The length and volume of eyelashes tends to diminish over time. It used to be that the only thing you could do about the problem was to glue on fake extensions at home or pay for a professional pair at the salon. Those options are messy, cumbersome and expensive. Today, there’s an easier way. Getting eyelash growth via Latissesimply involves applying a topical solution to the base of your upper eyelid each evening. Read on to learn more about this prescription and how it can benefit you.

About Latisse

Latisse is FDA-approved to grow lashes. Its active ingredient, bimatoprost, began as a medication for glaucoma. Patients began to notice the positive side effects of thicker, longer and darker eyelashes. This discovery led to the research and development of what is known today as Latisse. You can only obtain this solution by prescription from your medical practitioner.

Candidates for This Treatment

There are some individuals who shouldn’t use this treatment. Those with an active eye infection or any type of inflammation around the eye region should wait for it to heal before beginning treatment with Latisse. Any noticeable vision decrease or eye trauma should be cause to avoid contact with Latisse, as well. In addition, anyone with a known eye condition should consult with their ophthalmologist before undergoing treatment.

How it Works

You should apply the serum to the base of the lashes of your upper eyelid each evening before bed. Always use the disposable applicator included in the packaging. Be sure to always use a fresh applicator for each eye application. Most doctors recommend you continue using Latisse for a total of 16 weeks in order to achieve full effects. You may notice darker lashes after just a few weeks of use. Then a visible difference in length should be seen soon after. However, it’s important continue the process for the entire 16 weeks.
