Michiel van de Werd completed his medical studies at the Vrije Universiteit in Amsterdam. During his studies he already showed a lot of interest in the surgical and then especially cosmetic side of medicine. That is why during his studies he chose to gain additional experience in the Throat, Nose and Ear Surgery and head and neck surgery. In addition, he has investigated the influence of Aloe Vera on scar healing in plastic surgery at VUmc in Amsterdam. He has been the owner of Velvet Clinics since 2014.
He has acquired his knowledge and skills with regard to cosmetic treatments from various renowned doctors. He also closely follows new developments in this area and regularly visits workshops and conferences in The Netherlands and abroad. He is also affiliated with various professional associations.He also thinks it is important that knowledge is passed on to others. That is why, in addition to his work at the clinic, Michiel is also a trainer for SkinTech, where he teaches other practitioners the intricacies of working with chemical peels.
Doctor Van de Werd is of the opinion that beauty cannot be captured in a standard package of body characteristics, but that it is a natural interplay in which especially relationships and symmetry play a major role. Beauty and / or attractiveness should go together with a little bit of mystery, which is why he always goes for the most natural result possible with the least possible intervention.
