Like many women (and probably a few men), you may have wished at some point to have fuller, longer eyelashes. It’s no wonder we can barely turn on the television without being bombarded with mascara commercials! Mascara is indeed a quick, temporary solution to thin, sparse eyelashes – hypotrichosis, in medical terms. But as you already know, mascara can look clumpy or sticky, it takes time to apply and remove, and it can flake and irritate your eyes. Wouldn’t it be easier if you could simply grow thick, lush eyelashes of your own?
An accidental discovery….
That’s what makes the accidental discovery of Latisse so amazing. Originally, a solution called bimatoprost was being used to treat glaucoma when patients began to report increased eyelash growth as an unexpected, but not unwelcome, side effect. Soon after, Latisse was developed and subsequently approved by the FDA to treat hypotrichosis. An accidental discovery turned into one of today’s most popular beauty tools!
Latisse doesn’t just give the illusion of fuller eyelashes, as mascara or false lashes do. The treatment actually stimulates growth of new lashes, and affects the growth cycle so that hairs grow longer and thicker than before.
A simple solution to an age-old beauty problem.
The most incredible thing about Latisse is that it’s so easy to use. Simply schedule a consultation with us, and we can prescribe the topical solution. Each night you will apply Latisse to the base of your eyelashes, much as you would apply a liquid eyeliner. In about four weeks you will start to notice new growth in your eyelashes, and after 16 weeks full growth will be achieved.
The supervision of a physician is important when using Latisse. Side effects are rare, and are usually due to interaction with other prescription medications.
Many Latisse users report feeling so satisfied with their new eyelashes that they have now discontinued the daily hassle of mascara application and removal! If you have any questions about Latisse, or want to begin treatments right away, please call our office and schedule an appointment. We offer Latisse in our Temecula location.
