Every woman likes to have full looking eyelashes. Thick eyelashes bring attention to the eyes naturally without the need to wear false eyelashes. There are now several products on the market that can help stimulate growth of the eyelashes.

Types

If you're looking for a prescription-strength eyelash growth treatment, you can speak to your doctor about Latisse. Latisse uses a special applicator to apply a bimatoprost ophthalmic solution that makes eyelashes darker and fuller. An over-the-counter option is the Talika Lipocils Eyelash Treatment Gel, which uses plant-based extracts to achieve eyelash growth. RapidLash can be used on both brows and eyelashes to enhance growth with a formula of proteins, vitamins and minerals.

Solution

Most of the eyelash growth treatments, including RapidLash, state that you should be able to see a difference within 30 days of using the product. However, you need to remain consistent and remember to apply the solution on a daily basis in order to see results. You can also help your body produce hair better by maintaining good nutritional habits. Take a daily vitamin, eat a well-balanced diet and drink plenty of water.

Effects

Ideally, the eyelash growth treatment that you use will produce darker and fuller lashes. If the treatment works, you may be able to forgo mascara and still have striking eyes. With the prescription drug Latisse, lashes can grow longer, thicker and darker because bimatoprost can prolong the eyelashes' natural growth phase.

Considerations

Eyelash growth products will work differently on each individual. Some women may notice an immediate change in their eyelash appearance while others will not. If you don't see any improvement within 30 days, discontinue the product and try something else. To chart your progress, take pictures of your eyes each week during the treatment process.

Warning

Make sure that whatever eyelash growth treatment you select has been approved by the FDA. Also, if you notice any type of allergic reaction (i.e. itching, redness, swelling) you should stop using the product immediately and contact your physician.
