Claris eye care and surgery can help you glance into a glorious future with the latest in eyelash recovery: LATISSE® solution will help you grow longer, thicker, and darker lashes with remarkable results that will capture anyone’s attention.

As always, Claris uses only the highest quality and most up-to-date technology. Claris is happy to be able to provide our clients with the most beneficial modern treatment for the condition known as “hypotrichosis.” Regardless of whether or not you have this condition, it is a normal part of aging for eyelashes to become sparse, fine, short and brittle and sometimes lacking in pigmentation.

LATISSE® is different from other products used to grow lashes as only LATISSE® has been approved by the FDA as a prescription treatment for hypotrichosis.


At Claris we offer a full line of medical grade SkinMedica® products, which are scientifically formulated and clinically tested to rejuvenate skin and help rekindle your skin’s youthful appearance. After consistently using a daily regimen that includes the full range of SkinMedica® products you’ll begin to see noticeable results.

Facial sagging, fine lines and wrinkles appear as we age when collagen production diminishes. To counter the damaging effects like decreased elasticity and skin thinning, SkinMedica® chooses scientifically proven ingredients such as growth factors and other compounds to formulate their advanced skin care products. With antioxidants and retinoids the products go to work the moment you apply them to enhance the natural appearance of your skin and help to prevent free radical damage.

“Fantastic experience. Everyone was professional, warm, and competent. Dr. Carlson took time to explain the procedure (Botox for eye twitch), and performed it perfectly. I’ve been to other ophthalmologists for this condition, and they didn’t have the knowledge or expertise that Dr. Carlson clearly has in administering small amounts of Botox. I don’t intend on seeing anyone other than Dr. Carlson for my complete eye care needs.” -Kathryn P., Saint Paul, MN

“I’ve been self-conscious about the wrinkles on my forehead for quite awhile now. The timing was right so I gave it a try. I was nervous but everything worked out even better than I expected. The results are significant! I would do it again. Thanks!”
