Have you always wanted to have great eyelashes, but never have despite all the expensive makeup? Have your eyelashes gotten thinner and more sparse over the years? If so, you may have eyelash hypotrichosis, which is a medical condition characterized by inadequate and sparse eyelashes.
LATISSE® may be the answer to your problem! LATISSE® solution contains bimatoprost, which stimulates the growth phase of eyelashes producing increased length and thickness, as well as increased number of hairs.
People who have struggled for years with embarrassingly inadequate eyelashes have flocked to use LATISSE®. LATISSE® is the first and so far the only prescription treatment for lash growth and is FDA-approved.
Because it is a prescription medication, you will need to be examined by Dr. Burke and discuss the risk vs. benefits of this treatment. Following the medical discussion, Dr. Burke’s staff will instruct you in the proper application of LATISSE®. The LATISSE® solution is applied once a day to the base of the upper eyelashes at bedtime.
The stimulation of eyelash growth is gradual at first and for the first month. Growth becomes more noticeable in the second month of daily use with full growth in four months. Once full growth of eyelashes is to your satisfaction, Dr. Burke usually recommends decreasing frequency of use to every other day or even three times a week to maintain your eyelashes at your desired length and thickness.
