Today, there are 2 different types of eyelash enhancers: retail cosmetic products and prescription.
Retail cosmetic products
These products are also called daily or short-lived enhancers. The retail enhancer is a very fine fabric fiber made in a powder or liquid type. It is used to the eyelash as a base cost. As this fiber is placed utilizing a standard mascara wand, it either hangs on to the lashes utilizing the regular mascara as adhesive or adheres to the lashes directly.
One disadvantage of this form of enhancer is that the very thin fibers tend to exfoliate into the eye throughout and after it is applied also when using it. This will also quickly and rapidly end up being adhered to contact lenses and may be tough to remove without stretching or tearing a lens. Somebody who wears extended-wear lenses are at an increased threat for inflammation and infection due to this type of residue. For individuals who use glasses, the addition to the eyelash length might lead to the lashes brushing versus the within the lenses when blinking. This can be really irritating at times, however it does likewise include residue that might smear on the lenses and could possibly scratch them.
Semi-Permanent Prescription Products (like Latisse).
This particular enhancer is in eye liner form and used each night with sterile applicators. It is simply dabbed along the lash line of the upper lid. This spreads through the night with natural blinking and closing of the eyes while sleeping.
A downside to this product would be the nighttime expense; around $4 which has to do with $120 every month. For a typical patient, this is not an economical program. This is also not long-term without continuous use; the lashes will go back to their regular length within weeks. Adverse effects may likewise be experienced, consisting of eyelid skin darkening, itching or allergy reaction, redness of the eyes, dry eyes or staining. An enhancement to the eyelashes is usually a vanity scenario and someone considering this treatment should decide whether look deserves some of these possible side effects.
