Why Latisse?

Long, elegant lashes are a highly admired trait. Many women struggle to achieve the look by gluing on fake lashes or using thickening mascaras that promise to lengthen and define. Unfortunately, these are only temporary, time-consuming solutions. Until now there has never been an FDA-approved eyelash enhancement product on the market that can really achieve those long, elegant lashes so many of us desire.

Latisse, from Allergen, is a prescription treatment that is intended to treat hypotrichosis (the condition of having too few eyelashes). One of the main ingredients in Latisse is bimatoprost, which is known to stimulate lash growth. This medication was “discovered” after use for its original indication, glaucoma. Individuals using these Bimatoprost drops developed full lashes as a surprisingly positive side-effect. Latisse is not provided as a drop for the eye, but rather as a solution to brush directly onto the lash line.

The before and after photos of proven eyelash growth on those who use Latisse are truly amazing, but as with all products and procedures, there are potential risks and side effects. Some women may experience redness, itching, irritation and dryness of the eyes. Discolorations of the skin and potential allergic reactions are also a possible risk. Speaking to Dr. Shermak is the best way to determine if Latisse may be right for you.

COVID-19 Update 03/15/2022

This is a new day, with new safety protocols. Our goal is to keep everyone safe and respect the continued concerns COVID-19 may present.

The state of Maryland is now fortunately downgraded to Yellow Status. COVID stress on the medical system has lessened and most areas in the state no longer mandate masks.

Currently in our office we are maintaining sterile surfaces and compulsive cleaning protocols – as always. We are requesting information about vaccination status, to particularly better help us prepare for patients interested in surgical procedures.

We are not mandating masks. We do respect our patients’ wishes and will wear a mask when requested to do so. We want our patients to be absolutely comfortable. All of our staff are vaccinated.

This is certainly an evolving issue and we will continue to pivot as COVID statistics change – hopefully for the better! Thank you!
