Welcome to Non Surgical Clinic of the Twin Cities

About Us

Our Clinic Approach

Our Nonsurgical Clinic of the Twin Cities practices functional medicine. There is no screening test that is more efficient, effective, and affordable than a comprehensive blood chemistry panel to quickly assess the degree of health in a patient. We see a lot of women and men with underlying metabolic and hormonal issues that conventional medicine either ignores, blatantly overlooks, or ineffectually manages with medication, which greatly hampers efforts of obtaining their desired results with proper diet and exercise alone. In our clinic, we do not diagnose nor treat any diseases, rather we support the patient in the functional range of health and wellness. In turn, we find that our patients not only have a better quality of life, but they also look and feel amazing.  So how does our clinic get the results we get without medication or surgery? We simply do not only apply aesthetic treatments. We address the patient metabolically, neurologically, nutritionally, and emotionally. With proper assessment, then treatment we are able to provide excellent service with life-changing and long-lasting results. experienced medical professionals put your healing needs first. We are proud to provide a high quality level of customer service, medical experience, and commitment to health and wellness to all our patients. Our goal is to make you feel better as quickly as possible.

We believe that body contouring with the Zerona Laser is better than surgical liposuction as this technology yields dramatic results in fat reduction and reshaping without the risks and complications of surgery. At the Nonsurgical Clinic of the Twin Cities in Maple Grove, MN, our team puts the Zerona Laser to work to target your fat zones with precision. The laser has multi-faceted positioning power, which allows you to select the areas where you want ultimate body sculpting results. Approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to emulsify fat (also implemented in laser-assisted liposuction), the Zerona Laser will melt your fat, which will be eliminated through regular bodily waste cleansing processes. In a 2-week period, patients that have had 6 treatments with the Zerona laser lost an average of 2 – 4 inches. The Zerona low-level laser therapy is considered a safe substitute to invasive procedures, such as the tumescent liposuction, lipodissolve, and other spot fat reduction devices. If you would like to learn more about body sculpting with our team in the Twin Cities area, please contact us today for your first consultation.     How Is It Different Than LIPO?     When you consult with a plastic surgeon for surgical liposuction, you will soon see all of the risks and benefits from the procedure. Liposuction requires you to be put under (general anesthesia, local anesthesia, or IV sedation) so that your plastic surgeon can make an incision in the skin near the area of fat cells you want removed, and insert a surgical tube called a cannula to suction the fat out. The incision will have to be sutured closed.  The main differences between liposuction and the Zerona Laser is that our treatment is painless, scarless, and you will have no down time. All of the laser energy is applied externally. While traditional liposuction offers dramatic results, many individuals simply do not want, nor do they need surgery. Zerona is a perfect option for many of these patients. How Does It Work?  You will come to our office for a 40-minute session to basically relax and unwind from your day. There is no need for painkillers, numbing agents, sedation, or anesthesia of any kind. Your Aesthetic Technician or Physician will position you under the laser on the front side of your treatment area for 20 minutes, and leave the room. He or she will return to reset the machine to complete a 20-minute session on the back side of the treatment area. It is totally painless as the low-level laser stimulates the fat to liquefy it within the cell. Then, the fat will be transported to the lymphatic system, and ultimately flushed out of the body as waste. Once your session is complete, you don't have to wait to resume your normal, daily activities. You will have no pain, bruising, or swelling.  We do ask that patients follow these instructions after the treatment session: •Drink 8 – 10 glasses of water a day to stay hydrated •Continue to exercise and eat a healthy diet •Abstain from drinking alcohol and caffeine     Results     Results will be different for each patient. With the Zerona Laser, we typically see amazing results for 2 different types of people: •Patients at their ideal weight, who are following a healthy diet and exercise regime, but want to eliminate localized fat pockets or decrease their body fat percentage •Patients who want to take the first step in their weight loss journey with the Zerona Laser to "jump start" the fat melting processes and see slimming results faster while losing weight  How long do results last? This all depends on how the patient maintains their weight, eats a healthy diet, and exercise on a regular basis to see long-term results.      FOr Our Weight Loss Patients     When you are overfed, yet undernourished, your body is considered to be in a dysfunctional state. Instead of being a fat-burning machine, you crave sugar and store it as fat instead. We want you to regain control again. While the Zerona Laser is an extraordinary tool for fat and weight loss in itself, when you combine the it with functional medical practices to correct underlying imbalances and disorders, you can get back better metabolic function, and maximum benefits the laser has to offer. Some of our weight loss patients that utilize the Zerona Laser report to losing weight (10 – 15 pounds), and (6) inches in just 3 weeks.


