They say the eyes are the windows to the soul. While that may be up for debate, the eyes are what people see first when speaking to you. Naturally, this means taking care of your eyes and eyelashes greatly affects your appearance. However, some people can struggle with growing thick, lush, and dark eyelashes. That being said, eyelash density can be restored by treatments like LATISSE®. LATISSE is a cosmetic treatment designed to resolve eyelash inadequacy and restore lush eyelashes. Let’s take a closer look at what causes a loss of eyelashes and how LATISSE can help.
Causes of Losing Eyelashes
The loss of eyelashes is often caused by leaving eye cosmetics on for too long or from eyelash extensions. Leaving eye cosmetics on too long can damage the eyelashes and lead to a lack of eyelashes. Eyelash extensions often require eyelash glue that sticks to the natural eyelashes. Over time, the removal of eyelash extensions can remove eyelashes. Some medical conditions could be causing your eyelashes to fall out as well. One common one is blepharitis. Blepharitis is the inflammation and swelling of the eyelids due to clogged oil glands. This inflammation can cause issues with the eyelash follicles.
What Is LATISSE?
LATISSE is an innovative treatment designed to restore lost eyelashes and eyelash density. LATISSE is a prescription treatment that is applied every night at home. The LATISSE solution will be added to a small brush and applied to the eyelash line. LATISSE is the only FDA-approved solution for eyelash hair loss. The results will not be immediately noticeable. Instead, your eyelashes will grow and become denser over time. You can expect the treatment to take around eight weeks to show results and up to week sixteen before you see complete results. It’s important to note that LATISSE is not a permanent solution to whatever is causing your eyelash loss. Once you stop taking LATISSE, your lashes will likely return to their original appearance over the next few months.
