Ditch Your Lash Extensions and Try Latisse

Lash Extensions | Gary J. Price M.D.Big lashes are all the rage right now in the beauty industry, and we are no stranger to seeing all the new trends. But what if we told you that you could get similar looking results naturally with Latisse? Latisse is a prescription strength treatment that helps to strenthen, add volume, and lenghten your eyelashes over a few months. So, why should you trust us and ditch your extensions for this Latisse?

It looks more natural

Your eyelashes are going to look a lot more natural with Latisse because, well, they are natural. Rather than looking like some spiders took over your lashline, Latisse will give you that naturally defined look that you’ve been wanting.

You won’t have to wear liner or mascara

If you love your lash extensions because you can wake up every morning without putting on mascara or eyeliner, then you will love Latisse. After several months of using Latisse, you will notice that your lashes are so thick and full that it looks like you are wearing makeup.

You won’t have to get them filled

How often do you have to get your lashes filled? With Latisse, you don’t have to worry about scheduling appointments and taking time out of your day to get your lashes done. Instead, all you have to do is apply it to your lashline once a day, and you are good to go.

It strengthens lashes

One of the things that a lot of patients complain about when it comes to lash extensions is that they weaken their natural lashes. Lash extensions (especially the strips), can weigh your lashes down and make them too heavy, but Latisse actually strengthens your lashes so that they are stronger.

It’s more affordable

Although the cost of Latisse is a little bit expensive at first, it will save you money in the long run. Think of all of the money that you spend every few weeks having to get your lashes filled and then think about what you can do with that money now that you’re using Latisse!

To get your prescription for Latisse, come into our Guilford office today and call us at (203) 453-6635.

Keep Your Lashes As Healthy As Possible While Using Latisse

LATISSE Eyelash Enhancement | New Haven CTLatisse is a prescription topical medication used to help patients grow longer, fuller eyelashes. As one of the products that Dr. Gary J. Price encourages patients who desire eyes that pop and stand out from the crowd, Latisse is a non-surgical solution that will deliver you with great results. However, it’s important that you make sure that you are doing everything possible to keep your eyes and lashes healthy while using latisse. Read on to learn more.

Remove Makeup (Including Eye Makeup)
Before you start applying Latisse, make sure that you are applying it to a clean face and clean eyes. If you are applying it at night, use makeup remover in order to fully get off any mascara or eyeliner from the day. If you are applying it in the morning, wash your face with a little bit of face wash to remove any dirt or oil that may have built up on your face while you were sleeping. By applying Latisse to a clean face, it will adhere better and give you results that last.

Don’t Contaminate It
You may not realize it, but it’s really simple for your Latisse applicator and brush to become instantly contaminated. Contamination of these products could result in you developing an eye infection and from the Latisse working as effectively as possible. In order to make sure they don’t get contaminated, don’t touch the applicator to anything— including your fingers. Additionally, don’t set the applicator down on the countertop in between treatments because it could build harmful bacteria.

Use Only the Given Applicator(s)
You may think that if you lose or misplace your Latisse applicator that you can simply use a clean Z-tip in order to apply it. However, the Latisse applicators are designed to target every eyelash and deliver you with the best results possible, whereas a Q-tip will just get all over the place.

If you are planning on using Latisse or if you have been using Latisse for a while and aren’t familiar with the above information, make sure that you follow the tips above. To learn more about Latisse or to schedule an appointment to learn more, contact Dr. Gary J. Price’s office today!

You Will Love Latisse™ Lashes

LATISSE Eyelash Enhancement dr. gary price guilford ctTimes have changed. A lot. Along with time, what you use to beautify your eyes and face has also changed. Remember back “in the day” – or maybe just yesterday – whey you wanted long, lush lashes for a special occasion or photo shoot and you tried those furry fake lashes with their miniature tubes of glue? And, if you were lucky enough to actually get them to stick, later found one of them had plopped onto your cheek? Not good.

Dr. Price offers the perfect solution to add length, thickness, strength and fullness to your upper lashes – noticeably transforming your face and eyes and intensifying your expression with naturally beautiful, plentiful eyelashes. It’s called Latisse™.

You probably don’t know this, but your lashes have a short growth phase of about 30 to 45 days, with a life span of three to four months before they drop out and a new lash cycle commences. Here’s how Latisse™ can help:

  • Latisse™ is the first and only FDA-approved treatment for lashes.
  • Using Latisse™ will strengthen your lashes by preventing lash loss and breakage, and will protect your lashes from the effects of the environment. Your lashes will become thicker, darker and fuller.
  • Latisse™ is a prescription for a type of hypotrichosis (permanent loss or reduction of lashes) and is designed to help your natural eyelashes grow longer, fuller and darker.
  • Latisse™ also helps prevent breakage and increases flexibility.
  • The results of Latisse™ lash treatment are gradual.
  • In clinical trials, the majority of Latisse™ patients saw significant improvement after only two months. And after four months, 78% of patients noted improvement.
  • The Latisse™ serum is applied sparingly, like eyeliner, on the upper eyelids at the base of the lashes once a day, at bedtime. A tiny amount should be used, slightly touching the root area. It should not be applied to the lower lid area.
  • Remember to avoid getting Latisse™ in your eyes, and be sure to tell us if you have a history of eye pressure problems, such as glaucoma.

No more fake lashes and tiny tubes of glue! Call, today, to schedule a Latisse™  consultation appointment: (203) 453-6635.

We are beginning to plan for reopening of the office! We have begun to plan for a tentative reopening date of May 18th! We will be scheduling appointments beginning today, 4/27/2020, for in-office visits for that date and onward. Just leave a message for Kathleen at the office number, (203) 453-6635, and she will return your call to schedule!


Telemedicine available…
For several weeks now, we have been using a “virtual office visit “alternative which will remain available. This enables anyone with a cell phone to share a video of themselves as needed with Dr. Price and allows him to perform a consultation without you ever leaving home! These consultations are scheduled just like office visits and can be made simply by leaving a message on the office system for Kathleen…. (no new apps or changes to your phone needed!)


While you were gone…
Dr. Price has been quite busy as president of the Physicians Foundation as that organization tries to help doctors cope with the crisis. In addition, he is participating in daily remote teaching conferences organized by the Yale Plastic Surgery program. These conferences originate at Yale and other academic centers around the country and are viewed by surgeons around the world. Dr. Price is a member of the Northeast seven-state task force developing guidelines for the reopening of Plastic Surgical Ambulatory Surgery Centers as the stay at home orders and ban on elective surgery are lifted. We are hoping that elective surgery might resume as early as late May. This date is not certain yet, but we will keep you advised here.


Please stay safe and well! We are looking forward to seeing you as it becomes safe enough for you to see us!



We have been asked to curtail any elective, non-urgent procedures or appointments for the following reasons.

1. To protect our patients.

2. To protect our staff.

3. To protect our community.

4. To avoid using precious supplies that might be needed to save the lives of others.

5. It’s the law!!!


Our entire staff is thinking of you during this difficult time. We appreciate your understanding and patience. We will resume in-person visits when reasonable and safe.


Stay tuned here for news and updates!!
