Latisse® is a prescription treatment for hypotrichosis, more commonly known as inadequate eyelashes. This treatment can lengthen, thicken, and darken the eyelashes significantly. Studies indicate that this treatment can thicken lashes by 106%, lengthen lashes by 25%, and darken lashes by 18% during a 16 week treatment period.
Who is a Candidate for Latisse?
Women who are unhappy with the length, thickness, or darkness of their eyelashes may be good candidates for treatment with this product. Patients must have an overall good eye and skin health to use this product safely. Pregnant women and breastfeeding moms should not use Latisse.
The Benefits of Latisse
Latisse can greatly enhance a person's natural lashes. Many people who use this product consistently enjoy the type of lashes that they would never have been able to achieve previously without the use of false lashes and a great deal of mascara.
Latisse treatment is done on a daily basis at home. Patients should completely clean their face and remove contact lenses before using the sterile Latisse applicators to apply the product the lash line on the top lids. The product doesn't need to be applied to the bottom eyelids because enough of it is transferred to those lashes as a person blinks. This routine should be continued every day for the full 16 week treatment period.
Results: What to Expect
Most people start to notice a lengthening, thickening, and darkening of the lashes in around a month. To get the optimal results, the daily application must be continued for the full course of treatment. If patients choose to discontinue treatment at that time, the lashes will gradually return to their previous state.
