What Is LATISSE®?
LATISSE® is a topical treatment designed to stimulate the growth of eyelashes. The LATISSE® solution is approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to treat patients who have hypotrichosis in the upper eyelids, which is a condition characterized by an inadequate growth of hair. When hypotrichosis affects these regions, individuals may have little or no upper eyelashes. LATISSE® is formulated with ingredients that can actually produce new eyelash growth for fuller, longer lashes. This treatment can also benefit patients who may not suffer from hypotrichosis but who simply would like to significantly enhance the look of their eyelashes and reduce dependence on mascara or other products to bring out their eyes.
LATISSE® is only approved for the treatment of the upper eyelashes, and is only available by prescription. Individuals with some types of eye conditions may not be the best candidates for this treatment.
Daniel C. Mills, MD, and his team here at Laguna Beach Rejuvenation & Wellness have seen very successful results with LATISSE®. We can meet with you for a consultation to talk about your goals and determine whether LATISSE® is right for your needs.
How to Use LATISSE®
Once you receive your prescription for LATISSE®, the solution can be applied to the upper eyelash line at home once each day. Daily application will continue for approximately four to 16 weeks. When LATISSE® has begun to yield the desired effects, the solution can be applied less frequently; however, the eyelashes will likely return to their pre-treatment appearance if LATISSE® applications are stopped indefinitely.
Some patients who use LATISSE® may be affected by side effects such as redness, irritation, itching, or a darkened pigment in the skin or even in the iris of the eye. We will provide you with detailed instructions on how to use LATISSE® and address any concerns you may have.
How Long Does it Take LATISSE® to Work?
The results of LATISSE® often begin to become apparent about four weeks after the start of treatment, and the best outcomes are typically seen by the 16th week. With this in mind, the total length of time for LATISSE® to work is often somewhat different for each individual, so it may take more or less time to achieve optimal results.
How Much Does LATISSE® Cost?
The cost of LATISSE® typically starts at approximately $120-$160 at our practice. A member of our team will provide you with a total cost estimate during your initial consultation and talk with you about the variety of convenient payment methods and financing options accepted here at Laguna Beach Rejuvenation & Wellness.
