• Understanding Latisse Treatment

    woman eye with long eyelashes

    Do you often wish that you had thicker, fuller eyelashes? Not having full eyelashes is also known as eyelash hypotrichosis and may be caused by genetics, aging, pulling on the eyelashes, or a variety of medical conditions. It is not just a cosmetic issue, and it can be addressed by your dermatologist with the Latisse solution. Latisse can make your eyelashes grow longer, thicker, and darker, finally putting an end to eyelash hypotrichosis. Keep reading to learn more about Latisse treatment and to find out if it might be right for you.

    What It Is

    Latisse is a prescription treatment that you can only obtain from your doctor to increase the size and appearance of your eyelashes. When you go to your dermatologist to find out more about Latisse, be sure to mention if you have ever taken or are currently taking any medications for eye pressure problems. Latisse should only be applied to the upper eyelid and used continually for best results. If you stop using Latisse, your eyelashes will gradually go back to their previous appearance.

    What to Expect

    Like any good thing in life, great eyelashes take time, but they are worth the wait. Latisse starts working as soon as you first apply it, and you may start to see improvements in length in as little as four weeks. By the end of eight weeks of treatment, most users notice fuller and darker lashes. After 12 weeks pass, most users see enhanced eyelashes, and by 16 weeks, your lashes will be fuller and more dramatic. In clinical trials, 78% of participants showed significantly longer, fuller, and darker lashes by week 16 of treatment.

    How to Optimize Treatment

    To get the best results from your Latisse treatment, you must be as consistent as possible. Keep your Latisse in clear view with your other skincare products so that you don’t forget to apply it each night. Make it a part of your nightly routine, along with washing your face and brushing your teeth. Keep the bottle tip and applicator clean, and follow your doctor’s instructions at all times.

  • A Look at Dermal Fillers for Men

    While some people think of cosmetic treatments as solely for women, the truth is that dermal fillers can benefit both men and women. Watch this video to learn more about dermal fillers for men.

    Men and women have different bone structures which create different patterns in the ways they age. Since men have a larger bone structure and thicker skin, they are ideal candidates for certain types of dermal fillers, as more filler can be used. The wrinkles and creases on men’s faces may be deeper, making them suitable for restoration with dermal fillers.

    Swinyer – Woseth Dermatology is proud to offer dermal fillers such as Juvéderm XC to help our male and female patients restore their youthful features. Call our Salt Lake City office at (801) 266-8841 or visit our website to learn more about our dermatological and cosmetic services. 

  • What Is Juvéderm XC?


    Aging is a natural part of life, but sometimes the outward signs of aging appear a little sooner than you might like. If you are concerned about the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on your skin, it may be time to consult your dermatologist about dermal fillers such as Juvéderm XC. Fillers like Juvéderm XC are excellent alternatives for people who wish to improve their appearance but are not ready for cosmetic surgery. Keep reading to learn more about Juvéderm XC.

    What It Is

    Juvéderm XC is a smooth gel that fills the fine lines and wrinkles around your nose and mouth. These wrinkles and folds may be caused by stress, smoking, sun exposure, age, or genetic predisposition. In many cases, just one treatment with Juvéderm XC from your dermatologist is enough to see results and eliminate the wrinkles that can make you look older than you are—and older than you feel.

    What It’s Made Of

    Unlike some other dermal fillers, Juvéderm XC uses a substance that is naturally found in the body to restore your youthful appearance. Hyaluronic acid is found in young, healthy-looking skin, but its levels decrease as you get older. Without this hyaluronic acid, your facial skin loses structure and volume, which results in wrinkles and folds. Juvéderm XC’s special formulation creates smooth results and contains lidocaine to make your treatment more comfortable.

    Advantages of Juvéderm XC

    In addition to being a better match with your body’s natural composition, Juvéderm XC offers many benefits to those who choose it. Just one treatment with Juvéderm XC can produce results that last up to an entire year. Juvéderm XC is also the first FDA-approved hyaluronic acid dermal filler that has been proven safe and effective for persons of color. Talk to your dermatologist about your treatment goals, and together you will come up with a customized plan for the best results possible.

    With Juvéderm XC on your side, everyone will notice the improvement in your appearance, but no one will know your secret. Call Salt Lake City’s Swinyer – Woseth Dermatology at (801) 266-8841 to schedule an appointment and find out how we can help you look and feel younger.
