The Magic of Latisse®

You can’t spend a second on Instagram or browse through a celebrity-filled magazine without encountering photo after photo of women with long, luscious lashes. It’s doe-eyed inspiration for the masses, making millions of women – and men, too – long for the kind of full, flirty eyelashes that make people sit up and take notice. The makeup industry has responded with dozens of “revolutionary” and “cutting edge” mascaras that promise users the world, but what if you want to find a somewhat more permanent way to transform your own eyelashes into something worthy of a second look? Well, that’s when you turn to Latisse®.

What Is Latisse®?

If you’ve ever dreamed of a magic wand that you could wave over your face to produce longer eyelashes, you may have found your fairy-tale ending with Latisse®. Following several clinical trials, Latisse® has been approved by the FDA as a safe and effective way to promote eyelash growth. How exactly does Latisse® work? Basically, hair grows in phases. Each hair growth cycle contains a certain amount of hairs that grow to a certain length. Latisse® both increases the number of hairs in each cycle and then helps them grow longer than they would have otherwise. The result is longer, thicker eyelashes in just a few minutes per day!

How Does Latisse® Work?

Latisse® was made to be simple to use and easy to apply. In fact, the application process is so straightforward that it can be seamlessly incorporated into your existing daily beauty routine. After your face has been cleaned (and contact lenses have been removed, if applicable), apply other facial products you normally use. You’ll then use the sterile, single-use applicator included with your Latisse® prescription to draw along your upper lash line. Dispose of the applicator as directed and wait fifteen minutes before reinserting your contacts. That’s it!

How to Start Treatment With Latisse®

To buy Latisse® you’ll first need a prescription from one of the Latisse® doctors trained in its use. Should you decide to begin stimulating your eyelash growth with Latisse®, you can expect to see gradual changes to the length, thickness, and even the dark color of your lashes. In as little as four weeks, you may already see a difference; in just sixteen weeks, you may be well on your way to flooding Instagram with your own enviable set of long eyelashes.
