How do Latisse treatments work?
Latisse is simple to apply and can help patients improve the overall growth of their eyelashes. Latisse serum should be applied each night by placing a single drop onto one of the sterile applicators included with your treatment serum. Latisse should only be applied to a face that is clean and free of makeup. Patients who use corrective lenses will need to remove their contacts before applying their Latisse serum. The serum should be brushed along the lash line of the upper eyelid and should not be used on the lower lashes. Excess solution can simply be dabbed away with a tissue and there is no need to worry if a small amount of the product does get into the eye.
Are there any side effects I should be aware of?
The most common potential side effect is hair growth in other areas if the Latisse serum comes in contact with other parts of the body. This is why it is important to remove excess product with a tissue if it comes in contact with any area other than the upper lash line. Latisse may also cause darkening of the skin on the eyelid or an increase in pigmentation of the iris. The eyelid pigmentation may be reversible however, the iris pigmentation changes could be permanent.
How long will it take for me to see results from Latisse?
Latisse serum treatments are designed to provide gradual improvement. Many patients will not see any noticeable difference in their eyelashes until a minimum of 4 weeks have gone by. However, patients should use Latisse serum every night for at least 16 weeks before they consider stopping their treatment. After 16 weeks, a follow-up appointment with your doctor at Southwest Michigan Dermatology can help determine whether Latisse treatments can stop or should be continued for a longer period of time.
Is Latisse expensive?
On average, patients may expect to pay approximately the same per diem as they might for a cup of coffee at their local coffee shop each morning. When discussing your treatment options with your dermatologist, they can help you understand the total potential cost of your treatment. Unfortunately, Latisse treatments are not covered by insurance because its purpose is considered cosmetic. Most patients will be able to reduce their applications of Latisse following an initial treatment period in order to maintain their results in the long term.
