Latisse® Eyelash Solution

Grow your own eyelashes longer, thicker and darker with Latisse®, the first and only FDA approved prescription treatment for inadequate lashes! Latisse® solution is a once-a-day treatment you apply topically to the base of your upper eyelashes. Then, gradually, the results come in. You may start to see more length in as little as 4 weeks and you should achieve full growth in 16 weeks. It’s not an illusion of growth. It’s your own eyelashes – only better!

What is Latisse®?

Latisse® is the first and only FDA-approved prescription treatment for inadequate or not enough lashes, growing them longer, fuller and darker.

How does Latisse® work?

Latisse® is believed to affect the growth (anagen) phase of the eyelash hair cycle in two ways: first, it increases the length of this phase; and second, it increases the number of hairs in this growth phase. The exact way it works is unknown.

Is it safe?

Latisse® is absolutely safe. In fact, the active ingredient in Latisse®, bimatoprost opthalamic solution, started out as an FDA approved medicated eye drop. Soon patients using the eye drop started experiencing the side effect of longer, fuller, and darker lashes. This led the eye drop manufacturer, Allergan, to study the active ingredient and after a clinical trial, Latisse® was born!

Side effects with Latisse® are very rare, however, the most common side effect after using Latisse®solution are a temporarily itching sensation in the eyes and/or eye redness. This was reported in approximately 4% of patients. Latisse®solution may cause other less common side effects which typically occur on the skin close to where Latisse® is applied, or in the eyes. These include skin darkening, eye irritation, dryness of the eyes, and redness of the eyelids. Please see the Latisse® website for a full list of potential side effects.

How do I apply Latisse?

Latisse® solution is a once-a-day treatment you apply yourself each evening to the base of the upper eyelashes. Do not apply in your eye or to the lower lid, because excess hair growth outside the treatment area may occur. For full instructions and diagrams, see the information provided in your Latisse® kit.

When will I see results?

Latisse® users may start to see longer lashes at 4 weeks, with full growth at 16 weeks. The growth is gradual over time.

What happens when if I stop using Latisse®?

If you stop using Latisse®, your eyelashes are expected to return to their previous appearance over several weeks to months
