Contact us to learn more about MOXI laser skin resurfacing in Plymouth, MN, and read on for how the MOXI fractionated laser helps you glow up as you show up.
How does the MOXI laser system function?
From the same Sciton technology family as BBL, Silk and HALO, MOXI is a fractionated wavelength laser designed for all patient types.
The MOXI laser energy provides preventative anti-aging and corrective measures, delivering dramatic results through the fractionated 1927 nm wavelength.
As a non-ablative laser, MOXI doesn’t create open wounds in the skin. Instead, these micro-pulses of energy create microscopic, controlled damage to skin cells, which your body naturally removes and replaces with fresh, new cells.
The result? Skin that looks fresher, brighter, and better!
MOXI comfortably emits non-ablative laser energy to:
- Correct initial signs of photo damage
- Reduce pore size
- Decrease pigmentation
- Address fine lines & wrinkles
- Slow signs of aging
No matter the skin type or patient age, MOXI leaves Vively Body Science patients with glowing skin.
If you’re just beginning your skincare journey, MOXI is a great starting point. If you need a light touch-up that’s both gentle and efficient, MOXI makes a great choice. And if you need more, MOXI can be adjusted to deliver more.
Non-Ablative Laser Energy
The MOXI system offers customized levels of energy delivery depending on what you want to address.
- Slow the aging process & refresh skin
- Revitalizes aging skin & maintains recent results
- Transforms the skin for aging and pigment
- Renews vibrancy and texture
Treatment Areas for MOXI Laser Skin Resurfacing in Plymouth, MN
The MOXI Skin Laser Treatment Process
In the beginning, many patients will require a series of treatments, and then subsequent annual treatments to maintain their positive results. You’ll immediately address the signs of aging and enjoy evenly toned, radiant skin after just one treatment.
The first thing you need to do is schedule a consultation. Your Vively Body Science specialist will discuss your issues and goals. They may do a quick visual examination of your skin to determine the best treatment to give you optimal results.
Your specialist may also recommend MOXI skin laser treatment as part of a stacked or larger treatment plan. MOXI can prepare your skin to more readily respond to other treatments, amplifying and accelerating the results.
Your Vively specialist may also do a VISIA Skin Analysis in order to identify treatment areas. VISIA’s advanced technology provides detailed information about your individual facial skin characteristics that might not be apparent to the naked eye.
This powerful tool helps us design a treatment plan that will provide the best results for your skin’s specific needs!
We’ll make you comfortable, and then apply a topical numbing cream to the treatment area about 45 minutes beforehand. Just before MOXI treatment, the specialist will gently cleanse away the numbing cream.
Based on your goals and skin analysis, the specialist will program your MOXI treatment settings for optimum results. Whether it’s Level 1, 2, 3 or a customized setting, it will be the appropriate one for your concerns and skin.
As MOXI delivers non-ablative fractionated laser energy to the skin through a hand-held device, that energy promotes new cell growth. It also reduces unwanted pigmentation and improves skin tone and texture!
We recommend using a moisturizing sunscreen on the treatment area. Stay out of direct sunlight as much as possible for the first 7 days. You can wear makeup 24 hours after treatment.
Also, be gentle to your treatment areas for a few days after MOXI laser skin resurfacing in Plymouth. Wearing a hat outdoors is advisable, as is washing the areas with just water or extremely gentle cleanser.
After your treatment, we’ll give you clear instructions on how to best support your results and care for your specific treatment areas.
MOXI Laser Treatment Results
Results will vary depending on your individual goals. There is a potential for slight swelling directly after treatment. The day of your treatment your skin may be pink or red, and you may see tiny dots called “mends” from the laser. The healing process takes 3 to 5 days.
Throughout this time the micro-injuries (mends) will darken, feel slightly textured, but then they will slough off. Here’s where the glow happens as healthy skin grows from underneath.
Your Vively Body Science specialist will discuss at-home skin care as that ensures your amazing results last—and even improve—as time goes on.
MOXI Side Effects
As with all aesthetic treatments, MOXI results vary from person to person. You may experience some slight pinkness, redness, or tiny dots. Don’t worry—they’re not so prominent that they’ll make you feel uncomfortable in public! Complete skin healing should take 3 to 5 days.
After completing the recommended series of initial treatments, you will experience a noticeable improvement in your skin tone, texture, signs of aging, and overall clarity.
Who is a good candidate for MOXI?
MOXI laser skin treatment in Plymouth addresses signs of aging and pigment concerns. It also helps younger patients keep those signs from arriving in the first place.
Designed for clients of all skin tones and ages, MOXIi works great for:
- Younger patients with few age-related skin concerns yet (prejuvenation)
- Current patients looking for simple touch-ups
- Laser treatment newcomers
- Active people with busy lifestyles
- Any age with sun damage or other pigment concerns
MOXI helps men with their skincare goals too!
Depending on your analysis and your goals, you might benefit from other laser treatments. One of the benefits of MOXI is that it combines well with all other treatments as part of a start to a long-term treatment plan.

MOXI Works for Melasma, Too.
Melasma refers to a skin condition, usually on the face, that causes spots and patches to appear.
Laser therapy is a fantastic tool for many conditions, but one of the more difficult skin conditions to treat is melasma. Much knowledge and finesse must be used to appropriately treat this condition, as some melasma treatments can actually aggravate the pigment found with melasma. On some occasions, more powerful versions could actually cause more hyperpigmentation to appear.
One of the MOXI benefits is the type of laser energy used to achieve results. The non-ablative fractional laser device delivers heat beneath the skin’s surface without affecting the surrounding tissue. The gentleness of MOXI addresses the pigmentation without causing more.
How long does MOXI take?
MOXI laser skin treatment in Plymouth, MN, takes 60 to 90 minutes, although the laser is typically only a fraction of that time following the numbing process. The length of the session depends on the number of passes and density.
Can MOXI treat darker skin types?
The 1927nm laser within the MOXI handpiece only targets water, and not melanin. That means MOXI can treat all skin types, all year round.
Are there any MOXI laser side effects?
Due to the gentle power of the MOXI treatment, you’ll have few if any risks or side effects. You may experience:
- Minor redness in the treatment area
- Slight, temporary discomfort
- A mild burning sensation in the hours after your treatment, similar to a sunburn
It’s very normal for your skin to have a mildly sandpaper-like texture for up to 5 days after treatment.
Do MOXI treatments hurt?
MOXI is totally non-invasive. Some clients do, however, report feeling mild heat during treatment. The anesthetic cream used before your MOXI treatment ensures your comfort during the session.
May I use makeup to hide the redness?
We recommend that you don’t put on any makeup for the first 24 hours. After that, putting on light makeup is okay if necessary, although it’s ideal to go without makeup until the “mends”–those tiny microdots that can appear—slough off.
