Latisse (bimatoprost) is an FDA-approved prescription medication manufactured by Allergan. It can safely and effectively treat hypotrichosis in most individuals who suffer from the condition. At River Region Dermatology and Laser in Montgomery, AL, we proudly offer this treatment because we understand how important luscious lashes are to your appearance and self-confidence. Today, we’re taking a closer look at the benefits of this incredible treatment.

What Are the Benefits of Latisse?

This Treatment Can Correct Hypotrichosis

Latisse is the only prescription medication approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to treat hypotrichosis. Regardless of whether you’re worried about the length, color, or thickness of your eyelashes, you can feel confident that bimatoprost will help you achieve upper eyelashes others will envy.

This Latisse Treatment Is Right for Most People

Another benefit of bimatoprost is that it is appropriate for most people who are at least 18 years old. However, an initial consultation is required to verify your candidacy. To determine whether this treatment is appropriate for you, we will discuss your allergies, cosmetic concerns, and aesthetic goals.

This Treatment Is Easy To Apply

Another benefit of this prescription medication is that it is incredibly easy to apply. The first step in applying this medication is to remove makeup from your eye area. For example, you cannot wear mascara, especially if it’s waterproof, while you are applying the medication to your lashes. Eye shadow, foundation, lotion, and other cosmetics should also be removed from the area. Furthermore, you should take out your contact lenses if you wear them.

Once you’ve cleaned your eye area, you just need to follow a couple more steps. Wash your hands thoroughly with hot water and an antibacterial soap. Then, remove an applicator brush from its packaging. It should be held horizontally. Next, apply one drop of bimatoprost near the top of the brush. For the best results, get this drop of medication as close to the tip of the applicator brush without getting it on the brush tip. Then, apply the medication to your lashes like you’re applying mascara.

This Treatment Is Low-Maintenance

Yet another benefit of this treatment is that it is very low maintenance. If you opt for eyelash extensions, you will need to keep them dry for 48 hours after they are glued on. You will also need to brush them daily and clean them every 72 hours. Moreover, you won’t be able to cluster your synthetic lashes, use eyelash clusters, or pick at them regardless of how uncomfortable they feel. Even worse, you are restricted to sleeping on your back.

This Treatment Is Safe

Yet another benefit of this treatment is that it is generally considered safe. The box that contains the bottle of medication also contains daily applicator brushes. If you keep the brushes in the box until you are ready to use one, you don’t have to worry about irritation caused by pet dander, pollen, dust, or other irritants.

Just make sure that you only use the applicator brushes that come with your medication and don’t let the applicator tip come into contact with anything but the tip of the bottle. If you get bimatoprost in your eye, there is nothing to worry about. Washing your eye out is unnecessary. You don’t need to rinse any of the drug out of your upper lashes. Just stay calm and remember to wait no fewer than 15 minutes to put in your contacts after getting the medication in your eye.

What To Do If You Get the Medication Somewhere Else

There is action necessary if you get your lash-growing medication somewhere other than your upper eyelashes or eyes. If you accidentally get medication on your eyebrows or lower eyelashes, immediately use cold water to wash the medication off. Just be careful to not wash off any of the medication applied to your upper eyelashes.

This Treatment Works Quickly

You can also expect bimatoprost to work pretty quickly. Different eyelashes are in different phases of the hair growth cycle at any given time. For this reason, it may take around three to four months for all of your lashes to become as dark, thick, and long as you want them to. However, you will start to feel more confident in the appearance of your upper eyelashes after just a couple of months.

This Treatment Is Long-Lasting

Another incredible benefit of bimatoprost is that the results of treatment are long-lasting. You may need to apply this medication three to four nights per week to maintain your ideal results. If you stop applying the medication once you achieve your desired results, though, it will be between three and 12 months before your desired results fade.
