When you’re selecting a laser treatment, it’s always best to start by focusing on your goals. Consider which types of skin issues you’re hoping to address and what kind of results you’re hoping to achieve. Our team at Whole Beauty® Institute can help you decide which procedure would be right for you. Fractional treatments, such as Moxi at our Chicago-based practice, are laser skin resurfacing procedures that deliver small channels of energy into the skin. This stimulates the healing response and the production of new collagen in the deeper layers of the skin and reduces some types of unwanted pigment. Because the surface of the skin is left intact, the healing from fractional laser treatments is much quicker than with traditional laser treatments. Fractional lasers can improve the general tone and texture of the skin in various ways, including:

Encouraging Collagen Production

Once the energy from 1 fractional laser passes through the skin, it prompts a healing response and stimulates the development of new collagen in the dermis (the deepest layer of the skin).

Reducing Fine Lines and Wrinkles

Many facial lines and wrinkles are caused by a loss of collagen due to aging, stress, and sun damage. Fractional lasers improve wrinkles by triggering collagen regeneration.

Lightening Dark Spots

Hyperpigmentation, or spots that are darker than the surrounding skin, are often caused by sun damage or skin conditions such as melasma, which can be triggered by sun exposure. Fractional lasers target the outer layer of skin and break up the unwanted pigment to produce a clearer complexion.

Shrinking Pores

Enlarged or dilated pores are often related to excess oil production. Genetics, extended sun exposure, and a loss of skin elasticity are other possible causes of large pores. Fractional lasers not only trigger the production of more collagen, but also remodel collagen to tighten the openings.

Useful for All Skin Types

Unlike most other laser treatments, the MOXI fractional laser can be safely used on any skin tones.

Minimal Downtime

Since small beams of energy leave large areas of healthy, uninjured skin—as opposed to the laser causing damage all over—the treatment accelerates wound healing, decreases the risk of side effects, and requires little to no downtime.
