Over the course of time, eyelashes can go from full and luscious to thinner and less lustrous. Fortunately, you can bring you lashes back to life with the help of Latisse®. In fact, many women who use Latisse® don’t feel the need to wear mascara because the results are so effective. We at River Region Dermatology & Laser are proud to offer this incredibly effective cosmetic solution, and we invite you to learn more!
Latisse® is an FDA-approved product that came about by accident; it sprung from a medicated eyedrop being used to treat patients with elevated intraocular pressure. The key ingredient, bimatoprost, was discovered to be deeply effective in the stimulation of eyelash growth. The inner workings of this ingredient are still being studied, but the product has been proven safe and effective for eyelash enhancement. Initial results can be seen in about a month while the ultimate effect is generally seen after approximately four months. Patients have reported a 25% increase in lash length, 106% improvement in thickness, and 18% intensity in darkness. This is a take-home treatment intended for application to the base of the upper lashes. It is important that the patient remove contacts and any makeup prior to using Latisse®.
If you want to reclaim your lavish lashes without the use of mascara or synthetic extensions, it may be time to consider Latisse®.
