Latisse® Eyelash Treatment, Order Now

Latisse® (also bimatoprost and identical to Latisse®) is a prescription eye drop for glaucoma which was discovered to also stimulate eyelash growth in patients using it. Prior to its FDA approval as Latisse, Dr. Klein treated over 1500 patients with Latisse® for eyelash growth, as an off-label use. We found that it stimulated eyelash growth in 100% of our patients that used it as directed. Probably no one else in the U.S. has had this much experience in their practice with using bimatoprost for stimulating eyelash growth. This experience led Dr. Klein to be chosen as an Allergan Consultant for Latisse®.

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.

Instructions

Although the instructions included with Latisse® differ, our experience shows better results when applied as follows: Apply in the morning, to clean, dry eyelids. To apply, put 1-2 drops into the cap of the bottle and dip an eyeliner brush into it. Brush should be wet but not drippy. Apply with brush along the base of the upper lashes, as you would eyeliner, once daily. Although Latisse® instructions say not to apply to lower eyelids, lower lashes and eyebrows may also be treated. Try not to get the solution into your eyes or on the skin under your eyes. A little bit of solution occasionally in or on these areas is unlikely to cause side effects. If using a reusable brush, rinse well with water after each use and keep in a clean baggie. Makeup may be applied immediately afterwards. We recommend using the special eyeliner brush available in our office. This is a reusable brush that Dr. Klein has chosen among hundreds of brushes as the perfect size and shape to apply Latisse®. It is complimentary with every Latisse® purchase from us. Dr. Klein prefers this finer brush to the ones included with Latisse®.

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.

Latisse®: What is it and What does it do?

Latisse® (bimatoprost) a topical prescription product from Allergan (the makers of Botox® and Juvederm®), is approved by the FDA to stimulate eyelashes to grow longer and thicker. It is only available through physicians.

Prior to its FDA approval as Latisse®, Dr. Klein had treated over 1500 patients with Latisse® for eyelash growth. Probably no one else in the U.S. has had this much experience in their practice with using Latisse® for stimulating eyelash growth. This experience led Dr. Klein to be chosen as an Allergan Consultant for Latisse®.

What is Latisse®?

"Latisse®" (also bimatoprost) is identical chemically to "Latisse®". It has been available for many years as a prescription eye drop to treat glaucoma. It was discovered to also stimulate eyelash growth in patients using it. We have been prescribing Lumigan for eyelash growth to our patients since 2006 and have found that Latisse® stimulated eyelash growth in 100% of our patients that used 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, but not all patients.

Instructions

For best results we instruct patients to apply Latisse® in the morning, to clean, dry eyelids. To apply, put 1-2 drops into the cap of the bottle and dip an eyeliner brush into it. Apply with an eyeliner brush along the base of the upper lashes, as you would eyeliner, once daily. Lower lashes and eyebrows may also be treated. Rinse brush after each use and keep in clean baggie or replace cap over brush. Makeup may be applied immediately afterwards.

What to Expect

Enhanced eyelash growth is typically seen within the 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.

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.
