With the prevalence of skin issues in recent years, many people are looking for ways to improve their skin care routines. While some find relief in chemical peels for issues such as acne scars and fine lines, those struggling with hyperpigmentation and uneven skin tone or texture find that they need something better-tailored to their issues.

Fortunately, MOXI Laser treatment is able to brighten and refresh various skin types.

What is MOXI Laser treatment?

MOXI is a cutting-edge laser treatment that is able to gently lighten and refresh skin with little-to-no downtime. MOXI can effectively treat issues such as hyperpigmentation and melasma and was created due to an immutable demand for preventative skincare treatments of a higher caliber.

MOXI focuses on “prejuvenation,” or preventative skincare, which can be beneficial to patients with any and all skin types. Whether the patient has just begun their skincare journey or is simply looking for a quick touch-up, MOXI laser treatment is a popular option. It differs from other skin treatments in that it can help both patients with younger skin and those who simply want to maintain their skin quality with a light rejuvenation.

How does MOXI laser treatment work?

MOXI is a nonabrasive laser treatment that is able to focus on and address early signs of sun damage and aging. The laser works by delivering non-ablative energy underneath the skin’s surface, creating micro zones that stimulate collagen production. The increased collagen leads to a higher rate of cell turnover, resulting in firmer, tighter skin. After receiving treatment and waiting out the full recovery process, patients walk away with improved skin tone and lightening of discoloration.

Unlike other treatments, MOXI is specifically tailored for younger patients that seek to take preventative measures against aging. It has a fractionated 1927 nm wavelength that gives patients a glowing appearance without any downtime, so they won’t have to miss out on parties or social events. MOXI is able to deliver laser energy into the skin and correct all of the early signs of damage and aging, regardless of the patient's skin type or what season it is.
