Do I Need a Prescription for Latisse?
Thick, long eyelashes will draw attention to your eyes and make you feel beautiful and confident. Latisse is an FDA-approved treatment that will enhance the length, thickness, and overall appearance of your eyelashes. If you live in Los Angeles, you should consider receiving a prescription for this treatment from the InjectAbility Clinic in Torrance, CA.
Do I Need a Prescription for Latisse?
Latisse is a specialized product that is designed to improve inadequate or insufficient eyelashes. Although this is a very gentle treatment, you cannot buy this product on your own. Instead, you will need to receive a prescription in order to purchase this product and begin the process of improving your lashes.
When you visit our office in Torrance, we will examine your eyes and eyelashes. During this appointment, you should be prepared to tell us about any eye issues that you have. Although this product is very safe, some health problems may prevent you from receiving a prescription for this treatment. In particular, you might not be able to use this eyelash product if you have eye pressure issues or other eye problems.
Why Do I Have Thin Eyelashes?
It’s very normal to have thin or inadequate eyelashes. This condition is known as hypotrichosis. Since your genes affect the length and thickness of your eyelashes, you might have inadequate lashes when you are young. The changes that your body experiences during the aging process can also cause your eyelashes to become thinner over time.
In addition to age and genetics, your beauty habits can damage your eyelashes. In particular, sleeping with mascara on your lashes or using artificial eyelashes can cause your natural lashes to become shorter. Further, medical conditions like eczema and thyroid disorders can harm the growth cycle of your eyelashes.
How Will This Product Improve My Eyelashes?
Latisse contains an ingredient called bimatoprost. Scientists believe that this ingredient changes the growth cycle of your eyelash hairs. In particular, the bimatoprost in this product may cause your eyelashes to actively grow for longer periods of time. As you continue to apply this product to your body, your eyelashes will become longer and fuller.
Scientific studies have shown that this eyelash product is very good at improving eyelash fullness and growth. During a clinical study of this product, the majority of people who used this serum experienced positive changes in their eyelashes.
How Will I Use This Product?
When you fill your prescription for this eyelash product, you will receive a special kit that will contain serum and a group of single-use applicators. You will use these sterile applicators to apply the product to the base of your upper eyelashes once every day.
To begin, you should thoroughly clean your face and remove your contacts. Next, you should put one drop of this product onto an applicator brush. You should use this brush to carefully apply the serum onto the base of your upper lashes. You must use a new applicator brush to repeat this application process with your other eye. During this process, you should make sure not to touch your applicators to the surrounding surfaces in your bathroom.
When Will My Eyelashes Begin To Lengthen?
As you continue to apply this product to your target area, your lashes will gradually become fuller, longer, and darker. In general, you will see the full benefit of this product after about 16 weeks.
Following a Consistent Schedule
To achieve the most dramatic changes in your eyelashes, you should apply this product every day. If you forget to apply the product for one day, you should not apply the serum twice during the next day. Instead, you should return to your usual schedule.
Maintaining Your New Eyelashes
If you stop applying this product, your eyelashes will slowly become shorter and sparser. To avoid this problem, you should switch to a maintenance plan after you have been applying this product for 16 weeks. During this portion of your eyelash treatment, you can apply the product once every two to three days.
Can I Continue Wearing Makeup While I Use This Product?
You don’t have to stop wearing mascara, eyeliner, and other beauty products when you use this treatment to improve your eyelashes. In fact, your longer, fuller lashes are likely to enhance the effects of your makeup and make you feel more confident about your appearance. That said, you will need to carefully remove all of your makeup before you apply this product to your target area.
Lengthen Your Eyelashes
You don’t have to wear artificial eyelashes or receive expensive eyelash extensions in order to achieve full, attractive lashes. Latisse can dramatically increase the darkness, length, and thickness of your eyelashes.
