When patients visit our office for a consultation regarding skin concerns, we discuss the various treatments available to address their unique situations. However, we also make it a priority to review each patient’s options for beginning or improving his or her daily skin care regimen. At the practice of Dr. Glen Crawford, we are focused on providing our patients with great-looking skin every single day.
To fulfill this mission, our practice offers a full line of cosmetic skin care products that complement our in-office treatments, which can often prolong the results of facial procedures such as microdermabrasion, chemical peels, and other options. By employing a preventative approach to skin care, we hope to address many common skin concerns before they affect your skin. Skin care products available at our practice can be used to cleanse, moisturize, exfoliate, and promote the anti-aging properties of skin. Antioxidants, emollients, and sunscreens actively work to prevent future damage while retinols stimulate cell turnover and slow the signs of aging. By remaining proactive about the health of your skin, we can help you look your best all year long.
We carry a range of products from several popular professional skin care lines, including:
Most of the products we carry are paraben-, preservative-, and fragrance-free. Oftentimes, these products are used in conjunction with aesthetic procedures to nourish the skin of the treated area as well as aid in the healing process.
LATISSE® Eyelash Lengthening
Developed by Allergan, LATISSE® is the only clinically-proven technique to be approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the treatment of insufficient eyelash growth, a condition medically referred to as hypotrichosis. This prescription-strength solution can effectively help lengthen, thicken, and darken upper eyelashes for an enhanced appearance over an extended period of time. By prescribing LATISSE® based on your unique needs, our experienced Aestheticians may be able to reduce your reliance on mascara and other eyelash enhancers while helping you achieve longer, fuller lashes.
How LATISSE® Works
LATISSE® is composed of a bimatoprost ophthalmic solution designed to increase both the number and length of upper eyelashes through daily, topical application. Initial results can often be seen as early as four weeks into treatment, but LATISSE® should continue to be applied on a nightly basis for an aesthetician-recommended amount of time. As the treatment progresses, results should continue to improve until optimal results are achieved typically around the 16th week of treatment.
The progressive results of LATISSE® may vary among individuals, and some patients may experience minor side effects including irritation, redness, itching, and darkening of skin in the treatment area. Additionally, patients with certain medical conditions and allergies may not be good candidates for LATISSE®. A comprehensive overview of treatment instructions, potential results, and possible side effects with be discussed with you during your initial consultation to ensure you are an ideal candidate for LATISSE®.
