mJoule Platform

The mJoule Platform by Sciton

Aesthetic treatments have come a long way. Before, undergoing the knife and having procedures performed such as a facelift used to be the only ways to revitalize your image. But there are now numerous treatments available to boost your beauty and restore your youth – without undergoing the knife or more invasive procedures, reducing the time needed for recovery and lessening the risk for complications. Among these aesthetic treatments are BBL HERO, MOXI and SkinTyte, three treatments that come packaged in the extraordinary mJoule platform.

The mJoule platform is an aesthetics system that features several handheld devices, allowing for customizable treatments based on your unique cosmetic concerns. The platform can reduce the appearance of wrinkles, rid the skin of hyperpigmentation and redness and revitalize the skin, so it is ready to begin a new skincare regimen.

What is the mJoule Platform?

The mJoule platform is the latest development by Sciton, a lead developer in aesthetic-boosting technologies. The platform features several handheld devices: the BBL HERO, MOXI and SkinTyte. Each of these unique devices is capable of treating specific cosmetic concerns. The mJoule platform is particularly unique because it can treat cosmetic concerns for everyone from Gen Z to Boomers.

Patients can undergo the gentle effects of the MOXI laser, which will rejuvenate the skin and create a lasting glow. The BBL HERO can be utilized to treat more significant signs of hyperpigmentation and vascularity concerns. Or patients can combine the powerful effects of MOXI and BBL HERO to achieve comprehensive results. The SkinTyte device is well suited for treating patients struggling with lax skin.

The capabilities of the mJoule platform will be thoroughly reviewed with you during an initial consultation. Your treatment may include using one handheld device or may consist of a combination of handheld devices to achieve your cosmetic goals.

What Treatments Can Be Performed With the mJoule Platform?

Each mJoule device is well adept at restoring the vitality of a patient’s skin by promoting the body’s natural production of collagen. This protein is essential for maintaining skin firmness. However, which device is utilized during your treatment will depend on the significance of your cosmetic concerns and what your specific cosmetic concerns are.

The treatments that can be performed with the mJoule platform are:

The BBL HERO treatment is an upgraded and ‘in motion’ version of the intense-pulsed light (IPL) treatment BBL. The treatment utilizes dual lamps that deliver visible and infrared light to rejuvenate the skin at a cellular level. The treatment also features smart quick-change filters, which allow it to adjust to targeting specific cosmetic concerns. BBL HERO is a step up from the original BBL treatment because it possesses quicker speeds, shortened pulse widths and high peak power. Additionally, the treatment also has twice the cooling capacity, making it safer and preventing irritation after treatment. 

Who Is the Treatment for?

BBL HERO is an ideal IPL treatment for patients with light to medium skin tones. However, there is a wavelength that can accommodate patients with a darker skin tone. During an initial consultation, your skin will be reviewed to ensure candidacy. The treatment can be successfully performed on the face, neck, chest, hands and arms. BBL HERO is an exceptional treatment for treating hyperpigmentation and red tones (such as those associated with rosacea) and can also treat such cosmetic concerns as wrinkles, fine lines, and dull skin. 

What Happens During Treatment?

Your BBL HERO treatment will begin with cleansing your skin and applying a clear gel that will help absorb the light energy. The handheld BBL HERO device will then be applied to your treatment site, which will then emit short pulses of light energy while the applicator device is kept in motion on the skin. The treatment is generally tolerable, and with each pulse, you will experience a warming sensation. The light energy will find its way to your melanin and break apart unwanted pigmentation. In the process, the treatment will stimulate your body’s natural healing response, promoting collagen and elastin production. 

What Results Can I Expect?

After approximately two to four weeks after your BBL HERO treatment, your skin will be visibly tauter and no longer be defined by such concerns as sunspots and age spots. Generally, a series of treatments may be necessary to achieve optimal results. Typically, patients are recommended for three to five BBL HERO treatment sessions. 


MOXI is a non-ablative laser that allows for gentle skin resurfacing. The non-ablative fractional laser delivers heat beneath the skin’s surface through thousands of tiny channels without damaging surrounding skin tissues. The energy helps stimulate new cell growth and remove unwanted pigments. The laser treatment is particularly unique because it can improve skin tone and texture without the recovery or downtime that is often associated with other laser treatments. The fractional aspect of the laser also significantly reduces the necessary time needed to heal.

Who Is the Treatment for?

The MOXI laser is a safe treatment for all skin types, all year-round. The treatment is ideal for young patients seeking to start a skin care regimen and wants to start with a clean slate without cosmetic perfections or simply for those interested in revitalizing the appearance of their skin. The treatment is often used to combat signs of age before they appear. MOXI is beneficial for treating uneven pigmentation, tone and texture, light sun damage and premature signs of age. MOXI is often combined with the BBL HERO treatment because MOXI can maintain the results produced by BBL HERO.

What Happens During Treatment?

During your MOXI treatment, your skin will be thoroughly cleansed and a numbing agent is placed on the skin for approximately 20 to 30 minutes. The MOXI device will then be rolled across your desired treatment sites, which will deliver gentle micro-pulses of fractionated laser energy to your skin. The treatment will create controlled damage to your skin cells and will not affect surrounding skin tissues. The laser energy heats tiny columns in the skin, effectively stimulating collagen production to transform and renew your skin. A MOXI treatment is referred to as a ‘lunchtime procedure’ because it can be performed quickly – in less time it takes for your lunch break at work to end.

What Results Can I Expect?

As your collagen production increases and your results improve, you will attain an improved radiance and glow after approximately one week after your initial MOXI treatment. Removing significant signs of dark spots and sun damage will require multiple treatments. Three to four treatment sessions spaced one week apart are typically recommended. MOXI treatment sessions can be scheduled once or twice a year to maintain results successfully.


SkinTyte is a skin tightening treatment that utilizes infrared light technology. The treatment heats the deep dermal layers of the skin to activate the body’s natural healing response. SkinTyte features filters that are designed to accommodate a patient’s unique needs. The infrared energy is delivered in rapid, gentle pulses and promotes the contraction coagulation of the collagen in the skin. SkinTyte is a safe and effective alternative to more invasive skin tightening treatments.

Who Is the Treatment for?

SkinTyte is a treatment that can be successfully performed on men and women of any skin tone and type. The treatment is ideal for skin laxity concerns of the face, neck and body. Patients with cosmetic concerns such as fine lines, wrinkles, irregular pigmentation, and uneven texture will find SkinTyte beneficial. SkinTyte is a treatment not meant for treating severe skin laxity. Instead, the treatment is best performed on healthy skin that is beginning to sag or as a preventative measure.

What Happens During Treatment?

Your SkinTyte treatment will begin with applying a cooling gel to your desired treatment site. The SkinTyte device will then be applied to your skin, and rapid infrared energy pulses will be delivered to the deeper layers of your skin. The treatment is generally tolerable. However, you may experience a slight warming sensation. A SkinTyte treatment typically lasts for 30 minutes but will depend on how many areas you are having treated and the size of the treatment site.

What Results Can I Expect?

The skin tightening effects of a SkinTyte treatment are not immediate. As time goes on, your production of collagen will continue to increase, and your skin will become firmer. Gradually, your skin will have a more youthful quality that is fresh with vitality. Attaining optimal results will require three to six treatments spaced two weeks apart.
