Get Long, Luscious Lashes with LATISSE®
- Posted on: May 27 2015
Every woman loves the look of long, full eyelashes. Unfortunately, few
women are blessed with naturally luscious lashes. Some women spend countless
time, energy and finances on false lashes just to get that look. Others
simply assume long, beautiful lashes just aren’t for them.
What if you could get longer, thicker, fuller lashes—no falsies necessary?
You can with a product called LATISSE®!
What is LATISSE®?
LATISSE® is the only prescription treatment for eyelashes that has
been approved by the FDA. It is a version of the glaucoma drug called
Lumigan (bimatoprost) and was discovered by accident when eye doctors
and glaucoma patients began noticing that eyelashes appeared longer and
fuller as a side effect of the glaucoma drug.
How does LATISSE® work?
Although the exact mechanism that causes eyelashes to grow longer and fuller
is not known, research points to bimatoprost, the active ingredient in
LATISSE® that impacts the growth phase of lashes and increases the
percentage of hairs in eyelashes. LATISSE® is applied once a day to
the base of the upper eyelashes.
With daily use, it is proven to increase length and thickness of eyelashes
in just 12 to 16 weeks. In clinical trials of LATISSE®, 70 percent
of participants experienced a significant increase in overall eyelash
prominence, including length, fullness and darkness, after 16 weeks of
using the product.
Tips for success with LATISSE®
Just how much eyelash growth you experience while using LATISSE® is
partially dependent on proper use of the product. Use these tips to make
your LATISSE® treatment as effective as possible:
Make it part of your routine.Store LATISSE® near your other skincare products or maybe even your
toothbrush and incorporate application of the product into your nightly
routine. If you miss a dose,
do not apply double doses the following day.
Be patient.You will not notice a difference overnight or even after a few weeks. LATISSE®
takes time to work (about 12 to 16 weeks), so be patient.
Apply to clean eyelids.Remove any eye makeup and remove excess oil residue with soap and water
before applying LATISSE®.
Use the approved applicator. Only use a sterile, FDA-approved applicator provided in your kit. Do not
attempt to apply LATISSE® with a cotton swab. Don’t let the
tip of the bottle or applicator come in contact with your fingers or any
other unintended surface to avoid contamination.
Chart your progress.When you start using LATISSE® solution, be sure to mark your calendar
and take pictures throughout the weeks so you can have your own before-and-after gallery.
LATISSE® cannot be purchased over the counter like most cosmetic products.
It requires a prescription by a doctor. If you are ready for long, lush
