We understand the annoyance of having short, thin eyelashes or feeling the need to wear mascara every day. That’s why we offer our patients the opportunity to try Latisse, a prescription drug for cosmetic purposes.
Latisse is the brand name for bimatoprost ophthalmic solution, a prescription serum applied to the eyelash line to enhance eyelash appearance. The solution has been shown to promote eyelash production, helping them grow longer, thicker, and darker.
Bimatoprost is an active ingredient in prescription eye drops used to treat glaucoma. Regular use of the medication in patients with glaucoma caused eyelash growth unexpectedly, which led to the creation of Latisse.
Latisse may be contraindicated with certain eye conditions, so you should make us aware of any eye or health problems. If you have eye problems such as conjunctivitis, macular edema, or uveitis, you should not use Latisse.
Additionally, if you’re using glaucoma medication, please mention it to your doctor. The active ingredient in Latisse lowers eye pressure, so you should be monitored while using this serum.
If you’re interested in Latisse, we recommend coming in for a consultation to thoroughly examine your eyes and ensure the product is right for you.
