Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal is a procedure in which hair is destroyed by utilizing a long pulse laser. This process has been designed and perfected through years of research and experience.

The laser parameters are carefully determined by examining the anatomy of the hair follicle and precisely matching the laser light and pulse duration to the follicle size, depth and location. This process prevents the regrowth of the hair in the designated treatment area.

Laser hair removal is performed by a specially-trained laser specialist who distributes the light of a long pulse laser onto the skin. The laser works by disabling hairs that are in their active growth cycle at the time of treatment. Since other hairs will enter their growth cycle at different times, 6 treatments are necessary to disable all of the follicles in a given area.

Our lasers can treat all skin types, including tan skin, safely and effectively.

BOTOX Cosmetic

Minneapolis-St. Paul BOTOX® Cosmetic with locations in Eden Prairie and Maple Grove Maybe you heard a friend talk about her experience wih BOTOX® Cosmetic—and you think your friend looks great—but before you get treated, you’d like to know more about it first.

BOTOX® Cosmetic is a non-surgical aesthetic treatment for moderate to severe frown lines between the brows in people ages 18 to 65. BOTOX® Cosmetic works by reducing the contractions of the muscles that cause those persistent frown lines that have developed over time.

What to expect: The day of your appointment. Allow time before your appointment for filling out forms and for consulting with the doctor or a member of his or her staff. If it’s your initial visit, you may first meet with your doctor personally or a staff member. Many doctors have on-staff licensed aestheticians or nurses who are trained in skin care and skin care procedures who can answer many of your questions.

You may also be asked about your expectations for treatment and if you have any allergies or any condition that wouldn’t make you a good candidate for BOTOX® Cosmetic. (See the full prescribing information for more details.)

Before the procedure. You’ll probably be seated in a reclining chair, much like you find in a dentist’s office. No anesthesia is required, although your injector may choose to numb the area with a cold pack or anesthetic cream.

The procedure. Your injector will determine where to administer the injections by examining your ability to move certain muscles in your brow area. The entire BOTOX® Cosmetic injection procedure takes approximately 10 minutes.

After the procedure. There’s no recovery time needed. You’re ready to get on with your day! The most common side effects following injection include temporary eyelid droop and nausea. Localized pain, infection, inflammation, tenderness, swelling, redness, and/or bleeding/bruising may be associated with the injection. Patients with certain neuromuscular disorders such as ALS, myasthenia gravis, or Lambert-Eaton syndrome may be at increased risk of serious side effects.

Seeing results. Within days, you may notice an improvement in the moderate to severe frown lines between your brows that can last up to 4 months. Results may vary.

Juvederm

THE POWER TO DEFY with the JUVÉDERM® family of fillers

What is JUVÉDERM® made from? The JUVÉDERM® collection of fillers is made from hyaluronic acid (HA). What’s interesting about HA is that it’s a natural substance in the skin that delivers nutrients, helps the skin retain moisture and softness, and adds volume. Each product in the JUVÉDERM® collection of fillers is made from a modified form of HA.

What should you expect? Your aesthetic specialist administers the treatment during a brief office visit. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC, JUVÉDERM® XC, and JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC contain lidocaine to help minimize discomfort during treatment. If you’re still concerned about treatment discomfort, your aesthetic specialist may offer additional anesthetic

miraDry

miraDry is a safe, clinically proven, FDA-cleared solution for significantly reducing underarm sweat. It’s an outpatient procedure performed in your physician’s office, and it doesn’t involve any surgical incisions or cuts. miraDry works by delivering precisely controlled electromagnetic energy to the underarm area, eliminating the underarm sweat glands.

Two procedures are typically recommended, 3 months apart, to maximize the quality and duration of results. Each appointment generally lasts about an hour.

miraDry is the only FDA-cleared procedure that provides a lasting reduction of underarm sweat in a completely non-invasive way. Other treatment options, including antiperspirants and toxins, aim to temporarily disable the sweat glands for varying lengths of time – requiring repeat treatments to maintain effectiveness. Other options involve surgery, which poses inherent risks.

The miraDry system eliminates the underarm sweat glands, and the sweat glands don’t grow back after treatment. This results in a dramatic and lasting reduction of underarm sweat. In a clinical study, patients experienced an average of 82% reduction in underarm sweat.1

You should notice a reduction in sweat immediately after treatment. As with any medical procedure, results will vary by person. Secondary effects include underarm hair and odor reduction. Ask a miraDry physician if the miraDry procedure is right for you.

Envy Skin Clinic is the number one provider in the nation.

Body FX

WHAT IS BODYFX?

BodyFX is a new, long lasting, non-invasive solution to reduce the unsightly appearance of cellulite leading to improvements in your body contour. BodyFX will reshape your body to provide a non-surgical alternative to liposuction. BodyFX is a perfect solution to get rid of your mummy tummy or muffin top.

HOW DOES BODYFX WORK?

BodyFX uses a combination of different clinically proven modalities including radiofrequency energy, deep tissue heating and suction coupled negative pressure. The radio-frequency energy distributes heat to the skin and underlying fat, causing the tissues to heat and contract. The vacuum and controlled energy pulses then work synergistically to provide beautiful body contouring results.

WHAT KIND OF POST PROCEDURE CARE IS REQUIRED?

There is absolutely no downtime for BodyFX. It can be a lunch time procedure. Patients will notice redness and warmth in the treated area which will subside after a few hours. This warmth is equivalent to the sensation felt after a deep tissue massage and will not prevent anyone from their regular activities.

HOW MANY SESSIONS ARE REQUIRED

It is recommended that weekly sessions are performed over an eight week period. Gradual improvements in the treatment area can be seen following the first few treatments – with the skin’s surface feeling smoother and softer immediately.
