Lashes are undeniably the flirtatious flare of any woman’s eyes. Lashes serve as the frame to one’s eyes. When lashes are short or thin, it can be very difficult to achieve the dramatic attention that a women’s eyes deserve. Many women turn to false eyelashes to solve the problem of thinning or very light natural lashes. This chore can be challenging, time consuming, and expensive.
What causes thinning eyelashes?
Eyelashes may be thin or become thin for a number of reason. Some of the reasons eyelashes may be thin include:
- Age is one of the primary factors leading to thin lashes. In general, hair growth changes as we age and we will experience thinner hair all over the body. The eyelash follicles are no different than the other hair follicles on our body, which can slow or stop producing hair all together.
- Improper use of mascara. Mascara is intended to help us accentuate our lashes. When this product is not used carefully, however, it may lead to breakage. Mascara should never be left on while you sleep, nor should the same tube of mascara be used for more than six months. When a comb is used to separate lashes after the application of mascara, combing should take place while the product is still wet. Combing dry lashes could cause them to break.
- Wear and tear can occur if you tend to pull on eyelashes or rub your eyes often.
Grow long lush lashes with Latisse
The secret to Latisse is the ingredient bimatoprost. Originally, this medication was used in an ophthalmic solution in the treatment of glaucoma. Patients treated with this topical medication showed signs of increased lash length and overall volume. Before long, the cosmetic use of bimatoprost was in development.
It is believed that bimatoprost extends the active growth phase of eyelashes, allowing the lashes to grow longer and thicker before the growth phase ends. Achieving your desired result with Latisse is as simple as applying the topical solution as directed on a daily basis. Many people begin to see a visible difference in their first month of use, while the full effectiveness of Latisse is most noticeable at 16 weeks and beyond. In order to maintain lush, long lashes, the use of Latisse must continue, however maintenance routines may be sufficient for maintaining desired length and fullness.
