“I don’t sell Latisse to others..my eyelashes do.”—Sally Hayes
If you want longer, fuller and darker lashes then Latisse might be a solution for you. This is why Sally uses it herself and why she proudly and passionately recommends it to all of her permanent makeup clients as a cosmetic solution for enhancing the appearance of their eyes.
Even though you may have never heard of Hypotrichosis, you could still have this condition. Hypotrichosis is an eyelash condition that consists of abnormal hair patterns, mainly through a loss or reduction of the lash hairs. If you find yourself wishing for longer and fuller eyelashes, you’re not alone.
LATISSE solution (Bimatoprost Ophthalmis Solution) 0.03% in indicated as a prescription treatment. Based on my years of experience, Latisse is clearly proven to be the best solution available on the market for growing longer, fuller and darker eyelashes.
The active ingredient in LATISSE (Bimatoprost) was first approved by the FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) in 2001 as a medical product to be used for treating certain eye problems, namely lowering intraocular pressure for patients with open-angle glaucoma or ocular hypertension. As a result of treatment with this product, doctors and researchers quickly realized some results they did not anticipate. Researchers noticed surprising improvement in the growth of the eyelashes of patients who were taking this drug. This unexpected discovery led to the vision and birth of LATISSE as a stand-alone product.
LATISSE is designed for use as a once daily prescription treatment. You simply apply it at the base of your upper eyelashes. It is not recommended apply to your lower eyelids / eyelash area. There is the distinct possibility of hair growth in any skin area touched frequently by the LATISSE solution.
What you can expect
You may not have to wait too long to see results. You can expect to see years of frustration fade away fairly quickly. According to Allergan, the maker of LATISSE, (and other products including Botox, Lumigan and Refresh), patients using this product can expect to experience longer, thicker, fuller and darker eyelashes in as few as eight weeks. You can expect to see full results in about 16 weeks. Many of my permeant makeup clients report experiencing desired results in less time.
Once your eyelashes reach their maximum growth potential, I will help you create a successful maintenance program using LATISSE so you can keep the longer, fuller, darker eyelashes you always dreamed of having. Otherwise, if for some reason you choose to discontinue use of the product, usually within a period of weeks your eyelashes will gradually go back to looking like they did before you started treatment.
Check with your doctor to see if LATISSE solution is right for you. If you are using or have used any medical prescription products for treating eye pressure problems, it is recommended to only use LATISSE under close doctor supervision. Use of this product may cause an increase in brown pigmentation of the colored part of the eye which can be permanent. If you happen to develop or experience any eye problems or undergo eye surgery, be sure to consult your doctor immediately about your LATISSE use. The most common side effects after the use of LATISSE are eye redness and/or itchy eyes. If use of this product is discontinued, your eyelashes will gradually return to their previous appearance prior to treatment.
