I plan to buy my sister Latisse bcuz she's been wanting it but I was wondering if I could buy it sort of over the counter so she would not have to see my doctor at all. Is it possible for me to buy Latisse for someone and that person not having to see any doctor at all? Or does the use of it need to be monitored? I would really like for her just to be able to get it easily herself, maybe online or something, and eliminate the middle man of a doctor completely. Could she get Latisse like that?
Can I Use Latisse Without Continuous Dermatologist Appointments?

Latisse Without Seeing A Physician
Latisse cannot be obtained without a prescription at this time. So getting it as a gift for someone is difficult.
Latisse as a Gift
Your sister will need to see a physician to determine if she can use Latisse since it is a prescription drug. I would suggest buying her a gift certificate in the amount of the Latisse kit and once she is seen in consultation if she's not a candidate then she can use the gift certificate for something else.
Latisse for the lashes with a prescription
The FDA has restricted the sale of Latisse to those with a prescription. Since the product is being used around the eyes, it is prudent to follow the recommendations of the FDA. Its not worth cutting corners. Surgery90210

In my office you will need to be seen by me before we prescribe Latisse
Latisse and doctor appointments
In my office we don't require an office visit with me to purchase Latisse. It does happen that most people will be coming in for a visit when they buy an additional kit or two, but it's not required. However, dispensing will depend upon each physician's office's policies as well as each state's requirements for prescription dispensing.
