Latisse is a new FDA approved treatment for absent or sparse eyelashes. It actually causes your eyelashes to grow longer and more full. It is a liquid that you paint over your upper eyelid each night after you wash your face. It takes about 12 to 16 weeks to see full effects. In studies, 100% of people who used Latisse nightly for 16 or more weeks saw results.
Latisse can be obtained from a physician (usually a plastic surgeon or dermatologist) after a standard examination. Dr. Collins may review your medical history and other information to determine if Latisse is suitable for you.
Approximately 4% of Latisse users report itching and/or eye redness, which are temporary. Less common are side effects that may occur on the skin near your eyes, such as skin darkening or irritation.
