As many of you know from my storytelling during appointments and my blog posts like this one, my wife has been the inspiration behind the founding of Maine Laser Skin Care. In early 2000s, she was working in the Portland area using her combined skills as a nurse and an attorney. She presciently identified the emergence of aesthetic medicine and asked the question:”Why can’t this be available in central Maine?”
My personal and professional research found that the dermatology and plastic surgery specialists in the area were too busy with their practices, and were not interested in developing an expertise in an emerging field. I spent over a year obtaining the multiple levels of certification and training needed to practice cosmetic and aesthetic dermatology, and began Maine Laser Skin Care in 2003.
Since 2003, my office practice in laser and aesthetic medicine has grown exponentially. By the end of 2013, I was able to practice in this field full time, and still have a tremendous amount of fun doing it.
Our new location in Augusta opened in late 2013, and has enhanced the practice growth by venture of our central location as well as through word-of-mouth. More and more people who had been going to southern Maine for these kinds of treatments began to forego the mileage and stay close to home with excellent results.
Now in 2017, Maine Laser Skin Care is the top aesthetic medicine practice outside of Portland and one of the busiest such offices in New England. I see patients from all over Maine as well as a number who even travel south from as far away as New Brunswick, Canada.
We also see many summer visitors who vacation here from Boston, New York and California and reserve their summer aesthetic treatments so that they can be treated here at Maine Laser Skin Care. I pride my office on providing cutting-edge aesthetic medicine in a personalized and comfortable venue.
I want to thank all of you who come to my office, as well as those who follow my blog posts and email newsletters. I plan to continue to expand the technologies we offer here which will provide maximum aesthetic effects non-invasively. We will be announcing a quantum leap forward in laser technologies that we will offer soon.
Finally, the title of this blog post was also my inspirational wife’s idea. I was telling her one night about all the amazing results I had been seeing with all the various treatments we offer and the excellent and gratifying feedback I receive.
She turned to me and said, “So, you are beautifying Maine one face a time.” At that point, my jaw dropped and I said, “I think we found our new motto!”
