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.

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.
