Marina del Rey, California (PRWEB) March 11, 2009
The surgeons at Marina Plastic Surgery Associates (http://www.marinaplasticsurgery.com) announce a first-of-its-kind treatment for growing darker, fuller, longer eyelashes without pills, injections, or surgery. This innovative treatment, LATISSE™, is a topical solution that enhances eyelash growth, and is available from their Los Angeles plastic surgery office.
"It's always a good thing when we can encourage the body to enhance the appearance naturally," says Dr. Grant Stevens, board certified plastic surgeon and Medical Director of Marina Plastic Surgery Associates. "LATISSE is simple to apply and actually encourages darker, thicker, longer eyelash growth. At Marina Plastic Surgery we are excited to be one of the first practices to offer this unique, new product to our patients."
The effective ingredient in LATISSE, bimatoprost, is thought to extend the eyelash growth cycle and increase the number of individual eyelashes that grow. This results in longer, fuller, darker eyelashes that won't run or smudge even when patients swim, exercise, or get teary eyed.
Improvements from LATISSE appear gradually as eyelashes grow in and are replaced. In as little as 4 weeks, patients should begin to notice their lashes becoming thicker and fuller. These improvements will continue, as lashes grow longer, with ultimate results reached in 16 weeks. To sustain enhanced eyelash growth, daily treatments must be continued; otherwise, lashes will gradually return to their pre-treatment state.
"Consistency and accuracy of application are vital to the effectiveness of this product, which is why LATISSE is available only through a doctor's prescription," explains Dr. David Stoker, a board-certified plastic surgeon at Marina Plastic Surgery Associates. "We take the time to carefully instruct our patients in its proper use to optimize their results."
Patients perform daily applications of LATISSE themselves in the convenience and privacy of their own home. The product is applied with a special applicator that is traced along the skin at the base of the upper eyelids, in the same way liquid eyeliner is applied.
In addition to LATISSE eyelash growth treatment, Marina Plastic Surgery near Los Angeles offers many non-invasive ways to look younger and healthier, such as Fraxel® laser treatments and BOTOX® Cosmetic, in addition to their extensive offering of cosmetic surgery procedures.
