What is Moxi® Skin Rejuvenation?
We are proud to now offer MOXI Skin Resurfacing here at Petroff Center Plastic Surgery and Medi-Spa is a cutting-edge, preventive laser skin treatment option. Known amongst providers as a quick and easy procedure that can be performed over the span of a single lunch break, this treatment is a nonsurgical cosmetic procedure that uses pulsating beams of energy to eliminate damaged surface skin cells layer by layer. The procedure is performed for addressing facial lines and wrinkles and for allowing younger patients with more preventive concerns a gentler option for starting their skin care treatment journeys. MOXI lasers can be adjusted for anywhere from small touch-ups to more intensive skin needs. Based on the condition of the skin, the laser may be customized accordingly. There is little downtime required with this treatment option. Any questions or concerns can be reviewed with your esthetician during your initial consultation.

"Dr. Petroff was the most humble, amazing doctor I have ever met. I would recommend him and his team to anyone looking to have a medical procedure done. I have never felt so comfortable with a medical team, where I knew from the beginning that this is the place I 100% want to have my surgery done at. Every single person I met there was friendly, organized, and very professional. He is an amazing doctor that has an incredible gift and he has a whole team that makes his practice so ideal."- K. / Healthgrades / Jul 20, 2018

"I had rhinoplasty with Dr Petroff in the summer of 2005. This many years on I can attest to the quality of his skill. Completely natural looking and absolutely improved my life."- T. / Google / Jul 23, 2021
"I can’t speak highly enough about Dr Petroff and his staff. I started visiting the center years ago for facials, chemical peels and laser treatments. I was always completely amazed and how amazing the staff was, and how much my skin improved. I had always hoped to one day fix my crooked nose. There was no doubt in my mind Dr Petroff would be the surgeon for me, after seeing his amazing work on my family and friends. I had a rhinoplasty done a little over a year and a half ago... and to this day I’m still in complete awe of his work. I couldn’t imagine a more perfect nose for my face. My nose was unique but Dr Petroff was able to transform it. I am forever thankful to Dr Petroff, and his amazing staff who has always made me feel comfortable and welcomed."- K.A. / Yelp / Jul 21, 2021
"Thank you so much Dr. Petroff. From the moment I walked into the Petroff Center I was so very completely taken care of by experienced, friendly, and competent staff. I found Dr. Petroff to be a very talented and brilliant plastic surgeon. The facelift I received made my kids say “Mom! You look 30 years younger!” (slight exaggeration). I received the best care and from the best doctor ever! Dr. Mark Petroff is a perfectionist. I look amazing and feel wonderful after only two weeks post surgery! The face and neck lift look very natural. Examples: Turkey neck – gone, I can feel my trachea; pixie ear gone, he gave me ear lobes; my high cheek bones are back along with my happy smile. After interviewing a number of surgeons Dr. Petroff was the only facial plastic surgeon would make an incision hidden inside the hairline. I was out in the public within four days when I was able to have dinner at a restaurant with my son. He listened to my concerns and preformed a scar revision from work left by another doctor years ago. I am so grateful to another plastic surgeon who recommended Dr. Petroff. He told me that Dr. Petroff is the best at facial surgery and would send his mother to him for a facelift. I took his advice and I am so thankful I did. Oh, and by the way, it was not that painful at all, just a bit uncomfortable. Go for it!"- A.M. / Google / Jun 05, 2021
How is this treatment performed?
Moxi treatments, known as the lunchtime facial, are designed for fitting perfectly into your busy lifestyle. Once you arrive at Petroff Center, your esthetician will likely apply a numbing cream to you first to help guarantee that your treatment is as seamless and painless as possible before using the MOXI laser in any areas you are hoping to see improvement in. Because MOXI rolls over treatment areas gently, this option is great for patients looking for less downtime from other facial or laser options. This treatment typically takes 8 – 12 minutes from start to finish, with no recovery time needed, meaning it really is as easy as popping into our office on any sort of break you may have in your schedule to achieve the skin you want.
What should I expect after MOXI?
After MOXI, you will see noticeable results within as few as 2 – 6 weeks, and you will observe a smoother, more even skin surfacing throughout the healing process. You should do your best to avoid direct sun exposure for the first eight hours following your treatment, and be sure to wear sunscreen that also moisturizes your freshly treated skin. As you wait for your skin's surface to regenerate, please be sure to use a gentle moisturizer and cleanser, as this will help protect and cleanse your skin from unwanted dirt and bacteria as it heals. Makeup and facial skincare regimens can be applied as soon as 24 hours following your treatment at Petroff Center Plastic Surgery & Medi-Spa.
