Did you know that Latisse is the first and only FDA-approved product indicated to treat eyelashes for increasing their growth, length, thickness and darkness? Latisse is also the only lash-growth product of its kind available by prescription. Great eyelashes don’t just happen overnight. It’s important to note that Latisse works gradually and remarkably, with full results in 16 weeks. Latisse is a once-a-day treatment that is applied topically to the base of the upper eyelashes.
Once you know how to apply Latisse, it’s important to understand a few simple tips to help you make your treatment as effective as possible. Follow these guidelines for best results:
Try to incorporate Latisse, into your nightly routine – for example, after you’ve washed your face and brushed your teeth.
Keep It Handy
Store the Latisse bottle near your other skin care products or toothbrush, so you wont forget to apply it each night.
Latisse takes time to work. Only use it once a night. Use of Latisse more than once a day will not increase the growth of eyelashes more than use once a day.
Latisse is best applied to a clean surface. Before getting started, be sure to remove makeup and contacts.
Follow The Rules
Always use the sterile, disposable, FDA-approved applicator in the kit when applying Latisse. Do not try to apply with a cotton swab. Only apply Latisse to the base of upper lashes, not the lower lid.
Don’t Play Catch Up
If you miss a dose one night, don’t apply more just to catch up. Simply apply Latisse the next evening and stay on schedule.
Beware of Germs
Don’t let the tip of the bottle or applicator contact your fingers or any other unintended surface, in order to avoid contamination by common bacteria known to cause infections.
Chart Your Progress
When you start using Latisse, be sure to mark your calendar and take pictures throughout weeks (0, 4, 8, 12, 16), so you can have your own “Before & After Gallery.”
Stay On Course
Don’t forget that you need to exercise patience with Latisse. If you’re satisfied with your results by week 8, stick with the treatment. You’ll see the full effect of Latisse come into view at week 16. After that, you should talk to your doctor about ongoing use.
