If you have always dreamed of possessing long, sexy eyelashes your wait is now over. There is finally a legitimate product available that really works and it is the only one that has been approved by the FDA. Latisse™, developed by Allergan, Inc., has been shown to quite effective in stimulating longer, thicker and darker eyelashes.
Latisse™ can be as easy to apply as mascara. It is applied once a day at night to the upper eyelid lashes only. Most women can expect to experience significant growth and thickening of their lashes within six to eight weeks. Full results can take up to sixteen weeks. Study results revealed that eyelashes averaged 25% greater length, 106% more fullness and 18% more darkness. This does not guarantee that your results will be identical. Mascara can further complement the results obtained by the usage of Latisse™.
The most common side effects of Latisse™ are an itching sensation and/or redness of the eyes which occur in 4% of patients. This is usually temporary and does not reflect an allergic reaction. Less commonly, there can be darkening of adjacent eyelid skin which resolves after discontinuation of usage. If you totally stop using Latisse™, your eyelashes will revert back to their previous appearance over a period of several weeks to a few months.
For further information regarding Latisse™ including its purchase or to obtain any other plastic surgery related information, you can contact our office at 480-451-3000.

A Message Regarding Coronavirus/COVID-19
In light of the coronavirus/COVID-19 pandemic, we would like to let you know of some of the major precautions we are taking in our office to maximize cleanliness and keep the environment as sanitary and safe as possible. Our highest priority is always to ensure the safety of every individual who sees us and we are taking extreme infection-control measures to maintain cleanliness and “sterility” of surfaces and the overall environment.
We will be limiting dates and times for office appointments and consultations due to safety and other issues. Consequently, if you have already made an office appointment or consultation prior to March 18, 2020 to occur at a later time, this may need to be changed.
For anyone considering plastic surgery, we are now offering Virtual Consultations and Telemedicine through Skype. A great number of aesthetic or insurance-related issues can be evaluated via pictures and online video conferencing, making this an excellent way to find out more about particular procedures, determine candidacy for treatment, receive answers to questions and facilitate being able to move forward with care once the government lifts all restrictions.
In an abundance of caution, we are asking all current patients who are experiencing a fever, cough, chills, fatigue or any type of respiratory illness to please delay any upcoming appointments at our practice. We can talk with you by phone or email to establish a new date and time for the appointment.
We are all in this together. Our team urges everyone to follow the guidelines recommended by local health authorities and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which include frequent handwashing for a minimum of 20 seconds, social distancing, staying home if you are feeling sick, and contacting your healthcare provider if you feel you are experiencing symptoms.
