How does MOXI Laser work?
MOXI is a 1927nm diode fractional non ablative laser that targets the water in the skin layer (Figure 1). It works by creating numerous microscopic areas of controlled injury in the skin, which triggers a rejuvenating wound healing process that causes the skin to generate new collagen and shed unwanted pigment. (Figure 2) This results in smoother, radiant and firmer skin. This treatment can be performed in all skin types (including darker skin tones), all year round and is safe and effective for melasma2,3.
The treatment is highly customisable and has 3 levels of intensity.
Level 1 treatment – a light “prejuvenation” treatment, suitable for a younger client (age 20-30) seeking to refresh the skin. No numbing cream is required and there is no downtime
Level 2 treatment – a moderate intensity treatment to revitalise and maintain, suitable for clients with more significant skin concerns. Numbing cream is recommended and skin will take 3-5 days to recover.
Level 3 treatment – a high intensity treatment that transforms and renew, for clients who have experienced a level 2 treatment before and are able to tolerate a longer downtime. Numbing cream is recommended and the skin will take 5-7 days to recover.
Why choose MOXI Laser?
MOXI Laser treatments are quick (~30-45minutes) and involve no to minimal downtime, which is ideal for the working professionals based around the Marina Bay Financial Center.
For those looking for even more significant results, the MOXI Laser treatment can be performed together with the BBL HERO treatment. Bay Aesthetics Clinic is amongst the first 2 clinics in Singapore to offer this combined treatment.
