Latisse: Longer, Fuller Fabulous Lashes…Here’s Amy’s Story

When we’re young most of us do a few things that are not all that wise. For Amy, now an energetic mom of two in her early 40s, it was a night in college when she agreed to head to a party on the back of a motorcycle.

What started out as fun ended up in an accident that shredded her clothing, and in part, her face. Luckily, her injuries were not life-threatening, and she healed quickly.

“After the accident, my face was scraped up pretty badly,” Amy says matter-of-factly. “I was just acting like a stupid college kid.  The person driving the bike made a hard left in front of a Jeep, and we went flying. It could have been a lot worse.”

She adds that at the time, her main concern was that her prized flannel jacket had been ruined.

“It was the grunge fashion phase, and I really loved that jacket. I was so mad that it had been ruined. I look back and cannot believe it – I mean, who wears a flannel jacket in Tampa?” she says, laughing.

While the jacket literally helped save her skin, there was one minor but permanent injury from the accident.  A small section of the eyelashes above her left eye never grew back.

“I was always insecure about that spot,” says Amy. “Probably very few people really noticed it, but I was very aware that it was there.”

“Last year, I was talking with a friend, and I noticed how gorgeous her eyelashes were. She told me about Latisse, and I went to The Skin Center to learn more.  The women there were wonderful –  they were so helpful and easy to talk to. I was completely confident working with them.”

After following the prescribed application schedule for several months, not only did Amy’s lashes grow back where there had been none, her overall lashes grew thicker, longer and darker.

“I followed the routine that the staff at the Skin Center laid out for me, and cannot believe how great my results have been,” she says.

The First and Only FDA-Approved Eyelash Growth Serum

Latisse is the first and only FDA-approved eyelash growth serum for women and men with thin or sparse eyelashes. Latisse works by extending the growth (anagen) phase of the eye lash lifecycle, allowing lashes to grow for a longer period of time.  A once-daily application to the base of the upper eyelashes  results in longer, thicker and more beautiful eyelashes.

Results can be seen in as little as six weeks, with full results in about 16 weeks. To maintain results, continued eyelash growth treatment with Latisse lash thickener is recommended.

Amy’s New Lashes

Over a year later, Amy remains thrilled with her results.

“I still can’t believe how well the product works – I was shocked at how great my lashes look.  You do have to stick with the application though.  Over the holidays, I was off my usual schedule and forgot to apply for several weeks.  I did start to notice the difference and thought, ‘there they are again, those crappy motorcycle accident lashes!’  I now use it three times a week to maintain.”

Others have noticed Amy’s fabulous lashes as well.

“Definitely, other people have noticed, I’m a tom boy type, so people did see the difference. I’ve even had people say I must be wearing false eyelashes.”

She adds, “I have and will continue to recommend Latisse to my friends.  I’m a confident person, but this one thing was always there, bothering me.  I absolutely love my results.”
