History of Latisse
Latisse is a medication that is used to treat hypotrichosis, a condition that causes inadequate or thin eyelashes. The active ingredient in Latisse is bimatoprost, which was initially developed as a glaucoma medication.
In the early 2000s, doctors and patients began to notice that bimatoprost had a side effect of promoting eyelash growth. This led to the development of Latisse, which was approved by the FDA in 2008 for the treatment of hypotrichosis.
Latisse is applied to the base of the upper eyelashes once a day using a special applicator. Over time, the medication helps to lengthen and thicken the eyelashes, resulting in a fuller, more dramatic look.
Today, Latisse is a popular cosmetic treatment that is used by many people to enhance the appearance of their eyelashes. It is available by prescription only and should be used under the guidance of a healthcare professional.
Latisse has been proven to stimulate the growth of eyelashes. Within two to four months, your eyelashes can become longer and thicker, helping you to look and feel your best. Latisse is safe and is the only FDA-approved treatment for growing eyelashes. Latisse is applied daily with disposable brushes which are included with the product. It is then gently applied along the base of the upper eyelashes. While the initial treatments happen more often, after three or four months, Latisse can be used much less frequently to maintain longer, thicker lashes. Latisse can also be used to enhance the growth of your eyebrows. If you are looking to grow your eyelashes, reach out to Evergreen Laser and Medspa today.
Why Treat Your Thinning Lashes?
Aesthetics: Thick, full lashes are often considered a sign of beauty and can enhance a person's overall appearance. Thinning lashes can detract from this appearance and make a person feel self-conscious.
Protection: Eyelashes play an important role in protecting the eyes from dirt, dust, and other particles that can cause irritation or infection. Thinning lashes may not provide adequate protection, making a person more vulnerable to eye problems.
Sensitivity: The eyelashes contain nerve endings that are sensitive to touch, which helps to trigger the blink reflex. Thinning lashes may not be as sensitive, which can affect the blink reflex and lead to dry eyes or other eye problems.
Aging: As people age, their eyelashes may naturally thin or become brittle. This can be a sign of aging and can make a person feel older than they are.
