Grow longer, fuller, darker lashes with this easy to apply, prescription treatment for enhancing eyelashes.
Are you seeking longer and fuller lashes? Patients spend hundreds of dollars on department store products to thicken, lengthen and darken or even grow back eyelashes. Many pay dearly to have the popular eyelash extensions applied by a beauty industry professional, but there’s another option.
Now, an FDA-approved product (available by prescription only) has been formulated to increase eyelash growth, helping to promote longer, fuller and darker lashes.
What Should I Know About LATISSE™?
LATISSE™—an FDA-approved ophthalmic solution—is the first prescription treatment effective in growing longer, fuller and darker eyelashes for those who can’t properly grow the eyelashes they desire due to a condition known as Hypotrichosis.
When applied daily to the base of your upper eyelashes, the solution makes lash growth possible as a result of its active ingredient known as bimatoprost. Research suggests that bimatoprost can help to grow eyelashes or even grow back eyelashes by increasing the percentage of hairs and prolonging the hair growth phase. This enables you to grow longer, thicker and darker eyelashes.
While LATISSE™ is a newer treatment in eyelash growth, it was developed through years of research by Allergan, a pharmaceutical leader with over 60 years of expertise in prescription eye care products. The FDA reviewed clinical study results to verify that LATISSE™ is a safe and effective product for its intended use if used as prescribed.
Am I a Good Candidate for LATISSE™?
The first step is to speak with one of the Minnesota Eye Consultants oculoplastic surgeons to find out if LATISSE™ is right for you. Your doctor will have to evaluate your medical history and determine if you’re a good candidate for this treatment.
You should not use LATISSE™ if you have an active eye condition, including an eye infection, or have broken or irritated skin on your eyelid. If you are using certain eye products for specific eye diseases or conditions, it is important that you not use LATISSE™ until after consulting with your doctor.
When Can I Expect to See Results?
LATISSE™ is easy to use and provides you with visible results that can be seen over time. Although results can vary, after using the solution as directed—once a day—patients participating in a clinical trial noticed results gradually; first at 4 weeks, more significantly at 8 weeks and the full result after 16 weeks of use.
