Combination Therapy Using Moxi Laser and Radiofrequency Microneedling


The era of a standardized approach to aesthetics is becoming a thing of the past. An innovative strategy has surfaced, catering to many skin issues while optimizing patient results, reducing recovery duration, and making the process more time efficient.


This innovative approach, known as stackable treatments, has been introduced as a groundbreaking solution. This concept was introduced by Dr. Julius Few, a distinguished board-certified plastic surgeon and the founder of The Few Institute of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery in Chicago.


Stackable treatments combine different non-surgical procedures such as laser and light-based therapies, peels, injectables, ultrasound technology, and advanced skincare. These treatments target the three key aspects of aging skin: wrinkles, loss of volume, and skin laxity, leading to remarkable results.


Leading this movement are two pioneering procedures: Sciton’s Moxi™ laser and radiofrequency microneedling. Together, they have displayed notable improvements in overall skin health.



What is Moxi?

Moxi is a non-ablative fractionated laser, which means it targets the skin without destroying its top layer, stimulating the skin to produce more collagen, and thereby improving its appearance. Non-ablative lasers are generally known for having a shorter downtime and fewer risks than ablative lasers.


How does the Moxi laser work?

Unlike traditional resurfacing lasers, which affect the entire skin surface, fractional lasers like Moxi target only a fraction of the skin, leaving the surrounding tissues intact. This speeds up healing and reduces downtime. The controlled injuries from the laser encourage the skin to produce new collagen, which improves the texture, tone, and elasticity of the skin.


What are the benefits of Moxi?

  • Reduction in fine lines and wrinkles.

  • Improvement in skin texture and tone.

  • Reduction in pigmentation and age spots.

  • Smaller pores.

  • Reduction in scars, including acne scars.

  • General skin rejuvenation for a more youthful appearance.




How long does the Moxi treatment take?

The actual duration of a Moxi laser treatment can vary depending on the specific area being treated. Generally, the treatment can take 15 minutes to an hour. However, this doesn't account for the pre-treatment preparation, which most often includes numbing the skin.


What is Radio Frequency (RF) Microneedling?

RF microneedling is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure involving the creation of micro-punctures in the skin to address issues like scars, acne, and wrinkles.


How does RF Microneedling work?

This procedure involves using a device with fine needles to create thousands of tiny, invisible puncture wounds in the top layer of the skin. This action stimulates the body's natural wound-healing process, resulting in an increase in collagen and elastin production. The needles penetrate the skin and deliver RF energy deep into the dermis. The RF energy heats the underlying layers of the skin, causing further collagen and elastin production.


What are the benefits of RF Microneedling?

  • Tightening of sagging skin.

  • Reduction in fine lines and wrinkles.

  • Improvement in skin texture and tone.

  • Reduction in pigmentation and age spots.

  • Smaller pores.

  • Reduction in scars and stretch marks.


How long does the RF Microneedling treatment take?

Similar to the Moxi laser, the length of a RF Microneedling treatment depends on the area being treated. On average, the treatment itself takes between 30 minutes to an hour. Additional time is typically needed for numbing before the treatment.





Combining Moxi Laser and Radiofrequency microneedling

Moxi laser and RF microneedling treatments complement each other effectively due to their focus on different skin layers. Moxi targets the surface layers to enhance skin tone, texture, pigment irregularities, sun damage, and minor scarring. In contrast, RF microneedling penetrates deeper, promoting skin tightening and contouring and addressing concerns like enlarged pores, skin laxity, and deeper scars.


Bringing Together Moxi with Microneedling Treatments

The combination of Moxi and microneedling introduces a new era in aesthetics, offering improved patient outcomes and benefits that might not be achievable through a single approach. As we move forward, the emphasis on comprehensive solutions via layered treatments will continue to grow in importance.
