When deciding on the correct laser treatment for your skincare needs, we encourage patients to consider what is a priority for your treatment. For patients considering a Clear and Brilliant laser treatment, we also recommend considering what a Moxi laser treatment can do for your skin concerns. Whilst similar in design, these laser treatments offer several different benefits for each candidate that will define which treatment is best for you. Here at Infinity Skin, we offer the Moxi laser treatment due to the versatility of the laser and its ability to treat a wide range of skin concerns.
The Moxi laser is a non-ablative fractional laser that improves skin tone and texture issues. The Moxi device focuses on ‘prejuvenation’, to help patients looking to begin their skincare journey as a preventative treatment for younger and older patients looking to prevent premature ageing signs and create smoother skin. With Moxi you can reduce unwanted superficial pigmentation and improve skin tone and texture without the recovery or downtime associated with more aggressive laser procedures.
Moxi is designed to treat all skin colours and can be performed at any time of the year (Yes, including summer!). Moxi is ideal for younger patients who are just starting a skin regimen or those wanting to revitalize and refresh your skin’s appearance with minimal downtime
Clear and Brilliant Laser
The Clear and Brilliant laser is a gentle fractional laser treatment that focuses on skin maintenance and touch-ups to maintain your skin’s healthy glow. The Clear and Brilliant laser is used on younger skin as a preventative measure to reduce the appearance of ageing signs.
Benefits of the Moxi Laser vs the Clear and Brilliant Laser
The Moxi laser is a more effective laser that treats deeper into the dermis (the deeper part of the skin that contains collagen and elastin fibres, the supporting structure of the skin), allowing more effective treatment of skin ageing and wrinkles.
Downtime and Recovery
Depending on the depth of treatment Moxi laser may have mild swelling and redness for a few days, but makeup can be worn the next day with return to normal activities including work. Clear and Brilliant laser similarly has minimal downtime.
Skin Conditions and Collagen Production
The Moxi laser also focuses on reducing pigmentation and sun damage to the skin by resurfacing the skin’s texture. Both treatments focus on reducing the visibility of large pores as well as skin tone and texture issues, by forming smoother, tighter skin. Both the Moxi laser and the Clear and Brilliant laser stimulates the body’s production of collagen, however the Moxi laser is more effective at stimulating collagen production because it treats deeper into the skin than the Clear and Brilliant laser. Once produced, collagen tightens the skin and replaces damaged skin cells with healthier tissue.
Device Settings and Treatment Layering
The main difference between these lasers that the Moxi laser can treat to a deeper level than the Clear and Brilliant laser, and has more adjustable settings. The Moxi laser offers a variety of settings including adjustable intensity and density of the laser treatments to brighten the skin. The Clear and Brilliant is a softer laser that targets imperfections left behind after previous treatments. The Moxi laser can be combined with other treatments such as BBL HERO, BBL and Halo to create radiant results, however this laser is strong enough to also be an stand-alone skincare treatment.
Who is the ideal candidate for each laser?
Whilst both the Moxi laser and Clear and Brilliant laser have significant differences, a major deciding factor between these lasers is the age and amount of sundamage and ageing. The Clear and Brilliant laser is designed for patients who are younger with minimal or very early signs of ageing and acne. The ideal age for patients looking to treat their skin with this laser is patients 20-30 years of age.
The Moxi laser can be used on a wider range of ages – it is designed for patients who are young and beginning to focus on their improving their health care, right up to ageing patients who are looking to reduce the visibility of their wrinkles. Here at Infinity Skin we commonly treat a variety of patients looking to reduce visible premature ageing signs and create smoother, healthier, youthful-looking skin.
Overall, patients looking for a laser treatment that covers a wide variety of concerns and is suitable for all adults should consider a Moxi laser treatment.

What are the benefits of the Moxi laser in comparison to the Clear and Brilliant laser?
The Moxi laser is a more effective laser than Clear and Brilliant that treats deeper into the dermis (the deeper part of the skin that contains collagen and elastin fibres, the supporting structure of the skin), allowing more effective treatment of skin ageing and wrinkles.
Can you still treat my skin with a Moxi laser if I have a melasma?
Yes, Moxi is an effective laser for the treatment of melasma. Often laser treatments are not used on patients with melasma, as treatments can sometimes worsen the skin and even produce hyperpigmentation as a result.
What laser treatment should I consider if I am looking to reduce signs of ageing?
We recommend the Moxi laser treatment to target ageing signs such as fine lines, wrinkles, sagging skin and uneven pigmentation. The Moxi removes damaged skin cells and stimulates the body’s production of collagen and producing newer, healthier cells and collagen that gives stronger youthful-looking skin.
