LATISSE® in Orlando
LATISSE® is a prescription treatment (active ingredient - bimatoprost) for thin, inadequate eyelashes. Used as prescribed, the medication can improve eyelash prominence, length, thickness and darkness.
What is LATISSE®?
The medication was first approved to lower intraocular pressure in patients with certain types of glaucoma and ocular hypertension. Patients, who were treated with bimatoprost for various eye conditions, experienced eyelash growth as a side effect.
Why choose LATISSE®?
Users may see initial results about 8 weeks after beginning treatments. The growth is gradual and everyone is different, but most people achieve maximum results in 12 to 16 weeks. Your lashes do not just look better after treatment with LATISSE®, they are better.
Is LATISSE® Safe?
According to the FDA, LATISSE eyelash lengthener is safe for most people. However, you may not be a candidate for it if you have certain eye problems or eye surgery. Pregnant women should not use it, and nursing women may want to wait.
How is this Procedure Conducted?
Before you apply, your face must be clean and your makeup and contact lenses removed. Then, you use a sterile applicator (supplied with the medication) to apply LATISSE® by dabbing it on the upper lash line each night. The medication spreads to your lower lash line automatically as you blink. According to the manufacturer, you should never apply it in your eye or onto your lower lid.
How often should I do LATISSE®?
Your provider will discuss your needs for eyelash length, thickness, fullness, pigmentation, and volume of eyelash hairs to determine your exact regimen. Maintenance treatments of 2-3 times per week can be started at any time after that. The choice is yours.
Naturally, when you stop using LATISSE®, your eyelashes will eventually return to their original state. Like the hair on your head, eyelashes sprout, grow for a while, and eventually shed.
If you think it is time for LATISSE®, call our Orlando dermatology practice at 800-827-SKIN (7546) to schedule a consultation and restore the natural beauty to your eyelashes.

I recently saw Annette at the Altamonte office for a skin screening. I was greeted by Carol, who was very pleasant and upbeat. She made me feel at ease from the moment I walked in and explained the paperwork and co-pay questions I had. My appointment was at 9:30am and Annette's nurse called me back at 9:35am. I was pleasantly surprised that my appointment was on time. Not that I would have minded waiting, since that is normally how that goes at a doctor's office. The medical assistant was very professional, explained procedures and answered any questions I had with knowledge. Annette is a very smart and detail oriented person, she was very pleasant to talk to and answered my questions and concerns. She gave me information brochures, samples of creams and I left with a good peace of mind. I felt that all of my concerns were addressed and Annette listened to all of my concerns. I would highly recommend this office to everybody. It is a great team, the have a great work ethic and dynamic going on! Thank you all for a great experience.
