Have you ever wondered what your eyelashes would look like if they were just a little bit longer and fuller? You might have even considered false eyelashes, but the risk of infection made you think twice. Now, you can get longer, fuller lashes without the hassle with Latisse. Latisse is an FDA-approved treatment that creates longer, darker, and fuller lashes!
Why Are Your Eyelashes Thin?
Most people don’t realize it, but eyelashes are just like the hair on your head. They have a growth cycle that includes growing, falling out, and growing again. In some cases, the growth cycle sputters, creating thin eyelashes.
Latisse fixes this problem by causing a higher number of eyelashes to sprout. In addition, it lengthens the growth cycle, so your eyelashes won’t fall out as quickly. This results in thicker and fuller eyelashes.
You need a prescription for Latisse. Most people can use the product at home without supervision, but those who have been treated for eye pressure problems will need to use the product under the care of their doctors. Your Shelton, Connecticut eye doctor will need to monitor your eye pressure to make sure it doesn’t get too low while using the product.
You will simply dab the medication on your lash line every night via a sterile applicator. Just put it on the upper lash line and it will spread to your lower lash line when you blink. Then, it will get to work to create longer, fuller eyelashes.
It takes about two months to get results from Latisse. By the time three or four months roll around, you will have nice and thick lashes. At that point, you will likely be able to use the product every other day instead of daily. Be sure to keep using it consistently, however. If you stop using the product completely, your eyelashes will return to their previous state.
Potential Side Effects
While most people use Latisse without any issues, it is important to understand the possible side effects before moving forward. According to the manufacturer, approximately four percent of clinical trial participants had an itching sensation or redness in their eyes while using Latisse. Less common side effects include dryness, irritation, and skin darkening. Skin darkening is typically reversible.
Finally, hair growth can occur anywhere that the solution frequently touches. For instance, if you get a lot of the solution on your upper eyelid and fail to wipe it off, it could grow hair. Fortunately, this issue is easily avoided by wiping away the excess solution.
Latisse provides a simple way for people to get longer, fuller eyelashes. Instead of dealing with false eyelashes, you can put a solution on and then go back to your normal life. If you are sick of having anemic-looking lashes, contact Dr. Pinke and find out how you can get a prescription.
