Latisse Eyelash Treatment

An Innovation in Beautiful Eyelashes

If your eyelashes are thinning over time or are just not enough, LATISSE can grow your lashes longer, fuller and darker. This FDA-approved prescription treatment for inadequate or insufficient eyelashes works over a 16-week period to give you stunning lashes without the need for extensions.

LATISSE® makes lash growth possible because of the active ingredient bimatoprost. Research suggests that the growth of eyelashes occurs by increasing the percentage of hairs in, and the duration of, the anagen phase (or growth phase) of the hair cycle.

Clinically proven results you can see over time

Latisse is easy to use, FDA-approved and effective. It's a once-a-day treatment you apply topically to the base of your upper eyelashes. Patients in a clinical trial saw results gradually over time, starting at 4 weeks with full results after 16 weeks.

LATISSE Frequently Asked Questions

What is Latisse?

Latisse solution is a prescription treatment for hypotrichosis used to grow eyelashes, making them longer, thicker and darker. Eyelash hypotrichosis is another name for inadequate or not enough eyelashes.

How does Latisse work?

The active ingredient in Latisse is bimatoprost. Although the precise mechanism is not known, research suggests that eyelash growth occurs by increasing the percentage of hairs in, and the duration of, the anagen (or growth) phase. Lashes can grow longer, thicker and darker because bimatoprost can also prolong this growth phase.

Latisse users may see results beginning at 4 weeks, with full results seen after 16 weeks. Mascara is a nice complement to Latisse to help make your new longer eyelashes look even more attractive.

How do I apply Latisse?

Latisse is a once-a-day treatment you apply yourself each evening to the base of the upper eyelashes. If you miss an application or a few, don't try to catch up. Just apply the Latisse solution the next evening and stay on schedule. If you stop using Latisse, your eyelashes are expected to return to their previous appearance over several weeks to months.

Latisse Safety Information

The most common side effects after using LATISSE are an itching sensation in the eyes and/or eye redness, which were reported in approximately 4% of clinical trial patients. LATISSE solution may cause other less common side effects which typically occur close to where LATISSE is applied. These include skin darkening, eye irritation, dryness of the eyes and redness of the eyelids.
