Improve Your Skin with MOXI™
If there’s one area of your body you should invest in, it’s your skin. As your body’s largest organ, your skin requires consistent care in order for you to look and feel your best. Our med spa near Naperville is proud to offer MOXI™ to our skincare lovers. This is one of the newest skincare technologies on the market that’s designed to provide patients with real results in the gentlest way possible.
What Is It?
MOXI™ is a laser tool designed for those who want to touch up their skin and give it a little extra TLC without any downtown. Not only is it safe to use on every skin type at any point throughout the year, but there is absolutely no down time required for this treatment. Schedule your MOXI™ appointment over your lunch break and return to the office immediately after.
This tool is used to help improve a variety of common skin problems such as:
- Tone and texture
- Uneven pigmentation
- Sun damage
- Aging skin
- Long-term skin maintenance
The procedure itself will only take 10-20 minutes to complete, and we are happy to provide you with topical anesthesia to help reduce any discomfort during the procedure. You may experience a bit of redness following the procedure depending on the laser level that is used.
Moxi™ can be used in combination with other skincare treatments. Our team at the Center for Cosmetic & Laser Surgery can provide recommendations based on your skincare goals and existing needs.
What is BBL™?
BroadBand Light Therapy uses cutting-edge technology to produce younger looking skin that’s firm, and more even in tone and texture. BBL™ is FDA approved and requires little recovery time. The light energy delivered by the BBL™ will gently heat the upper layers of your skin and the heat absorbed by the targeted areas will stimulate skin cells and generate new collagen. This process restores your skin to its natural beauty, blending its natural colors and making it smoother.
What Does a BBL™ Treat?
Any area of your body may be treated. The most popular treatments are on the face, neck, back of the hands, chest and shoulders, due to the amount these areas are exposed to sunlight. A series of BBL™ treatments are highly effective for a variety of skin conditions such as brown spots, small spider veins, general skin redness, and broken capillaries.
Who Should Not Get a BBL™ Treatment?
Those who have recently sun-tanned their skin or anyone who receives excess sun exposure in the immediate weeks following treatment should not receive this treatment for safety reasons. Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding should also not receive treatment. Anyone with connective tissue disease, autoimmune disorders, pacemakers or those who are prone to keloids should avoid treatment. You should not receive treatment if you are taking Accutane or if you have stopped taking Accutane in the last 6 months. Individuals who get fever blister attacks (herpes simplex) should take an ant-herpes medication prior to treatment.
What Can I Expect During My BBL Treatment?
Treatments last 15-60 minutes. Make-up will be removed, as well as sun block and face creams. Men should shave on the day of treatment prior to their arrival. Eye shields will be given to protect eyes. Cooling gel will be applied to your skin prior prior to treatment, which will help with the discomfort. After the procedure you will be asked to ice the area and will be given post-treatment instructions.
