Are you disappointed that your eyelashes have gotten thinner and more sparse with age? Have you always had naturally thin lashes? Unfortunately, this is a common occurrence. Trying different mascaras or dealing with the hassle of false lashes are the solutions most people look to for longer lashes. They can be a pain and not even work. Fortunately, there’s an FDA-approved prescription treatment that does. It’s called Latisse®, and it can help you to achieve long, beautiful eyelashes naturally.
Latisse® is approved by the FDA for the growth of thinning or not enough lashes. It’s available only by prescription and comes in topical solution form. Hypotrichosis is the medical term for lack of lash growth. The active ingredient in Latisse® is bimatoprost, used originally to treat eye conditions such as glaucoma. Patients soon realized that their eyelashes were becoming fuller and longer. Soon, research began in the use of bimatoprost for lash enhancement, and Latisse® was developed.
How It Works
Latisse® is a topical solution, meaning it is applied to the skin. We will advise you regarding its use. Typically, it is recommended that patients use the provided sterile, disposable applicators to apply a drop of the solution to the base of the lashes on the upper eyelid each evening before bed. Usually, the full period of sixteen weeks is prescribed for optimal results to occur.
Are You a Candidate?
Not everyone is a good candidate to receive Latisse®. That’s why it’s available only through prescription. You’ll need to schedule a consultation. Side effects are possible, but generally temporary. Even so, it’s important to learn everything about the treatment before deciding it’s right for you.
If you’ve been hoping for thicker, longer and darker lashes, Latisse® could be the right option for you. It’s convenient and grows your own natural lashes without the hassle of dealing with other methods like fake eyelashes.
