I am one of the many women who have an issue with my eyelashes. It is not really of a concern to me because I am a positive person and I do not perceive this issue as “big” that should require tremendous and speedy solution. You see, I am not blessed with thick lashes…To make my dilemma worst, I had them cut… believing the tell-tale story that it will grow double…If you are curious what’s the effect, I’m sorry to disappoint you, it didn’t grow but in fact it worsen the problem…I now have short eyelashes countable with the fingers of my hand. If you can relate, you can perfectly understand my frustration to have long and thick lashes.
In order to hide the scarcity, I use false eyelashes to improve my look. It appears to me that using the product only worsened the situation. I observed that during one week use, my eyelashes began to fall one by one. I immediately stop its use to save my remaining eyelashes which at this point I believe to be less than 10. A friend of mine advised me to do the surgical treatment but I didn’t accept the idea because I am afraid of the pain of scalpel and surgical equipments. I also had read some side effects of this procedure and few disadvantages that hinder me to lay down my cards.
Believing that I arrived at dead-end, I consulted a physician and seek her advice to treat my problem. I don’t have any idea that I am under the medical condition called “hypotrichosis”. She prescribed Latisse (Bimatoprost) or its generic version Careprost once a day. Having experienced a lot of eyelash growth enhancement products cautioned me to do my own product research before buying for my own consumption. By utilizing the aid of the search engine in the world wide web, it brought me to a lot of good and bad reviews and feedbacks about Latisse. These varying and contradicting reviews only misleads my senses and invite confusion in the minds of people. I am making this feedback because I want to share my personal and true confession about Latisse.
Latisse absolutely works for me…Admittedly, I am hesitant to use it at first but I had no choice but to try my luck on Latisse to solve my problem. Cautioned by the reviews I read and the precaution indicated in the clinical pharmacology, I used Latisse strictly as indicated by my Doctor. During my first week of use, this product almost finds its way in the garbage bin. You see, I experienced eye irritation and redness. I immediate consulted my Doctor but she advised me that this effect is only common and that there is nothing to worry. I patiently disallow myself to be discouraged and go on using Latisse according to her instruction. For about 4 weeks of continuous use, I observed that my eyelashes are beginning to grow and not only that…I noticed many.
I thanked my Doctor in prodding me to continue its use; otherwise I had never experience my dream to have long and beautiful eyelashes. If you have some hesitations about using Latisse because of the negative feedbacks you received online, have confidence and take me as a living example of its success.
