For patients who suffer from hypotrichosis, eyelash growth is inadequate, so eyelashes look sparse and unappealing. Latisse is the FDA-approved treatment that can be applied directly to eyelashes to grow them longer, fuller and darker over time. Cosmetic surgeons, Dr. Erik Nuveen and Dr. Courtney Caplin, of Cosmetic Surgery Affiliates in Oklahoma City prescribe the medication because patients can start to see real results in as little as a few weeks. The topical treatment is applied every night after the face has been thoroughly cleaned. Typically, patients see results in 8-12 weeks and full results can be achieved in around 16 weeks.
Schedule a Consultation
"From the moment I walked in and started my consultation, I felt so comfortable. Every single staff member I spoke to was kind and attentive. A breast augmentation consult has the potential to be a little awkward (so I experienced at a previous establishment), but not at CSA. I was able to comfortably discuss and show the surgeon and nurse what I wanted to achieve and ask all the questions. I schedule my surgery that day. Sarah, helped with the financing consult and was beyond supportive. Not only did she provide support before but evens two weeks post op she is answering all my questions. She is a truly wonderful person who was meant for that job and goes above and beyond. I chose Dr. kaplin to do my surgery and met with her right before because I had a change of mind and wanted to increase my implant size last minute. She was very open and helpful with this. I took in her advice and I was able to decide on what larger implant I wanted. She never made me feel like a pain and listened to what I wanted and gave me what I wanted. Looked through photos with me and discusses options. Post op, my results I am beyond happy with! It has been two weeks post op and I don’t have a single regret! There were so many Cheerful and great ladies, I can’t even name them all. Thank you so much CSA!"- C.R. / Google / Mar 14, 2023

"I had a surgery in Amarillo, TX, that went wrong with a plastic surgeon local, I was afraid I could not find a surgeon, to treat me, I searched for a surgeon, more qualified than a plastic surgeon, and Cosmetic Affiliates came up, I read the difference between a plastic surgeon and a cosmetic surgeon, there is a difference, I could tell there was a difference, in the consultation and the consultation that I had with the plastic surgeon in Amarillo. As of now, it’s worth consulting with a cosmetic surgeon. I loved meeting with Dr. Chaplin, I will keep you posted Post-Op, on the positive note, she has her own Surgery Center, so you don’t have to work with a public Surgery Center, and her pricing was better. I should have thought out of the box, and looked at OKC to begin with!"- R.M. / Google / Feb 17, 2023

How LATISSE Works
Also known as bimatoprost, Latisse is derived from prostaglandin that helps with hair growth. When concentrated on the eyes, it promotes the eyelashes to be thicker and longer per strand. Additionally, the medication also helps in multiplying the number of hairs, making the eyelashes appear heavier, which some find appealing and sexy.
What to Expect
Latisse is easy to use, and includes step-by-step instructions. With a clean face – no makeup or contact lenses – Latisse is applied with a single-use applicator on the upper eyelid. A clean applicator allows the eyelids to adequately absorb the medication. It is not necessary to treat the lower eyelid because blinking will cause the medication on the upper eyelid to spread, which ensures the results are even. Ideally, regular daily use up to 16 weeks will render optimal results.
Latisse has been available since 2008 when the FDA approved that it is safe to use by most patients. Those who have skin or eye conditions, allergies and other problems related to eyes must not use Latisse. It is also not recommended for pregnant or nursing mothers. Generally, Latisse complications are very rare. It is normal to get irritation, dryness or redness, but all of these side effects can be easily managed. Consult with a doctor to discuss Latisse in further detail to make sure it is the best option for the desire results.
Latisse costs around $175 per package, but prices vary based on the doctor’s suggested pricing. A package includes 60 applicators for 2-months use.

Where To Purchase?
Latisse is not available in drugstores and can only be bought with a medical prescription. An evaluation is required before any doctor can prescribe the medication. A thorough exam for eye-related conditions will help evaluate if Latisse is safe to use for the patient’s circumstances.
It is common among patients that using Latisse can cause hyperpigmentation, which can make the eyes appear darker. It is a possible side effect but it is very rare. In the few instances that skin darkening has been reported, the condition reversed itself and the eyelids went back to their normal skin color when patients stopped using Latisse.
Another possible side effect may be brown pigmentation in the iris. This side effect is not limited to brown color and can vary patient to patient. Patients must understand this side effect before taking Latisse even though it has been minimally reported.
Little Amount of Eyelashes?
There is a medical condition called hypotridchosis when eye lashes are shorter than normal and look spare. Latisse is an ideal solution for this condition. Patients treated with Latisse report a boost in confidence with Latisse’s natural looking results.
