Latisse for Eyelash Enhancement
Long, luscious lashes are all the rage!
Brooke Shields, Jenny McCarthy, Mandy Moore, and Claire Danes all love Latisse and why wouldn’t they? Having longer, thicker, darker lashes—without the glunky mascara—makes your sizzle-appeal skyrocket.
In studies, 100% of patients got results—you can't say that too often! Latisse lengthens, thickens, and fills out sparse lashes. It also enables a longer growth phase and an increase in sprouting hairs. The bottom line: lusciously long lashes are youthful and rejuvenate your whole look!
When will I see results?
You will begin to see results after about two months of nightly use.
Dr. Evans may reduce the treatment schedule over time. Lashes return to their natural length when you stop using Latisse.
*Individual results may vary.
How do I use Latisse?
Latisse is an at-home treatment. After washing your face at night, dab it on your upper lash line with one of the single-use, sterile applicators that are supplied. As you blink, Latisse moves down your lashes automatically. You should not apply Latisse to the lashes of your lower lids or to your eyes. Since Latisse promotes hair growth, be sure to avoid other areas.

Latisse is FDA approved. It contains Lumigan, which was originally dropped directly into the eye to treat glaucoma. Glaucoma patients discovered that this treatment had a beautifying side effect and so Latisse was born! To quell any concerns, Lumigan has a 1-2% risk of permanently changing the pigmentation of the iris, but Latisse is painted along the lash line, not dropped directly into the eye. For this reason, the risk of changes to the iris is almost zero. It is possible to develop contact dermatitis, an itchy rash, on the eyelid at the site of application, but this risk is similar to using eye makeup. Should this happen, you simply stop the medication for good. we could then prescribe a gentle topical steroid. As is the case with any treatment, discuss your personal concerns with us.
