Long eyelashes have been a long-coveted sign of beauty. Nowadays, eyelash extensions have been growing in popularity but can be costly, hard to maintain, and for some people, annoying. Don’t worry though, there’s a better way. Let’s take a look at Latisse. Latisse is the only FDA-approved eyelash treatment that helps to grow longer, more voluminous, and darker eyelashes.
Eyelash extensions are not comparable to the disposable lashes you used to put on yourself.
Typically, a full set of lashes can cost anywhere between $150-400 (not including the 20% tip!).
It’s also not a one-and-done type visit either. Maintenance and fills end up costing anywhere between $50-165 per session. You usually will need to go in for a fill every 2-3 weeks or whenever the lash extensions have fallen out.
Latisse is an at-home treatment system that you can apply yourself. It comes in two different sized bottles, a one month or a two month supply. The one month size costs around $100 while the larger costs around $150.
Maintenance and Upkeep
As mentioned in the cost section, you’ll need to get your lash extensions filled every couple of weeks. The longer you go in between fills, the more your lash technician will have to replace when you do fill them. That means if you wait too long, your technician may make you get a brand new full-set meaning your appointment will take longer and cost more. You also will be discouraged from washing your face and rubbing your eyes while you have lash extensions.
With Latisse, the maintenance is very minimal. You apply the gel yourself and after about 60 seconds in the bathroom mirror, you’re all done. The only maintenance involved would be reordering bottles after you’ve used the product up. You may also rub your eyes and wash your face freely.
The results from eyelash extensions can truly be stunning. You also have more choices over how much volume or length you want from your extensions. It only takes a couple of hours to see results.
This is the main negative part of Latisse. It takes a few weeks to start seeing your results, but if you’re diligent and have some patience, it will pay off.
