Latisse is a prescription medication that is FDA approved for the treatment of hypotrichosis (inadequate or not enough lashes). It stimulates the eyelashes to grow longer, fuller, and darker. Drs. Velargo and Hendrick have great experience with medication, and they are happy to discuss if you are a candidate for a prescription.

Latisse is a great way to treat:

  • Short lashes
  • Thin lashes
  • Light lashes

Drs. Velargo and Hendrick will review the proper application of the product with you during your consultation.  While many people fear it will change the color of their eyes, this is exceedingly rare and more related to the manner in which the medication is applied. In fact, the most common reaction is redness or irritation at the site of application. The doctors will be happy to discuss this in more detail with you during your consultation.

After starting to use Latisse, you’ll first begin to see changes in length. Then, gradually, you’ll notice more thickness and darkness in your lashes. If you’re satisfied with your results by week 8, don’t stop! Stick with the treatment. After week 16, you’ll see the full effect of Latisse — and so will others. After that, you can talk to Dr. Velargo or Dr. Hendrick about ongoing use. If you stop using Latisse at any time, your eyelashes will return to their previous appearance over several weeks to months.
