Newport Beach Latisse Eyelash Treatment

Latisse - Newport Beach Plastic Surgeon Dr. Sanjay Grover

Everyone wants long, beautiful eyelashes, right?

Many women across the nation are discovering a new way of replacing lost eyelashes with a new treatment called Latisse. It has been approved by the FDA and is specifically designed to thicken, darken and lengthen eyelashes in as little as eight weeks.

This new drug also has exciting possibilities for men and women who've lost their eyelashes due to chemotherapy treatments for cancer.

CNN Medical Corespondent Judy Fortin interviewed Mary Johnson, a 56 year old cancer survivor, who lost her hair and eyelashes as a result of her chemotherapy for breast cancer:

"She said she could put a wig on her head, but for the rest of her face she had to "fake it" by drawing in a lash line and eyebrows with cosmetics.

Johnson tried some over-the-counter lash products, but she said none of them worked.

She was smiling as she received her first dose of Latisse.

"Until you have lost your eyelashes, you don't really realize how hard it is to put eye makeup on," she said. "When you lose your eyelashes you just don't look the same."

Latisse is available from Newport Beach Plastic Surgeon Dr. Sanjay Grover whose practice specializes in facial rejuvenation, including Botox, Juvederm and Latisse.

BOTOX parties a bad idea

In a press release by the ASAPS (The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery) they want to raise awareness about the dangers of unlicensed personnel performing medical cosmetic procedures in non-clinical settings such as BOTOX and other tissue fillers at shopping malls, beauty salons or in their own homes.

There is huge concern over unlicensed or untrained personnel giving these injections and performing these procedures in non-clinical settings.
Cosmetic procedures, including tissue filler injections, laser therapies, chemical peels and skin resurfacing, should only be done under the care of properly credentialed and trained medical professionals using only products approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

The Right Filler is Key to Successful Treatment

Fillers are commonly used to treat facial lines and wrinkles, hollow cheeks, receding chins, thinning lips and wrinkles between the eyes. Other procedures such as laser rejuvenation, which can improve the skin's tone and texture, and botulinum rejuvenation, which can relax the muscles that cause wrinkling, can do many things to improve a person's appearance. However, they cannot address the loss of volume that happens with aging. Only fillers can increase the skin's volume, much like putty fills a crack.

Selecting the proper filler is an important part of the process. Some fillers are intended for superficial wrinkles and some work best for deeper wrinkles. Others are better for deep cheek hollows and facial lipoatrophy, the severe facial fat loss that can happen to people who are HIV-positive.

New First-of-Its Kind Report Shows BOTOX Cosmetic May Prevent Development of Facial Lines

Thirteen Year Experience in One Identical Twin Demonstrates Dramatic Difference in Wrinkle Development When BOTOX Cosmetic is Administered Consistently From Age 25

A new case report comparing the appearance of facial lines in identical twins, one of whom received regular BOTOX Cosmetic (botulinum toxin type A) treatments over 13 years beginning at age 25 and one of whom did not, suggests that long-term, consistent treatment with BOTOX Cosmetic may prevent the development of lines that are visible without facial muscle contraction (the so-called "imprint" or "at rest" lines most associated with the aging process). The results are being presented at the American Academy of Dermatology's Annual Winter Meeting in San Francisco.
