Latisse vs. Eyelash Extensions

Posted on May 5, 2017 by Dr Elenora Fedoneko

Long, thick, luxurious lashes have the remarkable ability to make a woman feel more beautiful and give her that extra boost of confidence in her ability to take on the world. Cosmetics can create the illusion of bolder, more prominent lashes, but the temporary effect can have a long lasting negative impact. It’s an unfortunate reality that regularly using heavy mascaras and falsies can cause your natural lashes to become brittle and sparse. Luckily, there are a few alternatives available to elongate and accentuate lashes without the harm caused by trying to remove stubborn mascara or glue.

Two of the most popular methods to improve the appearance of your eyelashes are extensions and Latisse. Both options are touted for their ability to save women time and energy in their daily beauty rituals, but Latisse is the much simpler way to do it. Latisse is a liquid serum applied along the roots of the eyelashes that works by encouraging their growth and density.

Extensions, on the other hand, are a semi-permanent solution for a more voluminous look that covers your lashes with either synthetic fibers or animal-sourced hair. Many women have flocked to the promise of waking up to built-in glamorous eyelashes, but have come away frustrated with the costly upkeep and overwhelming amount of day to day maintenance of extensions. In Los Angeles, a full set of extensions costs upwards of $250 on average and can last about 3-4 weeks. Refills are recommended every 2-3 weeks at $80+ to keep your lashes looking good during their growth cycle. Extensions can last as long as your natural eyelashes lifespan, but using oil based make-up removers or even rubbing too vigorously at an itch can damage them.

Latisse is a wonderful choice for women that want to escape from the cycle of damaging their natural lashes in the pursuit of a better pair. Latisse is also the only FDA-approved treatment clinically proven to increase the length, thickness and darkness of your natural eyelashes. The medication’s active ingredient, bimatoprost, gives great results in as little as 8 weeks and the luscious look will be real and all yours.
