Latisse for eyelash enhancement
- Posted on: Sep 6 2009
Latisse was released this year for both lengthening and darkening of deficient eyelashes. My experience thus far has been very positive. The patients (inclucing my wife) who have used the product have been very satisfied. The biggest problem with the product is that it is fairly expensive and when you stop using it the results go away fairly quickly.
The risks of Latisse are minimal but include skin irritation, iris pigmentation and bacterial infections of the eye. The FDA recently issued a warning to Allergan, the manufacturers of Latisse regarding their failure to adequately express these risks in their advertising.
Latisse cannot be purchased in a physicians office in Utah as it is a prescription medication. It can only be distributed through the pharmacy.
