What are My Non-Surgical Treatment Options?

CoolSculpting®


CoolSculpting® is an exciting alternative to liposuction that can remove isolated fat pockets around the body without the need for surgery, incisions, or downtime. Many individuals struggle with areas of localized fat that remain resistant to dieting and exercise. CoolSculpting®, a cutting-edge means of selective fat reduction, uses controlled cooling technology to eliminate fat cells in the abdomen, back, thighs, flanks, chin, and knee area for natural-looking results. Individuals seeking a non-surgical method of body contouring can achieve a 20 to 30 percent reduction in the appearance of fat bulges in one session, with more sessions available upon request to target additional areas or enhance the final outcome of treatment.

Venus Legacy™

Primary indicators of age often include a loss of skin elasticity. This often leads to the appearance of sagging skin and wrinkles. Venus Legacy™ is an innovative non-surgical treatment that uses multi-polar radio frequency and pulsed electromagnetic fields to stimulate the body’s own natural collagen and elastin production. The Venus Legacy™ technology can also be used to break down fat cells, achieving a reduction in mild to moderate cellulite through the application of heat. As a result, many patients experience a smoother, tighter and more contoured look in the treated areas.

Injectables

Facial fillers and cosmetic injectables can be excellent treatment options to attain the smooth, full, and younger-looking skin you desire. The many options available at our practice, which include BOTOX® Cosmetic, Jeuveau™, Restylane®, Xeomin®, Belotero Balance®, and JUVÉDERM®, are formulated to erase indicators of age based on the depth of your concerns. Common areas of treatment include frown lines, flat cheeks, thin lips, nasolabial folds (“parentheses” wrinkles), and marionette lines, among other injection sites. With injections typically taking no longer than 30 to 45 minutes and requiring no significant recovery time, cosmetic injectables can be a convenient and timely treatment to rejuvenate your facial features.

Lip Flip

A Lip Flip is an advanced lip augmentation technique that can soften the pout and enhance the lip shape by relaxing targeted muscles around the mouth, allowing the lip to naturally roll outward. This is done with very conservative injections of a cosmetic neurotoxin, such as BOTOX® Cosmetic, Jeuveau™, or Xeomin®. As no lip fillers are used during treatment, a Lip Flip can be a simple and effective way to make the lips appear more voluminous without actually adding volume.

SkinPen® Microneedling

Microneedling refers to a minimally invasive skin rejuvenation treatment that catalyzes the body’s natural wound-healing mechanisms and revives collagen production for glowing, younger-looking skin. The process can typically be used on all skin types and is designed to improve the appearance of acne scars, as well as to smooth, tighten, and firm aging skin. The SkinPen® treatment is customizable and can be used on multiple body areas and usually requires minimal downtime.

For women who seek to rejuvenate their feminine wellness, THERMIVa® is a non-surgical procedure that uses radiofrequency energy to reduce laxity caused by stretching of the vaginal muscles. Patients who wish to improve the cosmetic effects of the natural aging process, childbirth, and menopause on their intimate areas may be able to find a solution in this non-invasive vaginal tightening treatment. THERMIVa® can also increase sexual satisfaction, increase moisture, and may even decrease mild incontinence. Using gentle heat application from controlled radiofrequency energy, THERMIVa® is designed to revive collagen production in the treated area and gradually tighten vaginal tissue with no downtime.

Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy (PRP) for Hair Loss

For men and women who experience thinning hair, platelet-rich plasma therapy is a state-of-the-art treatment that can stimulate inactive follicles for increased hair growth as well as hair that is thicker and fuller. The process takes advantage of the natural growth factors found in your plasma to raise hair count in the treated area and thicken hair follicles. As PRP therapy is designed to reinvigorate cell growth and healing mechanisms, it can also be used in conjunction with SkinPen® microneedling to rejuvenate aging or damaged skin.

Liquid Rhinoplasty

Wishing you could straighten bumps in the nasal bridge without major surgery? A liquid rhinoplasty is a non-surgical technique that uses strategically combined dermal fillers to improve the shape and/or appearance of the nose. These hyaluronic acid-based fillers can augment certain aspects of the nasal structure to achieve a more proportionate, symmetrical, or attractive result. What’s more, this nose recontouring can be achieved without downtime or anesthesia.

Sculptra® Aesthetic BBL

Interested in improving your buttock contour? At our Minneapolis practice, our plastic surgeon offers a non-surgical “Sculptra BBL” to add volume and fullness to the butt without invasiveness or downtime! Short for “Brazilian Butt Lift,” a Sculptra BBL is designed to augment the butt using meticulous injections of Sculptra® Aesthetic, a collagen stimulant.
