Get smoother, more even skin at the speed of light.

1. MOXI is the Laser for Everyone!

Unlike many ablative lasers that are only used for certain skin types and tones, the MOXI laser works for all patients. Certain more aggressive or ablative lasers, such as the HALO, only work on lighter skin tones. Designed to treat all skin types and tones, MOXI truly works for everyone. Clients looking to maintain a youthful appearance are finding success with MOXI. If you have more advanced signs of aging, talk to your laser technician about the right combination of treatments. 

2. Results Right Away

Even though the MOXI laser is gentle, you’ll notice subtle skin improvements right away. Most people see more dramatic results after a series of sessions spaced a few weeks apart. MOXI is made to correct initial signs of aging and sun damage by improving the general tone and texture of skin. Improvements can be noticed after a single treatment and continue to get better with multiple sessions. Your laser technician will discuss the right plan for you.

3. MOXI is the Perfect Introductory Laser

If you’ve ever wondered about getting laser treatments but worry about irritation or discomfort, then MOXI is for you. As a non-ablative laser, there is no wounding to the skin. It’s perfect for those looking to head off early signs of aging or prevent them from becoming more noticeable. Younger patients can take advantage of preventing further age-related skin damage and enjoy smooth, firm skin well into their later years.

4. Quick and Easy Treatment

The MOXI laser is loved by patients for its quick and easy treatment in under an hour. Termed by those in the know as a “lunchtime procedure,” it can take as little as 25 minutes to complete! If you need a quick and easy pick-me-up, the MOXI laser is a great way to squeeze in a little self-care into your busy day.

5. Little to No Downtime

MOXI is a gentle laser with little to no downtime. Because the fractional resurfacing is non-invasive, your healing time is significantly reduced. Unlike other lasers, you can get the MOXI laser year-round, too! You’ll likely be slightly pink or red up to 3 to 4 days after your treatment and can apply makeup within 24 hours. Many patients like to schedule a treatment right before an event, knowing their skin will be fresh and radiant in a short period of time. If you’ve recently done a more aggressive laser facial like HALO, keep up the results with the gentle non-ablative MOXI.

The MOXI laser facial at AW Plastic Surgery is a great way to treat minor skin concerns or prevent skin damage and signs of aging before they occur. And if you’re on a more advanced skin care plan, MOXI works well for in-between maintenance. Are you ready for a lunchtime procedure with our skincare experts in Portsmouth, NH?
