What is Latisse and how does it works?
Latisse is the only product scientifically proven and approved by the FDA, to stimulate longer and thicker eyelash growth. Lashes continue to grow without their normal shedding process, until they’ve reached the desired length. A topical product available only by prescription, Latisse was discovered while looking for a way to stimulate eyelash growth in patients who used Lumigan, a prescription eye drop for glaucoma.
To maintain the growth and desired length, treatments must be administered 2 – 3 times per week, under the direction of a Latisse specialist, like Dr. Campano. Latisse is applied by dabbing it on the upper eyelash line each night, as it will spread to your lower lash line automatically, as you blink. You should never apply Latisse in your eye or onto your lower lid. Before Latisse is applied, your face must be clean and your makeup and contact lenses must be removed. Under a doctor’s supervision, patients have experienced growth in eyelash length, up to 25%, in as little as 16 weeks.
According to clinical studies conducted before FDA approval, Latisse eyelash lengthener is safe for most people. However, you may not be a candidate if you have certain eye problems, severe allergies or skin infections of the upper eyelids. Pregnant women should not use Latisse and women nursing, may want to wait before using it as well. To find out if you’re a candidate for Latisse, call Dr. Campano at (661) 726-6277, online at www.drcampano.com.
