Obsessed with thicker, fuller lashes? So are we! As Optometrists, we have seen eyelash extensions gone wrong – from swollen eyelids due to glue allergies, loss of eyelashes, blepharitis, styes, infections, and even mites (yikes!). Our microscopes allow us to see everything in your lashes and glue. So why not consider a safer healthier alternative that allows you to grow your own natural lashes? Have we sparked your interest yet?
Thicker, longer, darker, fuller lashes are possible! EyedeologyTM carries both ZORIA and LATISSE® to help you achieve the ultimate lashes. Our ZORIA blog can be read here: eyedeology.ca/zoria
What is LATISSE®?
LATISSE® (bimatoprost topical solution 0.03%) is clinically proven to grow lashes longer, fuller and darker. In a clinical trial, lashes were 25% longer, 106% fuller, 18% darker and 78% of users experienced a significant improvement in overall eyelash performance. To make it easier on your schedule, LATISSE® is applied once a day and preferably at night as part of your bedtime routine.
How does LATISSE® work?
So how does LATISSE® work? LATISSE® is believed to prolong the analog phase (active growth phase) so your lashes have more time to develop. The exact mechanism is still not known.
We do not recommend using LATISSE® if are pregnant or breastfeeding; you have an active eye infection or inflammation; eyelid disease; eyelid infection; broken or irritated eyelid skin; or eye injury; needing eye surgery; or taking medications for glaucoma to lower eye pressure.
LATISSE® Side Effects
Like all medicines, LATISSE® can have side effects. The most common side effects include itchy and/or red eyes. This was reported in approximately 4% of patients. Less common side effects include eyelid skin darkening which may be reversible, iris pigmentation which is irreversible, eye irritation, dryness of the eyes, and redness of the eyelids.
