    What to Expect from Your CoolSculpting Experience

    Last updated 1 year ago

    CoolSculpting is a cosmetic procedure that can significantly reduce the fat cells in various parts of the body. If you’re considering liposuction, but would rather not have surgery, then CoolSculpting might be right for you. Talk to Dr. Mesna or his staff about this procedure and review the following information to prepare for your CoolSculpting session.

    CoolSculpting is an ideal cosmetic procedure for many people. If you have stubborn pockets of fat that do not respond to diet and exercise, then CoolSculpting could be the solution. It is not intended as a primary weight loss method but can be used as a means of sculpting your body for a more streamlined figure. Talk to Dr. Mesna or his staff to see if you are a candidate for this innovative new treatment.

    Many people prefer CoolSculpting because there is minimal discomfort, no need for anesthesia, and they can return to work and regular activities immediately after the procedure.. During your session, you’ll sit or lie down comfortably while one of the technicians positions the device over the areas you would like to target. For the first few minutes, you’ll feel temporary sensations of pressure and cold. The length of the session depends on your specific needs; some people require an hour, while others require up to three.

    Since this cosmetic procedure is non-invasive, there is little or no recovery time required. You can return to your normal activities right away. In fact, some people have this procedure done on their lunch break and return to work afterward.

    You’ll notice improvements within three weeks after your treatment and continue to see visible improvements for the next four to six months. CoolSculpting works by freezing the fat cells and allowing your body to naturally eliminate them, which is why it takes some time before you will see the final results. You can ensure the long-term stability of your results by maintaining a healthy weight.

    Understanding the Different Types of Injectables Available

    Last updated 1 year ago

    Never again do you need to tolerate the effects of time on your skin. Patients with fine lines and wrinkles have a myriad of injectable options that can provide immediate and long-term help for aging complexions. Injectable treatments are fast, safe, and effective. If you are considering this minimally invasive procedure, the following information can help you better determine which injectable best suits your skincare needs. 

    Botox has gained great notoriety as a wrinkle-fighting treatment for good reason. In just a matter of minutes, a cosmetic practitioner can administer your Botox injections with minimal discomfort or other side effects. This popular procedure reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by disabling the nerves that cause underlying muscles to wrinkle the skin. Patients who receive Botox treatment can immediately see the results of this procedure, which continues to provide wrinkle reduction benefits for several months after the treatment.

    If you have severe wrinkles that have caused your facial skin to lose volume, you may want to consider Juvederm treatment. This dermal filler uses the natural substance hyaluronic acid to effectively restore volume to wrinkled areas of the face. Juvederm can be particularly helpful for areas around the mouth that suffer from volume loss and creasing over time. Most patients find that their Juvederm treatment maintains its results for at least six months at a time.

    Let Mesna Plastic Surgery transform your appearance in just one appointment. We offer several different injectables, including Botox, Juvederm, Restylane, Perlane, Sculptra and others. Call us today at (952) 927-4556 to schedule a consultation at our Edina or St. Louis Park cosmetic procedure offices.


    An Overview of the HydraFacial

    Last updated 1 year ago

    The everyday responsibilities and stresses of life can leave your skin looking dull. When you have work meetings, school events, and an endless list of at-home chores, finding the time to properly care for your skin can seem impossible. However, if you have a special occasion coming up, you may be wondering how you can quickly and effectively look your best. With the HydraFacial, you no longer need to worry about finding that beautiful glow in time for your big event.

    The Procedure

    The HydraFacial is a comprehensive beauty treatment that can transform your skin in less than an hour. First, your cosmetic practitioner cleans your skin and removes dead skin cells and other contaminants with gentle exfoliation and an acid peel. Should you have any clogged pores, your facial specialist will perform extractions to enhance the clarity and texture of your skin. You then undergo a magnificent hydration process where your skin is bathed in beneficial antioxidants and other soothing aids. Lastly, you receive facial protection to ensure that your rejuvenated appearance lasts well after you finish your treatment.

    The Results

    Unlike other skin enhancement techniques, the HydraFacial requires zero recovery time for patients. This procedure has gained great popularity due to its immediate results. As soon as the treatment is over, your skin will appear radiant and renewed. The HydraFacial also provides essential skincare benefits, as the accumulation of dead skin cells and other pollutants can cause your skin to become increasingly unhealthy.

    The Candidates

    The HydraFacial is an excellent skincare treatment for anyone with a significant event on the horizon. Brides in particular can benefit from the fast-acting results of this procedure. Regardless of whether you have an important date on the calendar, you can undergo the HydraFacial and leave feeling refreshed and reenergized.

    Mesna Plastic Surgery offers the HydraFacial treatment procedure at our Edina and St. Louis Park cosmetic procedure centers. If you want to improve your skin’s tone and texture without having to undergo extensive cosmetic treatment, try the HydraFacial. To schedule an appointment, call (952) 927-4556.

    What Is Rhinoplasty?

    Last updated 1 year ago

    If you want your nose to better complement your other facial features, you may want to consider rhinoplasty. This video explains this cosmetic surgery procedure in greater detail.

    Rhinoplasty, commonly referred to as a nose job, corrects nasal features that fail to enhance the face’s overall appearance. A person may seek this cosmetic procedure if they feel like their nose doesn’t really fit their face. To achieve the patient’s goals, a cosmetic surgeon may either add to or reduce the size of the nose. If you think a rhinoplasty might be right for you, consult Dr. Mesna who can explain your surgical options.

    Mesna Plastic Surgery can help you achieve the aesthetic appearance you desire. To learn more about our cosmetic surgery services, call our Edina office at (952) 927-4556.
