Thin and sparse eyelashes can leave you feeling less than comfortable with your looks. Fortunately, with recent medical breakthroughs, you don’t have to keep living with thin eyelashes.
Our specialists at ENVY Skin Clinic in Glendale and Sherman Oaks, California, are pleased to provide this option for qualifying candidates.
Here we share more about Latisse, including the benefits you can anticipate.
How Latisse can help
Latisse contains a synthetic form of prostaglandin, a natural substance in your body. Proglastin disrupts and then stimulates the growth cycle of your eyelashes. Scientists discovered that synthetic prostaglandin could help people grow lusher lashes.
Unlike eyelash extensions, which bring an increased risk for eye disorders such as dry eye disease and allergies, Latisse is noninvasive and simple to apply at home. And once Latisse starts working, you can expect not only thicker, more visible lashes but a boost in your self-confidence about your appearance.
Good candidates for Latisse
If you’ve lost eyelashes due to other treatments such as eyelash extensions or have sparse eyelash growth, you may be a great candidate for Latisse.
Latisse is generally considered safe for anyone with healthy eyes. If you have any chronic medical conditions that may impact your eyes, talk to our team before considering treatment.
What to expect once you start
Once you’ve been prescribed Latisse, you apply it to your upper lashes using a sterile applicator once each day. Most people choose first thing in the morning or right before bed.
You’ll want to avoid your lower lashes and keep the serum away from other facial areas, to prevent unwanted hair growth. While most people find the process comfortable, in rare cases, eyelid darkening or irritation occurs.
When you use Latisse properly daily, you can expect to see full results in 8-10 weeks. From there, you may select to switch to applying it every other day. However, you’ll need to keep applying the serum to some degree, or your eyelashes will go back to their original state. Our team will help determine your best course of treatment.
