Creating Long, Lush Lashes: LATISSE® in Stuart, FL
Not everyone is born with long lashes, but most women want them. Many women wear mascara on a daily basis in order to make their lashes look longer, darker and fuller. While mascara can do the job of giving the appearance of lush lashes, it can also clump, smear or run. LATISSE®, on the other hand actually increases lash growth. Your own lashes will become longer, fuller and darker with use.
LATISSE® is a prescribed treatment solution for inadequate or not enough lashes. It’s the first and only FDA-approved treatment for lashes growth. Before writing a prescription, Dr. Fasano will consult with you in his Stuart office to make sure LATISSE® is right for your lashes.
Bat Those Long LATISSE® Lashes
LATISSE® works gradually, not overnight. Once treatment has started, the patient must continue applying to solution each night to ensure best results. If treatment is stopped, lashes will slowly return to their previous appearance.
In the clinical trial, after four weeks of treatment, most patients saw increase in length. By week eight most started to see more fullness and a darker tint to their lashes. Patients who continued use then saw enhanced results by week 12 and full, dramatic results by week 16. Mascara will be a thing of the past!
How to Safely Use LATISSE®
Applying LATISSE® is like most beauty routines, it’s about consistency. First, ensure your face is clean by removing both makeup and contact lenses. Take a new applicator brush from the case and apply a drop of the LATISSE® solution near the tip of the brush. Next, draw the brush across the area where the eyelashes meet the skin. Then remove any excess solution beyond the eyelid by blotting it away with a tissue. Then throw away the applicator, grab a new one, and repeat the process on the other eye.
The solution should not be applied to the lower lashes; only apply to the upper lashes. Remember to only use sterile applicators when applying LATISSE®. To decrease the risk of infection, ensure that the tip of the bottle and the applicator never touch any unintended surfaces. Touching either the bottle tip or the applicator to any other surface can contaminate it with bacteria and lead to infection or irritation.
