Women of all ages, and sometimes men, become conscious when their eyelashes are falling out and eyes does not seem to stand out with respect to other facial features. The eyelashes become weaker and delicate and result in abnormal falling out. Lack of nutrients in diet, frequent rubbing of the eyes, etc. makes your eyelashes sparse.
Latisse is the solution for many to help lengthen, thicken and darken eyelashes. It has the same active ingredient as the drug called Lumigan used for treating glaucoma. It was discovered that some people who were using Lumigan to treat their glaucoma found they had increased length, darkening and thickening of their eyelashes. This accidental but absolutely desirable effect led to the use of this drug for cosmetic purposes.
Use this medication once daily in the evening or as directed by Dr. Rokhsar, who has provided Latisse since its FDA-approval. To apply this medication, first wash your hands and face. Remove any makeup and contract lenses. Contact lenses may be reinserted 15 minutes after applying this medication. Place one drop of this medication onto the provided applicator. Then immediately draw the applicator carefully across the skin of the upper eyelid margin at the bottom of the eyelashes going from the inner part of your lash line to the outer part. Blot any excess solution that is applied beyond the eyelid margin.
Throw away the applicator after applying the medication. Repeat with a new applicator for the other upper eyelid. This medication is not for use on the lower eyelids.
