How LATISSE Works

Also known as bimatoprost, Latisse is derived from prostaglandin that helps with hair growth. When concentrated on the eyes, it promotes the eyelashes to be thicker and longer per strand. Additionally, the medication also helps in multiplying the number of hairs, making the eyelashes appear heavier, which some find appealing and sexy.  You can target the growth phase of your eyelash hair cycle with Latisse to increase the quality of lashes and their length.

What to Expect

This at-home treatment has to be purchased at a pharmacy with a prescription. You can then take it home to apply the medication yourself. You will apply the Latisse to your top eyelid (just like liquid eyeliner). Do this right before bed. Latisse is easy to use, and includes step-by-step instructions. With a clean face – no makeup or contact lenses – Latisse is applied with a single-use applicator on the upper eyelid. A clean applicator allows the eyelids to adequately absorb the medication. It is not necessary to treat the lower eyelid because blinking will cause the medication on the upper eyelid to spread, which ensures the results are even. Ideally, regular daily use up to 16 weeks will render optimal results.

Ideal Candidate

Latisse has been available since 2008 when the FDA approved that it is safe to use by most patients. Those who have skin or eye conditions, allergies and other problems related to eyes must not use Latisse. It is also not recommended for pregnant or nursing mothers. Generally, Latisse complications are very rare. It is normal to get irritation, dryness or redness, but all these side effects can be easily managed. Consult with a doctor to discuss Latisse in further detail to make sure it is the best option for the desire results.

LATISSE FAQs

Where To Purchase?

Latisse is not available in drugstores and can only be bought with a medical prescription. An evaluation is required before any doctor can prescribe the medication. A thorough exam for eye-related conditions will help evaluate if Latisse is safe to use for the patient’s circumstances.

Eyelid Stain?

It is common among patients that using Latisse can cause hyperpigmentation, which can make the eyes appear darker. It is a possible side effect but it is very rare. In the few instances that skin darkening has been reported, the condition reversed itself and the eyelids went back to their normal skin color when patients stopped using Latisse.

Iris Stain?

Another possible side effect may be brown pigmentation in the iris. This side effect is not limited to brown color and can vary patient to patient. Patients must understand this side effect before taking Latisse even though it has been minimally reported.

Little Amount of Eyelashes?

There is a medical condition called hypotridchosis when eye lashes are shorter than normal and look spare. Latisse is an ideal solution for this condition. Patients treated with Latisse report a boost in confidence with Latisse’s natural looking results.
