Longer eyelashes and eyebrows are a feature that is desired by many. They make your eyes seem bigger and make you feel more feminine. As with other topical treatments, there are always precautions to take. Latisse is a treatment prescribed for both aesthetic and medical purposes. It helps grow sparse and thin lashes or eyebrows, transforming them completely. In this article, we examine the many reasons why you need to try the Latisse eyelash growth treatment on your brows.
Some people overlook the dangers of over-tweezing their brows, which many people don’t realize can stunt hair growth. As is the case with eyelashes, eyebrows can also appear too thin, particularly as you age, but you can use Latisse to bolster your eyebrows and even make them a facial feature. It is important to note that Latisse has only received the seal of approval from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for use on upper eyelids (December 2008). This means you should check with your health practitioner before requesting and using a Latisse prescription to grow eyebrows.
A Short Latisse History Lesson
Global pharmaceutical company Allergan created Latisse in 2001, as a medicated eye drop to treat elevated intraocular pressure. During trials, some patients using this medication began to grow longer, fuller, and darker lashes as a side effect. The product received FDA approval after a clinical trial.
Why the Need to Grow Eyebrows?
In today’s society, full brows are statements of beauty. Some women attempt to use makeup to enhance their eyebrows and make them look fuller, fluffier, and thicker. In addition, eyelash extensions may look the part in enhancing eyelashes, but just how comfortable are they to wear? This is where Latisse enters the equation! As discussed earlier, this product was introduced in the pharmaceutical market to treat elevated intraocular pressure. One beneficial side effect of using Latisse arrived in the form of longer, fuller eyelashes, and it did not take long to use Latisse to grow eyebrows too. Medical practitioners are unsure just how Latisse works for growing longer eyelashes, but results are evident. Lashes have benefited from the use of Latisse. The same holds for those that want to grow eyebrows. Some dermatologists believe that Latisse simply increases the growth phase and lifespan of eyelashes.
Additional Tips for Creating Fuller Brows
Latisse is a great way to increase the fullness of your eyebrows by encouraging hair growth. For an even better brow outcome, we also suggest following a few other tips and tricks in addition to Latisse in order to maximize the health and thickness of your brows. Here are a few things you can do on top of starting Latisse that will optimize your eyebrow growth.
Drink Plenty of Water
Stay hydrated by consistently consuming enough water throughout the day. Healthy skin is the best base for growing healthy eyebrows and keeping yourself hydrated is a key factor in the overall health of your skin.
Try Castor Oil or a Serum
Castor oil is known to encourage hair growth and is also great for hydrating and soothing your skin. Using a skin serum is another great option to boost additional eyebrow growth. Both are safe to use and full of nutrients to help facilitate hair growth.
Use a Brow Conditioner
A brow conditioner will add supplementary nutrients to your eyebrows to help strengthen your eyebrow hair. Brow conditioners are also known to help brows look fuller and healthier, accentuating your hair growth while continuing your Latisse treatment.
In addition to offering Latisse, we also offer microblading services. Microblading is a great option for those who not only want thicker brows but also want darker and more prominent brows.
