Latisse® Tampa

Latisse TampaLatisse® is a prescription medication that was approved by the FDA in 2009 to treat the medical condition of inadequate eyelashes, known as hypotrichosis.

Latisse has been clinically proven to lengthen, thicken and darken eyelashes. Manufactured by the same company that produces Botox, Latisse shares an active ingredient with Lumigan, a glaucoma treatment.

The eyelash growth potential of this ingredient was first noticed in Lumigan patients and adjusted for a specific focus on eyelash growth.

When to Consider Latisse

Ideal candidates are healthy individuals who are self-conscious about their eyelash length, or those who consistently purchase false lashes. It may benefit you by:

  • Darkening the lashes
  • Lengthening the lashes
  • Thickening the lashes

Taking certain medications or having a history of some medical conditions may decrease the effectiveness of Latisse. Allergies, skin infections, pregnancies and other diseases may prevent you from taking it.


What are the steps of Latisse?

It is dabbed along the upper eyelids once a day. Sterile applicators must be used, and are included in the product packaging. Alternative applicators should not be used, and old applicators should not be reused.

What are the results of Latisse?

Clinical testing has shown a variety of benefits including a 25 percent increase in eyelash length, an 18 percent increase in eyelash darkness, and a remarkable 106 percent increase in lash fullness and thickness.

How long do results last?

Results begin to show in as little as eight weeks, and may reach their full improvement after about 16 weeks. Results are not permanent, and must be maintained with consistent application. If it is not administered every other day, as instructed, the eyelashes will return to their normal appearance.

Are there any possible complications with Latisse?

Very rarely, it may cause additional side effects including darkening of eyelid skin or pupils. It may also cause red or itchy eyes and skin hyperpigmentation. All of these risks will be discussed in depth during the consultation process.

I love Tampa Palms Plastic Surgery ~ Dr. Moseillo, Mary, Nancy & Paula. I had breast cancer and reconstruction with Dr. Moseillo several years ago and knew I would never let anyone perform surgery on me other than him. I decided I wanted to do an Upper Blepharoplasty (upper eyelid surgery). I had the surgery a few months ago, am now at my summer home in Maine and everyone is commenting on how great I look. They have no idea that I had anything done! I keep hearing, “you have amazing eyes”. I am so thrilled with the results, feel 10 years younger and if you’re thinking about this procedure, or any other for that matter, do not hesitate to go to Tampa Palms

Dr. Mosiello, plain and simply put , is the BEST ! I did a lot of research and he was the one I chose and am very thankful and grateful that I did, as I had consulted with other plastic surgeons from other cancer centers. Dr. Mosiello surpassed in every area. He and his staff truly care and are warm, friendly, compassionate and knowledgeable. Which takes the stress out of any pre surgery or procedure. Knowing you have the best surgeon in your corner is the most important part. Post surgical procedures look amazing and he has saved my life, and has made me whole again. Look no further, he IS the best.

I came to Dr. Mosiello’s practice as a reluctant patient who had just been given the diagnosis of breast cancer. I have been in several doctors’ office’s during my diagnosis and treatment and Dr. Mosiello’s office is my favorite. He is a very kind, competent surgeon who patiently answered questions and explained things fully. I was given clear post op directions and checked on by the nurse before my first post op visit and someone was always available if I had a question or concern. His staff is amazing! Melissa, Paula, Mary and Carol are all very personable and caring. This is also an office where I did not wait long periods of time to be seen. Things run smoothly and timely. I would highly recommend Dr. Mosiello to anyone in need of a plastic surgeon.
