Most medications either fall into the category of health or cosmetic. It is rare when a product can be used for both purposes. An example of a product that falls into this category is Latisse®. This is an amazing product that basically pulls double duty for those who are suffering with glaucoma to help with their intraocular pressure, and it is also used by those who are concerned about the length and thickness of their eyelashes.
There are a lot of questions that people have about Latisse®. First, they want to know if it is effective. Second, they want to know if the product is safe. Thankfully, the resounding answer to both questions is yes.
To get the most benefit out of Latisse®, you’ll need to closely follow the instructions that you received from our doctor. Accurately following these instructions drastically minimizes the chances of any negative side effects. When you use this unique product properly, you ensure that you are getting the results that you expect.
On its own, the active ingredient in Latisse® is an acid that interacts with your body similarly to the way a hormone would interact. When the product is used to treat glaucoma, it lowers the pressure in your eye. However, when it is used to grow your eyelashes, it functions slightly differently.
When applying this product and to get the most benefit out of it, it is important that you wash your hands and face. Any makeup that you have on your face needs to be removed. The solution should only be applied at night, and it should only be applied near the roots of your upper eyelid. The product will prompt your lashes to grow longer and thicker during the natural hair growth cycle.
This product is designed to be used on your upper eyelashes. When you blink, it will spread to your lower eyelashes, which is why you won’t have to worry about applying it there. However, the primary benefit is often seen on the upper lashes.
The results you will see with Latisse® take place over the long haul. You should expect to see results in the first two months. As long as you keep using the product, you should continue to benefit from its effects.
The FDA approved this product for use in 2008, so it has almost a decade of use under FDA approval. Latisse® is the perfect way for you to achieve longer and fuller eyelashes. It is safe, easy to apply and effective. We can provide you with more information about this innovative product at Ambiance MD in Green Bay. Contact us today to learn more!
