Latisse® Eyelash Enhancement at Radiance Plastic Surgery
What Is LATISSE®?
LATISSE® is a daily treatment applied to the base of your upper eyelashes for 16 weeks as instructed by your doctor. It actually makes your eyelashes grow longer and thicker in two ways: by increasing the length of the growth phase and by increasing the number of hairs you grow.
What Can I Expect From LATISSE®?
- Real, measurable growth and thicker eyelashes.
- Because LATISSE® works from the inside out, changes in length happen first. Gradually, you’ll notice you have thicker eyelashes.
- Results are gradual, with more length happening in as few as 4 weeks and maximum growth after 16 weeks.
- For best results, you should apply LATISSE® each night, and follow the directions.
- If you stop using LATISSE®, your eyelashes will return to their previous appearance over weeks or months.
- Don’t be tempted to stop early, even if you’re satisfied with your long thick lashes; after week 16, you will see the full effects.

Latisse® Eyelash Enhancement – What Is It?
LATISSE® is an actual growth treatment. In fact, it’s the only FDA and Health Canada-approved treatment clinically proven to grow lashes. Additionally, it’s the only lash growth product of its kind available by prescription.
LATISSE® Grows Lashes Longer, Fuller And Darker
LATISSE® is a once-a-day treatment you apply topically to the base of your upper eyelashes, as instructed by your doctor. Then, gradually, the results come in. You may start to see more length in as little as 4 weeks and you should achieve full growth in 16 weeks. It’s not an illusion of growth. It’s your own eyelashes — only better.
How LATISSE® Works
LATISSE® makes lash growth possible because of its key active ingredient: bimatoprost. Although the precise mechanism of action is unknown, LATISSE® is believed to affect the growth (anagen) phase of the eyelash hair cycle in two ways: first, it increases the length of this phase, and second, it increases the number of hairs in this growth phase.
The History Behind LATISSE®
Although LATISSE® is a treatment for inadequate or not enough eyelashes, it was developed through years of research by Allergan, a leader in pharmaceuticals with expertise in eye and skin care products.

Latisse® Eyelash Enhancement Frequently Asked Questions
Yes. According to data from the FDA, 79 percent of people who use Latisse experience at least one grade increase in Global Eyelash Assessment (GEA) score after using the medication for 20 weeks or longer.
By week 16, people who use Latisse daily experience a 25 percent mean increase in the length of their eyelashes. The increase in thickness is even more pronounced — by week 16, the mean eyelash thickness of people who use Latisse increases by 106 percent.
Latisse also causes a slight increase in the darkness of the eyelashes, although this isn’t quite as intense as its effect on eyelash length and thickness.
Like many other medications, the results of Latisse aren’t instant. Normally, you’ll start to notice some improvements in the length, thickness and darkness of your eyelashes after using Latisse daily for two months.
If you use Latisse every other day, or occasionally forget to use it, it may take slightly longer for the medication to start working. It typically takes three to four months before you’ll see the final results of Latisse.
Latisse is a very easy medication to use. Applying Latisse to your eyelids is a simple process that you can complete using the sterile applicators included with the medication. In all, it only takes a few minutes every day to apply Latisse properly.
Allergan, the manufacturer of Latisse, recommends applying the medication at night, shortly before bed. If you apply Latisse one hour before you plan to go to sleep, the liquid solution will have more than enough time to dry and soak into your skin.
Although Latisse is designed for use at night, it’s okay to use it in the morning to a clean, makeup-free face. Make sure you apply Latisse before applying any cosmetics or skincare products. You should wait at least 15 minutes for Latisse to dry before applying any other products to the skin near your eyes or inserting contact lenses.
Yes. It’s okay to use mascara or other makeup at the same time as you use Latisse. Just make sure you apply Latisse first, then provide at least 15 minutes for it to dry and be fully absorbed by your skin before you apply any other makeup.
If you apply Latisse at night, make sure that you’ve removed all of your makeup and thoroughly cleaned your face before applying the Latisse solution to your eyelids.

I had my hand reattached above the wrist after an industrial accident and have never met such a dedicated and friendlier individual. He must work 20 hours a day. Sask will miss his talents.
I trusted Dr. Laliberte from the moment I met him. He reassured me that he would make my broken and rotated finger perfect again, and he absolutely did!

I was so impressed by him and his detailed and kind approach. He is incredibly knowledgeable and clearly passionate about his work. I highly recommend him!

I just got a breast reduction 4 days ago and I am already so happy with the results. Dr. Laliberte was so helpful and so kind to myself and my mom during this transformation.

He is an amazing man and an even better surgeon!
