Finally, you can have naturally longer, thicker, darker lashes! LATISSE® is the first and only FDA approved treatment for growing your eyelashes. It is a prescription treatment for eyelash hypotrichosis (having inadequate or not enough eyelashes), and is the only lash growth product of its kind available by prescription.
Latisse® enhances eyelashes through its active ingredient, bimatoprost, which works by increasing the length of the growth (anagen) phase of the eyelash hair cycle, as well as increasing the number of hairs in this growth phase.
As Latisse® works gradually, you may start to notice more length in as little as 4 weeks and you should achieve full growth in 16 weeks. To maintain your results, continue to use Latisse® as instructed or your lashes will gradually return to their previous appearance over weeks to months. Using Latisse® more than once a day will not increase the growth of your eyelashes, so apply only as directed.

The most common side effects after using LATISSE® are an itching sensation in the eyes and/or eye redness, which were reported in approximately 4% of clinical trial patients. LATISSE® solution may cause other less common side effects which typically occur close to where LATISSE® is applied. These include skin darkening, eye irritation, dryness of the eyes and redness of the eyelids.
If you develop a new ocular condition (e.g., trauma or infection), experience a sudden decrease in visual acuity, have ocular surgery, or develop any ocular reactions, particularly conjunctivitis and eyelid reactions, you should immediately seek your physician’s advice concerning the continued use of LATISSE® solution.
