#Selfie-Improvement Cosmetic Procedures
Here's a snapshot of the procedures that men and women are turning to for #selfie improvement (and a bonus cheat sheet on apps that do the same thing)…
Latisse (bimatoprost ophthalmic solution)
Class: Eyelash lengthening drug
Mode of Action: Manufactured by Allergan, Latisse is a prescription-only medication that is approved for treatment of the inability to grow eyelashes (eyelash hypotrichosis). It contains the same active ingredient found in the glaucoma drug Lumigan. Exactly how Latisse works is not fully understood, but it may increase the amount of time that eyelashes grow.
Results: Expect a 25-percent increase in the length of your eyelashes, a 106-percent increase in the thickness/fullness of your lashes and an 18-percent increase in the darkness of your eyelashes if you use Latisse. These improvements tend to occur in eight weeks, with full results visible in 16. The improvements stop when you cease using Latisse.
Risks and Side Effects:
- Darkening of the skin around the eyelids
- Brown pigmentation of the colored part of the eye
- Red, itchy eyes
WARNING: Pregnant women and people with skin infections of the upper eyelids should not use Latisse.
Latisse costs approximately $120 for a one-month supply. It is not covered by insurance.
- False eyelashes or “falsies”
- Over-the-counter lash lengtheners
