Long, full eyelashes have pretty much always been a standard of feminine beauty; so it’s little wonder that we’ll do almost anything to enhance our natural lashes. Unfortunately, some of the popular methods of doing so can be unhealthy or even dangerous.
We offer a safe, effective, and medically approved way to grow your fantasy lashes, and it’s called Latisse.
Latisse is a prescription eyelash treatment that stimulates your eyelashes’ natural growth cycle to produce longer, fuller, and darker eyelashes.
Latisse actually began as a glaucoma medication, but then doctors started to notice their patients were growing beautiful, thick eyelashes. Since Latisse started out as a medical treatment, you can trust that it’s safe to use and won’t damage your eyes or endanger your vision when used properly.
Want to try Latisse for yourself? Book an appointment today.
Your eyelashes have a natural growth cycle. In that time, they sprout, grow, stay static, and eventually fall out. Latisse extends this growth cycle, lengthening the growth stage so they become longer and thicker. It also stimulates actual lash growth, causing more lashes to sprout than normally would.
Latisse typically produces visible results within 2 months of regular use.
Latisse comes in a small bottle with a number of disposable applicators. Use the applicator to dab Latisse onto your lash line at the very base of the eyelid. As you blink, the solution will spread; coating your lashes.
It’s important that you throw out each applicator after use and do not reuse them. This could cause infection or other complications. Latisse does need to be used continuously for ongoing results; if you stop using Latisse, your lashes will eventually return to normal.
It’s best to use Latisse at night before bed time. You’ll need to take off all your makeup and remove your contacts before you start the application. Never apply Latisse directly in your eye or to your bottom lashes; the solution will coat your bottom lashes as you blink. You should also apply it carefully, as Latisse may increase hair growth on any skin with which it makes contact.
Because Latisse is a medical treatment, it requires a prescription. Our optometrists will happily answer your questions, address any concerns you have, and examine your eyes to make sure you’re a good candidate for Latisse. If you’d like to try Latisse, book an appointment with us today.
