Since the introduction of Latisse, there has not been a better alternative prescription for sparse eyelashes, or hypotrichosis. While Latisse is still the best option available in growing your eyelashes, it’s important to understand some basic facts about it as well as how eyelashes work.

The growth cycle of eyelashes

Your eyelashes grow in cycles of between one to two months and then transition into a resting phase before being replaced by new ones. Eyelashes can shed faster due to wear and tear, as well as in rare case health complications such as hyperthyroidism or cancer.

The Vein and Laser Institute recommends Latisse as an effective solution to correct abnormally inactive growth of eyelashes (also known as hypotrichosis). If you’re looking to see healthier and more consistent lash growth, schedule a consultation with our Vein and Laser doctors for a personalized treatment plan.

Can Latisse help in the regeneration of eyelashes?

Drs. Omar Barakat, Amjad Alkadri, and Vivek Mishra recommend Latisse to patients who have sparse lashes and want to correct that, as well as patients that have lost their eyelashes after chemotherapy. While each person’s condition is different, there are very good chances of successful eyelash regeneration with Latisse. The process of using the product is like applying mascara and is very quick, easy, and painless.

Latisse has proven to be very effective in treating sparse lashes, so call today to schedule a consultation with our Vein and Laser team to discuss Latisse.
