Is Latisse Right for Me?

Latisse® is a product that can be used to help you grow longer, thicker and darker eyelashes. It is the only product that has been approved by the FDA to help eyelashes (and eyebrows!) grow longer and thicker. While there are other products on the market that claim to enhance your eyelashes, these are usually just conditioners. Latisse® is the only product that is able to actually help you grow your eyelashes naturally.

Multiple studies have been done on Latisse®, and each one has proven that it can make the eyelashes longer. It can also double their thickness and make them darker. This is usually what women try to achieve using mascara or false eyelashes. However, when Latisse® is applied on the lash line, a person can get all of the benefits that come from using mascara or false eyelashes without needing to apply any of these products or going through the hassle that is usually associated with these things. After 2-3 weeks of usage, eyelashes begin to grow longer. After 6 weeks, thickening of the lashes is noticed.

Another great thing about this product is that a person does not have to worry about the bonding agents or the chemicals that are contained in false eyelashes and in mascara. The active ingredient in Latisse® is a well-known medication that has been used for years for an eye condition called glaucoma. Longer, thicker lashes was noticed as a “side-effect” in patients using this medication and it was then used as a cosmetic agent as well.

If you are interested in having longer, thicker and darker eyelashes, you may be wondering if Latisse® is right for you. The very best way for you to find out is to schedule a consultation at our office, Torrey Pines Dermatology & Laser Center, in La Jolla. Most patients benefit greatly from using this product on a regular basis and are able to maintain longer, thicker lashes.

If it is determined that Latisse® is right for you by your provider at Torrey Pines Dermatology & Laser Center, you will be given instructions on how to use the product. Using a small brush (that comes with the product), a small amount of Latisse® will be applied to your lash line being careful not to drip too much into the eye itself. Although not FDA approved on the eyebrows, clinical experience has shown us that eyebrow hair also becomes longer and thicker with regular use of this product.

Latisse® is an amazing product that has been able to help individuals enjoy longer and thicker eyelashes. Many of our patients have been able to throw away false eyelashes and mascara thanks to this prescription. Schedule a consultation at Torrey Pines Dermatology & Laser Center in La Jolla to find out if Latisse® is right for you. We happily serve clients in the San Diego and surrounding areas.
