Moxi® Laser Skin Treatment
If you want to minimize early signs of aging without the downtime associated with more aggressive laser skin treatments, our med spa in Anchorage, Alaska, offers Moxi, a gentle treatment safe for all skin types and tones. With little to no downtime, Moxi is ideal for patients from Wasilla, Palmer, and surrounding areas who want to prevent or reduce the signs of aging.
What Are the Benefits of Moxi Treatments?
Besides the fact that Moxi is safe for patients of all skin types, the treatment offers several other benefits. Treatment sessions typically take less than 30 minutes, and you can return to work or other daily activities immediately after leaving FACES Med Spa. We apply a topical anesthetic to numb the treatment area so patients remain comfortable during the procedure.
Moxi is a good choice for patients seeking a:
- Maintenance procedure (as a follow-up to more aggressive laser skin resurfacing procedures)
- “Prejuvenation” treatment to delay the onset of skin aging
- Treatment that is less costly than other laser procedures
- Procedure that can be performed any time of the year
- Way to minimize melasma
Men are excellent candidates for Moxi treatments too!

How Does Moxi Work?
Moxi is a non-ablative fractional laser. That means it penetrates the skin’s surface without damaging it, delivering laser energy through micro-channels and heating the tissue below the skin. That laser energy stimulates the body’s natural healing process, which replaces damaged cells with fresh, healthy skin. The result is improved skin tone and texture, along with reversing moderate sun damage. Because the Moxi device has 3 energy settings, our providers can customize treatments to meet the needs of each patient.
Moxi—sometimes referred to as “baby Halo™”—is just one of the several laser and light-based skin rejuvenation treatments offered at our med spa. During your consultation, one of our aesthetic specialists can describe the benefits of other options that may be more suitable for your specific skin concerns. We often recommend combining Moxi with BBL™ BroadBand Light treatments to produce even better results.
Can Moxi Be Combined With Other Treatments?
Yes, patients often combine procedures with Moxi or other laser treatments to produce comprehensive anti-aging results. For example, combining injections of BOTOX® Cosmetic and dermal fillers with Moxi can reduce more severe wrinkles and improve the skin’s texture.
I have been going to the Medical Spa for several years and have been enormously pleased with how they've kept up with the latest technology and available treatments. They provide me with the information I need to make good decisions, don't keep me waiting when I arrive and always make sure I am comfortable throughout the procedures. [They] explain what [they are] doing and adjust [their] pace to fit my tolerance, if necessary. I have been quite pleased with the results I've had from the Medical Spa.D 48-year-old, skin care patient
How Long Does It Take to See Results?
It takes about a week to see initial results when your skin will appear more radiant. However, patients with more significant sun damage or discoloration will need multiple treatment sessions to produce optimal results. During the first couple of days after treatment, it’s normal to see some redness and small micro-dots called MENDS (microscopic epidermal necrotic debris) that may give your skin a bronzed appearance. This is simply a sign of skin healing. After about 3 to 5 days, these crusted, pinpoint dots will slough off, revealing the renewed skin beneath.
What Is Involved With Post-Treatment Care?
Because this is a non-ablative, fractionated treatment, the post-care regimen is simple. Wear a moisturizing sunscreen of at least SPF 30 and stay out of the sun. You may wear makeup 48 hours after your treatment.
How Many Treatments Are Needed?
Each patient’s cosmetic goals and skin condition is different, so the specific number of treatments varies. Most patients schedule an initial series of 3 to 4 treatment sessions and then sign up for regular maintenance treatments throughout the year.
