Latisse® Eyelash Solution
Do you wish you had fuller, longer eyelashes—without makeup or false lashes? Try Latisse® eyelash solution available at our Paramus, New Jersey, medical spa! Latisse® is the only FDA-approved product indicated to treat sparse eyelashes by increasing their growth including length, thickness, and darkness.
Latisse® solution is a prescription treatment for hypotrichosis (inadequate or not enough eyelashes) used to grow eyelashes, making them longer, thicker, and darker. For many women, Latisse offers the results they desire. We invite you to consult with us to determine if Latisee is right for you.
How Does Latisse® Work?
Latisse® is believed to affect the growth (anagen) phase of the eyelash hair cycle in 2 ways: first, it increases the length of this phase; and second, it increases the number of hairs in this growth phase. The exact way it works is unknown.

How Soon Will I See Results With Latisse®?
The onset of effect with Latisse® solution is gradual. In clinical studies, the majority of Latisse® users saw a significant improvement by 2 months, and the results often continue to improve after that.
How Is Latisse® Different From Other Eyelash Serums?
Only Latisse® has been approved by the FDA as a prescription treatment for hypotrichosis used to grow eyelashes. It also has been studied in clinical trial to demonstrate its safety and effectiveness.

Can Anyone Use Latisse®?

- Previously diagnosed with eye pressure problems: People with a history of eye pressure problems (specifically elevated intraocular pressure) should speak to an eye care specialist before starting Latisse®
- Currently taking medication for eye pressure problems: People taking medication to lower their IOP should be closely monitored while using Latisse® solution
- Have risk factors for glaucoma: People with risk factors for an eye condition called glaucoma, including a family history of glaucoma, should speak to an eye care specialist before starting Latisse®
Is Latisse® Safe?
Latisse® has been FDA approved as a safe and effective medication for eyelash growth. Dr. Parker and our staff will be happy to go over this trial data with you at your consultation.
What Are the Possible Side Effects of Latisse®?
The most common side effects after using Latisse® are eye itching or eye redness, reported in a small percentage of users. Latisse® solution may cause other less common side effects, which typically occur on the skin close to where Latisse® is applied, or in the eyes. These include skin darkening, eye irritation, dryness, or redness of the eyelids.
If you develop a new eye condition (like an eye trauma or infection), experience a sudden decrease in vision, have eye surgery, or develop any eye reactions, particularly an infection and eyelid reactions, you should immediately talk to Dr. Parker or your opthalmologist about whether or not to continue using Latisse® solution.
