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.

"I got my lift and implants from Dr.Sohn and love them so much. He was so knowledgeable and explained every detail. He had me come in person for a consult even though I live 4 hours away which I appreciate now because what I thought I wanted ended up being totally different. He listened to my concerns while respecting my decisions and his bedside manners were amazing. I would use him again and recommend anyone I know to him. Thank you so much. I’m so beyond happy with the results."- K.C. / Google / May 01, 2021

"My almost 14 year old daughter had a large dorsal hump from an injury. She was very insecure and hated her side profile. As silly as I thought it was and as beautiful as she is, she wanted to do something to feel better about her nose. Because of her age, rhinoplasty was not an option. Dr. Caplin reshaped her nose using fillers and the dorsal hump was no longer noticeable. She did an excellent job and made my daughter feel beautiful. The results were beyond our expectations."- D.S. / Google / Apr 15, 2021
"Dr. Erik Nuveen is a miracle worker! I had my double chin removed (platysmaplasty) and liposuction done to my jawline. The confidence I have gained is incredible and worth every penny!"- B.D. / Google / Apr 14, 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.
