Have you ever wanted Longer Thicker More Beautiful Eye Lashes? Perhaps Latisse is for You

Posted by Dr. Perry in Blepharoplasty, Current Events, Facial Rejuvenation

Latisse is now available at Chrysalis Cosmetics.

With all the new products available this year to enhance your look it can be confusing, however one you will want to check out is Latisse. You may have already noticed some dramatic eyelashes as we are seeing more and more people enhancing their eyes with Latisse. This is a new product from the makers of Botox and Juvederm – Allergan. Allergan also makes Vivite as well as Silicone and Saline Breast implants.
Latisse grows the eyelashes in about a month. Long eyelashes tend to set off the eyes and can enhance the appearance. A prescription is needed to treat the hypotrichosis (small hairs) of the eyelashes – so a visit to the office is required. We can demonstrate how to correctly grow your lashes into a thicker, longer, and darker more beautiful lash.
Latisse was just approved by the FDA and we have been seeing some great results already. Latisse works by increasing the anagen (growth) phase of the hair cycle by lengthening it and stimulating this phase. The product was originally designed to help people with glaucoma, however the patients and doctors noticed that not only did the bimatoprost (Latisse) solution (a prostaglandin) decrease the intraocular pressure it also grew their eyelashes and eyebrow longer thicker and darker.
Of course individual results may vary. We look forward to seeing you soon.
