Many patients want to know how to get longer, darker, thicker eyelashes without having to apply abundant mascara. Latisse is a new brand of product based on Allergan’s (the maker of Botox) eye drop, Lumigan (Bimatoprost 0.03%). It is the only FDA-approved eyelash enhancement product. It is applied daily with a special brush and changes are seen in 2 months. The full effect is seen in 4 months. It truly works.
Latisse eyelash enhancer is available by prescription or can be purchased at Allure Medical. It is important to have an oculoplastic or eye specialist follow your progress with Latisse. It is not advised for certain glaucoma patients, those who have a history of eye inflammation, and in other rare situations. Dr. Kotlus has worked with this medication for the last 6 years and has experience with its safe use.
