Latisse solution is an FDA-approved prescription treatment used to grow eyelashes, making them longer, thicker, and darker. The Las Vegas plastic surgery and dermatology office of Drs. Marvin and Candace Spann offer Latisse for patients desiring increased lash volume. Latisse works by affecting the growth phase of the eyelash hair cycle in two ways. First, it increases the length of the growth phase, and second, it increases the number of hairs during this phase. Most patients experience a noticeable increase in eyelash volume within about two months. Since Latisse is only available by prescription, please schedule a consultation with dermatologist Dr. Candace Spann to see if it is a suitable product for you.
"Dr. Candace Spann was incredible. Super patient, thorough, and very nice. I came to her for a checkup after having-a-less than desirable experience elsewhere and she was wonderful. After finishing paperwork there was just about a 10 minute wait and that was it. I'm so thankful to have found her!"- J.M. / Google / Sep 28, 2018
"After my granddaughter asked me if I was having a baby like her aunt, I started seriously looking at liposuction. I'm on the thin side and have tried diet and exercise to remove the bulge around my middle. I researched other facilities and options and found that none of them would give me the results I wanted. Dr. Marvin Spann was brought to my attention by his wife, Dr. Candace Spann, who I was seeing for yearly skin cancer screenings. Dr. Marvin Spann did a wonderful job on my liposuction, and a year later, I'm even happier with the results! These are both dedicated, professional, competent and caring doctors who want to make sure that their patients receive the best care. I travel from Henderson to see them because they are the best!"- D.C. / Yelp / Sep 15, 2018
"My husband suffered from a severe allergic reaction to medication he was prescribed. He is African-American and the allergic outbreak targeted his face. During the healing process, his skin tone darkened about 3 times his normal color. We didn't know where to turn for help as we were concerned about doing anything to his face. We made an appointment with Dr. Candace who recommended a protocol of chemical peels and laser. Dr. Candace's esthetician, Tonia, was amazing!! After the first few treatments, we noticed the difference as his skin began to lighten and even out. My husband elected to do 2 rounds of chemical peels and 2 rounds of laser therapy. His skin tone is better than ever!! Thank you Tonia for your expertise over the past year. We are so happy with the results."- M.C. / Yelp / Aug 28, 2018
"Post Bariatric Patient - I cannot express how grateful I am to have found Dr. Spann!!! He did a Fleur-de-lis Abdominoplasty, arm lift, and medial thigh lift on me. His work is impeccable!!!! Super nice guy and gave me the results I was looking for. I am a post bariatric weight loss patient and his work is outstanding! I highly recommend him!"- K. / RealSelf / Jun 09, 2018
"Dr. Candace Spann is amazing! I was having problems with my hair thinning. She was able to get to the root cause of the problem when all other dermatologist I had been to wrote it off as stress. She really cares about her patients and my son who is almost two absolutely loves her!! It will take a while for you to get in because Dr. Spann is so awesome, but she is worth the wait! Thank you Dr. Spann!!"- P.P. / Yelp / May 07, 2018
How Latisse Works?
LATISSE (known medically as bimatoprost) is a recreated form of a naturally occurring substance called prostaglandin that is proven to stimulate eyelash growth. By using LATISSE, two things occur within the growth cycle of an eyelash. First, it increases the length of the growth phase, and second, it multiplies the number of hairs during this same time.
What To Expect?
LATISSE is a topical medication with detailed, easy-to-follow instructions of use. Patients will simply wash their face thoroughly and use the sterile, disposable LATISSE applicators to apply the medicine to the upper eyelid. Contacts and all eye makeup will need to be removed before application. While the medication is applied only to the upper eyelid, it spreads to the lower eyelid during blinking for a uniform result. Most patients begin to see longer, fuller, and darker lashes in approximately 4 weeks. Patients seeking maximum results should remain on the medication and continue the application routine for a full 16 weeks.
FDA approved in 2008, LATISSE is a safe medication for most people to use. Certain individuals who have ongoing eye conditions, severe allergies, skin infections and other eye problems should not use LATISSE, as well as women who are pregnant and/or nursing. Individuals who do not have the medical and physical conditions mentioned above can use LATISSE with little risk, although eye irritation, dryness, or redness are possible side effects that can be managed. If you desire longer and thicker eyelashes, discuss LATISSE with our team to discover if it is a healthy option for you.
The average cost for LATISSE is around $120, although the cost will vary depending on the physician. LATISSE comes in a supply of 60 sterile applicators that last about a month.

Where Can I Buy Latisse?
LATISSE is a prescription medication and can only be obtained through a physician. Most cosmetic surgeons and dermatologists have expertise with this drug and thus are suitable specialists to visit in order to get evaluated and receive a prescription.
Can LATISSE Stain Eyelids?
This is a possible side effect that has been debated for several years. Skin darkening (skin hyperpigmentation) is very rare with LATISSE, although there have been cases where this has occurred. Once a patient stops using LATISSE, skin darkening usually reverses itself after a few months.
Can LATISSE Change Eye Color?
This is another side effect that has been debated. Clinical studies have shown, and Allergen does report that permanent brown iris pigmentation can be a potential side effect. Although this does not affect every patient and varies in color level, one should take this risk into consideration when deciding to take LATISSE.
What is Hypotrichosis?
Eyelash hypotridchosis is the medical name given to having lashes that are not long, full, or adequate. People who have this have fewer eyelashes in general, and the length and thickness are also limited.
