When it comes to your appearance, your eyes take center stage, which is why efforts to amplify eyelashes have been around for millennia. But rather than the charcoal sticks of old, we now have more powerful weapons that promote lash growth, giving you perfectly framed eyes.
At Aesthetic Assets, our goal is to provide you with the latest cosmetic treatments that boost your appearance from head to toe. Under the expert care of Pam Andow, Stacey Molina, and Tamara Kaye have the tools you need to look your very best, enhancing your God-given assets. And there’s no more important an asset than your eyes, which is why we’re pleased to make Latisse® available to our Scottsdale, Arizona, patients.
Here’s a look at how you can achieve longer, more luscious lashes with Latisse.
To give you an idea about the effectiveness of Latisse, it was originally designed to help people with inadequate lashes. This condition, which is known as hypotrichosis, can be hereditary or develop because of unique circumstances, such as the loss of hair due to chemotherapy treatments.
The primary ingredient in Latisse is bimatoprost, which encourages the growth of eyelashes that are longer, thicker, and darker.
The FDA approved the product in 2008 mainly for hypotrichosis, but Latisse is so successful that it’s fast becoming a go-to treatment in cosmetic circles.
How Latisse works
Using Latisse is incredibly easy. You simply apply the serum along your upper eyelid (it’s only designed for your upper lashes) daily, perhaps as part of your evening cleansing routine.
In the first four weeks of use, you should notice that your lashes begin to get longer. By week eight, you’ll notice that your lashes are fuller and darker and, by week 16, you’ll realize the full benefits of Latisse with long, luscious lashes that perfectly accentuate your eyes.
Please note that it’s important that you keep up with your daily application of Latisse, because once you stop using it your lashes will return to their previous state fairly quickly.
Just how effective is Latisse?
Latisse conducted a clinical study, which included 278 participants who either used Latisse or a placebo. By week 16, over three-quarters of participants “experienced a significant increase in overall eyelash prominence (including elements of length, fullness, and darkness.)” In the placebo group, only 18% reported the same findings.
Breaking the results down further, the eyelashes among the participants were:
- 25% longer
- 106% fuller
- 18% darker
These numbers are certainly impressive and underscore the efficacy of this very simple treatment in enhancing your eyelashes through natural growth.
