Why You Should Be Using Latisse Instead of Lash-Boost

Latisse at Neu Look Med Spa and Skin Center in San Diego, CA

Neu Look’s Eyelash Ideology

When you first walk into Neu Look Medical Spa, you may notice one thing all of the personal at the practice have in common: long eyelashes. Gita (NP) and the staff believe in the effectiveness of and personally use all products we sell or offer at Neu Look Medical Spa. Latisse is one of the highest proscribed medications in the world. Because of that, a lot of companies have tried their best to create a generic formula that doesn’t need a Nurse Practitioner or Doctor’s signature to sell. If you are not familiar with the product, it is a clear solution that is only applied once daily to the upper lash line to promote longer, more full eyelashes.

The emulsion was originally formulated to relieve glaucoma, an elevated intraocular pressure in the eyes. Patients using the prescription began to notice that their eyelashes were growing very long during their treatment. Scientists took this knowledge and reformulated a wonderful prescription that led to an alternative to eyelash extensions, strip lashes and knock-off growth serums that are potentially dangerous with no medical evidence guaranteeing results. There has been controversy surrounding this prescription serum since it first appeared on the market in 2008. There has been speculation that the product may cause darkening of the eyelid and under eyes. There have even been claims that Latisse caused darkening of the iris in blue, green and hazel eyes when being used for glaucoma. That accusation has not been confirmed since the medication has been reformulated as Latisse. Patients should not be turned away from using this product by concern that it will cause dark pigmentation in their eyes.

Controversy

Since there has been so much controversy over whether or not Latisse is a safe and effective product, why are people so quick to purchase a counterfeit version of this prescription? Brands such as Rodan + Fields, Grande Lash, Rapid Lash and more advertise that you can achieve the same results at a lesser, sometimes frankly cheap, price. The argument that the personal at Neu Look Medical Spa stands by is that if anyone (that referring to a non-certified professional in the medical or esthetics industry) can sell this product, how do brands such as Latisse stay in business if they are as great as the competitors say they are? If you could achieve safe, outstanding results without a prescription wouldn’t everyone be purchasing it? The reality is that these products are not FDA approved (like Latisse is) and they do not have the same, necessary, cutting edge technology behind them to be safe and that effective. Gita (NP) at Neu Look Medical Spa encourages her patients to simply step in for a quick and free assessment to make sure lash-growth treatments are safe for her patients. Being under medical supervision while using any type of substance developed to enhance your body or anything similar is a mature decision for your overall health.

What to Expect

When you first use Latisse, you can expect to wait approximately three months before seeing a noticeable result. However, after that time period you will see longer, thicker and healthier lashes that will consistently to grow with the continued use of the medication. You can apply the product either in the morning or at night but is only needed once daily. You will be shown the correct way to apply your Latisse upon your free consultation with Gita (NP) and be given all the knowledge you need to enjoy your result. As always, our main priority at our facility is to service you the safest way and to give you the best possible results.

Lip Injections

Lip Injections at Neu Look Skin Med Spa in San Diego California

Lip Injections are currently one of the most popular treatment options in the world. Whether you are correcting asymmetry, wanting to make them more full or replacing what has diminished over time – Gita Izadi at Neu Look Med Spa can help you achieve what you’re looking for with over 15 years of experience as a Nurse Practitioner. Juvederm Ultra or Ultra Plus, Juvederm Volbella, Juvederm Vollure and the Restylane family (Refyne, Silk) are our most popular filler choices here at Neu Look Med Spa. You will arrive 15 minutes early so Gita can apply a topical numbing cream before your injection for comfort. The lip fillers also have lidocaine mixed in them for that extra numbness to be provided.

The main ingredient in Juvederm and Restylane is hyaluronic acid which is a natural occurring component in our bodies. That being said, no one is allergic to it so there is no fear of having a negative reaction to the filler. There are no side effects from the filler, only from the injection itself being swelling, possible bruising and tenderness.

  • Juvederm Vollure by Allergan is an FDA approved for the lower face, chin, nasal labial line and jaw line. At Neu Look Med Spa we use this for lip augmentation as well. This product comes in a 1cc syringe and can be customized
  • Juvederm Ultra by Allergan is best for patients who want a more full or plump lip shape. The product comes in a 1cc syringe and is the equivalent to ¼ teaspoon. This particular filler is a thicker emulsion of hyaluronic acid that Gita can customize to give you the desired shape you want.
  • Juvederm Volbella by Allergan is thinner formula that will give you a softer look opposed to the Juvederm Ultra. This product comes in two treatment options being a ½ cc syringe and a 1 cc syringe. First time filler patients have the option to start with the smaller dosage and gradually work up to a full cc. This product (0.5 cc) is good to use for the vertical and horizonal lines on the upper lip area. It can be used for patients who don’t want to have plumper lips. The 1cc will provide an elegant volume that will look very natural and part of it can be used to soften the lines on upper lip area.
  • Restylane (Refyne, Silk) by Galderma is perfect for smoothing fine lines around the mouth and giving a natural looking result. This is a great product that will never leave you looking overdone. It comes in a 1cc syringe that injects in seamlessly.

Pre-Treatment:

  • To reduce the possibility of bruising start Arnica.
  • Reduce the intake of anti-inflammatory.
  • Reduce the intake of alcohol and vitamins.

Post Treatment :

  • You can see immediate results and 5 days post treatment you will see the final result of your lip augmentation.

What is the Difference Between Juvéderm and Juvéderm Voluma?

Juvéderm Voluma is used on the face, primarily the cheeks or chin, restoring volume to thin or hollow areas of the face.* Juvéderm is best used under the eyes, on the lips, or to treat smile lines along the folds of the mouth. Juvéderm and Juvéderm Voluma are very similar, but in terms of treatment areas, they are mutually exclusive.

 

Areas Treated With Juvéderm Voluma

The primary areas treated with Juvéderm Voluma is the cheeks and in some cases the chin. While some doctors inject Juvéderm Voluma into the lips, in most cases other dermal fillers are used for lip treatment.
