We all want long, lush, beautiful eyelashes. Who wouldn’t?! Everywhere we look, we see makeup ads and Instagram models promoting products such as mascara, eyelash curlers, and even glued-on fake lashes. And some of those products work fairly well… For one day. But they aren’t perfect, and they continue to require daily attention in order to maintain the look you want.
Luckily, there is an alternative. We have an FDA-approved prescription treatment that can work wonders to grow your eyelashes longer, darker, and more full. It’s called Latisse, and it’s actually a bit of an accidental medical breakthrough.
What is Latisse?
Latisse was originally formulated as a topical treatment for glaucoma! Patients – using the prescription to treat their glaucoma – noticed that their eyelashes were growing longer and more lush than ever. It was quite the accidental discovery, but it led to Latisse being used for treatment of hypotrichosis, a very complicated name for sparse eyelashes. Now, of course, Latisse has been FDA-approved for cosmetic treatments. If you want longer, fuller eyelashes, Latisse will do the job.
How does Latisse work?
Unlike mascara and other products, Latisse doesn’t just provide the appearance of more lush eyelashes. Your lashes will actually grow longer, darker, and thicker. Latisse affects the actual growth cycle of your lashes, increasing the length of the growing phase, and increase the actual number of hairs that grow.
How do I use Latisse?
With a prescription from our physician, you will apply the Latisse solution to your upper eyelashes each evening. You will apply it in a similar manner to putting on liquid eyeliner, so it’s quick, simple, and painless. Within about four weeks, you will notice a visible difference in your lash length, color, and thickness. Full results will be reached after about sixteen weeks. Most patients report a significant and dramatic difference in their eyelashes after a few months of nightly applications with Latisse.
