A gradual thinning of the eyelashes is an oft-overlooked side-effect of the ageing process.
Over time, an older woman’s eyelashes can become noticeably thinner. This thinning can drastically change the framing of a lady’s eyes, betraying her age in the process. Indeed, many people can’t appreciate the detrimental effect that lacklustre lashes can have on the self-confidence of a woman.
Previously, eyelash accentuation was only achievable through thickening mascara, the use of false lashes or via implants. However, a recent technological development, from Latisse, has meant that thicker, fuller lashes are now achievable for many women.
Latisse’s solution came into being due to the hit-and-miss nature of the alternatives.
Mascara, long thought to be the most essential piece of a woman’s handbag puzzle, is well-known for the millions of competing products on the market. All of these products claim to have their benefits, but some are more effective than others.
Falsies can be very tricky to apply. We’ve all seen the plastic look they can give to a girl, if used incorrectly.
Latisse products have whipped up a storm in the UK fashion press, of late. Latisse has trumped the alternative solutions, by improving the thickness of lashes in a matter of weeks.
Originally gaining popularity in the US, Latisse was, and still is, the first and only FDA-approved prescription treatment for inadequate lashes. Using the active ingredient bimatoprost, this opthalmic solution is believed to affect the anagen phase of the eyelash growth cycle. The treatment is applied topically, to the base of the upper lashes, increasing the length and number of hairs present. Under guidance from a trained physician, full re-growth can be achieved after 16 weeks. This means that patients will be able to live life to the full, in no time at all.
