Find Your Inner Zen at Xanadu
If you noticed that your lashes are getting thinner, we at Xanadu Med Spa have the solution:
Latisse® is is the first and only FDA approved prescription treatment to grow eyelashes. A prescription solution, or “eyelash growth medicine” as some call it, is applied to the upper eyelid on a nightly basis and Latisse makes your lashes grow longer, thicker and darker.
Available only through a doctor, Latisse® is a once-daily prescription treatment applied to the base of the upper eyelashes with a sterile, single-use-per-eye disposable applicator. Latisse® users can expect to experience longer, fuller and darker eyelashes in as little as six to eight weeks . To maintain eyelash growth, continued treatment with Latisse® is required. If use of Latisse® is discontinued, eyelashes will gradually return to where they were prior to treatment over a period of weeks to a few months. It’s easy to use and the results are amazing. Latisse is simply how to grow eyelashes.
What to Expect
Set your sights on lash growth. As the treatment progresses, you’ll first begin to see changes in length. Then, gradually, you’ll notice more thickness and darkness in your lashes. If you’re satisfied with your results by week 8, don’t stop there. Stick with the lash growing treatment. After week 16, you’ll see the full effect of LATISSE® solution — and so will others. After that, you can talk to your doctor about ongoing use.
Results were proven in our clinical study.The LATISSE® clinical study was conducted at 16 sites across the country and included 278 participants of varying ages (22 to 78). The study tested LATISSE® solution and a vehicle (or placebo), which was LATISEE® without its active ingredient. Neither patients nor Clinical Investigators knew which group received what treatment. By week 16, the results showed that 78% (107/137) of participants experienced a significant increase in overall eyelash prominence (including elements of length, fullness and darkness), compared to 18% (26/141) for the vehicle group.Clinical trial results showed lashes were:
- 25% longer (2% for vehicle)
- 106% fuller (12% for vehicle)
- 18% darker (3% for vehicle)
Side effects are possible. Here’s what to look out for.
LATISSE® does have some side effects, the most common of which are an itching sensation in the eyes and/or eye redness. These were reported in approximately 4% of patients.
Other less common side effects typically occur on the skin close to where LATISSE® is applied, or in the eyes. These include eyelid skin darkening, eye irritation, dryness of the eyes, and redness of the eyelids. Eyelid skin darkening is a result of increased melanin in the skin, making your eyelid skin look a little darker close to where the solution is applied to the skin. This is expected to reverse after several weeks to months if you decide to stop using the product.
If you’re using LATISSE® solution and you develop a new ocular condition or reaction (e.g., trauma or infection), experience a sudden decrease in visual acuity, or need to have eye surgery, be sure to talk to your doctor immediately concerning the continued use of LATISSE®. Despite these unlikely side effects, LATISSE® remains among the best eyelash growth serum options on the market.
