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. For the day following your treatment, your skin may appear red and, depending on your level of treatment, you may see the small micro dots called “mendz” where the laser was applied. As the micro zones heal, they will darken and feel rough. Between days 3 and 5, the mendz will slough off, revealing the renewed skin beneath.
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 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! Since the MOXI laser isn’t as strong or invasive as its 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.
