Everyone wants long, thick lashes. Unfortunately, they aren’t always easy to come by. Your options are limited: you can use messy, fake eyelashes or eyelash extensions, both of which take time and money to upkeep. What if there was an easier way to improve your lashes? We have good news: there is. At Premier Dermatology and Mohs Surgery of Atlanta in Alpharetta, GA, we offer Latisse, a popular and effective prescription-only eyelash growth treatment that can help you get beautiful lashes, naturally.
How Can You Make Your Eyelashes Grow?
If you have naturally thin or short eyelashes, Latisse can change the lashes you were born with into the lashes of your dreams. By applying this treatment each night, you will see an increase in the thickness and the length of your lashes within weeks. This treatment is prescription only so you can’t get it just anywhere. However, the good news is we can get it into your hands as soon as possible.
All About Latisse
Many people aren’t aware that this eyelash treatment was discovered by accident. A medication that was used to treat those suffering from glaucoma had a safe yet unexpected side effect that increased the length and thickness of the eyelashes of those using it.
This unexpected side effect led to the birth of Latisse, a treatment that has changed and improved the eyelashes of millions of people. It is a prescription medication that can make your eyelashes grow safely and quickly.
How Does It Work?
This effective eyelash treatment works in two different ways. Since eyelashes can grow more than one eyelash per follicle, this treatment capitalizes on that fact by increasing the number of lashes that grow out of each follicle.
It also makes your eyelashes grow longer, so not only do you get more thickness, but you get more length. When it comes to eyelashes, length and thickness really are the best of both worlds.
How To Apply It
The application is simple. All you have to do is apply the treatment to your upper eyelashes each night the same way you would apply liquid eyeliner. If you wear contact lenses, you just need to make sure that your contacts are out before application. The best approach to take, if you do wear contacts, is to simply apply the serum each night after you take your contacts out before bed.
You don’t need to worry about applying it to your lower lashes because it will transfer from your top lash line to your lower when you shut your eyes. If you need to re-insert your contacts after the application, just wait 15 minutes before you do so.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect?
Those who have used this treatment have experienced amazing results. If you’ve heard a lot of good things about Latisse and are wondering how many of them are true, we can tell you that all of them are. This treatment can give you 25% longer eyelashes, 18% darker eyelashes, and 106% thicker and fuller eyelashes. That’s better than anything you can get over the counter.
How Soon Can I Expect Results?
Hair growth takes time, and that’s true of eyelashes as well as the hair on your head. Once you begin using this treatment, you will first begin to see changes in your eyelash length and then you will notice them getting thicker as the weeks go by. You will enjoy an improvement in your lashes after eight weeks of treatment, and even if you are happy with how your lashes look, you need to continue using the treatment each night until you reach 16 weeks.
It is at week 16 that you will see your best and final results. At that point, you can discuss with one of our experts whether or not you should continue treatment.
How Long Do Results Last?
The results will last as long as you continue to use the treatment. If you discontinue use, once your eyelashes go through a typical shedding cycle, they will simply begin to grow the same way that they did pre-treatment. Using the treatment consistently will help you maintain your long lashes.
Who Is It Right For?
Virtually anyone who has thinner and shorter eyelashes than they would like is a candidate for this treatment. If you’re unsure as to whether or not Latisse is right for you, you can visit our office to consult with one of our experts to determine whether or not you are a candidate for this prescription eyelash growth treatment. Those who should avoid this treatment include:
- Those who are currently experiencing conjunctivitis

Those who have eye problems including uveitis or are at risk for macular edema
