There are hundreds of different ways to appear to have longer lashes. Fake eyelashes with messy glue, makeup tricks, curlers, diets, transplants, over-the-counter drugs, and more are all inconvenient methods that could be avoided.
Latisse is the first and only FDA-approved prescription treatment for eyelashes. The results are thicker, longer and darker lashes. Beautiful actress and model Brooke Shields even suggests using Latisse for longer, fuller lashes. It is not only safe alternative to the chaos of other methods, but it is also delicate to the sensitive surrounding area. Latisse is applied to the base of the upper lashes and is clinically proven to be highly effective in almost 80 percent of patients.
Patients that dab Latisse on each night before bed will start to see longer lashes after 4 weeks and full results are achieved in 16 weeks. The medication will automatically spread to the lower lashes when you blink
Bimatoprost is the medication, and Latisse is the brand name it was approved under by the FDA. At first Bimatoprost was marketed under the name Lumigan, which was used as prescription eyedrops to treat glaucoma. When the eyedrops came in contact with eyelashes, they began to grow as an unexpected side effect, which ultimately led to the creation and marketing of Latisse as an eyelash growth prescription. Eyelash improvements will last as long as it is being applied, in other words, eyelashes will return to their original growth length once you stop applying Latisse. Millions of bottles have been sold since its release in 2010 already and with millions of satisfied customers, it’s worth avoiding fake fall-offs, tricks and aggravation.
