Planning for LATISSE®
Women or men who are interested in growing fuller, thicker and darker eyelashes are encouraged to schedule a consultation with Dr. Nein. Because LATISSE® is not available over-the-counter, it is only possible to attain after consulting with a medical professional. During your consultation, Dr. Nein will discuss the effects of LATISSE® with you and go over any variables that may impact your results.
Dr. Nein will also ask you if you have any health conditions that may affect the use of LATISSE®, such as glaucoma or ocular hypertension. He will explain how to use the product and advise you of any side effects.
After using LATISSE® daily for 12 to 16 weeks, you should see an increase in your eyelash length, thickness, fullness, and darkness, although individual results may vary.
In a follow-up visit to Dr. Nein, he may recommend that you reduce application of the product to every two nights if ideal results have been attained. Once you reach your optimal results, you can enjoy the sensually enhanced look of fuller, thicker and sexier eyelashes, bringing out the best in your facial features.
