Benefits of LATISSE®
If you want to have your eyelashes look as though you have eyelash extensions, then this is the product for you.
Originally, LATISSE® was designed to help patients suffering from glaucoma. During its use for glaucoma, patients and their doctors noticed significant eyelash growth. LATISSE® was born thereafter and is now used as a prescription to treat those suffering from decreased numbers of eyelashes.
The eyelashes on the eyes are similar to hair on the head. They grow and fall out; LATISSE® works to increase the length of time the eyelashes grow, and also works to increase the total number of eyelashes grown during the growth phase. LATISSE® is the only treatment for inadequate eyelashes that has been approved by the FDA. This means there is no other competition on the market and LATISSE® is really a one-of-a-kind product to fix the length and number of eyelashes.
LATISSE® takes natural eyelashes and enhances them, helping them to look their best. Many patients report seeing their eyelashes getting thicker and longer but also darker. Results, on average, are seen around the 12-week mark, but many have reported seeing results as early as 8 weeks into the treatment. By the end of treatment, patients have reported that the thickness has increased by 100% and their lashes were also 25% longer. Those who use LATISSE® for the full 16 weeks, recommended by dermatologists, see the best and longest lasting results.
LATISSE® is very easy to use. Before applying, make sure all makeup is removed. One drop of LATISSE® is all you need to brush on to the upper eyelid and eyelashes using the applicator provided. Any excess of the product can be wiped away and after the initial treatment phase LATISSE® will only need to be applied 2-3 times a week. It is not recommended to use it for the bottom eyelashes because it can cause unwanted hair growth in other areas around the bottom eyelid. The liquid will travel down to the lower eyelashes on its own.
If constant worry about your eyelashes is something you experience, you may be the perfect candidate for LATISSE®. Anyone can benefit from using this product, but it is especially beneficial to those who may be embarrassed or self-conscious about their eyelashes, and spend a significant amount of time using false eyelashes in their daily lives. Each patient is different and it’s important to discuss with your doctor if LATISSE® is a good treatment option for you and your eyelashes, as it does require a prescription.
