Luscious Lashes with Latisse

For some, long and full lashes come naturally. For others, achieving that look can be a struggle with endless mascara applications and false lashes that never seem to look quite right. Going to any length to enhance and magnify our lashes to make them look full-bodied, dark, and long. Enter Latisse, a revolutionary product that promotes natural eyelash growth, offering a solution for those seeking fuller, darker, and longer lashes.

 

Introducing Latisse

Latisse is the only FDA-approved prescription product designed to enhance eyelashes. Applied topically to the upper lash line, Latisse works by increasing the growth phase of eyelash hair follicles, resulting in longer, thicker lashes that don’t fall out as quickly.

 

How Does Latisse Work?

Originally developed for treating glaucoma, Latisse’s active ingredient was found to have the unexpected side effect of promoting longer, thicker eyelashes. By extending the lash cycle, Latisse stimulates eyelash growth, providing noticeable results in as little as 4 to 8 weeks, with ideal results seen around 16 weeks.

 

Before and After Latisse

Individual results may vary, with differences in length, thickness, and pigmentation (darkening) of the lashes. Application is simple and should be done on clean, dry skin once a day using the provided applicator brushes. Latisse is not intended for use on the lower lashes. Lashes will return to pre-treatment length after several weeks or months, once use of Latisse is stopped. 

 

What to Expect with Latisse

While side effects are minimal, they can include dryness, redness, itching, or discomfort. These usually resolve after discontinuing use. To maximize results and minimize side effects, follow the application instructions carefully and consult your healthcare professional with any concerns. Latisse is a prescription serum, speak to your healthcare professional about your concerns, other prescription medications you are on or any allergies you have.

 

Side Effects with Latisse

Side effects are minimal but can occur as with any product use. Some of the side effects of using Latisse go away after you stop using the product for several weeks to months:

    • Dryness

    • Red eyes

    • Itching or watery eyes

    • Eye discomfort

    • Hair growth, if applied anywhere other than on the upper lashes.

    • Can cause brown discoloration of the coloured part of the eye

     

    To increase the effects of Latisse, get the best results, and prevent side effects:

      • Use provided applicators only once to prevent eye infections.

      • Remove contact lenses and make-up before applying. You can put your contacts in after 15 minutes.

      • Use Latisse as part of your nighttime care routine and leave it overnight. 

      • Do not let the dropper touch any surface.

      • Do not apply in the eye or on any other part of the eye. It works best at the root of the upper lashes. 

      • Blot excess solution. 

      • Discuss any queries or concerns with your eye doctor before starting any treatment. 

       

      Latisse may not be for everyone. For example, those with sensitive skin may experience some irritation or allergic reactions to the ingredients if they are not careful how they apply the serum or use it properly. Pregnant women or women who are nursing should wait before they begin treatment. Also, people with other eye ailments should first talk to their optometrist to see whether they are a good candidate for Latisse. 

       

      With consistent use, almost anyone can achieve the lashes they’ve always wanted. Once you’ve achieved your desired results, speak to your optometrist about maintaining your prescription for long-lasting lash enhancement.
