About Dr. John Burke

John Burke, MD is a cum laude graduate of Dartmouth College majoring in Biology and honors graduate of Boston University School of Medicine. He trained for 3 years in Internal Medicine at Emory University Affiliated Hospitals in Atlanta, Georgia and is board certified in Internal Medicine. He has practiced for the past 25 years in central Maine and is the founding partner of MidMaine Internal Medicine.

Due to patient demand and interested in bringing the latest in technology to Maine, Dr. Burke devoted several years to research and continuing medical education to learn the latest in laser and dermatologic technology. As a result, he established Maine Laser Skin Care in 2004.

Since founding the business, he has treated patients from all over Maine and New England as well as many summer visitors who have previously had similar treatments in Boston, Manhattan and Florida.

Dr. Burke is one of the busiest practitioners in Maine in latest laser treatments as well in the use of Botox for upper facial lines and excessive sweating. He has been certified by the Allergan Corporation and the International Hyperhidrosis Society to administer Botox for these conditions. He has also been awarded a fellowship from the American Society of Laser Medicine and Surgery (ASLMS) for his work combating such conditions, and is certified in the use of dermal fillers; including the newest Juvederm line of products, for deeper facial lines, especially in the lower face.

He also actively continues the mastery of his profession by constantly reviewing the medical literature, and attending national conferences, on the topics of aesthetic dermatology to learn the latest advances that can be applied to the care of difficult skin conditions. In applying this knowledge on a day-to-day basis, Dr. Burke helps patients feel better about their appearance and how they present themselves.
