FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How does Latisse work?2017-07-19T20:20:01-04:00

Latisse is a once-a-day product that you apply yourself to the base of your upper lashes. Latisse is believed to affect the growth phase of your eyelashes in two ways:

  1. It increases the duration of the growth phase
  2. It increases the number of eyelashes in the growth phase

What to Expect

Longer, fuller, darker eyelashes don’t occur overnight. Latisse affects the growth of your eyelashes, so the effects are gradual, but striking. After starting Latisse, you need to continue to use it as directed every night for best results. And remember, if you stop using Latisse your eyelashes will gradually return to their original appearance. Most patients first notice an increase in the length of their eyelashes. Then, over time, your lashes will also become thicker and darker. You may start to notice results within a few weeks, but your best results won’t be seen until 16 weeks, so don’t stop early.

What’s behind the research of Latisse?2017-10-17T20:34:07-04:00

The Latisse clinical trial examined 278 participants in 16 cities. Participants were given either Latisse solution or a placebo. Neither the participants nor their physicians knew which treatment they were receiving, so the trial was a “double-blind”, placebo-controlled trial, the gold standard of clinical trials. The participants were followed for four months. During the 16-week trial, participants were photographed and evaluated every four weeks. Investigators studied the length, fullness, and thickness of participants’ lashes. At the end of the trial, the results showed that Latisse improved lash length, fullness and thickness in 78% of patients.

WHAT OUR PATIENTS SAY

I have already recommended Dr Raman to a friend. The timeliness getting an appointment, the Covid safe setting, the efficiency of the staff along with the expertise of the doctor are reasons I will return and refer.

M. H.

I had a recurring dermatological condition for several and a series of dermatologists as a result. And yet until I met Dr. Wright, my condition remained undiagnosed and it turned out to be potentially life-threatening. I am so fortunate to have found him and I would not go to anyone else and recommend him often.

D. B.

Timely, professional, thorough and took the time to explain the procedure being done and options for upcoming needed procedure. Steps were taken to protect employees and patients against Covid challenges. I had basil cell removed three times and in different states. This office is the best hands down.

S. J.

This office is very clean, professional and I never have to wait excessive time for my appointment. Dr. Rahman is so thorough and caring and kind. I have had Mohs surgery with Dr. Wright on my face and you cannot even see where the scar is. This is the place to go for your dermatology needs.

C. P.

I’ll be 77 years old in a month and this was my first real skin check-up. I sort of had one a few years ago at a different place but was turned off by their emphasis on selling cosmetic treatments when I wanted to know about skin disease. Dr. Bakke and his assistant seemed to give me a thorough check, burned off some spots, took.a few biopsies, and I was good to go.

R. G.

Everyone is so nice and friendly…the office staff is caring, professional and an asset to your institution. Even though I’ve been going to your office for a few years this is the first time I saw Kegan Reilly. He was very professional and very knowledgeable. He explained everything to me in detail and made me very comfortable in an uncomfortable situation. I highly recommend him for anyone who needs to see a dermatologist. He is definitely an exceptional medical provider.

D. S.

I will be forever grateful to Dr. Anderson for her careful skin exam and detection of the start of a melanoma on my arm. She is pleasant, professional, and kind– everything you would want in a dermatologist.

E. T.

Dr. Anderson and her staff are excellent. I have been a client for several years. I have received the best care. Dr. Anderson is excellent in discovering and treating. problems. Dr. Anderson listens and is honest.

M. J.

The whole experience was a positive one… getting an appointment to see someone relatively soon, receiving several reminders, the (covid) health protections at the office, and the very pleasant and knowledgeable care of Lindsey Best FNP, at my appointment.

P. P.

Sent email & text to inform of arrival procedures, took proper covid-19 protocol to ensure my safety and that of staff and other patients. Doctor and nurse took time to explain what would happen during visit and answered all questions. Explained proper home care of procedure site, made sure I knew how and informed to call office if any problems or questions. Everyone was very helpful, friendly and professional.
