There are many different things that we like to do to make ourselves as beautiful as can be. We do what we can to keep our bodies looking youthful through good dieting and exercise, and of course, there is the help of laser hair removal to keep our bodies silky smooth. Botox is great for doing away with wrinkles and fine lines. But there are ways to beautify ourselves that not everyone considers.
Many people absolutely love the look of longer eyelashes. But, as many models in magazines have shown us, the adding of fake eyelashes is becoming the norm. Now, not only are fake eyelashes not meant to be permanent, they are also not the best way to obtain a natural look, and this can be just as important as the length of the eyelashes themselves.
Latisse is a medication that was initially used to treat glaucoma. They found that patients taking this medication (eye drops) grew longer, thicker eyelashes. So this medication (for eyelashes) is applied with a brush just to the eyelids (not in the eyes unless you have glaucoma) and it usually takes a few months to see significant results in terms of eyelash growth and thickness. They are working on other applications for this medication as well, and in time we will see what they come up with next.
Latisse is a once-a-day application treatment. You apply the solution using a brush to the base of your upper eyelashes. It helps your eyelashes to grow thanks to its active ingredient known as bimatoprost. It has shown to affect the growth of eyelash hair in two ways:
Latisse costs less than having eyelash extensions done regularly.
Depending on your use, it will last a couple months on average.
Your eyelashes will return to their normal size and length over the next few months.
Once nightly application is the normal frequency for Latisse application.
Once you are stable and happy with your eyelashes, we recommend application once every 2-3 days for maintenance.
