What is

Latisse?

Between mascara and eyelash extensions, women everywhere put a lot of effort into achieving long, full lashes because they exude femininity and make the eyes appear bright and refreshed. Why opt for extremely temporary solutions that smudge or fall out when you can go right to the source and enhance your own natural lashes? Latisse® is an FDA-approved treatment for making eyelashes grow longer and thicker using the active ingredient bimatoprost ophthalmic solution, which is also used to treat glaucoma. It appears to thicken the eyelashes by increasing the number of hairs that are in the growth phase at any one time and lengthen them by prolonging this growth phase. Latisse® is available by prescription at Premiere Surgical Arts.

Considerations

Latisse® is very safe, however, people with certain eye conditions or those allergic to the active ingredient bimatoprost should avoid the product. At your consultation, Dr. Jung will determine if Latisse® is right for you.

You’ll receive a prescription for Latisse® and apply it each night with a special applicator to the base of your upper eyelids. Dr. Jung will give you instructions for application and you’ll want to use it carefully and blot away any excess solution so it only comes into contact with the treatment area. Don’t use it on your lower eyelid line. You can expect to see results within eight weeks with full results apparent in 16 weeks.

It’s a temporary solution for creating longer, thicker eyelashes and for sustained eyelash growth you’ll need to apply it daily. Once you stop using Latisse®, your eyelashes will gradually return to how they were pre-treatment – usually within a week to a couple of months. In rare cases, itchy eyes, redness or hyperpigmentation of the eye can occur. Call Dr. Jung if you have any concerns or experience a reaction.
