What is LATISSE®?
LATISSE is the first solution approved by the FDA to treat hypotrichosis. It helps grow eyelashes and makes them longer, thicker, and darker.
How does LATISSE ® work?
LATISSE seems to affect the growth phase of your eyelashes by increasing the duration of this phase and increasing the number of hairs in their growth phase. This enables your lashes to grow longer, thicker, and darker.
How do I receive LATISSE ® treatments?
You will apply LATISSE once daily by yourself, in the 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 overnight. They are gradual. We recommend that you take a "Before" photograph of yourself prior to beginning your LATISSE 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 LATISSE ® replace my mascara?
No, LATISSE does not replace your mascara. However, mascara is a great complement to LATISSE™ to help make your new 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 LATISSE.
What are the possible side effects of LATISSE®?
Some patients have reported that after using LATISSE solution they experienced an itching sensation in the eyes and/or eye redness. Other less common side effects include skin darkening, eye irritation, dryness of the eyes, and redness of the eyelids.
