Exciting life-changing ways we can use Botox

Hyperhidrosis treatment using Botox

HYPERHIDROSIS – This is excessive sweating and we treat the armpits. We have an advanced needle head that allows us to do the treatment in a fraction of the time. It also is much less painful. Everyone breaks down Botox differently so the duration of the results vary. Typically, you will experience dry armpits for 3 to 6 months. It’s a very effective treatment and our clients love the results!

Does Botox help with facial spasms?

FACIAL SPASMS – Facial spasms can be very frustrating to deal with but we can usually fix them with a small amount of Botox. We have patients who have tried many different avenues to resolve their facial spasms with no relief. Botox finally put a stop to them. This treatment typically lasts 4-6 months and can be life-changing for clients!

Does Botox help shape the jawline?

CONTOURING OF THE LOWER FACE/JAWLINE – This is a nonsurgical option of reducing the shape of the lower face/jawline by injecting Botox into the masseter muscles. This makes the face look more youthful and slender and helps to emphasize the cheekbones. Many clients get asked if they’ve lost weight because of how it makes the face more slender. This treatment typically lasts 3-4 months and can be a game-changer!

Will Botox help correct my gummy smile?

GUMMY SMILE – This is when someone smiles very big and shows an excessive amount of gum and can sometimes take away from their smile. Some people are very self-conscious of their “gummy smile” and literally try not to smile too big. We can fix this with 2 small injections of Botox into the smile line. This treatment typically lasts 3 to 6 months. Then our clients can smile as big as they want!

Botox – Frown lines be gone

Skincare is important; product, systemic, and environmental factors determine how good your skin will look and potentially impact how you feel. This before and after photo of #botox on her forehead shows how effective injectables are at reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles (*she’s trying to frown in the below photo, but her muscles are blocked from moving – resulting in smoother skin). #nomorewrinkels #botox #juvederm #injectables #laser #maine #mainelife #happyhallowween

What kind of results can I expect from Botox®?

Botox® is a great way to turn back the clock and reduce fine lines and wrinkles.  Here at Maine Laser Clinic we’re often asked, “what kind of results can I expect from Botox®?  That’s a great question, and as results do vary, the benefits are always noticeable, regardless of where you choose to have your treatment.  

Does Botox work better if I use hyaluronic acid serums?

Like any topical application, product, microneedling, laser, etc…Botox® enhances the benefits of anything that promotes collagen formation or Neocollagenesis.  The muscles relax, allowing the skin to relax which enable better penetration for treatments as well as products.

What about the side effects of Botox®?

As with any elective treatment, certain risks should be weighed against the benefits.  Do you have high blood pressure?  Do you have a compromised immune system?  Have you had complications with previous injections?  All of these questions should be asked and answered by your physician prior to any cosmetic procedure, however.  The risks are relatively low and Botox® is the number 1 performed injectable in the world.  

Who offers the best pricing in Portland Maine for Botox® injections?

We understand price is a factor for many people during the shopping phase.  Our philosophy is, would you trust your mechanic to install your sink?  No!  The point is, you should look for an establishment that has experience doing/performing the procedures you’re interested in…especially injectables like Botox®.  Back to price – the typical cost per unit for Botox® is $11-$14.  We offer many incentives and Allergan (the manufacturer of Botox®) provides a generous rewards program for loyal customers.

Plus, Maine Laser Clinic runs a monthly promotional day to introduce those interested in seeking treatment for fine lines, wrinkles, special events like, graduations, birthday parties, weddings, and more.  

What kind of training should practitioners have who perform Botox® injections?

It’s always good to seek out a practitioner who has received certification in Botox® injections.  Additionally, it’s important that the doctor or nurse receive clinical practice during their certification.  Here at Maine Laser Clinic, our staff has undergone advanced training in Botox®, Juvederm®, Kybella® and Microcannula training.  These advanced trainings ensure you’ll receive the very best care and attention during your treatment.  We are Portland Maine’s premier med-spa and invest in ongoing training with the latest techniques and procedures that keep us sharp, focused and knowledgeable about all aspects of skin care, health care, and safety practices.
