How to Get Longer, Fuller Lashes

Most women have to use an eyelash curler or apply layers of mascara to get the thick, dark lashes they desire. While these are completely normal steps in a beauty routine, what if we told you there was a way to cut back? Learn how your lashes can become stronger, longer and fuller—without the extra beauty tools and products!

How to get long and strong lashes

Why Do I Have Thin, Weak Lashes?

There are several reasons why you may not have healthy-looking lashes. If they don’t grow as they should, you may have hypotrichosis, a condition in which a person experiences hair loss or reduction. However, if your lashes are brittle and weak, you could have a vitamin deficiency. Just as being deficient in Vitamin B, Vitamin E or iron can affect how your nails and hair grow, this works the same for lashes! If you think this concern has to do with your health, be sure to consult your doctor.

Some everyday beauty products you use on your lashes could affect their strength as well. Most makeup and cleansers contain chemicals that may weaken your lashes, causing them to thin or fall out more frequently.

Even if you don’t wear makeup or have a health condition, your lashes could simply thin out and weaken with age. No matter what has caused you to be unhappy with the appearance of your lashes, there’s a way to amplify your look—Latisse®!

What is Latisse?

Latisse is an FDA-approved treatment that helps grow longer, fuller and darker lashes—and the treatment is simple! All you need to do is apply the solution to the base of your upper eyelashes every night. Over time, you will gradually notice improvement in the appearance of your lashes.

You will start to notice an increase in length by week 4, more fullness and darkness by week 8 and your most enhanced results by week 12. Though most patients are satisfied with their results at this point, don’t stop applying the solution! You won’t reach the full effect of the treatment until week 16—finally having the dramatic lashes you’ve always wanted.
