Read on to learn more.
Only Use On the Top
When you think of full lashes, you likely think of lashes that are full both on the top and bottom of the eyelid. And although this is true, Latisse is only approved to be used on the top lashline and should be avoided on the bottom of the lash line because it could cause infection or other eye related issues. To get a more volumized look on your lower lashes, consider using a dark mascara to help accentuate your current lashes.
Use the Disposable Applicator
You may not realize just how dirty things such as an applicator or wand can get and when it is coming close to your eyes, you are going to want to make sure you are using every precaution to keep your eyes clean of dirt and debris. As one of the most important rules for using Latisse, make sure that you only use one of the sterile, disposable applicators given to you with your Latisse purchase— this will help to prevent you against any eye infection.
Another great way to ensure that you protect your eyes from getting any infection is to apply Latisse to a clean face and to make sure that you aren’t wearing contacts. Contact lenses can sometimes attract the Latisse and can spread to your eye which can cause infection. Additionally, if you apply Latisse to a dirty face or a to eyes that have eye makeup on them, then you also risk the spread of dirt and infection.
Make sure that you get the most out of your Latisse by using the above recommendations. To learn more about Latisse or any of our other treatments, contact Dr. Jack Bertolino today!
