Long eyelashes are to be envied. Some women are blessed with them; others need a little help. As women age, lashes tend to grow thinner, shorter, and lose their natural color.
There is help for those with inadequate lashes. Latisse® is an FDA approved prescription solution for the treatment of hypotrichosis (insufficient eyelashes). It is believed that Latisse® works by increasing the length of the growth phase of the eyelash hair cycle, and that it increases the actual number of lashes that grow during this phase. The effects of Latisse® are gradual, but studies show that lashes may more than double in fullness after 16 weeks. Application of the product is easy and safe. The treatment is not for use on the lower eyelid.
Latisse® is available by prescription only. As with all prescription medications, there are restrictions and possible side effects. Prescriptions are available after an in-office consultation.
