WHAT IS LATISSE?
Latisse is the answer for longer fuller lashes and first launched in 2008 after receiving approval from the FDA. According to studies, Latisse lengthens, thickens and darkens eyelashes via a process that isn’t fully understood. Like the hair on your head, eyelashes sprout, grow for a while and eventually fall out. Latisse both extends the growth phase and increases the number of hairs that sprout. Say goodbye to clumpy mascara or racoon eyes from your makeup smearing in the hot summer heat, and join the ranks of Jenny McCarthy and Mandy Moore with lush eyelashes from Hehr Aesthetics.
THE LATISSE TREATMENT
You apply Latisse by dabbing it on the upper lash line each night with the sterile applicators supplied. The drug spreads to your lower lash line automatically as you blink. Dr. Hehr recommends that you should never apply it in your eye or onto your lower lid. Before you apply, your face must be clean, and eye contacts should be removed. Always discard each applicator after one use. Re-using applicators, even just once the next evening, can cause serious problems, such as an eye infection or allergic reaction. Dr. Hehr warns patients to be extra careful when applying, since Latisse may promote hair growth on other skin areas.
After two months of nightly use, you may begin to see results. After three or four months, Dr. Hehr recommends a treatment schedule of every two days. If you stop using Latisse, your eyelashes will gradually return to their former state.
