What is Moxi laser treatment?
Moxi is a non-ablative fractionated laser that can be used to improve the early appearance of sun damage and signs of ageing. It is a gentle treatment which makes it ideal for regular skin maintenance in patients of any age. There’s minimal downtime and recovery, with simple post-treatment advise to stay out of the sun and wear SPF. One of the best things about it is it can be used on any skin type all year round. A series of treatments is ideal to see best results, and then maintenance treatments help keep skin looking refreshed.
How does the Moxi laser work?
Moxi is a fractionated laser which can renew and refresh the skin, improving tone and texture. It uses laser energy to create tiny wounds in the skin but, rather than damaging the entire skin surface, it leaves little gaps of undamaged skin in between, which means there is minimal downtime. This stimulates the body’s wound healing response, which kick-starts the repair process in the skin, replacing the damaged cells with new healthy ones.
Who makes the Moxi laser?
Moxi is made by Sciton, a US-based company which was created to provide advanced lasers and light sources to the aesthetic medical markets.
Is Moxi laser treatment safe?
Moxi is safe and effective for all skin types, all year round.
Is Moxi painful?
The treatment is comfortable and far less painful than other laser treatments. Depending on the level of treatment you need, you may need aesthetic numbing cream in advance of the treatment, although some patients can tolerate lower level treatments without numbing.
How much does Moxi treatment cost?
Treatment costs will always vary depending on how many treatments you need, and the area you live in, but a ballpark figure would be £400-500 for a treatment.
Does Moxi laser treatment have side effects?
Moxi is a very safe treatment that doesn’t have many risks or side effects. You may experience a little bit of redness and the feeling of having a sunburn immediately after your treatment. The skin can also feel a little bit rough afterwards for a few days. Make-up can be worn the day following a treatment.
Does Moxi have possible complications?
There are very few risks associated with Moxi, however, like any treatment which uses heat energy, it can potentially cause something called post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. This is very rare.
