The first and only product approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to stimulate the growth of eyelashes is now available at our practice. LATISSE® can help those who experience hypotrichosis (inadequate eyelash growth) grow thicker, longer lashes that can accentuate the appearance of the eyes without complete reliance on mascara and eyelash curlers. LATISSE® has been developed by Allergan®, and works as a topical prescription product that you can apply at home. The treatment is typically applied daily for about 4 to 8 weeks, and once you have achieved the desired thickness and length to your eyelashes, treatments can be applied less frequently. Although LATISSE® has been scientifically proven to be effective, some patients may experience side effects, including darkening of the skin, itchiness, inflammation, and redness. Individuals should consult with our plastic surgeons regarding the risks and benefits of LATISSE® before using it.
