Our lashes tend to be long and thick throughout our youth, but a natural thinning occurs as we age. LATISSE® has been proven to reverse this decline in lash growth. It is the first and only FDA approved cosmetic treatment used to treat people with too few lashes. With Latisse, lashes can again achieve a longer, fuller, and thicker appearance.
How does Latisse work?
Latisse contains an ingredient called Bimatoprost that is known to enhance lash growth. It was originally used to treat eye conditions like glaucoma.
It is believed that Latisse affects the growth phase of the eyelashes. It does this in two ways. First, it increases the length of time that your eyelashes are in the growth phase. Second, it increases the number of eyelashes that are in the growth phase. The result is longer, thicker and fuller lashes. See the results for yourself.
What to expect
Dr. Nancy Swartz began studying the medication in Latisse even before its release as an eyelash enhancer. As board-certified ophthalmologists and experts on the product, Dr. Swartz and Dr. Cohen are excellent resources for patients seeking Latisse eyelash growth solutions in Philadelphia, in South Jersey, or on the Main Line.
After an initial consultation at one of their offices (in Bala Cynwyd, Voorhees, or Center City), patients can purchase Latisse eyelash solutions from Drs. Cohen and Swartz for use at home. It is applied at the base of the eyelashes using a sterile applicator provided with the bottle (or another applicator; see our blog, How To Get The Most From Latisse). It is important to note that with Latisse, eyelash growth works gradually, with most patients seeing full results around the end of week 16. After stopping the use of Latisse, eyelash growth will cease and patients' eyelashes will return to the length that they were before they started the treatment.
