Latisse is a prescription lash serum designed to stimulate hair growth, resulting in lashes that are longer, thicker, and darker than before. The active ingredient in Latisse is bimatoprost ophthalmic and is FDA-approved to grow eyelashes. In clinical studies, patients using bimatoprost experienced 25% longer lashes, 106% fuller lashes and 18% darker lashes on average. Bimatoprost can also be used to treat thinning eyebrows.
Why do I need a prescription?
Although Latisse seems harmless and easy to use, the FDA determined that the side effects, misuse, or inappropriate use of bimatoprost could cause harm and therefore, restricted it to be obtained by prescription only. Because of this, only medical professionals can dispense and prescribe bimatoprost ophthalmic medications to ensure proper treatment and use.
The good news is that consultations are easy to schedule and relatively quick (about 30 minutes). Our licensed provider will determine if you are a candidate for the medication and also discuss the benefits, potential risks and proper use. Afterwards, you will leave our office with a prescription for Latisse/bimatoprost ophthalmic. A 9-12 month supply is provided with each consultation.
Consultation/ Prescription fee
$50 (can vary by pharmacy)
Important Do’s and Don’ts
Apply the solution directly on the applicator.
Use one clean applicator per eye.
Do not apply the solution to the lower lid or in the eye.
Carefully blot excess solution with a tissue.
Do not allow the applicator to touch any unintended surface.
Wait 15 minutes after application to re-insert contact lenses.
You may continue to use mascara, eye shadows, and eyeliner while using bimatoprost.
You may use excess solution on your eyebrows to stimulate hair growth.
Be patient. You may see new lash growth after 6 weeks, but full results take 16 weeks.
Remember, bimatoprost is not permanent. Continuous use is necessary to maintain results.
I’ve seen Danielle for several things and my results are always consistent and awesome. She has extensive knowledge and personal experience in every treatment she offers which gives a comfort while asking questions and about what to expect during treatment. Jeff at the front is on top of everything and it’s easy to get appointments, they are very accommodating and take care credit!!! I wouldn’t trust my face or body with anyone else. Top notch services and provider for Littleton. Thank you Danielle and Jeff, I do look amazing thanks to you two 😬Regina
Had a wonderful experience with Danielle & Jeff. Not only are they both extremely professional, I especially enjoyed how easy going Danielle is and how it felt so natural to chat with her about what services I might be looking for.
Truly great customer service every time I have gone into their office. They are always willing to spend as much time with you as you need to get all your questions answered. They truly do care about the well-being of their clients and not just the money. I would highly recommend them to anyone.
If you have a face and a body, you need to go see Danielle. It’s been one week since I’ve had BHRT pellets done by her, and as of today, I can already feel a difference with my sleep and energy levels. She has also done TruSculpt for me a few months ago, and the results have been fantastic. It feels amazing wearing cute clothes again, without feeling self conscious about a “muffin top”. It’s also a nice feeling having friends comment how great I look since doing the TruSculpt procedure.Danielle is the most fun, most knowledgeable, and most reassuring provider I’ve ever worked with. I feel so taken care of every time I visit her and Jeff at Skintastic Aesthetics. I love this place so much, and look forward to my next visit.
