Latisse in Los Angeles, CA

Longer, thicker eyelashes are often considered one of the most alluring and feminine characteristics of women. To enhance and frame their eyes, women in Beverly Hills and Los Angeles, CA use Latisse® eyelash enhancement from board-certified plastic surgeon Jaime S. Schwartz, M.D., F.A.C.S., at Beverly Hills Breast and Body Institute MedSpa.

What Is Latisse®?

Latisse® is the only FDA-approved prescription treatment specifically developed to grow eyelashes, allowing people to have longer, thicker and darker eyelashes. Latisse® influences the growth (anagen) phase of the eyelash hair cycle, making this phase last longer and increasing the number of lashes in this growth phase.

Benefits of Latisse®

As the first FDA-approved treatment for the enhancement of eyelashes, Latisse® offers the following benefits:

  • Lengthens and thickens lashes
  • Strengthens lashes that become brittle with age
  • Darkens lashes with continued use
  • Treatments are done at home

How is Latisse® Administered?

At night, before going to sleep, one drop of the Latisse® is placed on the applicator and applied across the skin at the base of the eyelashes. Over time, usually a couple of months, there is significant improvement with noticeably thicker and longer lashes. It is important to note that if patients quit applying Latisse®, lashes typically return to their original length and appearance within several weeks to months.

Although Latisse® is applied at home, it is important to remember that it is a prescription medication, making it necessary to carefully follow the directions. Not only does it prevent any issues with the medication, it ensures that the process is done correctly so that the full results are achieved.

Latisse® Recovery

There is no real recovery from using Latisse® treatments. However, we do recommend waiting at least 15 minutes before putting in contacts. If there is any itching sensation, it should go away very quickly. Eyelashes return to their original state within a few weeks or months of stopping Latisse® treatments.

How Much Does Latisse® Cost?

The cost of Latisse® varies with each patient depending on their needs. Because it is considered a cosmetic treatment, Latisse® is not covered by insurance. Please refer to our financing page to view our payment options.

What Should I Do Next?

We recommend you schedule a consultation prior to your treatment to make sure you are a good candidate and have had no eye conditions that may prevent you from using Latisse®. If you have any questions, Dr. Schwartz can answer them at that time.
