Latisse®  is a revolutionary treatment that addresses the concerns of inadequate or not enough lashes, medically termed as hypotrichosis. It is designed to enhance the appearance of eyelashes, making them more luxurious and fuller. The treatment primarily involves the application of Bimatoprost, a compound initially used to treat glaucoma, which was found to have the beneficial side effect of growing longer, thicker lashes. The FDA approved Latisse®  in December 2008 after rigorous clinical trials and studies proved its safety and efficacy. Latisse®  operates by extending the anagen (growth) phase of the eyelash hair cycle, allowing users to experience visible improvement in the length, thickness, and darkness of their eyelashes.

The benefits of Latisse®  are multifaceted, impacting not only physical appearance but also one’s confidence and self-esteem. Clinical studies have rigorously demonstrated the effectiveness of Latisse®  in enhancing eyelash prominence by up to 106% within 16 weeks of regular application. The aesthetic appeal of having fuller and darker eyelashes can profoundly enhance facial symmetry and attractiveness, often allowing individuals to feel more comfortable and confident in their skin. Unlike temporary solutions like mascara, lash extensions, or false lashes, Latisse®  offers more lasting and natural-looking results, granting users the luxury of waking up every day to beautiful, captivating eyes without the hassle of daily maintenance or the risk of damage associated with other eyelash-enhancing options. In the journey to achieving aesthetic contentment, Latisse®  stands as a beacon of hope for those desiring to accentuate their natural beauty and boost their self-assurance.

Ideal candidates for Latisse®  are individuals experiencing thinning or inadequate eyelashes and who wish for longer, fuller, and darker lashes.

During this step, our team will evaluate your medical history, discuss your aesthetic goals, and determine whether Latisse®  is a suitable treatment option for you, ensuring your safety and satisfaction throughout the process.

Frequently Asked Questions about LATISSE® Eyelash Treatment

What is LATISSE® and how does it work?

LATISSE® is a prescription treatment designed to enhance the length, thickness, and darkness of eyelashes. The active ingredient in LATISSE® is bimatoprost, which was initially used to treat glaucoma and ocular hypertension. During these treatments, patients noticed a significant increase in eyelash growth. LATISSE® works by extending the growth phase (anagen phase) of the eyelash hair cycle and increasing the number of hairs in this phase. Users apply LATISSE® to the base of their upper eyelashes daily, and results typically become noticeable within eight weeks, with full results appearing after 16 weeks. Consistent application is crucial for achieving and maintaining the desired results. It is important to follow the instructions provided by your healthcare provider to ensure safe and effective use.

Who is a good candidate for LATISSE® eyelash treatment?

Good candidates for LATISSE® eyelash treatment are individuals who have inadequate or sparse eyelashes and wish to enhance their appearance. Candidates should be in good overall health and free from any eye conditions that could interfere with the use of LATISSE®. It is important for candidates to have realistic expectations about the outcomes of the treatment. Those who are pregnant, nursing, or have a history of certain eye conditions should consult with their healthcare provider before starting LATISSE®. A thorough consultation with a qualified provider at Bruno Plastic Surgery will help determine if LATISSE® is the right choice based on individual needs and medical history. It’s essential to disclose any medications or underlying health issues during the consultation to ensure the treatment is safe and appropriate.

What can I expect during the LATISSE® application process?

The LATISSE® application process is simple and convenient, designed for easy integration into your daily routine. To apply LATISSE®, start with a clean face, removing any makeup and contact lenses. Using the sterile applicator provided, place one drop of LATISSE® solution on the applicator brush. Carefully apply the solution to the base of the upper eyelashes, working from the inner to the outer part of the lash line. It’s important to avoid getting the solution into the eye or applying it to the lower lash line, as this can lead to unwanted hair growth in other areas. Any excess solution should be blotted away with a tissue. The application should be done once daily, preferably at night. Consistency is key for achieving the best results. Over time, users will notice gradual improvements in the length, thickness, and darkness of their eyelashes.

Are there any side effects or risks associated with LATISSE®?

While LATISSE® is generally well-tolerated, there are potential side effects and risks associated with its use. Common side effects include eye redness, itching, dryness, and darkening of the eyelid skin where the product is applied. These side effects are usually mild and temporary. Less common but more serious side effects can include changes in eye color (increased brown pigmentation of the iris), eye irritation, or allergic reactions. It’s important to follow the application instructions carefully to minimize these risks. If any severe or persistent side effects occur, it’s crucial to contact your healthcare provider immediately. During the consultation at Bruno Plastic Surgery, the provider will review your medical history and discuss any potential risks to ensure that LATISSE® is a safe and suitable option for you.

How long does it take to see results with LATISSE®?

Results with LATISSE® typically become noticeable within eight weeks of consistent use, with full results appearing after 16 weeks. Users will observe a gradual increase in the length, thickness, and darkness of their eyelashes over this period. It’s important to apply the solution daily as directed to achieve the best results. If application is discontinued, the eyelashes will gradually return to their original appearance over several weeks to months. Patience and consistency are key when using LATISSE®. Regular follow-up appointments with your provider at Bruno Plastic Surgery can help monitor progress and ensure the treatment is working effectively. They can also provide guidance and support throughout the treatment process to help you achieve your desired results.

How do I maintain the results achieved with LATISSE®?

To maintain the results achieved with LATISSE®, continued use of the product is necessary. Once you have reached your desired eyelash length, thickness, and darkness, you can discuss with your provider about reducing the application frequency to maintain the results. Typically, this may involve applying LATISSE® every other day instead of daily. It’s important to follow your provider’s recommendations to ensure optimal maintenance of the results. If you stop using LATISSE®, your eyelashes will gradually return to their original state over time. Regular check-ins with your provider at Bruno Plastic Surgery can help you manage the ongoing use of LATISSE® and address any questions or concerns that arise. Consistent application and adherence to the prescribed regimen will help you enjoy long-lasting, beautiful eyelashes.
