As one of the Los Angeles area’s most popular medical spas, Skin by Lovely helps Santa Monica patients achieve youthful, full eyelashes. Age and other factors cause lashes to thin, but treatment with Latisse can double eyelash thickness and increase length by 25 percent. Although it is a safe and 100 percent effective treatment, there are a few common misconceptions about the product.

One of the most persistent myths is that the treatment changes eye color. When the active ingredient in Latisse was used to treat glaucoma and applied directly into the eye, it caused eye color changes for some patients. However, when the drug is only applied to the lashes and at a lower dose, this side effect is not seen. In some patients, a darkening of the skin along the lash line may occur, but this is completely reversible when treatment is stopped. No blindness or changes in vision have ever occurred.

Skin by Lovely in Santa Monica offers world-class beauty and skin care treatments performed by qualified, highly trained clinicians who put your health and well-being first. For longer, thicker and darker lashes in as little as four months, visit Skin by Lovely in Santa Monica for a professional consultation, and see if Latisse is right for you.
