Grow Longer, Fuller, Darker Eyelashes with Latisse™
What is Latisse™ and what does it do?
Latisse (bimatoprost) a topical prescription product from Allergan (the makers of Botox and Juvederm), is the first and only scientifically proven product approved by the FDA to stimulate eyelashes to grow longer and thicker. Lumigan™ (also bimatoprost and identical to Latisse) is prescription eye drops for glaucoma which was discovered to also stimulate eyelash growth in patients using it. While using Latisse your lashes will continue to grow without shedding as they normally would. They therefore will continue to grow longer until they have reached the desired length you choose. Maintenance treatments of 2-3 times per week will then maintain this desired length. Latisse can also stimulate eyebrow growth in some patients. It is a prescription product and therefore only available through physicians.
Latisse is now available at The Dermatology & Laser Centre of Studio City without an appointment. A brief Consultation and prescription is required with your first purchase.
What to Expect
Enhanced eyelash growth is typically seen within 4-8 weeks but may take up to 3 months in certain patients. Once lashes have grown to their desired length reduce applications to 2-3 times per week. This is necessary to maintain your results. If application is discontinued completely eyelashes will begin to shed normally and return to their pretreatment appearance in 2-4 weeks.
When used as directed on the eyelids for eyelash growth Latisse has been proven safe with no serious adverse events reported. Side effects were typically limited to temporary redness of the eye or eyelids. When used in the eye daily for glaucoma treatment, other side effects have been reported such as darkening of the skin under the eyes or the irises. See package insert for more details.
Once your eyelashes have grown longer, consider having your lashes tinted for the ultimate in convenience. No more mascara!
Latisse is available in our office for purchase. No appointment is necessary. A brief consultation is required to receive a prescription and a nominal fee may be charged.
