You can have eyelashes that are fuller, longer, and darker, with Latisse!
Studies show that over time, length, fullness, and pigmentation of eyelashes diminishes. Latisse is the first and only medication approved by the FDA to treat inadequate or skimpy eyelashes (a condition medically called hypotrichosis). It has been available by prescription since January 2009. Approximately 550,000 patients have used Latisse to improve the appearance of their eyelashes. The medication is safe and effective.
Have you already had Botox treatment to improve the appearance of facial lines? Or considered dermal fillers for wrinkles and dark circles around the eyes? Then maybe it is time to enhance your eyelashes, too.
For every purchase of Latisse that you make at Miami Skin & Vein, you are rewarded with Brilliant Distinctions points. You may use these points toward future Juvederm, Botox, or Voluma treatments, as well!

How to correctly apply Latisse:

- Dispose of the applicator after one use.
- Follow steps one through six for the other eye.
