The Best Eyelash Enhancers: Recommendations from Dr. Parks

I can’t think of a single woman out there who isn’t interested in having long, thick, and full eyelashes. Patients frequently come to me searching for a miracle product to help with this. Often, they used to have longer eyelashes when they were younger, but notice that their lashes have started to fall out or not grow as long. Other times women have bad experiences with their eyelash extensions and begin losing their lashes from this.

Whatever the cause of the problem, there are several excellent products out there that will help your eyelashes grow longer and thicker. One caveat to all of these products is that once you start using them, you need to continue with them in order to continue seeing results. I would recommend any of these eyelash serums to help you grow beautiful, long, thick lashes, however, once you stop using any of these, your lashes will go back to how they looked before, so this product will be a long-term commitment. Here are my top eyelash enhancer recommendations:

Latisse (3 mL for $140):

When you think of eyelash enhancers, Latisse by Allergan is likely the first thing that comes to mind, as it was the first product of its kind. Latisse is a prescription product that was originally made for patients with Glaucoma. Once patients began using this, they noticed their eyelashes starting to grow and now this product is marketed for that purpose.

The downside to Latisse is that there is a possibility of some side effects, such as changing eye color, especially for those with light-colored eyes. Though this is not at all typical, this is why this product requires a prescription and a consultation with your physician before purchasing. Another disadvantage to this is that you’ll have to always restock at your doctor’s office, rather than being able to order the product conveniently online.

RapidLash Eyelash Enhancing Serum (3 mL for $49.95):

This product uses the RapidLash patented HEXATEIN® 1 COMPLEX, consisting of six highly effective ingredients, which are all specifically designed to condition, moisturize and fortify to enhance overall appearance of more beautiful lashes and brows. This product has been clinically proven and ophthalmologist and dermatologist tested to improve the appearance of the lashes. It is also safe for contact lens wearers. This product can be used to help grow both the eyelashes and the eyebrows.

y.L. Skin Lash Advance Eyelash Conditioner (7.5 mL for $89):

In just four weeks, this clinically proven blend of proteins, vitamins and nutrients will allow your eyelashes to grow up to 82% thicker, longer, fuller and darker. 100% of the panelists tested showed a significant increase in the areas mentioned above, with the average increase of 54.81%…in four weeks. This is a brand-new product on the market that we’re very excited about and I love the fact that this comes in a larger size than any of the other products out there. Best of all though, this clinically proven serum is available without a prescription and is safe with no side effects.

Alphaeon Beauty Eyelash Serum (3.5 mL for $110):

Like the other products mentioned above, the Alphaeon Beauty Eyelash Serum hydrates and conditions lashes, resulting in the appearance of longer, fuller eyelashes. This product has been one of our most popular and all of our customers and patients rave about it. Unfortunately, however, the brand has announced that they will be discontinuing this product in the very near future. Any of the above-mentioned products will be a great alternative to this for those who love it and have come to rely on it to grow their lashes.

Top Sunscreens Recommended by Eastside Dermatology

top sunscreen recommendations
With so many different sunscreen products on the market, it can be hard to find the one that works best for your skin. There are so many variables that can be a dealmaker or breaker when you are shopping for sunscreen.

Here’s a list of the top sunscreens recommended by our physicians at Eastside Dermatology.


One of the first things you will notice about Solbar sunscreen is its consistency. This sunscreen is alcohol gel-based which makes it easy to apply and won’t leave a residue or odor on your skin. Solbar can be easily used with makeup and will not leave you feeling greasy following application.

Price Range: $10-$12


Anthelios’ sunscreens are on the higher end when it comes to price, but it is definitely worth the investment for patients who are extremely sensitive to the sun. The consistency of Anthelios sunscreens will remind you of traditional sunscreen, but it is easy to apply to your skin and is not visible once it is applied. When it comes to this brand, a little bit of sunscreen goes a long way. It’s lightweight and contains antioxidants to help maintain your skin’s health.

Price Range: $30-$40


Neutrogena is a well-known skincare brand and their sunscreen products are very effective for patients of all ages. There’s a large variety of sunscreens that are oil-free and water resistant. Neutrogena has products for all of our patients including a sunscreen with SPF 100+ for the most sensitive skin! These sunscreens are available as cream and spray.

Price Range: $10-$15


Clinique’s sunscreens are a great option for patients who are looking for a product that both blocks the sun and moisturizes the skin. These sunscreens make a difference for patients because it works fast after applying it to the skin. Clinique sunscreens are gentle on the skin and works great for patients of all ages.

Price Range: $20-$30


Bullfrog’s sunscreens are geared towards patients who are very active outdoors. The products include sunscreens with insect repellant, a heavy duty waterproof formula and a kid-friendly formula. Bullfrog offers sunscreen as a cream, a gel, a spray and lip balm. Unlike a many sunscreen brands, Bullfrog’s products are affordable and work well for patients.

Price Range: $2-$10

Hopefully this list will help you find which sunscreen works the best for your skin and make your life easier when it comes to being exposed to sunlight!

NEW: XTRAC Laser Services

XTRAC is the only FDA-cleared, clinically proven excimer laser that gets skin clear of psoriasis—and it works fast, with many patients seeing significant improvement and long-lasting remissions. Because XTRAC delivers a highly targeted, therapeutic beam of UVB light only to areas of the skin affected by psoriasis, healthy skin surrounding the lesions stays that way.

XTRAC clears the symptoms, prolongs the remission and returns skin to a clinically healthy state in record time. All of which means XTRAC delivers consistently predictable results so patients experience more good days of living than bad.

Quick Facts

  • Effective treatment—symptoms reduced generally in 10-12 treatment sessions
  • Long-lasting relief—typically several months free of symptoms”
  • Simple, painless treatment—sessions are very short
  • Relief without messy creams and daily skin care regimen
  • Covered by most major insurance companies, available by Rx


*Results may vary, talk to your doctor about the right treatment protocol for you.

Side Effects/Risks: XTRAC has none of the drawbacks often associated with other psoriasis treatments-such as premature aging of healthy skin, skin thinning, resistance to medication, or potential negative systemic side effects. Some patients, however, experience a reaction similar to sunburn or blistering at the site of the treated area and in some cases, an increase in pigmentation may occur.
