If you want longer, fuller, and thicker lashes you aren’t alone. In the past, only artificial lash extensions were available, but now you can see naturally thicker lashes with a simple once-daily application at bedtime.
How does LATISSE® work?
LATISSE ® has the same formula as another drug, called Lumigan, manufactured by Allergan. Lumigan is a prescription eye drop medication used to treat glaucoma. Patients were reporting that one of the side effects of Lumigan was longer and fuller eyelashes, which started the development of LATISSE®. Now it is a cosmetic favorite of hundreds of men and women worldwide.
When applied to the base of the upper eyelashes once daily, LATISSE® maintains their growth phase, producing longer, thicker lashes and more of them. The effects of LATISSE® are not permanent, so patients have to continue using it or their lashes will return to normal.
Are you a Candidate?
Practically everyone over the age of 18 is a candidate for LATISSE®. Dr. Nichols or one of his team members can educate you on things you can do to improve the appearance of your eyelashes.
What to Expect
After using LATISSE® for several months, you should notice significant changes in your eyelashes. Gradually, they should become darker, thicker and longer. You should see results in approximately one month to become noticeable and full results become evident after about four months. A commonly discussed complication is darkening of the iris (the colored portion of your eye). Even in patients who use the eyedrops (Lumigan), the incidence of this is extremely low. Dr. Nichols has never seen this occur in any of his patients using LATISSE® nor has he heard of anyone that has ever seen a patient with pigment changes in their eyes due to the use of LATISSE®.
