LATISSE®: Fuller, Thicker Eyelashes
LATISSE® is an FDA-approved solution for creating longer, fuller and darker eyelashes. Whether you are experiencing hypotrichosis (the loss or reduction of hair growth) or have bad habits that have thinned your lashes over time (pulling on your lashes, rubbing your eyes, sleeping in mascara, etc.) LATISSE may be a great solution for you.
How LATISSE Works
LATISSE is applied each night to the base of your upper eyelashes after removing contact lenses and cleansing the area. The medication is not applied to the lower lashes; it gradually spreads to these lashes as you blink. It may take up to 16 weeks to get the desired result, though some patients experience longer lashes in just 4 weeks. The product must be continued to maintain results.
Eyelash Consultation with VISIA®-CR Facial Imaging
Our team uses the VISIA-CR facial imaging system to analyze the length and quantity of your eyelashes. The Mirror® medical imaging software will help Dr. Alan Margolis determine if LATISSE would be an effective treatment for you.
Side Effects of LATISSE
Because LATISSE is an ophthalmic solution, it will not damage your eyesight if the solution gets into your eyes. Side effects can include redness, itching and watery eyes. The solution must be applied carefully; touching the applicator to other areas may result in unwanted hair growth. Another possible side effect of LATISSE is a possible permanent discoloration of the iris of the eye to a brown color.
Any product or solution that you use on or near your eyes should only be used with guidance from an experienced eye doctor to reduce your risks of side effects and help you achieve the results you desire.
