Moxi vs. BBL Photofacial — What’s the Difference?

Moxi vs. BBL Photofacial — What’s the Difference?

There’s a new laser treatment at Skin Pharm Nashville — Moxi is here!

So how does this new treatment compare to a BBL photofacial? While both laser treatments use the same machine and help rejuvenate the appearance of skin, there are some important differences between the two. Let’s break them down!

What is Moxi?

Moxi is a gentle, non-ablative laser treatment that resurfaces skin, reduces pigmentation, boosts collagen production and improves overall texture. Unlike other laser treatments that heat the outer layers of the skin, Moxi works by targeting water within the skin’s cells — which makes it safe for all skin types and tones.

Key benefits:

  • Gentle on the skin and safe for any complexion
  • Resurfacing properties improve overall skin texture
  • Effectively corrects pigmentation, including melasma
  • Boosts collagen production
  • A “pre-juvenation” treatment that helps smooth skin and prevent signs of aging 

Best for:

  • Melasma, pigmentation and sun damage
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Texture

Price: $700 per treatment for one treatment area; + $200 for each additional treatment area 

What is a BBL photofacial?

A BBL (BroadBand Light) photofacial uses light to treat a wide range of pigment concerns like sun spots and redness. Instead of targeting water like Moxi, a BBL photofacial targets the chromophores in cells and stimulates collagen production and natural healing processes.

Although a BBL photofacial can improve the appearance of sun and age spots, it’s not recommended for those with melasma, as heating the skin can make melasma worse.

Key benefits:

  • Customizable to treat a broad range of skin concerns
  • Improves overall skin tone
  • Boosts collagen production and stimulates cell regeneration
  • Effectively corrects more moderate, existing skin conditions

Best for:

  • Sun damage
  • Broken facial vessels
  • Rosy cheeks
  • Rosacea
  • Dullness
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Acne and surgical scars
  • Stretch marks

Price: $500 per treatment for one treatment area; + $200 per each additional treatment area

Stacking Moxi and a BBL photofacial

Still wondering which option is right for you? Here’s the TL;DR —

If you’re looking for a gentle way to treat melasma, prevent signs of aging and improve your skin’s overall texture, Moxi is right for you!

If you want to reverse set-in signs of aging, improve your overall skin tone or correct specific pigmentation issues like sun spots, redness or age spots, a BBL photofacial is the way to go.

Each treatment offers incredible benefits on its own — but stacking them yields even more comprehensive results! Together, Moxi and a BBL photofacial are the ultimate pair for addressing pigment, improving skin texture and evening skin tone. You’ll maximize the resurfacing and rejuvenating benefits of each treatment — and you’ll maximize your appointment time, too!

Get the benefits of both:

  • Improve overall skin texture
  • Even skin tone

  • Correct pigmentation concerns
  • Boost collagen production for a refreshed, rejuvenated complexion
