Long, dark, thick eyelashes are every woman's dream and are a sign of youthfulness. Most women view mascara as their favorite cosmetic for the same reason. Besides, in the global cosmetic market, a large sum of money is spent every year on eyelash curlers, mascara, eyelash extensions, etc., to have full, dark eyelashes. However, these methods offer only a temporary solution and may even cause eyelashes to become dry when used regularly.
If your lashes are very sparse, here is a welcome reprieve - Goldcoast Medspa offers a solution - Latisse, the only FDA-approved eyelash growth treatment. After carefully evaluating their condition, Dr. Kamran Heydarpour prescribes Latisse for patients with thin eyelashes if he deems Latisse is right for them.
A prescription eyelash treatment, Latisse is a topical application of bimatoprost. They are to be applied at the base of the eyelashes once a day using FDA-approved sterile applicators. Users of Latisse treatment often experience improvement in their eyelash growth starting at eight weeks with maximum results of longer, thicker, darker lashes at 12 to 16 weeks.
As per various clinical studies, those who used Latisse treatment for 16 weeks had the below given average results:
- 25 percent longer eyelashes
- 106 percent thicker and fuller eyelashes
- 18 percent darker eyelashes
How Does Latisse Work?
The major active ingredient of Latisse is bimatoprost. It works by influencing the growth (anagen) phase of the eyelash hair cycle in multiple ways - by extending the time length that eyelash hairs stay in this phase and by increasing the number of hairs in this growth phase.
How Long Do Latisse Results Last?
The complete results of Latisse treatment are visible after 12-16 weeks. It is important to continue applying Latisse every day to maintain its results. If the Latisse application is discontinued, the eyelashes will slowly return to their earlier appearance.
How To Get Started With Latisse?
Latisse is a prescription-based treatment. So, the first step to getting started with the treatment is to visit Dr. Kamran Heydarpour for a consultation. Though most people are ideal candidates for eyelash growth treatment, Dr. Heydarpour will evaluate the patient for conditions like eye infections or sore eyelids. Besides, bimatoprost is not advised for those with ocular pressure issues.
