Sometimes, no amount of your favorite mascara will make your lashes appear thicker, fuller, or longer. Or perhaps you’ve come to the conclusion that your lashes aren’t as lush and full as you’d like them to be, in which case you should consider the perfect solution – enhancing and growing your own lashes with Latisse.
Latisse is the first and only lash serum approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for treating hypotrichosis or inadequate or reduced eyelashes. Latisse is a safe and effective option if you want to lengthen, strengthen, thicken, and darken your lashes in a way that has been shown to be safe and effective.
What Is Latisse?
Latisse is a topical serum that is applied with a specialized applicator to the skin at the base of the upper eyelashes that promotes longer, thicker eyelashes.
Benefits of Latisse
- Increases eyelash thickness
- Encourages eyelash growth
- Can be used with contact lenses
- Safe and effective
Preparing for Latisse
Make sure your face is clean and free of any makeup before applying Latisse. If you wear eye makeup, remove it thoroughly with a cleansing balm or oil. After washing, pat your face dry. Before applying your treatment, if you wear contacts, remember to take them out.
When can I expect to start seeing outcomes?
Most patients see results in as little as one month, but the full effect takes 16 weeks to manifest.
If I have blue eyes, is Latisse still an option?
Absolutely! Over a million patients have been treated, and not a single one has experienced a change in eye pigment.
Mitchell Dermatology is dedicated to assisting patients in achieving their maximum eyelash growth. The medically trained and professional staff of Mitchell Dermatology can help you decide if Latisse is right for you and answer any questions you may have about the medication’s possible risks and side effects.
