What is LATISSE?
LATISSE is an FDA-approved treatment for hypotrichosis of the eyelashes, available only by prescription. It is used to enhance eyelash growth for those with inadequate or insufficient lashes, making them longer, fuller and darker.
How Does LATISSE Work?
LATISSE is clinically proven to enhance eyelash growth. It works by lengthening the period of growth of the eyelash hair, and increases the number of hairs grown during this period. Ideally, the product should be applied each evening to the base of the upper eyelashes. Results are gradual and can eventually be seen in as early as four weeks of treatment, while full results can be seen in four months.
If you are a good candidate for LATISSE treatment, Oculoplastic surgeon Dr. Amiya Prasad would be more than willing to explain the procedure in detail and give you written instructions on how to apply the solution yourself for the best results.
- Side effects include itchy and red eyes.
- Eyelid skin darkening may occur during treatment, but may be reversible.
- Apply the product on explicitly specified areas only, as hair tends to grow on areas frequently touched by LATISSE.
Before making a decision, consider having a personal evaluation with New York eyelid surgery specialist and Oculoplastic surgeon Dr. Amiya Prasad at his Manhattan and Garden City offices, to determine if you are a candidate for this innovative and effective eyelash growth product.
