The staff at Lipo Laser Centers of America prioritizes treatments that help clients shed weight to improve both their looks and their moods. It specializes in noninvasive lipolaser treatments, which aim gentle laser light at stomachs, arms, and thighs. A menu of body wraps infused with detoxifying vitamins and oils also work to slim and tighten bodies while simultaneously conditioning the skin. For those seeking to revamp their lifestyles as well as their exteriors, a team of nutritionists dispenses thoughtful, custom advice, while acupuncturists and massage therapists ease stress and anxiety.
Overseen by Dr. Scott Ross, a cosmetic surgeon with more than 25 years of professional experience, the Minneapolis Center for Cosmetic and Laser Surgery and SkinKlinic of Edina collectively treat more than 9,000 patients every year with a combination of surgical, non-invasive, and cosmetic laser treatments. The health-care professionals and paramedical aestheticians enlist Mensa–worthy technology and techniques as they reinvigorate the epidermis or invent entirely new looks. Before asking patients to commit to a particular treatment, the team invites prospective clients in for a complimentary 20-minute consultation to learn more about the procedure, the technology, and the history of the tongue depressor.
Board-certified plastic surgeon Jonathan Witzke earned his stripes in surgical centers and hospitals before becoming the namesake of Witzke Plastic Surgery, where he and his savvy staff perform an array of invasive and noninvasive procedures. Cosmetic concerns fade with simple IPL facials, Botox injections, liposuction, and breast augmentation procedures. For injured hands, certified therapist Joan Collins acts on more than two decades of experience with procedures that aim to quell carpal tunnel syndrome, rheumatoid arthritis, or a thumb war injury.
Wide, youthful-looking eyes free of puffy bags. Smoother skin. A taut physique free of cellulite. These are just a few of the physical upgrades offered at Shu Cosmetic Surgery, a practice helmed by medical director Dr. Steven Shu, his physician assistant Katie McClellan, and his team of medical aestheticians. Visitors to the modern, inviting practice can choose from treatments such as minimally invasive liposuction, natural breast augmentation, and mini face-lifts that lift away deep fine lines. At an onsite med spa, the physician assistant and medical aestheticians perform nonsurgical treatments including chemical peels and laser hair removal.
At Anew Aesthetic Medical Center, Dr. Vicky Hagstrom provides realistic hair-restoration options. Her individualized, minimally invasive treatments include transplants with the NeoGraft system, low-level light therapies, herbal supplements, and the LaserCap, a portable device designed to help waning follicles regenerate.
When she isn't restoring hair, Dr. Vicky works to restore the youthful glow of clients' skin through injections of wrinkle-effacing Belotero gel or Botox. She also tightens skin and works to reduce cellulite with the Vaser Shape, which breaks down fatty tissue by generating heat beneath the skin.
At locations across the country, the technicians of Lipo Laser Centers of America rely on advanced technology to produce the beautifying results of surgery, only without the scalpels. Using a combination of suction, laser energy, and cooling techniques, their FDA-approved Cynosure TriActive machines can eliminate cellulite on the thighs and buttocks, while also massaging and soothing muscles. When paired with 15- to 20-minute vibration plate sessions, their low-level lipo-laser devices can help bodies shed fat and inches. In fact, after only two lipo-laser sessions, patients may observe up to two-inch reductions from their waistlines and a newfound ability to squeeze themselves through skeleton keyholes.
