Although your eyelashes are often an afterthought when it comes to rejuvenating your facial features, having thin lashes can take attention away from your eye area. At Fine Arts Skin & Laser, our FDA-approved LATISSE® treatments can create fuller, longer, darker lashes, and subtly enhance your eye area without any invasive or surgical treatments.
Who Is A Candidate For LATISSE®?
Anyone who has thin eyelashes and wants to achieve longer, fuller lashes is a candidate for LATISSE. However, there are a few conditions that a candidate must meet, including:
- Being in good overall health
- Getting a prescription from a qualified professional like Dr. Hartman
- Having realistic expectations about your results
- Don't have any pre-existing eye conditions
- Aren't pregnant or lactating
LATISSE is a prescription medication, and during your consultation at Fine Arts Skin & Laser, we will ask you about your medical history to avoid any complications and ensure the best results possible.
What is LATISSE®?
Having thin eyelashes is a common condition, and many people resort to wearing false lashes or applying makeup every day to make them appear fuller, darker, and longer. LATISSE® is a prescription solution that stimulates your natural lash growth without any messy adhesives or makeup smudges.
How Does LATISSE® Work?
LATISSE® is prescribed at our Dover office but is applied at home as part of your regular nightly routine. It is a user-friendly, safe process that includes multiple steps:
- Before use, be sure to cleanse your face of any makeup and remove contact lenses for best results
- Remove a sterile applicator from its tray and hold it horizontally. Apply a single drop of LATISSE® solution to the area closest to the tip but not directly on the tip
- Draw the applicator slowly along the upper lash line, moving from the inner part of the lashes to the outside. Do not apply to the lower eyelashes
- Blot any excess solution with a tissue
- Dispose of the applicator and remove the second applicator from the tray for the other eye, repeating the above steps

"Wonderful people to work with. I had a tummy tuck about a month ago my results are more than I could have ever hoped for. Any thing I chose to have done in the future I will go to Fine Arts for."- T.M. / Google / Mar 15, 2023
"I just want to take a moment to express my gratitude for the life-changing treatment I received from all of the wonderful people at this clinic. I had a mommy makeover in August '22 with a tummy tuck, 360 liposuction of my torso and arms, and fat transfer to my breasts. I've NEVER felt better. Dr. Hartman is very skilled, and I thank him every day when I look in the mirror! The procedure was super tolerable and even fun at times. The only super uncomfortable part for me was during the skin removal from my abdomen. But all the staff in the room, especially Allana, made me feel safe and taken care of during those rougher moments, and I will never forget that. My recovery has been great and I appreciate the aftercare this clinic provides immensely! Julie is fantastic. I feel like she is an old friend, and I trust her expertise completely. I don't have experience with any other plastic surgery office, but I feel like the ongoing treatment I've recieved post-operatively like laser on my scar, lymphatic massage, and more (at no additional charge) is what makes this place unique and the best! I'm so happy I found this place and these people when I did. I would do this over and over again! I'm achieving my health and fitness goals and, most importantly, I'm healing my mindset and self image. Surgery is never the whole answer to body image issues so many people face, but there is no shame in using it as one tool to empower yourself to grow and heal and evolve into a better version of you. I feel so privileged to have been able to experience this. 💜"- R.J. / Google / Mar 13, 2023
How Long Should I Use LATISSE®?
Although many patients begin to see visible results in length after four weeks and darkness after about eight weeks, patients should continue treatment for the recommended 16 weeks to achieve optimal results. After 16 weeks, it is important to remember that once treatment with LATISSE® is stopped, your eyelashes will gradually return to their normal state.
Is LATISSE® Safe?
This effective, clinically proven eyelash treatment has a high rate of patient satisfaction and typically has no adverse side effects when applied correctly and carefully. Our medical team can review the treatment steps with you to ensure that you achieve fuller, longer, darker lashes with minimal risk of side effects.
