Latisse™ is a clinically proven treatment for lengthening and adding volume to sparse eyelashes through an easy, at-home treatment.
Latisse® solution is an actual growth treatment. It is the only FDA-approved treatment clinically proven to grow lashes. Latisse® grows lashes longer, fuller and darker. Apply once-a-day topically to the base of your upper eyelashes. You may start to see more length in as little as 4 weeks and you should achieve full growth in 16 weeks.
How Latisse® works
Latisse® makes lash growth possible because of its active ingredient: bimatoprost. Although the precise mechanism of action is unknown, 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.
What are the side effects of Latisse?
Most common side effects after using Latisse solution are an itching sensation in the eyes and/or eye redness. Latisse may cause eyelid skin darkening which is usually reversible. With proper application of the product and only applying the solution to the eyelash root, this problem is rare.
I heard it can change the color of my eyes!
Latisse was manufactured as a glaucoma medication and drops of the solution were administered directly into the eye. In rare occasions patients would see a darkening of the iris. Using Latisse for eyelashes, no solution is applied directly into the eye so the risk is extremely low.
What if I stop using Latisse?
Your lashes are expected to return to their previous appearance over the several weeks to months.
