A Safe Alternative to Eyelash Extensions

Posted on September 4, 2018 by admin

Eyelash extensions are a popular way to enhance the length and thickness of natural eyelashes, however they come with some significant drawbacks. These can include allergic reactions caused by the glue used to attach artificial eyelashes, infections caused by bacteria trapped by the artificial extensions, and even loss of remaining eyelashes as the extensions pull on individual eyelash hairs.

Fortunately there is an FDA-approved treatment that is proven to be effective at darkening, thickening, and lengthening one’s natural eyelashes. This treatment is marketed under the name Latisse – it’s available as a liquid that is applied to the upper eyelids at nighttime. Results start to show after around 2 months – the best results are achieved after 3 to 4 months of daily use. Latisse does not produce permanent benefits, but you can switch to a lower dose after 4 months to maintain results for as long as desired.

You can also continue to use mascara to further enhance your eyelashes when using Latisse, the combination will produce very noticeable improvements. Latisse has also been used to treat eyelash loss caused by chemotherapy.

Occasional side effects are caused by using Latisse, so we strongly recommend consulting with a doctor before starting treatment. Latisse cannot be used by patients suffering from certain medical conditions, or by pregnant or nursing mothers. And as in all treatments, contact the doctor if you experience any unusual symptoms or discomfort.

We are highly experienced in prescribing and supervising the use of Latisse, and can help you evaluate whether Latisse is a good choice to treat your thinning eyelashes, as well as showing you the proper way to apply the medication.
