Luscious lashes are yours with Allergan’s Latisse. Latisse is a prescription treatment for treating hypotrichosis, which is inadequate or thin eyelashes. It is the only FDA approved prescription treatment. We like to refer to it as the “Miracle Gro” of lashes. The product begins working within 6 to 8 weeks of prescribed use as lashes get thicker, darker, and longer. Latisse works gradually, with full results at about 16 weeks. You may be surprised to learn that Latisse was discovered while treating glaucoma patients with bimatoprost, the active ingredient in Latisse. After receiving bimatoprost eye drops, glaucoma patients were returning to their ophthalmologist with longer, thicker and darker lashes. Allergan then developed the product into a safe, topical application that works very effectively for patients experiencing thin, light, and short eyelashes.
Latisse is very easy to apply. Each box of Latisse at Renew Medical Spa includes the bottle and daily applicator brushes. With your daily commitment to application along the lash line, you’ll soon have longer, thicker, and darker lashes. If you stop using Latisse, your lashes with gradually return to their previous appearance. Although uncommon among our patients, possible side effects with Latisse include darkening of lid pigmentation along the lash line, redness, and itching. These symptoms reverse after Latisse use is discontinued.
After you have used Latisse for about 6 months, you can cut back on applications since you’re in a “maintenance phase.” It is still important to apply Latisse 3 to 4 times per week. It’s not a problem if you miss a day occasionally, but if you stop using the product eventually your lashes will go back to their pre-Latisse state.
