FREDERICKSBURG, Va., Feb. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Doctors with Plastic Surgery Services of Fredericksburg are the first plastic surgery group in the area to offer LATISSE(TM), the new FDA-approved prescription treatment for inadequate or insufficient eyelashes, growing them darker, fuller and longer. LATISSE's maker, Allergan, has launched several medical aesthetic offerings such as BOTOX(R) and Juvederm(TM).
The active ingredient in LATISSE(TM) was initially approved as a medical product to lower eye pressure in people with glaucoma. Patients who were treated for this eye condition experienced noticeable eyelash growth as a side effect.
Available only through a doctor, LATISSE(TM) is prescribed as a daily treatment applied to the base of the upper eyelashes with a single use, sterile applicator. Patients can experience longer, fuller and darker lashes in as few as eight weeks, with full results in 16 weeks. To maintain the benefits of LATISSE(TM), continued treatment is required. If the product is discontinued, eyelashes will eventually return to where they were prior to treatment over a period of weeks to months. As with all prescription products, it is important to use LATISSE(TM) under the close supervision of your doctor. Prospective users are encouraged to visit www.latisse.com.
"Many of our patients are looking for lash extension," says Lesi Beamon Mackey, practice administrator for the group, "and a non-surgical option that has both FDA approval and is available only through a doctor's office can provide the safety, assurance and satisfaction most women are looking for so they can look their best."
