Get Longer, Thicker Lashes with this Eyelash Extension Serum

Thinking about eyelash extensions?

Many women want fuller, thicker, darker lashes, and to enhance the appearance of their eyes without having to wear mascara at all times. After all, applying makeup day in, day out can become fairly tedious and take up valuable time.

As such, many women turn to eyelash extensions. While luxurious, this is an even more involved time-consuming process – but thankfully, there are alternatives.

If you’re asking yourself where you can get eyelash extensions, a better question to ask might be, “Where can I get Latisse treatment?”

Unlike false eyelash extensions, Latisse stimulates lash growth, helping your own lashes to look longer, fuller, and darker. This prescription eyelash growth product is both Health Canada and FDA-approved and can help you get the dramatic results you’re looking for, safely and easily.

Looking for real eyelash extensions? Time to look at Latisse!

What is Latisse?

Latisse (a solution otherwise known as bimatoprost ophthalmic topical solution, 0.03%) is a prescription product that is effective at increasing the length, volume, and darkness of eyelashes.

All that is required is for you to apply one small drop of Latisse solution to your top eyelash line (where the lashes meet the skin) using a small applicator. Most prescriptions have you conducting daily applications of a single drop before bedtime.

After a month of using Latisse, you will start to notice your lashes growing. However, it takes around 16 weeks to see optimal results from this treatment. Once you’ve reached the desired length of your lashes, you can start applying the solution every other day. If you decide to stop using Latisse completely, your eyelashes will eventually return to their original appearance.

How Does Latisse Work?

All hair has different growth stages, including eyelashes:

  • Anagen – The growing stage. Eyelashes will grow about 0.15 mm per day at this stage, to about 9 mm long, with 2 mm staying under the skin. The anagen stage typically lasts one to two months.
  • Catagen – The phase when the hair stops growing and the base of the lash dies, forming a club under the skin. The catagen stage lasts about 15 days.
  • Telogen – The phase when the eyelash sits in the skin. This stage last 4 – 9 months. When the anagen stage of a new lash starts, it pushes the old hair out of the follicle.

Latisse works by keeping lashes in the anagen (growth) stage for longer. This results in longer lashes, more new lashes growing at the same time, and old lashes falling out slower. Since there are more visible lashes growing, it also results in fuller eyelashes.

Bimatoprost thickens the eyelash bulbs, allowing them to grow thicker as well. This solution also stimulates melanin production in the eyelashes, so they will become darker. In some cases, the eyelid will also become darker with melanin production, causing the appearance of eyeliner. However, this is rare and not permanent.

So instead of getting false lash extensions, why not invest in the real thing? With regular applications of Latisse, you can have beautiful long, dark, and voluminous lashes that are all yours in less than 16 weeks.
