Latisse®/Grande LASH-MD™ in La Jolla, CA
Shumway Cosmetic Surgery, accredited by the Joint Commission and awarded the Gold Seal of Approval which reflects our commitment to excellence and quality patient care, offers Latisse® and GrandeLASH-MD™ to local residents requiring skin rejuvenation.
Your eyelashes frame your eyes and bring out their natural beauty. But clunky mascara can smear and run, which is far from attractive. Instead of showing people the windows to your soul, you are only showing that you need waterproof mascara. If only there were a way to make your natural lashes look incredible without mascara. Now there is!
What are Latisse® and GrandeLASH-MD™?
Latisse® and GrandeLASH-MD™ are prescription applications that help you grow beautiful, long, thick eyelashes so that you can throw away all of those dried up, messy tubes of mascara. You apply these products at home before going to bed, and after just a few weeks, you have long, lush eyelashes.
What are the Differences Between Latisse® and GrandeLASH-MD™?
While individual patient results vary, one of the primary differences between these two products is how quickly you may see full results. Latisse® may take up to 16 weeks, and GrandeLASH-MD™ may take as little as three to five weeks.
How Do I Know If Latisse® or GrandeLASH-MD™ is Right for Me?
You should not use Latisse® or GrandeLASH-MD™ if you are allergic to any of the ingredients that are used in the products. You should follow the instructions carefully, and some side effects have been associated with Latisse® and GrandeLASH-MD™. For these reasons and because the products are used so closely to your eyes, you should schedule a consultation appointment with Dr. Shumway at our La Jolla office if you are considering Latisse® or GrandeLASH-MD™.
