Latisse is a great product that increases the length and volume of your eyelashes. Latisse is an FDA-approved, prescription medication that has been safely used by millions of women since 2008. In fact, it’s the only prescription product of its kind available. Latisse has become a very popular product in our Knoxville dermatology practice.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
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:
- It increases the duration of the growth phase
- 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.
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 really was impressed with Dr. Wright. He is extremely knowledgeable and I really recommend him as a fine Dermatologist.
Dr. Rahman is wonderful. She is very professional, knowledgeable and kind. She takes time to listen. She handled my problem right away. I had been very concerned about it.
What a great experience! I was greeted promptly and courteously by the front desk staff. I was seen almost immediately and treated with care and concern by both Devon and Dr. Wright. I will certainly make KID my home for dermatology and would highly recommend them to everyone.
Dr. Adam Wright took his time to explain the procedure, perform the surgery, and teach how to care for wound afterwards. I have found few physicians take such time with their patients and I am a registered nurse.
I was very pleased with the efficiency of the staff who handed me some forms, then directed me upstairs where I barely sat down before I was escorted to the exam room. Dr. Wright came in a few minutes later and got down to business in a most pleasant and professional manner. Thank you.
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.
Knox Institute of Dermatology is the best! Dr. Adam Wright has always been very courteous and knowledgeable of my care.
Lindsey Best, NP is a great listener and she is sensitive to my daughter’s questions and concerns. Her acne is getting better! Thank you!
I saw the NP. She was personable, informative and skilled in taking care of my problem. I recommend her and will ask for her if I have need to go again.
Awesome doctor, awesome staff. Definitely would recommend this office to all my friends. Also, my husband is a patient and my daughters will have appointments soon.
Dr. Rahman and her nurse were very friendly, professional, and spent an appropriate amount of time with me. I have some benign lesions that I want to have removed at some time in the future and I will return to Knox Institute of Dermatology.
We had a great experience with Dr Anderson, she was great with my 10 year old son, minimal wait times. Lovely office and staff!
Dr. Elizabeth Anderson is very thorough, knowledgeable, listens, explains the best treatments, and gives options for care.
I had an overall satisfying experience as usual. Short wait time, attractive and clean facilities, courteous and professional yet welcoming staff. Dr. Rahman was thorough and treatment options were well explained.
Dr. Anderson has been my dermatologist for several years, and I continue to be impressed with her dedication, caring attitude, and professionalism. The staff are always friendly and helpful.
I was called back promptly. Dr. Rahman was careful to make sure I was not experiencing any pain during the procedure.. The staff was friendly, yet very professional; clearly describing follow-up procedures I needed to perform. My insurance initially rejected a prescribed mediation, but the staff worked tirelessly and was successful in getting them to reverse their decision.
Friendly and excellent service! Love the staff, always up beat and happy. Comfortable with staff knowledge and skills. Just a great experience if there is such a thing when visiting a Dr.
Dr. Wright was very caring, answered questions in a way I could understand, listened to what I had to say. I especially appreciate that he doesn’t prescribe medications without careful thought and trying alternatives first.
Dr. Anderson is a knowledgeable, compassionate, and caring doctor. Her nurse, Lori, was equally sensitive to my concerns and she showed the utmost respect and dignity during my medical treatment.
They have a very nice and knowledgeable staff. I didn’t have to wait long, and they did a great job of explaining the process and options to me. I highly recommend this practice!
