In a world where the laser landscape can be overwhelming, with a myriad of treatments promising various skin-care wonders, Moxi Laser emerges as a beacon of versatility. Designed for those seeking a noninvasive yet highly effective solution, Moxi Laser unveils the secrets to timeless beauty. Here, experts explain the treatment’s distinctive features, technology and experience that set Moxi apart in the realm of skin-care innovations.

Chicago dermatologist Quenby Erickson, MD explains the unique positioning of Moxi: “While most lasers are for correcting various skin conditions, Moxi is perfect for keeping your skin young and healthy. It also happens to be great for stubborn pigment and even safe and effective for melasma.”

Rochester dermatologist Lesley Loss, MD echoes the sentiment, emphasizing its low downtime and exceptional results for those in their 30s-40s: “Moxi is a great low-downtime laser resurfacing treatment used to create a beautiful ‘glow’ or ‘polish’ to the skin. It is one of our favorite laser treatments for our patients in their 30s-40s who are looking to get rid of some early signs of aging.”

Collagen Stimulation

To demystify the magic behind Moxi, understanding its technology is crucial. Dr. Quenby Erickson elaborates on the mechanism at play: “Moxi is a fractional nonablative laser treatment designed to be a ‘prejuvenation’ treatment. Nonablative means that the laser energy creates microscopic columns of denatured collagen that stimulates the skin’s fibroblasts to produce new collagen. This ultimately improves the skin’s texture and luminosity.”

Dr. Loss adds that Moxi is the perfect treatment for improved tone and texture. “We also combine Moxi with BBL, or broadband light, to help reduce brown spots and red spots,” she says.

Embracing All Skin Types

One of the most significant advantages of Moxi Laser is its compatibility with various skin types. Dr. Erickson assures: “Moxi is safe for all skin tones.”

“It can be used on any skin type,” adds Dr. Loss. We have seen great results for our patients with brown discoloration and melasma, which is notoriously difficult to treat.”

Safety First

Before embarking on any skin-care journey, safety considerations are paramount. Dr. Erickson emphasizes the importance of professional evaluation: “Moxi treatments are very safe, but as with any laser treatment, it is important to be evaluated by a well-trained provider to ensure that you are a good candidate for the treatment.”

Dr. Loss echoes the sentiment, underlining the minimal and temporary nature of potential side effects: “Side effects are minimal and temporary, including pinkness that can last a week or more. Moxi is generally a very safe laser treatment. With any energy-based device, there is potential for burns, so do your research on who is doing your treatments!”

The Moxi Glow

What truly sets this treatment apart is the transformative experience it offers, says Dr. Erickson. “It provides a more even complexion with a refreshed glow due to the new collagen produced during the healing,” she explains. “I find that even though the results are long-lasting, many patients choose to repeat the treatment once or twice yearly because of the great results with minimal downtime.”

“If you don’t have a lot of signs of aging yet but want to keep the skin youthful, it could be done once or twice a year,” adds Dr. Loss. “If you are trying to correct something like melasma, pigmentation, or red spots, we usually recommend a series of Moxi treatments, sometimes in combo with BBL. Usually, it’s three to four treatments spaced six to eight weeks apart, and then yearly maintenance to maintain results.”
