Today’s bold makeup looks call for a full, thick set of lashes. Full eyelashes also frame and highlight the eyes even on people who prefer not to wear makeup. Some of us have been naturally gifted with lush lashes while others are always on the hunt for the perfect lash enhancement. If you are tired of strip lashes and longer-term lash extensions, Latisse® may be a viable solution to help you get the longer, fuller lashes you crave. Originally introduced to the marketplace as a treatment for glaucoma, Latisse® lash serum was approved in 2008 for use as an eyelash growth product after glaucoma patients and their doctors noticed the drug was growing the patients’ lashes as a side effect of receiving treatment. Today, people who simply want the benefit of longer, fuller lashes may use the serum for cosmetic purposes.
In addition to lengthening and thickening the lashes, Latisse® also darkens the eyelashes and extends the growth cycle. The user applies the product by using a sterile applicator to apply the product to the upper lash line at night after the face has been cleaned and contact lenses removed. The serum naturally spreads to the lower lash line when the user blinks. It is important to note that the eyelashes typically return to their prior state after the user stops using the serum.
