Dr. Robert Guyette takes his staff to AAOMS meeting

Guyette AAOMS Guyette Facial Oral Surgery

This past year the American Association of Oral Maxillofacial Surgeons, or AAOMS, held their annual meeting in Chicago, Illinois. As a yearly opportunity, Dr. Robert Guyette and Dr. Mark Beehner took several staff members to the event. This was the 100th anniversary of AAOMS and the staff had a wonderful opportunity to hear about the history of AAOMS and the doctors who have worked in the OMS specialty. Dr. Guyette, Dr. Beehner, and the staff members had the opportunity to explore new techniques and applications related to the procedures that relate to Dental Implants and Oral Maxillofacial Surgery.

Dr. Guyette and Dr. Beehner are committed to continuing education and growth as it relates to the Guyette Surgery Center. Our staff attended classes in anesthesia assistant skills, new procedures and techniques with Dental Implants and All-on-4 procedures, technology, leadership skills, communication and listening skills, and cyber security.

As an extra treat on this trip, our doctors and staff members had the opportunity to listen to the Keynote speaker for the event, General Colin Powell, who was the Secretary of State and the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff for the United States. General Powell’s discussion was centered on “Leadership Taking Charge”. He spoke of his experiences as a leader on the world stage and as an eyewitness to leadership in action. He talked about what it takes to “take charge” during times of great change. He discussed what it means to stay focused, take responsibility and to work hard to improve your life around you. All of our staff members came away from this special event with high praise for education that General Powell gave.

The physicians at Guyette Facial & Oral Surgery Center are committed to excellence in patient care and strive to make sure that our patients know that they are getting the very best in patient care when they work with Dr. Robert Guyette and Dr. Mark Beehner.

Restylane Lyft for Younger Looking Hands

Lyft for Hands

Dr. Robert Guyette has been using  dermal fillers for years to help his patients  look younger and rejuvenized.   Recently the FDA approved Restylane Lyft to volumize the back of hands and the results have been fantastic!

Restylane  Lyft is a hyaluronic acid filler that is the first and only injectable to be approved for an area other than the face.

83% of women say they have noticed SIGNS OF AGING IN THEIR HANDS!

As we age, our hands start to look older due to the loss of collagen and elastin and our skin becomes thinner. That leads to the veins and tendons of the hands become more visible.  Being out in the sun can lead to the dark spots that we start to notice over time.  All of these issues lead people to feel like their hands are showing their true age, even if their face looks great!

Volume loss from age can be corrected!

By injecting fillers into the hands, patients notice a plumper and smoother appearance to the skin by reducing  the visibility of sagging skin and wrinkles.  People  ask “Does it hurt?” and the answer, according to the patients seen at Guyette Surgery Center is  “it does not hurt at all”!

It is time to have your hands match your face!   Dr. Robert Guyette has been helping people look and feel great with surgical procedures, such as face lifts, and eyelid surgery.  He personally performs all procedures, including fillers and Botox.   At The MediSpa at Guyette Facial & Oral Surgery, we offer a wide range of treatments, from Customized Facials to Microneedling, IPL to Laser treatments, all of which help the skin on the face, neck and décolleté to look younger and feel fantastic.

Most people forget about the others areas that show their age as well.  One of which is the hands.  With the recent approval of fillers in the hands, Dr. Guyette can truly offer a solution to the question “What can I do about my hands?”  With the combination of Restylane Lyft and the use of IPL or the CO2 laser treatments, he get your hands looking younger, smoother, and rejuvenated!  Your hands will no longer give away your age

Which Chemical Peel is Right for You?

Renew Your Complexion

 

At the MediSpa at Guyette Surgery, we feature the SkinMedica® Professional Peels.  We offer these services at both our Scottsdale and our Avondal locations.

The chemical peels accelerate skin exfoliation which will help your complexion appear more uniform and renewed.  A chemical peel can help diminish the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and roughness.

The number of recommended treatments is based on your initial level of skin damage and the selected peel strength.  Results will be cumulative, which means you will see progressive, dramatic results with each additional treatment.

We, at The MediSpa at Guyette Surgery, are always asked by our patients which peel is right for them.  Here is a basic guideline for the three different peels by SkinMedica®  We offer a complimentary consultation with our aesthetician.  During this time, our aesthetician will look at your skin through a power magnifying lens to access the level of peel that would benefit your skin issues.

Chemical Peels are not for your face alone.  These peels can be used on your décolleté, your hands, and your back.

Moles, Skin Tags & Lesions

Facial Injuries | Guyette Facial & Oral Surgery, Scottsdale, AZ

At Guyette Facial & Oral Surgery Center, Dr. Robert Guyette gets asked all the time “Can you remove this mole?”

Many times patients will be at one of our offices, either in Scottsdale or Avondale and they will tell us that they discussed mole removal with other doctors and have been told that the scar will be worse than the mole, or it is not cancer and does not need to be removed.  However, with today’s technology, most moles, skin tags, and lesions can be removed with excellent cosmetic results.

