What is Laser Skin Resurfacing?
Skin resurfacing with Moxi™ at Modern Medical Spa in Dallas, TX is a nonsurgical cosmetic treatment that uses pulsating beams of energy to eliminate damaged surface skin layer by layer. The procedure is great for reducing facial wrinkles and lines and for improving skin irregularities, including acne scars, pigmentation, and other issues. Also known as a laser peel, fractional skin resurfacing is a great treatment for patients who want clearer, softer, youthful-looking skin. Depending on the condition of the patient's complexion, the laser will be adjusted accordingly. There is some recovery time associated with most laser skin resurfacing facials. Any questions or concerns can be reviewed with our medical team during your assessment and consultation.
"I went To Modern Medical Spa to get my lips done by Clara. She was absolutely amazing, she made me feel comfortable and was very thorough when explaining how the process works and the after care that was needed. The Spa is sparkling clean and very welcoming. All of the employees I spoke with, whether over the phone or in the spa, were incredibly professional and attentive. I will most definitely be going back to Modern Medical for all of my future needs!!!"- A.L. / Google / Feb 12, 2021

"If you are looking to improve your skin, the Modern Medical Spa is the place to go. Barbi has helped diminish my fine and not so fine lines. Jenna has not only helped with fine lines, but my skin looks so healthy and yes...a little younger! But one of the main reasons I go to Modern Medical Spa is for their sound, clinical advice and safety approach with their patients. P.S. Also, it is a beautiful, comfortable spa!"- K.G. / Google / Dec 28, 2020

Is Laser Skin Resurfacing Right for Me?
When choosing the best laser skin resurfacing procedure for your skin, our team will need to consider several factors. Laser skin resurfacing is ideal for people who feel unhappy with their general complexion. This procedure can help treat skin imperfections, like:
- Sun damage
- Age spots
- Acne scars
- Fine lines
- Pigmentation issues
- Scaly patches
- Rough texture
- Other skin surface problems
However, we do not recommend laser skin resurfacing for anyone with very dark skin or active acne. It is also important to know that you will require a recovery period after your laser treatments. Depending on the skin's condition, some patients may require up to 2 – 3 weeks for recovery.
How Does Laser Skin Resurfacing Work?
Before you are scheduled for a more intense or deeper skin resurfacing session, you may be given a topical retinoid for 2 – 3 weeks before your laser procedure. This helps prepare the skin for more effective results. Medication may be prescribed prior to the procedure to help minimize discomfort so you can relax during your session. If your skin needs mild improvement, a topical anesthetic will be used to numb treated areas of the face. For the full complexion or more intense laser treatments, a kind of sedation may be used. During the procedure, you can relax in our special treatment chair while the laser passes over the skin, precisely targeting the needed areas for rejuvenation. At Modern Medical Spa, we use the Moxi laser platform, which allows us to treat patients of all skin types with little to no downtime. This state-of-the-art technology uses fractioned wavelengths in order to destroy damaged and dead skin cells while also stimulating new collagen growth.
What to Expect After Laser Skin Resurfacing
After milder resurfacing sessions with the Moxi laser, a healing ointment may be smoothed over the treated skin before you go home for your recovery. The treated skin will appear red, and there will be some irritation and swelling. This should subside within a couple of days, and the skin peeling process will occur over a 3 – 5-day timeframe. Every patient needs to limit their sun exposure following their laser treatment and use sun protection throughout the day. Regardless of the intensity, the treated skin will naturally crust, flake, and peel away. It's vital to avoid interfering with the healing process to keep from scarring and to protect your face from sun exposure. After the peeling has completed, the treated skin should feel smoother while also looking clearer, younger, and rejuvenated.
