Make Your Lashes Lush with Latisse

Make Your Lashes Lush with Latisse

Latisse® Highlands, NC

We all know that the eyes are one of the first facial features to get noticed. This doesn’t apply only to eyes that are made up Red-Carpet style. Whether perfectly adorned under perfectly-threaded brows or ready for a no-makeup selfie, the eyes are going to get the attention of others. They will demonstrate our youthfulness by looking bright and energetic. The value of the eyes doesn’t end there. As you may know, the eyelashes also demonstrate a healthy dose of youthfulness.

It is no secret that lush lashes are totally on trend, and probably always will be. Today, it is not uncommon to notice a person wearing false eyelashes. While this is a trend all its own, false lashes do come with some disadvantages. One of them is that the look is unnatural because the lashes themselves are unnatural! We have a way to solve that problem: Latisse®.

Haven’t Heard of Latisse®?

Latisse is not a new drug. It’s been around since the FDA approved it in 2008. The product was developed on accident, really, when patients with glaucoma noticed enhancements in their lashes due to bimatoprost ophthalmic solution, a glaucoma medication. This was modified into Latisse®. Applied to the skin at the lash line, the product stimulates eyelash growth that results in improved thickness, length, and darkness.

For Latisse to work, the product needs to be applied daily. Instructions state that Latisse should be applied on cleansed skin. Contact lenses need to be removed before treatment. For visible results to occur, daily use must continue for several weeks. Clinical use demonstrates full results after about 16 weeks (4 months) of use. Additionally, studies indicate that ongoing, though less intense, use is necessary to maintain adequate lash growth and fullness.

Can Someone with Glaucoma use Latisse?

Latisse contains an ingredient that has been used to reduce the intraocular pressure created by glaucoma. Studies suggest that most people can use Latisse safely, even those with glaucoma. However, due to the potential change in intraocular pressure, experts recommend patients discuss their interest in using Latisse with their ophthalmologist. The doctor may suggest more frequent observation of intraocular pressure for at least a few months after you begin Latisse®.

It just keeps getting easier to promote natural beauty. To learn how Latisse can help you, call our Highlands, NC office at (828) 526-3783.

Magic In a Wand: How to Get the Best Out of Your Latisse

 Latisse®Getting ready every day can seem like a full-time job, especially when it comes time to applying your makeup. By wrestling with eyeshadow, eyeliner, and mascara, sometimes it can seem impossible to get your eyes to look perfect. That’s why our patients at The Center For Plastic Surgery rave about Latisse.  As the only FDA-approved treatment that is clinically proven to help grow and darken eyelashes, Latisse can create fuller and longer lashes. Latisse can make your mornings go a lot more smoothly and will require you to wear a lot less makeup. From using the proper wands to the application process, this article will discuss how you can get the best out of your Latisse. Read on to learn more.

The Wands

When it comes to applying mascara, women everywhere will use just about anything to get it to go on correctly— including cotton swabs and bobby-pins. However, when it comes to applying Latisse, it’s important that you only use the wands that come with it. Every time you dip your wand into the Latisse bottle, you can contaminate it, which can result in eye infections. Remember that once you use your disposable Latisse wand, you should throw it away and use a new one the next time.

The Application Process

When using Latisse remember that patience is a virtue. Although you may think that the more you apply Latisse, the faster it will work, that simply isn’t the case. Latisse takes an average of 3-4 weeks for patients to start seeing results and about 16 weeks until patients see the full results.

Remember when applying Latisse to only apply it to your upper lashes. It will automatically apply itself to the lower lashes when you close your eyes.

Latisse is a remarkable drug that can help your lashes grow longer, darker and fuller without the use of mascara or eyelash extensions. If you would like to learn more about Latisse, contact The Center For Plastic Surgery today!
