Cosmetic Treatments to Enhance Your Facial Aesthetics
Dr. Gauthier has completed courses and training from the American Academy for Facial Esthetics (AAFE) in order to fully understand the bones and muscles of the face. Studying how the muscles interact with wrinkles, lines, and creases in the face has allowed Dr. Gauthier to treat his cosmetic patients with precision. Using what he has learned from the AAFE, Dr. Gauthier can help patients rebuild the collagen in their skin, lift their eyebrows, and minimize wrinkles.
There are multiple treatments that Dr. Gauthier offers at Apex Dental to keep you looking your best. Read about each of these cosmetic treatments below and contact Dr. Gauthier’s dental office if you would like to make an appointment.
Botox, or Botulinum toxin, is a protein that treats fine lines and wrinkles in the skin of the face. When injected into the muscle tissue, Botox relaxes the muscle and smooths the skin. Although this cosmetic treatment is quick, results can last for over six months.
Botox can also be used to treat TMJ disorders! Temporomandibular joint disorders can cause headaches, facial pain, and jaw dysfunction. When Botox is injected into key areas of the face, it relaxes the muscles and helps relieve facial tension and jaw pain. Dr. Gauthier has extensive cosmetic and restorative training from SPEAR and the Dawson Academy so he can expertly treat patients with bite disorders and myofascial pain.
Dermal fillers help minimize facial wrinkles. Dr. Gauthier uses Juvederm®, an FDA-approved hyaluronic acid (HA) filler. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance that helps produce collagen, a protein that promotes skin elasticity. Dermal fillers such as Juvederm reduce wrinkles around the lips, nose, and cheeks. Juvederm offers immediate results and can last anywhere from six months to multiple years.
A thread lift is a non-invasive alternative to surgical facelifts. During a thread lift, Dr. Gauthier places a medical-grade suture inside the skin. The suture is pulled up underneath the skin. This treatment can help generate natural collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid for smooth skin and a youthful look. Thread lifts also offer quick results and can last from one to three years.
