Part of achieving a dramatic, gorgeous look is having long, thick eyelashes. For some individuals, this comes naturally. They have to do very little with their eyelashes for them to get attention, perhaps just slightly curling them and applying a small amount of mascara. Other individuals do not have it so easy. Instead, they have thin eyelashes that are short and light in color.
For them to enjoy their appearance and get that gorgeous look, they have to apply false eyelashes, either doing this on their own or having a professional maintain them. This requires a lot of work, and you will never be fully satisfied with your appearance. For this reason, you may choose to use Latisse® to enhance your thin eyelashes.
The main ingredient in Latisse® is bimatoprost. This medication was originally used in eye drops to help individuals who experienced glaucoma. After using the eye drops for glaucoma, they noticed that they had thicker eyelashes.
Essentially, this miracle treatment was discovered by accident. When Latisse® is used according to a medical professional’s instructions, it can encourage the growth of thicker, darker, longer eyelashes. It is only meant to be used on the upper eyelid.
For you to achieve the desired results, you must use Latisse® for at least two months before you see improvements in your eyelashes. Using a small brush, Latisse® is gently applied along the upper lash line. It is important for you to make sure that it only touches the area that is supposed to be treated.
To apply Latisse® correctly, you need to first remove makeup and clean your upper eyelids. Also, it is important to remove contact lenses. Using a small applicator provided by our medical professional, you will apply one drop of Latisse® to the upper lash line. When you move to the other eye, you will use a new applicator to avoid cross-contamination and to keep your eyes healthy.
Latisse® is meant to be used only once a day. Using it more than once a day will not get you better results. After 16 weeks of treatment, you will begin to enjoy thicker eyelashes. The best way for you to find out if you are a good candidate for Latisse® is to schedule a consultation with our medical professionals at Guelph Medical Laser and Skin Centre in Guelph.
After your consultation, it may not be long before you have longer, darker, thicker eyelashes thanks to Latisse®. Contact our office today to book your appointment.
