“Longer, Fuller and Darker Eyelashes,” for real
Here is one of the most exciting beauty advances to come to Knoxville since… well since, Botox. The company that brought us Botox and the fantastic filler, Juvederm, has just received FDA approval for a product that makes eyelashes grow “longer, thicker and darker.” Available only through physicians, Latisse is a once-daily prescription treatment applied to the base of the upper eyelashes with a sterile, single-use-per-eye disposable applicator. Latisse users can expect to experience longer, fuller, and darker eyelashes in as little as eight weeks, with full results in 16 weeks.

$170 .5ml

*Because LATISSE is a prescription product, we’ll need to schedule a very brief consultation with Dr. Reath or Dr. Walker to go over the usage and safety information with you. Scroll down to see safety information and tips for success.

Our office frequently receives letters and emails from our patients. This is one from a patient who lost her eyelashes during chemotherapy for breast cancer.

“I first heard about Latisse while undergoing reconstruction after being diagnosed with Breast Cancer. I had completed my chemotherapy and was completely without either upper or lower eyelashes. After using Latisse for only 3 1/2 weeks, my lashes had already grown enough to use a little mascara! I’ve been using Latisse for a little more than two months now, and my eyelashes are as long and thick as they were before the chemotherapy. This is really a great product!”

The Interesting Story Behind Latisse

People go to great lengths to make their eyelashes look longer and fuller. Mascara, false eyelashes, and even lash extensions are quite common in the quest for lush-looking lashes. Imagine the excitement when Allergan discovered a way to make those dreams come true entirely by accident! What started as a clinical trial for a known glaucoma treatment turned out to have a highly desired side-effect – significantly longer eyelashes. In a popular Truth-O-Meter Tuesday video, Dr. Reath tells all.


Here’s the background: when the glaucoma eyedrop known as Lumigan entered its third phase of clinical studies, Allergan researchers noticed the drug’s eyelash-enhancing effects, and the company soon started considering the cosmetic applications that could be derived from its active ingredient, bimatoprost. Applied directly to the base of the lashes, Latisse keeps hairs in their growth phase, producing longer, darker and thicker eyelashes. It contains a much smaller amount of bimatoprost than Lumigan, as it is intended for daily use.

Many medical breakthroughs have been made similarly. Alexander Fleming’s unexpected discovery of penicillin is the most famous example. Fleming was researching the flu and noticed that mold was growing in one of his Petri dishes. Upon closer inspection, he realized that the area with the mold had no bacteria and proceeded to develop our very first antibiotic.

A more recent accidental breakthrough is Viagra. Most people don’t realize that Viagra was originally intended as a cardiovascular drug. Early in the clinical trials, scientists at Pfizer realized that it was not effective in treating heart ailments. Still, they decided to continue to study one of the drug’s unexpected side effects. Incidentally, for years Botox was used as a treatment for nerve spasms around the eye and vocal chords before its famous wrinkle-reducing properties became apparent.

Patient Comments-Real Latisse users from the clinical study share their stories:

  • “While pregnant with my second child at 23, I went through a lot of stress, and as a result, I began to lose my eyelashes … to the point where I literally had none! My eyes looked weird. It was embarrassing. I never realized the value of my eyelashes until they were gone. To make up for the loss, I started wearing false eyelashes all the time, which wasn’t always convenient. But I kept wearing them … for decades! I’d pretty much given up hope of ever having eyelashes again. Then, at age 61, I was asked to participate in a clinical study for eyelash growth by my doctor. He didn’t make any promises, but I was hopeful. The results were amazing! Finally, my lashes grew back thick and long! I was so excited. Now I have beautiful long eyelashes.”- Jeannie
  • “I’ve always had thin, short lashes. They were barely noticeable. Within the first month, my lashes started to grow, and, within two months, they looked even better. My favorite part is that the product is so easy to use.”- Hope
  • “After using the product, my eyelashes really stand out. I get compliments all the time, and it feels great! Everyone wants to know my secret … People even ask if I am wearing false eyelashes. I feel more confident knowing this product, unlike other lash growth products on the market, is FDA-approved and comes from Allergan, a name I trust. I will absolutely tell all of my friends (and anyone who asks) about this new lash growth product.” – Lisa
  • “My eyelashes got so long, the tips of my lashes hit the lenses in my sunglasses!”- Jolynn
