Maybe you have thought about improving your body or your facial appearance for years, but you’re afraid of committing too much time and energy to a procedure. Dr. Shawn will tell you — looking good  doesn’t always require surgery.

Non-invasive and minimally-invasive procedures have revolutionized the way Dr. Shawn can improve, maintain or simply supplement your appearance. The benefit of non-surgical techniques is obvious — a minimal amount of social and functional downtime. In other words, your recovery time is over before you know it, and you’ll see yourself in a whole new light!

Do you ever look at old photographs of yourself and wonder where the time has gone? Dr. Birchenough takes anti-aging​ ​to a new level with options like wrinkle-smoothing injectables, fillers and laser skin-resurfacing.

We all know that anti-aging and skin-improving products from a drugstore never live up to their claims. So why not try doctor-tested and doctor-approved skin care? At OptimalSelf MD, we offer high-quality skin care products, cosmeceuticals,​ such as Revision and Latisse. These can smooth your complexion, brighten your skin and reduce the appearance of wrinkles.

For facial rejuvenation, Botox, as well as fillers such as the Juvederm product line, can quickly smooth out wrinkles and creases. Lip contours (Juvederm Ultra) and cheek enhancements (Juvederm Voluma) can be done with immediate results. Don’t worry — Dr. Shawn is a strong advocate of the “no duck lips” concept of lip refinement and restores a youthful contour to the lips. He is an expert nonsurgical injector.

Sometimes, despite our best efforts and hard work, our silhouette isn’t exactly what we want it to be, but there’s not enough fat to warrant surgery. Several non-surgical techniques for body contouring and fat reduction, such as SculpSure, are now available.

Dr. Shawn closely follows and carefully evaluates the multitude of fat-reduction technology on the market and has chosen SculpSure as the best option. No surgery, no downtime, no injections — this in-office procedure requires no anesthesia and you can be back to work or working out immediately after you’re done.



“I’ve​ ​ had​ ​ patients​ ​ say​ ​ that​ ​ they​ ​ would​ ​ NEVER​ ​ get​ ​ Botox​ ​ or​ ​ filler,​ ​ because​ ​ ‘it​ ​ always​ ​ looks​ ​ fake.’​ ​ Then​ ​ I​ ​ show them​ ​ (anonymous)​ ​ photos​ ​ and​ ​ examples​ ​ of​ ​ MY​ ​ patients​ ​ after​ ​ injectables​ ​ — sometimes​ ​ they​ ​ are​ ​ even​ ​ friends of​ ​ theirs​ ​ that​ ​ they​ ​ had​ ​ no​ ​ idea​ ​ had​ ​ any​ ​ work​ ​ done!​ ​ They​ ​ realize​ ​ that​ ​ these​ ​ women​ ​ look​ ​ beautiful​ ​ and​ ​ natural, not​ ​ overdone.

Plastic​ ​ surgery​ ​ should​ ​ yield​ ​ results​ ​ that​ ​ are​ ​ natural​ ​ — enhancing​ ​ beauty,​ ​ not​ ​ distracting​ ​ us​ ​ from​ ​ it.​ ​ That philosophy​ ​ applies​ ​ to​ ​ everything​ ​ I​ ​ do​ ​ from​ ​ helping​ ​ patients​ ​ choose​ ​ desirable​ ​ implant​ ​ sizes​ ​ to​ ​ using​ ​ the appropriate​ ​ amount​ ​ of​ ​ Botox​ ​ in​ ​ the​ ​ forehead.”
