Latisse in Melbourne, FL

Castellon, MD, offers Latisse® and other MedSpa services for men and women who live in Melbourne, Brevard County and the surrounding communities of Central Florida.
What is Latisse®?
Latisse® is a prescription-strength product that is clinically proven to grow longer, fuller eyelashes. The active ingredient in Latisse® (bimatoprost) has long been used for treating glaucoma. Patients noticed that the eye treatment unexpectedly made their eyelashes grow longer. The makers of Latisse® recognized the need for a product that improved the eyelashes and received FDA-approval to release the product for public use.
Benefits of Latisse®
Unlike other options for improving your eyelashes, Latisse® helps grow your natural eyelashes. You use the product at home by following a very simple process.
Who is the Ideal Candidate for Latisse®?
You may not be a candidate for Latisse® treatments if you have:
- Active or chronic eye infections
- Certain medical conditions or take specific types of medications
- An underlying medical condition that causes eyelash loss and thinning
How is Latisse® Different from Other Options for Longer Eyelashes?
Mascara and eyelash extensions are the most common forms of eyelash enhancement. Mascara is expensive and messy and does not actually lengthen the eyelashes. Eyelash extensions are costly as well, and the adhesive may not stick to your skin properly. You may find yourself with only one set of eyelashes as you go through your day, and this can be a very embarrassing experience.
What Should I Expect When I Use Latisse®?
The bottle of Latisse® has a special applicator on the cap that is used to apply the liquid to the base of your upper eyelashes. You apply Latisse® at bedtime, and you do not need to apply the liquid to the lower eyelashes.
How Long Does It Take to See Results from Latisse®?
Most patients see a significant improvement in 16 weeks. When your eyelashes reach the maximum length, you must continue to use Latisse® to maintain your longer eyelashes.
How Much Does Latisse® Cost in Melbourne?
Latisse® is not covered by insurance, so you are responsible for the cost of treatment. We will provide a detailed cost after your consultation appointment. Castellon Plastic Surgery Center accepts payment by cash and check as well as credit card, including MasterCard® and Visa®. If you are interested in financing the cost of your treatment with Latisse®, we encourage you to apply with CareCredit® and LendingUSA.com.
