Unless put to work, lasers expend their boundless energy on the delinquent pursuits of harassing movie-goers and flash-dancing in seedy nightclubs. Keep lasers out of trouble with today's Groupon: for $199, you get a photofacial treatment at SkinKlinic of Edina, part of the Minneapolis Center for Cosmetic and Laser Surgery (a $495 value).
Harnessing 25 years of professional skincare experience, Dr. Scott Ross aims to ease the appearance of sun damage, facial veins, and age spots in medical-grade photofacial treatments applied with a handheld applicator. The laser's short bursts of light energy cause a mini thermocoagulation of the unwelcome blemish, which is then slowly absorbed by the body's internal roll of paper towels. A sensation like the snap of a rubber band may be felt, and some patients elect to have a topical anesthetic applied prior to treatment. Most clients will require one to four treatments, and four-week intervals between treatments are recommended.
SkinKlinic of Edina
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.
