Long, healthy eyelashes are a very desirable feature, creating an attractive accent around the eyes. If you live in or around Philadelphia and you’re looking for a way to increase the volume of your lashes, Dr. John J.W. Lee might recommend LATISSE.

LATISSE® is a prescription treatment that makes your eyelashes grow longer, thicker, and darker. When applied to the skin on your upper eyelid, LATISSE® solution prolongs the growth cycle of eyelash hairs and increases the amount of hair produced during that period.

To get the best results with LATISSE®, it’s important to follow the directions for use carefully:

  • Remove makeup and other beauty products from around your eyes
  • Take out contact lenses, if you wear them
  • Put one drop of LATISSE® solution in the green/blue bottle cap
  • Place the point of the disposable applicator into the cap
  • Draw the applicator along the portion of the upper eyelid where the skin meets the lashes
  • Dab away excess solution with a tissue
  • Throw the applicator away

LATISSE® solution should only be applied to the directed area of the upper eyelid. Applying the solution to the lower eyelid could result in excess or unwanted hair growth. You should also stop using LATISSE® if you have an active infection or experience inflammation in the eye.

For optimal results, Dr. Lee recommends using a 5 ML quantity of LATISSE® nightly for three and a half months. We sell the 5 ML bottle for $150, a nearly $100 value compared to the suggested retail price.
