Makeup can only do so much to enhance the appearance of the eyelashes. With Latisse®, patients can achieve enhanced natural eyelash growth for more dramatic eyelashes. Newport Plastic Surgery offers Latisse® with Dr. Go, a highly trained plastic surgery physician in Newport Beach, Costa Mesa, Irvine, and the nearby areas of CA.
What is Latisse®?
Latisse® (Bimatoprost ophthalmic solution) was originally used as an eyedrop for glaucoma patients where physicians noticed that treated patients developed thicker, longer eye lashes. It was only a matter of time before cosmetic giant, Allergan, took note of this ‘side effect’ in order to secure and fine-tune the formula for maximal effect. Now, Latisse® is a prescribed topical solution that is used to enhance eyelash growth. Many people begin to experience thinning or shortening eyelashes as they age, or may have these symptoms at a young age due to genetics. Latisse® extends the growth period of the eyelashes, allowing them to grow fuller and longer. With regular use of Latisse®, patients can achieve thicker, darker eyelashes that enhance the eyes and the overall aesthetic appearance.
How Much Does Latisse® Cost?
The cost of Latisse® can vary depending on the extent of treatment necessary to deliver a patient’s desired results. When you schedule a consultation with Dr. Go of Newport Plastic Surgery, he will develop a personalized treatment plan based on your specific cosmetic goals. Once this treatment plan is developed, we will be able to provide you with the exact cost of treatment. We also offer financing through CareCredit® to make this and other treatments more affordable.
How Does Latisse® Work?
Latisse® should be used every night by applying the product to the upper eyelashes. You should remove make-up and clean the eyelids before application for maximum effect. The Latisse® formula begins to work immediately, extending the growth cycle of eyelashes to produce darker, longer, and thicker eyelashes. However, results do not become apparent until typically 4-6 weeks after recommended use.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect from Latisse®?
Most patients notice results from Latisse® approximately 4-6 weeks after beginning treatment. With regular use, optimal results will develop approximately 16 weeks after starting treatment. The results will persist as long as daily use of Latisse® is maintained. If you stop using Latisse®, your eyelashes will gradually return to their original length within several weeks.
