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.

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 am more than pleased with my experience today! First, I was able to get on last minute, which I was not expecting! Danielle was very nice and professional, with a side of silliness! I loved that! She is extremely knowledgeable and not pushy! This is a great Med Spa, I will be back!Jeff at the front was great too!
Danielle & Jeff are warm welcoming and professional. Danielle has a delicate caring touch and vast experience that shows in the final results. Before Skintastic I’ve been to several other places for treatment, this is by far the best and won’t trust anyone else from now on. Have used Danielle for the past year for three different kind treatments and very pleased.
I worked as a Dermatology nurse for close to 10 years and have seen and assisted with many cosmetic treatments in the past. I have to say that Danielle is one of the best providers you will ever find! She takes the time needed to explain the procedure. She makes you feel comfortable and welcome. She is highly trained on the newest techniques and every service is performed at the top level. You won’t find a better value in a more modern, welcoming environment anywhere.
CO2 Chest Resurfacing Treatment:First off, it begins as soon as you walk in–there’s a warm welcome. They always take a moment to chat with you before the procedure begins.I got my chest resurfaced to get rid of the lines. Danielle talked at length with me prior to the procedure. I also tend to “bird walk” to ask her other questions that had nothing to do with the procedure and she was so responsive. She didn’t make me feel like I had to hurry to ask questions. Anyhow, she did such a GREAT job of making sure I was as comfortable as possible and checking in with me the whole time. I’m also going back to take care of my face. She’s just so awesome and I highly, highly recommend her for all of her procedures that she offers.
I love Danielle at Skintastic. She listens and addresses concerns, and gives multiple options (when applicable) for desired outcomes.She is never pushy, and truly wants the best and most cost-effective outcomes for her clients.I highly recommend her services!
