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.
"I cant express in words how absolutely in love with my results and the care I received throughout the entire process! After researching several other doctors and a having a few other consultations with other Doctors, I was blown away by the entire staff and Dr.Nuveen's guidance to achieving the results I wanted. Literally all of the staff was amazing in answering any/all questions I had and did an amazing job with communication especially since I was an out of town patient. I felt like I was actually a "cared about patient" than just another dollar sign. I whole heartedly recommend them and hope that this review helps anyone considering this amazing staff and facility! Thank you isnt enough for such amazing results and bringing me so much more confidence. Forever grateful!"- B.W. / Google / Jun 04, 2022

"I’ve had such a great experience with CSA. The facility is clean, beautiful and inviting. The women at the front desk are always friendly, both over the phone and in person. I had a consultation for a breast augmentation in March. The consult was thorough! We discussed my hopes/goals, different types of implants, different methods of placement, and I got to try a bunch of implant sizes until I decided on a size I felt the best with. The nurse practitioner made sure to answer all of my questions and made me feel so reassured throughout the whole process. I was then presented with price estimates and payment/financing options. They made my decision to move forward so easy and never made me feel pressured. I am now 5 weeks post-op and could not be happier with my results! Dr. Nuveen was amazing and far exceeded my expectations! He made me feel comfortable from start to finish. He explained things clearly/concisely and made sure to address any questions I had (both pre and post op)! He truly gave me back all of the confidence I’d lost after breastfeeding and I could not be more grateful. 10/10 would recommend ❤️"- J.R. / Google / May 11, 2022
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.
