In addition to offering our patients high quality eye care services when dealing with their vision, Eye Care of Maine offers cosmetic eye treatments in addition to our other services. Understanding that the way you see as well as the way you are seen are both important to you, this service offered by Eye Care of Maine can give you the younger looking face you want.
BOTOX Waterville (opens in a new window): When you smile, laugh, frown, or look puzzled, you contract the muscles of your face. Over time, these contractions produce permanent furrows and deep wrinkles in the skin, especially around the eyes and mouth, between the eyebrows, and on the forehead. These lines can make you look older, sad, angry or tired. BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments can not only prevent you from deepening these lines during natural facial movements, they can also erase these marks of aging, leaving you looking younger and more refreshed.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is the most popular cosmetic procedure in the country and one of our most requested services. Quick, safe and effective, BOTOX® reduces or eliminates facial lines and wrinkles for up to six months with no downtime or surgery and little to no discomfort. Through a series of tiny injections, BOTOX® gives you a rejuvenated look by smoothing crow’s feet beneath the eyes, frown lines between the eyebrows, horizontal lines across the forehead, worry lines around the mouth, and lines on the neck.
JUVÉDERM® Injectable Gel
JUVÉDERM Waterville (opens in a new window): JUVÉDERM® is an injectable gel that gently reverses many signs of aging in the face, including fine lines and wrinkles, crow’s feet, thinning lips and loosening skin. It can also “plump up” the lips, sculpt the cheeks, and restore a youthful oval shape to the face. It is made with hyaluronic acid, a natural substance found in the body that works with collagen and elastin to give volume and support to the skin. Because it is non-animal-based and highly biocompatible, no pre-treatment testing is needed. JUVÉDERM® comes in three formulas optimized for the depth of the area being treated. Results last about 6-9 months and can be made to last even longer with a simple follow-up treatment a few weeks after the initial injection.
LATISSE Waterville (opens in a new window): LATISSE® is the first and only FDA-approved treatment for hypotrichosis, or inadequate eyelash growth. LATISSE® is a breakthrough treatment that enhances eyelashes by increasing their length, thickness and darkness through a daily treatment applied to the base of the upper lashes. This treatment contains bimatoprost, which increases the amount of hairs and the duration of the eyelash growth process.
Most patients notice significant results from LATISSE® after just four weeks of continuous use, with full results visible after 16 weeks. LATISSE® is the only prescription treatment currently approved by the FDA to help stimulate the growth and thickness of the eyelashes without makeup.
