Latisse®

Latisse Layton Utah

Latisse was originally developed as a medication used for elevated pressure in the eye. The medication was effective, but a side-effect of the medication was excessive eyelash growth. This “side-effect” was further studied. Direct application of the medication to the lashes was found to be very effective at producing longer and fuller lashes.

How is the medication applied?
The medication is applied to brushes provided in the package. The brushes are then used to apply the medication to the upper eyelid lash line only. The lower lid lashes will also grow with Latisse use, as the medication transfers from the upper to the lower lash line.
Are there risks to using Latisse?
The most widely published complication with using Latisse is discoloration of the iris, usually brown streaks appearing in persons with blue eyes. When this occurs, it can be permanent. While this complication was seen during use of this medication for glaucoma, it has not been seen with application to the eyelashes only. Common side-effects include itching and redness of the eyelid. This risk of discoloration, pigmentation and infection are all possible, but are rarely seen.
How long does it take for the lashes to grow?
Growth usually starts about 2 weeks after using the medication and gradually gets fuller and thicker. As long as the medication is used, the lashes will continue to thicken and lengthen. Once the medication use is stopped, the lashes will return to the pre-treatment length.
How much does the medication cost?
Please contact our office for price and first-time patient discount information.
Does insurance cover Latisse?
No

Dr. Bitner is an authorized distributor of Latisse. An appointment must be scheduled in order to purchase Latisse.

With sadness, I wanted to personally let you know that we have made the decision to suspend seeing patients at Bitner Facial Plastic Surgery and Utah Hair restoration.

Despite efforts over the past week and a half to decrease traffic and increase the frequency of office sanitation, it has become abundantly clear that for your health and safety and that of my office staff and our families the responsible thing to do is to temporarily stop seeing patients.

If you have had surgery with me and have any concerns, you have my cell phone number, please contact me anytime. Text messaging is best.

We will continue to offer virtual consultations for those wanting to plan for when life is back to normal. Some of my office staff will still be working from home and can be contacted through our contact form on our website or at [email protected] We will try to check voicemail messages periodically but, for the quickest response, an email will be best.

These are very difficult and scary times. I love my practice and love taking care of so many incredible people. However, using precious and limited medical supplies at this time seems irresponsible. We pray for your health and safety and look forward to when we can take care of you again, soon!
