Have you always had sparse eyelashes? Do you wish you had fuller, thicker, and darker lashes? Latisse is an innovative FDA-approved treatment that can help you achieve those results in just a few months.
What is Latisse?
Latisse is the first FDA-approved treatment for inadequate or not enough eyelashes. This medical-based eyelash growth serum has proven safety, unlike many over-the-counter products. Latisse is made with a bimatoprost ophthalmic solution of 0.03%. The main ingredient bimatoprost is found in a glaucoma medication called Lumigan. After glaucoma patients noticed their eyelashes were growing thicker and darkening, the rejuvenating abilities of this ingredient were harnessed into the Latisse formula.
Latisse treatment works by prolonging the eyelash growth cycle and increasing the number of hairs grown during each cycle. The result is thicker lashes that create the illusion of eyelash extensions but it’s simply your natural lashes (meaning it’s much safer). Healthy eyelashes not only look beautiful, but they also help to shield your eyes from dust, dirt, and bacteria.
Who is a Good Candidate for Latisse?
Anyone over the age of 18 who is not pregnant or breastfeeding and has healthy eyes is a candidate for Latisse eyelash serum. If you desire fuller, longer, darkened lashes (and to cut down on your morning routine), Latisse may be just right for you. At your consultation, your dermatologist will discuss your medical history to make sure you are not allergic to any ingredients in Latisse.
What to Expect During Latisse Treatments?
Latisse is applied each night in the comfort of your own home. We recommend applying Latisse at night after your makeup has been removed and your face is cleansed. If you wear contacts, these should also be removed prior to the Latisse application. Latisse comes with a small bottle of prescription serum and single-use sterile applicators.
Apply one drop on the applicator and then brush the applicator along the upper lash line. Latisse should only be applied to the upper eyelashes. Once you are finished applying the product on one eye, throw the applicator away and use a new one on the other eyelid.
There is no recovery period after using Latisse. If you wear contact lenses, wait 15 minutes to reinsert them, or wear your glasses for the rest of the night. Patients can expect to see changes in about 4 weeks, but the full effects can take 3-4 months.
