Is the Latisse Lash Enhancement Procedure Right for You?
Latisse is the first FDA-approved treatment designed to help give you plush, fuller lashes. If you have thinning or inadequate eyelashes, you may qualify for the Latisse lash enhancement procedure.
Latisse is not new, but it has been gaining traction lately. In fact, it was approved back in December 2008. Several celebrities have tried the treatment and loved it, like Mandy Moore.
How Does the Latisse Prescription Work?
Latisse is designed to lengthen, thicken, and darken your existing eyelashes. Unlike hair on your head, this medication specifically targets the eyelash and through several phases, will eventually enhance your eyelashes naturally.
It is only effective when the treatment is applied correctly. Therefore, you must be cautious and always follow the instructions given to you by your provider.
How Long Does It Take to See Latisse Results?
Usually, it takes two months of nightly use before you will see the Latisse results. You will have a three to four-month treatment plan prescribed by your doctor, and you may need to continue a treatment every two days until you achieve thee results you want.
If you stop the medication, your eyelashes will return to their original length and thickness.
FAQs About Latisse Lash Enhancement Procedures
To see if the Latisse enhancement procedure is right for you, you should consult with a cosmetic professional in your area, like the team at UELC.
While you wait for your consultation, here are some facts that may help you better understand this procedure:
- What is the main ingredient in Latisse? The active ingredient used in Latisse is bimatoprost, which is a medication specifically designed to grow eyelashes.
- Can Latisse help my eyebrows? Yes, you can use Latisse on your eyebrows, especially if you have thinning areas of the brow you want to thicken. Only a few tiny drops of the medication are required for eyebrow treatments but you will go through your bottle much faster.
- Will Latisse change my eye colour? One concern by patients today is whether Latisse will change their eye colour. In certain cases, you may notice that you have a darkening of the eyelid skin from the medication, and the brown pigment colour of your eye could increase in darkness. If you see these changes, they are permanent. Therefore, your physician may have you stop the treatment.
- Are there side effects to using Latisse? As with all medical treatments, there are side effects to consider with Latisse. Not all side effects occur, but it is important you understand the common ones that include eye irritation and redness, discomfort, itchy or dry eyes, watery eyes, puffy and red eyelids. These should disappear within a few days but always consult with your physician if you develop any side effects for an assessment.
How Much Does the Latisse Lash Enhancement Procedure Cost?
The cost of Latisse depends on how often you use it, whether you are treating very thin eyelashes and eyebrows at the same time, and the results you want. When you meet with a UELC team member, we can discuss the price of your specific treatment.
