Long, dark, and thick eyelashes can enhance your natural beauty and draw attention to your eyes. Unfortunately, age and hormonal changes like pregnancy can cause your eyelashes to thin or fall out over time. Because many women suffer from eyelash loss, it’s not surprising that more and more people are turning to eyelash growth solutions like Latisse®.
Latisse® is a prescription treatment for hypotrichosis (inadequate or not enough lashes) to grow longer, fuller, darker eyelashes.
Am I a good candidate for Latisse®?
People who would like to improve the appearance of their eyelashes may be a good fit for Latisse®. Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding and people who suffer from severe allergies are not a good fit for Latisse®.
How many treatments are needed?
Multiple treatments are needed to maintain the results of Latisse®. The first step to starting Latisse® treatments is to set up a consultation with Dr. Talbott. If you are approved for a prescription, Dr. Talbott will show how how to apply Latisse®, and send you home with the product so that you can self-administer daily treatments. Once you’ve achieved the results you want, you may choose to maintain your results by using Latisse® every other day instead of every day.
Are there any side effects?
Latisse® should only be applied to the base of the upper lashes in order to avoid unwanted side effects. Latisse® should not be applied to the bottom lashes. Possible side effects of Latisse® include permanent darkening of the iris, eyelid skin darkening, and itchy and red eyes.
Are the results permanent?
The results of Latisse® are long-lasting but not permanent. Your lashes will gradually return to their original appearance if you stop using Latisse®.
