Some women attempt to make their eyelashes longer and fuller with mascara, but for more luxurious natural eyelashes, Latisse can provide a long-term solution. By applying this FDA-approved bimatoprost ophthalmic solution, patients can gradually grow eyelashes that are longer, fuller, and darker and even double their fullness in 16 weeks. Once lashes are long and thick, you begin a maintenance routine that uses less product. If you stop using the product, lashes return to their former state within two or three months.
Generic alternatives which have also been approved for use by the FDA are also available. The product is also effective on eyebrows, although this is not the intended use.
Latisse is only intended to be applied to the base of upper lashes and not the lower lid, as hair may grow on skin that Latisse often touches during application. Common side effects include red, itchy eyes. For those with light-colored eyes, the product may result in a permanent darkening of the iris, but this side effect is extremely rare and only occurs if, contrary to instructions, the product is put directly in the eye.
Eko Plastic Surgery offers Latisse for purchase, instructs patients in its proper use, and carefully monitors those with glaucoma or other eye problems. For information or to purchase Latisse, complete the website form below or call us at (760) 249-2222.
