Latisse-The magic lash potion

Are your lashes thinning over time?  Wish you had that magic potion that will give you those long, luscious and full lashes?  WDC not only has the magic potion, but we’re also offering amazing discounts on one of our favorite products for longer, fuller, and darker lashes.  Latisse is one of the only proven and top dermatology recommended products for lash growth.  Here’s what you need to know about Latisse.

What is it?  Latisse is a prescription treatment for hypotrichosis (inadequate or not enough lashes) to grow eyelashes longer, fuller, and darker. Latisse is an FDA approved (since 2008) prescription product that has to be administered by a doctor to assure proper treatment and usage.

How do I use it?  Remove all makeup first.  Latisse comes in 5ML  and 3ML kits with sterile applicators (one applicator per eyelid).  It is to be applied to the upper eyelid only, avoiding contact with all other skin to avoid unwanted hair growth in other areas.  You drop a pea-sized amount on the applicator and apply to the upper lid, similar to eyeliner application.   It does take 8-16 weeks of consistent daily use to start seeing results.

Does it really work?  There have been a number of clinical studies surrounding Latisse, conducted at 16 different sites across the country, finding that 78% of patients noticed an overall improvement in lashes over a 16-week period of time.  After 16 weeks application can be reduced to every 2-3 days to maintain growth. We have had a ton of patient success at WDC and it is a top product used by staff members as well!

Are there side effects? Latisse has been around for some time now, and we always get the most common question before use….will it change my eye color?  While there have been some cases where Latisse has slightly changed eye color, the cases reported have been with the use of applying the solution directly into the eye, rather than the upper lid.  Some patients do occasionally get a darker pigmentation on the upper lid, but this is resolved once use of Latisse is discontinued.

Are there any other proven options on the market for lash growth? Latisse is the only FDA approved and dermatology recommend product for lash growth with a proven history of success!