At the Nonsurgical Clinic of the Twin Cities, we offer an innovative facial rejuvenation technology with the OxyGeneo Super 3-in-1 Facial for all of our patients. All skin tones and sensitive skin patients can benefit from this safe and effective treatment. If you would like to reduce the hyper pigmentation on your face, regain a radiant glow to your skin, firm and tighten your skin and pores, soften wrinkles, and hydrate, then this treatment may be just what you need in facial rejuvenation. We will roll the OxyGeneo over your face to exfoliate the skin, which will naturally oxygenate the skin, and go deep within the layers of your damaged dermis. This will provide your facial areas with an installation of key nutrients for healthy skin. We offer this treatment after an initial consultation at our Maple Grove, MN office.Having a big sale, on-site celebrity, or other event? Be sure to announce it so everybody knows and gets excited about it. This treatment can be completed within an hour, and you will leave looking better than you walked into our office at Nonsurgical Clinic of the Twin Cities. There really is no down time to the OxyGeneo Super 3-in-1 Facial, and you will not leave our office red, peeling, or uncomfortable. During your appointment, you will lie back and relax while an Aesthetic Technician rolls the OxyGeneo Super 3-in-1 Facial device over the surface of your face. It will deeply penetrate the layers of your skin, removing dull skin, and infusing the skin with better hydration, and in an accelerated position for collagen production than ever before.  The OxyGeneo Super 3-in-1 Facial generally is used for the following skin conditions: •Acne and acne scars •Hyper pigmentation spots •Redness in the skin •Rosacea •Wrinkles •Sun spots and sun damage •Age spots •Removal of dead skin cells •Clear blocked pores •Dry, dehydrated skin •Loss of collagen •Puffy under eye bags     Results     Once you have had the OxyGeneo Super 3-in-1 Facial treatment, you will immediately see a change in your facial skin. You will begin to see less redness, more hydration the skin, pore clarity, and decreased hyperpigmentation. You will not leave this office looking like you had a harsh skin treatment.     Other Considerations     You can combine the OxyGeneo Super 3-in-1 Facial with other facial rejuvenation treatments. Your Aesthetician may suggest that you add a OxyGeneo Super 3-in-1 Facial before or after having a harsher treatment such as a chemical peel or skin tightening treatments. Again, this will depend on your personalized treatment plan to obtain the glowing, beautiful skin you deserve.


With the new, revolutionary Verjú Laser technology by Erchonia, or the TriPollar STOP radio frequency skin tightening, our patients with loose skin at Nonsurgical Clinic of the Twin Cities in Maple Grove, MN can tighten their skin without surgery. Pain-free and noninvasive, this treatment is an ideal alternative to surgeries and expensive crèmes to remove or attempt to tighten loose skin, and unattractive dimpling.   Most people have loose skin somewhere on their body at some point in their lives. Our skin tightening treatments can treat all areas on the body, such as: the jowls, chin, neck, hips, thighs, buttocks, and knees, and see results within 2 weeks. If you would like to learn how skin tightening can improve and slim your features, please call and schedule a private consultation today.     About the Technology     About Verjú  Using low level laser therapy (LLLT), the Verjú stimulates fat cells, which make pores in the cellular walls. Fat (lipid material) is released through the openings the laser made, resulting in the effected cell to shrink to a smaller size. Since 2013, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has cleared this laser as a safe and effective technology. While you lie comfortably on our massage table, an Aesthetic Technician passes the lasers over your desired area (usually the lower abdomen, thighs, and buttocks) in 15 – 45-minute sessions with long-term results with maintenance sessions.  About TriPollar STOP  As it is powered by radio frequency energy through electrodes that penetrate your layers of skin with precision without pain or over treatment. The device is rolled over the skin. It will rejuvenate the skin, and increase collagen production giving your skin a fresher appearance. At first, the STOP device can be used 2 – 3 times a week for 6 – 8 weeks. After the initial treatment sessions, we advise our patients to return once every 2 – 4 weeks for maintenance sessions.     Benefits of Skin Tightening    •Verjú and the TriPollar STOP are both noninvasive •No down time after the session •No side effects from treatment •Local and systemic slimming •Safe and effective skin tightening •No pain or bruising •Results within 2 weeks •Reduces cellulite on thighs and buttocks.


