Latisse® FAQs

What is hypotrichosis?

Hypotrichosis is simply another name for having inadequate or not enough lashes.

What is Latisse?

Latisse® is an ophthalmic solution to treat hypotrichosis of the eyelashes by increasing their growth, including length, thickness and darkness. It is believed to prolong the anagen (active growth) phase of the lashes. The exact way it works is unknown.

How do you use Latisse?

Patients should be informed that LATISSE® should be applied every night using only the accompanying sterile applicators. They should start by ensuring their face is clean, all makeup is removed, and their contact lenses removed (if applicable). Then carefully place one drop of LATISSE® solution on the disposable sterile applicator and brush cautiously along the skin of the upper eyelid margin at the base of the eyelashes. If any LATISSE® solution gets into the eye proper, it will not cause harm. The eye should not be rinsed. Patients should be informed not to apply to the lower eyelash line. Any excess solution outside the upper eyelid margin should be blotted with a tissue or other absorbent material.

Photofacial Laser Rejuvenation

Photo rejuvenation uses a specialized laser called Intense Pulse Light (IPL). Over a series of treatments, IPL fades the brown spots caused by the sun, improves skin texture, fine wrinkles and reduces pore size. IPL energy is absorbed just underneath the skin and allows for gentle and gradual improvement with minimal side effects and NO DOWN TIME!
