With everyone heading to their local eyelash girls to get eyelash extensions, it can leave you feeling a bit envious of those eye-popping beauties. However, due to the expensive upkeep and the probability that your natural eyelashes just might fall out too, eyelash extensions aren’t always what they’re cracked up to be. However, with Latisse, you can paint on lashes and get results in just a few months. Read on to learn more.
How Does Latisse?
Latisse is an FDA approved and clinically proven eye gel that is designed to lengthen, darken, and thicken your natural lashes once it has been properly applied. By brushing the gel onto the base of your existing eyelashes every day, Latisse works from the inside out to help give you stronger, longer, and darker looking lashes that will have even the eyelash extension girls themselves filled with envy.
How Long Does It Take?
Unlike lash extensions that give you instantaneous results, Latisse does take about 4 weeks for you to start seeing results and about 16 weeks to reach your full potential. However, you need to use Latisse on a consistent basis for you to get the optimal results, because otherwise it will take that much longer for you to get those luscious looking lashes.
Is it Painful?
Latisse should not be painful. Some patients may be a little bit sore around their eyelids but the pain should shortly subside. If for some reason you start to suffer from red eyes, inflamed eyelids, or an extensive amount of itchiness, you are likely suffering from an allergic reaction to Latisse and should call your doctor immediately.
Will Results Last?
Latisse is not a permanent solution to longer and fuller eyelashes. However, the results do last for quite some time. In order to receive the best results possible, however, it’s important for you to keep applying Latisse to your eyelashes every day.
