Our skin is not only our largest and most protective organ; it also a map of our years on this earth, documenting our joys as well as our struggles. When we’re young, we take our vibrant, supple skin for granted. As we get older, however, we begin to truly appreciate this precious coat of constantly changing cells and take our first steps towards its preservation and care. From our forehead to our toes, our skin deserves our attention.
That’s why at Capizzi MD, you will find the most advanced, age-defying skincare treatments in the cosmetic industry, administered by our team of expertly trained RN’s, injection specialists and medical skincare assistants. To not only meet but also exceed the aesthetic goals of each and every client is the primary objective of Dr. Capizzi and his outstanding team. Below you will find a brief overview of our most popular and effective skincare procedures.
If you are looking for a more intense and effective facial than you would receive at a spa, yet still want a soothing, relaxing experience without any downtime, you may be the perfect candidate for a medical facial. Tired, weary, sun-damaged skin responds best to medical facials because they are performed using medical-grade skincare products that require a doctor’s supervision. Medical facials may be recommended in conjunction with other great age-reversing techniques such as laser skin resurfacing or dermal fillers.
Dermaplaning is an effective treatment for manually removing the top layer of the stratum corneum by using a scalpel to lightly scrape the face. This procedure dramatically smoothes and refreshes the skin. Dermaplaning also has the added benefit of removing facial hair. The facial hair that is removed is vellus hair that does grow back. Please note that the hair does not grow back thicker or thinner, lighter or darker but grows back the same as the hair follicle is not being impacted. This treatment is recommended every four weeks and is also an excellent addition to facials and chemical peels.
Micro needling is a procedure that is used to treat laxity and textural skin problems such as wrinkles and acne scars. We use Rejuvapen to create tiny perforations in the skin. These tiny perforations harness the skins own capacity for healing and increases skin firmness and overall Radiance.
The Custom Facial
Dr. Capizzi’s skincare professionals will create a facial that is perfectly suited to your unique needs. A skin analysis of skin conditions, problem areas, and history of sun exposure will inform your practitioner with everything she needs to know to give you a delicious and replenishing custom facial.
Broad Band Light—or BBL—is an incredible laser that uses targeted light beams to treat brown pigment in the skin (age spots), redness due to broken capillaries, sun damage or rosacea. This laser is known as the Forever Young Laser because studies show that after BBL treatments, the dermal skin cells will continue to increase production of elastin and collagen in the skin, creating a much more youthful appearance.
Before & After
Take a gander at Dr. Capizzi’s before and after photos, giving you a visual representation of his stunning results.
Chemical peels are very effective treatments for addressing the loss of collagen and elastin in the skin. The average patient stops making elastin in their twenties and begins to lose about a quarter teaspoon of collagen every year beginning usually in their late 30’s to early 40’s. This loss of elastin and collagen leads to weak, wrinkled, lax dull skin. Chemical peels remove the top layer of tired skin and stimulate the dermis to improve elasticity and collagen in the skin leading to tighter, brighter and lighter skin.
Chemical peels are also customizable to target skin discoloration, acne, rosacea and excessively oily or dehydrated skin. Chemical peels range from light epidermal stimulation with zero downtime to deep dermal stimulation with 5 to 7 days of noticeable exfoliation. Our highly trained and licensed aestheticians will customize an effective peel program based on each patients unique needs. Our goal is always to improve the overall health and beauty of your skin. If you are looking for one chemical peels, look no further than Dr. Capizzi’s practice.
Laser skin resurfacing with erbium
The erbium laser is used for skin resurfacing, which vaporizes the outer damaged layer of skin to reveal a more youthful, rejuvenated appearance. Its ultra fine laser channels are designed to reach the appropriate depths needed to achieve great results, yet spare the surrounding tissue from unnecessarily harsh side effects or inflammation.
Dr. Capizzi and his seasoned staff of skincare experts offer several dynamic laser peel combinations that employ both BBL and the erbium laser technologies. Laser peels smooth, tone and replenish skin that looks dull and flat, reversing the signs of aging while improving skin texture. Most laser peels require no downtime and are perfect for those with a busy schedule who want the benefits of a facelift without the longer recovery times.
Laser hair reduction
This exciting advance in cosmetic technology has made it possible to permanently banish unwanted body hair using focused laser beams that selectively target the hair follicles for destruction. Laser hair reduction is appropriate for all skin types and all areas of the body, including the face, arms, legs, neck, back and bikini area. Because hair is continuously undergoing different stages of growth, optimum results are achieved through a series of 6-8 treatments every 1-2 months.
Having been through the Capizzi experience, these patients can help you understand the smoothness of the journey.
Gentlelase Hair Removal
We use the Gentlelase Laser to target unwanted hair anywhere on the body. The Gentlelase uses targeted laser light to treat dark pigmented hair and is a very effective and safe treatment for unwanted hair. Popular areas for hair removal include but are not limited to the underarms, bikini area, legs and lip/chin area. Most patients receive six treatments to become smooth and hair free. What a wonderful gift to give yourself or someone special.
