Thin or short eyelashes can result from the normal aging process or simple genetics. If you want fuller, longer, darker lashes, visit Joseph T. Morandi, DO at Premier Aesthetics. Serving adults in Bernardsville, New Jersey, the practice offers Latisse®, a topical solution that helps to increase lash fullness and length. To learn more, call to schedule a consultation or book your first appointment online.
Latisse is the brand name for bimatoprost, a medication that helps to thicken and lengthen eyelashes. As a cosmetic treatment for eyelash enhancement, Latisse can make your natural lashes stand out while giving your eyes a more radiant appearance.
Most people can tolerate Latisse well, but you must have good eye health and no history of allergic reaction to Latisse ingredients to be a candidate for the treatment.
Latisse requires a prescription from one of the providers at Premier Aesthetics. First, you meet with one of the providers to talk about your goals and to make sure you’re a candidate for Latisse treatment.
The medication is a topical solution you use at home, after cleansing your face, removing makeup, and taking out your contacts (if you wear them). You simply apply the solution to your upper lash line, avoiding your lower lash line, with the sterile applicator each night.
Over time, your lashes start to grow, fill in, and thicken. If you’re seeing encouraging results after about eight weeks, you can continue the treatment to 16 weeks to experience even more lash growth.
While most people don’t experience any negative side effects, you might notice slight itching or redness of the eyes, or darkening of the skin around the eyelids.
You can usually see full results from Latisse after about four months. It’s important to continue applying the solution as directed to get the best outcome. After you’ve achieved your desired results, you can talk with your provider about ongoing use of Latisse to maintain your new, improved lashes.
Results are generally permanent with ongoing use, and Latisse treatment can replace the need for other cosmetic products, like mascara, lash curlers, or false eyelashes.
The process is easy and effective, and it doesn’t require multiple doctor visits.
The providers at Premier Aesthetics are trained to help patients achieve the best results with Latisse. You can enhance the overall appearance of your eyes and entire face by combining Latisse with other cosmetic treatments, like Botox.
