Latisse® in Seattle, WA
Women will often go to extreme lengths to improve the length, thickness, and darkness of their lashes. While mascara and eyelash extensions can help temporarily accentuate their appearance, these treatments are not permanent and often leave the eyes irritated. Fortunately, there’s now a way for patients to get the bold lashes they want that last — Latisse®. North Sound Dermatology Aesthetics offers Latisse® to residents of Seattle, Everett and neighboring communities.
Say Goodbye to Mascara and Eyelash Extensions with Latisse® at North Sound Dermatology Aesthetics!
Latisse® is an FDA-approved treatment used to increase the length, thickness, and volume of the lashes. After applying this product every night for 16 weeks, patients can achieve striking lashes without the need for extensions or mascara.
Seventy-eight percent of patients who underwent Latisse® treatments in a clinical study reported that they saw significant improvements in the appearance of their lashes. The study showed an average:
- 18% increase in lash darkness
- 25% increase in lash length
- 106% increase in lash fullness and thickness
How Does Latisse® Work?
In 2001, Allergan developed a medicated eye drop used to treat intraocular pressure. During the clinical trials of this product, researchers noticed that patients began to grow longer, fuller, and darker lashes. This led Allergan to conduct a separate study of the medication’s active ingredient, bimatoprost, to better understand the effect it had on the eyelashes. After a series of clinical trials, researchers concluded that bimatoprost could be safely used to add volume and definition to the lashes, and Latisse® was created. While it is not entirely understood how bimatoprost is able to improve the appearance of the lashes, it has been clinically proven to be both safe and effective.
What Can I Expect from Latisse® Treatment?
Latisse® is a treatment that is completed in the comfort of your own home. Patients must apply the product to the base of their upper eyelashes once per night. Before applying the product, it’s important that any makeup or contact lenses a patient may be wearing are removed. The entire duration of the treatment lasts 16 weeks, after which, patients will have beautiful, stunning lashes for years to come.
