The MOXI Laser
The MOXI Laser is a non-ablative treatment that gently resurfaces the skin. It is an effective treatment option for those who want to brighten their skin, lighten dark spots and other forms of melasma or hyperpigmentation, and refresh their complexions overall. Whether you have had a bad experience with lasers in the past, have never experienced a laser treatment before, or are looking for a way to refresh your skin, the MOXI laser is a perfect option.
What It Treats
The MOXI treatment can address various problematic skin conditions, but it’s also designed for patients who want to focus on prevention and maintain healthy skin year-round. Specifically, this unique and effective resurfacing treatment can address the different signs of aging, pigmentation changes, sun damage, uneven skin texture, uneven skin tone, and dull skin. We can use it to perfect the skin on the face and the body, including the following areas:
An Effective Melasma Treatment
While the MOXI Laser can address many different skin imperfections and concerns, it’s an excellent treatment for melasma. At Aspire Aesthetics, some of our team have personally experienced melasma, so we know how frustrating and stubborn this particular skin condition can be. That’s why we offer the MOXI laser to provide a powerful and effective way to lighten dark spots and help treat and improve the appearance of melasma.
What Causes Skin Discoloration?
There are many different conditions and factors that cause melasma. Melasma is a form of hyperpigmentation that can appear during pregnancy, also known as the pregnancy mask. It also can result from excessive sun exposure and genetic predetermination.
Hormonal fluctuations due to birth control pills, hormone treatments, and the aging process can also contribute to the formation of this condition. It’s also often a side effect of certain medications, skin care products, or other environmental factors.
Treating Discoloration With Topical Products
If you’re one of the many men and women who suffer from melasma, you’ve probably invested in more than one topical product in an attempt to treat it. There are professional-grade products, DIY at-home masks, and many other solutions that promise to eliminate discoloration from the skin. Still, few are successful, and if they are, they take months to deliver noticeable results.
The good news is that the MOXI Laser can help treat melasma in as little as an eight to twelve-minute session. You’ll see visible improvements in the appearance of your skin after treatment, and those dark spots will continue to lighten with every treatment you schedule.
Frequently Asked Questions
What Happens During the Treatments?
We’ll cleanse your skin and apply the topical numbing cream when you arrive for your treatment. Once the treatment begins, the technician will hold the handpiece on your skin and move it across your treatment area. You’ll feel a warming sensation during the treatment as the device uses that heat energy to heat the tissue, increasing collagen and elastin production to combat multiple skin concerns.
How Long Do Treatments Take?
Treatment with the MOXI can take anywhere from 15 to 90 minutes to complete; treatment time depends on the areas you want to treat, the size, and whether you want to address multiple concerns during your treatment. Once we create your treatment plan, we can give you details about how long you can expect your appointment to take.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
Patients who schedule and undergo this treatment can expect results after just one session, but the best results appear after three to four treatments with a few weeks between each. Depending on the severity of your skin condition, you may benefit from more treatment sessions, but we will make recommendations in your treatment plan so that you know what it will take to achieve your goal skin.
Is There Any Downtime?
After your treatment, you won’t have to plan around significant downtime. Typically, downtime ranges from two to eight hours, during which patients will simply need to take extra care of their skin, avoid sun exposure, and use the right topical products as directed. For the first 24 hours, you’ll need to be proactive about using physical sunscreen to protect your skin.
When cleansing, choose a gentle product that will not irritate your skin and temporally discontinue the use of harsh exfoliating topical products. You can safely apply makeup 24 hours after your treatment.
When Will I See the Results?
The best results become evident within four to five days of treatment. You’ll see continuous improvement in your skin after each treatment you schedule, and the best results will appear after you complete your treatment plan.
Is It Painful?
MOXI Laser treatments are painless because we apply a topical numbing solution before beginning the treatment process.
