The makers of Botox have received FDA approval for their new drug, Latisse. Latisse is a cream-based drug to help increase the amount of eyelashes. It’s also supposed to lengthen lashes and darken them.
Some of the potential side-effects listed though are frightening, in my opinion. Eye redness, itchiness, permanent darkening of lids or whites of eyes and more. Plus I’m sure it’ll cost an arm and a leg. Current quotes are around $4 per day and you have to use it continuously to maintain the benefits. My wallet is cowering in fear.
What do you think of all the voluntary “medical” procedures that are presented to us these days? Botox, lipo, eyelash extensions, collagen injections – heck there are even ball of foot injections to make your high heels more comfortable.
Personally, I’m not ready to jump on the band-wagon. It’s too costly for one, and for another, I’m quite happy being imperfect. As I’ve grown up, I have realized I don’t want to look like every other chick out there. Different is good for me. But what’s your opinion? Will you be interested in getting a prescription for Latisse?
