Halo vs Moxi which laser is right for you?

Here at Nassif Medical Spa, Manchester UK, we are focused on providing the best services and treatments for each patient.

Choosing the right laser treatment may seem overwhelming with the variety of options available. At our Manchester MedSpa, we proudly offer both Sciton MOXI and HALO laser skin resurfacing treatments. Depending on your skincare goals, we will recommend a personalized laser treatment to address your specific needs.

MOXI™ is a non-ablative laser that avoids creating open wounds in the skin. Utilizing a random fractionated pattern, MOXI distributes microscopic depots of laser energy, resulting in a Microscopic Epidermal Necrotic Debris (MEND) response. This process enhances skin brightness, comparable to “lightly” aerating a lawn.

On the other hand, the HALO™ Laser combines ablative and non-ablative wavelengths, penetrating deeper into the skin than MOXI. With a fractionated pattern at specific strengths, HALO addresses damage at both the dermal and surface levels. This is akin to thoroughly “aerating” the lawn, and we can customize HALO based on individual needs.



*Targets early signs of aging and improves sun damage.

*Ideal for a quick “lunch break” treatment.

*Safe for all skin types.

*Minimal recovery with little to no downtime.

*Promotes a healthy glow, maintaining youthful skin.



*Treats sun damage, fine lines, wrinkles, and more.

*Can target skin lesions, scars, redness, and veins.

*Slightly longer recovery period (approximately 5-7 days).

*Significantly improves tone, texture, and reduces scars and dark spots.


Choosing between MOXI and HALO depends on your specific needs. MOXI is suitable for maintaining skin and preventing further damage, while HALO is best for reversing sun exposure and premature aging effects.

Our team of expert laser professionals at MedSpa on MediaCity Manchester is here to guide you. After a thorough consultation and skin analysis, we’ll recommend the best treatment option based on your goals, skin concerns, expected outcomes, and downtime preferences.

Both HALO and MOXI treatments can be combined with Forever Young BBL and BBL HERO laser skin resurfacing on the same day. We recommend waiting two weeks before or after laser treatments to have dermal filler injections.

Treatment Frequency:

*MOXI: A series of 3 treatments per year for preventing signs of aging.

*HALO: One treatment per year for mild-to-moderate sun damage and addressing fine lines.

Treatment Areas:

*Face, neck, chest, and other body areas as needed.


*HALO: from £1500 for a full-face treatment.

*MOXI: from £1800 for a package of 3 treatments.

Comfort Level:

*MOXI: Minimal discomfort, usually well-tolerated without numbing.

*HALO: Topical numbing cream applied; patients may feel mild to moderate heat.

I had the best experience at NassifMD Medspa UK. The spa itself is beautiful and luxurious and in a great location on the Quays. On arrival I was met by Amanda and immediately I felt relaxed and at ease. My consultation with Dr Jamie was a joy ! His knowledge and experience is vast and nothing was too much trouble when faced with my endless questions and concerns. I was given several options of treatments and between us we decided on a course of action …. The results ? Well I’m absolutely thrilled ! I can’t wait for my next appointment.

I have had many services here and the service is not only impeccable the knowledge Amanda gives is fantastic. The Dr’s and nurses at Dr.Nassif’s medical spa are amazing. My hydrafacial was the best one I’ve ever had. I get PRP and profhilo, also the best. I’ve recently just had nucleofill for my under eyes & with what was left over the Dr noticed I had a slight outbreak of spots and administered the nucleofill there. 1 day post treatment my eyes look much better and my spots have started to clear up! The initiative and attention to detail on top of already an amazing treatment is what makes this clinic the best I’ve ever been too. I won’t go anywhere else. Thanks team for being so amazing! I wouldn’t trust my face with anyone else!

I’ve had 2 courses of Halo laser and my experience with Nassif Medical Spa has been amazing. Special thanks to Amanda who really goes the extra mile when caring for her clients. I’ve felt so supported by her throughout the entire experience from initial consultation through to aftercare and I throughly recommend her and this clinic! Amanda provides the compete package including well informed guidance, effective treatments and thoughtful aftercare. Her holistic approach will help you not only get the results you need but also work to then maintain them afterwards. Thanks again to her and the team! A well deserved 5/5 - I can’t fault them!

My 1st visit to this clinic , first impressions - such a beautiful well run , professional atmosphere. Amanda and staff helped put me at my ease and explained everything before my treatment. This included previous clients photos of before and after treatments and a thorough discussion of my needs, which put me at ease. My rosacea is much improved already after treatment and I look forward to my return for follow up and a second treatment.
