Manufactured and sold by Allergan, the makers of BOTOX®, LATISSE® (bimatoprost ophthalmic solution 0.03%) is the first and only prescription treatment for enhancing eyelashes approved by the FDA. Patients carefully apply it once a day directly to the base of their lashes. With consistent application over 16 weeks, the lashes will gradually lengthen and grow fuller, appearing more noticeable and prominent. Nightly application takes only a minute.
Side effects are normally minimal. Interested in obtaining LATISSE® in the Beverly Hills area? It can be purchased in our office.

Guidelines for the Best Results
Establish a Routine
The best way to maintain consistent application is to add LATISSE® into your regularly scheduled evening activities, such as removing your makeup and brushing your teeth.
Make it Accessible
Store the LATISSE® bottle near makeup or other skin care products to keep it handy.
Over-application will not speed results and may lead to irritation. Know that LATISSE® works, but only with consistent use over time.
*Patient results may vary.
Be a Blank Slate
Start with a clean, dry canvas. Remove all dirt and residue from your eyelids and wipe off any excess oils with soap and water to ensure a fresh surface before you apply. Be sure to take out any contact lenses.
Don’t Break the Rules
Allergan specially designs the applicator for precise application of the product. Use this and only this in your nightly routine.
Don’t Make Up Missed Doses
If you forget to apply the product one night, don’t double your dose in an effort to stay on track. Start applications anew the next night and commit to staying on schedule.
Keep It Clean
The applicator and mouth of the bottle can become contaminated if they come into contact with any other surfaces, including your fingers, which can lead to infection.
Photograph yourself throughout the process so you can see the amazing results firsthand, comparing your own before-and-after photos once the ideal results have been achieved.
