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!

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...

Collagen is a structural protein found throughout the body and one of the single most important biological components when it comes to facial contours. Collagen provides a kind of scaffolding, and for the skin, makes it appear full and youthful. The collagen found in skin gives the face volume and, for children, gives that “squeezable” appearance. As we age, however, our body’s ability to naturally produce collagen is diminished. This is why our cheeks aren’t as plump, necks aren’t as taught, eyelids being to droop, and jaw lines begin to fall. The collagen decline starts around the mid to late 20’s and on average by age 30 we lose 1% dermal collagen annually. Lose collagen? Yes, we “lose” collagen in a manner of speaking. When we age preexisting collagen...

Recently, there has been some controversy surrounding the safety of cosmetic laser treatments, as mentioned in the Arizona Republic article “Cosmetic Care Via Laser Can Be Risky” on Sunday October 12, 2014 (link to article).

Personal injury risks can vary but the primary danger associated with Laser treatments is damage to the eyes that can lead to vision impairment. This danger is easily mitigated by proper use of safety eyewear, for the patient and laser technician, therefore minimizing risk of eye damage and/or impaired vision. So what should patients be concerned about when it comes to cosmetic laser treatments and their personal safety?...
