While the eyes are the windows to the soul, not everyone has the best window frames! Eyelashes that are sparse, thin, or short can make patients feel self-conscious about how they look. Oftentimes, mascara and eyeliner can’t correct this concern. In situations like this, our team at Smooth Solutions Medical Aesthetics may recommend the use of a product called Latisse.
What is Latisse?
Many women who want fuller, thicker, longer eyelashes are satisfied with the results they achieve with cosmetics. However, others want a more natural look even when they’re not wearing makeup. In these situations, patients may be advised to consider the benefits of solutions such as Latisse.
Dr. Jack Bertolino describes Latisse as a treatment that enhances the eyelashes. It is a medication formulated with an active ingredient known as bimatoprost. When it was first developed years ago for the treatment of ocular hypertension, it was found to have a pleasing side effect: the improved thickness and length of the eyelashes. In 2008, the FDA approved Latisse for lash growth. This prescription has been used by millions of women seeking these aesthetic enhancements.
How do I use Latisse?
The Latisse prescription comes with one month’s supply of medication, along with disposable wands that are used once and disposed of. Patients will apply the medication onto the upper lashes before bed. When sleeping, the medication will also apply to the lower lashes to provide improvements in both. Over the course of time, patients will see a transformation, fully complete within 16 weeks of daily use. If patients choose to stop using Latisse, their eyelashes will return to their original length and thickness with time. Continued use ensures maintained lash quality.
