Long, thick eyelashes are considered a sign of feminine beauty and may diminish over time. Wearing makeup or false eyelashes is not always possible, which is why having your own thick lashes is preferred. Latisse® can help you restore lash length and volume when used as directed by Dr. Steven Carp of Carp Cosmetic Surgery Center. Patients in Akron, Canton, Cleveland, Beachwood and Green, OH, may all benefit from this treatment.
What Is Latisse®?
If your eyelashes are short or poorly defined, Dr. Carp might recommend using Latisse® to enhance them. False eyelashes and thick mascara only solve this issue temporarily. Furthermore, these products fail to give consumers the results they need or expect. Latisse®, on the other hand, has been proven in clinical trials to produce results in only a few weeks, and it provides patients with a remedy for poorly-defined or short eyelashes.
Benefits of Latisse®
Besides giving you longer, thicker eyelashes, Latisse® also has several other benefits, such as:
- The fact that you can apply it in the comfort of your own home
- Darkening lashes with consistent application
- Obtaining noticeable results in a few weeks that increase with continued use
What Is the Procedure for Latisse®?
Before beginning a Latisse® regimen, Dr. Carp will schedule you for a consultation, where he will discuss the benefits and risks. After determining whether you’re a good candidate for Latisse®, he’ll apply the first treatment for you so you can see how to do it yourself. A clean face is essential before applying the product. There should be no lotion, makeup or skincare products on your eyelids. After washing your face, dry it with a soft, clean towel.
Next, place one drop of Latisse® on the applicator, and while holding it horizontally like a mascara brush, apply the product to your lashes starting with the inside of your top eyelid. Move the brush slowly as if you were applying liquid eyeliner. A cotton ball or soft cloth can be used to remove any excess product. Many people who use Latisse® find that it makes a great addition to their usual nighttime routine. A shower, face scrub, and an application of Latisse® is a common routine for patients who are prescribed this medication for their eyelash problems.
At Home Care
While Latisse® is available by prescription only, you may still apply it yourself at home. However, it’s important to adhere to the instructions on the packaging. Don’t use Latisse® on your bottom lids or lashes, and avoid getting it in your eyes. Following these simple rules makes Latisse® effective and easy to use. If you still have questions, problems, or concerns, Dr. Carp will be more than happy to address them for you.
How Much Does Latisse® Cost?
Latisse® enhances the general appearance and health of your lashes. Because each patient has different needs, the cost of Latisse® will vary. Latisse® is considered to be elective, so your insurance provider won’t cover the cost. However, Dr. Carp offers financing options and also accepts cash, credit cards, and personal checks.
Is Latisse® Right for Me?
If you’re tired of spending money every month trying to achieve fuller, thicker lashes, then you may be a good candidate for Latisse®. Latisse® is formulated specifically to stimulate lash growth from the inside out, and it can completely overhaul their appearance. There is no need to remove and reapply Latisse®. All you need is one application to your top lashes daily. Always remember to apply Latisse® before you go to bed at night.
What to Expect During Your Latisse® Consultation
During your consultation with Dr. Carp, he will evaluate your overall health and check your medical history for any previous or ongoing eye conditions. He will also fully address any of your questions or concerns. If Dr. Carp decides that Latisse® is right for you, he’ll educate you on the correct application method as well as any precautions that should be taken.
