For patients who suffer from hypotrichosis, eyelash growth is inadequate, so eyelashes look sparse and unappealing. Latisse is the FDA-approved treatment that can be applied directly to eyelashes to grow them longer, fuller and darker over time. Cosmetic surgeons, Dr. Erik Nuveen and Dr. Courtney Caplin, of Cosmetic Surgery Affiliates in Oklahoma City prescribe the medication because patients can start to see real results in as little as a few weeks. The topical treatment is applied every night after the face has been thoroughly cleaned. Typically, patients see results in 8-12 weeks and full results can be achieved in around 16 weeks.

"Everyone is very kind, and answered any questions I had. They also helped with suggestions to get me to exactly where I wanted to be. I am beyond satisfied with my breast aug. My breast were small and one a little bigger than the other. They have definitely never been an asset, that is not the case anymore. They are exactly the size I wanted and they look great. My confidence has never been better. Dr Nuveen is very compassionate about his profession, his best interest are on his patients and there outcome. He has great bed side manners, and is very kind. He is also very informative, he explained the procedure very well, and what to expect. He followed up with me the day after the surgery, even though it was a Saturday. He is always very kind and informative at each follow up appointment, and answers any questions I have. You will not be disappointed if you use Cosmetic Surgery Affiliates!!"- L.C. / Google / Jun 10, 2021

How LATISSE Works
Also known as bimatoprost, Latisse is derived from prostaglandin that helps with hair growth. When concentrated on the eyes, it promotes the eyelashes to be thicker and longer per strand. Additionally, the medication also helps in multiplying the number of hairs, making the eyelashes appear heavier, which some find appealing and sexy.
What to Expect
Latisse is easy to use, and includes step-by-step instructions. With a clean face – no makeup or contact lenses – Latisse is applied with a single-use applicator on the upper eyelid. A clean applicator allows the eyelids to adequately absorb the medication. It is not necessary to treat the lower eyelid because blinking will cause the medication on the upper eyelid to spread, which ensures the results are even. Ideally, regular daily use up to 16 weeks will render optimal results.
Latisse has been available since 2008 when the FDA approved that it is safe to use by most patients. Those who have skin or eye conditions, allergies and other problems related to eyes must not use Latisse. It is also not recommended for pregnant or nursing mothers. Generally, Latisse complications are very rare. It is normal to get irritation, dryness or redness, but all of these side effects can be easily managed. Consult with a doctor to discuss Latisse in further detail to make sure it is the best option for the desire results.
Latisse costs around $175 per package, but prices vary based on the doctor’s suggested pricing. A package includes 60 applicators for 2-months use.

Where To Purchase?
Latisse is not available in drugstores and can only be bought with a medical prescription. An evaluation is required before any doctor can prescribe the medication. A thorough exam for eye-related conditions will help evaluate if Latisse is safe to use for the patient’s circumstances.
It is common among patients that using Latisse can cause hyperpigmentation, which can make the eyes appear darker. It is a possible side effect but it is very rare. In the few instances that skin darkening has been reported, the condition reversed itself and the eyelids went back to their normal skin color when patients stopped using Latisse.
Another possible side effect may be brown pigmentation in the iris. This side effect is not limited to brown color and can vary patient to patient. Patients must understand this side effect before taking Latisse even though it has been minimally reported.
Little Amount of Eyelashes?
There is a medical condition called hypotridchosis when eye lashes are shorter than normal and look spare. Latisse is an ideal solution for this condition. Patients treated with Latisse report a boost in confidence with Latisse’s natural looking results.
