Comparing Trending Lasers to Advanced Dermatology’s Laser Treatments

As the world of aesthetic treatments continues to evolve, two devices trending on TikTok, Morpheus8 and Moxi®, have garnered significant attention. These treatments offer unique benefits for skin rejuvenation, but how do they compare to the devices we offer at Advanced Dermatology? Morpheus8 is often compared to Genius™, while Moxi® is most comparable to LaseMD® Ultra. Fall and winter are the best times to undergo these treatments, so now is the perfect opportunity to explore what these devices can do for your skin and why you should consider scheduling your treatments soon.

Morpheus8 is a fractional radiofrequency treatment that targets deep layers of the skin to stimulate collagen production and improve skin texture. This device is particularly effective for tightening the skin, reducing wrinkles, and improving the appearance of scars. At Advanced Dermatology, we offer Genius™, a similar RF microneedling device that surpasses Morpheus8 in several key aspects. Genius™ features precision needle depth, ensuring that needles go to the exact depth requested for larger and more accurately placed coagulation zones. Additionally, Genius™ has impedance control for more accurate energy delivery, resulting in better outcomes. The temperature controlled pulses in Genius™ mean that every pulse is monitored for the correct temperature, shutting off if it is too high, which enhances safety. Furthermore, Genius™ provides feedback if the desired temperature was not achieved, ensuring accuracy and effectiveness in every treatment.

Moxi® is a non-ablative fractional laser treatment designed to improve skin tone and texture with minimal downtime. It is effective in treating sun damage, pigmentation, and early signs of aging. At our practice, we use LaseMD® Ultra, which offers superior benefits compared to Moxi®. LaseMD® Ultra boasts a perfectly flat beam profile for clean, non-ablative fractional injuries, enabling faster healing and less downtime. The large beam profile of LaseMD® Ultra is ideal for targeted pigment removal. Moreover, LaseMD® Ultra is highly tunable with many more settings compared to Moxi®’s four settings, providing a more customizable and precise treatment.

The fall and winter months are the ideal times to undergo these treatments. During these seasons, reduced sun exposure helps minimize the risk of post treatment pigmentation issues and allows the skin to heal more effectively. Scheduling your treatments in the cooler months ensures you achieve the best possible results with the least amount of disruption to your daily routine.

In addition to Genius™ and LaseMD® Ultra, we offer a range of other laser treatments at Advanced Dermatology, each catering to different skin concerns and levels of aggressiveness. Fraxel® is a popular choice for patients looking to address deeper wrinkles and more significant sun damage. The Clear + Brilliant® laser provides a gentle option for those seeking to maintain a youthful appearance with minimal downtime. For more intensive treatments, we offer CO2RE® and eMatrix®, which are excellent for significant skin resurfacing and addressing deep acne scars or severe sun damage. Our Profound® RF treatment combines microneedling with radiofrequency to target deeper layers of the skin, offering a non-surgical facelift alternative.
