Since 2004, thousands of men and women have turned to Dr. Burke and his team at Maine Laser Skin Care to correct facial lines and wrinkles. They have sought a technique that gives reproducible results, is minimally invasive and has no recovery time. For those and many other reasons, Maine Laser Skin Care chooses Botox Cosmetic.
Maine Laser Skin Care has the most experience with injecting Botox in central and southern Maine. We also delivers consistent and predictable results with patient satisfaction rates in the high 90's.
Effects of Botox generally last at least 3 months. Through our experience, we have found that if Botox is administered again soon after the previous injection has worn off, the subsequent effects are longer-lasting each time.
Each area of the face treated with Botox takes about 5-10 minutes with multiple injections per site. After the injections, there is virtually no downtime at all except what Dr. Burke likes to call "the black fly bite look". You will have some small red dots in the injected areas which will fade quickly and are easily covered by makeup.
Before your first treatment with Botox, the most important aspect of the visit is the consultation. Initially, the Maine Laser Skin Care staff will discuss your aesthetic goals and what is the most appropriate treatment for you.
After the initial discussion, we will review your medical conditions and all the medications you take. Your list of medication should include all prescriptions as well as over-the-counter pills, skin creams and any supplements to make sure there is no contraindication to administering Botox.
Our team will also examine your facial muscles by having you perform a series of facial movements. This exercise will enable us to assess the location and strength of the muscles which are causing your facial lines. The consultation will also outline a treatment plan which will be customized to your individual face and your goals. The plan may involve Botox alone or Botox combined with other options available at Maine Laser Skin Care.
Still not sure if Botox is right for you? In the following video, Dr. John Burke himself explains what makes Botox work the wonders it does, and why it could be the right choice for you especially if you are looking to get rid of wrinkles:
Maine Laser Skin Care offers to make you look and feel younger. However, there is still some hesitancy among some of our patients to undergo certain treatments, particularly Botox and Juvederm. The main reason some are reluctant to try these two products in particular is not because of the fear of negative long-term results or undesirable side effects, but because they believe these procedures are too expensive.
Such concerns are understandable during these times. Fortunately, Allegan, the company that makes Botox and Juvederm, wants to save you money just as much as we do, which is why they have created the Brilliant Distinctions Consumer Loyalty Program.
This program is designed to save you money when you receive Botox or Juvederm treatments through credited, recognized skin care doctors like myself. What happens is that every time you purchase Botox or Juvederm, you earn points that can be redeemed for savings on any future Allergan product purchase. So, for example, one Botox injection administered by us can save you money on your next Botox purchase. If you earn enough points, you could even get a Botox treatment for free.
