Latisse® is considered by some to be a wonder drug. It lets individuals who have very thin, light and sparse eyelashes to naturally have eyelashes that are thick, long and dark. Many who have used this product have been able to throw away their mascara and false eyelashes. However, before anyone can begin to receive the benefits that come from using Latisse®, they may wonder if they actually qualify to use the product.
Because this is a prescription medication, it is important to understand if you are a good candidate. Our doctor will examine your overall health, talk about your goals in wanting longer and darker eyelashes and then prescribe the medication if it is right for you. So what makes a good Latisse® candidate?
To start, you should be in good general health and have reasonable expectations. When you come in for your consultation, we can help you get a good idea of what Latisse® can do for you. Many patients have seen fantastic results with this product. This is a long-term treatment, and you will see your eyelashes gradually grow longer and darker over time.
Typically, people start to notice eyelash growth after about four weeks. However, if you start seeing results at this point, don’t stop or slow down your treatment; your lashes aren’t done growing! Patients will generally receive the most dramatic results after 16 weeks of daily use. If you would like to keep using Latisse® after 16 weeks, we can let you know what steps to take.
To be a good candidate for Latisse®, you should also have the desire to improve the appearance of your eyelashes. If your eyelashes are naturally very thin and short, the product can make them noticeably longer, thicker and darker. So if you would like to improve your eyelashes and your facial appearance, this product may be right for you.
If you wear contact lenses, you can still qualify for Latisse® treatment. We will give you instructions on how to use the product when wearing contact lenses.
If you no longer want to rely on mascara, false lashes or eyelash extensions to get the look you want, consider Latisse®. We will be happy to explain how it works and tell you what it can do for you. We will set you on the road to having longer, darker fuller eyelashes with the help of this product.
