Thick, long eyelashes are a sign of youth and beauty. It’s true that your lashes start to thin and fall out as you age. You may miss the full and beautiful fringe you used to have, and you probably think those days are gone forever. Worse yet, you might have never had lush lashes to begin with. Fortunately, there is a topical treatment that can help to regrow lashes and return them to their former luster, or even better. It’s called Latisse®, and it could work for you!
Latisse®, also known as bimatoprost, was approved by the FDA to treat hypotrichosis, or having inadequate eyelashes, in 2008. It was initially used as a glaucoma medication. Soon, patients began reporting fuller, darker and thicker eyelashes after regular use. Now this medication is most often associated with its aesthetic purpose to provide users with more beautiful lashes. Latisse® can only be obtained by prescription. The product improves real lash length. It’s much more natural-looking and convenient than alternatives such as false lashes, extensions or special mascara.
How It Works
Latisse® is easy to use. You should apply it to the base of the top eyelashes, using the enclosed applicator. Get a new applicator for each eye. Dispose of them once they’re used in order to avoid cross-contamination. It’s often recommended to put it on in the evening before bed. Once-daily application for 16 weeks is the standard protocol. It’s important to follow the instructions included in the package, though it’s really quite simple.
What to Expect
You should expect to see darker, fuller and longer lashes begin to develop slowly over time. It’s crucial that you continue using Latisse® for the entire 16 weeks, otherwise your lashes will revert to their original state. It’s okay if you forget. Just get back on schedule when you remember. Don’t try to double up. After 16 weeks of daily use, you can begin to apply the medication every two to three days for maintenance purposes.
