LATISSE® enhances your natural eyelashes by promoting eyelash growth, resulting in longer, thicker, darker eyelashes.
LATISSE® is an innovative new FDA-approved treatment for eyelash lengthening. Available by prescription only, LATISSE® can help enhance patient eyelashes in three areas: length, thickness and darkness. For patients suffering from inadequate eyelashes (hypotrichosis), daily drops of LATISSE® can promote the growth of long and lush natural eyelashes.
As the first and only FDA approved cosmetic treatment for your lashes, LATISSE® has been proven to grow longer, fuller and darker eyelashes. By using LATISSE® once-a-day, patients will notice the cosmetic impact of this treatment gradually. During the consultation, we will explain the at-home process in which the solution will be applied to the base of your upper eyelashes. Results typically start to show in 8 weeks, with noticeable results in appearing in roughly 16 weeks.
The Science Behind LATISSE®
Bimatoprost (bimatoprost ophthalmic solution 0.03%) is the active ingredient in LATISSE® and what is responsible for lash growth possible. The exact cause of this growth is unknown, but LATISSE® is thought to affect the growth phase of eyelash hair in two distinct ways. First, LATISSE® prolongs the overall length of this growth phase, causing lashes to grow for a longer period of time. Second, Latisse® impacts the number of new eyelash hair created in this phase.
