Short, Pale, Thin Eyelashes
Latisse is a version of the medication bimatoprost that is also used in prescription eye drops to treat glaucoma. As experts noticed that the treatment also led to eyelash growth, it eventually led to the creation and widespread proliferation of Latisse.*
How Does Latisse Work?
Latisse thickens, darkens, and lengthens eyelashes.* It increases the growth phase of the eyelashes and the number of hairs that grow on each eyelash.* The topical treatment is typically applied to the base of your upper eyelashes on a daily basis. You can expect to see results within four to eight weeks, and you can experience results after around twelve weeks of continuous application.*
How Do I Use Latisse?
The recommended dosage for Latisse is one nightly application to the skin of the upper eyelid margin at the base of the eyelashes and you should not exceed this. Before starting, ensure that your face is clean and make-up free and remove your contact lenses. You should not be applying the solution on your lower lid or in your eye.
You should be using disposable sterile applicators that must be discarded after one use. This should be done to prevent any possible contamination. You will need a minimum of two applicators for daily use. Reusing applicators even after one use could lead to infections and allergic reactions. Be very careful with Latisse, as it can promote hair growth on other regions of the skin that it touches.
If you wear contacts, you can reinsert them into your eyes about 15 to 20 minutes after administration. If Latisse gets into your eyes, it is unlikely to cause any harm, as it is an ophthalmic product. Do not rinse your eyes in this situation. If any disturbances persist, you should visit your doctor. Before choosing Latisse, you should consult your doctor to ensure that you are a good candidate, especially if you have a history of eye-pressure problems.
Am I a Good Candidate for Latisse?
Although Latisse is one of safest eyelash lengtheners, it is not suitable for everyone. You might not be eligible if you have eye issues such as conjunctivitis or if you have a high degree of risk for macular edema. If your upper eyelids are severely infected, you are unlikely to be a candidate. Pregnant women are not eligible and nursing mothers are also advised to wait.*
What Else Do You Need to Know?
Multiple applications of Latisse on a daily basis will not increase the growth of eyelashes further, so don’t waste the solution. If you stop using Latisse, your eyelashes will return to normal in a couple of months.
