About Lash Treatments
The eyes can be one of the most prominent and visually appealing parts of a patient's facial features. However, as you age, the eyelashes can become thinner, shorter, and lighter in color. Our board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Edward Lee, can recommend a number of solutions performed at his Houston, TX private practice to restore the appearance of your lashes. At Nuveau Plastic Surgery and Medical Aesthetics, we are proud to offer different options that can enhance, boost, and thicken your lash line — this includes Latisse, a prescription formula for stimulating lash growth, lash tinting, and lash extensions. During your consultation, we will listen to your needs and concerns and help you decide which method will give the best results to suit your unique condition and lifestyle. Contact our office today to learn more about our lash treatments.
The best candidates for receiving one of our lash treatments will have:
- Short, broken, thinning, or discolored lashes
- Tried other methods with little or no success
- A desire for a long-term solution
- Realistic expectations for their outcome

We offer the following lash treatments on-site at our practice. In general, we will use these techniques and processes for each treatment:
Latisse: This is a prescription medication that you will apply topically to the base of your upper lashes once a day. It is an FDA-approved treatment that is able to increase and promote an active growth cycle for lashes that are inadequate. During your appointment, we will instruct you on how to properly use the treatment to get the maximum results. In general, you will want to clean the area and remove any makeup before application; removal of contacts is also recommended if applicable. Latisse is not for use of the lower lashes but upper only. We can discuss any side effects or reactions during your consultation.
Lash Tinting: Before treatment, we will discuss your goals and desired outcome. We will then clean the area and apply the tinting solution, which will be customized based on your desired shade. This is a short, outpatient procedure that usually lasts only a few minutes. There is no downtime associated with this treatment.
Lash Extensions: During this treatment, our team member will carefully discuss your options such as desired length, material, shape, and the number of extensions. Afterward, we will carefully apply each lash individually using an adhesive substance that will go on top of your current lashes. This procedure should not be painful, though you will need to keep your eyes open for extended periods and be comfortable with our staff member working closely around your eyes. This procedure can take up to two hours depending on how many extensions are being applied. Afterward, it is important to avoid contact with water, lotions, makeup, or any other outside substances that may cause the adhesive to break down and the lashes to fall out.
What to Expect
For Latisse treatments, you can expect to see some noticeable improvement after four weeks of consistent use. However, it will usually take 16 weeks to see your full, dramatic results. It is important to continually apply the topical solution to maintain your lash growth. If you stop usage, your lashes will gradually revert back to their original appearance.
For lash tinting and extensions, you will see your results right away. Tinting generally lasts around 3 – 4 weeks, while extensions can last between 6 – 8 weeks depending on your choice of lashes. You may need filler appointments in between this time period to replace any lashes that have fallen out.
Regardless of your treatment choice, you should be able to enjoy beautiful, fuller, and thicker lashes that enhance your overall appearance.
