Latisse® Eyelash Growth
Latisse stimulates eyelash growth and eliminates the need for eyelash extensions, giving patients longer, fuller, darker lashes in just a few months. We now carry the drug at our Oahu surgery practice and our patients love it!
When applied regularly to the base of the eyelashes, Latisse keeps lashes in a perpetual growth phase. You just apply it once daily like eyeliner, along the lash line. There are special applicators included with Latisse, so the process is very simple. The cosmetic effect may take a few weeks to become noticeable and it isn’t permanent; if you stop applying Latisse, your eyelashes return to normal.
During research of Latisse, doctors reported on average:
- 25% increase in eyelash length
- 106% increase in eyelash fullness
- 18% darkening of the eyelashes
Who Should Consider Latisse?
Good candidates for Latisse are dissatisfied with the length of their eyelashes due to hypotrichosis, i.e. inadequate eyelashes. Candidates should also be healthy and have no associated allergies or eye problems. Risks of Latisse include itchiness, redness, and hyperpigmentation.
