There are a lot of eyelash serums on the market today, which all may claim in making your eyelashes the longest and thickest they’ve ever been. With so many options, it may be daunting to choose the correct one. If you’re curious and just don’t know where to start, keep reading to fully understand why Doctors and Health Practitioners alike only trust using Latisse. Latisse is the only FDA approved, prescription eyelash serum on the market, proven to improve eyelashes for people with thin or not adequate eyelashes. Latisse works by enhancing the life of your own eyelashes to be longer, fuller, and darker. Say bye-bye to falsies, cancel that extension appointment, and wake up naturally bright-eyed. The best thing about Latisse lashes? They’re approved and truly are YOUR OWN!
Latisse is only available by prescription because the main ingredient, Bimatoprost, is a drug that has been tested and approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Latisse is not classified as a cosmetic, like mascara, but rather a prescription drug. Because of this, you will need a medical professional to prescribe this product to use.
When applying Latisse, make sure your face is clean, makeup-free and contact lenses are removed. Take one of the individually packed applicator brushes and remove them from the tray. While holding the sterile applicator horizontally, place only a drop of Latisse solution on the area of the applicator closest to the tip, but not directly on the tip – you don’t want the solution to fall off! Using the applicator, immediately draw the applicator carefully along the skin at the base of the upper eyelashes, right where the eyelashes meet the skin, and go from the inner part of your lash line to the outer part.
DO NOT apply Latisse to the lower lash line, since excess hair outside of the intended treatment area may occur. Using a tissue, blot any excess solution that may have traveled past the eyelid, and dispose of the applicator after one use. Repeat this step for the opposite eyelid, and make sure to use a new, sterile applicator to help minimize any potential for contamination from one eyelid to another.
As a new Latisse patient, you will start to show fuller and lusher lashes at week four, with full eyelash results after 16 weeks of use. Once you have reached the full 16 weeks, our Doctor recommends continuing to use Latisse on a maintenance cycle of a single application per day to help keep your lashes at their fullest potential!
