Latisse in Ottawa: For the Love of Lashes

Latisse in Ottawa

There’s been a growing interest in Latisse in Ottawa. At Concept Medical, we know why! Latisse is the first FDA and Health Canada approved prescription treatment for inadequate eyelashes, growing them longer, fuller and darker. Mascara can only work to make existing lashes longer or thicker. However, Latisse in Ottawa actually works to produce more lash growth. In clinical trials, Latisse users reported significant improvements in lashes, making them up to 106% fuller and up to 25% longer, as well as deepening the colour of the lashes.

The History of Latisse in Ottawa

The same producer of Botox and Juvederm created Latisse in 2001. Years before a medicated eye drop was developed to treat elevated intraocular pressure. Many patients using this medication also began to grow longer, fuller, and darker lashes. This ‘side effect’ led Allergan to study the medication’s active ingredient, bimatoprost, specifically for growing lashes. As an ‘eyelash grower’, bimatoprost’s function is slightly different. After clinical trials, Latisse was approved by the FDA in December of 2008. At Concept Medical, Latisse has been offered to our Ottawa patients since 2010.

Latisse – Grows Lashes Longer, Fuller and Darker

Latisse is a once-nightly treatment applied to the base of your upper eyelashes, as instructed by your doctor. Latisse improves lash growth because of its active ingredient, bimatoprost. Latisse is believed to affect the growth phase of the eyelash hair cycle in two ways. First, Latisse increases the length of the growth phase and second, Latisse increases the number of hairs in the growth phase. Latisse works gradually over weeks. You may start to see more eyelash length in as little as 4 weeks after starting Latisse and you should achieve maximal results in 16 weeks. As with any medication, it is important to consult with a physician in order to understand possible risks of using Latisse.
