What is the downtime and healing process like after Moxi laser?

One of the significant advantages of Moxi laser is its minimal downtime and straightforward healing process. Here’s what you can typically expect:

Immediately After Treatment:

  • Redness and warmth: Your skin may be slightly red and feel warm, similar to a mild sunburn, for a few hours.
  • Swelling: Mild swelling is possible, especially around the eyes.

Days 1-3:

  • Dry, sandpapery texture: Your skin may feel rough due to the formation of tiny microdots (MENDs) where the laser energy was applied.
  • Flaking: These microdots will begin to naturally flake off, revealing fresher skin underneath.

Days 3-5

  • Continued improvement: Redness subsides, and your skin tone and texture will continue to improve.

Social Downtime: Most people feel comfortable returning to work or social activities within 1-2 days post-treatment, with minor redness easily concealed by makeup, if desired.

Tips for a smooth recovery:

  • Gentle skincare: Use mild cleansers and moisturizers. Avoid harsh products or exfoliants.
  • Sun protection: Meticulous sun protection is essential with sunscreen and hats.
  • Stay hydrated: Drinking plenty of water aids in the healing process.
