Achieve Longer, More Luscious Lashes with Latisse

Have you ever wanted to have longer, darker eyelashes like the actresses in Hollywood films, the kind that would sweep beautifully over your cheekbones to add drama and glamour to your look? The truth is, many women in films wear false eyelashes, which can be a pain to put on and take off every day. 

But what if we told you there’s a safe and effective option that can make your real lashes fuller, longer, and darker? There is, and it’s called LatisseⓇ. 

Here at Lowcountry Plastic Surgery Center, we offer Latisse to our patients who want to accent their eyelashes. Dr. Jack Hensel Jr. wants you to know more about this amazing option for longer, thicker lashes. Here’s more about how Latisse can help you get the dramatic look you want without the hassle of using false eyelashes. 

What Latisse is and how it works

The FDA approved Latisse in 2008 as an aesthetic treatment to promote the growth of longer, fuller, and darker lashes. Just like with the hairs that grow on your head, your eyelashes grow and fall out over time. Latisse actually helps to lengthen the amount of time your eyelashes spend on your eyelids as well as increasing their length, pigmentation, and fullness. 

Not much is actually known about why Latisse creates this effect, as it was discovered when the drug was being utilized to treat glaucoma, according to All About Vision. However, many people have used the product in the decade since it was approved, and a number of celebrities, like Brooke Shields and Christina Hendricks, have also endorsed Latisse.

The efficacy of Latisse

You might be wondering how effective Latisse really is. The product can be applied at home and is meant to be used on the upper lid every night before bed. Those who follow this routine start to see impressive results in about two months.

Those who participated in a study found that the darkness of their lashes had increased by 18%, the thickness by 106%, and the length by 25%. 

Every medicine has its own side effects, so it is important to be aware of the benefits and drawbacks of Latisse before you begin treatment. People who have certain eye conditions should avoid using Latisse, and it’s important to avoid getting it in your eyes. Pregnant and nursing women are also discouraged from using this product. When you come in to see Dr. Hensel Jr., he can discuss whether or not you’re a candidate for Latisse.

Why we recommend using Latisse over fake eyelashes

Latisse is a more permanent solution to the problem of light, sparse, or short eyelashes. It doesn’t require the use of fake lashes that you have to put on and take off every day, but is just a simple dab of the product every night before bed. Over time, Latisse allows you to have the look and lashes you desire without forcing you to wear false lashes. 

Latisse strengthens the look of your own eyelashes. It’s not a product that replaces the lashes, but makes them look healthier, darker, and longer.
