Latisse is an ophthalmic solution that contains 0.03 % bimatoprost, which is a biological compound that belongs to the class of prostaglandin derivatives. Latisse is used to enhance the growth of eyelashes and make them darker, more expressive and attractive.
Bimatoprost was initially used by ophthalmologists in the treatment of glaucoma, which is an eye disorder caused by increased intraocular pressure. They attempted to use a prostaglandin derivative to prevent the severe consequences of untreated glaucoma, which may result in optic nerve damage and eventually cause blindness. Bimatoprost works by effectively decreasing the pressure inside the eyes, therefore relieving glaucoma symptoms. However, doctors have observed that some patients treated with bimatoprost over time developed longer and darker eyelashes, which enhanced their physical appearance, especially if the patients were women. This led medical researchers to elaborate an ophthalmic solution that contains 0.03% bimatoprost to be specifically used for eyelash growth in people with thin and short eyelashes, which is now called Latisse.
Latisse for the eyelashes growth
Latisse is now used by many women for esthetic reasons, to accelerate the growth of the eyelashes in a gentle way. Latisse contains bimatoprost, which is a prostaglandin. Prostaglandins are active biological molecules that perform several essential functions in the human body, including promoting cellular growth, decreasing the amount of liquid in the eye chambers, acting as an immune signaling molecule and many others. In the case of Latisse application, bimatoprost stimulates the growth of individual eyelashes, makes them darker and more expressive, which creates a more attractive and seductive look.
Precautions and side effects
Latisse should be carefully applied on the upper eyelashes at their base. Try to avoid contact of Latisse with the eyes, although this is not a dangerous occurrence since bimatoprost is also used for eye problems. Latisse is a safe and effective solution to enhance the growth of your eyelashes by stimulating their nutrition and increasing their length. Rare and mild side effects may include irritation and redness of the eyes. In very rare cases, a darkening of the eye pigmentation may occur. If you have short and thin eyelashes, Latisse is a great solution to enhance their appearance and make them grow thicker and darker, which is consistent with a more expressive look. Before considering treatment with Latisse, it is a good idea to consult your eye doctor and receive specific recommendations. It is also important to make sure that you have a good eye health, and that Latisse treatment will not interfere with eye drops that you may have been prescribed for an ophthalmic disorder.
Give Latisse a try and impress your friends and the people around you with the expressive, “deep” appearance of your eye through an enhanced eyelash growth.
