Latisse Treatment vs. Eyelash Extensions

January 12th, 2021

It’s usually agreed that eyes are the most important feature of your face. This common opinion is the driving factor that influences people to spend extra time ensuring that their eyes stand out. If maintaining eye-makeup on a daily basis is too time consuming, you should consider Latisse eyelash treatment.

Typically, most people will get eyelash extensions or a lash lift, but recently, new treatments like Latisse have been a popular choice. If you’re still deciding what treatment is best for you, then keep reading to find out more information.

Latisse Treatment vs. Eyelash Extensions

A bit About Eyelash Extensions

Eyelash extensions are known to provide you with a more natural look. These eyelashes are applied one by one using a semi-permanent glue and the procedure can take roughly 1-2 hours.

Although lash extensions provide you with a beautiful look at first, the look doesn’t last too long and it requires plenty of maintenance. For instance, you should be prepared to blow dry and brush your lashes after getting out of the shower. Also, as weeks pass, you will notice them falling out and your lashes will look less full in some areas. Lash extensions typically have to be re-filled every 3-4 weeks in order to maintain a full look, however waiting 6-8 weeks is occasionally standard as well. Getting lash extensions can be stressful because you have to be extra careful about how you wash your face, take off your makeup or sleep.

Reasons You Should Consider Latisse Eyelash Treatment

Latisse is the first and only prescription treatment approved by the FDA that can be used for eyelashes to grow longer, fuller and darker. This treatment contains the active ingredient bimatoprost, which allows the lashes to stay in the growth stage, and prevent them from falling out. The best part about the Latisse treatment is that they enhance your own lashes; your lashes are not fake.

If you apply this prescription topically, once daily on the base of your top lashes, you should begin noticing results in 8 weeks, with full results after 12-16 weeks. Latisse has gained positive feedback to the point where some people have complained of their lashes growing too long. At that point, you would just use the treatment less, however this only proves how successful latisse really is!

Clinical trials have confirmed that Latisse has the ability to grow your lashes 25% longer, 106% fuller and 18% darker.

Which One is Best for You?

Either one of these lash treatments will allow your eyelashes to stand out and look beautiful. However, picking the right one depends on a variety of factors. For instance, if you want immediate results, eyelash extensions will be essential. Though, if you’re willing to wait, then Latisse would be a perfect option. It’s a very low maintenance treatment that only takes a few minutes out of your day and your eyelashes won’t be fake!
