Helping the Girls of Maine
Help us make Maine an even better place to live by supporting one of our favorite non-profit organizations.
The Skin Klinic & Day Spa recently began helping Mainely Girls, which is based in Midcoast Maine and was started in 1996. This special non-profit organization works with rural communities to assist them in focusing on girls’ needs in a positive, preventative, and proactive manner. It also works on the state level to bring about positive change for girls.
4 Important Benefits of Manicures and Pedicures
Do you think of manicures and pedicures as just an occasional way of pampering yourself? Regular manicures and pedicures actually provide great benefits for your overall health and well being, especially in Maine’s cold and harsh winters. They also help keep hands looking young.
Stress and Skin Care
Stress wreaks havoc on our bodies and minds, and most of us are aware of the damage it can do. Stress affects your quality of life by causing stomach pain, headaches, high blood pressure or insomnia. Did you know stress could also cause problems for your skin?
The Importance of Skin Exfoliation
Fall is upon us once again in Midcoast Maine and the air is getting cool and crisp. We love this time of the year and the colors that burst across the landscape. Along with all the beauty that fall brings to Maine, the seasonal temperature changes take a toll on our skin. With exfoliation, we can help to maintain our youthful and healthy glow year round.
Skin Klinic now offers Pelleve to reduce wrinkles
We are excited to announce that we are now offering Pelleve. The Pelleve System is a FDA-approved, noninvasive treatment that delivers radiofrequency energy into the skin, causing heat where the skin and fat layer meet, which helps to reduce wrinkles. The heat affects the collagen in the skin, causing new growth of collagen over time. This process results in firmer, tighter skin giving you a more youthful look.
Don’t Let Your Wrinkles Tell Your Story. Refresh your look with RADIESSE®
Do you wish you could beat the aging process? You can, and we are excited to help! RADIESSE, a dermal filler, is FDA-approved for correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial fold (the creases that extend from the corner of your nose to the corner of your mouth). As these lines are filled, you start to get that youthful look you once had and loved.
Is it time to consider Botox?
What is the right time to consider Botox? 30s? 40s? 50s?
Botox is produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinus called botulinum toxin. There are many beneficial uses for Botox, but at Skin Klinic & Day Spa, we use it as a cosmetic medical treatment to remove wrinkles by temporarily relaxes muscles in the face, causing them to relax and soften. Your youthful appearance typically lasts three to four months.
Have you been experiencing unwanted stretch marks, wrinkles or scarring? A lot of us are and there’s a solution to rejuvenating the skin to give it a natural and youthful look! Skin Klinic Day Spa now offers the Palomar Emerge™ Fractional Laser that stimulates collagen and elastin in the skin to promote youthful skin by using non-surgical microbeams to treat the affected areas. The collagen and elastin fibers continuously multiply after treatment, so you will continue to see improved results months after your procedure! This process results in a fast healing time with limited side effects.

The chosen Maine Sea Goddess then represents the Maine Lobster Festival, the lobster industry, and Rockland with appearances at events and associations throughout New England for the year. The winner receives a cash prize and the title of The Maine Lobster Festival Sea Goddess with a lovely crown.
How Exercise Helps Your Skin
We’re all aware of the benefits of exercise to our muscles, hearts, lungs and even mental state, but does it help our skin, our body’s largest organ?
The answer is yes. Exercise increases blood flow, which promotes good circulation ensuring that plenty of oxygen and nutrients are delivered to the skin, keeping it healthy and vibrant. Increased blood flow also helps flush cellular debris from your system, cleansing your skin from the inside out.
