enhance eyelashes

Whether you were born with sparse lashes or your eyelashes have thinned over time, bimatoprost ophthalmic solution, in Toronto, Ontario, can help you grow longer, thicker, fuller eyelashes in just a few weeks. When applied to the upper lash line once a day for several weeks, bimatoprost darkens your eyelashes and causes them to thicken and increase in length. Your eyelashes will appear darker and more dramatic – without makeup.

Bertucci MedSpa offers this prescription-only eyelash enhancement in Toronto, Ontario for the treatment of insufficient eyelashes. Call 905-850-4415 or contact us today to learn more about eyelash enhancement. Bertucci MedSpa is located in Woodbridge, Ontario, and serves men and women in Vaughan, Richmond Hill, Aurora, Thornhill, Mississauga, Barrie and all of Greater Toronto.

Prescription bimatoprost solution is effective for people who feel that their eyelashes are sparse, short, or pale in colour. Many women choose bimatoprost to achieve the effects of mascara without having to apply makeup – allowing them greater freedom from their daily beauty rituals.

Bimatoprost is a very safe prescription treatment that is suitable for most people. However, you must first be evaluated by a physician to ensure that you are a good candidate for bimatoprost. Dr. Bertucci or one of our other skilled physicians will review your medical history to determine if bimatoprost solution is right for you. Most of our patients receive their evaluation and prescription the same day.

Bimatoprost solution grows your eyelashes gradually, over a period of time. The liquid solution is applied along the upper lash line once daily for a period of 4 to 16 weeks. A visible difference in eyelash growth is usually seen within 8 weeks with full results appearing after 16 weeks. You can choose to stop treatment at any time once your desired enhancement is achieved.

If you stop using bimatoprost solution, your eyelashes will return to their previous appearance after several weeks or months. You can refill your prescription at Bertucci MedSpa to maintain your results.

Q: Are there any side effects?
A: Studies have shown that bimatoprost is safe for most people and that negative side effects occur in less than 4% of users. However, some minor reactions may occur, such as redness and itchiness near the application site. Eye dryness or irritation is also experienced in certain individuals and some people have reported hyperpigmentation or darkening around the treatment area (this symptom resolves after discontinued use). Because bimatoprost solution stimulates hair growth, unwanted hair may occasionally appear in other areas affected by bimatoprost. This can be minimized by applying the solution only as directed.

In rare cases, some patients with certain allergies may experience more severe reactions, such as lash fall-out. An examination from one of our physicians is necessary to minimize the potential risk of adverse reactions.

Q: Will bimatoloprost solution change my eye colour?
A: There is a risk that bimatoprost solution for eyelash enhancement may cause darkening of the iris. This is primarily a speculative concern that has arisen from studies reporting a change in iris colour among people using Lumigan, which has a much higher quantity of the same active ingredient in the eyelash enhancement solution. Lumigan is an eye drop that is used to treat glaucoma and is applied directly to the eye. In some people with fair skin and green or blue eyes, Lumigan caused an irreversible darkening of the iris. It is important to note that although Lumigan and the eyelash enhancing solution contain the same active ingredient, Lumigan is applied directly to the eye while the eyelash enhancing solution is used along the upper lash line. When applied properly, bimatoprost eyelash enhancing solution should not cause a change in eye colour.

Q: What other services are available?
A: Many people who visit us for prescription bimatoprost solution also take advantage of our non-surgical procedures such as wrinkle smoothing injectable treatment or laser hair removal.
