Luxurious, Balanced Skin is Within Reach

Uneven tone, texture, and pigmentation are all familiar skin vexations. These can be due to the effects of the sun, past breakouts and acne, and the aging process. If you are looking for a solution to these concerns that is more powerful than a cream or serum but still gentle and non-invasive, our Grand Rapids Sciton Moxi Laser is the solution for you. Used to treat unevenness, sun damage, and wrinkles, it is also considered "pre-juvenation," meaning that it can combat the signs of aging before they ever start by reinvigorating your skin to repair itself.

What is Sciton Moxi Laser?

The Moxi uses a gentle, non-ablative laser to create microscopic channels, or micro-coagulation zones, in the skin to stimulate a collagen reaction, resulting in improved texture and appearance. Your provider can also customize the equipment settings to treat issues that are either closer to the surface or deeper down in the skin.

Improvement in skin tone and texture, along with the reversal of the first glimpses of aging, can be achieved with the Sciton Moxi Laser. You can enjoy your skin feeling smooth and flawless, all with a gentle treatment and no downtime.

Watch as your complexion benefits from:

  • Improved skin texture
  • More even skin tone
  • "Pre-juvenation"
  • Lessening of acne scars and blemishes
  • Softening of fine lines and wrinkles

Combining Sciton Maxi Laser With Other Treatments

Since Sciton Moxi Laser treatment is so gentle and effective at resurfacing, it can easily be used in tandem with other procedures like the BBL Hero to achieve a comprehensive approach to skin rejuvenation.

While the Moxi and the BBL have some overlap, they each specialize in a different set of skin corrections. Everyone is unique, and everyone has unique complexions. Combining multiple laser skin resurfacing or BBL treatments can open up the options for your ideal result.

Ideal Candidates

Am I a candidate for Sciton Moxi Laser?

This treatment option is an excellent choice for all skin tones. It is also a wonderful maintenance option. If you've had other, more intensive laser treatments, a Moxi treatment can help extend the benefits of other procedures in a gentler, often quicker manner. If you are pregnant, breastfeeding, or have active acne, this may not be the ideal treatment for you at this time.

Great candidates for Sciton Moxi laser treatment include almost anyone dealing with:

  • Mild sun damage
  • Scarring; either acne or other scars
  • Uneven pigmentation
  • Rough or uneven texture
  • Early aging signs
  • These issues in areas other than the face, including the back, chest, and extremities

Consultation and Preparation

At your consultation for Sciton Moxi Laser Grand Rapids aestheticians at The Bengtson Center will discuss your skin rejuvenation goals and which laser treatment or combination of lasers may be best for you.

Before your appointment, you will need to use sunscreen and limit sun exposure as much as possible. In addition, you will need to pause the use of sunless tanners and retinol products.

Sciton Moxi LaserProcedure

During the procedure, the provider will glide the laser tool across your skin and provide cool airflow to ease any heat or prickling sensations. Numbing cream is typically not used for Moxi treatment, but this can be assessed at the time of treatment. Many patients will begin to see results within 3-5 days.

Recovery, Results, and Aftercare

After the procedure, you will receive specific instructions on skin care and gentle moisturizing creams to use for several days. Avoiding the sun is one of the most important things to adhere to during the healing process.

Results of treatment should begin to appear within a week, with fully realized results at approximately 3 months. To continue the stimulation of collagen, most patients undergo treatment every 3 to 4 months.
