Are all those hours spent soaking up the sun leaving their mark on your skin? Maybe you have a few new brown spots on your cheeks, freckles on your chest, or faint creases around your eyes that remain after you smile. It’s time to hit the reset button—any time of year—with gentle, effective MOXI laser skin revitalization at La Jolla Cosmetic Surgery Centre & Medical Spa.
What is the MOXI laser?
MOXI is a mild, non-ablative fractional laser. What does that mean? Instead of harming the outer surface of the skin like ablative lasers, MOXI delivers thousands of tiny beams of heat into the skin without damaging the surface. The heat breaks up pigment and causes the body to create fresh, new cells.
What does MOXI treat?
MOXI is safe for all skin types on the face, neck, chest, arms, and hands. It is great for treating:
- Brown spots, freckles, and other excess pigmentation
- Uneven skin tone and texture
- Light sun damage and skin aging
If you haven’t noticed signs of sun damage or aging yet, MOXI treatments prevent them from showing up in the first place, called pre-juvenation. MOXI also helps you maintain improvements from more aggressive laser and light treatments like Contour TRL or Halo® laser.
Does it get better than that?
Actually, yes, it can! We often combine MOXI with BroadBand Light (BBL) treatments to level up each treatment’s benefits. MOXI improves the surface tone and texture of the skin, while BBL corrects redness, and excess brown pigment.
What happens during a MOXI treatment?
After consulting with one of our experienced laser specialists, you’ll be guided to our treatment room and settle into a comfy chair. Numbing cream will be applied prior to your treatment. PRO-NOX™ is an optional add-on that quickly eases any jitters.
MOXI has 3 energy settings, so your practitioner will adjust its strength to your unique needs and cosmetic goals. The treatment takes just 15 to 30 minutes to complete. Treated skin will be warm and pink for a few hours. Sunscreen and makeup can be applied as soon as the next day.
Enjoy pain-free BBL treatments with add-on option PRO-NOX™
Every patient deserves a comfortable experience, so we now offer an add-on option to use PRO-NOX™ during laser treatments and other medical spa services at LJC.
What is PRO-NOX™?
PRO-NOX™ is a self-administered nitrous oxide (laughing gas) system that allows you to be in full control of your comfort. If at any point you feel you need something to take the edge off, simply breathe through the PRO-NOX™ mouthpiece for instant relief from pain and anxiety.
Unlike oral pain medication, PRO-NOX™ takes effect in seconds, but these effects wear off minutes after your treatment, leaving no trace of the chemical in your body. You can safely drive and return to your normal routine without worrying about side effects.
Ask us about adding PRO-NOX™ to your treatment at your consultation, or contact us for more information!
How many MOXI treatments will I need?
We recommend a series of 3 treatments spaced about four weeks apart.
