What is Latisse?
Latisse is the first and only FDA approved treatment to grow eyelashes, making them longer, thicker, and darker. It is applied topically, directly to the upper eyelid lashline.
You may be surprised to learn that Latisse was discovered while treating glaucoma patients with bimatoprost. Bimatoprost is the active ingredient in Latisse. After receiving bimatoprost eye drops glaucoma patients were returning to their ophthalmologist with longer, thicker and darker lashes. Allergan then developed the product into a safe topical application that works very well in patients with thin, very light, and short eyelashes.
If you stop using this lash enhancer, your lashes with gradually return to their previous appearance.
What Are the Benefits of Latisse and when will I begin to notice them?
The full effects of Latisse are most noticeable after 16 weeks of treatment, when you can see the full results. The benefits of Latisse can include improvement in the thickness and fullness of your lashes, length of lashes, and significant darkening of the lash. By increasing the growth phase of your lashes, Latisse is able to increase the growth rate of your eyelash hair growth cycle, which is why continuous treatment is required to continue to maintain your improvements.
