Latisse is first and only product FDA approved to grow lashes – fuller, longer, darker – in people with inadequate or not enough lashes. Conducted in a U.S. clinical study, 78% of people using Latisse saw a significant increase in overall eyelash prominence. 106% felt their lashes were fuller. 25% of patients experienced longer lashes and 18% felt their lashes darkened. Latisse solution works gradually. Results can be seen in as few as 4 weeks, but maximum results can be seen after 16 weeks of use.
Tretinoin and Hydroquinoin
Tretinoin (commonly known as Retin-A) is a common treatment for acne. In the cosmetic industry, it is also known for its anti-aging benefits. It helps skin cells turn over faster so the skin can renew itself more quickly. As we age, this turnover process slows down. Hydroquinone is a topical bleaching agent commonly used to reduce pigment such as brown or age spots in the skin.
What to know….
Avoid exposure to sunlight or artificial UV rays (sunlamps or tanning beds). This medication can make your skin more sensitive to sunlight and sunburn may result. Use a sunscreen (minimum SPF 30) and wear protective clothing if you must be out in the sun. Avoid getting this medication in your mouth, eyes, or nose, and avoid applying it to your lips or in the creases of your nose. If it does get into any of these areas, rinse with water. Do not use the medication on sunburned, wind burned, dry, chapped, irritated, or broken skin. Wait until these areas have healed. Your skin may be more sensitive to weather extremes such as cold and wind. Protect your skin with clothing and use a moisturizing cream or lotion as needed.
Avoid using skin products that can cause irritation, such as harsh soaps, shampoos, or skin cleansers, hair coloring or permanent chemicals, hair removers or waxes, or skin products with alcohol, spices, astringents, or lime. Do not use other medicated skin products unless your doctor has told you to.
It is very common to have a “transition” period of dryness and flakiness, especially around the eyes and mouth. Continue using the product as recommended. You are welcome to apply moisturizer as needed to soothe and hydrate your skin. The transition period may last 1-2 weeks, but not all patients experience
this side effect.
The FDA classifies Tretinoin and Hydroquinoine as a category C drug. This means this medication may be harmful to an unborn baby or breast feeding mother. Do not use this medication if you are pregnant or breast feeding.
How to use….
Gently wash your face with a mild cleanser and follow your regular skin care regime. Apply a pea sized amount to your fingertips at night and rub in gently and completely. Apply to full face (or areas being treated by lasers/acids). Do not use cream between brow bone and eye lid, as the cream can travel
and get your eye.
Avoid getting this medication in your mouth, eyes, or nose, and avoid applying it to your lips. If it does get into any of these areas, rinse with water.
Using this medication in larger amounts or applying it more often than prescribed will not make it work any faster, and it may increase side effects.
