What is LATISSE™?
LATISSE™ solution is a prescription treatment for hypotrichosis used to grow eyelashes, making them longer, thicker, and darker. LATISSE is the only prescription treatment approved by the FDA for inadequate or insufficient eyelashes.
What is Hypotrichosis?
Hypotrichosis is another name for having inadequate or not enough eyelashes.
How does LATISSE™ work?
The active ingredient in LATISSE™ is bimatoprost. Although the precise mechanism of action is not known, research suggests that the growth of eyelashes occurs by increasing the percentage of hair, and the duration of the anagen (or growth) phase. Lashes can grow longer, thicker, and darker because bimatoprost can prolong this growth phase.
How soon will I see results?
LATISSE™ users may see results starting at four weeks with full results after 16 weeks. The growth is gradual.
Are there possible side effects?
The most common side effect after using LATISSE™ solution is an 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 that 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.
Is LATISSE™ a replacement for mascara?
No, LATISSE™ does not work in place of mascara. However, mascara is a nice complement to LATISSE™ to help make your new longer eyelashes look even more attractive.
