Women often desire darker, longer eyelashes. While you can apply mascara to attain this result, it will wash off whenever you cleanse your face, sweat it out at the gym, or go for a swim.
Latisse can give you stronger, thicker, and more flirtatious eyelashes without the need for makeup. This topical solution works over the course of four months to increase the length and volume of your natural lashes.
What is Latisse?
Latisse is the first prescription treatment for inadequate lashes. It can reverse the natural, age-related thinning of the eyelashes that occur as eyelash follicles’ growth process stalls.
As a topical solution, Latisse is simply applied directly to the eyelashes, much like mascara. It consists of a 0.03% bimatoprost ophthalmic solution, which was originally formulated to help treat glaucoma by lowering the pressure in the eyes. Thicker, longer, and darker lashes were identified as an unforeseen benefit of this treatment, and Latisse earned FDA approval as a treatment for thinning eyelashes in 2008.
How Does Latisse Work?
Latisse is thought to work by lengthening the growth phase of the eyelashes, and well as boosting the number of eyelash follicles that are simultaneously in the growth phase. This results in a higher number of eyelashes, as well as longer, fuller lashes.
Given that the growth phase for hair follicles takes one to two months, Latisse doesn’t provide instant results. Most patients start to see some results after six to eight weeks, with the full results of Latisse becoming visible within four months.
Latisse is a safe, effective treatment for healthy individuals who want to increase the fullness of their lashes. At Hermann Aesthetics & Wellness, we can help determine if Latisse is the right treatment option for you.
