All our procedures, services and products at the Robert Zubowski MD Center for Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, carry a “safety first” philosophy. We counsel Latisse patients that they should not use it if they have been diagnosed with or are taking medication for eye pressure problems, or have glaucoma risk factors. If they are taking prescription eye pressure lowering products or have a history of such problems, they can still use Latisse, in some instances, but only under close monitoring by a doctor. We instruct patients on how to properly use Latisse. Once you stop using Latisse your eyelashes will revert to their former appearance over a period of several weeks to months.
I can’t stress how important it is to obtain your Latisse by prescription from a recognized center for cosmetic enhancement such as ours. According to a recent New York Times article, web sites are now selling Latisse as well as some salons with few or no questions asked of purchasers. As with any of our procedures and products, we fully discuss possible risks, complications, and cautions with our patients prior to them moving forward. Should any problems or concerns arise, we are always here to help.
