Do you desire thicker, fuller lashes? Are your eyes irritated and itchy when using eyelash extensions? Do you find that traditional mascaras don’t give you the lift and length you desire for your lashes? If this sounds like you and you live in the area of Huntington Station, NY, it may be time to talk to Dr. Charlotte Ann Rhee about a solution: Latisse.
What is Latisse?
Dr. Charlotte Ann Rhee describes Latisse as a prescription medication that offers longer, thicker, fuller, and darker eyelashes. Latisse is formulated with a medication called bimatoprost ophthalmic solution 0.03%. It was originally formulated for patients with glaucoma as an eyedrop, but one positive side effect was improved lashes as patients continued to use the product. This is how Latisse was developed and became an aesthetic treatment instead of a medical one!
How does Latisse work?
Latisse works by increasing the growth phase of the eyelash hair follicle. The anagen phase then creates more lashes and helps lengthen the ones already present. The results? Thicker, fuller, and darker lashes without the use of mascara or false eyelashes!
Who is a candidate for Latisse?
Any woman who is interested in ditching the mascara and obtaining naturally longer lashes can ask their doctor about Latisse. This cosmetic treatment can be used for anyone who does not have an allergic reaction to treatment. It is not covered by health insurance as it is strictly an aesthetic product.
Do I need to see a doctor for Latisse?
Yes. Latisse is a prescription product and can only be obtained by connecting with a doctor who can provide a full evaluation and prescribe the medication to an individual. Patients will need to continue to see the doctor and obtain prescriptions in order to maintain the results they achieve with use of this medication.
