Is Latisse Only for Cosmetic Purposes?

September 21, 2011 Posted in: Huntington, NY Plastic Surgery, Skin Procedures
Latisse has been marketed as a solution to mascara as it can create thicker eyelashes. However, Latisse is not only for cosmetic purposes. After all, our eyelashes are part of our anatomy and they have a reason for being existing. They are designed to protect the eyes from irritants. As a result, individuals with insufficient eyelashes are more at risk.

Practical and Cosmetic Purposes of Latisse

Latisse lengthens and thickens the eyelashes. Fuller lashes provide a better barricade  to shield the eyes from harm. Individuals may have insufficient lashes due to genetics or external factors. Unfortunately, lashes that fall out or break off take a substantial amount of time to grow back.Latisse is an effective prescription medication that needs to be applied to the base of the lashes. It can lengthen, thicken and make the lashes darker. It does not necessarily replace the need for mascara permanently, but individuals that never go without can be truly fresh-faced if they choose.
