If eyes are the window to the soul, what are eyelashes? While eyelashes function to protect our eyes from dirt and dust, they are often associated with beauty. With daily treatment of Latisse over a 4-week period, your eyelashes can grow thicker, fuller, and longer than you thought possible! Its formula is also gentle enough for sensitive eyes and won’t cause any irritation or burning sensation when applied correctly.
Latisse is a prescription-strength eye drop solution containing bimatoprost, which is a prostaglandin analog used to treat glaucoma. It has been clinically proven to be effective in growing longer, fuller, and darker eyelashes. In fact, clinical studies have shown that using Latisse for 4 weeks can result in up to 25% longer lashes. The active ingredient bimatoprost works by increasing the length of the growth cycle, resulting in longer, thicker, and darker lashes.
Latisse works by increasing the number of hairs in the growth phase while extending their duration in this phase. As a result, your lashes will become fuller and longer over time with regular use. During your session, your physician will apply Latisse directly to your upper lash line on both eyes. For best results, it should be used once daily at night before bedtime.
There are many benefits of Latisse, which is why it has become one of the most popular treatments for those looking to improve the appearance of their eyelashes. Latisse is a prescription medication that contains bimatoprost, a synthetic form of prostaglandin. When applied to the base of the upper lashes, Latisse works by lengthening, thickening, and darkening the lashes over time. In clinical trials, 78% of participants saw an improvement in lash length in as few as 4 weeks, while 65% saw an improvement in lash thickness and darkness. Latisse is also FDA-approved to treat hypotrichosis (inadequate or not enough eyelashes), making it a safe and effective option for those who want to improve the look of their eyelashes.
This treatment is performed at home but can also be performed in-office. During your session, your SKIN FIVE provider will apply Latisse directly to your upper lash line on both eyes using sterile applicators. To avoid any adverse reactions or potential eye infections, it’s important that you don’t touch the applicator tip directly with your fingers or any other surface after it has contacted your eye area.
After applying one drop to each eye with an applicator brush, gently press down on the inner corner of each eye with a clean tissue or cotton swab so that the solution spreads evenly around each lash line before going to bed each night. Your results should begin to appear within four weeks with full results seen after 4 weeks of continual use.
Treatment is done at home. Latisse should be applied only directly to the upper eyelid, not the lower. There is the potential for hair growth to occur in areas where Latisse solution comes in repeated contact with skin surfaces. SKIN FIVE recommends that Latisse be applied only to the skin of the upper eyelid margin at the base of the eyelashes.
Latisse should be applied every day and will continue working as long as it’s applied. It may take up to 4 weeks to see results from daily use of Latisse. Once treatment ends, the patient’s eyelashes will gradually return to their original appearance before receiving the Latisse eyelash treatment. Although individual results may vary, Latisse is the first and only prescription treatment approved by the FDA for inadequate or not having enough eyelashes, growing them longer, fuller and darker.
Anyone desiring longer, thicker, and darker eyelashes can benefit from Latisse. With regular applications along the lash line of the upper eyelids, patients may see eyelash improvements as long as they continue to use the medication. If you are using, or have used, prescription products for any eye pressure problems, only use Latisse under close supervision from your provider. Your SKIN FIVE provider will schedule a consultation with you to discuss these concerns and determine if Latisse is right for you.

Even when prescribed and applied as recommended, side effects can occur. However, most of these side effects are temporary. Common side effects include itchy and red eyes and darkening eyelids. These symptoms are expected to subside when use is terminated. If Latisse is applied improperly, it can run down from the treatment area and cause unwanted hair growth.
