If you've always wished you had beautiful thick long eye lashes without having to rely on falsies, glue on extensions, or thick mascara, LATISSE® may be an ideal treatment for you.
In 2008, Allergan, the makers of BOTOX® and Juvederm® created LATISSE®, a prescription eyelash enhancement drug. According to a recent study, patients that used LATISSE® reported 106% thicker, and 18% darker eyelashes with a growth in length of 25% over 16 weeks of application. With a prescription from Dr. Jaime Schwartz, patients simply apply LATISSE® to the upper eyelid at night before bed, and watch LATISSE® add extra charm to their eyes by giving them longer, fuller, and darker lashes.
"I came to Dr. Schwartz for botox to treat vaginismus, and my experience was phenomenal. Vaginismus is pain during any kind of vaginal penetration. After 6 years of pain and frustration, there was finally a solution that could help me. A year after the procedure, I am now able to have painless sex, painless pap smears, and I can use tampons. Not to mention all of the staff was incredibly nice and helped calm my nerves during the experience. This procedure changed my life. Thank you, Dr. Schwartz!"- M. / Healthgrades / Mar 05, 2018
"Well, what can I say... My experience was amazing! Dr. Schwartz did a breast argumentation for me. After having two kids I really felt that I needed it. Everyone in his office is really nice and willing to help! Dawn his assistant is reachable 24/7 which is very important and always answering all the questions. About the surgery.... First of all, I really afraid of all the procedures and doctors, but the whole office staff made my experience amazing from beginning to the end, helped me to relax and enjoy it. The moment I woke up after surgery I've felt perfect. I was really afraid that it will hurt, but guess what I didn't take any pain meds at all! I didn't need it! Yes, there is a little discomfort my mostly because you are wrapped up. The same day I had surgery I was able to work a little bit and play with kids. I felt perfect! I'm almost one week past surgery and can't wait to see the changes! Dr. Schwartz did an amazing job, exactly what I wanted and really natural! I want to thank you him and his office for the amazing experience!"- N.L. / Yelp / Feb 18, 2018

He and the whole team at The Roxbury Institute will ensure that you're healthy and happy throughout the entire process. I'm finally starting to like the skin I'm in and that's only due to Dr. Schwartz!"- A. / Healthgrades / Dec 04, 2017
"Saw Dr. Schwartz for a breast aug after having two kids. A lift was definitely needed, especially on one side but I expressed to Dr. Schwartz that I did not want the lift. It was definitely a challenge and he accepted. They honestly came out better than I ever could’ve expected! They are literally perfect. Him and his team are great. Very thorough and listen to your every need. I went to many consultants before I saw Dr. Schwartz. He’s extremely recommended!"- K.P. / Google / Feb 12, 2018

How LATISSE® Works
LATISSE® (known medically as bimatoprost) is a recreated form of a naturally occurring substance called prostaglandin that is proven to stimulate eyelash growth. By using LATISSE®, two things occur within the growth cycle of an eyelash. First, it increases the length of the growth phase, and second, it multiplies the number of hairs during this same time.
What to Expect
LATISSE® is a topical medication with detailed, easy-to-follow instructions of use. Patients will simply wash their face thoroughly and use the sterile, disposable LATISSE® applicators to apply the medicine to the upper eyelid. Contacts and all eye makeup will need to be removed before application. While the medication is applied only to the upper eyelid, it spreads to the lower eyelid during blinking for a uniform result. Most patients begin to see longer, fuller, and darker lashes in approximately 4 weeks. Patients seeking maximum results should remain on the medication and continue the application routine for a full 16 weeks.
FDA approved in 2008, LATISSE® is a safe treatment for most people to use. Certain individuals who have ongoing eye conditions, severe allergies, skin infections and other eye problems should not use LATISSE®, as well as women who are pregnant and/or nursing. Individuals who do not have the medical and physical conditions mentioned above can use LATISSE® with little risk, although eye irritation, dryness, or redness are possible side effects that can be managed. If you desire longer and thicker eyelashes, discuss LATISSE® with our team to discover if it is a healthy option for you.

Does LATISSE® Change Eye Color
This is a common misconception. In extremely rare instances there has been a change in eye color when the glaucoma medication that is used in LATISSE® was applied directly to the cornea. However, in studies done with LATISSE®, there were no reports of change in eye color.
What is Hypotrichosis?
LATISSE® is a treatment for hypotrichosis, the scientific term for inadequate or not enough eyelashes.
