Full, natural-looking eyelashes can now be achieved through a prescription treatment called Latisse®. Latisse is the first and only eyelash treatment approved by the FDA to help grow longer, fuller and darker eyelashes and treat hypotrichosis, a condition that includes having inadequate or not enough eyelashes.
Latisse contains bimatoprost, an active ingredient that improves the appearance of your lashes and is often found in glaucoma medication. While the precise science of the treatment is not known, research suggests that the number of hairs and duration of the growth process are increased by bimatoprost.
This prescription medication is applied topically to the base of the eyelashes once a day, after makeup and contact lenses have been removed and any other skincare products have already been applied. While it does not replace mascara, Latisse offers an attractive complement to help further enhance full, long and beautiful lashes.
The results of Latisse are visible after 4 weeks, with full results appearing after 16 weeks. You can track the progress of your results through photographs. Side effects of Latisse are rare but may include itching, redness or dryness in the eye area. You should not use Latisse if you have an active eye infection or broken skin or irritated skin on the eyelid. Call your doctor today to find out if Latisse is right for you.
LaRoche-Posay is a line of prestigious skin care products that contain selenium-rich Thermal Spring Water from the French village the company was named for. This highly-purified spring water with high levels of selenium helps maintain the physiological balance of the skin through rich anti-oxidants to preserve healthy skin cells. These products also contain anti-inflammatory ingredients to help treat skin conditions such as acne, rosacea and aging.
LaRoche-Posay products are as safe as they are effective, with all products tested on sensitive skin and guaranteed hypoallergenic and non-comedogenic. These products are designed for everyday use, and offer full protection against aging, sun damage, acne, redness and more. There are specific products available that target each of these skin types, providing the necessary treatment to produce effective results.
Some of the products available from LaRoche-Posay include moisturizers, cleansers, toners, hydrating gels, repair creams, sunscreen and more.

The SkinCeuticals line of skin care products is specially designed and formulated using pharmaceutical-grade ingredients to provide three-fold treatment for the correction of past damage, maintenance of current skin health and protection against damage in the future. From creams and cleansers for the removal of oils and dead skin to sunscreens with antioxidants for the prevention of skin cancer, SkinCeuticals offers both corrective and preventative treatment to give you the smooth, radiant, healthy skin you deserve.
MD Forté® is a comprehensive skin care line featuring products with alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA) to stimulate the exfoliation and moisturization of the skin, two processes that tend to decrease with age and sun damage. These products will help maintain the smooth, full appearance of your youthful skin, and also help reverse any premature signs of aging.
MD Forte products use glycolic acid, a form of AHA, to gently peel away dry, dead layers of skin to reveal a smooth, flawless complexion. Unlike comparable products, MD Forte products contain two to three times higher levels of glycolic acid to deliver highly effective results. Patients often notice their skin feeling softer and smoother after just a few days, with visible results beginning after two to six weeks. You may experience mild tingling when using these products, but most patients are not bothered by this sensation.
As a prestigious line of skin care products, MD Forte products are available only from a doctor. All of our doctors are knowledgeable about MD Forte products, and can recommend the appropriate products for your individual skin in order to achieve the best possible results.
