Question: I am 32, female, and I have been thinking about using Latisse to make my eyelashes fuller. I have got pretty long eyelashes already, so I am not really interested in making them even longer. Does Latisse increase the length of the eyelashes as well as the abundance?
Answer: Yes, typically Latisse increases the length of the eyelash as well as the thickness and abundance of lashes. It can also increase the pigmentation of the lashes as well. If you already have long lashes, you may find that the use of the Latisse product actually makes your lashes too long to the point where, if you wear sunglasses, the lashes can end up touching the lens of the sunglasses that can be bothersome. I have actually had patients who, after the use of Latisse, have actually had to trim the length of their eyelashes due to the fact that they felt they were slightly too long. It is at that point in time that I recommend they go on a maintenance dose of Latisse where they use it once or maybe twice a week to try to maintain whatever length and thickness they desire.
