Latisse Treatment - Dr. Arash Moradzadeh
Serving Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, Santa Barbara and surrounding areas
Latisse® (bimatoprost ophthalmic solution) is the first FDA-approved prescription treatment for hypotrichosis (inadequate or not enough eyelashes) and can effectively increase the length, thickness and darkness of eyelashes.
Like the hair on one’s head, eyelashes sprout, grow for a while and eventually fall out. Latisse both extends the growth phase and increases the number of hairs that sprout. During clinical studies, improvement is seen in 4-6 weeks and full results appear after 12 to 16 weeks of daily use. Eyelash length can increase by as much as 25 percent; thickness and fullness by as much as 100 percent; and darkness by as much as 18 percent.
Understanding the Procedure
Latisse is applied by dabbing it on the upper lash line each night with the sterile applicators supplied. The drug spreads to the lower lash line automatically as a person blinks. It should never be applied in the eye or onto the lower lid.
According to clinical studies conducted before FDA approval, Latisse is safe for use by most patients. With the exception of those eye problems such as uveitis and conjunctivitis, risk of macular edema, severe allergies or skin infections of the upper eyelids. It should also not be used by pregnant or nursing women.
Dr. Moradzadeh can discuss Latisse in detail and whether or not it makes sense for you, but here are some frequently asked questions about the treatment
Where can I purchase Latisse?
It’s available by prescription only through select physicians, but an appointment is required first.
How soon will I see results?
In clinical trial, the majority of Latisse users saw a significant improvement within two months.
Should I remove my contact lenses first before the treatment?
Yes, it’s a good idea to remove your contact lenses because they can absorb an ingredient in Latisse solution. You can put them back into your eye 15 minutes after application.
What if I forget to apply Latisse?
If you miss a dose, don’t try to “catch up.” Just apply Latisse the next evening and then make the solution part of your evening routine, like brushing your teeth or removing your makeup. Keep in mind that using Latisse more than once a day will not increase the growth of eyelashes any better than daily use.
What should I do if Latisse gets in my eye?
It shouldn’t cause any harm. Don’t rinse your eye. Be careful to keep the tip of the bottle or applicator from touching your fingers, objects, or surfaces to avoid contamination.
What happens if I stop using Latisse?
Your lashes will return to their previous appearance in the course of several months.
Can I continue to wear mascara while using Latisse?
Yes, that’s not a problem.
The experience I had with Dr. Moradzadeh as my surgeon was phenomenal. His unmatched craft coupled with his amazing bedside manner made for a very pleasant experience. Dr. Moradzadeh has gone above and beyond to achieve the absolute best and natural results possible.
One year ago, Dr. Moradzadeh performed a septoplasty/rhinoplasty on me. I was an athlete all through school and broke my nose multiple times while playing softball. After college, I wanted to pursue my modeling career but missed a lot of opportunities because of the external deformity of my nose. I saw a few local Facial Plastic Surgeons but after meeting with them, I never felt comfortable enough to commit. -Marry
For many years, I suffered from severe breathing problems through my nose. I had been delaying any medical procedures to fix the problem because I was uncomfortable with the process, especially the packing typically inserted into the nasal passages and the difficult recovery period. I went to see Dr. Moradzadeh for any alternative solutions. He described a quick, special surgical process that he can perform which alleviates the problem, improves nasal breathing and has no negative side effects. I willingly agreed since my discomfort was only getting worse. After the brief surgery, I immediately noticed the improvement. I haven’t been able to breathe this freely in years...-R.D.
He is amazing! Already recommended to family and My father is going in on Monday. An excellent doctor and so glad I was referred to him. :) His office staff is also on point and very friendly. What an awesome experience.-Diana
Very professional and skilled at administering botox. I highly recommend!
It was interesting to feel my forehead muscles trying to relax, but I took it easy the day I had my face done and although he said that the results show 7 to 10 days after... I noticed my expression lines chilling out 48 hours later. It is nice to have had a good experience and I am pleased thus far with the service.
I was pleasantly surprised at how the office is welcoming and they were even able to get me in sooner, as I was early. Parking is a little tricky, so I took valet across the street and it was about $10 (tip included). The doctor was friendly and gentle, getting the areas that I wanted to target....-Anonymous
