Save Sparse Lashes with Latisse®

Over the span of history, long, full and luscious eyelashes have become a symbol of beauty and femininity and a wink or the bat of an eye have been used to lure and entice. If you’ve got something to be desired in the lash department, you may have considered products to thicken and lengthen your eyelashes. Eyeliner can be a great illusion and mascaras are temporary, but Latisse® may be a lasting solution for your lash woes. Summit Skin & Vein Care will answer your questions about this product and what it can do for you.

What is Latisse®?

EyelashesOriginally developed to treat glaucoma, Latisse®, or bimatoprost, was found to drastically darken, lengthen and thicken patients’ lashes. Soon thereafter, researchers conducted studies on how to best use the formula for this new-found purpose.

Latisse® is currently available by prescription only.

Is it safe to use?

Absolutely. Common side-effects include dryness, redness, itching and mild burning of the eye when in use, as well as darkening of the eyelid skin.

However, as with any medication, there are certain people that should avoid this product. Those with allergies to any of the ingredients, as well as women that are pregnant, plan to become so, or are breastfeeding should consult their doctor first. Others that should do so are people with current or a history of eye problems, including upcoming eye surgery, those with allergies and those taking any sort of medication or supplement. If you fall into one of the above categories, it does not necessarily mean you will be unable to use Latisse®, simply that you should inform the professionals at Summit Skin & Vein of your status at your consultation.

When can I expect to see results?

If used properly and consistently, patients generally see full and thick lashes after week sixteen, but some see changes as early as week four. Remember, however, that every patient is different so your results may not be the same as someone else’s.
