San Francisco MOXI Laser
Often, patients want to achieve subtle skin rejuvenation as a part of their overall skincare regimen. MOXI is a “prejuvenation” laser treatment designed to do just that. A MOXI treatment is perfect for anyone who wishes to brighten and refresh their skin. If you are just starting your skin care journey, looking for a light touch up, or simply want something more without the downtime, MOXI is an ideal choice. It’s also a great option for anyone looking to maintain results after a more aggressive laser treatment. Through its use of a gentle, non-ablative fractionated wavelength laser, MOXI delivers tonal and textural improvements to your face with little to no downtime. MOXI is designed to treat wrinkles, poor skin texture, appearance of minor skin laxity, uneven complexion and the signs of sun damage.
Preparing For MOXI Laser Procedure
When coming in for a procedure, it’s best to have clean, well moisturized skin. Any makeup you have on will need to be removed prior to the procedure. Because the MOXI laser cannot tell the difference between normal pigment from a tan and abnormal pigment from too much sun, please refrain from extended sun exposure or sunless tanning creams/self-tanners for at least 3 weeks prior to your treatment. Do not use aspirin, ibuprofen, vitamin E, ginkgo and alcohol for at least 1 week before and for 2 days after treatment.

Recovery From MOXI Laser Procedure
You may experience a little burning or redness for the first 24 hours post procedure. MOXI revitalizes skin without breaking the surface, keeping the post-care regimen simple. Wear moisturizing physical sunscreen and stay out of the sun. You may wear makeup 24 hours after your treatment. A gentle cleanser and moisturizer will be recommended to protect and comfort the treated area and should be used until the skin has naturally exfoliated.
MOXI Laser Frequently Asked Questions
How many MOXI treatments will I need?
This will depend on your treatment goals and the level of correction desired. Most patients receive 3 to 4 corrective MOXI treatments, then often elect for regular maintenance treatments. Talk to your practitioner about your goals and they can advise you on the best treatment regimen.
How long does it take to see results after a MOXI treatment?
Results will vary depending on your treatment goals and the plan you set forth with your provider. You can expect improved skin texture and radiance after about a week.
Is the MOXI laser painful?
Differing levels of treatment may affect the sensations you feel during treatment, but most patients find the MOXI treatment experience very tolerable. The numbing cream prior to the procedure minimizes discomfort, and your provider may also use a cooling air device to keep you comfortable during. Simply put, this is one of the most gentle, low-pain laser treatments on the market.
Does MOXI work on darker skin tones?
Absolutely! It can treat all skin types, year-round. Since the MOXI laser isn’t as invasive as its stronger laser counterparts, it lessens the risk of hyper or hypopigmentation after treatment. Of course, if you ever have specific questions or concerns based on your skin tone, your provider will have all the training and experience to answer your additional questions.
