Cosmetic dermatology

Cosmetic dermatology treatment in Minnesota and western Wisconsin

Cosmetic dermatology helps enhance the appearance of your skin. At HealthPartners and Park Nicollet, we help you love the skin you’re in by providing the safest, most effective treatments available for skin rejuvenation. All of our procedures are performed by board-certified dermatologists who use a combination of advanced technology and proven skin products to help you get the best value and results.

Cosmetic dermatology is different than cosmetic surgery because it focuses on enhancing and rejuvenating the skin. We perform non-surgical, non-invasive procedures like Botox, injections and other skin treatments.

Our approach to cosmetic dermatology starts with a cosmetic consultation with one of our board-certified dermatologists. After the consultation, we’ll recommend personalized treatment options based on your skin type and goals.

  • Acne scars

Cosmetic skin treatments we provide

We offer a variety of cosmetic treatments that can improve the appearance of your skin. Some of the treatments you can choose from include:


These are quick, easy treatments that can help revitalize the skin and reduce common signs of aging like sagging skin, fine lines, wrinkles and even double chins. Injectables are noninvasive and require very little downtime. Depending on your goals, we might recommend injectables like Botox® or Kybella®.

Injectable fillers

Fillers can be injected into the face to improve the appearance of thin lips, recessed scars and shallow face contours. Our dermatologists have expert knowledge of the facial structure and will be able to inject fillers in a way that works with your face shape to create more natural results. We offer a variety of injectable fillers, including Juvederm®/Voluma, Restylane-L® and Restylane-Silk®.

Chemical peels

A chemical peel is a facial treatment that helps reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, skin discoloration and rough patches. During a facial peel, a solution is applied to your face to exfoliate the top layers of damaged skin to reveal tighter, brighter skin underneath. Peels come in different strengths, which penetrate different layers of the skin.

Laser treatments

Laser treatments use controlled laser beams and infrared energy to treat skin issues. They are non-invasive treatments with little recovery time. Some laser treatments we provide include:

  • Fraxel laser – ProFractional laser treatment uses a tiny laser beam that pinpoints areas of your skin to treat acne scars, age spots and sun damage. It invigorates your body’s healing process, which stimulates the production of new collagen to plump and smooth the skin. This procedure can create dramatically smoother skin with a very short recovery time.
  • Pulsed Dye Laser (PDL) – This treatment uses a high-powered light beam to correct facial redness caused by dilated blood vessels. It’s a highly effective treatment for redness caused by rosacea, scars and stretch marks.


You can boost the production of collagen in your face, give your skin a youthful radiance and reduce the appearance of scars with microneedling. During the procedure, a dermatologist will go over your skin with tiny needles, creating pin-prick wounds that stimulate the natural healing process to plump the skin. It leaves a redness on your skin that usually heals in two to three days.