Using Lasers and other techniques, Dr. Robert Guyette successfully removes thousands of skin lesions every year. Unsightly dark spots, red raised angiomas, and other types of skin growth, such as skin tags, can be removed with local anesthesia. If there are many moles or lesions to be removed, IV sedation can be used to maximize patient comfort.  If a skin lesion is suspicious for cancer, it will be biopsied and sent for examination.

If you are at Guyette Facial & Oral Surgery Center for an oral surgery or a cosmetic procedure, please ask Dr. Robert Guyette or one of his knowledgeable staff members about the removal of the skin lesion.  We are happy to discuss what is possible and show you examples of these treatments.  Before and after photos of these treatments are on our website at  www.guyettesurgery.com/mole-lesion-removal

“Teeth-in-a-Day”

Full-Mouth-Reconstruction-Procedures-Guyette-Facial-Oral-Surgery-Scottsdale-Avondale

What is it and whom should I see?

Over the past 10 years, the “Teeth-in-a-Day” concept has exploded on the scene around the world. Conceived in Sweden and popularized in Portugal, this treatment has been as close to a miracle as we can get for people suffering from failing teeth. Failing teeth can take the form of decayed, broken, or  multiple missing teeth.  Traditional dentistry teaches that we should keep as many teeth as possible for as long as possible. In some people, however, there comes a time when spending more money trying to save their own teeth, without achieving a beautiful smile and the ability to eat what they want, no longer makes sense.

“Teeth-in-a-Day” allows a patient, in a single surgical procedure, to leave the office with beautiful teeth that are fixed to the jaw with dental implants.  For the right patients, this treatment has been a godsend and results in some of our most happy patients.

Because of the potential benefit for patients, many different types of doctors and companies have marketed this treatment.  But where do you go to decide if “Teeth-in-a-Day” is right for you?  Although this is a straight forward concept, it is a demanding surgical and dental restorative treatment that requires medical management,  coordinated effort, and routine follow up.  Although you can have this treatment performed in a dental office or corporate environment, we believe the best treatment is rendered in a suitable surgical operating room by experienced surgeons and dentists.

If you have questions or do not have a dentist, we would be happy to work with you to put together a team with the goal of excellent, long-term success and appropriate follow up care. As Oral Maxillofacial surgeons, both Dr. Robert Guyette and Dr. Mark Beehner have the unique medical and dental training that makes them experts in the “Teeth-in-a-Day” procedure.  Contact our office or call (480-657-7065) today to schedule a complimentary consultation.

Thinking About a Facelift?

Thinking About a Facelift? | Guyette Facial & Oral Surgery, Scottsdale

A facelift, otherwise known as rhytidectomy, offers the fastest and most striking results to reverse the signs of aging in the face and neck. Guyette Facial & Oral Surgery is Arizona’s leading clinics for facelifts. Board certified and with both an MD and DMD, Dr. Robert Guyette has over 25 years of experience in facial surgeries and specializes in facelifts.

Your face is your first impression. If you’re considering a facelift, you need and deserve to be in the best hands. Voted Top Dentist for the past 13 years, the facial, oral, and maxillofacial experts in Scottsdale and Avondale, Arizona are dedicated to providing patients with the best and safest results.

What Can I Expect with A Facelift?

Facelifts are a facial surgical procedure that can reverse the relaxation or drooping of the skin on the face and neck. Sagging can be caused by age, the natural loss of collagen and elastin in the skin, and sarcopenia (the natural muscle loss that occurs with age). Genetics also play a role.

Maybe you’ve noticed the lines at the corner of your mouth or between your eyebrows has been deepening in recent years. Perhaps you worry about the development of “turkey neck” that no amount of creams or facial exercises have been able to fix. Fat has a tendency to fall or can disappear entirely over the years. An increase in the jowls, a “crepe look” to the facial skin, and double chins are just a few common complaints. Gravity, sun damage, thinning skin and smoking can also play a role in facial and neck skin that looks aged and tired.

Ready to look younger, feel better, and increase your self-confidence? Trust in the board certified expertise of Dr. Robert Guyette, the MD and DMD in Arizona who specializes in facelifts.

A Younger You with A Facelift

A facelift is a restorative surgery. It is sometimes combined with a dermal filler, chemical peels, and/or Botox or Dysport injections to achieve the youthful look you’re after—however, that doesn’t mean you need to see a number of experts or doctors. Guyette Facial & Oral Surgery offers a true, all-in-one, holistic destination for your facial surgery and Medi-Spa needs.

Dr. Guyette will personally consult with you to decide if you’re a good candidate for a facelift. He will also talk with you about complementary procedures if applicable. Dr. Guyette performs all injections from dermal fillers to Botox or Dysport, and chemical peels are also offered in the Scottsdale and Avondale offices. Face your better future and contact us today for a consultation – call 480-657-7065.

