Latisse® Eyelash Enhancement is incredibly effective
Not enough lashes? Ask you doctor about Latisse®. The first FDA approved treatment to grow longer, fuller lashes.
How Latisse® Eyelash Enhancement works
LATISSE® makes lash growth possible because of its active ingredient: bimatoprost. Although the precise mechanism of action is not known, research suggests that the growth of eyelashes occurs by increasing the percent 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.
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® Eyelash Enhancement FAQs
What is Latisse®?
Latisse solution is a prescription treatment applied nightly to the lashline of the upper eyelid. It is believed to affect the growth phase of the eyelash– increasing the length of the growth phase and increasing the number of lashes that are in the active growth phase. (The exact mechanism by which it does this is unknown). The active ingredient (bimatoprost) has been used for many years in a prescription eye drop used to treat patients with glaucoma. When it was noted that these patients were tending to grow thick, long eyelashes, the compound was reexamined for its aesthetic benefits.
What are the expected results?
The onset of effect is gradual. In the clinical trials, the majority of patients (78%) saw significant improvement by 2 months. At the end of 4 months-
* 25% increase in length * 106% increase in fullness/thickness * 18% increase in darkness
If you stop using Latisse®, it is expected that your eyelashes would return to their previous appearance over several weeks to months.
Who can and cannot use Latisse?
Anyone is a candidate unless they have a history of sensitivity to the active ingredient. Clients with a history of glaucoma would need to be monitored more closely by their ophthalmologist. Latisse can be used by contact lens wearers and any mascara use is fine. Even clients with current eyelash extensions can benefit.
