Bro-Tox Anyone?

By. Dr. Clarissa Kroese, DO, Aesthetic Medicine

Listen up all you men out there that think Botox® is just for Women! Statistics today are showing otherwise. Every year more and more men are getting Botox®, Dysport® or Xeomin®. There are many reasons why but some may surprise you.

Some men are nudged by the “loving” person in their lives while others are realizing the impact aging and wrinkles can have on their daily life. The deep wrinkles between your eyes, also known as the 11’s, can sometimes make you appear unapproachable or even angry. This can be a negative when it comes to business when it can pay to have a softer more approachable appearance. Also it doesn’t hurt to look a little more youthful in the dating world as well.

If you or the man in your life would like to look more youthful, call today to your free consultation 248-524-0620. We will sit down with you and answer all your questions. Our goal is to help you look more youthful and natural.

The gift of plastic surgery?

The gift of plastic surgery? Is that Acceptable?

You may have heard of cosmetic surgery being given as a gift in the past – perhaps a husband gave his wife a breast augmentation for Christmas or a Rhinoplasty for Mother’s Day ? At first glance, this may seem inappropriate, but why since many receive gift certificates to other establishments like spas, restaurants and stores?

The reason is that it’s a little more complicated than it seems at first. Most plastic surgeons draw the line at a consultation as the only reasonable plastic surgery gift. However, if the doctor and patient agree that a procedure is reasonable, and the patient desires the procedure then certainly the patient can have a third party pay for it. At that point, there are only financial obligations, but not ethical issues.

Note to the men out there. Don’t surprise your significant other with a nose job that she has never mentioned before or isn’t on board with – you might end up in the dog house. Send her to the spa instead.

Botox: Brides are Opting for Medical Treatments Prior to Their Wedding Day

It is becoming more and more common for future brides to consult a plastic surgeon prior to the Big Day! More brides are exploring their options with Botox and other cosmetic procedures to help erase the years of stress, worrying, studying and natural aging. A 35 year old bride can’t look 20 over night, but if she can look younger and more refreshed after a treatment with Botox, then why not? We continue to see an increase in the number of brides exploring their cosmetic options.

Approximately 11 million people have discovered the benefit of Botox since 2002. Botox is a nonsurgical treatment that is injected directly into the muscles between the brows. It works by blocking nerve impulses to the muscles, which reduces the movement that causes moderate to severe lines to form.

Looking and feeling good about yourself is important, so it’s obvious why this simple non-invasive treatment is becoming increasingly popular among brides-to-be and mother-in-laws to be! Today’s brides are willing to spend to get the desired results and look more refreshed for their wedding day. Botox is an excellent way to ultimately restore the youthful appearance she once knew.
