If you’ve never experienced a laser treatment, choosing between the different options may feel overwhelming. However, we want to introduce you to a unique laser treatment unlike anything you’ve heard about or experienced. At our Tarola Plastic Surgery locations in Hendersonville and Murfreesboro, TN, we offer the MOXI Laser. This treatment improves skin health, combats and prevents aging, and helps you achieve a vibrant and healthy-looking complexion.
The MOXI Laser
MOXI is a laser treatment by Sciton that uses a fractionated wavelength device to deliver a quick and effective skin rejuvenating treatment. This 1927nm laser delivers a safe and customizable treatment process. Unlike many similar treatments, this one doesn’t require a topical anesthetic before treatment. Instead, the painless treatment will deliver immediate results that will continue to improve after completing your recommended treatment plan.
Most patients benefit from a series of three to four sessions, and patients with all different skin types and tones can safely schedule treatments and achieve results. Patients looking to treat specific skin concerns or simply refresh and brighten the skin on their face or body can begin a treatment plan to improve their skin.
About the Treatment
MOXI treatments take anywhere from 15 to 90 minutes to complete based on the number of areas you want to address and your specific skin concerns. You may see immediate results after your first treatment, but the best results appear within four to five days of your appointment.
While there is little to no downtime, you will need to care for your skin post-treatment by avoiding excess sun exposure, wearing sunscreen daily, and following all of the post-treatment care directions. Doing so will ensure that you achieve beautiful results.
What It Treats
When most people think of laser treatments, they think of devices designed to improve the complexion, and while this device is most commonly used on the face, we can also use it to perfect the skin on the body. It can treat different skin concerns on the neck, chest, hands, legs, and arms. This rejuvenation treatment will enhance overall skin health, but it can also address some of the most common problematic skin concerns.
Pigmentation and Sun Damage
Hyperpigmentation and sun damage results from different factors but can affect patients of all ages. Genetics, hormonal fluctuations, environmental factors, and lifestyle choices can all lead to different forms of hyperpigmentation on the skin.
Additionally, years spent in the sun without protective sunscreen can lead to visible sun damage as you age, which in turn, can affect your confidence in your appearance. We can use this treatment to help brighten the skin, eliminate or reduce the appearance of pigmented spots, and correct sun-damaged skin.
Uneven Skin Tone
If you have an uneven tone defined by dark spots, melasma, or other forms of hyperpigmentation, we can use this treatment to help treat and correct your skin concerns. This treatment can effectively create a more uniform skin tone by refreshing the skin with a gentle treatment process that promotes healthy collagen growth, increased cellular turnover, and skin resurfacing.
Poor Skin Texture
Un-exfoliated skin can create the appearance of an uneven skin texture, as can environmental factors and lifestyle choices. This treatment can also help promote and improve skin texture by creating tiny wounds in the skin that the body responds to with increased collagen production. If you have rough spots on your skin or a generally uneven skin texture, we can target this treatment to address your concerns.
Skin laxity results from the aging process, but on a technical level, it’s caused by decreased collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid production, leading to thinner, weaker skin. This treatment stimulates natural collagen and elastin growth in the deeper layers of the skin to treat and correct skin laxity.
Skin laxity can affect the face and the body, but we can use MOXI treatments to strengthen the skin’s structure to help you achieve younger, firmer, and healthier skin.
The Early Signs of Aging
Many people don’t seek out professional skincare treatments until the signs of aging have become so severe and noticeable that they begin to affect their confidence in their appearance. This laser treatment can help such patients reverse the signs of aging, but it’s also the perfect treatment for younger patients who want to begin preventative treatments to fight against aging early on.
Investing in your skin at the first signs of aging, or even before you notice lines, wrinkles, and skin laxity, by scheduling this treatment is preventative skincare at its finest. Doing so can help you ward off and even reverse the early signs of early aging while also targeting other skin concerns. This device is a preventative form of rejuvenation and can help younger patients maintain healthy and youthful skin long-term.
Am I a Candidate?
Patients with all skin types, including darker skin, can safely schedule this treatment to achieve radiant skin. Whether you have specific skin concerns that you want to address or you want to refresh your complexion, we can use this treatment to combat aging and imperfections or prepare your skin for a special event.
Those who want to refresh and rejuvenate their skin without downtime make good candidates for this treatment, as do those who are looking for a gentle introduction into the world of professional skin care treatments. Achieving a beautiful complexion is easier than ever thanks to this effective and gentle skin rejuvenating treatment, and we can design a treatment plan that helps you achieve beautiful, healthy, and wrinkle-free skin.
Rejuvenate Your Skin
The MOXI laser is the perfect place to start if you want to learn more about this process and add a laser treatment to your skincare routine. Plus, we also offer Botox treatments that can help enhance your results and target and temporarily treat expression lines at the source so you can have the best of both worlds: healthy and smooth skin.
