Latisse is best used to help with inadequate lashes by helping with growth, thickness, and darkness. It is a medication called prostaglandin analogs and will need to be used for 2 months to notice a difference. While this isn’t permanent, when you stop using the medication, your lashes will return to their original condition. It is a clear solution and only requires one drop per eye per day. Latisse can benefit people with medical conditions that lead to hair loss or injury. It is important to not skip or miss a dose nor should you double up on a dosage. Applying Latisse is easy, first, wash your hands, remove the sterile applicator from the tray, draw the applicator across the skin of the upper eyelid margin, apply the solution evenly starting at the inner part of the lash and moving out, blot any access off, using a new applicator do the same process to the other eye.
LATISSE was never intended to provide fast and immediate results. Instead, the use of LATISSE can take on average up to two months to start showcasing thicker, longer, and darker eyelashes, with the full results of the LATISSE product not coming through until months three to four. If you want to see the full results that LATISSE has to offer, you will need to continuously apply the eyelash serum on the upper eyelid each evening before bed. There is no need to apply the lash serum to the lower lashes, as each time you blink, the serum will directly be applied to the lower lash area, allowing the lower lash line to also see results.
Once you have reached the full potential of your lash growth with the LATISSE serum, your doctor may have you gradually decrease your usage from each night to every other night. It is highly recommended you follow your physicians’ instructions for the medication because if you try to increase the dosage or change the way it was intended to be used, it will change the intended use for it, and can cause issues or be ineffective.
There are several risk factors when using Latisse, darkening of eyelids and irises lowering intraocular pressure, and exacerbating irritation, it has also caused damage to the nerve leading to vision loss. You will need to be careful when applying as it may cause more hair growth in that area. If you have contact lenses you will need to be careful as soaking into the lenses, can reduce IOP and mask glaucoma. It hasn’t been tested on pregnant women, because of these risk factors it is best to speak with a doctor and get a prescription.
While the generic version of Latisse is comparatively cheaper it is not covered by insurance and therefore, would be all out of pocket. Latisse is considered cosmetic and not deemed medically necessary.
