Advantages Of Latisse
Just about all of us are not naturally gifted with luxuriously thick lashes. But some people have even thinner, lighter eyelashes than the rest of us. The great thing about Latisse is that just about anyone who wants more glamorous lashes is a good candidate.
Advantages of Latisse include:
- Enhances length, thickness and darkness of your eyelashes
- Latisse does not run or smudge like mascara
- Latisse does not have to be washed off like mascara
- Completely reversible if you wish to return your eyelashes to how they were before
Latisse must be applied daily. It stops working when you stop applying it. But with regular use, it is highly effective: In one study, after a single application of Latisse daily for 16 weeks, 78 percent of patients saw a significant enhancement in the thickness, length and color of their eyelashes.
Are There Any Side Effects?
It is possible to experience one or more of the following side effects:
- Itching near the eyes
- Eye redness
- Dry eye
- Skin darkening
- Eyelid redness
If you experience these side effects, you should discontinue use of the solution and call our office.
This drug must be prescribed to you by a physician. It has been approved by the FDA and Health Canada as safe and effective for eyelash enhancement. Interestingly, the medication was first used to lower eye pressure in glaucoma patients. In the years following, it was discovered that bimatoprost ophthalmic solution – basically the same thing as the glaucoma drug – could lengthen and thicken eyelashes.
