You can obtain incredible looking eyelashes without the need for expensive and high maintenance lash extensions or super-powdered mascara. Latisse is an FDA-approved solution that keeps eyelashes in their growth phase for an extended period. This prescription growth serum can give you incredible results from merely using it once a day.
Here are our best professional tips for achieving thicker, enviously long lashes at home with Latisse.
How Latisse Works
Your eyelashes follow a similar growth cycle to the hair on your head. Eyelashes sprout, continue to grow for some time, and then ultimately fall out. Latisse works with your natural growth cycle to extend the desirable growth period. By contributing to eyelash growth, Latisse makes eyelashes longer, thicker, and darker in color. Full results typically appear about 12 to 16 weeks after daily application.
You can achieve optimal results by following these tips when applying Latisse.
Pro Tip #1: Upgrade Your Application Tool
Latisse comes equipped with individually wrapped brushes for sanitary applications. While these application tools work to deliver the product to the base of the upper lashes along the lash line, we recommend using a clean, fine point eyeliner brush to apply the solution instead. The package brushes can also collect product; however, a liner brush is thin and holds less product while allowing for a more precise application. Additionally, by using a brush that holds less product, your prescription will last longer. Each application must be sanitary, so your brush must always be sanitized and sterile before applying Latisse.
Pro Tip #2: Use Latisse Regularly
Perhaps the most critical tip for getting the most from this lash growth serum is to be disciplined with its application. Only using Latisse once in a while will not give you the most exceptional results. We recommend applying Latisse every night before bed to make the most of your lash growth cycle.
Latisse is most effective when applied to a clean surface, so before getting started, be sure to remove all makeup and contacts prior to application.
Pro Tip #3: Skip Your Lower Lashes
There is no need to apply the Latisse to the lower eyelashes. Using Latisse on only the top eyelashes, and then blinking after application will allow for the product to spread to the lower eyelid. This process will be enough to grow your lower lashes without applying Latisse directly to your lower eyelid.
Pro Tip #4: Don’t Play Catch Up
If you head to bed without applying Latisse to your upper eyelashes, don’t attempt to play catch-up. Missing a dose one night will not significantly affect your progress, so never try to apply more the next night. Simply apply Latisse the following evening to stay on schedule. Be sure to mark your calendar and take pictures throughout weeks 0, 4, 8, 12, and 16 so you have your own before and after photo gallery.
Pro Tip #5: Have Patience
Latisse takes time to work, and you will not see immediate results. Using Latisse more than once a day will not increase your eyelashes’ growth, so there is no need to apply the product throughout the day repeatedly. Exercise patience while using this product, and give yourself at least eight weeks to determine whether you are satisfied. You will begin to see the full effects of Latisse come into view around week 16. Speak with your provider after 16 weeks to discuss whether you should continue ongoing use.
