Grow your own lashes longer, thicker, and darker with LATISSE®.
What is LATISSE®?
LATISSE® is the first prescription lash extension treatment approved by the FDA for the treatment of small, short or thin eyelashes. When applied regularly, LATISSE® can result in the growth of significantly longer; fuller, darker upper eyelid lashes. The mechanism of the product’s active ingredient in LATISSE®, called bimatoprost, is not known precisely, but researchers believe the lash extension results are due to an increase of the percentage of lash development during the lash growth phase. About 90% of LATISSE® lash extension users report seeing a significant increase in the growth and fullness of their own eye lashes.
How is LATISSE® applied?
LATISSE® is a prescription product which you apply yourself at home, it is only available through a physician’s office. Prior to applying the product, you should wash your face and remove any makeup or creams. Contacts should also be removed. The product is then applied with a thin, single-use brush to the top of the eye lid along the lash line, at least 15 minutes prior to bed to give ample time for the LATISSE® to dry. LATISSE® is meant to be applied to the lid, not the eye itself.
When will I begin to see results from LATISSE®?
LATISSE® works gradually with initial results appearing in 4 to 8 weeks, after continued daily use. Full lash extension effects become evident at 16 weeks after the initial application. LATISSE® must be applied every day during the initial 16 weeks to see complete and optimal lash growth and lash extension effects; however, after this period many patients begin a maintenance phase applying LATISSE® 3-4 times per week to maintain lash extension results.
How long do results with LATISSE® last?
The lashes which grow as a result of the LATISSE® lash extension program will last for the natural duration period of the eyelash growth cycle, usually 1 to 2 months. However the effects of LATISSE® lash extensions will continue on indefinitely if the product is continued to be applied a minimum of 3-4 days per week after the initial 16 weeks.
