What Is Latisse®?
Latisse® is the only FDA-approved treatment proven to safely and effectively grow longer and fuller lashes. The eyelash growth experienced with Latisse® is long-lasting with continued use, and Latisse® is only available with a prescription. Latisse® was FDA-approved in 2008, and it has been used by many residents of Southington, Connecticut, since. Patients love the improved length and fullness of their natural lashes after using Latisse®, and some even report a darker shade on the eyelash growth.
Individual results may vary.
How Does Latisse® Work?
The active ingredient in Latisse® is bimatoprost, which was originally used as an eye drop to treat pressure inside the eye. During clinical trials, many patients experienced incredible eyelash growth as a side effect, which led Allergan to further study bimatoprost and develop it as a prescription treatment for people desiring longer, fuller eyelashes. The exact way Latisse® works is unknown; however, many experts speculate that it lengthens the growth phase of the eyelashes while also increasing the number of hairs that are grown.
What to Expect After Latisse®
In most cases, our Southington, CT patients apply Latisse® on their own at home. It needs to be carefully brushed onto the base of the upper eyelashes every evening in order for eyelash growth to occur. Latisse® should never be used on the bottom eyelashes, and the application needs to be precise for optimal results.
With daily use, most of our Southington, Connecticut, patients report noticeable eyelash growth within a month. After four months of consistent use, the full effects of Latisse® can be seen, and the eyelash growth with remain as long as Latisse® is used. If Latisse® use is ceased, the results will fade over the next few months and the patient’s eyelashes will go back to the way they looked before the Latisse® treatment.
Individual results may vary.
