Many of the skincare treatments at Capizzi MD address common skin concerns like anti-aging, sun damage, acne, scars, and hyperpigmentation. While we love a multi-step skincare routine, it can be more beneficial to pair products with a treatment. Laser treatments like MicroLaser Peel and BBL are effective in targeting specific concerns like rosacea or sun spots, but how do you know which one will produce the best results for YOUR skin? The best way to know your best option is to request a complimentary skincare consultation with one of our Licensed Medical Aestheticians!

Everyone’s skin is different. Everyone’s needs are different. Your provider can customize a treatment to fit your skin type, tone, concerns, and unique needs. From targeted treatments to ongoing skin maintenance to complete dermal revitalization, MicroLaser Peel and BBL are some of the most powerful and efficient ways to tackle a variety of concerns.

What is a MicroLaser Peel?

MicroLaser Peel to women's face, right side near lip.Those looking for an addition to their anti-aging routine will love the restorative effects of the MicroLaser Peel (or MLP). With only minimal downtime, this light resurfacing treatment evens out skin tone, texture, and color. The MLP treatment also restores a healthy-looking, youthful glow to the skin as an added bonus. It is the perfect tool for removing mild-to-deep wrinkles that result from photoaging.

What issues are addressed and what are the benefits?

Using advanced laser technology, the MicroLaser Peel safely and precisely removes the outer layer of the skin, replacing the dead skin cells with new, healthy cells to improve the texture and clarity of the skin. Sun damage, mild wrinkles, scars (including from acne), enlarged pores, poor or uneven skin tone, and pigment irregularities.


Versatile Treatment – your provider can customize a single treatment to address a variety of your skin concerns occurring on, and slightly below, the surface.

Easily Combinable – a MicroLaser Peel can improve the outcomes of other aesthetic laser treatments, and even facial plastic surgery, by targeting the central part of the face, improving skin color & texture, and eliminating wrinkles.

What happens during the treatment?

During treatment, your provider will apply a topical numbing cream before utilizing the MicroLaser Peel device to your skin, which delivers intense laser energy to stimulate new collagen production. This process precisely removes the superficial layer of the skin.

Sciton’s design of the MicroLaser Peel allows for customizable depth of laser energy delivery, and perfect, uniform coverage to achieve radiant results with minimal downtime.

What is BBL?

Broadband Laser Treatment to women's right chin area.BBL, or BroadBand Light™, is the gold standard in treating skin conditions associated with aging, sun damage, and acne. This corrective phototherapy treatment utilizes pulses of light energy to gently heat the skin’s surface. This induces the body’s natural healing process for improved elastin and collagen production—leaving you luminously glowing with continued improvement over time!

What issues are addressed and what are the benefits?

BBL technology addresses imperfections on the surface of the skin, as well as deep-rooted pigmentation issues. Freckles, age spots, deeper lesions, cherry angiomas, rosacea, acne, appearance of skin laxity, and unwanted hair.


Customizable – because of the speed and versatility of BBL technology, your provider can treat a wide range of skin concerns in a single session.

No Downtime – patients can enjoy normal social activities immediately after treatment, and there is no heavy or time-intensive post-care.

Comfortable – BBL uses highly advanced cooling techniques to ensure treatments are not only safe and quick, but comfortable for you.

Amazing Results – see noticeable improvement within weeks, with continued improvement over time.

What happens during the treatment?

During treatment, you should feel minimal to no discomfort as your provider gently glides the BBL handpiece across the skin. Simultaneously, a sapphire on the end of its applicator will keep the skin cool and comfortable. After the treatment, most patients will continue to feel warm for an additional 30 to 60 minutes.
