Abra Cadabra: How to Properly Use Latisse
Wouldn’t it be amazing if you could throw away your mascara and magically make more eyelashes appear? Well, that dream can virtually be your reality if you use Latisse. As the only FDA-approved product that is designed to help encourage the natural growth and production of your eyelashes, Latisse is concerned to be a miracle worker amongst our patients at Chevy Chase Dermatology. Whether you currently have a prescription for Latisse or if you are interested in learning more, this article is full of a few helpful tips. Read on to find out more.
Only Use the Applicators It Came With
When it comes to using mascara, you may be a little more lax regarding how often you apply it or what applicators you use to apply it with. However, when it comes to Latisse, it’s important that you only put in on by using the applicators that it came with. By using other applicators that aren’t designed for Latisse, you can get the treatment solution on other parts of your eyes and cause infection. Additionally, make sure that you throw away your applicators after every use— this will help to spread bacteria.
Only Use on the Upper Lids
When you think of full eyelashes, you likely think of having both full upper and lower eyelashes. However, Latisse is only approved to be used on the upper eyelashes, and so you shouldn’t apply them to the lower ones. If you would like to add a bit more length and volume to your lower lashes, try using mascara.
Only Use Nightly
Another thing to remember when using Latisse is only to apply it once at night before bed. Remember that if you apply it more than directed, your eyelashes will not grow in thicker or faster, but it could weaken your lashes and cause reverse results.
With the help of Latisse, you can grow thicker, longer eyelashes that are worth showing off to all of your friends in family. However, to ensure that you get the best results possible, use the tips listed above.
