Kirkwood Eye Center isn’t just here to help you see better—we can help you look better, too! Most women desire longer, thicker eyelashes, and many have turned to eyelash extensions. While eyelash extensions look great, they are expensive to maintain and often result in further thinning of lashes over time due to traction alopecia (loss of lashes due to the pulling and weight of the extensions on the natural lash). We have also treated many patients with allergic reactions or irrigation from the adhesive use to apply the extensions. Kirkwood Eye Center is excited to offer our patients an alternative, LATISSE Solutions!
Kirkwood Eye Center offers in office consultations to determine if LATISSE is right for you! LATISSE Solution is a prescription treatment for hypotrichosis and is used to grow eyelashes, making each eyelash longer, thicker, and darker. Hypotrichosis is another name for having inadequate or too few eyelashes.
LATISSE is believed to grow eyelashes in two ways: by increasing the length of the eyelash growth and by increasing the number of eyelashes in this growth phase. It is a daily eyelash solution you apply each evening to the base of your upper eyelashes. Latisse users begin to see eyelash growth at 4 weeks with full results after 16 weeks. The growth is gradual overnight, over time. The most common side effects after using LATISSE are an itching sensation in the eyes and/or eye redness. For more information, call our office at (817) 416.2010 or schedule a LATISSE assessment.
