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.

"Dr. Lee is very personable! He is always very thoughtful and kind. If you are looking to get a procedure done, he will be able to kindly guide you through the process. Very seldom do you meet a doctor who is as considerate and relational as Dr. Lee!"- J.B. / Facebook / Mar 12, 2017
"I just happen to run across Dr. Lee on the internet searching for a Dr. to do a breast augmentation and possible tummy tuck. Had never even considered having this before and was very nervous. Went to one other consultation with another Dr. in the Houston area and found out he was actually only a dermatologist and wasn’t board certified in plastic surgery. I decided to get another quote and I am so glad that I did. Even though I lost $500 dollars that I had put down with t...he first Dr.. i let Dr. Lee know what it was that I was looking for and he let me know right away what I needed. He could have charged me more and even could have said that I needed more than what I did but he did not. He did not have to do a lift on me for my breast and he did not have to do lipo in me either and in both cases he could have told me I needed this and I would not have known the difference - but he didn’t. I was impressed with the fact that he has been doing this for only 7 years would be up to date on the procedures and possible new ways of doing these procedures rather than a dr that had been doing this for 20 plus years. Dr. Lee was worried due to the fact that I was a smoker. He almost seemed as if he may not even be interested in doing my surgery due to this fact. That was even impressive. He could have cared less and just seen dollar signs but he didn’t. I let him know I was super serious about this and would stop immediately if he would get me right in to do surgery so that I wouldn’t change my mind like I had in the past due to other obligations. He told me I would have to wait 6 weeks and the. He could do the surgery if I stopped smoking then. I promised. He kept his part of the bargain and so did I. I am proud to say that I have now had surgery almost 2 weeks ago and still haven’t smoked. Won’t go back. Thanks to Dr. Lee and Mrs. Eva I won’t go back to smoking. My surgery went flawlessly and the results are amazing. The Dr. knew exactly what I needed and did a perfect job. He eased all of my fears and it went way better than what I expected. Would recommend Dr. Lee to anyone wanting to enhance their looks. They offer a lot of different services and I would let them do any of them on me if I needed. Now Mrs Eva if the Drs right hand in my opinion. She was amazing and could have ignored me because god knows I ask her every question under the sun regarding my procedures and she handled me with nothing but respect. When she didn’t have too. I love her to pieces and she makes you feel so comfortable during the entire process."- M.S. / Facebook / Mar 22, 2020
"10 days post “mommy makeover” and have to write a review because of how smooth the process was and how wonderful Dr. Lee is. Great bedside manner and superb skill level. You can tell he takes pride in his work and strives to get his patients the best possible outcome. Recovery process has been smooth thankfully. I was back to work 1 week post surgery. Also, Dr. Lee really listens to your concerns and works with you as a team. He even called me over Christmas to review a post op concern I had emailed him about. Eva in the office is also wonderful. Highest recommendations!"- D. / Google / Dec 28, 2019

Lash Treatments Procedure Techniques
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 with Lash Treatments
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.
