Latisse is a prescription topical medication used to help patients grow longer, fuller eyelashes. As one of the products that Dr. Derek Steinbacher encourages patients who desire eyes that pop and stand out from the crowd, Latisse is a non-surgical solution that will deliver you with great results. However, it’s important that you make sure that you are doing everything possible to keep your eyes and lashes healthy while using latisse. Read on to learn more.
Before you start applying Latisse, make sure that you are applying it to a clean face and clean eyes. If you are applying it at night, use makeup remover in order to fully get off any mascara or eyeliner from the day. If you are applying it in the morning, wash your face with a little bit of face wash to remove any dirt or oil that may have built up on your face while you were sleeping. By applying Latisse to a clean face, it will adhere better and give you results that last.
You may not realize it, but it’s really simple for your Latisse applicator and brush to become instantly contaminated. Contamination of these products could result in you developing an eye infection and from the Latisse working as effectively as possible. In order to make sure they don’t get contaminated, don’t touch the applicator to anything— including your fingers. Additionally, don’t set the applicator down on the countertop in between treatments because it could build harmful bacteria.
You may think that if you lose or misplace your Latisse applicator that you can simply use a clean Q-tip in order to apply it. However, the Latisse applicators are designed to target every eyelash and deliver you with the best results possible, whereas a Q-tip will just get all over the place.
If you are planning on using Latisse or if you have been using Latisse for a while and aren’t familiar with the above information, make sure that you follow the tips above. To learn more about Latisse or to schedule an appointment to learn more, contact Dr. Derek Steinbacher’s office today!
