Latisse is a prescription-only solution that has been proven to stimulate the growth of eyelashes. Within two to four months, your eyelashes can become longer and thicker. Latisse is safe and is the only FDA approved treatment for growing eyelashes. Latisse is applied daily with disposable brushes which are included with the product. Latisse is gently applied along the base of the upper eyelashes. After three or four months, Latisse can be used much less frequently to maintain longer, thicker lashes. Latisse can also be used to enhance the growth of your eyebrows.
Today’s woman has numerous choices for enhancing the appearance of their eyelashes. Mascara consists of waxes, pigments, and resins that are effectively used to lengthen, thicken, and darken eyelashes. These effects are temporary and smudging is an ever-present problem. Also popular today are artificial eyelashes and eyelash extensions. These can remain in place on the eyelids from several days to several weeks. Adhesives are used to hold the artificial eyelashes in place. They are removed using solvents which can cause irritation and/or allergic reactions. Another, more aggressive treatment is eyelash hair transplantation. With this method, hair follicles are grafted (transferred) from the scalp onto the eyelids. Imagine how much easier it will now be to simply apply Latisse solution to the base of the eyelashes and within several months see them become longer, thicker, and darker.
Eyelashes also have functions that are more than simply aesthetic. They defend the eye against dust and other debris that could land on its surface. By triggering the blink reflex, eyelashes protect the eyes from many forms of airborne particles.
There are approximately 100 to 150 eyelashes on each upper eyelid. The growth of eyelashes is cyclical, going through 3 stages: a growth phase, a transition phase, and a resting phase. At any given time, numerous hair follicles can be found in each of the different stages. The growth phase of an average eyelash hair is approximately 1 to 2 months. Latisse has been shown to increase the amount of time each eyelash hair remains in the growing phase. The application of Latisse has also been scientifically proven to increase the thickness of eyelash hair as well as the darkness of each hair. This is most likely due to an increased production of pigment within each hair follicle. Typically, within 4 months of application, Latisse can increase the length, thickness, and darkness of eyelashes and improve all the traits that are associated with greater prominence and overall attractiveness of the eyelashes.
On a more personal note, ten years ago Dr. Schwartz’ wife lost all of her eyelashes due to allergies which did not regrow. After using Latisse for approximately one year, she has now regrown many of her eyelashes.
