Eyes are without a doubt the most prominent feature of your face, and your eyebrows add a lot to the beauty and definition of your eyes. That is why mascara is used – to highlight and accentuate the eyes. But what if you wish you had more luscious, fuller eyelashes?
Eyelashes serve the important function of guarding your eyes from dust and sweat and grime, but who says they can’t also look good while doing it? If you want fuller eyelashes, you should check out Latisse.
What Is Latisse?
Latisse is a topical liquid formulation designed to stimulate and promote growth of eyelashes. It is FDA approved and available in the U.S. Latisse, like most great discoveries, was an accidental finds. Patients undergoing treatment for glaucoma were seen to have developed longer eyelashes – a side effect of the drug bimatoprost. Latisse is in fact a variation of bimatoprost.
So no more hassle with messy fake eyelashes – get naturally lush lashes and look your best! You may not have known this, but hair has a lifecycle. A hair follicle falls and a new one pops up to take its place.
Latisse provides nourishment and prolongs the life of individual hairs, and it keeps them in place longer. This increases volume and offers longer, thicker eyelashes with proper color. It takes a few weeks for results to show. Latisse has to be used continuously. If you stop using it, your eyelashes will return to their previous state.
Why Don’t I Just Use Any Off-the-Shelf Hair-Regrowth Product?
Other regrowth options are less than ideal for the same reason that you cannot use hand soap to clean your contact lenses – it might work on skin, but it is not suitable for the eyes. Hair-regrowth products may be effective on hair, but we don’t recommend using them on the eyelashes.
Also, hair regrowth serums and creams are products targeted towards men, for the very male-specific problem of balding. Why would you want to use on your eyelashes what men use to stop their balding?
What is safe for the scalp may cause irritation in the eyes. So why not instead use a formulation specifically designed for the eyelashes? The pH levels of Latisse are designed to match that of your eyes and will not cause irritation or discomfort. It is as safe as contact lens cleaning solution.
How Do I Use Latisse?
Latisse should be used once per night every night. If you miss a night, do not double up to catch up. Instead, resume the once-per-night schedule. To apply Latisse properly, use one of the single-use applicators that comes with the medication.
A single drop of Latisse should be carefully applied to the upper eyelid in a manner that evenly coats the lash line. Once one eyelid has been treated, throw away the applicator and use a new one for the other eyelid; this helps to prevent spreading bacteria.
