Laser Skin Resurfacing
At Still Well by Dr. Stilwell in Staten Island, NY, we offer laser skin resurfacing treatments using two powerful and effective skin-perfecting devices, the BBL® Hero™ and MOXI® laser. These devices can treat and correct stubborn skin conditions, including wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, skin texture irregularities, and more. If you want healthier, brighter, and younger-looking skin, we can help you achieve your goals with one or both of these laser treatments.
What Is Laser Skin Resurfacing?
Laser skin resurfacing treatments are designed to improve the skin using light-based energy. The powerful advanced technology in these devices removes damaged and discolored skin cells from the treatment area, replacing them with younger and healthier cells.
The result is visibly younger-looking skin, a more uniform skin tone, and a smoother skin texture. We offer two laser skin resurfacing treatments: the BBL® Hero® and the MOXI® laser, both of which can meet the needs of patients with unique skin concerns, skin types, and skin care goals.
The BBL® Hero™
The BBL® Hero™ is a laser skin resurfacing treatment that uses broadband light to administer an effective photofacial. During treatment, the device uses advanced intense pulsed light to rid the skin of imperfections, promoting a more even skin tone and texture, and it uses speed and precision to correct pigmentation issues on both the face and the body in just minutes.
This device is significantly more powerful and efficient than other devices of its kind, as it can perform treatments at four times the treatment speed, three times the peak power, and two times the cooling capabilities.
What It Treats
The BBL® Hero™ IPL device can treat the most common pigmentation concerns, including freckles, sun spots, age spots, melasma, and hyperpigmentation. It can brighten a dull complexion, reduce the appearance of redness and rosacea, and eliminate broken capillaries and small veins. With repeated treatments, it can significantly improve the appearance of the most common signs of aging, including skin laxity, fine lines, and wrinkles.
What To Expect
During a typical treatment, we first apply a clear gel to the skin so that the device handpiece can easily glide across the treatment area. As it does, it will deliver pulses of light energy into the tissue, which enacts a healing response from the body that results in increased collagen and elastin production. At the same time, the light energy breaks down damaged and discolored skin cells responsible for various types of skin pigmentation concerns.
Patients can expect a relaxing and comfortable treatment since the device is equipped with a cooling mechanism that ensures patient comfort during treatments, and at most, you may feel a sensation similar to a rubber band gently snapping against the surface of your skin. A treatment typically takes minutes to complete, and patients can then resume normal daily activities once it’s over.
Who It’s Right For
Patients looking for a professional treatment that can address and effectively eliminate the different types of hyperpigmentation make good candidates for a BBL® Hero™ photofacial.
Additionally, those who want a brighter and more uniform complexion and those who wish to treat skin imperfections on the face and body make good treatment candidates. We can give you more details about this treatment at your initial consultation to determine if it’s right for your skin.
The MOXI® Laser
The MOXI® laser is a prejuvenation treatment that is safe for all skin types. One of the reasons that it is so popular is that it can brighten and revitalize the skin with minimal to no downtime. It’s known for its ability to quickly and safely improve skin texture and tone through a fractional laser treatment.
It can prevent accelerated aging, treat the visible signs of aging, including lines, wrinkles, and sun damage, and can be scheduled year-round so patients can maintain beautiful, bright, glowing skin.
What It Treats
The MOXI® laser can deliver both a preventative and prescriptive treatment. It can maintain skin health in younger patients who don’t have any visible signs of aging but who want to be proactive about preventing aging.
It can also treat existing skin concerns, including dull skin, uneven skin texture, lines, wrinkles, and uneven pigmentation. We can use this laser device to address skin imperfections and concerns on the face, neck, chest, arms, hands, and other body areas as needed.
What To Expect
Patients who schedule this treatment can expect a quick and convenient laser skin resurfacing session, as treatments typically only take 12 to 15 minutes. During the treatment, we’ll glide the laser across your skin’s surface, which results in a slight warming sensation that’s virtually painless. As the laser moves across the skin, it creates tiny fractionated treatment zones that the body responds to with a healing reaction.
As it heals the skin, it increases cellular turnover, promotes cellular regeneration, and eliminates damaged skin cells. The result is brighter, glowing, and healthier skin.
The Benefits of a Customized Treatment Plan
We customize MOXI® laser treatments for each patient’s concerns and can tailor the intensity of the treatment for patients based on their needs. Those who simply want to rejuvenate their skin may only need one treatment.
Conversely, those who want to address more advanced skin concerns may need three to four sessions with four to five weeks between each for optimal results. Once we evaluate your skin in person, we’ll give you details about what your customized treatment plan will look like.
Who It’s Right For
The MOXI® laser was originally designed to meet the needs of younger patients just beginning an anti-aging skincare routine. While it is an effective preventative treatment, it also can meet the needs of patients with visible aging or skin imperfections.
Those who can’t commit to a treatment that requires downtime can benefit from a MOXI® session as it can quickly refresh and revitalize the skin so patients can resume their normal daily activities without planning for social downtime.
