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.

Last week I had the opportunity to meet you and your fine staff as you worked to clean up a cancerous spot on my face. It turned out to be a lot deeper than anyone including me believed. It took five passes to get to the bottom of it. No one on your team gave up on the effort to get it all. Every time I had to go back for you to search further, everyone was upbeat and positive. Words cannot express how important this was to me as I was getting more and more discourages. Peter, and your magical staff, could not have been more professional nor kind. They each in their own way went out of their way to make me as comfortable as possible while explaining what was going to happen next. Further, I am deeply appreciative of you taking the time to meet with my wonderful wife to explain the process, successes, and challenges.
