You can have longer, fuller, thicker and darker upper eyelid lashes as early as 6-8 weeks by just applying Latisse® to your lids. Latisse® is available by prescription only and can be purchased at The Center for Plastic Surgery at MetroDerm, P.C. in Atlanta, GA. The active ingredient in Latisse® solution is bimatoprost, a prostaglandin which prolongs the growth cycle of the eyelash. By extending the hair growth cycle, lashes grow longer, more lashes remain present, and the results are natural, not coated as with sticky mascara or glued on as with extensions or false lashes.
A once daily application is all that is required. This is done at night after cleaning the face, removing any eye makeup and removing contacts. The solution is applied only to the upper lash line and excess solution is blotted. Because the active ingredient affects all hair, it is important to wipe away solution that drips beyond the lash line to prevent unwanted hair growth. Your skin care professional will give you all the necessary application instructions at the time of purchase. For more information about Latisse® click here.

Results of Latisse®
The effects are seen as early as 6-8 weeks which include an increase in length, thickness, and darkening of the eyelashes. By weeks 8 to 10, most users have a growth “pop”; and by 16 weeks, the full effects are in place. Ongoing use of Latisse® is required to maintain results. If you stop using the product, your lashes will return to their original condition, although after a full 16-week cycle, some users notice that they can skip 2 to 3 nights per week and still see satisfactory lash fullness and length. Official product use instructions call for everyday application.
