Latisse for Eyelash LengthLatisse, made by the creators of Botox,  is the first prescription treatment approved by the FDA for hypotrichosis (inadequate eyelashes) used to grow eyelashes, making them longer, thicker and darker.  It is generally believed to work by increasing the percentage of eyelash development during the eyelash growth phase.

This treatment is applied directly to the eyelashes, once a day. An applicator is supplied for each day of the month when you purchase the product.  Each day you are supposed to use a new sterile applicator.

Who is a Good Candidate For Latisse?

GBK-latisse-4(2)-largeIf you are generally unhappy with your eyelashes Latisse may be for you.  If you aren’t satisfied with the color, length or maybe you even use fake eyelashes every now and again you may want to talk to our doctors about trying Latisse.

If you are on heart medications, have certain allergic conditions or taking antibiotics you may not be a good candidate.

How Much Does It Cost?

The cost of Latisse depends on where you get it and any special promotions that we may be running or ones sponsored by the manufacturer (Allergan). Latisse is only available by prescription so you can’t get it anywhere else except for a doctors office.
