Struggling with Your Eyelashes? We Have Just the Solution

Eyelash Treatment with Latisse

At Eye Centers of Florida, we’re known for helping people in Southwest Florida improve their eyesight, but did you know that our Aesthetic Center has been helping patients enhance their beauty for over 20 years?

It’s important that your eyes are healthy, but it’s also important that you enjoy the person looking back at you in the mirror.

It’s time to talk about eyelashes.

Eyelashes don’t only protect the eye from debris, dust, and foreign particles, but they also have a significant impact on how we look. It’s not uncommon to struggle with your eyelash length and thickness, and sometimes applying mascara or eyelash extensions just isn’t making as much of an improvement as you’d like. That’s where Latisse™ comes in.

What is Latisse™?

At Eye Centers of Florida, we offer Latisse™, an FDA-approved product that enhances the growth of your eyelashes. When applied regularly, Latisse™ will result in longer, thicker, and darker eyelashes.

Latisse™ should be applied once a day before bed, after all make-up, mascara, and contact lenses have been removed. All you have to do is use the sterile applicator provided to smooth one drop of the Latisse™ solution across the eyelid, close to the lash line.

How Does Latisse™ Work?

Eyelashes behave similarly to other hairs on the body: they sprout, grow, and over time, they eventually fall out. Just as the hair on our heads and bodies grow at different rates, our eyelashes do as well, meaning that some people’s eyelashes naturally grow thicker and fuller than others.

Latisse™ works by increasing the number of eyelashes that sprout as well as extending the growth phase for those hairs.

If I Use Latisse™, What Can I Expect?

All good things come in time, and Latisse™ is no exception. Because Latisse™ is actually promoting the growth of new eyelashes, the best results begin to appear after an average of two months.

At The Aesthetic Center, we’ve found that patients have been so excited with the results of their Latisse™ treatments that waiting two months to see results was well worth it. After two months of using Latisse™, you’ll have grown thicker and fuller eyelashes, which is something that could never be accomplished even after a lifetime of applying mascara and receiving eyelash extensions.

During the Latisse™ clinical trial, participants experienced these results after 16 weeks:

  • Eyelash length increased by 25 percent
  • Thickness and fullness increased by 106 percent
  • Eyelash darkness increased by 18 percent

Who Can Use Latisse™?

While most people may want thicker and fuller eyelashes, Latisse™ isn’t the solution for everyone. If you’ve previously been diagnosed with eye problems, are taking medications for eye pressure, or have risks for glaucoma, Latisse™ may not be for you.

However, if your eye doctor recommends Latisse™, this treatment can help you fall in love with your eyelashes. If you’re suffering from hypotrichosis, alopecia, have lost your eyelashes as a result of chemotherapy, or just feel that your eyelashes could use a bit of a boost, Latisse™ may be able to help.

If you’re interested in Latisse™, the first step is to consult an expert at Eye Centers of Florida. Any one of our experienced doctors, including our Board Certified Ophthalmic Plastic Surgeon, Allison Bertram Yee, M.D., can help determine if Latisse™ is the right solution for you. And, because we offer Latisse™ for purchase in our office, you can begin your treatment for fuller, healthier-looking eyelashes right away.
