If you have long wanted thicker eyelashes, you may have looked at your options carefully. Mascara can help, but even the best only accentuates what you have. Fake eyelashes can be a nuisance to apply, sometimes look unnatural, and can fall off at the wrong moment. Eyelash extensions can be expensive, take a long time to apply, and fall off too soon. Instead, consider the newly FDA-approved LATISSE®, which encourages the growth of your own eyelashes.
If you would like to learn more about this exciting, nonsurgical option that allows you to grow thicker, longer lashes, please call or email the Carter Eye Center in Dallas, Texas.
In order to get FDA approval, LATISSE® had to undergo several clinical trials to show that it was both safe and effective. In trials it was shown that using LATISSE® can lead to a significant increase in the thickness and length of eyelashes. Although individual results can be expected to vary, about 78% of participants saw a significant increase in the prominence of their lashes. Overall, lashes were 25% longer, 106% fuller, and 18% darker.
LATISSE® is simple to use. All you do is use the included applicators to put LATISSE® at the base of your upper eyelids daily. Results will begin to appear gradually over the next few weeks, and by 16 weeks, you should reach full results. LATISSE® is believed to work by affecting the growth phase of the eyelash by increasing its length and stimulating more follicles to be in this phase. The exact chemistry is currently unknown.
Like BOTOX® Cosmetic, the discovery of LATISSE® was a happy accident. The main ingredient in LATISSE® was originally used as a glaucoma medicine, but researchers noticed that patients using the eye drops grew longer, thicker, and darker lashes over the course of treatment.
LATISSE® is a unique product, the only one FDA-approved to increase the thickness, length, and darkness of your lashes. If you would like to learn more about this exciting new option for getting the eyelashes you desire, please contact the Carter Eye Center in Dallas, Texas today.
