Latisse Procedure in New York
Attractive, long and lush eyelashes have always been a standard of beauty. Thick and gorgeous eyelashes can highlight one’s eyes in a way nothing else can. Unfortunately, many people are not genetically blessed with thick eyelashes.
While various eyelash tinting products exist, many are made of harmful chemicals that can injure the eyes. If you are unsatisfied with your eyelashes and feel thicker eyelashes will improve your look, Rejuve NYC offers a safe and effective prescription drug called Latisse.
What is Latisse and How Does it Work?
Latisse is a prescription medication that is approved for treating a condition known as hypotrichosis, or inadequate and insufficient eyelashes. Latisse is also known as Bimatoprost Ophthalmic Solution. Its precise mechanism of action is not completely understood. Latisse originated from a drug used to treat glaucoma or increased ocular pressure in the eyes. One of the side effects of that parent drug was thicker and darker eyelashes.
For best results, Latisse should only be applied to the base of the upper eyelashes. It is recommended that Latisse not be applied to the lower lashes. You will not see results immediately, and in fact, it can take up to 16 weeks to see fuller and thicker lashes. Latisse needs to be applied topically to the eyelashes each night for it to work. Once you discontinue Latisse, your lashes will slowly go back to the original state.
Clinical studies have shown that lashes become twenty-five percent longer; one hundred and six percent fuller; and eighteen percent darker while using Latisse.
Latisse is not without risks, and you should always use it under the care of a physician. Latisse may cause a permanent pigmentation of the colored part of the eye that is permanent. Eyelid skin may also darken, which may or may not be reversible. Also, hair may grow on skin that comes in contact with Latisse, which is why its careful application is so important. Itchy and red eyes are common while using Latisse.
While serious side effects are rare, if you experience visual changes, eye pain or allergic symptoms (swelling, difficulty breathing, severe itching, etc), always go to the nearest emergency room.
