FDA-approved lash-growth product

Share on Nextdoor

For decades, women have answered  "mascara!" when asked the proverbial "desert island" question. But what if there were a product that could transform your natural lashes to look like you've already slapped on the goop? That could free up your sole item for, um, fresh water, maybe...? Maybe not.

Now, what if that product started it's life as a treatment for glaucoma; still interested? In enters Latisse, the only FDA-approved natural-lash growth, thickening, and darkening treatment. 

An interesting side-effect occurred when glaucoma patients used the eye drop Lumigan— long, dark, incredibly dramatic lash growth. Now, the main ingredient in Lumigan is in Latisse, a prescription treatment for sparse lashes. Latisse is applied much like a liquid eyeliner, at the very base of the eyelashes on the lid once a day. The results are incredible, and can be seen starting at four weeks with full results after 16 weeks.

So sorry ladies, you'll need a prescription to get your hands on this magic wand. But if you look anything like Tilda Swinton you might  just get the M.D. go-ahead!
