Latisse New Jersey

lashesWould you like longer fuller eyelashes? Do you use eyelash extensions or mascara to create a longer and fuller look? Latisse, a topical product from the makers of Botox can do this for you. In as few as 4 weeks you will start to see an increase in fullness and length of your natural lashes. Your eyes are the first thing people notice about you. Why not make them as beautiful as possible without surgery or hours in a salon.

What is Latisse?

Latisse is a remarkable medication that can stimulate eyelash growth. Yes, it is a medication that requires a prescription although it can be dispensed by a physician. Eyelash growth was actually a side effect of this medication. Scientists at Allergan, the makers of Botox, were able to reformulate this as a topical to provide an effective way to grow your eyelashes.

How does it work?

The exact mechanism of action is unknown. Latisse keeps the lashes in the growth phase for a longer period of time. What we do know is that daily application to the upper eyelid of only one drop of Latisse stimulates fuller thicker eyelashes in as little as one month. It will continue to stimulate growth for up to 4 months. At that time the frequency of application can be reduced to every other day to maintain the improvement.

Latisse was originally packaged in 3CC bottles. It is now available in 5CC bottles that comes with its own applicators. The application process is similar to applying liquid eyeliner. You want to apply a sufficient amount to just moisten the upper lid. The most common side effect is itching which occurs in a very small number of people.

Latisse is an effective way to grow your lashes in the convenience of your home with nightly applications. The result is 100% natural and stays with you regardless of what are doing.
