How can I get my eyelashes to grow?


Answer by  DRS (621)

If you are willing to spend a lot of money, Latisse is a clinically tested treatment proven to lengthen and thicken eyelashes. I'm not sure if medical insurance covers this treatment, as it is cosmetic. Otherwise, invest in a good lengthening mascara to make your eyelashes look longer.

Apart from judicious use of an eyelash curler (apparently you get better results if its warmed) and mascara, there is also a prescription drug called Latisse which might help.

There used to be nothing you could do but now they have some products like Latis that help you grow your own natural lashes. You could always use fakes if you had to as well- there are many kinds that look very natural.

There is no way to get your eyelashes to grow- unfortunately you are stuck with what you have got. But you can buy fake eyelashes to make them appear longer.

You cannot speed up the rate at which your eye lashes grow. You could add mascara to thicken the eye lashes you do have. You could also put on fake eyelashes to make your appear longer.

In 2008, the FDA approved a prescription product, Latisse, that is proven to lengthen and darken the eyelashes when applied to the base of the upper lash line over a period of months. The effects are not permanent, however, and lashes will return to normal if use is discontinued.

There is a prescription on the market that can be used to grow eyelashes. While this product is primarily used to treat glaucoma, patients noted their lashes were growing longer and lusher with its use. Consult your doctor for a prescription and to see if this product would be suitable.

There is a new product on the market called Latisse that will make your lashes grow. This is a prescription eyelash lengthener but it isn't for everyone. The FDA has approved its use but there are some side effects sometimes. If this isn't for you, skillful curling with an eyelash curler can make lashes look longer.
