Would you like to have longer, fuller lashes? Latisse is used to grow your eyelashes, making them longer, thicker, and darker. This will eliminate the need for you to put on coat-after-coat of mascara. Dr. Ryan E. Dodde, II may recommend Latisse to patients from the Holland, Grand Rapids, Muskegon, and surrounding areas.
What is Latisse?
Latisse is the first and the only FDA-approved prescription treatment for hypotrichosis, or having inadequate or not enough eyelashes. Latisse is used to promote the growth of the eyelashes, making them longer, thicker and darker. Latisse helps promote eyelash growth by extending the growth phase and increases the number of hairs that grow. The length of the eyelash, thickness, and darkness all increase with the use of Latisse. Latisse is applied to the upper eyelid in the evening.
Am I a good candidate for Latisse?
Almost anyone can benefit from Latisse to grow thicker, fuller lashes. Exceptions are those people allergic to one of its ingredients. People currently being treated for an eye pressure problem or with risk factors for an eye condition called glaucoma should speak to an eye care specialist before starting Latisse. Latisse is an effective option for those who want to shorten time spent on applying mascara or fake lashes, or those who have a hard time growing longer lashes.
How do I apply Latisse?
Latisse comes in a small bottle with several disposable applicators. Before applying Latisse, make sure you have removed all eye makeup and contact lenses. Before bed, you will apply a few drops of Latisse to a new, clean applicator brush. You will then apply the applicator along the base of the upper lashes. Do not apply Latisse to the lower lashes. As you sleep, Latisse will be distributed to the bottom lashes. Latisse can be applied each night to help you achieve longer, fuller lashes.
What are the results of Latisse?
Results of Latisse are not immediate, as it takes time for your new lashes to grow, just like regular hair growth. With consistent use, you can expect longer lashes in about two months. Once application has stopped, the lashes will return to their normal length.
Are there side effects of Latisse?
Side effects of Latisse are very rare but most commonly include itching and redness of the eyes. Less common side effects include eye darkening and irritation. If these occur, stop the use of Latisse right away.
