SEE THE EXPERT FOR EYELASH ENHANCEMENT
As the premier cosmetic eyelid specialist, Dr. Deborah Sherman offers an effective topical treatment for making eyelashes longer, thicker and darker.

EYELASHES CHANGE WITH AGE
Especially after 35 years of age, studies show it is not uncommon for your eyelashes to become too short and thin. If you have noticed your lashes are too short, thin or sparse, a topical treatment known as Latisse can grow your own lashes longer, thicker, and darker.
Latisse is the only treatment clinically proven to grow eyelashes that’s approved by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration.
While results from this treatment vary, most can expect noticeably longer and thicker eyelashes within 16 weeks. Some begin seeing results in the first 8 weeks, but again, results vary between people.
Check out this set of before & after photos below to see how Latisse eyelash treatment helps patients accomplish their goals of fuller, longer eyelashes.
Applying Latisse is relatively easy, but something you need to do each night before going to bed. If you are interested in using Latisse, you must first consult with the Sherman Aesthetic Center where you can obtain a complimentary EYELASH ANALYSIS to see if Latisse is right for you. Remember, Dr. Sherman, a Board-certified eyelid specialist, has the knowledge to ensure if it’s safe for you to use this product.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is Latisse?
Latisse is an FDA approved prescription eyelash solution which is applied along the lash margin to help lashes grow. It increases the growth phase of the eyelashes which allows them to grow thicker and longer.
How does Latisse work?
Latisse is believed to affect the growth (anagen) phase of the eyelash hair cycle in two ways: first, it increases the length of this phase; and second, it increases the number of hairs in this growth phase. The exact way it works is unknown.
How do I apply Latisse?
Latisse solution is a once-a-day treatment you apply yourself each evening to the base of the upper eyelashes. Obtain the full “How to Apply” instructions when you visit the Sherman Aesthetic Center.
How soon will I see results?
Latisse users may start to see longer lashes at 4 weeks, with full growth at 16 weeks. The growth is gradual over time.
How long do I have to use Latisse?
Once the desired length of your eyelashes is achieved, you must stay on the Latisse to maintain these results. We recommend decreasing the frequency of application for maintenance treatment.
Could Latisse solution cause the color of my eyes to change?
Increased brown iris pigmentation has occurred when the same formulation of bimatoprost ophthalmic solution (the active ingredient of Latisse) was instilled directly into the eye to treat elevated intraocular pressure. Although iris pigmentation was not reported in clinical studies with Latisse, patients should be advised about the potential for increased brown iris pigmentation which is likely permanent.
Can it harm my eyesight?
Latisse is an ophthalmic solution. If any solution gets into the eye, it is not expected to cause harm. You do not need to rinse your eyes. Latisse is not an eye drop. DO NOT APPLY in your eye or to the lower lid.
If I apply more Latisse, will I get faster results?
No. Use of Latisse more than once a day will not increase the growth of eyelashes. Latisse works gradually over the 16-week treatment period.
Since Latisse is relatively new, should I wait before using it?
Latisse received its FDA approval in December 2008, after a team of 16 experienced doctors from all over the country conducted clinical studies.
Could it darken my eyelids?
Skin hyperpigmention (or skin darkening) is a less common side effect, which typically occurs close to where the solution is applied on the skin. This side effect has been reported to be reversible in most patients upon discontinuation of Latisse.
How is Latisse different from over-the-counter products for lash growth?
Latisse is the first and only FDA-approved prescription treatment for inadequate or not enough lashes, growing them longer, fuller and darker.
What happens if I stop using Latisse?
If you stop using Latisse, your eyelashes are expected to return to their previous appearance over several weeks to months.
How do I maintain my results?
To achieve the full effect of Latisse, you will need to use the product daily for 16 weeks. After that point, it is best to come and be evaluated so we can discuss about its ongoing use after evaluating the health of your eyes with our slit lamp biomicroscope.
Are there many Latisse users?
Yes. In its first year alone, approximately 1.5 million bottles of Latisse were prescribed.
What are the possible side effects of Latisse?
The most common side effects after using Latisse solution are an itching sensation in the eyes and/or eye redness. This was reported in approximately 4% of patients. Latisse solution may cause other less common side effects which typically occur on the skin close to where Latisse is applied, or in the eyes. These include skin darkening, eye irritation, dryness of the eyes, and redness of the eyelids.
