Longer Lashes that Are Actually Yours
- Posted on: Feb 15 2019
Every woman would like to have longer, thicker, darker eyelashes. That’s why we have drawers full of mascara, eyeliner…maybe even fake eyelashes. And that’s why most mornings are spent with our eyes wide open in front of the mirror trying to make our eyelashes more than they actually are.
What if you could do it naturally, with your own hair?
You can. You simply need to come to Skin & Cosmetic Solutions and get Latisse, an FDA-approved prescription treatment for growing longer, fuller, darker eyelashes.
How does Latisse work?
No, you don’t have to head to Myrtle Beach and find one of those Zoltar fortune-telling machines on the boardwalk to grant your wish for longer eyelashes. Latisse actually helps you grow your own eyelashes!
Discovery of Latisse was accidental, as many discoveries are. Allergan was testing an eyedrop to relieve intraocular pressure in the eye. This is a treatment for glaucoma. Subjects in the test found that a side effect of the eyedrops was that their eyelashes grew during the study. As a response, Allergan began testing the active ingredient, bimatoprost, specifically for growing eyelashes. It proved effective and the FDA approved it in December 2008. It is believed that the bimatoprost increases the anagen phase (that’s the growth phase) of the eyelashes.
You apply Latisse nightly on the upper lash, just like eyeliner. The bimatoprost in Latisse stimulates the lashes to grow. The treatment works gradually and your eyelashes will experience real growth over time, generally 12 to 16 weeks. But you must stay with it — once you start the treatment, the topical solution must be applied continuously each night until you achieve the desired results.
When Latisse was tested it was shown effective in 78% of the participants at the end of the 16-week test period. Specifically, patients using Latisse experienced a:
- 25% increase in lash length
- 106% increase in lash thickness/fullness
- 18% increase in lash darkness
