Respected plastic surgeon in Orange County offers Latisse eyelash treatment
Thinning or sparse eyelashes can bother some women. Although mascara can be promoted for lengthening or adding volume to eyelashes, the truth is the results are only temporary. Once it rains or the makeup is removed, women are left with eyelashes that remain thin or sparse. Fortunately, there is a non-invasive treatment available at The Institute of Cosmetic and Reconstructive Surgery in Orange County. We offer Latisse, a prescription treatment for hypotrichosis (insufficient eyelashes) to grow eyelashes longer, fuller, and darker. This tested and proven product is approved by the FDA.
If you want to explore this popular eyelash treatment, we recommend scheduling a consultation with our respected plastic surgeon, Dr. Thuan Nguyen. He will review your medical history; however, it is important to tell him if you have a history of eye conditions. He will ask you about medications and herbal supplements you currently take. It is important to inform him if you take medication for eye problems. If you are a candidate for Latisse, Dr. Nguyen will tailor a treatment plan to meet your needs.
You will receive instructions for using Latisse nightly. You simply apply the product to the upper eyelid with a sterile applicator. Do not apply it to the lower lid and blot excess solution with a tissue. It is important to avoid touching the tip of the bottle or applicator because contamination by common bacteria can cause infections. If you wear contact lenses, remove them prior to applying Latisse. Reinsert the contact lenses 15 minutes after the application.
A clinical study was conducted across the country that included 278 participants ages 22 to 78. By week 16, the results showed that 78 percent of the participants experienced a significant increase in overall eyelash prominence. This included longer, fuller, and darker eyelashes. Although optimal results will not be achieved overnight, you can count on fuller eyelashes after eight weeks. By weeks 12 to 16, you can enjoy optimal results.
William Shakespeare said, “The eyes are the windows to your soul.” It is no wonder so many women want their eyes to be framed by beautiful, long, and full eyelashes. Do you want to explore Latisse? Dr. Nguyen would love to talk with you about your goals and determine if Latisse is right for you. Schedule a consultation with him by calling
