Can Latisse Really Give Me Thicker Eyelashes?

Published on: April 8, 2018

Do you wish for longer, thicker natural eyelashes? While many people wear false-eyelashes to get the fuller eyelashes they desire, what if you could wake up with the eyelashes you want? Latisse is a medication that can cosmetically enhance your eyelashes, giving you thicker, longer, darker lashes for gorgeous eyes.

What is Latisse?

Hypotrichosis is the term used for thin eyelashes and Latisse is the prescription treatment for this condition. The active ingredient is bimatoprost, which is thought to help lashes grow by extending the growth cycle. This helps the lashes have the chance to grow thicker and longer, improving the appearance for those with thin or shorter lashes. Latisse is the only FDA-approved medication for treating hypotrichosis.

How You Use Latisse

Latisse is a topical solution that is applied to the upper lashes with a special applicator that is provided with the prescription. The solution is applied once per day and needs continual use to maintain results. Most people who use Latisse notice thicker or longer lashes in about four weeks, with optimal results apparent by sixteen weeks.

Latisse is a good choice for anyone who wants natural lashes that are darker, longer and thicker. When adorned with mascara, they can have a stunning effect, enhancing the beauty of the eyes. Even without makeup, Latisse-treated lashes offer a flattering outline for the eyes.

If you are interested in thickening and lengthening your lashes, Latisse may be the right treatment for you. Latisse is available through plastic surgeons, especially oculoplastic surgeons that specialize in cosmetic surgery and treatments for the eyes. Schedule an appointment with a local specialist to learn if Latisse is right for you.
