Ever since the days of ancient Egypt men and women have utilized different cosmetic enhancements to improve the appearance of their lashes. In those days people turned to substances such as soot to accentuate their lashes, and the bolder lashes were viewed as a sign of beauty. Luckily time has evolved cosmetic formulas, but the desire for longer and thicker lashes has remained the same.
If you examined the beauty routines of people from all over the world you’d find that millions strive to make their lashes more noticeable, and they often choose mascara to achieve this goal. Mascara is somewhat of an inexpensive way to make your lashes look more beautiful, but the formulas often affect negatively the health of the real lashes.
In 2008, Latisse received FDA approval to treat hyportrichosis. For years this condition has been notoriously hard to treat, but Latisse now offers hope to those suffering from inadequate or sparse eyelashes.
Below we have listed answers to a few of the most frequently asked questions about this groundbreaking treatment.

Laser hair removal is the most effective way to remove unwanted hair. In some patients, laser hair removal is permanent, while others may require “touch-ups” annually. Although sessions you undergo for laser hair removal are quite straightforward, there’s a great deal of science behind the procedure. Laser is actually an acronym of “Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation,” and the device releases light of a specific wavelength. Lasers weren’t originally used for the purpose of hair removal, but researchers noted in the 1970’s that using lasers for other medical uses resulted in hair loss. (more…)

Latisse is not just good for growing lush eyelashes, but it could also be the answer for non-invasive, non-surgical blepharoplasty (eye lift surgery). As you may know, the substance has been used for many years by ophthalmologists to treat patients with glaucoma. In that application, where drops actually go into the eye, bimatoprost (the pre-Latisse formulation of the same substance), acts to reduce pressure within the eye. Eyelash growth was noticed as a side effect — and soon Latisse was created, and then FDA-approved, for that newly discovered desirable result, formerly considered a side effect.
