Flutter your eyelashes and you will cause hearts to flutter. That is the power of the eyelash. Girls put on artificial eyelashes to achieve this effect. Celebrities and film stars have used it to good effect. However, not every girl is blessed with naturally long eyelashes. Putting on artificial eyelashes can be a bore. What is the remedy? The answer lies in the use of bimatoprost, commonly sold under the brand name Latisse.
Latisse is actually bimatoprost used to treat glaucoma. Regular use controls progression of glaucoma and ocular hypertension. The drug actually promotes flow of aqueous liquid from the eye and reduces pressure inside. That it is now being used to promote hair growth along the eyelashes is a discovery doctors and patients made while using the drug. They noticed an increase in the number of hair and thickening. This side effect has been exploited and Latisse is now promoted as a drug to encourage growth of thicker, darker and longer eyelashes. How it works is not exactly understood but end users are happy with the result.
You can buy original Latisse opthalmic solution. It is available only on prescription and the branded product is expensive as well. You can achieve the same effect using bimatoprost generic opthalmic solution that will work just as well. Those women who suffer from hypotrichosis or inadequate lashes can use it but only after a thorough exam by a doctor to preclude conditions that prevent its use.
How to use
Generic latisse also known as bimatoprost opthalmic solution must be appied the right way. You will have to be extremely careful how you use it. First wash your face and hands and remove any traces of makeup from around the eyes, especially the eyelashes and the eyelids. If you wear contact lenses remove them. Each pack comes with a number of applicators. Put one drop on the applicators and carefully apply it along the upper lash line. Do not apply to the lower eyelash. The solution automatically spreads to the under lash when you blink. Use the applicator only once and then discard it.
How long does it take?
The effects vary according to individuals. In general the results start to show from 1st week onwards. By the third or fourth month you will notice considerable thickening and darkening of the eyelashes. Eyelash length increases by about 25 percent after four months of use. Thickness and fullness increase by 106 percentand darkness increases by 18 percent. The effects are quite pronounced and they will change the way you look.
Generic or branded Latisse?
Latisse costs around $ 120 and it includes 60 applicators. The generic version, equally effective as the branded one, costs less than one-fourth the cost of the branded one. You will need to treat your eyelashes for at least four months and then continue a maintenance dose once every two or three days in order to maintain the thickness and darkness of the lashes. By opting for the generic version you will save substantially while achieving million dollar looks.
