For years, mascara, false eyelashes, and eyelash extensions have been staples for Bloomington, Illinois, women who wanted to give their eyes a boost with longer, thicker lashes. Although these options could yield visible results, they were only temporary, and their applications could be time-consuming and tedious. Dr. Jeffrey S. Poulter is pleased to offer LATISSE, an FDA-approved, topical eyelash product to patients who want to put the mascara wand down and have longer, more beautiful lashes of their very own.

If you would like to learn more about LATISSE or any of the other aesthetic services we offer, request a consultation online. You can also call Dr. Poulter’s office at (309) 663-1222 or Toll Free (888) 841-4108, and one of our helpful staff members will assist you.

How Does It Work?

Made by Allergan, the same trusted company behind BOTOX® Cosmetic and JUVÉDERM® injectable gel, LATISSE is a topical solution that encourages the growth of fuller, longer, darker eyelashes.

Whether you’ve lost some lash volume as the result of aging or you’ve always had thin or short lashes, LATISSE may be appropriate for you. The product is easy to use, and you can purchase it from Dr. Poulter’s office and apply it every night before bed. Using the sterile applicator, simply dab along your upper lash line, blotting away any excess solution.

Common Questions

Who is a good candidate?

LATISSE is appropriate for most people who would like their eyelashes to be longer and thicker, although people with certain medical conditions should not use it. These conditions include allergies to any of LATISSE’s ingredients, glaucoma, or a history of eye pressure problems. Dr. Poulter will review your medical history help you decide whether LATISSE is appropriate for you.

Are there any potential side effects?

As with any medication, LATISSE does carry some risk of side effects. Although uncommon, some users reported eye itchiness or redness. Less commonly, it can cause darkening of the nearby skin or darkening of the eye’s iris. These effects are all rare. LATISSE was approved by the FDA in 2008, and its safety has been proven and well documented.

How long do I have to use LATISSE before I see results?

Some users report noticeable results after just 4 weeks of use, but full results are usually achieved after 16 weeks of continual use.
