How much does Latisse Eyelash Grower Cost?

How much does Latisse Eyelash Grower Cost? | Beverly Hills Medical SpaPeople with insufficient eyelashes can benefit from Latisse eyelash grower, which is an FDA approved medspa procedure designed to create longer, thicker and darker eyelashes. Latisse is only available by prescription, and patients should receive the treatment only from a qualified provider.
During the initial consultation, the treatment provider will assess whether the patient is a suitable candidate for this treatment. They will explain how the procedure can be safely performed at home, and inform the estimated costs of the complete treatment. The patient can make a well-considered choice after they have understood the costs and potential benefits of Latisse.   
Patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and other cities and communities in this part of the southwest have an opportunity to receive Latisse treatment and other non-surgical cosmetic procedures from Motykie medical spa.
 

Affordable Monthly Cost

Most patients find Latisse to be a fairly affordable eye cosmetic procedure by many people. A Latisse kit includes one bottle of the medication and 30 pairs of applicators. The Latisse kit can be used for one month as the patient needs to apply it once daily. The patient must use one applicator for one eye and discard it after use.
To achieve optimal results, the patient will be required to continuously follow the treatment for about four months. In other words, a patient will require a minimum of four Latisse eyelash grower kits to achieve best outcomes. The medspa treatment provider should make the patient aware that if they stop treatment at some point, the effect will start waning.
Patients who wish to enjoy extended aesthetic benefits of Latisse should be ready to use the treatment in the long-term under the supervision of a qualified expert. They should evaluate their monthly budget for the procedure and plan their treatment appropriately.
In some cases, if the patient purchases Latisse kits for several months at a time for long term use, the provider may be able to give them some rebate. If the treatment is combined with other cosmetic procedures at the same medspa, the patient may be able to get a special package offer.
The ideal way to procure Latisse kits and learn about its application is by consulting with a well-established medical spa. The golden and noteworthy Motykie medical spa led by board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie, receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and nearby areas for Latisse.
 

Financial Factors

Location of the Practice
Major metropolitan areas and prime urban locations have a higher cost of living, which impacts the cost of most types of goods and services, including cosmetic services such as Latisse.
 
Quality Standards and Facilities
The price tag may slightly vary between a medical spa that offers a state of the art treatment environment and personalized care and service and another with lower standards of care.
 

Extent of Treatment

The overall dollar amount of Latisse will depend on how long the patient continues to receive the treatment. In any case, the patient can pay for the treatment on a monthly basis, which is a convenient payment option for many patients.

ISAPS Writes About the Procedures to Get Rid Of Bat-Wing (Arm Fat) Arms for Good

ISAPS Get Rid Of Bat-Wing Arm FatThe International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery writes:
You know those areas of stubborn fat that just won’t go away, no matter what we try? You can go on a diet, you can exercise until you fall over, but those areas just don’t budge. Your “area” could be your love handles, or inner thighs, or (for many who are starting to get a little older or have lost a great deal of weight), under the arms. These pockets of fat under the arms have given rise to the description “bat-wing” arms, because the fat tends to hang down underneath the upper arms.

What is Latisse?

What is Latisse? | Beverly Hills Medical Spa | West HollywoodLatisse is an innovative and effective product that is designed to promote the growth of eyelashes. Latisse is applied to the upper eyelashes every night to create darker, fuller, and longer eyelashes with continued usage. Most patients will achieve optimal outcomes within four months.
Latisse medspa treatment is simple and non-invasive, and does not involve the typical risks or downtime usually associated with an invasive cosmetic procedure. However, it is crucial to determine the patient’s candidacy for Latisse treatment, and a follow-up is required in the short term to ensure that the patient is responding successfully to the treatment.
Latisse treatment has been approved by the FDA since 2008 to address hypotrichosis, which is another name for the condition of insufficient eyelashes. Motykie medical spa, led by board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie, provides Latisse treatment to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding locations.
 

FDA Approved

The fantastic and proven treatment of Latisse is the first FDA approved scientifically proven treatment to improve the appearance of eyelashes. It helps achieve natural enhancement in the darkness, thickness and length of eyelashes. The treatment should be received only through a doctor as a once-daily prescription treatment. The patient can perform the treatment conveniently at home as recommended by the medspa treatment provider.
Latisse should be applied to the base of the upper eyelashes with a sterile, disposable applicator. Patients will be able to notice results in as little as two months. It is necessary to continue the treatment in order to maintain the results. If the patient discontinues the treatment at any point of time, the eyelashes will return to their previous condition over the next few weeks.
 

Caution

It is paramount to choose a qualified and trained provider when seeking Latisse treatment because it involves the delicate eye area. An experienced Latisse provider will carefully instruct and advise the patient that Latisse solution must be used only on skin of the upper eyelid margins at the base of the eyelashes. The treatment must not be applied on the lower eyelids.
Patients with a history of abnormal intraocular pressure (IOP) should use Latisse only under the professional monitoring of a doctor. The treatment may cause darkening of the eyelid skin in some cases. However, this condition is usually reversible. The treatment may also result in higher brown pigmentation of the colored part of the eye, but this has not been reported in clinical studies.
 

How to Use Latisse?

The patient should first wash hands and face thoroughly before applying Latisse. They should remove any makeup and contact lenses. The patient should place just one drop of the medication on the applicator and then swiftly draw it carefully across the skin of the upper eyelid margin at the base of the eyelashes.
The application can go from the inner part of the lash line to the outer part. Any excess solution beyond the eyelid margin should be blotted. The patient should use a new applicator for the other upper eyelid and repeat the procedure. The fantastic and committed Motykie medical spa receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and other suburbs and neighborhoods in this section of The Golden State for Latisse treatment.

What's trending in breast augmentationCall it the Kardashian effect: Today, everyone wants to talk about butt lifts, injectables, implants, and of course, dermal fillers and Botox.
