Thicken and Lengthen Eyelashes With Latisse

February 14, 2020

Many women who have thin or short eyelashes may use a variety of solutions to give the appearance of thicker, longer lashes, including the use of mascara and fake eyelash extensions. However, with the use of a prescription medication called Latisse, patients can improve the appearance of their eyelashes!

What is Latisse?

Latisse is a prescription medication that was approved by the FDA in 2008 to promote eyelash growth and thickening. It also darkens the lashes, eliminating the need for mascara for many women who undergo treatment. This liquid formula is made with bimatoprost ophthalmic solution and is completely safe and effective for women. The medication is applied to the upper lashes only at night, and over the course of several weeks, will improve the appearance of lashes—especially for those who have thinning or inadequate eyelashes.

How long before results are achieved, and how do I maintain the results?

In most situations, patients will begin to see results after a month or two, with many seeing complete changes by four months of continuous treatments. To maintain the results, patients need to continue to use the medication. If a patient stops using Latisse, the lashes will thin and return to the appearance they were when they started treatment.

Why choose Latisse?

Latisse has several advantages. It provides natural results, eliminating the need for cosmetics or fake eyelashes. Latisse is affordable, and can be obtained with a doctor’s prescription. It is easy to use and FDA-approved, ensuring safety and efficacy.

Am I a candidate for Latisse?

Determining candidacy for Latisse starts with a consultation appointment with Dr. Margaret Summerville. She will perform an initial evaluation and decide if a patient can benefit from this treatment or other cosmetic solutions available. Most patients who have inadequate lashes and want to see noticeable improvement can ask about Latisse.