All-on-4 Dental Implants: Get Teeth In A Day

All-on-4 Dental Implants: Get Teeth In A Day, Scottsdale, Avondale, AZ

Has a dentist told you that you’d benefit from dental implants, but the idea of a weeks-long procedure and possibly months of awkward healing isn’t your idea of cutting-edge dentistry? At Guyette Facial & Oral Surgery, we offer the new All-on-4 dental implants where you can get “teeth in a day” that genuinely look, act, and feel like your natural teeth.

Traditional dental implants offer fantastic, often lifelong results, but the initial appointments can be intense. They require the extraction of a tooth that’s damaged beyond repair (if a tooth is still present) and the grafting of a dental post onto the jaw bone. Next, the mouth needs to heal for several weeks while patients are fitted with a temporary replacement tooth. Finally, sometimes months after the first invasive procedure, a second process fits them with their dental implant.

If that sounds like way too many days, weeks, and even months of frustration, you’re not alone. That’s what makes the All-on-4 brand’s teeth in a day approach so groundbreaking.

All for One! (Or All-on-4 as the case may be)

Not every dental, oral, and maxillofacial clinic offers the cutting-edge All-on-4 technology for teeth in a day implants. Actually, it can be pretty tough to find! Many patients at Guyette Facial & Oral Surgery have never heard of the procedure before. Reserved for a full mouth restoration, an average of four implants are usually required in the upper or lower jaw to make you a great candidate for teeth in a day.

All-on-4 is still a relatively invasive and challenging oral surgery. But all dental implants are. However, teeth in a day offers instant results, and you couldn’t be in better hands with Board Certified Dr. Robert Guyette and Dr. Mark Beehner. In virtually one appointment, you’ll walk away with gorgeous, natural-looking teeth that can last up to a lifetime. There’s no waiting between multiple appointments. Patients enjoy instant results that improve appearance, self-confidence and optimize speech and function.

Are you a good candidate for teeth in a day? Schedule a consultation with Dr. Robert Guyette today and find out. Patients must have an adequate amount of bone to qualify.

Guyette Facial & Oral Surgery has two locations in Arizona, including Scottsdale and Avondale, but patients come from around the world to take advantage of teeth in a day. The unique experience, training, and expertise that only a professional with both an MD and DMD can provide is just a phone call away. As leading facial and oral/maxillofacial surgeons in the nation, both Drs. Robert Guyette and Mark Beehner bring over two decades of experience to patients. Please call to schedule a consultation to learn if you’re a candidate – 480-657-7065.

Medi-Spa Top 3 Picks for the Holidays

Medi-Spa Top 3 Picks for the Holidays | Guyette Medi-Spa, Scottsdale

The holidays are right around the corner, Guyette Facial & Oral Surgery is your little helper for the season. Our Medi-Spa offers a rich variety of procedures so you’ll look and feel your best for every upcoming event from New Year’s Eve parties to holiday photo sessions. Botox injections, dermal fillers, and chemical peels are three of our most popular procedures. Why wait until 2018 to achieve some revolutionary resolutions?

Botox

Dr. Robert Guyette specializes in both Botox and Dysport injections. The similar products offer fast and incredible results. What’s the difference between the two? They both decrease the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by delicately stopping the movement of certain muscles such as those “angry 11’s” between your eyebrows. Botox and Dysport can also help optimize facial aesthetics by slightly increasing brow arches with the expert, temporary paralysis of muscles. However, they are manufactured by different companies.

Botox and Dysport are safe, quick, and convenient. The procedure takes less than one minute, making it an accessible lunchtime appointment for patients. However, it does take up to three weeks for full results to be achieved, so you’ll want to book your appointment now before that ugly sweater party rolls around.

Dermal Fillers

Also known as facial fillers, these fast and simple injections help you almost instantly replace facial volume that’s lost over the years. Look younger, restore self-confidence, and even help with fine lines and wrinkles that are more pronounced when we lose volume in the face. As a facial expert, Dr. Guyette personally performs every injectable treatment including dermal fillers.

To get the best results from facial fillers, you need a facial expert who’s board certified and holds both an MD and DMD. This promises consistent, premium results designed to address your unique needs and concerns. The soft filler is injected directly into the skin for a plumper, younger look. It can be used in the lips, cheeks, around the eyes or mouth, and at various additional locations throughout the face. Guyette Facial & Oral Surgery carries the latest and safest dermal fillers.

Chemical Peels

A chemical peel chemically removes the top layers of skin to reveal smoother, dewier, and younger-looking skin below the surface. Enhance the texture of your face, improve the tone, and get rid of superficial wrinkles. A number of chemical peels are available, and Dr. Guyette and the Medi-Spa staff will select the best option for you and your skin. Address light acne scarring, freckles and age spots, irregular pigmentation, and even help with some pre-cancerous conditions like keratoses.

Keep in mind that chemical peels can take a few days to heal depending on initial skin condition and peel depth. It’s another appointment you’ll want to book in advance of your holiday shenanigans.
