Thick, dark lashes frame your eyes beautifully. If your lashes are pale or skimpy, this non-invasive treatment could be ideal. Latisse is a topical liquid applied at the lash line. It is available only by prescription from a doctor. The formulation was originally developed to treat glaucoma by reducing eye pressure. Today, Latisse is FDA-approved for eyelash growth in individuals who have inadequate lashes.
A simple nightly application of this bimatoprost ophthalmic solution creates remarkable change, with full results in about four months. Initially, you will notice increased lash length. Gradually, lashes become thicker and darker. By week eight, change is obvious, and continued use for 16 weeks ensures results. Dr. Shukla will then talk with you about the benefits of ongoing use to maintain your attractive new look.
The safety and effectiveness of Latisse have been researched extensively in the United States. In recent studies, 78 percent of treated participants experienced significant increase in eyelash prominence:
- Length – 25 percent longer
- Fullness – 106 percent thicker
- Darkness – 18 percent darker
While Latisse is well-tolerated, as with any medication, there are risks of side effects. Some patients (only about four percent) develop an itchy sensation, dryness, or redness of the eyes. Darkening of skin at the lash line may also occur.
In the 1930s, Albert Ducray, the visionary son of a dermatologist, marketed the first dermo-cosmetic shampoos. These formulations were designed to improve the condition of different hair types. Ducray shampoos are still recommended by high-end spas, stylists, and dermatologists.
