Longer, fuller, darker lashes with a single drop!

Longer, fuller, darker lashes with a single drop!

I just started promoting Latisse in my clinic and I’ve come across several common questions from patients who are interested in using the product.  Here’s a quick Q & A summary:

1.  What effect will Latisse have on my eyelashes?  Latisse will lengthen your lashes as well as deepen the colour and increase the volume of lashes.

2.  Why does Latisse take up to 16 weeks for its full effect?  Your eyelashes have a growth cycle which from beginning to end is approximately 16 weeks.  When you begin to use Latisse, it will take a full growth cycle to ensure all of your eyelashes are exposed to the medication during the beginning of the growth cycle.

3.  How often and when do I use the product?  You must use the eyelash applicator on the upper eyelash line and use one drop per eye every night.  Some find that once a full effect is reached, you can maintain the eyelashes even with a drop every 2-3 days.

4.  Does the product work if I have no eyelashes?  No. The product does not stimulate new eyelash growth.

5.  Why does the product need to be prescribed by a optometrist/doctor? Unlike mascara, this is a topical therapeutic medication (0.03{4422c3e9d6d956ffe17c4a9703f8867adf328a271a08c00de098d82d34d0cfb5} bimatoprost) with potential side effects. All therapeutic medications must be prescribed and its continued use should be monitored by a doctor.

6.  How much does it cost?  A 5 mL bottle lasts approximately 3 months and costs $200.  At Avenue  Eyecare, this includes the initial consult and 3 month follow up visit for patients who are interested in trying the product.
