What is Latisse?
Most people want long, beautiful lashes. Especially, when thinking about wearing mascara everyday which can cause eyelashes to fall out and can be irritating to clean. Latisse® eyelash solution is a prescription treatment for hypotrichosis. Latisse is used to grow eyelashes, making them longer, thicker, and darker. In clinical studies of Latisse, the majority of participants using the treatment saw significant eyelash growth after just two months.
How to Use Latisse
Latisse is an FDA-approved treatment for the growth of fuller, longer eyelashes. Treatment is easy- simply apply Latisse to the lash line as directed. After treatment, patients may experience an itching sensation, but this is temporary. Results will appear gradually over time, with most people seeing an improvement in their lashes in about four weeks. The best results show around 16 weeks of use. However, continual use of Latisse is needed to maintain results.
If you discontinue the use of Latisse, your eyelashes will simply return to their natural state. Patients should be aware of possible side effects, which include darkening of the iris of the eye, which is possibly permanent, and eyelid skin darkening, which may be reversible.
Who Can Benefit from Latisse?
Most people can benefit from a Latisse treatment. Patients who are unhappy with the fullness of their lashes can often benefit from Latisse. However, if you have severe allergies or are allergic to any of the ingredients in Latisse, you should not undergo this treatment. The best way to see if this treatment is right for you is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Sabbagh.
How Long Does Latisse Last?
