BENEFITS

The Benefits of MOXI™ Laser

MOXI™ is the missing link in our range of lasers, and adds a whole new element to what we can do for your skin, and is the perfect universal laser for most skin types. No more waiting for Summer to be over before you can book in laser treatments, MOXI™ is safe for your skin all year-round (including active tans). A great laser treatment to address the following concerns:

  • Uneven pigmentation
  • Tone and texture
  • Light sun damage and skin aging
  • Rejuvenation – stave off the visible signs of aging before they appear.
  • Long-term maintenance – extend the results of more aggressive laser & light procedures and maintain the appearance of healthy skin over the long term.

MOXI™ is also a fantastic treatment for people who are new to laser treatments, as the procedure is fairly mild and has a very short downtime—back to your regular daily life in 24 hours!

Frequently Asked Questions

Who is a candidate for MOXI laser resurfacing?
+
-

While MOXI is absolutely custom-built to treat most skin types, at all times of the year, there are some groups of patients who may find MOXI the ideal treatment:

  • Younger Age Groups: Those looking to treat the early signs of aging, and start their laser treatment journey. MOXI is a good entry-point, with a gentle treatment procedure and no downtime.
  • Maintenance: Those who receive other laser treatments, such as HALO, and are looking to maintain their results from deeper treatments throughout the year.
  • Active Individuals: If hiking, biking, or kitesurfing is your favourite hobby, then MOXI is for you. Perfect for those who enjoy spending time in the sun, but still want laser treatments.
  • Melasma Patients: Help keep the signs of melasma under control all year-round.

Depending on the concerns that you are wanting to target, other laser treatments may be more effective in treating these conditions with MOXI being reserved for later maintenance. All patients who wish to book an appointment for treatment will have a complimentary skin consultation prior. Our medical aestheticians will ensure that your treatment plan is tailor made to your skin, and will address not only your conditions, but will take your lifestyle and personal needs into consideration as well.

How does MOXI laser work?
+
-

MOXI uses a non-ablative laser, meaning that it doesn’t resurface the skin like other lasers (HALO, ProFractional, TRL). This is what makes MOXI the perfect year-round treatment for most skin types. MOXI works by heating up the tissue underneath the dermis to stimulate collagen without touching the surface.

How is MOXI laser performed?
+
-

When you arrive for your MOXI laser session, a topical anesthetic will be applied to the entire treatment area to numb the skin. Once the treatment begins, the MOXI laser handpiece is rolled over your skin, sending its non-ablative wavelengths to the bottom layers of the skin and tissue to stimulate collagen from within.

What should I expect with a MOXI laser treatment?
+
-

Immediately after the treatment, it will feel and look as if you have a mild sunburn feeling for approximately one hour.

The next day you will experience some mild pink flushed skin, which is easily covered with mineral makeup. Your skin will feel hot, but shouldn’t be uncomfortable or painful.

From day 3 onwards, your skin will transition to a very dry texture for approximately 5 days (other people generally won’t even notice it). By the end of this one-week period, your skin will feel smoother, and you will notice a healthy glow.

While you’ll definitely see improvements after your first treatment, we often recommend 3-6 sessions, spaced every 4 weeks for the best results. We offer packages of x3 MOXIs. Your treatment provider will be able to suggest the best course of action with MOXI, and will suggest how many treatments are ideal to achieve your results.

I went and saw Sonya for Moxi, she was patient and very professional. She made the experience easy and painless. The result after just one treatment were exactly what i wanted! My skin was glowing, looked completely refreshed post-summer, and it even helped my tone and melasma. Highly recommend.

Such amazingly friendly, non-pushy staff. I felt like a princess during my consult, and my follow up. But the comments I received on my 50th/wedding of how good I looked (Moxi-treatment) made me feel like a queen! Thank you Suzanne and 8 West! Will see you again!

The MOXI treatment is incredible. I’ve gotten so many compliments and I’m so happy definitely worth the money - I barely wear make up now. Recovery time was only 5 days I had my treatment on a Wednesday and went to a baby shower on a Sunday. I highly recommend!
