LATISSE® solution is a new prescription treatment used to grow eyelashes longer, thicker and darker. This treatment, which is approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), provides a safe and effective alternative to eyelash extensions or messy mascara for women who have small or sparse eyelashes. With a simple daily treatment you apply in the comfort of your home, LATISSE can create more darker, longer, and thicker eyelashes.
LATISSE is easy to work into your nightly skin care routine. After you’ve cleansed your face and removed your contacts, simply apply a drop of LATISSE solution on the applicator provided and apply the solution to the base of the upper lashes, where they meet the eyelid skin. You should be careful not to over-apply the solution and blot away any excess. It’s a simple process that takes mere seconds to complete.
LATISSE is most effective when it is used as directed on a regular basis. To remind yourself about using it every night, it may help to store the product near your other skin care products or your toothbrush. If you miss a night, just continue on with your normal schedule – there’s no need to “double up” on treatments.
Remember that you won’t see results overnight – LATISSE gradually darkens, strengthens and lengthens the lashes over a period of several weeks. You should begin seeing results after about 4 weeks, with full results after about 2 months. Many women choose to chart their progress through their own series of before and after pictures, taken every few weeks. Results must be maintained through continued regular use of LATISSE.
How It Works
LATISSE is a prescription treatment that is applied to the base of the upper eyelashes, gradually creating darker, thicker and longer eyelashes over a period of weeks. The active ingredient in LATISSE, bimatoprost ophthalmic solution 0.03%, safely encourages more robust eyelash growth. Bimatoprost is seen as increasing the number of hairs in an active growth phase and the duration of the active growth phase. Continued use is required to maintain a fuller eyelash appearance – when use of LATISSE® is discontinued, the eyelashes will return to their pre-treatment state as the normal eyelash hair growth cycle takes place.
Ideal for many women who want to enjoy naturally thicker eyelashes, LATISSE should be used for the upper lashes only. Because the eye area can be a particularly sensitive part of the body, you need to be aware of the possible side effects of using LATISSE, such as itching, redness, increased intraocular pressure, and darkening of eyelid skin. Side effects are very infrequent and will be discussed fully before you begin treatment.
