Say Good-Bye to Eyelash Extensions, Hello to LATISSE™

HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwire - February 24, 2009) - Dr. Michel Siegel, Houston plastic surgeon, introduces LATISSE™, the latest innovation in eyelash extension technology, to his line of non-invasive facial enhancement offerings. LATISSE™ is the first and only eyelash growth treatment to be approved by the FDA as being safe and effective.

LATISSE™, developed by Allergan, is a prescription treatment for hypotrichosis, the medical term used to describe an inadequate amount of eyelashes. Hypotrichosis can be caused by a genetic disposition, childhood illness, medical conditions, and age. Whatever the reason, LATISSE™ can restore eyelashes to be thicker, fuller and darker.

With a nightly application of LATISSE™ to the eyelid at the base of the eyelashes, eyelash growth is gradually stimulated, resulting in noticeably improved eyelashes after 2 months. However, if the use of LATISSE™ is discontinued, eyelashes will return to their original length and fullness.

LATISSE™ is an excellent choice for many patients to improve the thickness and length of their eyelashes. Patients with previous or existing eye conditions such as eye pressure problems will need to consult their doctor before using LATISSE™.

Possible side effects are minimal and may include eye itchiness and redness. Less common side effects associated with use of LATISSE™ include skin darkening, eye irritation, dryness, or redness of the eyelids on the skin near the application.
