Hyptotrichosis is the medical term for inadequate or thinning eyelashes. Latisse is the ONLY product of its kind, available by prescription exclusively through a physicians office.
It is important to note, Latisse is the FIRST and ONLY eyelash treatment to be approved by Health Canada proven to stimulate and promote actual GROWTH of your eyelashes. As your eyelashes grow, they also become thicker and darken in color. The results truly are dramatic!
Your consultation will include detailed instructions for correct application of Latisse, to avoid any possibility of side effects. It will also include obtaining some information wit respect to any history of glaucoma and special instructions for those who wear contact lenses.
When used correctly, Latisse is extremely safe and incredibly dramatic!
Upon completion of your consultation, you will be asked to sign an informed consent form, to be witnessed by Karyn and or Dr Baily.
It’s no surprise, there has been overwhelming interest followed by excitement after witnessing the incredibly outstanding results from using Latisse. Such positive feedback has created an extremely high demand. Women and men are loving this product and highly endorse and promote the use of Latisse to family and friends.
Since Latisse was first introduced a few years ago, the increasingly high demand serves to be challenge for us to keep stock. It literally flies off the shelf!
At Med-Aesthetics, we believe knowledge is power! Therefore we strive to empower our patients with as much CORRECT information, particularly when it concerns this kind of product.
HOW DO I USE LATISSE?
Latisse is applied topically, at night, to the base of your upper eyelashes. If you wear eyeliner you are familiar with the base of your lashes. Apply Latisse as you would eyeliner, in one smooth stroke across the base of your eyelid.
During your consultation, you will receive precise instructions, and be shown exactly how to use the brushes that come in the package. It is very important that you use ONLY the brushes that come with your kit and do not exceed the recommended dosage.
The results are gradual but dramatic, be patient…it’s worth it!
You will typically see more length and darkening in as little as 3- 4 weeks and should achieve full growth in about 4 months. This is not the ‘illusion of growth’, it is real, ACTUAL growth… YOUR OWN BEAUTIFUL, LUSH EYELASHES!!!
WHAT IS THE COST?
Initially, it is recommended that you apply Latisse once daily for 2 months. If you feel you have reached your desired outcome, you may then choose to switch to a ‘maintenance dosage’ which does not require a daily application, therefore the cost drops significantly.
HOW DOES LATISSE WORK?
Latisse makes eyelash growth possible because of it’s active ingredient ‘Bimatoprost’.
Bimatoprost affects the growth or ‘anagen’ phase of the eyelash hair cycle in 2 specific ways:
THE HISTORY OF LATISSE:
Latisse was created in 2001 by Allergan, the same company that brought us Botox and Juvederm. At that time it was being used as a medicated eye drop prescribed for the treatment of glaucoma (elevated intraocular eye pressure). Patients using this medication noticed an interesting side effect – while using the medication their eyelashes grew longer, thicker and darker.
This prompted Allergan to study the medication’s active ingredient, Bimatropost specifically for growing eyelashes. After a clinical trial, Latisse was approved by both Health Canada and the FDA.
