Atlanta patients looking for longer, thicker and darker eyelashes may consider Latisse® to achieve these results. Latisse® is a prescription drug for hypotrichosis (inadequate lashes) and is used to grow eyelashes longer, fuller and darker. According to studies, this eyelash enhancement drug resulted in 106% thicker, and 18% darker eyelashes in patients with a growth in length of 25% over 16 weeks. Patients simply apply Latisse® to the upper eyelid before bed, and watch how it creates lashes that once could only be attained with falsies.

Where Can I Buy Latisse?
Latisse® is a prescription medication and can only be obtained through a physician. Most cosmetic surgeons and dermatologists have expertise with this drug and thus are suitable specialists to visit in order to get evaluated and receive a prescription.
Can Latisse® Stain Eyelids?
This is a possible side effect that has been debated for several years. Skin darkening (skin hyperpigmentation) is very rare with LATISSE, although there have been cases where this has occurred. Once a patient stops using Latisse, skin darkening usually reverses itself after a few months.
Can Latisse® Change Eye Color?
This is another side effect that has been debated. Clinical studies have shown, and Allergen does report that permanent brown iris pigmentation can be a potential side effect. Although this does not affect every patient and varies in color level, one should take this risk into consideration when deciding to take Latisse.
What Is Hypotrichosis?
Eyelash hypotridchosis is the medical name given to having lashes that are not long, full, or adequate. People who have this have fewer eyelashes in general, and the length and thickness are also limited.