Did you know that your brain demands at least 20% of the body's oxygen supply? It does, and the quality of the oxygen you deliver to your cells matters. With air pollution, carcinogens in your food and drinking water, all the chemicals in cleaning products, and much more impact our health in very negative ways. We offer oxygen therapy with EB-PRO ION Therapy at the Nonsurgical Clinic of the Twin Cities, to help detoxify you from all of these toxins that are contributing to illness. When your brain and bodily cells do not get the quality oxygen that they need, you could experience health problems like lower immune system, sleep apnea, mood swings, depression, low motivation, decreased energy, fatigue, restlessness, poor concentration, and much more.  Unlike bodily muscles, your brain cannot store energy. It needs a steady flow of nutrients and oxygen to function normally. If you would like to learn more about oxygen deficiency, and how you can help increase positive effects from oxygen therapy, please call and schedule an appointment with us today.     Benefits of Oxygen Therapy     At Nonsurgical Clinic of the Twin Cities, we recommend oxygen therapy for so many great benefits, such as: •Bolster your immune system •Decrease anxiety and stress •Sleep better •Reduce painful tension headaches •Cleanse your blood of toxins •Increase concentration and brain activity •Boost your memory capacity •Upgrade to a higher level of energy and stamina •Enhance strength •Cleanse your blood of toxins and improve cardiovascular activity •Ward off lactic acid accumulation.

Soft Tissue Healing

Individuals who experience trauma or injury to the skin often suffer from severe pain, scarring, and visible surface damage that can take months to heal. Some injuries, such as burns, serious wounds, and scarring after surgery require a more advanced approach to healing to ensure a healthy and functional outcome, as well as one that is aesthetically appealing. The Nonsurgical Clinic of the Twin Cities is proud to offer Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT), which causes damaged tissue to heal faster. It can be applied to the skin, the underlying muscle, as well as nerve tissue, and has been shown to provide a healing process that is about 66% faster than many of the other treatments on the market. LLLT is used to soften the appearance of scars, to help heal burns and wounds that lead to visible damage on the skin, as well as many other conditions, such as inflammation and edema.     What Does LLLT Do?     While Low-Level Laser Therapy has been around for several decades, newer advancements have recently evolved and today uses cold therapy that directly targets wound healing. To better explain how it works, LLLT works at the cellular level, meaning it stimulates a micro-structure within the cells to produce larger amounts of ATP, the chemical produced by human cells. When more ATP is present at the cell level, soft tissue heals faster. In return, relief comes quicker, and the damaged area regenerates new tissue growth resulting in both a natural appearance and a normal function. Our office commonly uses LLLT for burns to the skin, wounds caused by falls, cuts, or other accidents, scarring after surgery, or any other visible damage to the soft tissue of the skin's layering.  There are numerous injuries and conditions that can benefit from Low Level Laser Therapy, including: •Surgical Wounds •Acute Wounds (such as rough scrapes, cuts, or sharp edges that tears the skin and nearby tissue) •Burns •Severe Inflammation •Joint Pain •Joint Disorders.

Medical Weight Loss

In our office at Nonsurgical Clinic of the Twin Cities, we begin by treating each patient as a whole person, not merely the symptom. With functional medicine, we will focus on the body system's function over the diseased state. Our medical weight loss services have successfully helped more than 2000 patients lose weight, and keep it off unwanted pounds. We want to help you lose weight easier and faster with our medical weight loss program in Maple Grove, MN by customizing the program specifically for you. We can also offer you the Zerona® Laser weight loss treatment that works to whittle away inches while you lose the weight with lifestyle changes. To meet your needs and health goals, we will meet you right where you are. If you would like to learn more about a personalized plan, please call and schedule a consultation today.     Why Can't I Lose Weight?     Many patients come into our office and state that they just can't lose weight on their own. They may blame their age or genetics, but the culprit maybe be a body imbalance. We will do our best to figure out the metabolic block that is causing this plateau or inability to lose weight. There are many disorders and biological factors that can interfere with weight loss including: •Decreased thyroid hormone levels •Food sensitivities and allergies •Unpredictable blood sugar levels •Elevated cortisol levels •Unbalanced hormone levels •Abnormal quantities of fat within the liver •Inconsistent bowel movements •Impaired colon health •Insulin resistance •Inflammation

