For some people, no amount of mascara can get them the thicker, fuller eyelashes they want. Sometimes, the eyelashes grow short and thin, and you may be unhappy with the way your eyelashes seem hidden and obscured. Long, full eyelashes define your eyes and lend to the overall attractiveness of your face. At Morgenstern Center for Orbital and Facial Plastic Surgery and our Suite 202 medical spa, we think everyone deserves the confidence of flattering eyelashes. To schedule a consultation, please call us at 610.687.8771.
Latisse is an FDA-approved topical treatment for people who have inadequate lashes. To use Latisse, you must first visit our experienced oculoplastic surgeons Dr. Ken Morgenstern and Dr. Joseph Giacometti. You must get a prescription before using Latisse.
When used daily, Latisse creates longer, thicker, darker eyelashes. The active ingredient in the medication is called "bimatoprost," which is also used in other medications to treat glaucoma. Bimatoprost increases the growth phase of eyelashes and increases the number of individual lash hairs.
For Latisse to be effective, you must use it according to the instructions from our staff and as described on the medication's packaging. Generally you can expect to apply it to the upper eyelid once a day for about 16 weeks. The effect will be apparent once you have been using it for several weeks. The results start to fade once you stop using Latisse.
