Glamorous and bountiful eyelashes have been considered one of the most attractive features for women throughout the decades. For women who do not naturally possess thick, long eyelashes, some of the solutions can be uncomfortable or damaging. Having thin eyelashes is not just a cosmetic issue, there are medical reasons for what is termed Hypotrichosis. The most common causes are thyroid conditions, however missing lashes can also indicate more serious issues, so it is important to monitor any eyelash loss and seek advice from a board-certified medical professional if anything seems abnormal. Thin eyelashes can be inherited, or can develop due to disease or nervous habits. The most recommended correction for short or thin eyelashes is Latisse. This medication is now FDA approved and has many people jumping at the chance to have their own longer, thicker lashes. The product is also effective in growing and thickening eyebrow hair.


Due to strict regulations applied by the FDA, Latisse has been tested for absolute safety. To ensure that your short, thin lashes is not related to a deeper medical issue, please contact us to schedule a consultation to discuss the best treatment for your thin, short lashes.


If you have thin or non-existent eyelashes and are seeking a viable solution, Kwan Dermatology can assist you in deciding if Latisse is the best option for eyelash growth. While some home remedies, such as applying castor oil to your lashes or adding omega 3 fatty acids to your diet are helpful, a professional consultation is needed to determine the most effective treatment.


Mascara can be a thing of the past with Latisse, saving you time in the morning and making it easier to enjoy the water without fear of your mascara running, or going without makeup and looking like your eyes disappeared. Latisse is an effective and easy-to-use solution.


Ever since Latisse came on the market as an option for people who wanted to grow more luscious, full lashes, the momentum has not stopped. As we described, there are some useful solutions for stimulating eyelash growth — such as adding vitamin B or Omega 3 fatty acids to your diet, or applying castor oil to the lashes before bed, but for those who are seeking a more accelerated solution, Latisse is the go-to treatment for stimulating eyelash growth where they may have previously been sparse or non-existent. Latisse lengthens, thickens, and darkens eyelashes in a few short months. If you would like to grow and thicken your lashes, please contact Kwan Dermatology to schedule a consultation.
