Are you tired of removing mascara each night? If you want fuller, thicker eyelashes without having do deal with messy eye makeup, Latisse may be your solution.
This solution prescription was originally used to treat glaucoma. As glaucoma patients were using Latisse, they found that their eyelashes grew darker and fuller thanks to the active ingredient, bimatoprost. Although researchers do not know exactly how bimatoprost thickens your lashes, research suggests that it is due to an increase in the percentage of hairs that grow and the duration that they grow while you are using this treatment. Today, Latisse is the one and only prescription approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for thin eyelashes.
It works by application; just apply Latisse to your upper lashes once daily. Within one to two months, you will begin to notice a change in your eyelashes. They will start to become thicker and fuller. By 16 weeks, they should have achieved their maximum volume. You will be able to swim, shower, even cry without having to worry about your eye makeup running.
If you ever decide to stop using this treatment, just stop the application. Your eyelashes will return to the same thickness they were prior to treatment.
