Have you been trying out various ineffective ways of getting longer eyelashes? Do you want a proven method, so you can go from stressing about your hair to growing them?
Eyelash lengthening is a procedure that utilizes a serum to treat hypotrichosis, a condition characterized by few or thin eyelashes. In just a few weeks, you’ll be able to see fuller, darker, and longer eyelashes. Here’s how.
FDA-Approved LATISSE® for Eyelash Growth
Latisse is the onlyFDA-approved eyelash growth serum. Though other over-the-counter products may claim to have the same ingredients as Latisse, it is vital to know that they are not FDA-approved. Make sure to speak to your doctor to be prescribed Latisse as it a prescription is required.
How Does Latisse Work?
Though the exact how is yet to be determined, what is known is that Latisse encourages the eyelashes to remain in the growth phase of the hair cycle. What is also known is the efficacy of Latisse.
Fuller, darker, and longer eyelash growth was seen in as little as a few weeks. Studies indicate that nearly 78% of study subjects saw a “significant increase in overall eyelash prominence.”
Latisse is applied every night, and full growth can take up to 16 weeks. Your results may vary, so it’s best to speak to your doctor to learn how to apply and utilize Latisse.
Why Does Eyelash Inadequacy Happen?
Eyelash inadequacy is when the eyelashes are brittle, thin, weak, or few. This can happen due to a variety of reasons. Disease, reactions to certain treatments and medications, and genetic and nutritional factors can all contribute to eyelash inadequacy.
By understanding the reason behind eyelash inadequacy, you may be able to maximize the growth you experience with Latisse. Speak to a doctor to understand if Latisse is for you and if it can help with your eyelashes.
