With eyelash extensions on the rise, more and more people are becoming interested in achieving longer lashes. Unfortunately, lash extensions come with the risk of eyelash loss. Those who are looking for alternatives might have heard of Latisse Eyelash Enhancer, a way to regrow lashes naturally. Here’s a little guide on how Latisse works.

What Is Latisse Eyelash Enhancer?

Latisse is a growth serum formulated to lengthen, thicken, and darken eyelashes. It contains Lumigan, a drug that was originally used to treat glaucoma. Some glaucoma patients were surprised to find that their treatment also resulted in fuller and darker lashes. Hence, the birth of a new eyelash growth serum.

Some eyelash growth serums are known to cause side effects, and the best way to avoid these issues is to make sure the product is FDA-approved. Latisse Eyelash Enhancer Serum is the only FDA-approved growth serum for eyelashes on the market.

Am I a Good Candidate for Latisse Eyelash Enhancer?

The best candidates for Latisse Eyelash Enhancer are looking for a way to regrow lost lashes or make lashes thicker, longer and darker. Candidates must be 18 years old or older.

Latisse may not be recommended for pregnant or breastfeeding women. Please wait until after childbirth and nursing before trying the product.

Do not use Latisse while you are wearing contact lenses. Remove your contact lenses before applying the drug and wait for 15 minutes before putting them back.

The applicator for Latisse is for single use only. Do not allow the applicator or the bottle to become contaminated, since this can lead to serious eye infections.

Latisse Eyelash Enhancer Results

Latisse Eyelash Enhancer conducted a clinical study that showed that the products provide significant results after six weeks. Latisse is proven to create a 106% increase in volume, a 25% increase in length, and an 18% increase in color depth.

With Latisse Eyelash Enhancer treatment, patients should see changes in their eyelashes every four weeks. Results may vary for every patient.

Are There Side Effects?

Like all treatments, Latisse can also have side effects. Since the product is applied on the upper eyelids, it may cause skin darkening around the area, hair growth outside the treatment area, or itchy and red eyes. The chance of these side effects is quite low, and only 4% of patients experience them.
