Latisse® is an incredible FDA-approved pharmaceutical that helps patients grow longer, darker, eyelashes. The essential ingredient is a substance called bimatoprost, which has been clinically proven to encourage the growth of eyelashes. This synthetic product is a fatty molecule that is still being explored by scientists as they try to determine the mechanism by which it produces positive results. At Hanemann Plastic Surgery, Latisse® is one of the many treatment options we offer.
There is no doubt that using Latisse® does result in longer and thicker lashes in just a few weeks. In fact, many patients report seeing desired results in as little as 8 to 16 weeks. Here are a few of the benefits and uses you can expect from this treatment:
Regrowth of Lost Lashes Due to Accident or Disease
One of the side effects of some diseases or their treatments is eyelash loss. For example, chemotherapy in cancer patients not only causes hair loss, but it can also cause eyelashes to fall out. There are also many other potential causes of eyelash loss, such as Alopecia Areata and Blepharitis, just to name a couple.
For patients experiencing complete eyelash loss, Latisse® is a fantastic solution that has been shown to reduce these side effects again and again in clinical trials. Sparse or no eyelashes is a significant concern for many people because it can result in a displeasing appearance. Latisse® is perfect for eliminating this concern and sparking the re-growth of healthy eyelashes.
Aging also commonly causes hair loss, and in this case, eyelashes are not exempt. Eyelashes can become thinner and less abundant as we get older. For those who are seeking an eyelash loss prevention or anyone wanting to regrow their eyelashes, Latisse® has been used successfully to re-grow healthy eyelashes for all kinds of people and at a nominal cost.
Clinical trials resulted in a net gain of 25% elongation of lashes in patients. Full results were typically seen around 12 to 16 weeks after starting the treatment. Scientists involved with the trials agree that users can expect Latisse® to promote prolonged periods of eyelash growth.
Darker, Richer and Thicker Eyelashes
Extra length in eyelashes is one thing, but this product enhances other attributes of eyelashes as well. After just a few weeks of use, darker, richer and thicker eyelashes were noticed by many users. During the clinical trials, a full 78% of the 278 adult subjects reported significant improvements in the quality of their eyelashes. Increased thickness, fullness and more vibrant color were also reported.
