Women frequently go to great lengths to attain long, thick eyelashes that accentuate the appearance of their eyes and make them more attractive. For many times, mascara and eyelash curlers don’t achieve the desired results. The Latisse™ eyelash extension product at our practice is the first and only product approved by the FDA that has been scientifically proven to stimulate the growth of eyelashes. Developed by Allergan, Latisse™ is a topical prescription product that can help patients to grow longer, thicker and more alluring lashes. The solution is applied daily to the base of the upper eyelashes over a period of about 4 to 8 weeks. Once results are noticeable and you have achieved the desired eyelash length and thickness, treatments can be reduced. However, regular applications of Latisse™ are necessary to maintain results.
Although Latisse™ has proven to be extremely effective, some patients may experience side effects such as itchiness, redness, darkening of the skin, and inflammation. If you are interested in using this product please feel free to contact us online or by phone to schedule a consultation with board-certified plastic surgeon Steven H. Turkeltaub, MD.
