Love Your Lashes with Latisse
Long, luscious eyelashes are very on-trend these days, and while people have been turning to quick fixes like extensions and tints, why not invest in a long-term solution like Latisse?
Clients with hypotrichosis (thin, short and light lashes) can take advantage of this miracle product at Barry Lycka MD & Associates.
What It Is
Latisse is a prescription eyelash product that has been developed to increase the length of your eyelashes over a period of 12-16 weeks.
According to Dr. Steve Yoelin, Ophthalmologist, this product was developed from an existing product that revealed lash growth as a side effect of treating elevated intraocular pressure (IOP). People who used the existing medication noticed that their eyelashes were becoming progressively longer, thicker and darker over time.
This discovery lead to a study by Allergan that focused on the medication’s active ingredient, bimatoprost, and its lash-growing properties. Eventually Latisse was approved by the FDA in 2008.
How It Works
Everyone’s eyelashes go through a growth cycle phase until they eventually shed to make room for new ones. The idea of Latisse is that it prolongs this growth stage to allow for longer, higher-volume lashes. Simply add this formula to your nightly skin care routine and apply it along the lash lines before heading to bed.
What to Expect
Clients typically see results in as little as eight weeks, at which point you should start to notice naturally fuller and longer eyelashes. In a clinical study, clients that used the product experienced:
- 25% increase in lash length
- 106 % increase in lash thickness/fullness
- 18% increase in lash darkness
These statistics prove the effectiveness of doctor-prescribed Latisse, which is why we trust this product at Barry Lycka MD & Associates.
