LATISSE is the first solution approved by the FDA and prescribed by our physician to treat hypotrichosis and grow eyelashes making them longer, thicker and darker.
Everyone wants big, bright, beautiful eyes. However, Eyelash Hypotrichosis is (another name for having inadequate or not enough eyelashes) can make that hard for many women.
How does LATISSE work?
Eyelashes grow in a cycle. LATISSE increases the percentage of hairs in the active growth phase as well as make the active growth phase longer which in turn, allows your lashes to grow longer, thicker and darker.
How do I receive treatments?
You will apply LATISSE once-a-day yourself each evening to the base of the upper eyelashes. Simply follow the basic guidelines in the product package and your results will come gradually over time. Great results don’t happen over night. They are gradual. We recommend that you take a “Before” photograph of yourself prior to beginning your treatments. Most patients generally begin to see results in about four weeks. Taking additional photographs about every four weeks will help you see the full effect of your eyelash transformation.
Does it replace my mascara?
No, it does not replace your mascara. However, mascara is a great complement to LATISSE™ to help make your new longer eyelashes look even longer and more attractive.
What will happen to my eyelashes if I stop using LATISSE?
Your eyelashes will return to their previous appearance over several weeks if you stop using it.
What are the possible side effects of LATISSE?
Some patients have reported that after using the solution they experienced an itching sensation in the eyes and/or eye redness. Other less common side effects include skin darkening where it is applied, eye irritation, dryness of the eyes, and redness of the eyelids.
Could LATISSE cause the color of my eyes to change?
Patients using a similar drug, placed directly into the eye, to treat elevated intraocular pressure/glaucoma have experienced a change in the color of their iris pigment. However, patients using LATISSE have not reported any iris pigment changes. This is most likely because LATISSE is only 5% of the volume an is applied to the base of the upper eyelashes vs.. when applied directly into the eye. Most of of it is absorbed by the skin at the upper eyelid margin.
Is LATISSE safe?
LATISSE™ is an FDA-approved prescription treatment for hypotrichosis used to grow eyelashes, making them longer, thicker and darker. The FDA reviewed the clinical study and found the product to be safe and effective for its intended use if used as prescribed.
