Moxi in Indianapolis, Indiana
What Is the Moxi Laser Treatment?
Moxi is a fractional laser developed by Sciton. Moxi uses a non-ablative laser, 1927m wavelength, to deliver small, microscopic injuries or ‘mends’ to the superficial layers of the skin. These tiny mends trigger your body’s natural healing process. As your body begins to heal, collagen and elastin fibers are stimulated, resulting in healthier, firmer, and more radiant skin.
What Areas Can Be Treated with Moxi?
What Are the Benefits of Moxi?

- Moxi treatments can be done year around.
What Can I Expect After My Moxi Treatment?
After your Moxi treatment is completed, you can expect some redness and small micro dots called mends. These mends are the tiny ‘injuries’ that the laser creates. As the mends begin to heal, they start to darken in color. These typically slough off at day 3-5, reveling fresh, healthier skin underneath. Makeup can be applied 24 hours after a Moxi treatment. You should be diligent about wearing moisturizer and sunscreen during the healing process. There is less photosensitivity created with this innovative technology, but it is recommended to avoid sun exposure to the treated area for 2 weeks.
Am I a Good Candidate for Moxi?
Moxi is generally a safe and effective treatment for mostly everyone. Moxi is safe for all skin types. Moxi is recommended for a wide age range of around 20 to 60 years old. If you have a history of skin cancer, are pregnant or breastfeeding, or have an autoimmune disorder, you might not be a good candidate for Moxi. Patients that are smokers, high alcohol consumers, or sun exposure may need to make lifestyle changes prior, to get the best results from a Moxi treatment.
