Nonsurgical Surgery Minneapolis
Injectables and dermal fillers are fast, effective nonsurgical treatments that can rejuvenate your appearance. BOTOX® Cosmetic disables nerve impulses that lead to crows feet and wrinkles between the eyebrows. Dermal fillers like JUVÉDERM™ add volume to deep lines and wrinkles, dramatically reducing signs of aging for several months. Our team can help you determine which type of injectable or filler will best meet your goals.
Laser hair removal is a non-invasive option for removing body hair. At Mesna Plastic Surgery, we use advanced lasers that discourage follicles in targeted areas from producing hair. During this treatment, Dr. Gregory Mesna administers laser light to the legs, bikini line, face, armpits, and more. By undergoing regular touch-up appointments, you can maintain smooth, beautiful results.
Microdermabrasion reduces the appearance of lines, wrinkles, stretch marks, acne scars, and more by using tiny crystal particles to buff away the top layer of skin. This treatment reveals younger, healthier-looking skin, and prompts the production of new underlying skin tissues containing collagen and elastin, further rejuvenating the look of your skin.
At-home care is essential in maintaining healthy, beautiful skin. At Mesna Plastic Surgery, we provide a full spectrum of products and tools that you can use every day to achieve glowing, youthful skin. Our products provide essential nutrients as well as protection from everyday toxins you encounter. Whether you need a gentle makeup remover, moisturizer, sunscreen, or other treatments, we have premium products that work with your skin.
Even with regular diet and exercise, our bodies can naturally retain fat deposits in certain areas such as the stomach, hips, and thighs. CoolSculpting® is a non-surgical treatment that targets fat cells using innovative cooling technology. The CoolSculpting® device is applied on top of your skin without incisions. It cools fat tissue, causing it to shrink. After several weeks, your body naturally expels these fat cells, creating a toned, tightened look.
Laser skin resurfacing can treat a variety of skin imperfections. This treatment can reduce the prominence of fine lines and wrinkles, birthmarks, uneven skin tone, and more. We have lasers that can treat deeper layers the skin to create more dramatic results, while other lasers can be used for surface treatment, producing results much like microdermabrasion. Your laser resurfacing plan will be customized to your specific needs and goals.
The HydraFacial® is one of the best kept secrets for a “same-day-glow” skin care treatment. The benefits are multifold and comprehensive, resulting from exfoliation, cleansing, moisturizing, and polishing. Treatment is often enhanced with gentle peels and serums which can be customized for many different types of skin. HydraFacial® treatment takes less than 20 minutes, is painless and relaxing, and has no downtime so you can immediately return to work or another activity.
Non-invasive Ultherapy® utilizes ultrasound technology to stimulate your skin’s natural collagen production. During treatment, ultrasound therapy is transmitted to the deep layers of your skin and the muscle beneath – the same tissues that are targeted during face lift surgery. Ultherapy® can be applied to a patient’s chin, neck, eyebrow area, and even chest, significantly reducing the look of wrinkles and sagging for six months or more.
We offer different levels of chemical peels to help our patients achieve beautiful, radiant, youthful-looking skin. Chemical peels can be used to treat the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, sun spots, age spots, acne, scarring, and skin discoloration. With light chemical peels, there is typically little to no downtime involved, and patients can often resume their daily activities immediately following treatment.
The Eclipse MicroPen™ is a micro-needling device that is used for collagen induction therapy. Micro-needling creates controlled micro-injuries to the outermost layer of skin to promote collagen and elastin growth, which revitalizes the skin and provides a younger-looking appearance. The Eclipse MicroPen™ can be used to treat fine lines, and acne scars, and can provide an overall enhancement of the skin’s appearance.
New to our practice, miraDry® can permanently eliminate excess underarm perspiration and odor in one to two treatments. This non-surgical procedure is approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to safely reduce or remove sweat glands so you no longer need to worry about unsightly moisture or stained clothes. MiraDry® is used to treat patients with hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating), as well as those who simply prefer to stay cool under pressure.
VelaShape® combines several technologies in one treatment to help patients diminish the appearance of cellulite, slim problem areas, and improve skin texture. This safe, non-invasive procedure can be used on the abdomen, thighs, buttocks, and other areas that contain fat pockets and dimpled skin. Over a series of treatments, the tissue will produce new collagen for a noticeably trimmer appearance and a new sense of self-confidence.
UltraShape® is an FDA-approved treatment that removes stubborn fat from the stomach, hips, thighs, and other areas. It uses ultrasound technology to eliminate fat tissue, which is then naturally expelled from the body. There is no downtime, and you can expect to see results in as little as two weeks. Treatment is virtually painless, and results in no swelling or bruising.
Profound is a minimally invasive bipolar RF system with patented Real Time Temperature Control that utilizes 5 pairs of micro-needle electrodes, deployed into the dermis, to precisely deliver fractionated thermal injuries in the deep reticular dermis, where the concentration of collagen is the highest. Fractionated thermal zones are created within the dermis, without thermal impact to the epidermis. Thermal injury to treated areas stimulates would healing, dermal remodeling and new elastin, collagen, and hyaluronic acid formation, resulting in visible skin improvement.
