Prejuvenation with MOXI 1 scaled e1716398409824

Preventing aging before it starts is becoming a priority for many people, and the MOXI laser treatment is at the forefront of this proactive approach. Unlike treatments that address existing signs of aging, MOXI targets skin health early, maintaining a youthful appearance. By addressing pigmentation, improving skin tone, and enhancing texture with minimal downtime, MOXI offers a gentle yet effective solution. This innovative laser treatment is effective on any skin type and is designed to prevent the first signs of aging, ensuring your skin stays radiant and healthy.

What is MOXI?

MOXI is a non-ablative fractional laser treatment designed to maintain youthful skin by preventing the early signs of aging. Developed by Sciton, MOXI uses fractionated laser energy to induce controlled micro-injuries in the skin, prompting the body’s natural healing response. This process boosts collagen and elastin production, structural proteins that maintain skin elasticity and firmness.

The fractional technique means that only a fraction of the skin is treated in each session, allowing for faster healing and less downtime compared to more aggressive laser treatments. The laser energy targets pigmentation irregularities and sun damage, breaking down melanin and promoting an even skin tone.

MOXI’s non-ablative nature means that it doesn’t remove any layers of skin, reducing the risk of complications and making it suitable for all skin types and tones. The energy settings can be adjusted to customize the treatment based on individual skin concerns and desired outcomes.

Benefits of MOXI for Prejuvenation

  • Prevents Early Signs of Aging: MOXI targets and treats the initial signs of aging before they become more pronounced. This proactive approach helps maintain a youthful impression over time.
  • Improves Skin Tone and Texture: By addressing uneven pigmentation and refining skin texture, MOXI helps achieve a smoother and more even complexion, contributing to an overall youthful look.
  • Minimal Downtime: Unlike more aggressive laser treatments, MOXI requires minimal recovery time. Patients can typically return to their normal activities shortly after the procedure.
  • Suitable for All Skin Types: MOXI is effective on all skin types and tones, making it a versatile treatment application for a wide range of individuals.
  • Gentle and Non-Invasive: MOXI’s non-ablative nature means it does not remove layers of skin, reducing the risk of complications and making the treatment gentle yet effective.
  • Long-Term Maintenance: Regular MOXI treatments can extend the results of more aggressive procedures and maintain the appearance of healthy skin over the long term. This makes it an excellent option for ongoing skin health management​​.
  • Quick Treatment Sessions: MOXI sessions are typically short, making it convenient for individuals with busy schedules. The procedure can be completed in about 8-10 minutes.

MOXI Treatment Experience

On the day of the treatment, a numbing cream is typically applied to the areas that will be treated, such as the face, neck, or chest, to ensure maximum comfort. This cream is left on for about 20 minutes to take full effect. During the procedure, the MOXI laser device is passed over the skin multiple times, emitting fractionated laser energy to create controlled micro-injuries. These micro-injuries stimulate the body’s natural healing process, boosting collagen and elastin production.

Patients often describe the sensation during the treatment as a mild warmth or a slight prickling feeling. Some providers offer a cooling fan or a Velez Cooling Mask immediately after the procedure to soothe the skin and provide instant relief from any residual warmth.

Post-treatment care is straightforward. Patients are advised to avoid washing the treated area for the rest of the day and to use cold compresses if necessary to reduce any discomfort or swelling. Redness and a sensation comparable to sunburn are common immediately following the treatment, but these symptoms typically subside within a few hours. Over the next few days, the skin may feel dry and rough as it undergoes the healing process, eventually revealing a smoother, more radiant complexion.

MOXI Vs. Traditional Lasers

Each option has its unique benefits, recovery times, and suitability for various skin types. Here’s a closer look at how MOXI compares to traditional laser treatments​:

Treatment Type and Target

  • MOXI: A non-ablative fractional laser designed for prejuvenation. It focuses on preventing early signs of aging by targeting pigmentation, improving skin tone and texture, and promoting collagen production.
  • Traditional Lasers: Include a range of ablative and non-ablative lasers like CO2, Fraxel, and IPL. These lasers are often used to treat more severe skin concerns such as deep wrinkles, significant sun damage, and scarring by removing layers of skin or heating deeper layers to stimulate repair and regeneration.

Suitability and Skin Types

  • MOXI: Suitable for all skin types and tones, making it a versatile option for a broader range of individuals. Its gentle nature reduces the risk of hyperpigmentation, especially in darker skin tones​.
  • Traditional Lasers: Some traditional lasers, particularly ablative ones, may not suit darker skin tones due to the higher risk of hyperpigmentation and other complications. Non-ablative lasers offer more flexibility but still require careful consideration of skin type.

Treatment Frequency

  • MOXI: Recommended as a maintenance treatment, with sessions typically spaced several months apart. Ideal for ongoing skin health and prejuvenation to prevent aging signs from developing.
  • Traditional Lasers: Often used for corrective treatments with fewer sessions needed but more intensive procedures. Ablative lasers might only require one or two sessions for dramatic results, while non-ablative treatments might need multiple sessions over a shorter period for cumulative effects​.

Comfort and Procedure

  • MOXI: Generally well-tolerated with a mild warmth or prickling sensation during the procedure. Numbing cream is spread beforehand to enhance comfort, and post-treatment cooling masks help soothe the skin​​.
  • Traditional Lasers: Vary in comfort levels. Ablative lasers can be more painful and often necessitate more extensive numbing or anesthesia. Non-ablative lasers like Fraxel are less painful but still require some numbing and involve discomfort during and after the treatment​.
