Patients with inadequate eyelashes, a condition also known as eyelash hypotrichosis, can enjoy the benefits of an FDA-approved medication called Latisse.
Latisse is a treatment comprised of .03 percent bimatoprost ophthalmic solution, which can help in providing patients with longer, thicker, darker eyelashes within the course of 16 weeks. This is a prescription medication that is used once a day with special single-dose sterile applicators. It is applied to the upper eyelid at the base of the eyelashes and it naturally applies to the lower lid when patients blink and/or close their eyes. It is recommended that patients use Latisse at night before bedtime.
Patients can also use Latisse for thinning eyebrows and can speak with a professional at Seriously Skin about using this product for other areas of the body off-label. Patients are also educated on possible side effects and concerns that may occur due to use of Latisse, including darkening of the eyelid skin, hair growth on other areas, and any kind of ocular condition. Additionally, patients who are using Latisse may experience itching, redness, and dryness of the eyes, and should speak to a professional about any other problems that may develop.
Latisse is FDA-approved as both safe and effective and can be used for patients who are unhappy with the length, color, and fullness of their eyelashes or eyebrows. At Seriously Skin, we are excited to offer this medication for patients and can help decide if Latisse is right based on one’s specific needs and desires during an initial consultation visit. Patients can also take this time to learn about all the dermatological services offered through Seriously Skin including laser therapies, facials, lipolysis, injectables, and even chemical peels.
