treatments as needed. Given the power of the Motus AY, you may need fewer sessions and could go longer before needing a touch–up treatment.
The number of sessions required to eliminate hair completely depends on the individual.
What to expect
Most laser systems with visible and infrared wavelengths emit energy that is largely reflected by the skin, reducing the energy available for actually treating the unwanted hair.
The unique Moveo handpiece on the Motus AY laser solves this problem, enabling 100% energy absorption. The result is double the energy delivered to the skin compared to standard laser hair removal machines. This means you spend less time under the laser for way better results! Additionally the Moveo handpiece integrates contact cooling, which makes it the only hair removal laser that is truly pain free!
There is no required downtime following a laser hair removal treatment at our Albany office.
You can return to home or work right away, and may apply makeup if your treatment involved your face. You might notice some redness or flushing of the skin, but it typically subsides within a matter of hours. Carefully protect your skin from sun exposure for at least a few days. Dr. Levitt will give you instructions regarding proper care for your skin after treatment to ensure the best results.
Before & after
Motus AX hair removal is appropriate for women and men of almost any age who would like long-lasting hair reduction. Anyone with any skin tone can receive a Motus AX treatment, it even targets fine, vellus hairs rather than just dark hair! We do not recommend the procedure for women who are pregnant. Dr. Levitt will assess your skin, your aesthetic goals, and your health history at your consultation to ensure you are a candidate for the procedure.
The cost of laser hair removal varies depending upon the area of the body you want to treat and how many sessions you need. The larger the area, the more time it will require. The amount of time will determine the exact price of treatment. We also now offer “treat to complete” packages, where you can pay one price and get as many treatments as required to get rid of the hair.
Some people see permanent results, while some people may need a touch-up treatment every six to twelve months. Results vary depending on your hair type and skin type. Proper preparation and aftercare can also affect how long the results last.
In most cases, you’ll need between five and eight treatments. We space these treatments four to six weeks apart. The waiting period is necessary to target every hair follicle while it’s in an active stage of the growth cycle.

Dr. Levitt is very precise!
Dr. Levitt takes the time one needs to be heard and never pushed me toward a treatment I didn’t want or need. He’s kind, smart, and a real human being. Drove two hours just to get an ablative facial service. He has great care protocols and made the experience comfortable. Will keep coming back.
