Latisse® in Santa Barbara, CA

The eyes are the first facial feature that people notice. Sara Yegiyants, MD, FACS, a triple board-certified plastic surgeon, prescribes Latisse® to women living in and around Santa Barbara, Santa Maria, and Ventura, CA, who want to have longer, thicker eyelashes.

What is Latisse®?

Latisse® is the only FDA-approved prescription treatment to grow eyelashes. It is offered to patients with sparsely growing or brittle eyelashes. It works by boosting the growth of eyelashes during the anagen (growth) phase.

Why Choose Latisse®?

Patients, primarily women, choose Latisse® as it’s the only FDA-approved treatment proven to grow lashes. Latisse® produces thicker, longer eyelashes without the need for false lashes or extensions.

Who is a Good Candidate for Latisse®?

Anyone with sparse or brittle eyelashes and wants to have thicker, darker, longer lashes is a candidate for Latisse®. During a consultation, Dr. Yegiyants determines if Latisse® is the best option to achieve the desired look.

How Does Latisse® Work?

Latisse® is an at-home treatment that is applied at night before bed. Once makeup is removed and the face is cleaned, patients simply use the applicator to apply Latisse® along the upper lash line. Patients receive detailed instructions on applying Latisse®.

When Will I See the Results from Latisse®?

Because Latisse® interacts with eyelashes during the anagen (growth) phase, the process takes some time. Most patients start seeing the results within a few weeks with the full effects of Latisse® after about 12 weeks. It is important to understand that if the treatments are stopped, the eyelashes gradually return to their normal state.

How Much Does Latisse® Cost in Santa Barbara?

Latisse® treatments are different with each patient based on whether other treatments are performed at the same time. We can discuss the costs during the consultation along with payment options. We accept cash, checks and major credit cards, and offer financing through Alphaeon® and CareCredit®.
