Is It Possible to Buy Latisse Applicators Separately?

I have a prescription for Bimatoprost (Lumigan), can I just buy the special applicators needed?

Latisse applicator brushes come with in the Latisse kit upon purchase. I have never seen any other way to buy the brushes seperately.

Extra Latisse Brushes
I have only seen Latisse brushes available when you buy Latisse. Being a guy, I don't know too much about mascara brushes, but I have an inordinate number of very creative female patients(and employees!) who have figured out other brushes without having to buy more product.
The only way to get the actual Allergan Latisse applicators is to purchase more Latisse. The problem with using an alternative is that the applicators are designed to hold only a certain amount of the Latisse with each application.
Using an alternative applicator may result in using the product too quickly or causing other side effects like darkening of the skin around the eye.
Latisse brushes only come with Latisse
Latisse brushes only come with Latisse. Latisse brushes are an FDA approved device that is made to deliver a very specific amount of medication. Each bottle comes with 60 brushes which are intended to each be used for one eyelid and then thrown away.
I have found that a clean eyeliner brush works very well. However, this is not an FDA approved method.
Hope this is helpful.
