Latisse vs. Eyelash Extensions

Posted on May 5, 2017 by Ella Fedonenko

Long, thick, luxurious lashes have the remarkable ability to make a woman feel more beautiful and give her that extra boost of confidence in her ability to take on the world. Cosmetics can create the illusion of bolder, more prominent lashes, but the temporary effect can have a long lasting negative impact. It’s an unfortunate reality that regularly using heavy mascaras and falsies can cause your natural lashes to become brittle and sparse. Luckily, there are a few alternatives available to elongate and accentuate lashes without the harm caused by trying to remove stubborn mascara or glue. (more…)

The Science Behind Effective Laser Hair Removal

Posted on May 31, 2016 by Ella Fedonenko

Laser hair removal is the most effective way to remove unwanted hair. In some patients, laser hair removal is permanent, while others may require “touch-ups” annually. Although sessions you undergo for laser hair removal are quite straightforward, there’s a great deal of science behind the procedure. Laser is actually an acronym of “Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation,” and the device releases light of a specific wavelength. Lasers weren’t originally used for the purpose of hair removal, but researchers noted in the 1970’s that using lasers for other medical uses resulted in hair loss.  (more…)

 

Latisse instead of an Eyelift? New Research on Skin Rejuvenation

Posted on January 4, 2016 by Ella Fedonenko

Latisse is not just good for growing lush eyelashes, but it could also be the answer for non-invasive, non-surgical blepharoplasty (eye lift surgery). As you may know, the substance has been used for many years by ophthalmologists to treat patients with glaucoma. In that application, where drops actually go into the eye, bimatoprost (the pre-Latisse formulation of the same substance), acts to reduce pressure within the eye. Eyelash growth was noticed as a side effect — and soon Latisse was created, and then FDA-approved, for that newly discovered desirable result, formerly considered a side effect.

Using Latisse as Prescribed

Posted on July 25, 2014 by Ella Fedonenko

The allure of full and lush eyelashes has lead thousands of Americans to experiment with the cosmetic drug Latisse. Approved by the FDA 2008, Latisse is a prescription drug although it is easily obtained without a prescription through many salons or the internet. As with any prescription drug, it is especially important to use Latisse under the direction of a doctor. Many of those who acquire Latisse without a prescription use it with little or no knowledge of the possible side-effects when applied incorrectly.

Itchy eyes and redness are the most common side effects associated with Latisse. This is attributed to the product accidentally entering the eye when applied incorrectly. Latisse is to be applied only to the upper eyelash line and in small amounts. Without the proper instruction, the product is commonly over-applied, often to both the upper and lower lash lines.
It’s very important to only use Latisse under the direction of a doctor.

Thousands of people achieve the desired results of longer, fuller eyelashes by using Latisse, but it is important to remember that it is a prescription drug to be acquired and used properly. To learn more about Latisse, call us at 323 525 1516.
