eye lashes glenviewQuestion:Can Latisse help me attain fuller, darker and stronger eye lashes? Also, what should I know about Latisse prior to usage?

Answer: For readers who are looking to enhance their eyelashes, Latisse may be just be the product you’ve been searching for! Thankfully the FDA recently approved this prescription treatment for those who suffer from hypotrichosis, or have insufficient eyelashes! Latisse has been proven to deliver thicker, longer lashes within 4-16 weeks from initial use. Feel free to imagine yourself with a nice thick set of eyelashes! Before long, you’ll be dodging the nonstop compliments from strangers regarding your beautiful long lashes! You will sit back and enjoy watching commercials illustrating mascara which will enhance your lashes, knowing you’re lashes are already there!

One common fear about using Latisse is eye irritation! But many things cause eye irritation, we can not assume it’s due to Latisse. The safest course of action would be a quick visit to your local eye care specialist.

Another concern is the possibility of increased pigmentation of the iris after discontinuing use of Latisse. But there were ZERO reports of pigmentation alteration reported in the FDA trial study. For those concerned with the possibility of side effects occurring with prolonged use of Latisse rest assure that the FDA trials did not report any changes with prolonged usage.

What if Latisse gets into your eye? Latisse in the eye is NOT expected to cause any harm. Studies have shown that only 5% of the actual drop volume ever gets to the surface of the eye. So, with that said, it’s not necessary to rinse the eye should Latisse get into your cornea.

Hyper pigmentation is listed as a possible side effect on the Latisse brochure, how concerned should I be? Reportedly less than 4% of known patients out of the 278 included in the study were affected by hyper pigmentation. Some of the 4% some did see a reversal of the hyper pigmentation.
