Does any one know what happens when you stop using lattise? Do your lashes go back to the way they were, or do they stay long and thick forever... do you have to continue to use the product for the rest of your life?
Google that and find out.

From what I've read from the Latisse web site. Eyelashes will go back to how they were (unfortunately). For now, I am enjoying my long, full eyelashes (with no side effects). Upside....my insurance IS taking care of 100% of it!!!

No wonder our health insurance rates are so high. They actually pay for this nonsense?
Vanity, pure vanity. Pay for it yourself.

First of all...."chill".....I DID pay for it myself, then when it came time to submit our prescription receipts to insurance for reimbursement, I included my Latisse receipts (and copies of the prescriptions, of course). So I did do what was requested of me in that regard. Also, please understand......after our daughter was born in 1970 I lost the sight in my left eye, apparently that has somehow stunted the growth of my eyelashes on that eyelid. They only grow in 1/2 way across my eyelid and the other 1/2 remained bare (not a good look after applying mascara to "complete" my "look for the day"). If you think having a complete set of eyelashes is "vain", then you best take a poll of women and see if they agree with you. I have had no side effect WHATSOEVER from simply (sparingly) applying this liquid to the lid of one eye at night before going to bed. My opthomologist (of 21 years), after discussing this product with me agreed to let me try it. Does any of that justify having our insurance pay for it. By the way....we pay "BIG TIME" for our insurance every month and use so little of it for claims. Make it a good day.

Years ago I wore "demi" lashes and no one knew. I have deep-set eyes so it wasn't noticeable. I was thinking of trying individual ones again. There is a demo on UTube. When I was down south they were giving perms to eyelashes, guess that helps too. Perms are so hard on your hair, I didn't think it was such a good idea for me. Anyone else try the perm?
I have had a perm on my eyelashes for many years in the UK. It does have to be done by a beauty salon. The results are good and last for about six months. It is usually done along with a tint. I have not as yet found a salon in the US that will do this. Good luck

I would be afraid of the side effects such as possible blindness. I wonder who thought this up, another rat.

More standard insurance policies (fully insured indemnity and fully insured PPO) are moving to exclude this from coverage unless medical necessity is proven. Not sure when it's medically necessary to have eyelashes but if they fell out due to a medical diagnosis i.e. alopecia. I'm sure there will be some language in the policies that cover or exclude. Self Insured policies can choose to cover or not cover. Becuase this is new, the insurance companies have been slow to update their policies. If you have glaucoma and the doctor uses that dx. for the Rx then it will usually be covered. Stay tuned and/or review your policies for coverage or exclusions.

No, this is not a fashion drug. It's a prescription drug called Lumigan. It was just re-marketed as Latisse and FDA approved in Dec. just for eyelash growth. They noticed that people using it were having remarkable eyelash growth. You just apply it like an eyeliner. Google it..very cool. I can't wait to try it. It's for real.
I'm in the medical field too.
Does it work only on the top lashes or will it also get to the bottom lashs too by just applying it to the top?

Yes, but I put it on the bottom lashes every now and again.

FYI: People do use Latisse for lots of reasons. Vanity sure, but my friend lost her eyelashes during chemo and they grew back very thin. This drugs has been great for her. Lumigan is the glaucoma drug that has been renamed as Latisse. It's been around for a long time, so blindness is really something to get alarmed about. I don't think insurance should cover it either... just like it should not cover Viagra, another one of those "vanity" drugs.lol

Yes, they will eventually revert back to their original state.
One 3 ml bottle costs about $110.00. One drop, a very small eyeliner brush, used sparingly will a last about a month.. It took about 4 weeks after daily use, but now I do it approx three time a week. It says it can turn your iris's brown... but haven't really heard of anybody that has happened to.
