In the realm of skincare and dermatology, Moxi has emerged as a game-changing laser, offering a non-invasive and effective solution for a range of skin concerns. With little down time and incredible results, Moxi presents a revolutionary approach to achieving radiant and healthy skin. In this blog, we will delve into how Moxi works, the various skin conditions it can treat, the recommended treatment regimen, pre and post-care instructions, and conclude with the potential it holds for transforming skin rejuvenation treatments.
How Moxi Works
Moxi is a non-ablative 1927nm wavelength laser that targets water within cells to work with the body’s natural healing processes for a gentle treatment with little-to-no downtime. During a Moxi treatment, the laser creates micro-coagulation zones, inducing the body's natural healing process to promote collagen production, improves blood circulation, and encourages cell regeneration.
The controlled laser energy helps to reduce pigmentation, shrink pores, and even out skin tone, resulting in a more youthful and radiant complexion. Moxi comfortably delivers non-ablative laser energy to correct the initial signs of sun damage and aging—no matter the season or skin type—for a glowing and clear complexion. This procedure is also safe for men with facial hair. This laser is also perfect if you are looking for a gentle, non-invasive, lunchtime treatment.
Treatable Skin Conditions
Moxi has proven to be highly effective in addressing a wide range of skin concerns, including:
Fine Lines and Wrinkles: It can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, promoting a smoother and more youthful complexion
Pigmentation Issues: Moxi can help to fade hyperpigmentation, sunspots, and melasma, leading to a more even skin tone
Acne and Acne Scars: It aids in controlling acne breakouts and minimizing the appearance of acne scars
Dull and Lackluster Skin: The treatment restores radiance and brightness to dull and tired-looking skin
Enlarged Pores: It can shrink the size of enlarged pores, giving the skin a smoother texture
Recommended Number of Treatments:
The number of sessions required depends on the severity of the skin condition being treated and the individual's unique skin response. In many cases, patients notice visible improvements after just one treatment. However, for optimal and long-lasting results, a series of treatments is often recommended.
The treatment plan is typically tailored to the individual's specific needs and skincare goals. Generally, patients undergo a series of three to six sessions spaced 4-6 weeks apart. After the initial treatment phase, periodic maintenance sessions may be scheduled to sustain the benefits.
What You Can Expect Before and After a Moxi Treatment
Before your procedure, you will want to avoid any exfoliates, retinols, tanning/tanning beds, and excessive sun exposure for a few days. A gentle cleanser and moisturizer should be used for 3-7 days post treatment, and sunscreen should be applied every 2-4 hours.
On the day of your MOXI™ procedure, a numbing cream will be applied 20 minutes before the treatment to ensure your comfort. The procedure itself is quick, usually taking around 10-15 minutes to complete.
After the MOXI™ procedure, it's common for your skin to exhibit redness, which typically lasts for a few hours. You may experience mild warmth and discomfort, which can persist for 20-40 minutes and sometimes up to 24 hours. To alleviate this minimal to moderate discomfort, a cooling mask, cold compress, or icing can be applied.
It's normal for tiny brown spots, known as "MENDS" (microscopic epidermal necrotic debris), to appear on your skin 1-3 days after the MOXI™ procedure. These spots, which manifest as small brown dots, play a vital role in the healing process and contribute to skin rejuvenation. (The more MENDS, the merrier!) Within a week, the MENDS will naturally peel off, revealing a glowing and rejuvenated complexion.
You may apply makeup 24 hours after the treatment. Be patient as your skin continues to improve over time, and enjoy the long-lasting benefits of the MOXI™ procedure.
To ensure the best possible outcomes and minimize any potential side effects, adhering to pre and post-care instructions is crucial:
Consult with a qualified dermatologist or skincare professional to determine if the Moxi is suitable for your skin type and concerns
Avoid direct sun exposure and use sunscreen daily leading up to the treatment
Refrain from using topical retinoids and exfoliants for a few days before the session
Apply a soothing and hydrating moisturizer to the treated area to aid in the healing process
Protect your skin from the sun and wear sunscreen with adequate SPF
Avoid rigorous physical activities and hot showers immediately after the treatment
Moxi has opened up a new era in the world of skin rejuvenation and dermatology. From diminishing fine lines and wrinkles to reducing pigmentation and acne scars, Moxi presents a versatile approach to achieving radiant and youthful skin. As more research and advancements continue to unfold, the potential of Moxi to revolutionize skincare treatments and provide individuals with renewed confidence in their skin's appearance is undeniable.
However, remember that every individual's skin is unique, and results may vary. Prioritize consulting with a qualified skincare professional to determine the best treatment plan tailored to your specific needs.
