There are a lot of women out there who are tired of applying mascara to their eyelashes every day. Others who need even more enhancement are tired of applying false eyelashes either on their own or going to a salon to have this done professionally. In addition to the work it requires, it is also expensive. Thick mascara and fake eyelashes are sometimes very obvious. Many individuals who are interested in having fuller, longer and darker eyelashes that are natural are turning to Latisse®. This is a product that has been approved by the FDA for this purpose.

During clinical studies, Latisse® has proven to have fantastic results when it comes to improving thin, light and short eyelashes. Studies have shown that patients can expect their eyelashes to be at least 18 percent darker using the product. They can also expect their lashes to increase in length by 25 percent, and in thickness by more than 100 percent! Clinical studies also showed that individuals can experience the full effect of the Latisse® after using it for 12 weeks.

When a patient is considering which product to use to enhance their eyelashes, they do not have to make many decisions. Latisse® is the only product that is currently approved by the FDA to improve the appearance of a person’s eyelashes. There are other eyelash products that are on the market, but most of these are only used as conditioners. Latisse® is the only product that has proven that it can help the eyelashes to grow.

When you come in for a consultation, we will discuss all of the details of the product. We will also instruct you on how to use Latisse® properly.

Defy Aging Non-Surgically with Dermal Fillers

It would be amazing if we could avoid aging altogether. Unfortunately, cosmetic technology has not reached the point where this is possible. The next best option is to age gracefully. Thankfully, there are a lot of cosmetic solutions that make this possible. One of the most popular non-surgical options is dermal fillers.

What Do Dermal Fillers Do?

Dermal fillers allow people to have a younger appearance, smoother skin and fewer fine lines. This is done for a fraction of what getting a traditional facelift would cost. The results of dermal filler procedures can last from between four months to up to one year.

Dermal Fillers Versus BOTOX®

BOTOX®is a popular anti-aging therapy. It works by relaxing the muscles in certain parts of the face that are responsible for dynamic wrinkles. Dermal fillers, on the other hand, fill in the wrinkles or lines on a person’s face. As a result, trouble spots are not merely hidden or relaxed, but they actually disappear.

Increasing Volume 

Dermal fillers have been used by many to increase the volume of their face. When a person ages, the areas in their face around their temples, their jaw bone and their cheeks begin to lose volume.

As a person ages, they get more of a sunken, hollow appearance. The same loss of volume can affect a person’s lips, making them look thin and unattractive.

Dermal fillers can reverse volume loss. When applied to a person’s cheeks, temples and lips, it can give them the fullness that is associated with a youthful appearance.

Finding the Right Dermal Filler

Not every dermal filler is right for every wrinkle. Before beginning treatment, it is imperative that you speak to our professionals at the Cosmetic Enhancement Center of New England. We have offices located in Portland and Waterville. The most popular dermal fillers include hyaluronic acid. These fillers have been known to produce positive results for between a few months to over a year.

Injections of these type stimulate the body’s ability to create collagen. This in turn minimizes the appearance of lines and wrinkles. A lot of evidence shows that the longer dermal fillers are used, the less fillers are needed to achieve the same results.

Mankind is still searching for the fountain of youth. Until that discovery is made, dermal fillers provide a way for people to retain their youthful appearance and face the aging process with grace.

At the Cosmetic Enhancement Center of New England, we are committed to helping you age as gracefully as possible. Contact us today to schedule your appointment to learn more about how dermal fillers can benefit you.

Eliminate Unwanted Body Hair with Laser Hair Removal

Laser Hair Removal in Portland, ME

Laser hair removal is a good option for people who need to regularly shave, wax or pluck some areas of body hair in order to feel clean and look attractive. It is safe and effective, and because of the latest technological advances, almost everyone can enjoy the benefits.

Hair grows in three stages, including the growth stage, the dormant stage and the falling-out stage. The laser hair removal procedure works during the growing stage. About 20 percent of your hair is in the actively growing stage. That is why people need to have multiple treatments to make sure all of the hair in a specific area has been removed.

You will have smooth, hair-free skin for months, and in some cases a year or more. Much of the hair will not grow back, and the hair that does grow back will be weak and pale. When some hair starts to grow back, the procedure can be repeated.

Our specialist can remove the hair on most parts of the body. It is effective for large areas, as well as small areas on the face. The most common places people have laser hair removal are the:

• Back
• Upper lip and chin
• Neck
• Bikini area
• Chest
• Shoulders
• Underarms

Laser hair removal is a treatment that focuses light energy into the hair follicle. The pigment in the hair absorbs the heat and causes the follicle to be affected. When this happens, the follicle is no longer able to grow hair. The laser only targets the hair follicle and not the surrounding skin. After the recommended number of treatments, you will start to see a reduction in hair growth in the treated area.

Our trained technicians will discuss several plans with you to make sure your laser hair removal is safe and as comfortable as possible. Your plan will take into consideration your skin tone, amount of suntan, hair thickness and hair color.

For at least four weeks before treatment, you shouldn’t wax, use depilatories, bleach or pluck the hair in the area you want to have treated. Shaving is all right because it doesn’t affect the follicle. After the treatment, the hair will gradually remove itself within 14 days or so.

To get all of the facts about laser hair removal, set up a consultation at the Cosmetic Enhancement Center of New England, with locations in Portland and Waterville. We will be happy to address your questions and concerns as we determine if this treatment is right for you. Contact us today to schedule your appointment.
