Let’s Talk Lashes!
One of my absolute favorite developments in beauty products in the last few years is the eyelash enhancer, Latisse. Like many of you, my girlfriends and I have tried every kind of false eyelash. There’s the store-bought kind that leaves glue residue on your fingers, clothes, and everything else except your eyelashes. There’s the strand-by-strand salon-applied kind that works great, but costs a fortune in money and time. And, of course, there are hundreds of brands of mascara, all of which work to varying degrees. To be honest, these are all reasonable options, but in my opinion, Latisse beats them all. For anyone who doesn’t know, Latisse (also known as bimatroprost ophthalmic solution 0.03%) is a product that you apply just above your upper lashline once a day, and it increases the growth of your natural eyelashes in a few months. It makes them come in thicker and longer, sometimes so much so that you have to trim them! The company says it takes 16 weeks to see the full results, but most of my patients say they see a big difference in about 6-8 weeks. As soon as you stop using the product, your lashes will gradually return to normal in about a month or two. Some of my patients like to start Latisse a few months before a big event like a charity function or a wedding, and then stop after it’s over. Of course, some of them never stop once they see how well it works!
