Can I get Latisse from my family doctor, or do I have to go to a doctor with a certain specialty?
Can Any Type of Doctor Prescribe Latisse?
Doctor Answers (20)
The short answer is yes, however I would recommend that you have a consultation with a board certified surgeon who is familiar with Latisse. Latisse is not recommended in patients with eye pressure problems without close observation by your physician. You can visit the Latisse web site to locate a board certified doctor in your area.
All physicians can prescribe Latisse
Any physician can prescribe Latisse; however, not all physicians will be familiar with its indications, use and contraindications. You should try and seek a board certified plastic surgeon, dermatologist or oculoplastic surgoen/ophthalmologist. You can also go to latisse.com to find a provider near you.
Yes any Dr. can prescribe Latisse. However Latisse has only been FDA approved for the past 2 years hence it is recommended that you seek a consultation from a Dr. who is Board certified and understands and is able to properly explain with confidence how the product works.

License to prescribe Latisse
Yes, but I would go to an ophthalmologist, since Latisse is just rebranded Lumigan, which is a glaucoma drop, that's side-effect is lash growth, so eye MDs have a DECADE of experience with Lumigan, whereas every other type of MD (like a dermatologist) will only have TWO years experience with Latisse (since it only got approved by FDA 2 years ago)
Latisse can be purchased on line
Latisse can be purchased from any state in the US with free shipping by going to TheWebDermatologist.com or by following the link below and filling out a short medical history form. It is an extremely safe medication to use. Over two million prescriptions for Latisse have now been filled with no confirmed reports of iris pigmentation issues. Less than 4 percent of people experienced redness, irritation and itching of the upper eyelid which was reversible upon discontinuation.
Doctors who provided Latisse
Latisse can be obtained from any licensed physician. However, I recommend one obtain the medication from a physician with experience in cosmetic surgery. A board certified plastic surgeon can likely recommend additional procedures to further enhance one's overall appearance.

Any Type of Doctor Can Prescribe Latisse
Any Md can prescribe Latisse. You will find a good and broad range....from Ophthalmologists (Eye Doctors) to Plastic Surgeons, Dermatologists and onwards. As long as the MD you go to has experience with the product then you should be fine.
Latisse can be prescribed or purchased from any M.D.
Latisse can be purchased from any M.D. You do not need to have eye tests done so there is no need to see an Ophthalmologist, unless you are concerned you might have glaucoma or begin to have any unusual side effects, which is extremely rare. I have dispensed over 3000 Latisse/Lumigan bottles and have never seen any side effects other an occasional irritation, and that has been reported by less than 1% of my patients.

Latisse Prescribed By Any Provider
Yes, Latisse can be prescribed by any provider.
It does benefit the patient if the office has experience with the product and dispenses the product to the patient.
Typically physician offices cost substantially less than pharmacy for the product and also will have promotions from the manufacturer which can make the cost less substantial. For example, most pharmacys sell Latisse for around $120. In our office, Latisse costs $200 with an additional $20 back (limited promotion from manufacturer) for 2 boxes of latisse with an informed provider teaching proper application of product and guidance throughout its use.
