Achieve stunning, luxurious lashes without the use of glues, extensions, or mascara
Latisse is the first FDA-approved drug specifically indicated to promote eyelash growth. Allergan, the makers of BOTOX and Juvederm, also make Latisse.
According to Allergan, Latisse users can expect to experience longer, fuller, and darker eyelashes in as little as eight weeks, with full results in 16 weeks. Once our San Diego Latisse treatments have stopped, eyelashes will slowly return to their pre-treatment appearance. The prescription requires a brief medical evaluation from a physician to make certain there are no contraindications. Dr. Karam will make the appropriate recommendation to an eye doctor in the San Diego area.
Beautiful long eyelashes have always been highly desired by women across cultures. They create a warm, feminine quality that universally warms and enhances the intrinsic beauty of the eyes. For years, a variety of mascara products have been put on the market to create this attractive look. Today, Latisse in San Diego, the first FDA-approved drug specifically indicated to promote eyelash growth, is giving mascara a run for its money. In 8-16 weeks of use, users will experience fuller, longer, and darker eyelashes without the need for mascara.
Even though Latisse is used for cosmetic enhancement of the upper eyelashes, it is not mascara. It is an FDA-approved medical drug that is manufactured by Allergan, the makers of BOTOX and Juvederm, specifically indicated for creating longer, thicker, and darker eyelashes.
Latisse’s active ingredient is Lumigan, a glaucoma drug. According to Allergan, Latisse was well-tolerated in its clinical trials, with the most common side effects being eye redness, itchy eyes, and skin hyperpigmentation. Most of these are reversible once it is stopped. The overall side effect rate is 4% according to the Allergan.
In order to know if our San Diego Latisse treatments are right for you, it is required that all new users have an evaluation by a physician. Certain drugs, eye drops, and eye conditions can increase the risk of other side effects. If you would like more information, schedule a confidential consultation with Dr. Karam at his San Diego offices.
