Latisse that lengthens and thickens your eyelashes
As an eyelash grower, Latisse has been in use since FDA approval in 2008. Its eyelash lengthening effect originates from the clinical use of a glaucoma drug, which has been noticed with side effects such as hair growth and longer, lusher eyelashes. Both hair and eyelash have their own growth periods. Studies have showed that Latisse can lengthen, thicken and darken eyelashes, as well as extend their growth circle.
Good effects are expectable
Clinical experiences show that Latisse has significant effects after 16 weeks’ administration. More specifically, the eyelash length can be increased by 25%, its thickness by 106% and darkness by 18%. Nearly all users can notice these effects obviously.
Details of Latisse administration
Before dabbing Latisse on your upper lash line with a sterile applicator, you should remove your makeup and contact lenses. Applicators should be discarded after one use, in order to prevent any infection or allergic reaction. It is recommended to use Latisse every day during the first two months and every two days during the following months.
What are not good candidate for Latisse
Latisse should not be applied to some people, such as those with uveitis and conjunctivitis, people with severe allergies or skin infections of the upper eyelids, pregnant women as well as nursing women. Latisse lowers intraocular pressure so that you must let your doctor know your use of Latisse, in case of any side effect for IOP-lowering medications.
Possible side effects and price
Latisse may bring subtle side effects under improper treatment, such as red eye, itchy eye, dry eye, eyelid redness, and potential iris brown pigmentation. Once you find any of these side effects, you should see your doctor for an exam. Latisse is a drug that requires a prescription from a doctor, although cosmetic surgeons and dermatologists are more familiar with this new treatment. A supply of 60 applicators for one month typically costs $120.
What should be avoided?
Latisse use should be strictly monitored by a doctor if the user is using or has used any kind of prescription product for any eye pressure problems. The reason is that this group of people is quite likely to suffer increased brown pigmentation of the colored part of the eye. Another point to avoid is that people should never apply Latisse to the lower eyelid. The proper use of Latisse is to apply only at the base of the upper eyelashes.
