Latisse®

Latisse-orange-countyAs you age, the volume, length and color of your lashes may begin to diminish. Others are born with short or sparse eyelashes.

Fortunately, we now have Latisse™ – a breakthrough technology clinically proven to enhance your lashes in as little as 12 weeks. Latisse is available by prescription only.

Who Can Benefit From Latisse?

  • Latisse is an ideal treatment for men and women who are disappointed with the length, thickness or color of their lashes.
  • Individuals who have been diagnosed with certain eye conditions may not be ideal candidates for Latisse.
  • People taking antibiotics or heart medication, as well as those with significant medical conditions or allergies also may not be good candidates for Latisse.
  • During your consultation, we will be able to determine if Latisse is right for you based on factors such as your medical history and cosmetic goals.

Latisse In Orange County: What to Expect

  • Latisse is a prescription-only medication. Once you have received a prescription, you will be responsible for applying Latisse on a nightly basis at home.
  • Prior to each application, your face should be thoroughly cleansed and your contacts should be removed.
  • Using a sterile brush applicator, you will need to apply Latisse to the lash line of your upper eyelids. Application to the lower lids is not necessary or recommended.
  • Latisse applicators are disposable and should be discarded after each individual use.

What Happens After Latisse?

  • The final results of Latisse will appear gradually over the course of several weeks. Most people achieve optimal results after 16 weeks of regular application.
  • According to clinical studies, people who used Latisse as directed saw a 25 percent increase in the length of their lashes, a 106 percent increase in lash fullness, and an 18 percent increase in the darkness of their lashes.
  • Latisse does not provide permanent lash enhancement. Sustained regular use will be required to maintain results. If you stop using Latisse, your lashes will gradually return to their pre-treatment state over the course of several months.

Alternatives to Latisse

  • Latisse is the first prescription treatment that makes your eyelashes longer, thicker and darker. Currently there are no medical alternatives to Latisse.
  • Mascara, false lashes or eyelash extensions may temporarily improve the appearance of your lashes, but they will not directly impact the natural length, volume or color of your lashes.
