Although we’d all love to have naturally smooth and radiant skin, it doesn’t typically work out that way. As our bodies age, our skin tends to develop fine lines, wrinkles, laxity, and various other imperfections. These blemishes not only prevent us from achieving vibrant, youthful skin, but they also tend to make us feel self-conscious and look older than we truly are. At SGK Plastic Surgery, we offer MOXI Laser treatment for patients who would like to resurface their skin and reduce signs of aging.

What Is MOXI Laser Treatment?

The MOXI Laser by Sciton is an advanced non-ablative fractional laser system designed to rejuvenate and improve the appearance of your skin by comfortably delivering laser energy into the skin to correct the signs of aging, sun damage, and Melasama, no matter the season or skin type—for a glowing and clear complexion.

The Moxi Laser is designed to treat various skin concerns including:

  • Fine Lines and Wrinkles: The laser can help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, giving the skin a smoother and more youthful look.
  • Uneven Skin Tone: MOXI Laser can target areas of hyperpigmentation or uneven skin tone, such as sunspots, age spots, and melasma.
  • Texture Irregularities: It can improve skin texture by addressing roughness, acne scars, and other surface irregularities.
  • Dull and Tired-Looking Skin: The laser treatment can refresh and revitalize the skin, making it appear more radiant and vibrant.

How Does the MOXI Laser Work?

MOXI is a gentle and powerful 1927nm non-ablative laser that penetrates the deeper layers of the targeted skin. The laser targets the water within cells to stimulate the body’s natural healing process while also removing the outermost layer of skin. As a result, skin damage and signs of aging are significantly reduced while new, healthy skin cells are generated. This enhances the health, tone, and texture of the skin.

Where Can the MOXI Laser Be Used?

The MOXI Laser can be used to treat the skin in several different areas, including:

  • Face
  • Neck
  • Legs
  • Arms
  • Chest
  • Hands

What Should I Expect During the Procedure?

During your consultation, our experienced and licensed aesthetician and laser technician will carefully assess your skin's condition and customize a treatment plan tailored to your unique needs. To begin your MOXI laser treatment, a topical numbing cream will be applied to your skin in the treatment area to minimize any discomfort. Once your treatment area is numb, your face will be cleaned, and you will be given protective eyewear to keep your eyes safe from the laser. Our master aesthetician and laser technician will then carefully guide the MOXI Laser over your skin; during this part of the process, you may feel a slight warming sensation. In total, the procedure will take between 15 and 60 minutes depending on the size of the treatment area. You will be able to return home immediately after the session.

How Long Is the Recovery Time?

After your MOXI Laser treatment, you’ll be given detailed aftercare instructions to ensure that your skin heals properly.Most patients can return to work and their normal routines immediately after MOXI Laser treatment, but you’ll want to avoid strenuous physical activity for at least three days. You may notice some mild redness and slight swelling in the treated area. These effects are expected and typically subside within a few days. You can expect MENDs (microscopic epidermal necrotic debris) that will appear on the 2nd or 3rd day after treatment as tiny dark spots and a bronzed appearance to the treated skin. During this time, your skin will be very dry and feel like sandpaper before flaking off within 3-7 days.

Am I a Candidate for MOXI Laser Treatment?

Adults who want to achieve healthier skin and delay the signs of aging could be good candidates for the MOXI Laser. The MOXI Laser can be used to treat all skin types and tones. To be an ideal candidate for the treatment, you should:

  • Be in generally good physical health
  • Have the desire for smoother, healthier, more youthful-looking skin
  • Have no active skin infections near the treatment area
  • Have not taken Accutane in the last year
  • Have realistic expectations
  • Not be currently pregnant

How Long Will It Take To See Results After MOXI Laser Treatment?

After the skin is fully healed, most patients notice a more even skin tone after their MOXI laser treatment. For full anti-aging benefits and optimal results, patients require at least three treatment sessions spaced approximately one month apart.
