MOXI was created out of a clear and indisputable demand for better preventative skincare treatments.
The idea of “prejuvenation” is perfect for those just starting their skincare journey, looking for a light touch up, or those wanting something more but without downtime. MOXI opens the door to a younger patient demographic, as well as those looking to maintain their skin through light revitalization.
How Does MOXI Laser Work?
The MOXI Laser is the newest, non-ablative, fractionated laser by the industry-leading skin-resurfacing company, Sciton.
MOXI delivers non-ablative energy below the skin’s surface which creates thousands of micro-channels which simulate collagen for firmer, tighter skin. It also provides fractionated energy which means it targets very small areas, deep into the skin, without harming the outer layers, which promotes new cell growth and reduces unwanted pigment.
What Skin Conditions Does MOXI Treat?
The MOXI laser facial is designed to polish your skin’s tone and texture, but it also does the following:
Refines uneven pigmentation
Enhances skin tone
Smooths rough texture
Targets light sun damage
Rejuvenates visible signs of skin-aging
Who is a good candidate for MOXI?
The short answer is – everyone.
MOXI is ideal for both younger patients who are just starting to think about long-term skin care and pre-rejuvenation but it is also the ideal treatment for people wanting to revitalize and refresh their skin’s appearance without any downtime.
The MOXI laser facial is safe for people with all skin types but as with all lasers, but if you have a darker skin type, your provider will be a bit more cautious with the strength of the treatment.
How does MOXI Treatment work?
A MOXI Laser Facial is often referred to as the ‘lunchtime facial’ because it is so quick and easy, usually only taking around 30-minutes. Most people do not require any topical numbing, but for those who are concerned about pain, numbing cream is an option.
During the procedure, your provider will gently move the MOXI tip across your face and you will hear a soft snapping noise. Most people describe the sensation as ‘tingling heat’ but this goes away fairly quickly.
What is the MOXI Treatment downtime?
MOXI requires very little downtime. After your treatment, your skin will appear pink and feel warm to the touch. It may feel like you have a sunburn for the rest of the day.
Over the next few days, the treated skin cells will slough off and you will experience some temporary roughness. But in about five days, you’ll be left with fresher, healthier, firmer skin.
