It doesn’t seem fair. As we age our hair gets thinner, our eyelashes start to thin and growth slows. All while our middle starts to grow faster and get thicker. We would all love a magic potion that instantly reduces the thickness of our middle and increases the thickness of our eyelashes. Fortunately, there is LATISSE®. It is not a magic potion, but the results can make you think it is. LATISSE® is an FDA-approved prescription treatment for inadequate or not enough lashes (hypotrichosis). The solution is used to grow eyelashes, making them longer, thicker and darker.
The professionals at Denver Vein Center and Aesthetic Laser Specialists have been helping people with cosmetic treatments such as LATISSE® for many years. Their experienced team can help you look and feel like you best self. Let them help you reverse the ravages of time and regain the long, lush lashes of your youth.
LATISSE® is only available by prescription so you’ll need to talk with a doctor to see if it is right for you. The solution is a once-nightly treatment applied to the base of your upper eyelashes as instructed by your doctor. The results are gradually visible with more length in a little as four weeks and full growth in 16 weeks. You are not imagining things. This is real lash growth.
The active ingredient bimatoprost makes lash growth possible. It is believed to affect the growth phase of the eyelash hair cycle in two ways. It increases both the length of the growth phase and the number of hairs in the active growth phase.
You should know that if you use or have used prescription products for eye pressure problems it is important to tell you doctor and use LATISSE® under their care. It has been known to cause increased brown pigmentation of the iris which is likely permanent. Darkening of the eyelid skin may occur and may be reversible. You should only apply the product at the base of the upper lashes and never to the lower lid. Common side effects are itchy and red eyes. If discontinued, lashes will gradually return to their previous state.
