Throughout history, long, dark eyelashes have defined concepts of beauty. Messy glues, irritating mascaras, and awkward lash curling tools have all been used to achieve the desired effect. Today’s innovative science has made these time-consuming and inconvenient lash-enhancing processes a thing of the past.
Latisse, formulated by Allergan, is a revolutionary new prescription that is designed to help you gain healthier, fuller, and long lasting lashes. It is clinically proven to stimulate and enhance the natural production of thicker, darker lashes that will measure up to yesterday’s false lashes and uncomfortable make-up products.
Eyelash Hypotrichosis (the medical term for lack of eyelashes) is a condition suffered by many. Unlike other over the counter solutions, Latisse works at the root of the problem. The topical ophthalmic solution is applied along the skin at the base of the upper eyelashes. After just 4 weeks of nightly application, your eyelashes will become more defined and by the 16th week you will notice remarkable, measurable results.
Latisse is FDA approved and has relatively little side effects. Some patients do report a mild redness of the eye immediately after application however this usually subsides after a short period of time. Other patients have experienced slight irritation or itching that generally lessen after a few weeks of treatment. Latisse is safe for individuals who wear contact lenses, however the application should be performed only after you have removed your lenses for the night. Results are semi-permanent and lashes will gradually return to their prior appearance over a few months once the treatment stops.
Like any other prescription medication your medical history must be evaluated before you receive Latisse. Prior to your treatment, Dr. Rivkin will consult with you to determine if you are an ideal candidate. Individuals with a history of allergies, elevated intraocular pressure, chronic eye infections, or other related conditions might not be suitably qualified.
Latisse is a proud sponsor for the Make A Wish Foundation. With every online registration Allergan will contribute funds to help fulfill the dreams of children with life threatening illnesses.
