They weren’t kidding when they said the eyes are the windows to the soul. One of the first things people notice about each other when they’re meeting for the first time are their eyes. Your eyes sometimes speak what words cannot say, which is why it’s important to make eye contact when talking to someone.

There are many ways to draw someone’s attention to your eyes. Some people wear fashionable spectacles while others prefer makeup. But there is another way for people to bring attention to their eyes, and that’s through a treatment called Latisse.

Look Magical With Latisse

Many people stare into the mirror yearning for longer, thicker eyelashes. They make your eyes appear bigger and more attractive. For years, people made do with false eyelashes. While they did make your eyes look better, it was a task putting them on and taking them off. Now, you no longer have to deal with that drama thanks to Latisse.

Latisse is an FDA-approved drug that has been formulated to treat a condition known as hypertrichosis. This condition is seen in people who have short, scanty, or inadequate eyelashes.

Latisse was created after medical experts discovered that a certain glaucoma drug called bimatoprost caused a side effect that led to longer and thicker eyelashes. People taking bimatoprost would return with longer, thicker, and darker eyelashes in just six weeks. Bimatoprost is now used as an active ingredient in Latisse.

After being approved by the FDA, Latisse is now available as a prescription medication. It is used for aesthetic purposes to increase the length and growth of eyelashes, making them thicker and darker.

With regular application along your upper eyelid’s lash line, Latisse encourages the growth of longer and thicker eyelashes. Blinking will spread it to your lower eyelid. As long as you continue to use Latisse, your eyelashes will remain long, thick, and dark. Once you stop the application, your eyelashes will return to their previous appearance in about three months.

What Should You Know Before Trying Latisse?

Before you decide to try Latisse, you should make sure to speak to your eye doctor. The active ingredient in Latisse was primarily used to treat glaucoma. Some people may have an adverse reaction to it, so consult your doctor before you use Latisse.

Latisse is also not suggested for people who have an active eye infection, eye trauma, decreased vision, or inflammation. If you are currently suffering from an eye condition such as macular edema or glaucoma, visit your ophthalmologist first. Latisse can only be purchased with a valid prescription from your doctor, even if it is for aesthetic purposes.

There may be some side effects to using Latisse such as swelling, redness, or itching. The skin on the eyelid may also become darker after applying the drug. Latisse is not meant to be applied on the lower eyelid as it can cause unwanted hair to grow, leading to discomfort or even vision obstruction.

The magic of Latisse is that it gives you longer, more beautiful eyelashes, making your eyes and face more attractive. Consult your ophthalmologist for more details on this miracle drug and its benefits.
