Home Latisse Enhance Your Eyelashes Using Latisse

October 15, 2019

| emmett plastic surgeryEyelash growth products that have hit the market continue to be the talk of women around the globe. However, many of these over-the-counter products don’t provide the results women desire to achieve. With the use of a prescription strength product called Latisse, women can now achieve fuller, thicker, and darker lashes that don’t require mascara!

What is Latisse?

Latisse is the first and only FDA-approved product for the use of cosmetic lash lengthening and thickening. Latisse uses an ingredient called bimatoprost which can assist for patients with thinning lashes. The medication is applied to the upper eyelashes at bedtime, and are applied to the lower lashes when the patient is asleep. Over the course of time, the lashes will grow thicker, longer, and darker, ensuring natural beauty and dramatic improvement—without the need for false lashes!

Does Latisse work for everyone?

Latisse has been tested in clinical trials to ensure safety and efficiency. This product has had years of research and development, and is a great way for patients to achieve the lashes of their dreams!

Are there any side effects to Latisse treatment?

Some of the more common, yet short-term, side effects of using Latisse include:

  • Redness of the eye
  • Itching eyes
  • Skin darkening
  • Redness of the eyelids
  • Dryness
  • Eye irritation

Many of these side effects come from improper application, while others will go away with continued use as the patient becomes more accustomed to the product.

Are the results permanent?

The results of Latisse are not permanent. In fact, when patients stop using the product, the lashes will return to their original pre-treatment state. To maintain the results, patients need to use the product daily. Refills of the prescription are available with the team at Emmett Plastic Surgery when patients maintain their routine appointments.
