What is LATISSE™?

Our Chalmette optical is excited to offer LATISSE™ in order to help our patients who suffer from Hypotrichosis, a condition in which they do not have enough eyelashes. LATISSE™ is FDA-Approved and gives our patients longer and thicker eyelashes.

How LATISSE™ Works

LATISSE™ is a prescription eyelash solution, much like a serum, that you apply to the base of your upper eyelashes every evening. It gradually grows your eyelashes in two ways:

  • Increasing the eyelash growth phase
  • Increasing the amount of eyelashes that emerge in the growth phase

It will take about 4 weeks before you begin to notice eyelash growth, but after week 16 you will see fuller, longer eyelashes.

Common Side Effects After Using LATISSE™:

  • Itchy eyes
  • Red eyes

If you are interested in LATISSE™, please contact us so we can book a consultation and have our Chalmette optometrist evaluate your eyes.
