LATISSE® Eyelash Treatment in Charlotte, NC
While having long, thick, and full lashes is esthetically pleasing, many people do not have them naturally. This can be caused by a condition called hypotrichosis, which causes individuals to not grow enough eyelashes. LATISSE is an FDA-approved prescription treatment that is used to grow your own natural lashes.
At our state-of-the-art office in Charlotte, North Carolina, our cosmetic specialists will design the ideal treatment to improve your confidence in your appearance. If you desire thicker, fuller lashes, or wish that you had more lashes overall, our cosmetic experts can help. Contact Carolinas Center for Cosmetic Surgery today to schedule your consultation.
How Does LATISSE Work?
LATISSE is a safe and effective treatment that has helped many people improve eyelash length and fullness. It was originally created to use as prescription eye drops that reduce eye pressure problems. This has been a significant way to treat eye conditions like glaucoma.
It contains a lipid compound called bimatoprost. When applied to the eyelashes, this compound promotes a longer growth period for the lashes and encourages hair growth. This product is only available with a prescription, which you can receive from our office if it is determined that LATISSE is right for you. You can leave lash extensions and false lashes behind and enjoy your own natural, long, and thick eyelashes.
Benefits of LATISSE
- There is no downtime or recovery period necessary with this treatment. Simply apply the solution at night and experience longer, thicker lashes in about 4 weeks after regular application.
- You can discontinue application at any time and eventually, your eyelashes will return to their previous state.
- No needles, injections, or surgical procedures are necessary.
- You can use LATISSE whether or not you wear contacts.
- You may love your results so much that you find you no longer need mascara to enhance your lashes.
- With no need for lash extensions or excessive mascara, you save money.
- Boost your self-esteem and feel more confident about your eyes and lashes.
Steps of LATISSE Treatment
Prior to your treatment, you will meet with our experts to determine if LATISSE is right for you. People who undergo LATISSE treatment often repeat treatment to achieve optimum and longer-lasting results. You will need to invest time and dedication into your eyelash treatment, because if you discontinue treatment, your lashes will eventually return to their previous state.
Your specialist will demonstrate how to apply the solution to your upper eyelashes at night. You use a sterile applicator to apply LATISSE to the upper lash line. Use the applicator to administer the solution at the base of the upper lashes, the part of the upper eyelid where the lashes meet the skin. Be careful to avoid contact with your eyeballs.
You will notice a difference in your eyelash growth after about 4 weeks of using LATISSE, with full results appearing after 16 weeks. Talk to your specialist about how often you can repeat treatment to get the longest, fullest results out of your lash care.
Side effects of LATISSE include itchy eyes and redness. Just like any prescription treatment, always consult with a doctor for proper use instructions and important safety information. Allergic reactions are possible. Talk to your doctor about any known allergies prior to treatment or if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
