This amazing medicated serum can help you to grow thicker, fuller lashes in no time! Treatment is easy and results are significant, and women around the world, including celebrities, can vouch for its effectiveness. Read on to learn more about this treatment option.
What is Latisse?
Latisse is a treatment made up of the medication bimatoprost, which is approved by the FDA to treat inadequate eyelashes. It works by extending the growth phase of your lashes and increases the number of hairs that sprout. A prescription is required for Latisse treatments, so a visit to our office is needed in order to start using this product.
Latisse offers amazing results, and after 16 weeks patients can see:
· Eyelash length increase of 25%.
· Eyelash darkness increase of 18%.
· Eyelash fullness and thickness increase by 106%.
Before applying Latisse, patients should remove any makeup and remove their contact lenses. The solution should be regularly applied along the lash line of the upper eye with the included applicators. This encourages the gradual growth of thicker, longer, and darker eyelashes. Do not apply Latisse to the lower lid, as it may cause unwanted hair growth in the area. For the best results, be sure to use Latisse daily for at least two months. Thicker lashes will remain as long as the treatment is continued.
As with any type of medication, Latisse does come with some side effects. These include:
- Darkening of the eyelids, which resolves with possible discontinuation of Latisse.
- Itchy or red eye.
- Darkening of the iris.
Candidates for Latisse
If you are 18 or older and are unhappy with thin eyelashes and wish to achieve fuller, darker lashes, Latisse may be a good match for you. Thin or sparse lashes may be caused by a number of factors, including genetics, medical conditions that cause hair loss, or chemotherapy, to name a few. A consultation appointment at our office is needed to determine if you are a good candidate for this treatment. Individuals who are allergic to one or more of the ingredients of Latisse, who are under care for glaucoma, or who have active eye disease should not use Latisse.
