At the Bengtson Center, we recommend LATISSE® for longer, thicker, darker eyelashes. At our Grand Rapids office, we have found that this treatment gives many of our patients results that provide an excellent base for mascara or extensions, while others discover that they no longer need either! Our skilled team will help you decide whether LATISSE® is right for you.
LATISSE® is the first and only prescription treatment approved by the FDA for inadequate or insufficient eyelashes, producing longer, fuller, and darker lashes. LATISSE® makes eyelash growth possible for our Grand Rapids patients because of its active ingredient: bimatoprost. Effective and easy to use, it is topically applied once daily to the base of your upper eyelashes-just like eyeliner. It works gradually and remarkably, generating noticeable results after 4 weeks, full results after 16 weeks.
While LATISSE® is a new treatment in eyelash growth, it was developed through years of research by Allergan, a pharmaceutical leader with over 60 years of expertise in prescription eye care products.
Your eyelashes will experience real, measurable growth beginning at 3 to 4 weeks.
LATISSE® works from the inside out. As the treatment progresses, you'll first begin to see changes in length. Gradually, you'll notice more thickness and darkness in your lashes. If you're satisfied with your results by week 8, don't stop there. Stick with the treatment, and after week 16, you'll see significant results-and so will others.
Once you begin, you must continue applying the topical solution each night and follow the directions for your best outcome. Remember, you will continue to see improvement with regular use. And also remember, if you stop using this product at any time, your eyelashes will gradually return to their previous appearance.
