Moxi Laser Treatment

what is moxi treatment

Moxi Laser Treatment

MOXI technology is a type of laser therapy utilised in aesthetic medicine to address various skin concerns. It delivers noticeable results in just a few treatments, targeting conditions such as minor scars, melasma, uneven texture, and initial signs of ageing. 

As a non-ablative treatment, Moxi allows you to return to your daily activities almost immediately. This skin procedure is included in Everyderm’s Platinum and Diamond subscription plans.

About Moxi laser treatment

Moxi treatment is a renowned next-generation laser therapy based on MOXI™ technology developed by Sciton.

Lately, it has become a popular “prejuvenation” method—a preventive treatment for ageing. It is also highly favoured by people with more aged skin because of its effectiveness in correcting uneven pigmentation and facilitating skin rejuvenation.

In skin care, there are two main types of laser technology—ablative and non-ablative.

Ablative lasers remove the top layer of the skin. This procedure is considered more invasive: you see dramatic results after the first session, but your skin needs more time to recover afterwards.

Non-ablative lasers are minimally invasive. They emit heat that reaches the underlying skin tissue to spur collagen production almost without damaging the skin surface.

Moxi uses non-ablative laser energy to penetrate the deep skin layers with a wavelength of light set at 1927 nm (nanometres). It achieves considerable results in several sessions without causing aggressive dermal and epidermal injuries.

Who is a candidate for Moxi laser treatment?

The Sciton Moxi laser treatment boosts overall skin health by targeting a range of skin concerns.

who is a candidate for Moxi's treatment

A primary candidate for this treatment will have one or more of the following concerns:

Early signs of ageing. Young people who wish to slow down the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Pigmentation issues. Those with uneven texture, melasma, or other similar concerns who wish to have smoother skin texture and more even skin tone.

Minor scars. Individuals looking for ways to heal scars from acne or other minor injuries.

Signs of sun damage. People with skin discolouration caused by mild sunburn, dark spots, or other UV-induced imperfections.

Men frequently choose Moxi as part of their skincare journey. This is due to the rapid recovery and desire of male patients to avoid skin pinkness typical following stronger, ablative resurfacing laser treatments.

Moxi is suitable for all Fitzpatrick skin types:

Types I-III. The non-ablative laser repairs sun-damaged skin, reducing health risks for people who are less resistant to UV damage.

Types IV-VI. The procedure helps individuals who are prone to hyperpigmentation by providing a more even skin tone and a smoother texture.

Even those with naturally balanced skin tone and texture may be affected by skin issues over time, which may make it challenging to maintain healthy, radiant skin. Therefore, this procedure can benefit people with lighter and darker skin tones and anyone looking to enhance their skin’s appearance.

Moxi technology in Everyderm’s skin treatments

We use the Moxi laser in our facial and skin resurfacing treatments, targeting the face, neck, chest, and hands. Moxi can also be used in other body parts outside of the Everyderm membership plans.

Skin resurfacing laser treatments are split into three levels, according to the depth of laser penetration and intensity of the procedure. With each level, the medical technologies and protocols we use to penetrate skin layers differ.

The Moxi laser treatment is a level-one procedure. A handpiece scans across the treated area and gently delivers non-ablative laser pulses to create micro-coagulation zones that induce your body’s natural wound-healing process. This procedure requires minimal downtime.

For several days after the treatment, you may notice small micro dots—”mends”—that are simply leftovers from where the laser came in contact with your skin. New cells emerge as these micro zones heal, resulting in smoother, more vibrant skin

At levels 2 and 3, fractional carbon dioxide (CO2) lasers—targeted beams of light—remove the surface skin layer. This procedure is more effective for deeper rejuvenation and requires a longer downtime period.

CO2 and Moxi treatments can be used as part of a comprehensive anti-ageing skin strategy. For example, a person who wants to go through an all-encompassing skincare regimen starts at level 2 or 3 and continues with regular maintenance treatments at level 1.

At Everyderm, we combine Moxi with Broadband Light (BBL) therapy, which targets the underlying skin layers using a broader light spectrum. These technologies complement each other and produce even more satisfying results when combined.

Excited to see where Moxi can take you? Here are several examples of the treatment’s results.

What you should know: considerations and advice

You can expect to find the Moxi treatment tolerable and perhaps even comfortable because of the numbing cream we use as a topical anaesthesia. During the procedure, you may experience a sensation of gentle warmth.

One of the positives for people with an active lifestyle is the minimal downtime.

After treatment, we advise you to:

Avoid sun exposure for a day and apply only vaseline.

Do not wear makeup for 24 hours.

Apply moisturiser and physical sunscreen after 24 hours.

During the first few days after the procedure, several things may happen:

Your skin may appear red during the first day after the treatment

You may also see small brown dots where the laser was applied

The brown spots darken over several days; during that time, your skin can feel like sandpaper.

Around the fifth day, the dots or “MENDs” gently slough off, exposing a fresh layer of renewed skin.

We also recommend that you wash your skin with a mild cleanser in the morning and night as a part of your skincare routine.

Alternative technologies and methods

When it comes to rejuvenating your skin, there is Moxi, and there are other approaches that produce similar outcomes.

Here are some of them:

Medical Microneedling Procedure

Ablative lasers

Intense-heat lasers that cause controlled damage to remove the outer skin layer.

Highly effective for severe skin issues, such as acne, deep wrinkles, and significant sun damage.

Require numbing cream application or nerve blocks and lead to longer downtime.

Technology BBL - Procedure

Broadband light (BBL)

Pulses of a broad-spectrum light delivered to the skin, reducing pigmentation and redness and improving tone and other skin imperfections.

Most effective for surface-level issues.

Can be combined with Moxi for even better results.

Procedure renewing chemical peels on woman's face

Chemical peels

Chemical solutions that exfoliate and remove damaged outer layers of the skin.

Used in treating fine lines, pigmentation, and surface texture issues.

Variations in intensity – from mild to deep peels, with the latter requiring a longer recovery period.

The procedure: step by step

A Moxi treatment at Everyderm consists of four steps:

Thorough skin cleansing. We carefully clean your skin to remove dirt, oil, or makeup.

Application of numbing cream. To minimise discomfort during the procedure, we apply a topical anaesthetic to the skin that takes 20-30 minutes to take effect.

Moxi laser resurfacing. For the next 10-15 minutes, we treat the target areas using the Moxi handpiece that delivers non-ablative laser energy to the skin.

Skin cooling with CryoAir and application of barrier gel. After the laser treatment, we use super-cooled air to soothe and reduce any heat sensation, and we apply barrier gel to protect the skin and aid the healing process.

Recommended frequency

Depending on your skin goals and following skin imaging, we may recommend an initial course of three Moxi laser treatments and then follow up with maintenance treatments every few months.

When you first begin your treatment, we will target your main concerns in 3–4 sessions spaced 4–5 weeks apart. Expect about a day of downtime and noticeable results about a week later.

Afterwards, maintenance treatments may be performed every 3–6 months following your skin regime. For younger patients, a broader maintenance schedule, such as one treatment every 6–12 months, may be applicable.
