Latisse Atlanta

Eyelash Enhancement and Restoration in Atlanta

Long, Full Eyebrows Without Surgery

When it comes to eyelash trends, long is the way to go, but what if you’ve lost eyelashes overtime as a part of the aging process? Maybe you’ve looked at expensive eyelash transplant surgeries as an option, but felt there had to be a better way.

At Vortex Wellness, we use a prescription medication called Latisse to grow your eyelashes without any surgery. We apply Latisse in the safest, most painless way possible. Here’s more information about what Latisse can do for you!

What is Latisse?

Latisse (or Bimatoprost) is an eyelash enhancement prescription medication and the only one of its kind approved by the FDA to treat hypotrichosis. It’s also used to treat ocular hypertension and glaucoma, though we primarily use the medication to increase the length and number of eyelashes.

How Latisse Works

Latisse works by increasing the time length and anagen phase in which eyelashes grow, similar to how hair growth products work. We apply Latisse to the top portion of where your lashes grow. As you blink, the medication spreads to the rest of the area. Continue applying Latisse daily for about two months, and you should start seeing results.

Is Latisse Safe?

As long as you follow these specific instructions, Latisse is safe and approved for growing eyelashes. Specifically, you must make sure your face is clean before applying Latisse, and then remove any makeup and contact lenses.

If there are any excess amounts of Latisse, use a tissue to remove it and then throw away the applicator.

Be careful and don’t apply Latisse to the lower eye lid under any circumstances. Also, if you start seeing results, don’t reduce your dose or stop treatments altogether. Continue with the treatments for 16 weeks before stopping.

What Are the Side Effects?

If you experience any of these side effects while taking Latisse, let one of our doctors know right away.

· Darkened, brown eyes

· Red eyes

· Itchiness and swelling

· Eyelid skin darkening

Most of these side effects are temporary, but the darkened, brown eyes might be irreversible. Discontinuing use of Latisse will likely resolve the other side effects you might experience if they are serious enough.

Latisse FAQ

If you have any questions about Latisse, please visit our FAQ page where we answer some of the most common questions, like the following:


What are the other possible side-effects of Latisse®?

A clinical trial of LATISSE® was conducted on patients who applied the product to the base of their upper lashes only. Applied nightly, the transfer of LATISSE® solution from the upper to lower eyelid may occur naturally because the eyelids are closed and the eyelashes touch each other. Over application may increase the chance of experiencing side effects. To ensure safety and maximize effectiveness, please follow the directions provided.

What should I do if I experience eye itching?

Eye itching may occur immediately after use, but should usually last only for a short period of time (one to two weeks during initial use). Eye itching alone is not an allergic reaction and doesn’t mean that your eyes are being harmed. Consult your healthcare professional if the itching persists or you notice other symptoms as well.
