Basics and Benefits of Latisse

For a long time, those looking for a thicker, fuller look to their eyelashes were forced to stick to time-consuming, costly options like mascara, lash dye and false eyelashes. These days that’s no longer necessary.

A product called Latisse, offered by prescription at the medical spa offices of Dr. Genesis Lifestyle Medical, has made the process of growing your eyelashes naturally  into a breeze. With just a few weeks of Latisse treatments, users can achieve fuller, thicker, longer  growth of the upper eyelashes. Let’s look at a few of the specific benefits you might find from Latisse.

Simple, Easy Application

Part of the benefit of Latisse starts with how easy it is to use. The product comes with an easy-to-use brush, which you use to apply Latisse to the base of your upper eyelashes each day. Any excess solution can be blotted away gently with a tissue or soft cloth. For most people, the application process for Latisse takes under a minute per day.

Limits Allergies

While fake eyelash adhesives, lash dyes and certain mascaras have been known to frequently cause sensitivity issues for those with specific allergies or sensitive eyes.  Latisse on the other hand, had a low incidence of allergic issues

Some individuals may experience a very brief and slight itching sensation when they first begin using Latisse, but these minor side effects are just the body growing used to the product – they will dissipate with continued use as the body adjusts to the lash growth solution.

More Permanent Solution

In comparison to these other eyelash options we’ve discussed, Latisse is a far more permanent solution. Other options have to be removed and reapplied every day, or are dyes that fade over time. Latisse actually simulates new lash growth, and these new lashes are thicker and fuller than your normal lashes. This growth will continue as long as you continue using Latisse.
