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.

"Dr. Nuveen has gave me a body lift, skin removal, tummy tuck, bbl, breast lift and augmentation after my 212 pound weight loss. He was very attentive and listened to my concerns and what I wanted! And he gave it all too me. His staff has always treated me like family when I call or walked in the door. I wouldn’t use anyone else for my cosmetic needs. He changed my life."- B.S. / Google / Dec 30, 2021
"This was my first cosmetic procedure and I got a breast augmentation. This place was absolutely great from start to finish. The whole staff made the process easy and comfortable, from the first call to the final day of surgery. I had to reschedule my surgery and they were great about that as well. Dr Jung performed my procedure , she was so kind and even texted me the night after my surgery to check up on me. She took a lot of time to discuss the look I wanted as well as my goals . I couldn’t be happier with the size and look of my breast ! The pain was in my opinion very minimal as well. I’m only one week post op but all of the pain is mostly gone and the wound is healing nicely . I’ll definitely recommend them to all of my friends and family ! I already feel so much more confidence!"- B.I. / Google / Dec 21, 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.
