Latisse Sherman Oaks

LATISSE® is an FDA-approved treatment to grow eyelashes for people with inadequate or not enough lashes.

Individual results may vary. The lashes displayed are unretouched, without mascara. If you stop using LATISSE®, your eyelashes are expected to return to their previous appearance over several weeks to months. Results may vary from eye to eye. There may be differences in eyelash length, thickness, fullness, pigmentation (darkness), number of eyelash hairs or the direction of eyelashes. If you experience any of these variations in your lashes, they will usually go away once you stop using LATISSE®.

Latisse Application

What is Latisse?

Are you constantly applying layers upon layers of mascara or false eyelashes to get your lashes looking fuller? Unfortunately, doing both of these things will likely put further strain on your eyelashes and likely damage them. Having thin, light, and sparse eyelashes can make your eyes look less feminine, aged, and even tired or dull. Latisse is a topical treatment prescribed to treat inadequate eyelashes, also known as hypotrichosis. Using Latisse daily encourages new eyelash growth that is thicker in diameter, longer in length, darker in color, and more luxurious.

Latisse Longevity

Latisse Application

Latisse takes around two months to see results and three to four months until results are fully evident with consistent daily application. If you discontinue using Latisse, eyelashes will return to their original appearance prior to starting the product. Patience is required when using Latisse, as results do not occur overnight.

Application of the product takes 30 seconds and can be done at home with minimal skill. The product is only meant to be applied to the upper eyelid, where the lid meets the lashes with a sterile application tool that comes with the medication. While sleeping, there’s enough contact to stimulate eyelash growth in the lower lids. 

Is Latisse Painful?

There is no pain associated with Latisse treatment if used as directed. However, in some rare cases of allergy, itchiness, redness, and irritation of the eyes can occur. If this or more severe reactions such as conjunctivitis occur, contact your provider and we can advise you on treatment and whether or not to stop using Latisse.

How Latisse Works

Latisse Vial Packaging

Before & Preparation

It’s a good idea to apply Latisse on clean, makeup free eyes.  Make sure to remove contact lenses before applying the product if you wear them. Contact lenses can be placed back in fifteen minutes after Latisse is used.

How to Apply Latisse

Remember to clean the eye area and remove any makeup or contact lenses. First, remove the cap from the vial. Put one drop of Latisse on the applicator brush closest to the tip. Gently brush the applicator onto where your upper eyelid meets your lashes, starting from the inner area of your lash line and ending on the outer part of your upper eye.  It is not necessary to apply to the lower lids.  Finally, dispose of the applicator and repeat the process with a new sterile applicator on the other eye. It is a good idea not to use the same applicator on both eyes to reduce any possible cross-contamination between eyes. Latisse should only be applied once in the evenings to allow the medication time to be absorbed overnight. The gentle contact of the upper and lower lids will allow product to also stimulate lash growth on the lower lid area.

How To Apply Latisse
Latisse Aftercare

Aftercare

Pat dry any product dripping away from the upper eyelid.  Make sure to wait fifteen minutes before applying other eye products or inserting your contact lenses.  Sleep after application is a good idea to allow dispersion of the product onto the lower lids.

Downtime

There is no downtime when using Latisse. However, you should wait fifteen minutes before applying any other ocular medications, drops, or contact lenses.

Latisse Risks

Latisse Risks

Potential risks and side effects associated with Latisse are rare and mostly mild. Possible side effects could include itchy/red eyes, dry eyes, darkened eyelids, darkened pigmentation in the eye’s iris or area of treatment, and hair growth around the eyes if the medication isn’t patted dry around the intended upper eyelid application area.  In fact, some use remaining liquid on the brush on their brows or scalp hairline to enhance brow hair growth. Do not use if pregnant or breastfeeding.

Who is a good candidate for Latisse?

