HydraFacial® and Moxi™ treatments are two popular skin care treatments offered at many spas and medispas. However, it is not recommended to do both treatments at the same time.
A HydraFacial® is a medical-grade resurfacing treatment that uses a patented Vortex-Fusion delivery system to deeply cleanse, exfoliate, extract, and hydrate the skin. It is a non-invasive treatment that can be customized to address specific skin concerns such as fine lines and wrinkles, uneven skin tone and texture, and acne.
On the other hand, Moxi™ is a non-invasive treatment that uses radiofrequency energy to heat the deeper layers of the skin. This heat stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, which improves the skin’s elasticity and firmness. Moxi also helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and can be used to improve the overall texture and tone of the skin. This is one of our most effective treatments to lessen the appearance of melasma or hyperpigmentation. It is also safe on all skin types including men and women of color.
While both treatments can be beneficial for the skin, it is not recommended to do them at the same time because they use different methods to improve the skin. Additionally, the two treatments have different recovery times and it is best to allow the skin to recover completely before starting another treatment.
However, it is possible to combine treatments such as BBL, Exosomes, and even CO2 Lift Mask with a HydraFacial or Moxi treatment.
BBL, or Broadband Light, is a non-invasive treatment that uses intense pulsed light to improve the appearance of sun damage, age spots, and other pigmentation issues.
Exosomes, on the other hand, are tiny packets of molecules that are extracted from cells and used to deliver growth factors and other beneficial compounds to the skin. They can be used to enhance skin rejuvenation outcomes and improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. We have even seen significant improvement in hyperpigmentation of the skin when we utilize these at the time of a Moxi treatment.
CO2 Lift Mask is a treatment that uses carbon dioxide to improve the overall appearance of the skin. It can help to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, improve skin tone and texture, and give the skin a more youthful, radiant appearance. We have found that this DIY treatment speeds up your recovery process and hydrates the skin exponentially. This decreased downtime has a very positive impact on your recovery.
When combining these treatments, it’s important to consult with a skincare professional to determine the best treatment plan for your individual needs and skin type. They can recommend a treatment plan that is tailored to your specific goals and concerns and may suggest a certain order in which to undergo each treatment.
