If you would like to have bold, attractive eyelashes, you should think about using Latisse to change the appearance of this facial feature. At Aesthetic Surgical Arts/Mia Bella Donna Medspa in Overland Park, Kansas, we can provide you with a prescription for this powerful cosmetic product. As your eyelashes become fuller and more noticeable, you will be able to spend less time using mascara and other types of makeup to improve your look.
How Long Does Latisse Last?
Latisse is an FDA-approved product that can be used to make your eyelashes look longer and more dramatic. To achieve these beneficial changes, you will need to apply this product to the base of your upper lashes once every day. If you regularly use this product, you will have longer and fuller eyelashes for a very long time.
In fact, this product will usually last as long as you continue to apply the serum to your eyelashes. For example, if you use this product for two years, you should have longer, more beautiful lashes during this time. If you stop applying your serum, your eyelashes will slowly become shorter and less visible.
How Will This Product Improve My Lashes?
This aesthetic product contains a beneficial ingredient that scientists call bimatoprost. Although researchers do not completely understand how this ingredient improves eyelashes, they think that this product can enhance the growth cycle of your hair. The active part of your growth cycle is known as the anagen phase.
When you start applying this product onto the base of your upper eyelashes, the bimatoprost in the serum may cause your lashes to stay in the anagen phase for longer periods of time. Further, this treatment may cause larger numbers of individual hairs to enter this phase.
Why Have My Eyelashes Become Less Visible?
In addition to improving your appearance, your eyelashes help to prevent debris from entering your eyes. Under normal circumstances, the hairs in these areas will grow during a cycle that lasts about six to 10 weeks. As a result, you should not feel worried or upset if you shed one to five individual lashes every day. That said, some factors can cause your eyelashes to become thinner and sparser over time.
Your Aesthetic Habits
Certain beauty routines can damage the individual hairs in your lashes. For example, you might use mascara or other types of eye makeup that irritate your lashes. Similarly, using artificial lashes can damage the natural hairs in this area of your face.
When you remove your artificial lashes, you might pull out some of your real eyelashes. Further, you might develop an allergy to eyelash glue that causes additional damage to your individual hairs.
When you go through menopause, you will experience hormonal changes that can affect the condition of your hair. As a result, your eyelashes may become thinner during this time in your life.
Some health conditions can negatively impact the length and fullness of your eyelashes. In particular, you might experience a health problem called blepharitis that causes your eyelids to become red or swollen. This condition can damage the follicles in your eyelashes. Similarly, you may have eyelash issues after you develop ocular rosacea, styes, infections, or other eye problems.
Since certain medications can change the hair in your brows and eyelashes, you might develop thinning lashes after you start a new medical treatment. Further, going through a stressful event, dealing with an inflammatory illness, or having a nutritional problem can damage the appearance of your lashes.
How Can I Purchase This Product?
This is a prescription product that you must use under the supervision of a trained professional. When you decide to start the process of improving your eyelashes, you should come in for a meeting at our office in Overland Park. To ensure that you are eligible for this eyelash treatment, we will examine your eyes and review your medical history.
If you have any health conditions that affect your eyes, you should tell us about these medical problems during our consultation. For example, you should let us know if you use prescription drops to control the amount of pressure in your eyes. In addition, you should discuss all of your allergies and sensitivities. This medical information will help us create an eyelash treatment plan for you.
How Should I Apply This Product?
You should apply this product once every day. Before you begin, you should clean off your makeup and take out your contact lenses. When you purchase this product, you will receive a special kit that contains a serum and a series of applicators. You should use one of these sterile applicators to apply a drop of the serum to the base of your upper eyelash.
During this process, you should not allow the tip of your applicator to come into contact with your fingers or any of the surfaces in your bathroom. To protect your health, you must use a new applicator to apply this product to your other eyelash. After you are finished, you should throw away your used applicators.
How Quickly Will This Eyelash Product Work?
Your eyelashes will probably begin to improve after you have been using this product for about 30 days. During the first 16 weeks, your eyelashes should continue to become longer, fuller, and bolder.
Can I Use This Product If I Wear Glasses or Contacts?
You can use this prescription product if you wear glasses or use contact lenses to correct your vision. However, you should always remember to take out your contact lenses before you apply this serum. You can put your contact lenses back in after 15 minutes have passed.
What Should I Do If I Forget to Apply the Product?
If you would like to achieve the full benefits of this eyelash treatment, you should remember to apply your serum once every day. To achieve this goal, you should incorporate this serum into your daily beauty routine or set a reminder on your smartphone. In addition, you might decide to use this product at the same time every day. For example, you could apply this product before you put in your contact lenses in the morning.
If you forget to use this serum, you should not try to address this oversight by using this product twice during the next day. Instead, you should simply resume using this product once every day.
Can I Combine This Product With Other Eyelash Treatments?
In addition to using a prescription product to improve your eyelashes, you can enhance your facial features by receiving eyebrow and lash tinting. During this non-invasive treatment, we will use a gentle technique to give you darker, more noticeable eyelashes or eyebrows. If you don’t like wearing makeup and frequently swim or play other sports, you should think about receiving a tinting treatment.
If you would like your eyelashes to look very full and dramatic, you might decide to combine a tinting treatment with Latisse. On the morning of your appointment, you should not wear makeup around your eyes or put on mascara. If you use contacts to correct your vision, you should wear glasses to our office.
Will I Need to Keep Using Mascara and Other Types of Makeup?
Your makeup use will depend on the condition of your eyelashes and your personal preferences. As the hairs in your eyelashes become longer and fuller, you might decide to stop using mascara, eye shadow, and other types of makeup to improve your appearance. For example, you may decide that your eyelashes look dramatic and noticeable when you are not wearing any mascara.
Decreasing your use of makeup will allow you to save time in the morning. In addition, you won’t have to worry about your mascara when you go running or do other types of exercise. That said, this aesthetic product will not prevent you from continuing to use makeup to enhance the appearance of your eyes. For example, you might decide to wear makeup during a social event, important work meeting, or other significant occasions.
Can I Speed Up My Results by Using This Product Twice Every Day?
It’s common to use this prescription product to improve the appearance of your eyelashes before you plan to attend a wedding, go on an important vacation, or participate in another significant life event. If you are interested in seeing quick changes in your look, you might believe that you can speed up your improvements by applying this product twice every day.
This strategy will not work, and you should not try to achieve faster results by using this product twice a day. Instead, you should protect your health by following all of our application instructions. In particular, you should remember to use this product once every day.
Does This Eyelash Product Have Proven Results?
Scientific studies show that this product can change the appearance of people’s eyelashes. During these studies, people enjoyed a 25% improvement in the length of their eyelashes after they used the product for 16 weeks. In addition, people had a 106% increase in the thickness and fullness of their eyelashes. Further, the darkness of these people’s lashes improved by 18%.
Can I Use Other Treatments to Enhance My Facial Features?
After you achieve full, beautiful eyelashes, you may want to use additional aesthetic techniques to improve the appearance of your lips, cheeks, forehead, or other facial features. At Aesthetic Surgical Arts/Mia Bella Donna Medspa, we offer an extensive range of minimally invasive cosmetic treatments. In particular, we can use a variety of injectable products to smooth fine lines on your forehead and give you fuller lips.
For example, you might decide to use Xeomin to achieve a wrinkle-free forehead after you have finished improving your eyelashes. In addition, you can use dermal fillers to temporarily change the size of your lips. Although these injectables will not produce permanent changes in your forehead, lips, and other features, you can keep up your renewed appearance by getting additional cosmetic treatments at our conveniently located office.
