If you have always dreamed of possessing long, sexy eyelashes your wait is now over. There is finally a legitimate product available that really works and it is the only one that has been approved by the FDA. Latisse™, developed by Allergan, Inc., has been shown to quite effective in stimulating longer, thicker and darker eyelashes.
Latisse™ can be as easy to apply as mascara. It is applied once a day at night to the upper eyelid lashes only. Most women can expect to experience significant growth and thickening of their lashes within six to eight weeks. Full results can take up to sixteen weeks. Study results revealed that eyelashes averaged 25% greater length, 106% more fullness and 18% more darkness. This does not guarantee that your results will be identical. Mascara can further complement the results obtained by the usage of Latisse™.
The most common side effects of Latisse™ are an itching sensation and/or redness of the eyes which occur in 4% of patients. This is usually temporary and does not reflect an allergic reaction. Less commonly, there can be darkening of adjacent eyelid skin which resolves after discontinuation of usage. If you totally stop using Latisse™, your eyelashes will revert back to their previous appearance over a period of several weeks to a few months.
