When eyelashes are diminished, it may be due to a condition called hypotrichosis. People who struggle with hypotrichosis have underperforming follicles. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved the use of a chemical called bimatoprost to alleviate hypotrichosis along the ridge of the eyelids. By stimulating the follicles of the eyelashes, bimatoprost encourages them to evolve from the telogen phase to the anagen phase.[1, 2] To put it in layperson terms: the follicles go from resting to active, all thanks to the application of bimatoprost.
Latisse is formulated with 0.03% bimatoprost. It may sound like a small amount, but it can translate into big results for your lashes. Latisse is like magic. By simply applying the solution to lagging lids, Baltimore area women and men will soon see their eyelashes grow longer and fuller. The Latisse process is painless and completely non-invasive.

Preparation and Procedure
During your comprehensive consultation, Dr. Wells will explain the process of Latisse treatment in detail. It begins with a proper cleansing of the eyelids, making sure that all makeup and dead skin cells are cleared from the treatment area.
You will then learn how to apply a small droplet of Latisse to the applicator brush. This small brush is used to coat the outer ridge of the eyelash with rejuvenating Latisse serum. The active ingredient, bimatoprost, immediately goes to work stimulating the follicles of the eyelashes.
Dr. Wells might perform the inaugural application of Latisse in-office, or she may simply show you how to empower your own lashes. You will then be provided with Latisse to apply in the comfort of your own home.
After you apply the designated droplet of Latisse with your applicator brush, be sure to gently dab away any excess liquid that may linger around the lashes. Dr. Wells can advise you how often to use Latisse to maximize your benefits. Do not apply the solution more than once per day. The amazing results will appear soon enough; great lashes are worth the wait!
Latisse produces substantial and striking enhancement for the duration of its use in most patients. Improvement typically begins to show after about 1 month, with final results appearing in about 4 months.

As they say, the eyes are the windows to the soul. To frame your eyes as pleasingly as possible, consider some of the many aesthetic improvements offered at Valley Plastic Surgery & Medi-Spa.
Crow’s feet and brow lines can obscure the youthful vigor of your eyes. Wrinkles may occur for several reasons, one of which is the repetitive muscular contractions that our faces perform every day. Whenever the facial muscles express emotion, the musculature tenses up and pulls at the skin. Over time, these movements create deep creases that etch themselves indelibly into the face. Botox Cosmetic is a neuromodulator. Neuromodulators disrupt the flow of acetylcholine to facial muscles, allowing them to relax. Botox ushers a sense of serene smoothness to the face, allowing your bold new eyelashes to dominate the conversation.
Another cause of facial wrinkles is the depletion of collagen and elastin from the subcutaneous layers of skin. Without these support structures, skin develops gaps beneath its surface. To bring volume back to the under-eye hollows and other regions of the face, consider the benefits of a dermal filler such as Juvéderm or Laviv.
Now that you have achieved proper support below the surface of your skin, consider the outer layers. A chemical peel can gently erase fine lines and discolorations. Chemical peels also treat persistent acne scars and irregular texture, delivering an even tone and glow to your complexion.
