MOXI™ Laser Skin Rejuvenation
Are you looking for a way to hold onto the radiance and youthful texture of your skin? Dr. Glen Brooks offers gentle yet effective MOXI laser skin rejuvenation at his practice near Springfield, Massachusetts. These treatments are great for younger patients interested in “prejuvenation.” They can be performed any time of year to keep early signs of sun damage and aging in check with no downtime.
What Is MOXI?
Safe for all skin types and colors, MOXI provides gentle skin rejuvenation on the face, neck, décolletage, arms, and hands. Women and men choose it for a variety of benefits, including:
- Softening fine lines and wrinkles
- Improving skin tone
- Smoothing out uneven texture
- Maintaining the results of stronger treatments
For more noticeable results, we can perform a BBL HERO® treatment before MOXI to address brown pigmentation issues and redness. Our ProFractional™, HALO® and erbium resurfacing lasers affect the skin at the surface and below to correct more significant signs of aging and sun damage as well as stretch marks and acne scars.
How does MOXI work?
MOXI is a non-ablative fractional laser that penetrates the skin’s surface harmlessly and creates thousands of tiny, microchannels into the deeper layers. The laser energy breaks up pigment and causes a healing response in the skin, generating fresh new skin cells, collagen, and elastin. As with Morpheus8 RF microneedling, points of skin between the treated pinpoints are left undamaged to minimize recovery time.
What to Expect
MOXI is an office treatment performed by Dr. Brooks and his experienced providers. Your provider can adjust the intensity of the laser to address your concerns and desired downtime. While numbing cream usually isn’t needed, we have it available if you have any concerns about discomfort. Once your eyes are covered with protective shields, your provider will run the MOXI handpiece across the skin as quick flashes of light are released. Treatments are usually complete in 15 to 30 minutes, making MOXI an ideal lunchtime procedure.
Because the procedure is so gentle, downtime is nonexistent. For the first few hours, the skin will feel warm and look dark pink like a sunburn. Within a few days, your skin will feel slightly rough like sandpaper, and you may see tiny dots of color from the laser. The skin and dots will slough off gradually over the following week.
You can apply makeup the day after your treatment, but you should avoid retinol products for about a week. It’s important to wear high-quality sunscreen consistently and minimize sun exposure.
It takes just about a week to see the difference MOXI can make in the skin’s tone and texture. Full results are reached in about 3 months as collagen is replenished in the skin. For optimal results, we recommend a series of 3 treatments, each spaced a month apart. You can return for maintenance treatments as needed to keep your skin’s smooth, firm texture and glowing radiance.
