In 2008, the FDA (Federal Drug Administration) approved Latisse® as an eyelash growth serum. Latisse was actually discovered by accident when it was noticed that a glaucoma eye drop was causing some patient’s eyelashes to grow. Soon, Latisse was developed that targeted this unintended side effect. Xanadu Med Spa in Fort Collins notes that Latisse is only available with a prescription from a doctor since it is a prescription drug.

What to Expect

As previously mentioned, you simply apply a drop of Latisse eyelash growth serum to your upper lash line every night, making sure the application is sterilized. When you blink, the serum will automatically be applied to your lower lashes, making the purposeful application redundant and overkill.

Be sure your applicator (most likely a q-tip) is sterile when using, and apply it only to the prescribed area. This medicine can cause hair growth in other areas as well if applied incorrectly. Any introduction of bacteria from using dirty applicators can cause eye infections.

Eyelashes being akin to your hair, it will take time for your eyelashes to grow and for you to see results. The minimum use time is two months, but it can be up to four months before you see results. Xanadu Med Spa in Fort Collins wants to remind you that consistency is key, so try not to miss nights when using Latisse. Do be aware that once you stop using Latisse, your eyelashes will stop responding and will stop growing.

POSSIBLE SIDE EFFECTS OF LATISSE

  • Darkening of the eyelids
  • Dry eyes
  • Itchy and red eyes
  • Pupil can change color
  • Hair growth in other places besides the eyelash
