Most everyone wants long, full, fabulous eyelashes. Women spend hundreds of dollars on department store products to thicken, lengthen and darken or even grow back eyelashes. Many pay dearly to have the popular eyelash extensions applied by a beauty industry professional. Others, just can’t seem to ever grow eyelashes like they so desire.
Now, an FDA-approved product (available by prescription only) has been formulated to increase eyelash growth grow back eyelashes and help promote longer, fuller darker lashes.
LATISSE®—an FDA-approved ophthalmic solution—is the first and only prescription treatment effective in growing longer, fuller and darker eyelashes for those who can’t properly grow eyelashes like they desire due to a condition known as Hypotrichosis.
The solution, when applied daily to the base of your upper eyelashes, makes lash growth possible as a result of its active ingredient known as bimatoprost. Research suggests that bimatoprost can help to grow eyelashes or even grow back eyelashes by increasing the percentage of hairs and prolonging the hair growth phase. This enables you to grow eyelashes to be longer, thicker and darker.
While LATISSE® is a new treatment in eyelash growth; it was developed through years of research by Allergan, a pharmaceutical leader with over 60 years of expertise in prescription eye care products. The FDA reviewed clinical study results to verify that LATISSE® is a safe and effective product for its intended use if used as prescribed.
The first step is to speak with one of our CosmetiCare physicians to find out if the solution to grow eyelashes is right for you. Not everyone may be a candidate for this treatment. Your doctor will have to evaluate your medical history to determine if it’s right for you.
You should not use LATISSE® if you have an active eye condition, including an eye infection, or have broken or irritated skin on your eyelid. If you are using certain eye products for specific eye diseases or conditions it is important that you not use LATISSE® until after consulting with your doctor.
Make sure to get all the facts before making the decision to use this new product. We have provided some basic information for you about LATISSE®. However, we encourage you to further inquire with your doctor to best determine if it is right for you.
LATISSE® is easy to use and provides you with visible results that can be seen over time, Although results can vary, after using the solution as directed—once a day—patients participating in a clinical trial noticed results gradually; first at 4 weeks, more significantly at 8 weeks and the full result after 16 weeks of use.
