MINNEAPOLIS, MN--(Marketwired - Sep 4, 2014) - Recent statistics from the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) indicate non-surgical procedures account for 83 percent of all cosmetic treatments. Recognizing this growing trend towards minimally invasive aesthetic enhancement, Minneapolis facial plastic surgeon Jess Prischmann, MD provides comprehensive customized treatment plans utilizing lasers, injectables, and advanced skin care techniques to non-surgically achieve more youthful, natural-looking results for her patients.
Throughout a three-part blog series on minimally invasive facial rejuvenation options, Dr. Prischmann details the treatments that often provide significant aesthetic improvement without the use of surgery. In the first post titled, "Non-Surgical Aesthetic Enhancement: Dermal Fillers and Injectables," she explores the versatility of cosmetic injectables and dermal fillers in diminishing common signs of aging, particularly lines and wrinkles. In regard to administering injectable treatments, Dr. Prischmann maintains a "less is more" approach: "A natural face is a pretty face. You should be able to look at a face and never know that the person has filler."
In the second blog post titled, "Non-Surgical Aesthetic Enhancement: Skin and Laser Treatments," Dr. Prischmann expands on available laser and skin care treatments, focusing on the rejuvenation effects of laser skin resurfacing and advanced chemical peels. Often recommending a combination approach, the Minneapolis facial plastic surgeon may employ multiple techniques when addressing specific concerns, including:
- Acne scars
- Brown spots
- Skin inelasticity
In the final post of the series titled, "Non-Surgical Aesthetic Enhancement: Laser Hair Removal," Dr. Prischmann explains how advanced laser technology has allowed her to reduce excess or undesired facial and body hair on a variety of skin types. Dispelling common misinformation, she says, "It is a great misconception to think that all lasers work equally for hair removal. It is also a misconception to think that the same laser settings work on everyone." Utilizing two state-of-the-art lasers, Dr. Prischmann can often accommodate patients from many different ethnic backgrounds.
Ultimately, when seeking a non-surgical treatment to address one's cosmetic concerns, Dr. Prischmann reminds patients that practices often use proprietary terminology, adding that a particular treatment at one office could be called something different at another. "The lingo of minimally invasive treatments is an alphabet soup: IPL, BBL, MLP, etc. Also, everyone tries to brand their own treatments, so you really need to ask exactly what you are getting."
