We all want thicker, darker, and longer lashes, and there are so many ways to get them! The eyes are one of the most important aspects of your face, as they are usually the first feature you notice when looking at someone. So how do you get these luscious lashes? (Besides caking on the mascara, of course.)

Latisse. The first step to getting natural-looking lashes is Latisse. Latisse is a prescription treatment for hypotrichosis (inadequate or not enough lashes) to grow eyelashes longer, fuller, and darker. It’s extremely easy to use; you just apply it to your lash line every night before you sleep. In fact, if you know how to apply eyeliner, then you are already familiar with how Latisse is used! Within two months, you will start to notice your lashes getting longer, thicker and fuller/darker. To see your full results, you may have to wait up to four months while using Latisse. It has now become one of my favorite products that I really can’t do without!

Lash perm/lift/tint. We’re all busy, so anything to shorten the morning routine helps. A lash perm means you no longer have to curl your lashes every morning. It usually lasts about 2-3 months, and does not damage your natural lashes! A lash tint is especially great for blondes, redheads, or anyone with lighter color eyelashes. A lash tint will safely make your lashes a darker color, and along with a lash perm, you no longer will have to curl your lashes and apply mascara on a daily basis!

Contact us at Chow Center for Facial Plastic Surgery if you are interested in Latisse (retails at $120, but currently available for $89), or a lash perm and/or tint. We have an excellent medical esthetician on staff to help you get the natural (or glamorous) lashes that you desire!

Of course, everyone knows to use mascara to emphasize your lashes. I commonly look for mascaras with fibers to add extra thickness and length. I sometimes also use several different mascaras for maximum effect. For example, for a night out, I will use two different mascaras for extra thickness and length.
