Botox and Latisse Cosmetic Specialists Orange County
In some cases, non-surgical cosmetic treatments can improve your appearance or further enhance the results of your cosmetic surgery. Clarity Eye Group offers Botox Cosmetic and Latisse to help patients achieve their ideal look. Botox Cosmetic is an injectable agent that is commonly used to ease facial lines and wrinkles that come with age, environmental factors, and stress. Latisse is a topical solution that is applied to the eyelid in order to promote the growth of longer, thicker, darker eyelashes. Together, Botox and Latisse can take years off the face and provide patients with a stunning new look. Read the paragraphs below for more information on Botox and Latisse.
Botox in Orange County
Botox is made from botulinum toxin type A, a bacterium-produced neuromuscular toxin that is sufficiently diluted to be a safe, effective method of facial rejuvenation. Very small amounts of Botox are injected through a small needle into targeted areas on the patient’s skin. Most of our Botox Orange County patients recover very quickly from this procedure with no complications. Patients often are advised to rest for several hours following the injections and refrain from massaging the treated area or engaging in strenuous activities for 24 hours. The results of a single Botox treatment can last up to six months.
Benefits of Botox Cosmetic
Botox Cosmetic is most often used to reduce frown lines on the forehead or around the nose and to treat “crow’s feet,” wrinkles that appear around the corners of the eyes. The result of a Botox treatment is a more youthful look, diminishing or even removing obvious signs of aging in most patients. Also, there is little preparation involved with receiving Botox in Huntington Beach / Orange County. The procedure can be done in a doctor’s office, usually in an hour or less, prompting many to call it a “lunchtime procedure.”
Latisse in Orange County
Latisse is made from Lumigan, a medication that is used in glaucoma treatments. It is available by prescription and is applied by the patient daily by means of sterile applicators. The patient need only dab Latisse onto the upper eyelid, from where it will naturally spread to the lower lid. Although experts are not sure how Latisse works, they believe that it may increase the length of time that eyelashes remain in a growth phase. The results of Latisse are temporary; however, they can be maintained with every-other-day use of the medication.
The Benefits of Latisse
Latisse has been shown to dramatically increase the length, thickness and darkness of eyelashes. It is ideal for people with hypotrichosis of the eyelashes, a disorder that impairs eyelash growth, or anyone who is dissatisfied with the length or fullness of their lashes. Studies have shown that Latisse can result in a 25 percent increase in eyelash length, a 106 percent growth in eyelash thickness and an 18 percent boost in eyelash darkness.
