Skin Care

Here at Minnesota Eye Institute we care about more than just your eyes. Dr. Carlson and Marsha Leen (our Medical Esthetician) can help improve your life through a variety of procedures.  See how our team can help rejuvenate your skin and improve your life.

Cosmetic Services

Upper and Lower Eyelid Blepharoplasty

Dr. Carlson enjoys improving the lifestyles of patients who have excess skin around their eyes.  The build-up of excess skin and fatty tissue on the upper eyelid can often impede one’s vision while similar buildup on the lower lid can cause “bags” to form.  Both of the these conditions call for a blepharoplasty to be performed.  The procedure can be completed in our very own surgical suite.  Our staff is committed to providing you a personal and transforming experience.  Contact us today to schedule an appointment.

BOTOX® Injections

Minnesota Eye Institute is pleased to offer our patients BOTOX®.  This procedure is the solution millions of men and women of all skin colors and ethnicities are choosing to revitalize their face.  Our trained staff want you to keep smiling, frowning, and looking suprised without those lines between your brows.

The procedure is quick and minimally invasive, discomfort is brief and in just days patients will be enjoying their new and improved brow.

We look forward to serving your needs in the privacy of our clinic.  Contact us to set up an appointment today.


JUVÉDERM® XC is a great solution to wrinkles and folds around your mouth and nose.  Our staff is waiting to hear from you to see how we can help rejuvenate your smile.  The smooth gel filler that Dr. Carlson injects will instantly smooth away wrinkles.  With just one treatment, you’ll get smooth and natural-looking results that last up to a year.
