Latisse Promotion

Double your eyelashes

Get Big, Bold Eyelashes with Latisse®!Latisse® Results

Latisse® is the first and only prescription treatment approved by the FDA for the cosmetic growth of eyelashes.  It is applied once daily to grow eyelashes, making your own eyelashes thicker, darker, and longer by keeping them in their growth phase. Latisse® users see results in four weeks, with the full effect taking 16 weeks.  On average, users experience more than double the thickness in their eyelashes with a 25% improvement in length, and an 18% improvement in darkness.

With regular applications along the lash line of the upper eyelid, Latisse® gradually encourages growth of longer, thicker and darker eyelashes. Latisse® isn’t meant to be applied to the lower eyelid. For full results, you must use the medication daily for at least two months. Eyelash improvements remain as long as you continue to use the medication. When you stop using Latisse®, your eyelashes will eventually return to their original appearance.

Our Latisse® treatments come conveniently packaged in a 30 day supply of applicator brushes.

Skin Cancer Screening

Looking out for Skin Cancer

Get a total body check to screen for Skin Cancer because early detection is the key.

Dermatologists have special training that includes the diagnosis and management of skin cancers. When you see a dermatologist for a complete skin checkup, expect a 10-15-minute visit, including a review of your medical history and a head-to-toe skin examination. This is a good time to ask about any spots you are worried about; your dermatologist can educate you about what to look for, such as any changes in the size, color, borders, or shape of a mole.

Why have a total body check done by a dermatologist?Skin Cancer Screening

  • Your skin covers and protects your body and is very important for your health. Skin Cancer is the most common type of skin cancer in the US and affects over a million people a year.
  • Early detection is the key- if detected early treatment is simple, quick and effective in the most common forms of Skin Cancer.
  •  A total body check is quick, easy and painless.

When it comes to protecting yourself against skin cancer, the key tip is to get your clothes off – all of them.

Although it’s common sense, when checking for dubious spots, lesions, freckles or moles, you should check your entire body. Evidence suggests that doctors – and those of us who do self-checks – don’t check the entire body.

Fortunately, the majority of skin cancers found each year are basal cell or squamous cell – the types that have a very high chance of being cured. The National Cancer Institute estimated that fewer than 1,000 people died from these “non-melanoma” cancers in 2008. Melanoma is another story, affecting over 62,000 Americans a year and causing over 8,400 deaths. The majority of melanomas occur in older patients but almost 1 percent are diagnosed under age 20 and almost 8 percent are found between ages 20 and 34. So you’re never too young to start thinking about ways to prevent skin cancer and ways to keep track of what’s happening with your skin.
