Tips for Using Latisse®

Latisse® in Sandusky, OH

For anyone struggling to grow long, thick eyelashes, Latisse® offers a simple solution. With daily application, Latisse® can stimulate natural eyelash growth to create the dramatic eyelashes that you desire. If you’re interested in the Latisse® treatment, we have a few extra tips for using Latisse® that will help you get the most out of your treatment!

Apply Only to the Upper Eyelashes

Latisse® is an effective solution for stimulating eyelash growth, but it’s only designed for use on the upper eyelids. When using Latisse®, be sure to only apply it to the upper eyelids! If you place Latisse® on the lower eyelids, you put yourself at risk of getting the Latisse® solution into the eyes. If the Latisse® solution gets into the eyes, it can cause various adverse effects, including darkening of the eyelid or the eye itself.

Apply Consistently Everyday

The best way to guarantee your results from Latisse® is to apply the formula consistently on a daily basis. Apply the Latisse® formula just like you would with eyeliner, and be sure to wipe off any excess product. You can apply the Latisse® formula either at night or in the morning, just be sure to stick to a schedule for best results. Always remember to use Latisse® as directed! Applying extra formula will not accelerate your results – it will only increase the risk of getting the Latisse® formula in the eyes. Similarly, if you forget to use Latisse® on a given day, don’t try to play catch-up with additional applications.

Have Patience

Latisse® doesn’t produce results overnight, so don’t get discouraged if you don’t start noticing results immediately. For most patients, it will take one to two months before any results become noticeable. The full results will become visible after approximately 16 weeks of daily use, during which time you will notice longer, thicker and fuller eyelashes.

Keep Using it After Reaching Your Goals

It’s important to remember that Latisse® only continues to work as long as you continue using the product. If you discontinue daily use of Latisse®, your eyelashes will gradually return to their initial length and thickness. Although some patients may have success with reducing the use of Latisse® from daily to every other day, it is likely that there will still be some reduction in the length or fullness of the eyelashes. Ultimately, to maintain your results, you’ll need to continue using Latisse® on a regular basis.
