An Update: Lashes and Tear Ducts

Latisse Update

So, after much deliberation, I have decided not to do the Latisse challenge.  The reason is because I’m still nursing and Latisse is not FDA approved to be used in pregnant or nursing mothers.  I knew that beforehand and I’ve never prescribed it to a patient who is pregnant or nursing, but my overzealousness to have nice lashes almost got the better of me.  I figured that the amount of Latisse that is systemically absorbed is quite small.  But, when I sat down and really considered it, I realized it just wasn’t worth the risk.  Though I’m not a patient person, I would rather wait 6 months and know for sure that I am not harming my baby.  The only time I used it was when I posted the video.  So, instead I’ve put one of my staff on Latisse and I’ll be posting pics of her every 2 weeksThis is obviously not a picture of my employee’s lashes, but my son, Nikhil has the best lashes, so I just decided to post a pic of him until I get the staff pics uploaded.
 

Tear Duct Update

On a happy note, Taj’s nasolacrimal duct obstruction has completely resolved.  It’s interesting, it appeared to be worsening one day and then all of a sudden there was no discharge, no tearing.  So, parents out there – continue the massage, it really does work.  I did the Crigler massage much more consistently than the antibiotic ointment or warm compresses.

No more tearing or discharge!
