At Cosmetic & Plastic Surgery of Central Pennsylvania in Camp Hill, PA, Dr. Theodore T. Foley offers Latisse to individuals who wish to enhance their eyelashes. Latisse is an FDA-approved medication that promotes fuller, longer eyelashes. The topical medication should be applied to the upper eyelid once a day for several months. This medication should not be used on the lower eyelid. It’s important to follow the prescribed instructions provided by board-certified Plastic Surgeon Dr. Foley and to discuss any questions or concerns you may have about Latisse during your consultation. Latisse is a great alternative to surgical lash implants and offers stunning results.

When eyelashes are especially short, sparse or appear to be missing, these could be signs of a medical condition known as hypotrichosis. This is when a person doesn’t have an adequate amount of eyelashes. Latisse is meant to grow lashes that look fuller, longer and darker naturally to help patients regain confidence. Patients with this condition should consult with a physician to see if Latisse is right for them. We invite you to call our office today and learn more about this product and how it could help you.
How Latisse Works
Latisse is classified as a bimatoprost eye solution which is similar to a prostaglandin, a natural chemical found in the body. Prostaglandin is responsible for things such as controlling cell growth and regulating hormones. Doctors aren’t entirely sure how Latisse works or why it’s so effective, but some believe it has to do with the growth cycle of eyelashes. Just like hair found on the head, eyelashes go through stages of rest and growth. Doctors have observed that Latisse is responsible for keeping lashes in the growth stage for longer and for helping to transition lashes from the inactive to active growth phase. If a patient stops using Latisse, lashes will gradually return to normal.
"Best plastic surgeon in the area! After exploring several options, I chose Dr. Foley because he was very qualified and knowledgeable. He was caring, professional and did a great job. He talked me through the procedure step by step. His staff was amazing and caring as well. He made sure I was pain free the entire time and put me at ease. I would highly recommend him to anyone seeking plastic surgery."- Anonymous / Office Visit / Jun 28, 2017
"I had a great experience last year when I had a cosmetic procedure, so when I needed to have a skin cancer removed from my lower leg I went to Dr. Foley. He clearly communicated what I'd experience during the surgery and asked throughout the procedure whether I was comfortable. It eliminated the anxiety I had felt about the procedure. He promptly followed up with me on the results of the biopsy. I have complete confidence in his talent and his genuine personal concern for the patient."- S.B. / Healthgrades / Dec 05, 2018
"Really great and kind surgeon!"- Anonymous / Healthgrades / Sep 16, 2018
"Dr. Foley is an Excellent Surgeon - I could not have hoped for a better outcome! Dr. Foley is very precise and highly skilled. My biggest regret is I didn’t come talk to him sooner. My boobs now look like they belong in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit edition!"- L. / RealSelf / Sep 13, 2018
"I am so grateful to have the good fortune to end up in Dr. Foley's very good hands. I had undergone breast reconstruction with a different plastic surgeon 10 years ago and had a disappointing cosmetic outcome. I disliked feeling vain and insufficiently grateful for the help that I got, and was reluctant to seek another surgeon's help. I am so glad that I did. Dr. Foley is very kind and sensitive and collaborative, and so very skilled and invested in an optimal outcome for his patients."- C.H. / Healthgrades / Aug 21, 2018
What to Expect
Though Latisse is easy to apply, a patient must follow all instructions carefully. A patient must wash hands and face prior to application. The face should be makeup-free and contacts should be removed. Contacts can be put back in 15 minutes after application. Latisse should be applied evenly across the upper eyelid. Provided applicators should be thrown away after each use to keep the medication sterile. Patients should note that Latisse is not recommended to be used on bottom lashes. Full results should be achieved in about 4 months but most patients see an improvement in 3-4 weeks. It is possible that a patient may not obtain the same results on both sets of lashes.
The most common side effects are itchy or red eyes. Less common side effects can include a darkening or redness of the eyelid, eye dryness or eye irritation. If a patient discontinues the use of Latisse, eyelid darkening should be reversed in a few weeks up to a few months. In very rare cases, eye trauma could occur and a patient should seek medical attention immediately.
