Having long, dark eyelashes can give your eyes a beautiful appearance. Many people suffer from a condition known as hypotrichosis, however, which is the medical term for thinning lashes. If your eyelashes are thinner than they once were, you can now do something about it with Latisse. Latisse is a FDA-approved treatment that can help you get the full, beautiful lashes you desire.
Latisse must be prescribed by a doctor. To use Latisse, simply apply the ointment to the base of your upper lashes using the enclosed sterile applicator. The process is simple and painless, and you should apply it twice a day for maximum effect. Bimaprost, a medicine that is often prescribed to treat glaucoma, is the active ingredient in Latisse. Doctors began to notice that Bimaprost caused eyelash growth, so they formulated Latisse for this purpose.
You will begin to see a difference in your eyelashes after using Latisse for about eight weeks. After sixteen weeks, you will see the full results of Latisse. For many patients who regularly use false eyelashes, it can be a freeing experience. Remember, you must continue to use it to maintain your eyelash growth. If you stop using it, your eyelashes will once again begin to thin.
