Latisse is the first and only FDA-approved prescription treatment for hypotrichosis, which is when you have inadequate or not enough eyelashes.
Why get Latisse treatments?
Almost anyone can benefit from Latisse to grow longer, thicker, fuller, darker lashes. With this treatment, you may no longer need to apply several coats of mascara to get the appearance you desire. Plus, since it’s easy to apply, this treatment can be easily worked into your daily routine.
How do Latisse treatments work?
Latisse helps promote eyelash growth by extending the growth phase of your eyelashes and increasing the number of hairs that grow.
Latisse comes in a small bottle with several disposable applicators. Before you apply Latisse, make sure to remove all eye makeup and your contact lenses. Before bed, you’ll apply a few drops of Latisse to a new, clean applicator brush. Then, apply the applicator along the base of the upper lashes.
Do not apply Latisse to your lower lashes. As you sleep, Latisse will be distributed to the bottom lashes naturally.
You can apply Latisse each night to help you achieve longer, fuller lashes.
Latisse Results and Recovery
The results of Latisse are not immediate, since it takes time for your new lashes to grow. With consistent use, you can expect longer lashes in about two months. Once you stop applying Latisse, your lashes will return to their normal length.
Side effects are very rare, but they most commonly include itching and redness of the eyes. Less common side effects include eye darkening and irritation. If you experience any of these, stop using Latisse.
Who makes a good Latisse candidate?
You may be a Latisse candidate if you have the following traits:
- You are in reasonably good health
- You do not smoke
- You are emotionally stable
- You want longer, thicker, fuller, darker eyelashes
