Not only do eyelashes create a beautiful frame to your eyes, they also provide protection, deflect floating particles, and redirect perspiration. Latisse® is the only FDA approved solution for the treatment of hypotrichosis, a medical condition for insufficient eyelash growth. Latisse® is a prescription strength solution discovered by the scientists at Allergan, the makers of Botox® Cosmetic, to help thicken, lengthen, and darken upper eyelashes over an extended period of time to enhance their appearance.
Women are thrilled with this non-invasive technique with no need for pills, injections, or surgery. The result is longer, fuller, darker eyelashes that won’t run or smudge--even when swimming, exercising, or getting teary eyed. Latisse® ophthalmic solution is composed of bimatoprost, which is designed to increase both the number and length of upper eyelashes with daily, topical application. By prescribing Latisse®, we’re able to decrease your dependence on mascara and other eyelash enhancements.
Latisse® is applied once daily to the upper eyelids along the lash line using a disposable brush applicator. Before applying, make sure your face is clean and makeup free. The solution should not be applied to the lower lashes. Some patients may experience minor side effects such as irritation, redness, itching and darkening of the skin in the treatment area. In addition, some patient with certain medical conditions and allergies may not be good candidates for Latisse®. Patients will begin to see results in about four weeks, and full effects should be seen in approximately sixteen weeks. Frequency of application can be reduced once optimal results are reached. Once Latisse® is completely stopped, however, the eyelashes will slowly revert to their original size.
