If you’re considering Latisse®(bimatoprost ophthalmic solution) 0.03%, it’s important to get all the facts before making any decisions. Like any new product, you’re going to have questions about how the treatment works, how soon you’ll see results, and, of course, how safe the product is.
Is Latisse® Right for You?
While most everyone may want the look of longer, fuller and darker lashes, not everyone may be right for the treatment. Dr. Sosa and Dr. Johnston will evaluate your medical history to determine if you are a good candidate. You should not use Latisse® if you have an active eye condition, including an eye infection, or have broken or irritated skin on your eyelid. And if you are using products for elevated intraocular pressure, you should only use Latisse® after consulting with Dr. Sosa and Dr. Johnston.
What are the Side Effects?
The most common side effects after using the Latisse® solution are an itching sensation in the eyes and/or eye redness. This was reported in approximately four percent of patients. Latisse® solution may cause other less common side effects which typically occur on the skin close to where Latisse® is applied, or in the eyes. These include skin darkening, eye irritation, dryness of the eyes, and redness of the eyelids.
What to Expect After Latisse®
Great eyelashes don’t just happen overnight. That’s why it’s important to note that Latisse® (bimatoprost ophthalmic solution) 0.03% works gradually and remarkably — starting at four weeks with full results after 16 weeks. Once you begin treatment, you could start to see results in as little as four weeks, but you must continue applying the topical treatment each night and follow the directions for best results. Remember results are gradual over time.
Your Eyelashes Will Experience Real Measurable Growth.
Latisse® works from the inside out. As the treatment progresses, you’ll begin to see changes in length, thickness, and darkness gradually. After week 16, you should see the full effect of Latisse® — and so will others.
In the clinical study, 78 percent saw significant increases in all of the following three measurements at week 16: length, fullness, and darkness.
