The appearance of a person’s eyes is one of the first things most people notice. Having long, lush, dark eyelashes can draw attention to the eyes, and may be subconsciously signalling that the possessor of such eyelashes is young and healthy. Many people try to enhance their eyelashes through the use of makeup, but on people with sparse short eyelashes, mascara can actually make that trait more obvious. Fake eyelashes can be attached, but they can cause irritation and infections, and have to regularly be replaced. Today there is another option: growing your own, natural, fabulously long, thick, and dark eyelashes with Latisse®.
What is Latisse®?
Latisse® is an FDA-approved medication that comes in liquid form that when applied to the upper eyelids, stimulates the growth of the eyelashes, resulting in longer, thicker, and darker lashes. The solution needs to be applied to the upper eyelids every evening. It takes multiple weeks before visible results are seen, and the full effect takes around 16 weeks to develop. If the treatment is discontinued for some reason, the eyelashes will gradually return their former appearance.
A Closer Look at the Treatment
In the evening, after cleansing the face to remove any makeup, removing contact lenses, and applying any other facial products that are being used, the treatment is applied. A tiny amount of the solution is applied. Most people do not experience any side effects.
What if I Have Glaucoma?
Latisse® was originally developed to treat glaucoma, which is associated with increased intraocular pressure. Most individuals with glaucoma can safely use Latisse®, but during the first few months of use, their intraocular pressure should be regularly checked to ensure that the solution is not interfering with their glaucoma medications.
