What is a Latisse Prescription?

Who doesn’t dream of having long, curled lashes? Or thick and full eyebrows?  Women spend up to 10 minutes a day applying falsies or making their eyebrows look full. This can be a tedious and stressful process, especially if you are just starting with them. The process uses tweezers, mascara, lash glue, and lash curlers in order to get them to look perfect. Mascara and lash curlers are known to damage your lashes, while over tweezing can stunt hair growth. To save you some time in the morning, SDBotox recommends Latisse to their patients.

What Is Latisse?

The first thing to know about Latisse is that it is a topical medication that can be used to grow out lashes or eyebrows. Latisse was developed from a prescription drug which treats glaucoma, known as Lumigan. Participants in initial studies noticed longer and thicker lashes, which then encouraged its creators to remarket it as a beauty product.  It has been on the market since 2010 and proven to be a safe and effective method to promote hair growth.


How Does Latisse Work?

Latisse is a topical treatment medication that is applied directly to your eyelashes or eyebrows. It stimulates hair growth which leads to the longer and fuller lashes or eyebrows you’ve always wanted. The medication is only meant for the upper eyelid. In order to prevent infection never apply it inside the eye and remove contact lenses as well as any makeup that you might have on your face and lashes.

You can use it in the morning or evening whatever time is more convenient for you, let it dry and then put on your eyeliner. Latisse is the perfect product for the bride to be or the makeup enthusiast!


How Soon Do You See The Results?

Most of the Latisse users begin seeing results within 2 months. Usually, people start noticing added length by week 7. You will see improvements as long as treatments continue, however they will gradually return to their original state once treatment decreases. It is important that you apply it every night for optimal results.


What Does Latisse Cost?

At SDBotox, the cost for a 2 to 3 month supply is about $100 dollars. The cost of a 4 to 5 month supply is about $150.


Is Latisse Safe To Use?

Latisse has been proven safe for most people but if you have eye problems, allergies, or skin infections then it is not in the best interest of the patient. Pregnant or nursing women should also avoid Latisse.

If you have healthy eyes and are seeking to improve hair growth, you are a great candidate for Latisse. Usage should stop if any eye irritation or slight discoloration occurs.

Latisse is just one of the many treatments that can make you look younger! Latisse requires a prescription by an authorized doctor. You should have an appropriate consultation with a physician before starting a Latisse prescription.

Not everyone is familiar with Latisse so do visit an eye doctor, cosmetic surgeon, or a dermatologist who is knowledgeable in this field.