By identifying where a metabolic block exists and correcting it, our patients are able to lose weight like never before, and we reprogram their metabolism to operate as it was intended.    When you come in for a free consultation to discuss your weight loss options, we can help you distinguish if your body is presently capable of losing weight, and assessing the maximum amount of fat you need to lose so that you can realize maximum results. We also perform a body mass index (BMI) to assess body mass and fat percentage. Blood panels and sensitivity testing will be performed on patients expressing the need. Musculoskeletal health will also be examined. Many patients may not be aware that they have metabolic blocks, which interfere in their ability to lose fat or weight. This is the main reason we have the initial medical weight loss and metabolic assessment before beginning a Zerona Laser treatment regimen.     Diet & Supplements     Your Zerona Laser weight loss treatments are maximized with the addition of our body detoxification, rejuvenation program, and Apex Energetics™ Supplements. The detox program is a series of supplements designed to clear your body of toxins and waste buildup, and is designed to stimulate your lymphatic system and promote healthy liver and gallbladder function. It is imperative that the liver is in top working condition before we start your Zerona Laser treatment program. When patients do this detox a week before the laser treatment, it will allow the body to cleanse itself, enabling it to take on the excess fat which will soon be released. Your body will be changing from the inside out.     Zerona Laser     We believe that the Zerona Laser treatment is the catalyst that most weight loss programs are lacking. The Zerona is low level laser that stimulates fat cells to emulsify (liquefy) the fat within the cell. The liquefied fat moves from inside the cell (through a temporary pore formed in the cell membrane by the laser) to outside the cell to be absorbed by the lymphatic system. This results in millions of fat cells becoming smaller so inches are reduced off the waist, hips, and thighs. The fat cells are not injured in any way by this process. Thus, this treatment leaves the endocrine system intact and healthy.  The Zerona Laser treatment is a completely painless, 40-minute session. The Physician or Medical Technician will position the laser at the desired areas of the body, and then will step out for 20 minutes while the front of your body is treated, and then will return to reset for the backside of your body for an additional 20 minutes. You can then return to your day without any recovery time.     Results     Our weight loss protocol has successfully helped more than 2,000 patients trim off inches, better their health, lose weight, and keep it off. Aside from the supplements, we provide a specially designed diet. As a Zerona Laser patient, you will notice inch loss as well as pound loss. Zerona Laser treatments will shrink your area of concern, and you will see a significant difference on the scale.     Other Considerations     One of the ways to get the most out of your Zerona treatment is to follow a sensible diet. We understand the difficulties of dieting, and we offer some alternatives. During your treatment period especially, it is imperative that your diet is as low in fat as possible. You don’t want to be introducing high-fat foods into your body when your liver should be working on the fat that is already there! You will be asking your liver to process 2 – 3 more times the fat than normal while having the Zerona laser performed. For successful weight loss, patient's need to alter their fat intake to aid the liver.  Of course, some fat in your diet is necessary. Mono-unsaturated fat is the best kind because it can actually help keep your arteries clean. Here is a list of our favorite snacks, all of which can be part of a sensible diet:  •Plain organic rice cakes or celery, spread with almond butter    •Carrots dipped in hummus    •Dried apricots or prunes    •Rice chips and salsa, organic guacamole, or lard-free bean dip    •Fresh-popped, unbuttered popcorn sprinkled with sea salt    •Raw almonds, cashews, peanuts    •Trail mixes (gluten and yogurt free)    •Rice crackers spread with all-natural fruit preserves    •Baked sweet potato chips    •Bananas dipped in peanut butter    •Roasted whole chickpeas    •Dairy-free frozen sorbet  Moderation is the name of the game, and these snacks are healthy choices that will help get you from one meal to the next. Following a healthy diet after your Zerona Laser program is key to ensuring you can enjoy your new sculpted body long after your treatment ends.
