Many women who visit our Louisiana plastic surgery practice would welcome a chance to enhance their eyelashes naturally. Eyelid surgery and brow lift surgery can rejuvenate the eye area, but beautiful eyelashes are often the finishing touch. The FDA recently approved LATISSE™, the first prescription medication offered to promote eyelash growth, improving the length, thickness, and color of your eyelashes.
Natural Lash Growth
LATISSE is made by Allergan, the company that makes BOTOX® Cosmetic, and is only available by prescription. The active ingredient, bimatoprost, naturally increases the amount and thickness of your eyelashes over time. Scientists also believe it extends the growth phase of the eyelashes, allowing them to reach greater lengths.
Where You Can Get It
While any doctor can prescribe LATISSE, it’s advisable to obtain it from a medical professional who can monitor its use and effectiveness. Your doctor will show you how to perform simple, once-daily applications right in the comfort of your own home. All you have to do is dab the solution along the skin of the upper lash line, taking care to blot any excess. As your physician will tell you, LATISSE only can be used on the upper eyelashes.
At The Wall Center for Plastic Surgery, we are excited to be able to help our patients enjoy longer lashes naturally.
