Does Latisse work?
In clinical trials, 78% of the 278 research participants had a significant increase in eyelash prominence, including length, fullness, and darkness. If you are unhappy with the length or thickness of your lashes, using Dr. Kong's San Francisco Latisse treatment could be the perfect way to have the lush, long, abundant eyelashes that attract.
Why am I losing my eyelashes?
Eyelash growth changes over time. Children typically have thick, full lashes. You probably had lovely, thick lashes as a child. With time, many women notice that their lashes are thinning, lighter in color, and have lost the luxuriant appearance of their younger years. Your eyelashes have four stages of growth: growth, rest, shed, and re-growth. The follicles of the eyelashes may stop producing lashes due to various factors, including the type of makeup used, the use of glued-on lashes that impact the function of eyelash follicles, or through exposure. Latisse stimulates eyelash growth so you can restore an attractive, lush set of lashes – always a sign of appeal and beauty.
