Latisse Eyelash Growth Serum in South Florida
What is LATISSE®?
LATISSE® is a prescription treatment for hypotrichosis used to grow eyelashes, making them longer, thicker and darker.
Who should not take LATISSE®?
Do not use LATISSE® solution if you are allergic to one of its ingredients.
What should I do if I get LATISSE® in my eye?
LATISSE® solution is an ophthalmic drug product. LATISSE® is not expected to cause harm if it gets into the eye. Do not attempt to rinse your eye in this situation.
What are the possible side effects of LATISSE®?
The most common side effects after using LATISSE® solution are an itching sensation in the eyes and/or eye redness. This was reported in approximately 4% of patients. LATISSE® solution may cause other less common side effects which typically occur on the skin close to where LATISSE® is applied, or in the eyes. These include skin darkening, eye irritation, dryness of the eyes, and redness of the eyelids.
What happens if I stop using LATISSE®?
If you stop using LATISSE®, your eyelashes are expected to return to their previous appearance over several weeks to months. Any eyelid skin darkening is expected to reverse after several weeks to months. Any darkening of the colored part of the eye (the iris) is not expected to reverse and is likely permanent.
How do I use LATISSE®?
LATISSE® solution is packaged as a 3 mL bottle of solution with 60 accompanying sterile, disposable applicators. The recommended dosage is one application nightly to the skin of the upper eyelid margin at the base of the eyelashes only. Once nightly, start by ensuring your face is clean and makeup and contact lenses are removed. Remove an applicator from its tray. Then, holding the sterile applicator horizontally, place one drop of LATISSE® on the area of the applicator closest to the tip, but not directly on the tip. Then immediately draw the applicator carefully across the skin of the upper eyelid margin at the base of the eyelashes (where the eyelashes meet the skin) going from the inner part of your lash line to the outer part. Blot any excess solution beyond the eyelid margin. Dispose of the applicator after one use. Repeat for the opposite upper eyelid margin using a new sterile applicator. This helps minimize any potential for contamination from one eyelid to another.
