With age, it is common for eyelashes to become thinner, shorter, and lighter in color. Latisse is an FDA-approved prescription that is formulated to treat inadequate or not enough eyelashes, also called hypotrichosis. Latisse helps keep eyelashes in their growth phase which will result in longer, darker, and thicker lashescombating the effects of time.
It is recommended that individuals use Latisse for 16 weeks to achieve the best and most desired results, however great results can be noticed in as little as 6 weeks. Latisse conducted a clinical study among 278 women from ages 21-78 who used the product for 16 weeks. This study proved that 25% of women has longer lashes, 106% had fuller lashes, and 18% had darker lashes. Over 77% of all of the participants had an increase in overall eyelash prominence, this includes length, fullness, and darkness! TIPS FOR GETTING THE MOST OUT OF YOUR LATISSE
In order to get the best results, it is important to stick to a routine. Latisse is to be applied once daily during your nightly routine. Try to fit in in after you have washed your face and before you brush your teeth before bed. Another way to keep a routine is to store Latisse near your other daily skin care products so you wont forget to apply it. This consistency will pay off!
Another tip towards great lashes is to have patience! Latisse takes time to work. It is recommended that it is used for 16 weeks to achieve the best results. However, using Latisse more than once a day wont contribute to eyelash growth. You can track your progress by taking pictures throughout the weeks (week 0, week 4, week 8, etc). You will see results in length by week 8, but its vital to continue applications through week 16 to get the results you desire. Having your own gallery of before and after pictures will help keep you motivated to stick to your routine.
It is important that you are applying Latisse in the right manner. Be sure to apply to a face clean of any makeup or dirt from the day. Following the directions carefully, Latisse should be applied using the provided sterile, disposable applicators at the base of the upper eyelashes.
