"I highly recommend Dr. John O'Brien. I've had two separate occurrences of basal cell cancer on my ears due to too much sun over time. These were about 8 months apart and unrelated. The first occurrence: Dr. O'Brien performed surgery to remove it. The surgery was performed on the day that there was a mobile lab at his office and Dr. O was able to test tissue samples on the spot to ensure all the cancer was removed. Dr. O'Brien not only removed the cancer but did a fantastic job with the appearance of my ear such that one would never even notice any evidence of a surgical procedure. Eight months later: I had MOHS surgery of the ear at my dermatologist and Dr. O'Brien performed a complete repair the following day. Again, the appearance of my ear is such that one would never notice any evidence of a surgical procedure. I look great and am cancer free. Many thanks to Dr. O'Brien and his terrific staff. Highly recommended for any type of procedure. Absolutely first class!"- R.B. / Healthgrades / Apr 14, 2020

Ideal Candidates for Latisse
Latisse is an FDA-approved treatment that is safe and effective for many individuals who wish to enhance their cosmetic. Individuals with severe allergies, skin infections, or various eye conditions may not be good candidates for Latisse. It is also not recommended for women who are pregnant and/or nursing. During a private consultation, our aestheticians can discuss if Latisse is right for you.
Latisse is composed of a bimatoprost solution that aids in promoting eyelash growth. Just like hair, eyelashes cycle through an active and inactive growth phase, but with Latisse, eyelashes can stay in the active growth stage for longer periods of time to attain fuller lashes. This formula is applied once a day to the top eyelashes and is not approved for lower eyelash use. Thicker, longer lashes are achieved with routine use, so if an individual stops applying Latisse on a daily basis, then the eyelashes will gradually return to their previous thickness.
What to Expect from Latisse
Latisse is easy to use, and includes step-by-step instructions. With a clean face – no makeup or contact lenses – Latisse is applied with a single-use applicator on the upper eyelid. A clean applicator allows the eyelids to adequately absorb the medication. It is not necessary to treat the lower eyelid because blinking will cause the medication on the upper eyelid to spread, which ensures an even look. Regular daily use up to 16 weeks will render optimal results.
