How does the MOXI laser work to rejuvenate skin?
MOXI is a non-ablative fractional laser skin treatment for the face and body. Non-ablative lasers work by penetrating the skin but not creating an open wound to do so. MOXI's fractionated wavelength (1927 nanometers) simply penetrates the top layer of skin to give you a minimally-invasive way of targeting skin cells that cause hyperpigmentation and other skin discoloration.
MOXI laser treatment also helps rejuvenate skin by encouraging the body to generate new skin cells and ramp up collagen production. Collagen is a building block of youthful skin that acts as the infrastructure to keep your skin from wrinkling and sagging. Collagen production naturally depletes as we age, but MOXI treatments can boost its production.
How is MOXI different from other laser treatments that clear skin?
MOXI is an excellent option for those who not only see skin imperfections developing or are troubled by aging skin but also people who want preventive treatment. It works by creating what we call "micro-injuries" beneath the skin. This lets your body produce a healing response that generates new cells and collagen production.
If you know where your trouble spots might be due to sun exposure or even genetics, using MOXI early can help your body maintain collagen production and take care of any early signs of skin cells carrying too much pigmentation that may lead to redness or brown spots. It's safe and effective for all skin types.
There is little downtime following MOXI treatments, and it's a quick and comfortable procedure. Some patients report feeling a snapping sensation or heat on the skin, but a numbing cream is available upon request. Your esthetician will explain the entire process so you know what to expect and help reduce your anxiety about your treatment.
When will I see clear skin after MOXI treatment?
Because laser treatment creates micro-injuries, your body's first response will be redness and swelling since that's how the body activates the healing process that leads to better skin. You may see some peeling in the 3 - 5 days following treatment, but this is natural and allows the skin to regrow stronger and smoother. Some patients experience dryness or tingling, but this subsides quickly, and your esthetician will give you aftercare instructions for the best results.
Clients can return to their everyday activities right away. There's no need for downtime after the MOXI laser treatment; it only takes 15 to 30 minutes, depending on the size and number of treatment areas.
Results from your MOXI skin rejuvenation can last for up to a year. Of course, the natural healing process will take some time, so you can expect to see clearer skin in a few days, but collagen production takes a few weeks, and full results can be seen around the 3-month mark.
