WHAT IS MOXI?
Moxi is an office treatment that is quick enough to be done during your lunchtime! Specifically designed for younger patients and targeted towards preventative anti-aging measures, MOXI’s fractionated 1927 nm wavelength leaves patients glowing without any required social downtime. Moxi comfortably delivers non-ablative laser energy to revitalize your skin by correcting the initial signs of sun damage and aging, no matter the season or skin type.
ARE YOU A CANDIDATE?
Moxi is great for all skin types!
HOW IT'S DONE:
It is a non-ablative fractionated laser that converts electrical energy into light. When converted to light it then targets pigment by creating tiny, micro injuries in the superficial top layer of skin. These micro injuries stimulate the dermal repair process, revitalizing tone and texture and reducing the appearance of brown and red spots caused by sun damage or aging.
RESULTS, RECOVERY, FREQUENCY
Recovery is 3-4 days with no downtime. You will need multiple Moxi treatments to see a significant results. The more treatments you do, the better your results will be. It is recommended you do 3-4 sessions, spaced a week apart. Once you have received your desired look, it is helpful to have follow up treatments 1-2 times a year.
WHAT TO EXPECT:
The treated area may be extremely warm for 1-2 hours after the treatment. Warmth may continue for 12-24 hours after the treatment.
Redness and swelling are normal and expected. Redness generally increases in intensity for the first few days after treatment with day 3 usually being the most intense. Redness can persist for up to 7 days depending on the intensity treatment.
MENDs (microscopic epidermal necrotic debris) will appear on the 2nd or 3rd day after treatment as tiny dark spots and bronzed appearance to the treated skin.
Come in as is!
Cleanse the skin two times a day with plain, lukewarm water and a gentle cleanser, beginning
the morning after the treatment. Use your hands and gentle patting motions.
DO NOT rub, scrub, use an exfoliant or skin care brush such as a Clarisonic on the treated area.
Moisturizer should be applied generously with clean hands over treated area and reapplied whenever your skin feels dry. DO NOT apply any other products that were not instructed by your doctor – eg. essential oils, coconut oil, etc.
Sunscreen is a MUST and should be used daily beginning the day after treatment and used consistently for up to 3 months post procedure. Use a physical sunscreen with Broadband UVA and UVB protection and a SPF of 30. Ensure to reapply during sun exposure.
