Many times we have clients who are referred to us here at Maine Laser Skin Care by friends who have had Botox or other treatments. We love the trust that our satisfied customers have in us that they would entrust a friend or family member to our care.
However, frequently people will request the exact same treatment, or even the same dosage in the case of Botox or fillers, that their friend received. This situation is where the uniqueness of the individual face comes into play.
With Botox, a person's muscle structure may be stronger or weaker than their friends', and they may require a different dosage in terms of units. This is particularly striking when a woman refers a man or vice versa, which happens often with spousal referrals.
Men tend to have stronger muscles in general, especially in the face. For this reason, they require sometimes twice as many units as a women.
Other factors can influence the correct dosage of Botox or the treatment that would be recommended, such as age, extent of prior sun damage, scarring, and relative size of the area to be treated such as the forehead. No two people, other than possibly identical twins, share the same amounts of muscle and the same facial structure.
Performing an aesthetic procedure such as laser treatments, Botox, and fillers is both an art as well as a science. We at Maine Laser Skin Care as experienced providers understand anatomy, and have an eye for what can be done to beautify the face and the body to your satisfaction and standards. We do not believe in a cookie cutter approach, and one size or treatment definitely does not fit all.
Our motto and goal here at Maine Laser Skin Care is "to beautify Maine one face (and body) at a time". To that end, we assess each person as an individual. Each client may require a different combination of products and treatments to achieve their optimal goals.
