Rejuvenate Your Lashes with Latisse Treatment
If you are concerned about sparse, short, and light-coloured eyelashes, you may want to take time to learn about solutions for the lashes available with our Vancouver, British Columbia team at Hush Beauty. Dr. Rose Wong is a provider who is pleased to offer solutions for patients who want to rejuvenate their lashes without using lash extensions or mascara. Many women find that treatment with Latisse provides them with the results they desire with a prescription-based product used once a day.
What is Latisse?
Latisse is a prescription-based product that is FDA-approved for treating hypotrichosis or inadequate eyelashes. However, some women use this treatment for cosmetic purposes to achieve thicker, fuller, longer lashes and eliminate the use of lash extensions, fake lashes, or other products not guaranteed to provide lasting results. The active ingredient in Latisse is bimatoprost, which was initially used to treat glaucoma. When applied topically to the lash line, Latisse helps stimulate the growth of new lashes and thickens and lengthens existing lashes.
How does Latisse work?
The way that Latisse works is not entirely understood, but it is thought to increase the number of hairs in the anagen (growth) phase. Applying it topically to the lash line also seems to help keep hair in this growth phase for a longer time. Bimatoprost is also known to prolong the anagen phase of hair in other areas of the body, such as the scalp, so this exact mechanism is likely responsible for the improved lash growth seen with Latisse.
What are the side effects of Latisse?
Most women who use Latisse do not experience any adverse effects. Still, some may experience a transient burning sensation, itching, redness, or darkening of the eyelid skin at the application site. These symptoms usually resolve within a few days to a week after starting treatment.
