If you've always wished you had beautiful thick long eye lashes without having to rely on falsies, glue on extensions, or thick mascara, LATISSE® may be an ideal treatment for you.
In 2008, Allergan, the makers of BOTOX® and Juvederm® created LATISSE®, a prescription eyelash enhancement drug. According to a recent study, patients that used LATISSE® reported 106% thicker, and 18% darker eyelashes with a growth in length of 25% over 16 weeks of application. With a prescription from Dr. Jaime Schwartz, patients simply apply LATISSE® to the upper eyelid at night before bed, and watch LATISSE® add extra charm to their eyes by giving them longer, fuller, and darker lashes. Latisse treatment is being done at Dr. Jaime S. Schwartz's office at Beverly Hills, California, or his Dubai, UAE office.

HOW LATISSE® WORKS
LATISSE® (known medically as bimatoprost) is a recreated form of a naturally occurring substance called prostaglandin that is proven to stimulate eyelash growth. By using LATISSE®, two things occur within the growth cycle of an eyelash. First, it increases the length of the growth phase, and second, it multiplies the number of hairs during this same time.
WHAT TO EXPECT
LATISSE® is a topical medication with detailed, easy-to-follow instructions of use. Patients will simply wash their face thoroughly and use the sterile, disposable LATISSE® applicators to apply the medicine to the upper eyelid. Contacts and all eye makeup will need to be removed before application. While the medication is applied only to the upper eyelid, it spreads to the lower eyelid during blinking for a uniform result. Most patients begin to see longer, fuller, and darker lashes in approximately 4 weeks. Patients seeking maximum results should remain on the medication and continue the application routine for a full 16 weeks.
FDA approved in 2008, LATISSE® is a safe treatment for most people to use. Certain individuals who have ongoing eye conditions, severe allergies, skin infections and other eye problems should not use LATISSE®, as well as women who are pregnant and/or nursing. Individuals who do not have the medical and physical conditions mentioned above can use LATISSE® with little risk, although eye irritation, dryness, or redness are possible side effects that can be managed. If you desire longer and thicker eyelashes, discuss LATISSE® with our team to discover if it is a healthy option for you.
WHERE CAN I BUY LATISSE®?
LATISSE® is a prescription medication and can only be obtained through a physician. You can visit Dr. Jaime Schwartz in Beverly Hills to request a consultation and purchase LATISSE®.
CAN LATISSE® STAIN EYELIDS?
LATISSE®, when applied correctly, should not cause discoloration of the upper or lower lids. If there has been any unintentional discoloration of the eyelids, rest assured it is reversible. For instructions on proper usage of LATISSE®, please contact us for a consultation with Dr. Jaime S. Schwartz.
DOES LATISSE® CHANGE EYE COLOR
This is a common misconception. In extremely rare instances there has been a change in eye color when the glaucoma medication that is used in LATISSE® was applied directly to the cornea. However, in studies done with LATISSE®, there were no reports of change in eye color.
WHAT IS HYPOTRICHOSIS?
LATISSE® is a treatment for hypotrichosis, the scientific term for inadequate or not enough eyelashes.
