Long, elegant lashes are a highly admired trait. Many women struggle to achieve the look with gluing on fake lashes and competing mascaras that promise to lengthen and define your lashes, but until now there has never been an FDA approved eyelash enhancement product on the market that really can achieve those long, elegant lashes you desire. Latisse, from Allergen, is a prescription treatment that is intended to treat hypotrichosis (aka. having too few eyelashes). One of the main ingredients in Latisse is bimatoprost which is known to stimulate lash growth.
The before and after photos of proven eyelash growth on those who use Latisse are truly amazing, but as with all products and procedures, there are potential risks and side effects. Some women may experience redness, itching, irritation and dryness of the eyes. Discolorations of the skin on the area of the eyelid the treatment is applied on, and potential allergic reactions are also a possible risk. Speaking to your skin care professional is the best way to determine if Latisse may be right for you.
