Make Your Eyes Pop With Latisse Lash Extensions

Eyelashes are a core part of most women’s beauty routines. WebMD estimates that 65% of women include mascara as a part of their daily makeup application, and the overall false eyelash market is worth as much at 1.8 billion dollars. Mascara and false lashes are both made to enhance the fullness, length, and color of the eyelashes. Long, full lashes are seen as beautiful, both in person and in photos.

Many women, however, are frustrated with their eyelashes. Genetic factors or general aging have left them with short or thin lashes that just don’t compare to those found in commercials and magazines. With this in mind, they pursue false lashes, eyelash curlers, and many other beauty tools meant to “grow” the appearance of their lashes. Although these methods work, they aren’t permanent and often need constant upkeep. Latisse may be able to break this cycle and give users great lashes that will really make their eyes pop.

Ready to take your lashes to the next level? At Premier Aesthetics, Joseph Morandi, DO and the rest of our team are ready to help you reach all of your beauty and aesthetic goals. From Latisse to body contouring to Botox, Dr. Morandi has the tools to give you the aesthetic improvements you’ve always wanted.

Eyelash basics

Eyelashes, despite their seemingly innocuous nature, are pretty amazing. You’re born with eyelashes, which begin to develop between the 22nd and 26th week of pregnancy. Although often discussed with fashion as the main frame of reference, eyelashes do offer actual medical benefits. These little wonders keep dirt and debris out of your eyes, and their sensitivity provides a warning for your eyes to close when unseen foreign objects touch them (like a bug or splash of liquid).

Some people just have short eyelashes, either from disorders, aging, or just bad genetic luck. There is nothing medically wrong with having short eyelashes.

Current eyelash treatments

Other than mascara and eyelash curlers, most people will use extensions or fake lashes. Some fake lashes are sold as sets that can be applied at home, while others need to be applied at a day spa or cosmetologist office. Before Latisse was developed, eyelash extensions were the most convincing way to elongate your lashes. Extensions are made of a fiber, usually nylon, and are glued directly onto your lashes one-by-one. They last as long as the eyelash itself does, usually two months.

What is Latisse?

Latisse the commercial name for the medication bimatoprost, which was originally developed as a glaucoma drug. Eyelash growth from the drug was just a convenient side effect. Over time, Latisse stimulates and encourages the growth of longer, thicker, and darker eyelashes. 

How do I use Latisse?

Latisse is a prescription drug, so you’ll start with an appointment at Premier Aesthetics. Dr. Morandi will examine your medical history and current eyelashes to see if you’re a good candidate for Latisse treatment.

After you get the prescription, you’ll use the sterile applicator to apply the topical solution to the top eyelid every night; do not apply to the bottom eyelid. It should be one of the last parts of your bedtime routine. You should remove makeup, wash your face, and take out your contacts (if applicable) before applying. Although side effects are unlikely and mostly mild, you should stop use immediately if you experience any pain, swelling, or eye changes.

What results can I expect?

Most patients see noticeably longer and fuller lashes at around 16 weeks of use. After achieving your preferred results, you’ll work with Dr. Morandi to discuss continued treatment. Your improved lashes should last for as long as you keep using Latisse. If you do decide to stop treatment, your lashes will return to their previous state in two to three months.

At Premier Aesthetics we can help you achieve natural, full eyelashes with Latisse. Leave the extensions and fake lashes in the past. Call or book an appointment online at our Bernardsville office today.
