Latisse and Blinc for Lashes

Who wouldn’t want longer, fuller eyelashes? Mascara is listed on most women’s products they couldn’t go without for that very reason. Up until a decade ago, layering coats and coats of mascara OR sitting for 3 hours to have a full set of lash extensions were the only ways to achieve *wow* lashes. Thank goodness Latisse and Blinc mascara is accessible now!

Latisse is an eyelash solution that promises longer, fuller lashes. Owned by the makers of Botox, Latisse went through many FDA trials to make sure it is safe for daily use. When utilized correctly, Latisse will lengthen and thicken your natural eyelashes in about 8 weeks. Latisse is FDA approved for eyelashes, but is currently being tested for scalp hair growth as well.

LatisseBlinc Mascara

Our patients love Latisse because of the results, but they also love that they can combine it with Blinc mascara for a *wow* effect. Blinc is different than typical mascara because it actually creates “tubes” around your lashes, causing it not to smear like other mascaras. This is a staff and patient favorite because it will last all day.

Latisse for baldness?

Approved by the FDA in 2008 for eyelash growth, our friends at Allergan will begin testing LATISSE for growing hair on the scalp. The clinical trial will determine if LATISSE is effective for male and female pattern baldness, types of alopecia. If LATISSE proves effective, it is reported that it would most likely be sold as a cream that could be applied to the scalp. We have no idea what that might cost but it is a potential treatment for many of our patients, male and female, who experience hair loss. Of course, it could be many years before the product actually makes it to the market. Stay tuned.
