If you have trouble keeping your eyelashes long, full and attractive, you’re not alone. SeaMist MedSpa can rejuvenate your lashes and give you the look you desire.
At SeaMist, in South Kingstown, we offer clients from Rhode Island and beyond the latest and most effective method to improve the look of your lashes: Latisse.
Interest in Latisse has grown since the product first came on the scene. It is a hugely popular product with our clients and is approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to treat inadequate eyelashes, making them thicker, longer, darker and fuller.
Latisse is a growth treatment that combats hypotrichosis, – the presence of thin, or not enough, eyelashes. It is the only FDA-approved technique that testing has proven grows lashes effectively. It’s available by prescription, so contact SeaMist MedSpa today to learn more, and find out whether you are a candidate to take advantage of the benefits Latisse can bring.
What is Latisse?
Latisse is a nightly treatment that you apply to the base of your upper
eyelashes. Let SeaMist show you how to begin your treatment regimen. Results occur gradually – but you will love what you see.
You should start to see longer lashes in about a month and reach full growth potential in about 16 weeks. It’s not an illusion, it’s actual growth of your lashes.
How It Works
Latisse promotes eyelash growth with its active ingredient, known as bimatoprost. Although precisely how it works is unknown, researchers believe Latisse has a twofold impact on the growth phase of your eyelash hair cycle. Initially, Latisse lengthens the first growth phase. Then, it increases the amount of hairs produced during this phase.
Latisse was developed by Allergan. In 2001, Allergan produced medicated eye drops to help treat those with high intraocular pressure. Many people who tried the medication discovered they were growing longer, darker and fuller lashes during treatment.
This side effect led researchers to examine the medication’s main ingredient, bimatoprost, and whether it could effectively grow lashes. After clinical trials, Latisse gained FDA approval in late 2008.
If you take prescription medicines for eye pressure problems, speak with a doctor about using Latisse. It can cause an increase in brown pigmentation of the colored portion of your eye – and can be permanent. Darkening of eyelid skin also can occur, but can be reversed.
Apply Latisse only at the base of upper lashes. Don’t apply the product to lower lids. You may see hair grow on skin that comes in contact with Latisse. If you suffer from eye problems or have had eye surgery, check with your doctor before using Latisse.
Some side effects include red or itchy eyes. If you stop using Latisse, your lashes will gradually return to their original appearance. The vast majority of patients report no problems with Latisse, and users rave about the results it produces.
Eyelash growth that improves your appearance usually occurs within 4 to 8 weeks – not a long time if you’ve suffered from bad eyelashes for years. It can take up to 90 days to work effectively for some patients. After your lashes have grown to the length that’s right for you, applications can be reduced to two or three times per week.
Again, if you stop Latisse treatments, your eyelashes will go back to their usual shedding process and return to pre-treatment condition within a month. Latisse also has been able to promote eyebrow growth in some users.
