About

If you desire longer, fuller and darker eyelashes, then Latisse at Cerulean Medical Institute is for you. Latisse® promotes the active growth phase of the eyelashes.  Latisse® is prescribed by our cosmetic specialists in Kelowna, BC after thorough assessment of eyelash concentration and density.

Latisse is a serum developed after prescription eyedrop users noted increased eyelash growth as a welcome side effect. The product is available through a prescription and can be applied daily to the upper eyelid daily for at least two months. Through this time, you will notice your eyelashes gradually becoming thicker, longer, and darker. Full results are typically seen at about two months, but you should generally continue using Latisse to maintain the effects. Latisse is safe and FDA approved with very few minor side effects such as darkening of the iris or eyelids.

HOW TO APPLY LATISSE

Using Latisse is simple. If you wear contact lenses, remove them before applying the serum, and cleanse the eye area of any makeup. Latisse can be applied to the upper eyelid at night by gently brushing the serum across the lash line. It is important to apply the serum precisely and avoid allowing it to regularly run or drip to other areas, as this can cause unwanted hair growth around the eye. Be careful not to reuse single-use applicators or allowing the Latisse bottle tip to come into contact with other objects or surfaces to avoid infection or other complications. If you prefer, you can apply Latisse in the morning, but should always wait until the medication is thoroughly dry before applying any makeup. Latisse should not be applied to the lower lashes or to other areas such as the eyebrows. Most patients continue to use Latisse for up to 12 weeks. Follow your Cerulean Medical Institute cosmetic specialist’s directions according to your Latisse treatment plan.

CANDIDATES FOR LATISSE

Latisse should only be used by those who are 18 years old or older. Patients should be in good health without certain eye conditions. Latisse is also not advisable for those who are pregnant or breastfeeding. During your consultation at Cerulean Medical Institute, our cosmetic specialists will review your health and goals for Latisse to determine if it is a suitable treatment for you.

FAQs
Is Latisse® treatment right for me?

If you are looking for longer, darker, fuller eyelashes, then consult one of our cosmetic specialists at Cerulean Medical Institute for an approved prescription.

How does Latisse work?

Latisse works using a medication called bimatoprost ophthalmic solution, which causes thicker, longer, and darker lashes when applied to the upper lash line. This medication was originally used in prescription eye drops used to treat glaucoma, but after patients noted increased eyelash growth, Latisse was developed using the same active ingredients.

Does Latisse cause side effects?

Side effects from Latisse are mild. Some patients may experience dry eyes, mild itchiness, darkened eyelids, or darkened pigmentation in the iris of the eye. If applied incorrectly or imprecisely, Latisse may also trigger unwanted hair growth around the eye area. If you experience more severe side effects, you should immediately contact your doctor. Before prescribing Latisse, our cosmetic specialists carefully review patients’ health to ensure they avoid severe side effects or complications.

Can I wear mascara while using Latisse?

You are free to wear makeup, including mascara, eyeliner, or eyeshadow, while using Latisse. While you should cleanse any mascara away before applying Latisse at night, you are free to wear it otherwise.

Are over-the-counter lash growth serums as effective as Latisse?

Over-the-counter products which promise increased lash growth are not proven to be as effective as Latisse and may not be safe for all patients. The most effective option for growing thicker, darker, or longer eyelashes is Latisse.

Can I curl my eyelashes while using Latisse?

You can safely curl your eyelashes throughout your Latisse treatment.

Is Latisse permanent?

Latisse results may not be permanent. Many patients must continue using Latisse in order to maintain their results. During a consultation, our cosmetic specialists will explain how frequently you should use Latisse for best results.

Does Latisse work for eyebrows?

Some studies have found that Latisse can help patients grow eyebrow hair, though this use is not common or typically recommended.

Can Latisse change your eye color?

Some patients may notice that the iris, or the colored part of the eye, appears darker or has increased brown pigment after using Latisse. This side effect is usually permanent.

Can Latisse cause eye twitching?

If applied incorrectly, Latisse can cause complications including eye twitching. For this reason, it is important to follow all directions carefully throughout your Latisse treatment.
