Dr. James Ridgway is proud to offer Latisse, the first and only FDA-approved way to grow longer, darker and thicker eyelashes.
What is Latisse?
Latisse is a version of a glaucoma drug that has been used with FDA-approval since 2001. Over time, glaucoma patients and their doctors noticed that a side effect of the drug was increased growth of the eyelashes, which led to the development of Latisse as we know it today.
How to apply Latisse
To obtain the best possible results from Latisse, it’s important to follow the application instructions carefully. You will need to apply the product once a day, and over time more beautiful and voluminous lashes will emerge. To ensure you never miss an application, we recommend integrating Latisse into your evening routine. After you’ve washed your face and removed your contacts, simply apply the product to your upper lash line only, using the single-use disposable applicator.
FAQ’s about Latisse
When will I see results from Latisse?
Latisse grows your lashes over time, which means you will experience a gradual transformation. After four weeks of regular applications, you will notice that your lashes are longer. By the eighth week, you will also appear darker and more luscious. And by your sixteenth week, your full results will be apparent, and you will possess longer, darker and more voluminous lashes that dramatically enhance your natural beauty.
Are there any side effects?
Latisse is an incredibly safe and effective way to grow longer lashes, as long as it’s used consistently and correctly. With that said, very minor side effects have been reported. The most common ones include itching and redness of the eyes. Some individuals experience dryness, darkening of the skin, redness and eye irritation, though this is extremely rare.
What happens if I forget an application?
If you forget to apply Latisse, do not apply more the next day to make up for it. Simply resume your normal schedule of one application each day.
Can Latisse hurt my eyes?
If applied correctly, no, Latisse cannot hurt your eyes. To avoid any complications, do not apply Latisse to the lower eyelid, and rinse thoroughly if the medication touches your eye.
What happens when I stop using Latisse?
Latisse will work to lengthen, darken and thicken your lashes only while you are actively using the product. Once you stop applying Latisse, your lashes will gradually return to their previous appearance within a few months.
Is there anyone who should not use Latisse?
Latisse is not considered safe for people who are allergic to any of its ingredients. In addition, if you have an eye disease or are at an increased risk for an eye disease, it’s important to check with your eye doctor before using this product.
