Sciton BBL and Moxi treatments

Lasers have become one of the greatest tools in the cosmetics industry’s toolbox. Every year the global cosmetic lasers market continues to grow, both in size and levels of innovation, and there’s no sign of that stopping. In fact, it’s expected the market will reach an impressive $3.28 billion in 2025 – up from “just” $1.64 billion in 2020. Which shows just how popular cosmetic laser treatments have become over the last few years.   

So what’s so great about laser treatments? It’s simple. Lasers are able to achieve significant results in a range of areas (think skin rejuvenation, hair removal, body contouring, scar removal, etc.), and they are often quicker, less painful, less invasive, and require less recovery time than other more traditional methods. 

This of course all means that there is a wide range of lasers and laser treatments available in the market these days, which also means it can be hard to decipher what they all do, what the differences are, and which is best for you. 

At BodyTonic we’re committed to only offering the very best treatments and technology – game-changing, cutting-edge, innovative treatments that provide our clients with unparalleled results and experiences…

…and Sciton’s BBL Hero and MOXI laser treatments are exactly that. This is a duo of anti-aging, skin-rejuvenating game-changers! Ready to find out more? Read on…

What is Sciton BBL and MOXI Laser Skin Rejuvenation?

Sciton is one of the leading providers of aesthetic laser and light technology, and MOXI and BBL Hero are the powerhouse duo of treatment technologies that form Sciton’s mJOULE platform – one of its newest and greatest innovations. 

These two non-invasive laser treatments can be performed individually or as a combination treatment, and they work to rejuvenate the skin and improve skin concerns such as fine lines, age spots, scarring, texture, and pigmentation.

MOXI is a non-ablative fractional laser treatment that works to revitalize the skin, while BBL Hero is a powerful broadband light (BBL) treatment that has been quoted as being the most significant advancement in this type of technology in 20 years

The advancement of these two particular treatments means they can treat areas across the entire body with far more speed, power, comfort, and better results that other treatments. Benefits that we, and our clients, are loving!

What are the differences between BBL Hero and MOXI?

Both BBL Hero and MOXI work to improve common skin concerns, but they each target slightly different issues. 
BBL is generally more focused on skin tone, and is more effective at turning back the clock on visible signs of aging, whereas MOXI is more focused on the skin texture, and is a great option for longer-term maintenance and “prejuvenation”, a.k.a. keeping your skin looking its best.

BBL Hero: for younger-looking skin

BBL Hero can be used on every skin type, and all parts of the body – including the face, neck, decolletage, arms, legs, back, buttocks, and abdomen.

BBL Hero can improve the appearance of the following skin conditions:

  • Age and sun spots
  • Freckles and age spots
  • Small facial veins
  • Small blood vessels and rosacea
  • Redness
  • Active acne
  • Loose or sagging skin
  • Pigmentation

MOXI: for smooth, bright, radiant skin

MOXI is designed to focus on the surface of the skin, making it look refreshed, revitalized, and beautifully maintained. As with BBL, it can be used on all areas of the body, and all skin types. 

It uses a gentle non-ablative laser to address the first signs of aging skin, including tone, texture, and pigmentation issues. 

MOXI improves the appearance of the following skin conditions:

  • Uneven complexion
  • Pigmentation issues, including melasma
  • Poor texture
  • Light sun damage
  • Wrinkles
  • Minor skin laxity

The overall benefits of BBL Hero and MOXI laser treatments

While the results mentioned above (younger, firmer, brighter, clearer, smoother skin) are of course excellent benefits of these treatments, the “benefit list” isn’t only limited to the results. 

Sciton’s MOXI and BBL Hero are also quick, painless, non-invasive treatments – meaning they revitalize the skin without breaking the surface. This comes with all kinds of benefits in itself, such as being able to do the treatment on your lunchbreak, wear make-up again within 24 hours of your treatment, and enjoy a simple and stress-free post-treatment regimen.  

So in addition to the amazing results you’ll see when looking in the mirror, here are some of the other great benefits of MOXI and BBL laser treatments:

  • Effective as “preventative” anti-aging skincare
  • Non-invasive 
  • No downtime
  • Long-lasting and natural-looking results
  • Faster and more effective than other lasers
  • Comfortable, low-pain treatment
  • Can be used across the entire body, and quickly treats large areas 
  • Encourages collagen production 
  • Naturally tightens the skin 
  • Safe for all skin types
  • Combinable – with each other, and other treatments

How BBL Hero & MOXI laser skin rejuvenation treatments work 

BBL and MOXI each use a different type of laser technology. BBL stands for broadband light, which is also known as phototherapy, whereas MOXI uses non-ablative fractional laser energy. 

While the technology behind each laser is very different, they both use wavelengths of light energy that penetrate deep under the skin – without removing or damaging any of the top layers – and generate heat. This heat stimulates cell regeneration and the production of collagen and elastin, which are well-known as the body’s natural answer to firm, plump, young, healthy-looking skin. 

The main differences between the two treatments are that MOXI works deeper in the skin than the broadband light, and BBL uses a broad spectrum of light that can be filtered in several different ways in order to treat specific conditions – hence each treatment generating different results. 

However, results aside, both treatments are otherwise fairly similar in terms of what to expect: 

  • Fast: Both treatments are fast (BBL Hero is 4x faster than traditional BBL treatments) and the average face treatment for both MOXI and BBL Hero takes just 10–15 minutes.
  • Pain-free: An in-built cooling system combined with a topical anesthetic makes these the gentlest, lowest-pain laser treatments on the market. 
  • No downtime: There’s no downtime at all, both treatments can be done on your lunch break and you can carry on as usual immediately after. Following a MOXI laser treatment, you might experience a little redness and swelling for a few days, but this is usually minimal and can be covered with make-up after 24 hours. 
  • Fast & long-lasting results: Results are normally visible within a few days to a week, and will last indefinitely with regular treatments. The number of treatments recommended will depend on your specific needs, but you can expect to achieve your desired results within about 3–4 MOXI treatments and 1–2 BBL treatments, followed by annual maintenance treatments to keep your skin looking as good as possible on a long-term basis! 

Which is better for you, BBL Hero or MOXI?

Whichever is better for you will depend on your specific skin needs, concerns, and desired results, so – as with any skin treatment – you should arrange a consultation with a professional before making any decisions. 

However, generally speaking: 

BBL Hero is better if… you want to turn back the clock on aging, and for more noticeable skin conditions such as pigmentation, sun damage, loss of skin firmness, wrinkles, etc. 

MOXI is better if… you want a gentle and light rejuvenation treatment, to improve the overall health and appearance of your skin, and as long-term maintenance and prevention against the signs of aging. 

Or BOTH are better if… you want the most comprehensive, synergistic, serious wow-factor results! Alone, each of these treatments generates remarkable results. When combined, this is a whole other level of skin rejuvenation.
