KYBELLA® is a prescription medicine used in adults to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat below the chin (submental fat), also called "double chin." We at Minnesota Dermatology were among the first to be certified to perform this treatment in the Twin Cities area.

BOTOX® and XEOMIN® are one of the most commonly utilized treatments in cosmetic dermatology. They are very effective for eliminating moderate to severe frown lines and wrinkles. At Minnesota Dermatology, "neuromodulators" are both affordable and professionally performed. We have had significant training in optimally performing the injections as well as several years experience performing them. BOTOX® and XEOMIN® treatments usually last 3 months.

Fillers are effective in replacing lost volume of the face and providing scaffolding onto which new collagen can form. The most common fillers are hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers. These have been studied extensively and have been proven to be very safe. The results are often remarkable. BOTOX® can be combined with filler treatments to produce an even more stunning effect. We prefer Juvederm™ for many applications, but we have significant experience with many of the fillers, including Artefill™, Restylane™, Radiesse™, among others. Results can last up to 12 months, but a more typical timeframe is 6-9 months.

Peels can be very effective for eliminating sun spots, age spots, melasma, fine wrinkles, blemishes, and acne scars. They work by eliminating the top layers of your skin, which can be damaged. The peel process triggers the production of new collagen and elastin and, as a result, erases fine lines and wrinkles, evens out skin discoloration, and improves skin texture. There are several different kinds of peels. Two more commonly utilized ones (superficial to medium depth peels) include glycolic and salicylic acid peels. They are typically performed every 2-4 weeks until the desired results are achieved (typically 4-6 treatments). These prescription peels can achieve a lot where other over the counter options have failed. If you are ready to re-energize your face and give it a more youthful glow, call to schedule your peels today.


SkinPen, a form of microneedling or microtherapy, is a great treatment for resurfacing, evening out complexion, and for treating acne scars.


PDL, IPL, fractionated ablative and non-ablative lasers are all utilized to achieve optimal results. Whether one is looking for a more aggressive resurfacing, treatment of rosacea, hemangiomas, freckles, or lines, we probably have a laser that can get the job done, safely, and with minimal downtime in most cases.


There are many other cosmetic procedures that Dr. Ecker and his team routinely perform, including mole removal, birth mark removal, and much more. Call today: 612.486.4200.
