SKIN CARE BY SHAHIN FAZILAT, MD CAN MAKE IT GLOW LIKE A NEW YOU

Overview

Skin Care is critically important because your skin is your body’s single largest organ, so it deserves to be treated with optimal care and respect.

After your skin is exposed to the elements of sun, wind and dirt, Dr. Fazilat can use the OBAGI® System of Skin Health Restoration to make your skin soft again.

OBAGI® offers several Skin Care systems that are unique to your skin’s needs. OBAGI® works to correct skin blemishes, surface discoloration, and damage by promoting the emergence of new, healthy cells with an overall increase in circulation and hydration. OBAGI® is also a well-known Skin Care treatment for patients with acne. Dr. Fazilat and his staff are trained OBAGI® representatives and will help you choose the system of skin care that is best for you.

In addition, Dr. Fazilat recommends Latisse™ as a prescription, once-daily treatment for inadequate or not enough eyelashes (hypotrichosis). Latisse™ grows eyelashes, making them longer, thicker, and darker. LATISSE™ is believed to affect the growth (anagen) phase of the eyelash hair cycle in two ways: first, it increases the length of this phase; and second, it increases the number of hairs in this growth phase. Latisse™ is a liquid that you apply to your eyelashes by a small one-use brush. It’s safe for those who wear contacts or use mascara. Treatments last with continued use and you can start seeing results within 1 to 2 months.
