LATISSE® is a remarkable treatment for longer, thicker, and darker lashes. LATISSE® (bimatoprost ophthalmic solution) 0.03% is the first and only prescription treatment approved by the FDA for inadequate or insufficient eyelashes.
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 prolongs this growth phase. At first you will begin to see changes in length, then will come the thickening and darkening of the lashes.
We believe you need to be well-educated about LATISSE® so that you can make an informed decision prior to purchasing a prescription. We will meet with you, address any concerns you may have, and go over the application process. We also will talk about the results you can expect once you begin using LATISSE®.
LATISSE® is easy to use, FDA approved and very effective. It’s a once-a-day, at-home treatment that you apply topically to the base of your upper eyelashes. Results are gradual, starting at about 4 weeks with full results after 16 weeks. If you stop using LATISSE® your eyelashes will eventually return to their previous appearance. This can take several weeks to a couple of months to happen.
LATISSE® was developed through years of research by Allergan, a pharmaceutical leader with over 60 years of expertise in prescription eye care products.
