Moxi by Sciton Vs. BBL Hero: Which One is Right For Me?

There are numerous types of lasers available on the market today. The different types of lasers include CO2 lasers, IPL, BBL Hero, Moxi, and many others. Laser treatment is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that uses high-intensity light from a hand-held device to reshape your skin by improving its texture and tone. The process works by creating heat within your skin for new collagen production and healing of damaged skin tissue. Here’s what to know about the difference between two of our best options: the Moxi and BBL Hero lasers.

What Can Moxi and BBL Hero Treat?

Moxi and BBL Hero lasers are platforms that use light energy to help treat different skin conditions such as fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, pore size, and more. Both options are FDA approved and are best used for the following skin conditions:

BBL Hero

  • Small facial veins
    • Sunburn spots
    • Freckles and age spots
    • Small blood vessels
    • Redness
    • Acne
    • Loss of firmness
    • Aging Skin
    • Pigmentation


  • Uneven pigmentation
    • Light sun damage
    • Skin texture and tone
    • Signs of aging skin, e.g., wrinkles and fine lines
    • “Pre-rejuvenation”

Moxi and BBL Hero: Which is Better For Me?

When comparing Moxi and BBL Hero, the choice will depend on your skin condition and the type of treatment you need. Both machines have their strengths and weaknesses, so our laser technicians will discuss your best options during your consultation.


If you want a gentle, non-invasive treatment best suited for minor skin conditions and aging skin, go for Moxi. The device uses a wavelength of 1310nm (nanometer) and is designed to treat the above skin conditions.

BBL Hero

BBL Hero is the better choice if you have more severe skin conditions such as pigmentation or loss of firmness. The machine uses a wavelength of 1550nm (nanometer), similar to the sunlight. The treatment also uses light energy to help treat skin conditions.
