Long and thick eyelashes make your eyes look brighter and give you an overall younger and livelier look. However, not everyone is blessed with long, thick, and dark eyelashes. Many people’s eyelashes are brittle, short, pale, and missing in patches.

If you are not satisfied with the condition of your natural eyelashes, there is a simple, safe, and effective solution available to you: Latisse.

Latisse: Natural Eyelash Regrowth

Latisse is a medication that is designed for people who want to restore their eyelashes. It is approved by the FDA for the treatment of hypotrichosis, a condition where people have inadequate eyelashes.

The generic version of Latisse is bimatoprost. Bimatoprost is also marketed under the trade name Lumigan as eyedrops for treatment of glaucoma. It was found that an unexpected side effect of Lumigan was growth of eyelashes, and this discovery led to the development of Latisse.

Proper Application of Latisse

Latisse is meant to be applied specifically along the lash line of your upper eyelid. It should not be used on your lower lash line. For best results, use the medication once every day for about two months or as recommended by Dr. Chegar.

Before you apply Latisse, wash your hands and face. Make sure that you remove your make-up and contact lenses. You can put your contacts back in shortly after applying Latisse; it’s important to wait at least 15 minutes.

Next, put one drop of the Latisse solution on the single-use applicator provided. Carefully wipe the applicator along your upper lash line, from the inner lash line towards the outer lash line. Throw away the applicator after a single use, and use a new applicator every day.

If you accidentally get the solution on any other part of your face, make sure that you wipe it off. If the solution goes inside your eye, there is no need to be alarmed. It should not cause any harm, since bimatoprost is the same solution used for glaucoma treatment.

The results of this medication – longer, thicker, and darker eyelashes – will be seen for as long as Latisse is consistently applied on the lash line of your upper eyelid. Patients can see results after around four weeks of applying Latisse, and by the eighth week, these results will have increased. Once 16 weeks have passed, the results will be fully realized.

If you stop applying Latisse, your lashes will return to their pre-Latisse appearance. Remember that not every user of Latisse will get the same results.

Am I a Suitable Candidate?

Anyone with inadequate eyelashes can apply Latisse. If you are not happy with the current appearance of your eyelashes and you want longer, thicker, and darker lashes, Latisse is the ideal solution for you. If you’re missing lashes and want to regrow them, Latisse is an excellent option.
