Who doesn't want long, full and dark eyelashes? Most women I know sure desire those lashes that actually make you look younger! Sure, you could put 10 coats of mascara on to try to achieve that length, but ultimately you'll just end up with a lumpy, clumpy mess.
That's why I love Latisse! Latisse was discovered by accident. When glaucoma patients reported their eyelashes growing so long, scientists took notice! They discovered that the bimatoprost ophthalmic solution in the glaucoma drop was the secret ingredient to eyelash growth. That's how Latisse was born! Bimatoprost makes the eyelashes more noticeable by causing more eyelashes to grow and making them longer, thicker, and darker.
It is important to use Latisse as directed. It is a once-a-day topical medication to be applied directly above the upper lash line. Be sure to use a clean brush each time and don't allow excess liquid to seep into your eye. With regular, daily use, full results are seen at 16 weeks, but noticeable growth is seen in as little as 8 weeks. When this medication is stopped, expect the appearance of the eyelashes to return to the way they looked before starting treatment.
Reported side effects include red, itchy and irritated skin around the eye & discoloration of the skin, which can be reversible. The side effect that seems to concern consumers the most is pigmentation of light colored eyes, especially those with green eyes. This is likely to be permanent, but has never been reported in clinical studies. If you try Latisse and find you experience any of the side effects, discontinue use of the product.
As a devoted Latisse user and a green-eyed girl, I couldn't give it up! I love the way it makes my lashes look. Frankly, I can't go a day without someone commenting on the length of my eyelashes. I've never experienced any of the side effects, and I love the results, so this girl is a Latisse girl forever!
