From polishing skin to improving pigment, there’s a lot to love about Moxi.
Not to mention, it’s now available at Skin Pharm Nashville! Our clinical trainer and physician assistant Lauren Zaucha is answering your frequently asked questions about Moxi. Read on to learn all about this gentle skin resurfacing treatment!
Yes! The non-ablative 1927nm wavelength targets water within the skin, making it safe and gentle on all skin tones and types. While Moxi is safe on tanned skin, we recommend avoiding excessive sun exposure two weeks prior to treatment.
What does it feel like?
You might feel a mild tingling or pricking sensation, but Moxi doesn’t hurt. We’ll apply topical numbing cream before your treatment to make sure you’re as comfortable as possible.
What’s the downtime like?
Moxi requires minimal downtime. Your skin may be red and feel warm immediately following treatment, but this usually subsides within 24-48 hours.
When will I see results?
After a few days, treated pigment will appear darker and rough in texture. This should slough off within 3-5 days to reveal renewed skin beneath. You’ll see results within about a week, but we recommend three treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart for best results.
Are there any side effects?
Your skin may feel warm and appear red immediately after treatment, but this should subside within 24-48 hours.
How should I prep for my treatment?
Avoid any photosensitive-causing medications 2 weeks prior to treatment, as well as excessive sun exposure. And, as always, come with clean skin!
Can I stack Moxi with other treatments?
Yes! Moxi can be stacked with Botox/Dysport, lip filler, a BBL photofacial, microneedling and PRP.
I’m pregnant or breastfeeding. Can I get Moxi?
