Skin Care FAQs

While there is no shortage of over-the-counter skin products that promise to keep your skin soft, smooth and healthy, the  medical grade products contain more active ingredients than are available in non-medical grade skincare products.  The medical-grade skincare products offered at Facial Cosmetic Surgery Associate have been developed and tested by multiple experts in the skincare industry. We currently offer products from Defenage Pro, Skin Medica, Obagi® and Elta MD.
During your visit, our medical team will assess your individual skin type and condition, recommending products that will provide the most benefit for your skin. Unlike conventional store products, our professional skin care products maintain the health and beauty of your skin without any harsh irritants or inactive ingredients.

Defenage Anti-Aging - Clinical Power Trio

Easy three step process:


Longer, Fuller & Darker Eyelashes

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved Latisse (bimatoprost ophthalmic solution) 0.03% as a novel treatment for hypotrichosis of the eyelashes. Eyelash hypotrichosis is another name for having inadequate or not enough eyelashes. Latisse is a once-daily prescribed treatment applied to the base of the upper eyelashes with a sterile, single-use-per-eye disposable applicator.

Latisse users can expect to experience longer, fuller and darker eyelashes in as little as eight weeks, with full results in 16 weeks.

The most common side effects after using Latisse solution are an itching sensation in the eyes and/or eye redness. This was reported in approximately

4% of patients. Latisse solution may cause other less common side effects which typically occur on the skin close to where Latisse is applied, or in the eyes. These include skin darkening, eye irritation, dryness of the eyes, and redness of the eyelids.

Latisse should not be used by individuals who have Glaucoma (increased interocular eye pressure) or are taking eye drops for eye pressure problems.
