Transform your eyelashes from sparse to spectacular with  LATISSE® at The J. Parry Clinic for Facial Plastic Surgery and Aesthetics in Cleveland and Columbus, OH. This FDA-approved treatment has helped countless individuals achieve the lush lashes they’ve always desired. Stay with us as we explore how it works, the science behind lash growth, and how to use LATISSE and maximize your results. 

Understanding Lash Growth

Eyelash growth occurs in cycles like the hair on your head. There are three phases of lash growth: anagen (growth phase), catagen (transitional phase), and telogen (resting phase). Each eyelash follicle is in a different phase at any given time. Genetics, age, and health can influence the length and density of your lashes, unfortunately, many people struggle with short or thin eyelashes due to these factors.


LATISSE is a prescription ophthalmic solution that promotes the growth of longer, thicker, and darker eyelashes. Originally used to treat glaucoma, researchers discovered that one of its side effects was the enhancement of eyelash growth. It works by extending the anagen phase of the lash growth cycle and increasing the number of hairs that sprout during this phase, leading to fuller and more impressive lashes.

How to Use LATISSE and Maximize Results

Consistency is key with LATISSE, patients often find that incorporating the treatment into their nightly routine is convenient. Following application instructions carefully will avoid potential complications from overuse such as irritation and hyperpigmentation in eyelid skin, and although rare, a change in eye color. To minimize the occurrence of after-effects and maximize your results here is a step-by-step application guide.

  1. Start with a Clean Face: Ensure your face is clean, and that the eye area is dry and free of makeup and contact lenses are removed. 
  2. Apply to Upper Lashes Only: Using the provided sterile applicator, apply one drop of LATISSE® to the base of your upper lashes. Avoid applying to the lower lash line to prevent unwanted hair growth.
  3. Avoid Rubbing Eyes: Be gentle with your eyes and avoid rubbing to prevent the product from spreading to unintended areas.
  4. Maintain Hygiene: Use a new applicator for each eye to prevent contamination and infection.


Visible results typically begin to occur within four to six weeks. Clinical studies have shown that LATISSE® can increase lash length by up to 25%, lash thickness by 106%, and lash darkness by 18%. These results highlight the transformative power of LATISSE® and why it remains a popular choice for eyelash restoration.
