    Understanding the Differences Between Microdermabrasion and Chemical Peels

    Last updated 1 year ago

    Plastic surgery is a great way to revitalize your facial contours and reduce the signs of aging. However, not all individuals are able to undergo surgery due to medical conditions, while others simply cannot afford the downtime. Fortunately, the cosmetic surgeons with Mesna Plastic Surgery offer a wide variety of non-invasive treatment options. This article will take a closer look at the differences between microdermabrasion treatments and chemical peels.

    • Microdermabrasion

    Microdermabrasion is a treatment method that utilizes a handheld device to blow fine crystals across the surface of the skin before gently suctioning any excess crystals and exfoliated skin cells away using a vacuum attachment.  Many plastic surgeons recommend microdermabrasion to patient suffering from minor areas of discoloration, light acne scarring, and evidence of sun damage. In addition, microdermabrasion treatments have been shown to increase collagen production for even better results over time. Unlike other treatment methods, microdermabrasion does not require any healing time and allows patients to return to their normal activities right away once the procedure is complete. However, some patients experience a pink or reddened appearance which should dissipate quickly.

    • Chemical Peels

    Chemical peels are another non-invasive skin rejuvenation treatment option designed to improve the look and texture of your skin. There are many types of chemical peels—including light peels, medium peels, and deep peels—all of which differ based on the types of chemicals used and depth of the skin treated. For example, peels may utilize chemicals including glycolic acid, salicylic acid, lactic acid, phenol or trichloroacetic acid. While the results will vary based on the chemical used, chemical peels are generally a great option for individuals interested in reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, age spots, dark patches of skin, mild acne scars, and current acne breakouts.

    Whether you are interested in microdermabrasion or a chemical peel, the cosmetic surgeons with Mesna Plastic Surgery are here to help. Give our Edina office a call today at (952) 927-4556 to set up an appointment with our office. We also offer liposuction, tummy tucks, and breast implants. 

    What to Expect After Getting a Facelift?

    Last updated 1 year ago

    A facelift is a cosmetic surgery procedure that is used to tighten the skin along the face, remove excess fat deposits, and reduce the appearance of wrinkles. This video examines the recovery period following a facelift.

    Your face will be dressed in compression bandages immediately after the procedure to control swelling and help your face adjust to the new contours. This bandage will typically be removed the day after surgery and replaced with a Velcro bandage that can be taken off while eating and bathing. To learn more, watch the complete clip.

    Who is a Good Candidate for Liposuction?

    Last updated 1 year ago

    Liposuction, sometimes referred to as lipoplasty, is a minimally invasive plastic surgery procedure that is designed to remove localized fat deposits from specific areas of the body. However, not all individuals are good candidates for cosmetic surgery. Find out if you are a good candidate for liposuction by considering the qualifications discussed in this article.

    • In Good Health

    As with any other cosmetic surgery procedure, all candidates for liposuction should be in good health with realistic expectations regarding the results. It is important to discuss any preexisting health conditions with your surgeon during your initial consultation, such as heart disease, liver disease, kidney disease, diabetes, or bleeding disorders, as these may interfere with your candidacy. You will also want to notify your surgeon if you have had a negative experience with a specific type of anesthesia in the past so that your surgeon can plan appropriately.

    • Near Goal Weight

    Unlike a tummy tuck, which is designed to remove excess skin and large amounts of fat, liposuction works to remove smaller fat deposits that are unresponsive to diet and exercise. For this reason, most candidates for liposuction should be within 10-to-15 pounds of their goal weight, with adequate skin elasticity. If you are suffering from fat deposits in your hips, thighs, buttocks, abdomen, calves, arms, back, or chest, liposuction may be the answer.

    • Committed to Maintaining Results

    It is important that all candidates for liposuction are committed to maintaining the results of their procedure to reduce the chances of weight gain and postoperative complications. This includes following a healthy, well-balanced diet, exercising regularly, and meeting with your surgeon for all follow-up visits.

    The best way to determine if liposuction is the right procedural option for your needs is to consult with your cosmetic surgeon.
