Is There Anything Wrong with Using Latisse™ Over-the-Counter? Beverly Hills, CA

Latisse™ is a safe method for increasing the volume of eyelashes. It’s FDA-approved, meaning it does what it says it does – treat a deficiency of eyelash growth.

Side-effects are few, rare, and not serious.

But despite being a safe and effective eyelash treatment, Latisse™ is not something you should attempt on your own.

You may hear about websites and salons offering Latisse™. It’s tempting to buy it so quickly at discounted rates, but that’s not wise, as we’ll explain.

What about asking for Latisse™ through a general physician?

Caution is in order here, as well. Not all doctors prescribe Latisse™ properly. Some facilities have actually capitalized on the craze by prescribing it right and left via mail-in orders without actually seeing a patient in-person.

Being FDA-approved also means Latisse™ is FDA-regulated. You should not get it without a doctor’s prescription. If the Food and Drug Administration deems a medication not safe to use without a prescription, that doesn’t just mean at-your-own-risk.

It means you need to be cautious about who is supplying the drug. If complications do arise, you need to have a qualified and experienced professional you can visit for assistance. Not all over-the-counter Latisse™ providers give accurate information on the side-effects and results of the product.

We love to see our clients here at Kami Parsa M.D. have beautiful and healthy eyes. We’re happy to help you make enhancements to your natural beauty, but we want to see you do so safely.

That’s why you should only use Latisse™ at the recommendation and direction of how Dr. Kami Parsa prescribes it’s use.

Contact us today to schedule a consultation if you think you’d like to grow more lashes with the help of Latisse™.

Words cannot express how thankful and appreciative I am to have found you. I am deeply grateful for you, for your generosity and caring nature as pertaining to my medical condition. As you know, I was apprehensive about having further surgery, but you are and have been reassuring and confident in the type of procedure you would perform in order to fix my eyelid from the beginning. The fact that you are not pushy and gave me the time and space to make the decision on my own allowed me to prepare myself mentally and emotionally, that really made a difference. Besides from that, your continuous generosity made me confident that you were the right doctor for the task at hand. You will never know how appreciative I am of that. I would also like to let you know how pleased I am with the results of the surgery. I have not felt this comfortable in years. My parents are also very grateful since this was my 14th surgery. You have a true gift. Thank you again for your patience, time, concern, and overall care. I pray that God continues to give you strength to help people who truly need life-changing medical procedures.

Dr. Parsa is an amazing doctor. Warm and very caring. I had my eyes done a couple years ago and I couldn't be happier. Dr. Parsa likes to take the conservative approach which I greatly appreciate in a doctor when it comes to cosmetic surgery. I also go to Dr. Parsa for Botox and he always knows just the right amount. The staff in Dr. Parsa's office are all terrific!
