As we age, we have repeated sun exposure and damage of everyday living that results in visible signs of skin aging, including wrinkles, discoloration, scars, and laxity. Fortunately, there are laser treatments like Sciton’s MOXI laser treatment that can help you “prejuvenate” your skin to prevent premature signs of aging.
MOXI is Sciton’s brand new non-ablative resurfacing laser treatment that precisely targets years of skin damage and visible signs of aging, with minimal downtime.
What is MOXI Laser Resurfacing?
The MOXI laser by Sciton is a non-invasive skin rejuvenation treatment that uses fractionated laser energy that’s non-ablative to stimulate the superficial layers of skin to heal sun damage and enhance skin texture. Moxi is not the most powerful tool in AustinMD’s lineup of facial resurfacing lasers, but it is one with hardly any downtime – you can return to your normal social and work life immediately after treatment.
Specifically, Moxi uses a 1927nm wavelength to penetrate the upper layers of the epidermis and dermis and targets water, not melanin or blood vessels, to selectively heat certain layers. This triggers a healing response that can tighten skin and create renewed skin beneath what’s seen on the surface, leading to longer-lasting results.
The best candidate for Moxi treatment is someone looking to prevent the signs of aging like uneven skin tone, rough skin texture, and fine lines. It can also be highly effective for those looking for mild to moderate correction of the early signs of aging with a round of multiple treatment sessions.
What Skin Concerns Does MOXI Treat?
MOXI is most effective at “pre-juvenation,” or promoting good skin quality while you do not see signs of aging appearing, but it can also be used to treat specific concerns. In that regard, MOXI treats the following issues:
Mild signs of aging (fine lines)
Pigmentation and sun damage
Uneven skin tone
Poor or rough skin texture
What Areas Does the MOXI Laser Treat?
Sciton’s MOXI laser is most often used on the face and neck, but is safe and frequently used in other areas as well – anywhere you may have concerns about pigmentation or rough skin, for example. MOXI can be used on the:
One of the best benefits of MOXI is that it can be used on skin of all types and colors due to its mild stimulating effect. This is distinct from other laser treatments that use more intense energy or different wavelengths that can be potentially harmful for darker skin.
What to Expect From MOXI Laser Treatments
The overall treatment is very quick and comfortable, and we offer a topical numbing cream for those who are sensitive to laser skin treatments. Patients can apply makeup within 24 hours of the procedure and return to work or their normal lives immediately after a treatments session.
A typical patient will undergo about three or four Moxi treatments at first, then come back for maintenance sessions as needed.
