If you want to achieve full and luscious-looking lashes, it might be time to visit Dr. Schrader to talk about Latisse. Latisse is the only FDA-approved lash serum proven to safely grow and thicken your eyelashes.
This product is ideal for people with hypotrichosis, a medical condition that leads to inadequate eyelash growth. And Latisse can also help you regain lost eyelash volume from aging. We’ll talk more about what Latisse is and what its benefits are here so keep reading.
What Is Latisse?
Latisse is an eyelash growth serum that improves the length, thickness, color, and overall look of the eyelashes. This FDA-approved treatment creates full natural-looking eyelashes through a daily prescription. It’s also a great alternative for women who want to try out more natural methods that don’t involve eyelash extensions.
But how exactly does Latisse stimulate eyelash growth and cause your eyelashes to become fuller, longer, and darker? The main active ingredient in Latisse is what creates these effects. Bimatoprost stimulates hair growth along the eye line by mimicking the body’s natural growth chemicals.
What Are The Benefits of Latisse?
Latisse has many potential benefits for patients. Not only does this serum improve lash length and thickness, but it can also treat eyelash loss. If you have naturally thin lashes and want to change your look, this is the perfect product.
People with lash loss due to medical conditions can also greatly benefit from this product, as Latisse is clinically proven to stimulate and encourage eyelash hairs to grow faster and stronger.
Other benefits of this serum include its convenience and effectiveness. Latisse is easy to use and can be applied even if you wear contacts. Best of all, this is one of the safest ways to naturally grow your lashes to fit your beauty standards.
Side effects of this serum are minimal and you can see your lashes start to grow out within the first month of treatment. If you are interested in receiving a Latisse prescription treatment, you can reach us through our contact page here or call us at this phone number: 609-279-0009.

How Should Latisse Be Used?
Latisse is hassle-free and easy to use. All you need to do is apply the serum to your eyelashes daily. We recommend placing a few drops of Latisse on an applicator. You can use an eyeliner brush or something similar to coat your eyelashes in the solution.
But you want to make sure that your brush is sterile and gentle enough to place on the eyelashes. Carefully place the serum over your eyelashes starting from one end to the other. Go from the base of your eyelashes like you are applying mascara.
However, don’t use too much of the serum and only use it once a day. While Latisse is not dangerous it can irritate the skin so try to keep it on your eyelashes and don’t let it drip down your face.
