If you’re tired of trying to bulk up your lashes with ineffective mascaras and other over-the-counter products, it might be time to consider the many benefits of regenerative medicine.
At Precision Regenerative Medicine, Tammy Penhollow, DO, specializes in using Latisse® eyelash regeneration therapy to improve the length and thickness of your lashes.
Dr. Penhollow can customize a Latisse treatment plan to enhance the health and appearance of your natural lashes without invasive procedures. She focuses on using regenerative therapy to meet your aesthetic goals, so you’re satisfied with the outcome.
Why you have thin, sparse eyelashes
The primary function of eyelashes is to keep dust and other debris out of your eyes. But your eyelashes are also a part of your overall aesthetic appearance. If you’re losing thickness or length in your eyelashes, it can make you look older than your years.
As you get older, your eyelashes can lose their thickness and even fall out. Age-related changes in your hair follicles are a leading cause of sparse eyelashes. You might also be prone to thin lashes because of:
- Eye infections
- Ingrown lashes
- Thyroid disorders
- Use of lash extensions
You might also be born with sparse lashes because of your inherited genetic background.
If you’re bothered by the appearance of your lashes and want a longer-lasting treatment than makeup, Dr. Penhollow can determine if Latisse therapy is an option for you.
How Latisse boosts eyelash health
Latisse is an FDA-approved, prescription medication that stimulates the growth of your natural lashes.
The medicine contains bimatoprost that experts believe affects the growth phase of your lashes to increase their length and thickness. The medication can also improve the number of hairs that form during the growth phase.
Ironically, the effectiveness of the medicine in Latisse was discovered when it was used in a medicated eye drop to treat increased intraocular pressure. Patients using the drops saw a noticeable improvement in their lash quality after just a few uses.
Simple to use with long-lasting results
Latisse therapy is incredibly simple and convenient. You apply the solution once a night to the base of your upper eyelashes. This treatment isn’t safe for application on your lower lashes.
Dr. Penhollow recommends using the medication for at least two months to maximize the outcome of your treatment. She can also determine how long you can use the medicine to retain your results.
Generally, you can see visible results of your treatment within four weeks of starting Latisse. The full benefit of your treatment can be seen within 16 weeks as your real lashes grow longer, thicker, and fuller than ever.
Many people continue using Latisse in the long term with no side effects or complications. Stopping the medicine will cause your eyelashes to eventually return to their original state.
