First and Only FDA Approved Treatment for Eyelash Growth

Cohasset, MA (PressExposure) February 20, 2009 -- South Shore Skin Center, one of the most progressive dermatology practices in Massachusetts with offices in Plymouth and Cohasset, has recently announced the availability of Latisse, the first and only FDA approved treatment to grow eyelashes longer, thicker and darker, made by Allergan.

South Shore Skin Center, catering to thousands of patients south of Boston, has been ahead of the curve when it comes to introducing the latest cosmetic dermatology products and treatments.

South Shore Skin Center is one of the first physician’s offices in the area to offer Latisse. Latisse treats Hypotrichosis, an inadequacy of the eyelashes, by increasing their growth with regard to length, thickness and darkness. It is available only by prescription. Cancer patients use Latisse to regenerate the eyelashes.

Latisse is applied once daily to the upper eyelashes. Patients can expect longer, fuller and darker eyelashes within four weeks, with full results in 16 weeks. Latisse is not meant to work in place of mascara.

Dr. Richard Eisen and Dr. Ramzi Saad, dermatologists at South Shore Skin Center can advise individuals whether or not Latisse is right for them.

Individuals who are interested in learning more about Latisse should contact South Shore Skin Center in Cohasset (781) 383-3340 or Plymouth (508) 747-0711.

“Latisse is a highly effective, unique product that is ideal for individuals with sparse eyelashes and for patients undergoing chemotherapy. It is a breakthrough beauty-enhancing product available only by prescription,” noted Dr. Saad.
