Live Young carries the only prescription eyelash product approved In Canada to help grow your own eyelashes – they become darker, fuller and longer naturally!
LATISSE® is a prescription medication ( 0.03% bimatoprost) which is similar in structure to a group of products our bodies naturally produce. It is approved for the treatment of hypertrichosis of the eyelashes, that is inadequate lashes. In clinical trials, the majority of Latisse® users saw significant improvement in lash length, thickness and darkness with regular daily use for 2 months. The sterile solution is applied to the base of the upper eyelid lashes. As with many treatments results may vary with each individual, in our experience however, the majority of users are very satisfied with results. Improvement is maintained as long as treatment is continued.
Patients enjoy pairing Latisse® lashes with our other great eye treatments such as a brow lift and glabellar treatment with Botox® and/ or The Madonna Lift using The SmartXide Dot laser. Both of these treatments open the eye, lift the lids and soften lines- creating a better showcase for long, lovely lashes.
Potential side effects of Latisse include: Itchy, red eyes, dry eyes, darkened eyelids, darkened brown pigmentation in the iris (in persons with blue eyes this is not a risk and usually not a concern for dark brown eyes), and hair growth around the eyes if the medication regularly runs or drips off the eyelids. Most side effects disappear after discontinuation of use except perhaps the darkening of the iris.
