Smooth As Silk

By Dr. Clarissa Kroese

Do the vertical lines around your mouth have you down? Do you dream of softer, more luscious lips? I have a way to turn your frown upside down. The answer is in Restylane® Silk.

Restylane Silk is a FDA approved hyaluronic acid filler designed for subtle lip enhancement and smoothing of the wrinkles and lines around the mouth. This product gives your lips a soft natural look. No “duck lips” with this filler! Because the lips are a sensitive area, an ultra-fine needle is used for the injection and lidocaine is included in the product for a more comfortable experience.

The results with this product is instant and can last up to six months with possible temporary side effects such as mild swelling and bruising.

Achieve the lips you would love to have without the fear of not looking like you. We can enhance your natural beauty by getting natural looking results.

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.

Introducing the NEW injectable filler, Juvederm Voluma XC

Introducing the NEW injectable filler, Juvederm Voluma XC

JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC injectable gel is the first and only filler FDA-approved to instantly add volume to the cheek area. It gives you a subtle lift, helping to restore contour and a more youthful profile, for up to 2 years, in patients over the age of 21. It’s different than JUVÉDERM® XC and works on a different area of the face. JUVÉDERM® XC smoothes out moderate to severe wrinkles and folds around the nose and mouth, like parentheses. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC, however, adds volume to the cheek area.

What else should you know about JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC? Voluma is the first and only Hyaluronic Acid (HA) filler FDA-approved to instantly add volume to the cheek area, resulting in a subtle lift. It is clinically proven to last up to 2 years with optimal treatment, which is significantly longer than other filler products.

Minimal bruising is common following treatment, but typically after 24 hours, you should be able to resume your normal activities. Side effects are moderate and generally last 2 to 4 weeks. Common side effects include temporary reactions at the treatment site such as tenderness, swelling, firmness, lumps/bumps, bruising, pain, redness, discoloration, and itching.

Juvederm Voluma XC is made of Hyaluronic Acid (HA), which is a naturally occurring, hydrating substance found in your skin. As you age, you start to lose HA, which causes the skin to lose structure and volume.

Fat Grafting

Fat Grafting

How can we use fat from one area of the body to enhance another area? Fat transfer (fat transplantation, fat injection or fat grafting) is a medical procedure that uses the patient’s own fat tissue from their thigh, lower stomach or inner knee to increase the volume of fat in the subcutaneous area of the body. Uses continue to develop but some of the most current applications include injection of fat into the breast for augmentation or after breast cancer surgery, cheek and chin augmentation, wrinkles next to the mouth (marionette lines) and the hollow areas under the eyes.

In most applications, the fat is injected down through the skin and into subcutaneous tissue and sometimes muscle to provide a better chance for the fat cells to find a nearby blood supply and survive. Some of the fat does not survive, so typically a surplus amount of fat is injected. Fat transfer provides excellent results, and it is readily available! If you don’t want to use synthetic fillers, fat grafting would be an excellent option for you.

NEWS RELEASE: 3D Photographic Simulation Brings a New Dimension to Plastic Surgery at Dr Michael J. Schenden’s Office.

New technology allows patients to preview how they will look with aesthetic procedures. Click HERE to see the 3D simulator in action!!!

Troy, Michigan– If you are one the thousands of people each year considering aesthetic plastic surgery, Dr Michael Schenden has some good news for you. Recent advances in three dimensional (3D) photography combined with revolutionary new software allow prospective patients to preview what they will look like as the result of breast augmentation, facial procedures, and more, well in advance of any surgery.

Both the VECTRA® 3D camera and Sculptor software which make this possible were developed by Canfield Imaging Systems of Fairfield, NJ, the world’s leading provider of medical photography systems. The process starts with a VECTRA 3D session which produces a three-dimensional photograph of the patient. Then, using Sculptor software, the surgeon is able to simulate the expected results of a variety of aesthetic procedures.

“My patients are going to absolutely love this,” said Dr Michael Schenden. “For the first time, they’ll be able to see a 3D picture of themselves with their new look. Because it’s in 3D, I can rotate their picture to any viewpoint and they can really examine the desired result. We can make changes here and there and agree on a final look in advance, and this truly helps them make a decision”.

Dr Schenden has more than 25 years of experience, offering professional, personalized medical care in aesthetics such as: breast augmentation, breast lift, facelifts, nose surgery, eyelid surgery, liposuction, tummy tucks and more. Dr. Schenden is a board certified plastic surgeon and is available for consultations by appointment at 248.524.0620.

Juvederm: Minimize the effects of aging without going under the “Knife”

For those men and women who are looking for a way to restore their fresh, plump, youthful face without going under the “knife” – facial fillers like Juvederm are an excellent option. Whether the patient is seeking fuller lips and cheeks or a more defined chin, aesthetic enhancements like Juvederm make it entirely possible.

Juvederm is the smooth gel filler that is used to instantly smooth away wrinkles around your mouth and nose by adding volume to the hollowed areas. Commonly injected areas are the nasolabial folds (vertical lines from the nose to the corner of the mouth), marionette lines (vertical lines from the corners of the mouth to the chin) and vertical lip lines (facial wrinkles around the lips). With just one treatment, it is possible to get smooth and natural-looking results that can last up to a year.

The fact that Juvederm is so fast to administer and can be done in a regular in office visit, makes it even more desirable to my patients who are looking for a non-invasive way to restore their youth. And, the fact that the results last for up to a year is an additional bonus!

Everyone will notice but no one will know.
