Taking care of our eyelashes is no different than taking care of our hair. We use conditioners, mask, and serums to lengthen and strengthen our hair why wouldn’t we do the same for our eyelashes, after all we can be pretty rough on our lashes. We apply and remove mascara day after day. Just the removing of mascara can be very hard on our lashes. Even if we use a very gentle mascara remover we can still see the loss of eyelashes and over time our lashes seem to get thinner and shorter. Not only that but trying to obtain longer fuller lashes we may use false or fake eyelashes. Removing false false lashes for makeup can also remove our natural lashes leaving us with less and less eyelashes. So what can we do to get our lashes to grow back longer and stronger. We need to take care of them.
Fkhair have probably have seen the Brook Shield commercials for Latisse. The commercial show that their product can give us fuller and longer lashes in sixteen weeks. The start of the Latisse product came about after patients that were using Allergan, a prescription for IOP started reporting that they were growing dark fuller and longer lashes. Allergan then began to study the ingredients to target growing eyelashes. It is believed that Latisse increases the eyelashes grown by increasing the growth phase cycle. Our lashes, just like any of the hair on our body goes through a growth cycle. The Anagen phase is the stage when our false lashes for makeup are actually growing. If the anagen phase can be increased then the number of eyelashes can also increase.
The clinical studies of Latisse showed that 25% of patients see an increase in the length of their eyelashes, 106% increase in the thickness and 18% increase in lash darkness.
To get Latisse you need to get a prescription from your doctor. This can be an ophthalmologist or a dermatologist. Be sure that they are aware of the medications you are taking. There are some side effects so be sure to talk about them with your physician.
Can you only get longer thicker lashes by getting a prescription for an eyelash serum?
Actually no. There are numerous eyelash products out there that can be very beneficial to our lashes. You can get eyelash serums online or from your local drug stores. There are also many home remedies that have been suggested to help lengthen our lashes. Some of the top suggestions include Vaseline, olive oil, castor oil and vitamin E oils.
How do we use eyelash conditioner or serums?
The eyelash conditioners and eyelash serums are applied to clean eyelashes that are free from mascara or any other makeup. The products is applied before bedtime and left on overnight. The next morning we apply our makeup as we normally would.
The results of these products do vary from person to false lashes for makeup. Some see no effects at all and some see extreme results. The amount of time it will take to get fuller longer lashes can also vary. Some say they have gotten results in as little as two weeks. Latisse claims that you can get more than double lash fullness in sixteen weeks.
