Cost of Latisse®
How does Latisse® work?
Latisse® is a product used to lengthen and thicken eyelashes. It works by causing your body to hold onto each individual eyelash follicle for a longer period of time, so you not only have a larger number of eyelashes, but each of them grows longer as well. Prior to purchasing Latisse®, you must have a prescription and a physician must talk to you about its use and possible side effects. If you are interested in trying Latisse®, please schedule a consultation or give our office a call.
Who is a good candidate for Latisse®?
Anybody who is interested in having longer, fuller lashes is a good candidate to try Latisse®. Please see Allergan's website for before/after photos. Latisse must be used for up to 3-4 months before maximal results are visible. No results are guaranteed, but most patients do notice a positive difference in their lashes after at least 2 months of use. Once the maximal effect is reached, Latisse® does not need to be used every day. Once Latisse® is discontinued, your lashes will revert to their pre-treatment density and length.
Is Latisse® safe?
Yes, Latisse® is FDA approved. It is similar medication used to treat glaucoma, so if you have any eye issues, please check with your physician prior to starting Latisse®. Latisse® can cause local irritation of the eyelid when you first begin using it, but that does improve over time. you should discontinue it if this irritation does not go away or gets more severe. Patients with light colored eyes should take care not to apply an excess amount or get any of the product in the eye itself, as it can cause permanent discoloration of the iris if used for a prolonged period of time.
