MOXI™ LASER OVERVIEW

Like all lasers, Moxi delivers a concentrated beam of light of a single wavelength. The Moxi Laser is ideal for milder degrees of rejuvenation that is needed by women and men in their 20’s to early 40’s. The Moxi laser in Dubuque is designed to be non-ablative, which means that it does not directly damage the surface of the skin. Instead, the energy passes into the skin and provokes a healing response. This leads to the regeneration of collagen and elastin fibers that are lost or disorganized by early sun damage. What you will see is a smoother skin surface and better skin tone, plus some improvement in pigmentation. Because the skin’s surface is not damaged, recovery from a Moxi treatment is very quick. It is great for people with busy lifestyles.


Moxi can improve the look of your skin’s appearance, addressing:

  • fine lines and wrinkles

  • age and sunspots

  • uneven skin tone or texture

  • sun-damaged skin

  • mild to moderate acne scars

WHAT IS MOXI AND HOW DOES IT WORK?

Moxi delivers gentle micro-pulses of fractionated laser energy to the skin in order to create controlled damage to skin cells. The body’s natural response is to remove the damaged cells which contain pigment and other signs of aging, replacing the cells with fresh new cells. The result is fresh, bright-looking skin, just after your first visit.

Depending on the level of treatment provided, most people find the treatment is well tolerated. Cooling air and recommend numbing cream to help ensure your treatment is as comfortable as possible.

WHAT IS A MOXI TREATMENT LIKE?

Moxi treatments can be delivered at 3 levels of intensity. At Level 1 discomfort is relatively mild, even without topical anesthesia. Most patients with level 2 or level 3 Moxi treatments will come in at least 30 minutes before their treatment so that a numbing cream can be applied to the skin. The Faces Medspa laser technician will cleanse your skin and gently roll the device across your face as it delivers tiny bursts of energy in a pattern that leaves space between areas where the beam of energy has penetrated. The power of the energy delivered and the spacing between the tiny spots of energy will be matched by your clinician to what is appropriate for your skin. Before you know it, your treatment is complete!

WHAT IS THE MOXI RECOVERY LIKE?

For the day following your treatment your skin may appear red and depending on your level of treatment you may see the small dots called Mendz where the laser was applied. As the microzones heal, they will darken and your skin may feel rough. Between days 3-5, the Mendz will slough/fall off revealing the renewed skin beneath. Because this is a non-ablative fractionated treatment, the post-care regimen is simple. Wear a moisturizing physical sunscreen and stay out of the sun. You may wear make-up 24 hours after your treatment.

COMBINE | CORRECT | CONQUER

The combination of Moxi and BBL (broadband light photo rejuvenation) is an unbeatable treatment pairing for total body skin renewal for our Dubuque patients. Moxi improves the surface and texture of the skin, while BBL evens our areas of excess red and brown pigment. The effect of the two treatments together is truly synergistic.

LET'S CONNECT

Are you interested in addressing any of the following concerns?
  • What do neuromodulators do?
    Neuromodulators (including Botox and Dysport) relax the muscles and reduce fine lines and wrinkles in the face and neck. These treatments combat forehead lines, glabella lines ("11's" between the brows), crows feet (around the eyes), smile lines, neck lines, and other wrinkles associated with aging. They can also be used to help sculpt and lift facial features including for a nonsurgical brow lift and a nonsurgical neck lift.
  • What is the difference between BOTOX and Dysport?
    While BOTOX and Dysport both use the same substance (botulinum toxin A) and are based on the same mechanism of action, the size of the molecules in the injections are significantly different. Dysport contains smaller molecules of botulinum toxin type A than BOTOX. - Dysport can spread through your cells more easily - Dysport may begin working slightly faster than BOTOX - Results from Dysport and Botox last for a similar amount of time
  • How many units of Botox will I need? How many units of Dysport will I need?
    The amount of units needed can differ from person to person depending upon your desired outcome, the area of concern to be treated, the strength of the muscles in the area, and whether the treatment is for prevention or to treat existing fine lines and wrinkles and their severity.
  • When will I see results from Botox and Dysport?
    Most patients can expect to notice early results of Dysport between two to five days following treatment, while results from Botox may take seven to fourteen days. The degree of muscle relation can continue to evolve for about two weeks and the results last for three to four months. The longer the BOTOX treatments have been routinely performed, the more relaxed the facial wrinkles will appear over time. Results of Dysport are similar, but often with a slightly quicker onset of action.
  • How long does Botox last? How long does Dysport last?
    Results may vary based upon the dose given, as well as on muscle strength of the area and metabolism, as our bodies metabolize (or break down) the Neuromodulators over time. Treatment to maintain your results are recommend every three to four months. Using medical grade skin care products at home as part of a daily skin care regime can help to maintain your results and improve the appearance and quality of your skin.
  • Does Botox and Dysport hurt?
    Many of us are not big fans of shots, especially needles in general. However, Neuromodulators are generally quickly injected with a minimal amount of discomfort, using the smallest needle available. Many of our patients barely notice the injections.
  • Who are good candidates for BOTOX and Dysport?
    BOTOX and Dysport have been proven safe and effective for treatment of a wide variety of patient and wrinkle types, however, the earlier the treatment is started, the more favorable the results can be. Some patients are not candidates for this type of treatment and include those diagnosed with neurological conditions or disorders affecting muscle movement, history of allergy to the botulinum toxin product, or those with unrealistic expectations from the treatment. Patients who are pregnant or nursing are discouraged from undergoing treatment.

Together, these two treatments provide total body skin revitalization within minutes, and with little to no downtime.

THE SOLUTION TO PAIN AND ANXIETY DURING TREATMENTS:
PRO-NOX

Fortunately, we have a powerful tool at our disposal: an innovative sedation system called Pro-Nox that’s designed to minimize both anxiety and pain.
