Ever since “batting your lashes” to flirt became popular around the 16th century, long, beautiful lashes have been something to be envied. Until recently, though, little could be done aside from painstakingly gluing false lashes onto your lids. Thankfully, now we have Latisse.
Latisse is the first and only FDA-approved treatment for hypotrichosis, or inadequate eyelash growth. Latisse is a breakthrough treatment that enhances eyelashes by increasing their length, thickness and darkness. This treatment contains bimatoprost, which increases the amount of hairs and the duration of the eyelash growth process.
Most patients notice significant results from Latisse after just four weeks of continuous use, with full results visible after 16 weeks. Results can vary and there are a few minimal risks to consider, so consult with your doctor before using Latisse.
