Eyes are one of the most important facial features from an aesthetic perspective. Sometimes the eyelashes may tend to become thinner due to aging, disease, or other factors, which can adversely impact the eye appearance. This condition can be corrected without the need for cosmetic surgery using an innovative product called Latisse.
Highly experienced and reputed oculoplastic surgeon, Dr. Jennifer Hui, provides both surgical and non-surgical treatments to enhance the appearance of the eyes. With a board certification from the American Board of Ophthalmology, Dr. Hui is in the best position to provide delicate aesthetic procedures involving the eyes. She receives patients from Palm Springs, Palm Desert, La Quinta, Coachella Valley, and surrounding communities.
Simple and Effective Solution
The patient can easily apply Latisse to the upper eyelashes every night. It will gradually produce fuller, darker, and longer eyelashes with consistent usage. Most patients will achieve optimal outcomes in about four months of usage. This simple, non-invasive treatment does not involve the usual risks or downtime that is a part of an eyelid surgery or other invasive procedures.
The treatment provider must determine carefully whether the patient is an appropriate candidate for Latisse. Once the treatment begins, a follow-up will be required after some time to determine the progress and treatment response. The FDA approved Latisse in 2008 to treat hypotrichosis, which is another term for the condition of inadequate eyelashes.
Dr. Hui is a leading eye surgeon providing safe, effective and proven treatments to her patients in Palm Springs, Palm Desert, La Quinta, Coachella Valley, and nearby locations. She will recommend Latisse to suitable candidates who need a natural enhancement of the length, thickness, and darkness of eyelashes.
Latisse is the first and only treatment approved by the FDA for improving the appearance of eyelashes. The product is available only through qualified providers as a once-daily prescription treatment.
Continuity of Treatment
Latisse treatment is applied to the base of the upper eyelashes using a sterile, disposable applicator. The treatment must be used consistently as prescribed in order to achieve the desirable results. Continuity of the treatment throughout the prescribed time period must be maintained.
With proper application and consistency of usage, the patient can see noticeable improvement in the eyelashes in as little as two months. However, if the patient discontinues the treatment at any point of time, the condition of the eyelashes will return to its original level in a few weeks.
Prior to the application of Latisse treatment on a daily basis as prescribed by the expert, the patient must wash hands and face thoroughly. Any makeup or contact lenses should be removed. The patient may replace the contact lenses in about 20 minutes after the treatment process.
Only one drop of the Latisse medication should be placed on the applicator. Once this is done, the patient should quickly draw the applicator carefully across the skin of the upper eyelid margin at the base of the eyelashes. The application can be made from the inner part of the lash line to the outer part.
