CVS Carries Latisse
Nearly all pharmacies, including CVS, carry Latisse. The cost runs between $100-150 with most places selling it at $120. It requires a prescription. However, I doubt most physicians that write prescriptions or sell it out of their offices require repeat office visits for a prescription unless there has been a side effect. I believe all my patients have asked about it in conjunction with the main reason they consulted me, rather than set up a specific appointment regarding Latisse.
The initial prescription should last two months but after that, a prescription could last about four months since your lashes would have already grown in, and not need daily application.
There is a way to make Latisse last longer. Use your own lash liner or buy a cheap one at the makeup counter. This will soak up less of the product than using the one suplied by Allergan.
The stuff really does work. I keep threatening to take a weed wacker to trim down our aesthetician's lashes!
Latisse at the pharmacy
Latisse can be purchased at most pharmacies. However, it is a prescription drug so you would need a prescription to get it. It is considered cosmetic, so it is not covered by insurance or prescription plans. It usually costs around $120.
