Traditional Laser Resurfacing VS. Fractional Laser Resurfacing

Laser resurfacing can improve your skin’s tone, texture, and overall health by stimulating collagen and elastin production. Collagen and elastin are vital proteins within our skin that give it volume and structure. The natural aging process and premature aging due to environmental factors, like sun exposure, damage collagen, and elastin, thus weakening our skin’s support structure. Laser resurfacing causes a controlled wound to the skin that dramatically expedites collagen and elastin production to rebuild skin’s volume and structure matrix. Some laser procedures, such as ProFractional™, do this very deeply and with extended downtime. Fractionated lasers like MOXI™ offer a more gentle and comfortable approach. These lasers disperse thousands of tiny energy beams into the skin one treatment area at a time. This method allows your skin to heal around each micro thermal injury instead of an entire ablated wound all at once. As a result, comfort is heightened, and downtime is decreased.

Before and afterWhat are the Benefits of MOXI™?

MOXI™ is incredibly versatile and offers a wide range of benefits. Not only is it a wonderful way to gently rejuvenate your skin, but it is also a rising star in the “pre-juvenation” trend that encourages patients to maintain their skin BEFORE the visible signs of aging set in.

Other benefits of MOXI™ include:

  • Improvements in skin texture & tone
  • Lighten and/or remove uneven pigmentation
  • Little to no downtime
  • Repairs and rejuvenates sun-damaged skin
  • Safe for all skin types
  • Safe to perform all year round when an active tan is absent and SPF utilized

Who are the best candidates for MOXI™?

MOXI™ is an ideal treatment for patients who don’t want extended downtime after their laser service and younger patients who are just beginning their skin rejuvenation and maintenance journey. In addition, MOXI™ is a fast “lunchtime procedure” and can even be combined with other therapies, like BBL®, for enhanced results. So, if you have a busy social or work schedule but still want the improvements seen with laser resurfacing, MOXI™ may be a fantastic option for you!

When Do I See Results After MOXI™?

Your recovery after MOXI™ is rapid. Expect some mild swelling and redness for the first few hours after your treatment. It is encouraged that you do not wear makeup for 24 hours after your MOXI™ treatment or any other topicals unless recommended to you by your Advanced Practice Esthetician. Your skin may feel slightly tight and rough for the first week as your body regenerates fresh, healthy skin. However, by week two, your overall complexion will take on a clearer, brighter, and more youthful-looking glow!
