What is Latisse?
Latisse is the first and only FDA approved prescription treatment for Hypotrichosis (inadequate or not enough eyelashes) used to grow longer, thicker, and darker eyelashes. Latisse helps stimulate the active growth phase of the lashes with mild changes in about two weeks’ time and significant improvement by two months of treatment.
How to use Latisse
Latisse should be used at night and applied after cleansing your face and removing contact lenses (if applicable). Latisse is applied with a sterile applicator along the skin of the upper eyelid margin at the base of the eyelashes. Do not apply Latisse to the lower eyelash line. Blot away any excess solution outside of the upper eyelid margin.
When will you see results?
The onset of effect is gradual and is not significant in patients until 2 months of use. To maintain results, continued use of Latisse is necessary.
What are the side effects?
Reversible eyelid skin darkening may occur. Increased pigmentation of the iris may also occur and is likely not reversible.
