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.

We are officially open, thanks to Governor Hogan!

We welcome new patients and are looking forward to performing elective surgical procedures, starting the week of May 11.

This is a new day, with new safety protocols. Our goal is to keep everyone safe and respect the continued risk COVID-19 presents. For this reason, we will be instituting the following protocols:

  • We will have Sandy stationed at our entryway with sterilizer and a COVID-19 survey for our new patients to fill out. Sandy will also check your temperature and collect your paperwork at the door – our medical intake form can be filled out prior to your coming to the office, or you can fill it out after you arrive.
  • Please bring a mask for any in-office visits. If you are coming for surgery, please bring a paper mask if you have one. For any other visits, cloth masks or paper masks are fine.
  • We need any patient waiting to be seen to wait in your car until we can safely accommodate you in an exam room. We need to respect social distancing and are spacing our patients out to assure safety.
  • We can only allow the patient to come in to the office for examination. Friends or family will need to wait outside the office.
  • For those assisting our postoperative patients on the day of surgery: we ask that you kindly wait in your car and we will call you in to discuss postoperative instructions.
  • I am continuing to schedule Virtual Consultations which is exciting and new! Check out my Resources section or header at drshermak.com to get started!

I look forward to seeing you soon!

 

As of July 1st, the staff members at The Plastic Surgery Center of Maryland will no longer routinely be wearing masks following the state guidelines per Governor Hogan.

All of our staff members are vaccinated.

If any patient would prefer that the medical staff member caring for them wear a mask, please let us know and we will gladly do so.

We treat patients with compormised immune systems and we need to be respectful of their needs.

We are asking patients who are not fully vaccinated to please wear masks while in our office so that we may continue to safely accomodate our patients with weakened immune systems.

Thank you!
