How Latisse® Works?
Atlanta patients looking for longer, thicker and darker eyelashes may consider Latisse to achieve these results. Latisse is a prescription drug for hypotrichosis (inadequate lashes) and is used to grow eyelashes longer, fuller and darker. According to studies, this eyelash enhancement drug resulted in 106% thicker, and 18% darker eyelashes in patients with a growth in length of 25% over 16 weeks. Patients simply apply Latisse to the upper eyelid before bed, and watch how it creates lashes that once could only be attained with falsies. Be sure to check our specials as well as rebates from Allergan for Latisse.
" I could NOT be happier with the services and products received at Dr. Connors office! First, making an appointment was super easy, the ladies in the front office are so extremely nice (and insanely beautiful) and the treatment from the time you walk in the door to the time you leave is so comforting. I had juvederm in my lips and it was slightly painful as expected (needles, duh) but he was so gentle and I couldn't be happier with the natural looking results. I'll be going back again and again. You have to try the TNS serum too. I share it with my celebrity clients and we are all addicted. Took 10 years off my face. And this latisse has my lashes looking better than they have EVER looked! Thank you guys so much! See you soon!! "- C.H. / Google / Dec 11, 2013
Latisse Ideal Candidate
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 with Latisse®
Lattise is a topical medication with detailed, easy-to-follow instructions of use. Patients will simply wash their face thoroughly and use the sterile, disposable Lattise 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 medication 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.

Where Can I Buy Latisse?
Latisse is a prescription medication and can only be obtained through a physician. Most cosmetic surgeons and dermatologists have expertise with this drug and thus are suitable specialists to visit in order to get evaluated and receive a prescription.
Can Latisse Stain Eyelids?
This is a possible side effect that has been debated for several years. Skin darkening (skin hyperpigmentation) is very rare with LATISSE, although there have been cases where this has occurred. Once a patient stops using Latisse, skin darkening usually reverses itself after a few months.
Can Latisse Change Eye Color?
This is another side effect that has been debated. Clinical studies have shown, and Allergen does report that permanent brown iris pigmentation can be a potential side effect. Although this does not affect every patient and varies in color level, one should take this risk into consideration when deciding to take Latisse.
What is Hypotrichosis?
Eyelash hypotridchosis is the medical name given to having lashes that are not long, full, or adequate. People who have this have fewer eyelashes in general, and the length and thickness are also limited.
