What is Latisse®?
Latisse® (Bimatoprost ophthalmic solution) 0.03% is the first and only FDA approved prescription treatment for hypotrichosis (thinning or not enough eye lashes). This product is a topically applied solution that will gradually make your lashes dramatically longer, thicker, and darker.
Who should use Latisse®?
If you have been unhappy with the length, thickness, or darkness of your eye lashes, Latisse is an ideal treatment because it lengthens the growth phase of eyelashes, creating longer, thicker, and darker lashers for most patients.
Latisse® should not be used if you are using, or have used, prescription products for any eye pressure problems, have eye pressure problems or glaucoma, are at risk for glaucoma, or are allergic to any of the ingredients in Latisse®. You should not use Latisse® if you are pregnant.
How do I use Latisse®?
Latisse is applied once a day at night-time. Only apply at the base of the upper eyelashes. Do NOT apply to the lower eyelid. Using the supplied brushes, you will sweep the product along your upper lash line (just as you would with eyeliner).
How soon will I see results with Latisse®?
Most patients will see significant results after 2 months of treatment. Full growth occurs gradually over the course of treatment (usually about 4 months). After that time, you can use it less frequently, such as twice weekly. If discontinued, lashes will gradually return to their previous appearance.
What are the most common side effects?
The most common side effects are itchy eyes and/or eye redness. They are usually mild and temporary and generally dissipate after a few weeks of using Latisse®.
Less common side effects include skin darkening, dry eye symptoms, and eye irritation. Rarely, there has been reported darkening of the iris (the colored part of the eye), which is likely permanent.