Any individual who suffers from sparse, light, or inadequate eyelashes can get a prescription for Latisse. Individuals who have lost their eyelashes due to chemotherapy have had great success with the regrowth of lost eyelashes with Latisse. However, if an individual suffers from alopecia, it is unlikely that treatment with Latisse will be successful. Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding should not use Latisse.

Latisse Reviews

This Stuff Works Fast!

I’m not very good at being consistent with daily tasks and I didn’t use the Latisse everyday but I noticed results within just the first week or two. I probably used the Latisse once every other day and once I got the results I wanted (my center lashes where starting to get too long), I started using it only once a week which maintained my results. I actually did Latisse only on one eye and did AplhaLash on the other eye so that I could compare results. In the end, I think Latisse made my eyelashes a little longer and AlphaLash made them a little thicker. I’m very happy with both products.

Latisse FAQs

Do I need a prescription for Latisse?

Yes, Latisse is a prescription strength product.  After meeting with one of our skilled providers at Cosmetic Injectables Center Sherman Oaks, CA and upon confirmation that you are an appropriate candidate, you can purchase Latisse from our office.

What happens when you stop using Latisse?

When you stop using Latisse, your lashes slowly return to their original length and density.

Can Latisse be used on eyebrows?

Yes, Latisse can be used on eyebrows. Typically when people use it on their eyelashes, they use the remainder of what is left on the wet brush applicator to help eyebrow or scalp hair growth.  While it’s not FDA approved for this area, most of our patients express that they are happy with the results when used in brows and hairline.

Who should not use Latisse?

Anyone allergic to the ingredients in the product should not use Latisse.  Other contraindications of Latise include macular swelling or edema, degeneration of the eye, inflammation of the iris or uvea, or presence of artificial eye lens.

Does Latisse really work?

Yes, Latisse really works to thicken the lashes. By reducing the lashes’ sleep cycle, the number of lashes that are grown at one time increases. Latisse works to increase the length of lashes, darken the color of the lashes, and improve the thickness of the lashes.

Is Revitalash as good as Latisse?

No. Latisse’s active ingredient is bimatoprost, a prostaglandin FDA approved for efficacy and safety for growth of eyelashes.  Revitalash uses a combination of over the counter ingredients such as peptides that are presumed to condition the lashes, but have not been FDA tested to be efficacious.

How long does it take to see results?

Results will begin to occur after two months of continued Latisse use. Full results will be evident in three to four months.

Will my insurance cover Latisse?

No, insurance does not cover Latisse because it is considered a cosmetic procedure.

How much does Latisse cost per month?

The cost of Latisse medication is roughly 48-50$ a month. Contact one of our providers at Cosmetic Injectables Center in Sherman Oaks to learn more about cost and pricing information.

How much does a 5 mL bottle of Latisse cost?

For a 5 mL bottle of Latisse (approximately 112 doses), the cost is about $180.

How is Latisse applied?

First, clean the eye area and remove makeup and contact lenses to apply Latisse. Next, remove the sterile applicator from the tray and hold the applicator horizontally. Put one drop of Latisse on the applicator area closest to the tip but not directly on the tip. Starting from the inner area of your lash line and ending on the outer part of your eye, apply the product horizontally across the eyelid where the lash meets the lid. Then make sure to blot dry any excess medication with a tissue or cotton pad. Finally, dispose of the applicator and repeat the process with a new sterile applicator on the other eye. It is a good idea not to use the same applicator on both eyes to reduce any possible cross-contamination between eyes. Latisse should be applied in the evenings before sleep to allow contact of upper and lower lids so that lower lids can also be enhanced and to allow the medication time to be absorbed overnight.

Does Latisse discolor the eyes?

When the active ingredient of Latisse was initially used as a glaucoma medication, it was administered directly into the eyes. With this type of intra-ocular treatment, pigmentation of the iris did occur. However, now in its current use to treat sparse eyelashes, the medication is placed strictly on the upper eyelid (not into the eyes). There have been no published reports that pigmentation of the iris occurs with the treatment of eyelashes.
