Introducing Latisse – the only prescription eyelash product approved in Canada to grow your natural eyelashes longer, fuller, and darker. With consistent nightly application, visible results happen within 8 weeks, with full, dramatic effects occurring in 12-16 weeks.
Latisse contains Bimatoprost topical solution. Like many things in Medicine, the eyelash growing properties of Bimatoprost was an incidental finding in the treatment of Glaucoma.
Latisse is applied along the upper eyelid nightly. It is extremely safe and never causes discolouration of the Iris (coloured part of the eye). It may cause slight irritation on the first few days of use, but this is generally very short-lived. On occasion it may cause slight discoloration of the border of the upper eyelid; but this is actually an attractive benefit.
Latisse at Vancouver’s Pender Medi Spa is sold in a box, which generally lasts for one month. It comes with applicators for each eye every day. Our staff has found it most effective if Latisse is applied to the outer tip of the applicator.
All the staff Pender Medi Spa have been using Latisse. Most noted dramatic improvement after 5 to 6 weeks of use. Many were satisfied with this result and thus reduced the use to 3 times per week, for eyelash maintenance. In all cases, the eyelashes were not only longer, but thicker, and darker. As a result, most were able to decrease their use of Mascara. Although Latisse is only applied to the upper eyelid, it also increases the growth of the lower lid lashes.
At Pender Med Spa we have used Latisse for eyebrows. We had an instance where a client presented with a previous traumatic injury to her eyebrows. The same dramatic results were achieved in regenerating the hairs in her eyebrow. Research is presently being done to see if Latisse could be beneficial for the scalp in male pattern baldness.
At Vancouver’s Pender Medi Spa, we have done comparisons with other “over-the-counter” products for eyelash growth. Latisse was found to be superior in every instance. Latisse is not available in pharmacies. Latisse can only be purchased from physician directed cosmetic facilities, like Pender Medi Spa.
