LATISSE® is the first and only FDA-approved prescription treatment for inadequate or not enough eyelashes. Latisse helps them grow longer, fuller and darker.
LATISSE® solution is a once-a-day treatment you apply topically to the base of your upper eyelashes, as instructed by our doctor. Then, gradually, the results come in. You may start to see more length in as little as 4 weeks with Latisse and you should achieve full growth in 16 weeks. It’s not an illusion of growth. It’s your own eyelashes – only better.
LATISSE® works from the inside out. As the Latisse treatment progresses, you’ll first begin to see changes in length. Then, gradually, you’ll notice more thickness and darkness in your lashes. If you’re satisfied with your results by week 8 with Latisse, don’t stop there. Stick with the treatment. After week 16, you’ll see the full effect of LATISSE®
POTENTIAL SIDE EFFECTS
Although side effects are rare, Latisse requires careful instruction, checkups and your compliance to avoid undesirable side effects.
When applied properly, 95% of Latisse will stay on your eyelid and only 5% will come into contact with your eye. Only 4% of Latisse users experience a side effect.
The most common side effects are:
- Itchy eyes
- Eye redness
- Eye dryness
Uncommon side effects are:
Darkening eyelid skin at the lash-line. This effect may be reversible when Latisse is discontinued. Hair may grow in other areas where Latisse comes into repeated contact. This effect is reversible when Latisse is discontinued. In theory, iris eye colour could darken (eg. turning blue eyes brown) however this has never been reported when Latisse is applied to an eyelid. This effect is only a risk when bimatoprost is applied directly to an eye as an eye drop for an extended period of time. This effect is not reversible when Latisse is discontinued.
Latisse should not be used if you:
- are pregnant or breast feeding
- are prescribed a prostaglandin analog eye drop for glaucoma
- have an eye infection
- are having eye surgery
- have an allergic response to Latisse
